Good afternoon,

Where can I find a dual action auger agitator for my WP DD washer? It is one of the more entry level models so it has the two-piece surgilator, straight-vein agitators in it. It does however have a 3.2 cu. ft. tub so I know a DAA would fit and I like the wash action of the DAA better over all. However, I can't tell which agitators are the DAA's just by searching online. So a point in the right direction would be great.

Several part #'s....3951744 is the Whirlpool version. Better still is the Kenmore version....auger corkscrew section is angled/pitched lower for more rollover. I do have a used Whirlpool version. kenmore part # is 285727.

Thanks @coldspot66

I think I'll likely order the Kenmore version.

Is the agitator bolt the same as in my two-piece surgilator or will I need a new one of those as well?

The bolt should be the same.

Kenmore agitator ordered

Says it should be here Tuesday. I also ordered a new bolt because I figured the other one was probably rusty since I think the agitator in the machine is original. Figured it wouldn't hurt to just replace the whole thing.

My brother-in-law is going to help me fix the neutral drain on the washer as well so also bought a refurbed transmission as well as new commercial-grade clutch and coupler. There's nothing wrong with the coupler as far as I know but I'm not sure how old it is so thought we'd just replace it while the machine is apart.

Family will be in town over Christmas so I think repairs should take place around that time.

Merry Christmas to me? I guess? LOL

Iím confused by when you said itís a two piece agitator with straight vanes? If itís a Whirlpool model with an original Whirlpool agitator then the Kenmore auger wonít fit on the lower piece post because the Kenmore agitators had a longer post for the auger to sit on, VS the Whirlpool model agitators like mine in the photo. If it has a shorter post like mine does it will require a Whirlpool model auger with the thin or thicker fins around it.
