Default Top agitator slipping
Model Number: LA780XTNO   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Upper agitator is slipping on the "engaged" portion of agitating. The dogs and (probably) ring of teeth they are supposed to engage with are not meshing enough to turn the upper agitator with the lower when they are supposed to. If I order the COMPLETE AGITATOR ASSEMBLY (#AP3094459), does it all come together with grease applied etc. (?), or should I just get the AGITATOR REPAIR KIT (#AP3138838) and the grease. Just concerned 'cause the other set of teeth the dogs engage with looks to be part of the upper agitator itself, and (I think) I want to get all new "teeth".

In most cases replacing the agitator clutch dogs (agitator repair kit, part number AP3138838) is good enough to fix the problem, but if you're not sure about "teeth" then it's better to replace the whole agitator (part number AP3094459 ). It comes as an assembly and you need just unscrew the old one and install the new one.

- Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool direct drive washer Model LA7800XTN0

Good luck.
Gene.

How is the shaft secured prior to removing the bolt for disassembly?Any special tools required? My unit is a LSR7233DQ0. Thanks.

The shaft is the part of the transmission (gear case). No any special tools needed.
