For years, top load washer buyers had to choose agitator vs. impeller. While both technologies have improved dramatically, you’re still going to get the deepest cleans for your most soiled items in a washer with an agitator and the most gentle clean for your most delicate items in a washer with an impeller.

With Whirlpool’s 2-in-1 Removable Agitator, you can get both the heavy-duty cleaning power of an agitator and the gentle wash action of an impeller washer -- all in one machine!

How it Works

Removing the Agitator is easy. The large grip on top functions as a trigger, which releases the secured locks at the stem. Swapping the agitator back is as simple as placing it back and in and giving it a satisfying twist to lock the stem back in place.

Care Tip

Both washing machines with agitators and impellers function optimally when they’re properly loaded. For both, make sure the clothes are placed evenly around the central spindle or wash plate so the wash basket is balanced. Unbalanced loads aren’t cleaned as effectively or can damage the machine.
