Red face Whirlpool agitator hardly moves
Model Number: LSQ9549LWO   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

I ran it empty. Agitator hardly moves. but water moves around great like from the bottom up. It this normal? I can stop it with my hand for a second. With clothes in, it hardly moves. Once I put clothes in, it seams to move everything around slowly.I don't know if this is normal for the model?
I'd appreciate your help.

I have the same problem. I read in a site I am trying to find again that the top portion of the agitator needs to be repaired. It is a kit with little cams called "dogs" that move the top part of the agitator. It seems to be easy to replace.

Angry Thanks - please keep me posted

hope you do fine the info you are looking for again. And please - forward to me too.
It's strance though - with nothing but water in there it sure seems to be moving the water around. Mostly from bottom up to the top and back down, but the agitator does not go back and forth much. I thought maybe it was supposed to be like that. Of course, the directions say nothing about this,

Default Whirlpool Agitator

Go to this site (partselectdotcom) and you'll see the problem and solution:
(iadded XXX at te beginning in case this enamil does not take it)
xxxhttp://www.********************.com/repair.aspx?appliance=washer&part=whirlpool-cog

Then find the part on this second site, whre you can read reviews from customers:

xxxhttp://www.********************.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=838429&ModelNum=LSQ9549LW 0&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=3&Selected=SCD6HOL8&P osition=0&mfg=Whirlpool&Type=&Mark=0

Good luck. By the way I did purchase the part I needed but not from any of this sites.

Default I think I have the same issue -- looking to confirm

I believe I have the same issue as this person.

My model # is LSQ9549LW0 and I downloaded the manuals from whirlpool's website for my washer.

Based on the part names listed in the "Repair Parts List" PDF for this model, this is what is happening: The "Agitator" is moving fine. The "Clothes Mover" is not moving at all.

Can someone confirm what i need to replace here? and if there is a specific replacement kit for this, can I get a part number for it?

Also, if "Dogs" are what i need to replace... is that ALL i need to replace? Or are there assoicated parts that need to be done at the same time?

Additional follow up: I can get the DOGS alone (P/N 80040) and the CAM KIT, which says it includes the dogs as well (P/N 285809). Do I need the cam kit as well? or just the dogs?

Thanks!

It turns out the dogs were all i had to replace. I couldn't find a CAM kit, but a local appliance store had the dogs. now it is working great. I took it apart and reassembled it using just the Repair Part manual downloaded from the Whirlpool website. That was enough to do it, it was pretty easy.
