Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't the upper portion of the agitator work?

A:

The upper portion of the agitator is supposed to move or ratchet in one direction only. It needs a certain amount of friction or resistance on the upper portion of the agitator in order to ratchet or move in one direction. Most likely the agitate dogs are worn out and needs replaced. In the image that I added the dogs are key#5.

To replace the dogs key# 1, 2, 20 and 4 will need to be removed to gain access to the dogs to replace them.
