Step 3. Put some tape over the lid of your washing machine.
Step 4. Tilt your washing machine back and lay it on the rear panel.
Step 5. Using an adjustable wrench and a hammer, take out the bolt holding the rotor assembly to the base of the washing machine.
Step 6. Pull the rotor assembly off your washing machine.
Step 7. Use a 10mm socket wrench to take out the six screws holding the drive motor stator to the base of your washing machine.
Step 8. Set the drive motor stator on the ground.
Step 9. Take out the three bolts holding the shift actuator with a 5/16 socket.
Step 10. Pull the shift actuator off the washing machine.

Step 12. Get your new agitator coupling out of its pack.
Step 13. Apply some grease around the coupling.
Step 14. Insert the new coupling into the shift actuator.
Step 15. Align the large end of the spring on the washer’s base to the groove in the coupling.
Step 16. Put the shift actuator assembly back in place and secure it by applying the 5/16 bolts.
Step 17. Put the drive motor stator back in place at the base of the washing machine and secure it by applying the six 10mm bolts.
