The Agitator: The agitator is the parts that agitates and clean the clothes. It goes on the gearcase or transmission shaft. The gearcase or transmission shaft has some splines cut on it and the agitator also has some splines molded in it.

The Agitator Dogs: These agitator dogs are made of hard rubber like material and are used to catch half of the agitation of the gearcase shaft to make the top part of a dual action agitator turn in one direction.
When they wear out, the washer starts to make a rattling noise and the top part pf the agitator will not turn to push the clothes down to the agitator. Click here to see how it is done
