What is an agitator?


Wiki User

The agitator is part on a washer. It is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is that the agitator is splined (grooves that are cut into the metal) and they slip onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling.
