Washer Agitator, New Style Turquoise!
Note: I've closed
these out, and have none left.
They are often found on Ebay, though, posted
Here's a great replacement for your tired old Maytag wringer
One thing I like about this one is the integral plastic splines. The
old ones had metal splines that rusted to the shaft, which meant having to use
everything short of dynamite to remove them (I use a modified 2 x 4 and a
huge puller, supplied by Maytag, to help break them free. Works on about
half them; the other half have to be broken off) Here's one of the few places that plastic has
actually been a big improvement.
This replaces original Maytag part numbers A4559, K1392, and A4525, and is
used in all E, J, and N (including N2) series models.
This picture makes it appear taller than it actually
is (Wish I'd had this camera back in Junior High School when I measured 4'
Stands approx 11-1/2" tall, and measures about 13-3/8" in
As can be seen here, the splines are a permanent part
of this agitator, with an insert pressed into place at the factory. The rubber stop ring
(#15494) is still used
to hold the agitator down, and I recommend always installing a new one along
with a new agitator.
I recently sold the last agitators I had for $49.50, but with the new US Postal
Service rates, shipping costs have gone crazy (Priority Mail on this
had more than *doubled* to some parts of the US with the latest increases!)
So if you find one in stock somewhere, be sure to check on shipping
costs before ordering it.
To email me a question specifically about this part,
Note: I get good/used agitators in once in a while, usually
in this turquoise version, so contact
me (if you can wait a bit) for one of those.
