Having a problem with my Washer , the agitator seems to spin too freely.
I wanted to check this out by removing , how it the top removed the
agitator (where you put in fabric softener) ...tried to screw off . Just
seems to turn continuiously. Is there any trick or is mine stripped or something (may be part of the problem) ..wanted to try tightening things up. Did not want to break off the top .

Without the complete model number it is just a guessing. So I'm guessing your washer is one of the direct drive washers family and the problem is a worn out agitator dogs. In such case you can use the information from one of our previous posts: Top agitator slipping

Default Agitator repair

I have a kitchen aid washer madel KAWE570BWH0. Having problems with the clothing rapping around the agitator , getting jammed. I ordered the agitator repair kit thinking it may be the agitor dogs were worn. I also noticed that spacer thrust seemed to be different than the one I took off the machine, new one had these tiny clips on the slots (was not sure if the needed to be clipped off?) ...anyway I did the replacement, all seemed to fit in properly, but the problem seems to continue.
There is a clip under the agitor ...do not see an obvious problem wit with it ...not sure what that is supposed to look like . Any help would be appreciated
