I recently replaced the agitator because it wobbled even after tightening the bolt.

The agitator and washplate now come loose after one load.

Hi,

Its possibly the hub underneath the washplate, that's stripped.

Here's the hub for your model, its located underneath the washplate:
W10528947 Hub


I'd first check your hub to see if the teeth are starting to grind down.

The hub has screws that hold it in place, you will see them once you remove the washplate.

Look at these photos below of the teeth grinded down to smooth, then compare them to yours.

Let us know what you find.
