80's Whirlpool washer? Agitator?
I'm orig owner of Whirlpool belt drive LA5700XKWO washer, circa 1980.
One piece agitator barely moves back and forth but rod up center of agitator (like a driveshaft) vigorously spins back and forth (smooth action and powerful).
I think a "drive block" connects the rod to the agitator.
Parts store has drive block for $16 but I have a problem.
After removing plastic cover on agit, rod and nut are exposed. I went to remove nut but rod spins....
1. any You Tube video of this repair, belt drive agitator removal? I searched and searched.
2. Is this worth repairing? I think it is built MUCH BETTER
than current washers.
Thanks for any help on this
