ETiFTTXKT02 agitator dog seal
« on: February 07, 2009, 06:50:26 PM »
Machine wouldn't spin looked under it and thought it was a broken belt "ha ha newby"
Found instructions disassembled and found out motor coupong was busted "damn good"
I believe what I thought was a broken belt was the seal that comes in the agitator dog kit just kinda hanging there.
Should I worry about that too or just put in a new motor coupling?  If I have to go further where do I get instructions for the agitator dog parts?

If you found it under the washer it is not the seal that comes in the agitator dog kit.

Could you post a photo of it?

Put the new coupling on and give it a try.

Not a model number. The model number can be found on the model/serial number tag under your washer lid.

Could you look for the model number and then post it here, thanks.

Just talke to a local guy & she said that the foam ring is just to dampen sound.  He compared to the rings they use when they turn brake drums & said it isn't a seal and won't bother anything unless I want to sleep in the laundry room.  Garage maybe laundry room no.

What you found was a vibration dampener. Many folks actually brought it in to my shop to get a replacement because they found it under the washer. Even though the thing was flimsy rubber with corners they still thought it was some sort of belt.
