whirlpool top load washer agitator slipping
« on: December 27, 2009, 12:04:59 PM »

agitator seems to be slipping, skips a few and then turns a little during the wash cycle. Do I need the agitator repair kit?

Thanks

Hi,

The agitator repair kit or just the dogs.
If you need help replacing the dogs in the agitator you may find this topic helpful.

I replaced the dogs and now it agitates just like when it was new.... really cool!

I told myself a long time a go I would draw the line at working on washing machines, but now I know I can fix at least the agitation issues on this type of washer. Glad I got to test it at my house first!

Thanks!
