Yes, if you have the gear I am interested. I have not seperated the old one from the shaft yet but I assume it is not a major problem.

Just to be sure I'm digging for the right one can you remove the old one and post a photo of it?
Hope you find our website helpful.

The part number on this one reads, 8546459.

Our parts affiliate AppliancePartsPros shows it as out of stock and for $35.33 at this time.

If you want the one I have in the photo send me a PM or email along with what you think is a fair price and I'll see what I can do for you.

Hope you find our website helpful.

FSP just stand for Factory Service Parts, or something like that. :)


Your part # 63273 and the one I have 8546459 both seem to sub to each other.
Whirlpool direct drive washer have been using the same basic gear case for sure so this part should work fine to replace the broken one you have.


I will send you a PM for payment and shipping info...

Does that gear break often in these gear boxes?

Where can  get a good agitator shaft video. The video posted in my thread shows taking the parts off the shaft on the bottom side of the gear but not the top. I did see a video on the complete removal and replacement but I can not find it now. I think I got it all together properly but....
