The agitator dogs only make the top part of the agitator work. you can check the dogs by grabbing the top of the agitator and turning it right then left. If it doesnt lock when turned back the other direction they are bad. If thats not it, it could be your drive coupler. But its only the drive coupler if it doesnt spin. Also check the lid switch. But if its the lid switch Your washer will stay full of water and not drain out. But check your dogs. There are cheap and thats probably your problem.

Whirlpool ultimate care II agitator seems as if it is not woking properly


this is for the whirlpool washer,if you grab the top of the agitator can you spin it both ways without it grabbing,it should only spin one way,if you can spin it both ways you have bad dogs,the agitator cam kit part number is 285809 and it's around 13 dollars.pop off the center cap of the agitator,remove the 7 1/6 inch screw in the middle and pull off the top of the agitator to get at the dogs,you'll see them there are 4 of them,they waer down and the top of the agitator doesn't work.watch this video.

Whirlpool top loading cloths washer agitator is loose when it should be turning. how do i tighten it?


Sounds like you might have bad agitator dogs. Remove the agitator cap, theres a 5/16th bolt that needs to be removed then the top of agitator comes off. The dogs are 4 little gears with teeth on them, when they get worn the top half of the agitator doesn't move.

The agitar isn;t working right. Is there


The part you need is FSP# 80040 dog kit goes inside the upper agitator. installing them dawgs: You sit the agitator on the floor, put you feet on the base and snatch the top portion off of the bottom. You put all the dogs back in the cam set them up into the upper portion with a piece of pvc pipe or equivilent and invert onto the base, lining up the tabs on the bottom with the holes in the upper portion being careful not to smash the tabs on the base that hold the upper portion onto the agitator. Snap it all into place and gently re-install it being careful not to over tighten the nut. Watch this video:

I can't seem to get the Sears Parts site for your washer model number.

Can you verify that it's correct?

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

In the interim, here is the Whirlpool Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Following is a procedure for removing the agitator(s) on top load washers.

If you take the agitators out, I'd make sure that any "gunk" is cleaned off and check the splines inside the agitator and on the transmission agitator shaft.

It's probably not a serious problem.

My Maytag Ensignia washer is not spinning well. It bangs side to side with even the smallest loads. It seems like something is loose. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need a repair mans help....


Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...

I put a down comforter in my Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine (I have done this at least 50 times). Last time, it got hung up around the agitator and started making a funny sound. The agitator...


Pull the agitator off and check the plastic drive hub at the top of the agitator shaft. It should not be split, or have it's internal splines sheared off. If this all looks ok, then likely transmission problems or a slipping drive belt (motor to transmission). Good luck!

Whirlpool Imperial Washer LA9200XWN1 Does not agitate like it did


HI, this will happen over a long period of operation time. This is repairable and, you will need to purchase an agitator kit from whirlpool or, an aftermarket circuit. installing a new agitator kit will fix this issue.

one or more of the main agitator components have become stripped or, damaged.
