Question about Whirlpool LSQ9610L Top Load Washer
I have a Whirlpool LSR7233000 Washer. Recently, the agitator does not seems to function correctly as it only has minimal agitation and does not "agitate" clothes from top to bottom. This occurs even with minimal washer loads. Is there an easy way to remove the agitator and sees if a "stuck/torn" piece of clothing may be hindering this motion?
The Agitator "dogs"/cams have given up the ghost and need to be replaced. Access to them is easy. Before starting the repair, have this part in hand.
Here's a tool list;
1.) small flat screwdriver (to remove the top part of the agitator)
2.) 3/8" ratchet
3.) 8" X 3/8" extension (for the ratchet)
4.) 7/16" socket
Take a gander at this pic... you'll be going after #10 'cause that's the problem.
All you gotta do is remove the top parts from the agitator to access it. See #2 in the diagram? That's the bolt holding the agitator to the transmission shaft. Remove that, then lift the whole agitator out of the tub. Now place the agitator on the floor and put both of your feet on the base. Now lift the agitator (#3) off the base (#4). Place one of your hands into the opening of the top of the agitator (to hold the cam (#9) in place) then turn the agitator over. The cam will slide right out.
Now you'll see the cam "dogs"... little white curved plastic doo-hickeys. All you gotta do now is install the new cam assy. and rebuild the agitator! Cool, huh? All it takes is about $15 bucks in parts and ~20 minutes.
Let me know if you have further questions. And don't forget to rate my solution as "FixYa"! Thanks, BB
