Powered by AppliancePartsPros

Used on top load washers with split agitators, this kit contains all the components to repair a slipping or stuck top agitator. The top half of the split agitator is designed to spin freely in one direction, but catch in the other to facilitate the proper tumbling of clothes. If the top spins in both directions, or makes a ratcheting sounds during operation, the agitator dogs are failing and this kit will fix it.
