A bad agitator could be the reason why your Whirlpool direct drive washer is making noises and not cleaning the clothes properly.
If this part is a dual action one, it consist of two parts. The top part that looks like and auger is used to push down the clothes so the bottom part agitates and cleans the clothes.
The agitator has splines cut inside of the hole that the transmission shaft fits on. Sometimes when the washer is overloaded it strips the splines and the washer won’t oscillate to clean the clothes.
I have not seen this problem too often, the most common problem is with the dogs or cogs.
Calling a repair company to check and repair the washer could be very expensive. Let me show you about how much could be the cost of replacing the timer in your washer.
You will have to pay a service call to come to your house and check the washer and that could be from $70 to $100.
If the problem is a bad agitator assembly the cost for a replacement could be about $75.
Then you have to pay for the labor to replace it and that could from $60 to $90 an hour with a minimum of 1 hour.
Plus you have to wait in your house until the repairman could get there to do the repair.
The total cost could be about $235 for a repair that you could very easy do it yourself for just $75 the price of the part.
