Noise from Whirlpool/Kenmore washing machines / agitator not turning


Many toploading Whirlpool (and Kenmore -- they're made by Whirlpool) washing machines have a ratcheting agitator. The agitator moves only one direction instead of back and forth. There are small pieces (called agitator dogs) that allow this to happen. However, since they are mad out of rather soft plastic, they tend to wear out. The result is a ratcheting or growling noise during agitation (wash cycle) Luckily, they are reasonably cheap (usually under $20) and relatively easy to fix. Try to turn the agitator by hand. It should turn freely one direction and not the other. If it goes both ways freely or clicks and slips one way, you need new agitator dogs. Pull the cap off of the top of the agitator (there are usually two tabs on the side that must be depressed to do this) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator. Pull out the plastic plate that is on top of the dogs (again, you may have to move two tabs to pull this out.) You should see dogs that look just like the new ones except with no teeth on them. Pull the old ones out and put the new ones in the same way. Reassembly is the same as disassembly except in reverse. It should be quieter and wash better now, as the agitator was barely turning before, if at all.

Kitchenaid washing machine model: KAWS50JQ4 Basket does not agitate. How do I determine what parts to replace


Does the washer make a noise when it SHOULD be agitating or is it completely silent? If it's completely silent then you should check the lid switch. When closing the lid, when the lid is less than 4 inches from being completely shut, you should head and/or feel a "click" when lowering the lid. If you don't hear or feel a click, your lid switch is broken. If the washer makes a noise when it should be agitating but isn't, then it's likely that your motor coupler is broken. This is part number 285753A and goes between the motor and the transmission. Should cost around $20. If the coupler is out, the machine will not spin either, leaving clothes drained, but still very soggy. If the bottom part of the agitator moves well but the top does not, i.e. "lazy agitator" then you need a part called dogs, part number 80040, in the top of the agitator. Should cost around $3-$5

Agitator making clicking noise when washing clothes; clothes wrapping around agitator


Hi,
If this a whirlpool brand washer, there are sone parts bad in the agitator it's self. These parts are called dogs and they make the agitator rachet so that the top half only goes one direction. Does this sound like what you are experiencing? If so, let me know and I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Top load won't agitate or spin


If it is a direct drive (no belt) Your motor coupler is broken. The washer would make a grinding noise but do nothing. Basically it is like a belt it connects motor to tranny. It is a fairly inexpensive part $20-25 retail.

Agitator ''dogs'' not gripping, agitator spins freely; tub rocks


Likely a broken dog itself was making the noise. They should all be replaced.
