Question about Hoover Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hoover top load washing machine, need to remove transmission

I have dismantled the machine, the only bolts I havn`t removed are the 2 bolts in the clamp inside the drum, if so then I will have to take great care as these 2 bolts are seized. I am removing the trans as the machine is making a lot of squeeking noises on all cycles. It must be the trans or bearings, if I can fix it myself it will be worth fixing, if I have to pay to have it fixed then I shall buy a new one as the differance is $100.

How do I remove the agitator from my Hoover 201M washing machine. It really needs to be cleaned under there with all the muck thats building up. Thanks.


if it is a top loader machine with an agitator that stands up in the center of the tub, try removing the dispenser and lint trap from the center ( normally just a pull up) and right down the bottom there is a 10 or 12 mm bolt that you undo and that allows you to pull the agitator up off the drive shaft
talk with a service agent as to how to get the agitator out or down load a workshop manual from google by typing in --workshop manual for hoover model 201m washing machine -- and if there is a pdf version then down load it

NEED TO REMOVE AN AGITATOR FROM A WASHING MACHINE


  • 1 First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have.

  • 2 To remove agitator on a whirlpool washer, remove top cap from agitator, Next you will find a translucent cap, remove this with your pliers. Then you will see a 3/8 inch nut, Back this nut out and you can then remove the agitator. Be Careful though, inside the agitator where the bolt has been removed is a white piece of plastic that holds the "dog ears". These dog ears are what lets the agitator move in one direction and locks when the transmission moves back in the other direction.

    Maytag and Admiral washers are very similar to remove. General Electric, (GE) is different, To remove a GE agitator simply pull upwards very hard, GE agitators snap on. Be careful not to pop it into your mouth, that really hurts.

  • 3 Remove agitator, repair or replace and reset, GE just push on, you will be able to see the groves to line up the agitator to the hub. For whirlpool place bolt into dog ear guide, and set down on top of transmission post and tighten, be careful that dog ears, do not get out of alignment. That's it.

    Buy F150 parts.

    Kenmore 110.26492502 top load washing machine is leaking oil (yellowish with black). any chance, as a DIY-er,i can solve this? its turning 5 years old already... thanks! rex


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

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

    The model number you provided doesn't appear on the Sears site. Are you sure it's the right number??

    Enter your model number (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    Pulling the cabinet, pump, motor and gearcase are relatively easy. Getting the 8 bolts off of the gearcase and removing the top can get a bit messy as the gearcase holds 15 Oz. of gear oil. (Easily replaced with non-detergent gear oil from a local auto parts shop.

    This is a Whirlpool / kenmore Serviced Manual PDF for top load, direct drive washers:

    https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


    It also has a troubleshooting guide.


    See the Following Whirlpool parts list for alternatives to the Sears part numbers.

    http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf


    In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators. The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt (a 1/2" socket extension works well).

    You don't have to remove the drum. See the following:

    http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

    Lay the machine down (after disconnectYing power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside.

    Remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission.

    Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft), and remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 15Oz of 80-90 weight gear oil.

    You should be able to either re-seat the cover or make a thin gasket using automotive "liquid gasket seal" products.

    And the Whirlpool Parts list for these washers:

    http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

    It sounds as if the Gearcase Cover Seal may be worn and is allowing transmission oil to work it's way up the main agitator shaft.

    I'd pull the motor and transmission to check for leaking and probably check all of the seals on the gearcase and drive tube.

    (IT SOUNDS LIKE A REAL PAIN BUT ISN'T.) THE PARTS TO REPAIR ANY SEALS ARE INEXPENSIVE.:

    For example, the above part number 3349985 is $9.09 at Sears and is a basic Whirlpool part.

    See the following for how to release the console and cabinet and how to pull the pump, motor, gearcase and drive tube.

    In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators. The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt (a 1/2" socket extension works well).

    You don't have to remove the drum.

    Overall, its a lot less expensive to replace a couple of seals than to replace a $170 gearcase.

    My washing machine spins but does not aggitate what do i need to do?


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    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.

    Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and operations manual for top load direct drive washers.

    https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

    Also look at the Whirlpool parts list for top load direct drive commercial washers (the consumer model is basically the same.)

    http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf


    The Whirlpool / Kenmore top load direct drive washer uses an agitate shaft from the transmission with splines on its' top that fit into slots in the agitator. If the slots in the agitator are damaged / worn, the washer may not agitate.

    Remove the fabric softener dispenser, remove the top agitator cap (a short screwdriver works well), and you'll see a 1/2" square drive bolt. Use a 1/2" socket extension to remove the bolt, pull up on the top agitator and carefully turn it over. You should see four plastic "dogs" that allow the top agitator to turn one way only. If they are worn, they are easily replaced.

    After removing the top agitator, you should see a bolt (I think it's 5/8").

    Carefully remove the bolt and the rubber washer under it and the main agitator should come off. You'll see the top of the transmission agitator shaft with it's splines. Check them and the slots inside the main agitator.

    If the splines on the transmission agitator and main agitator are OK, the washer spins and drains and the timer moves through its' cycle, the problem points to an agitate gear in the transmission itself.

    See the parts PDF for the transmission.

    Replacing the gear in the transmission is a bit complicated (and messy) but it's a lot less expensive than a $170 transmission.

    If you decide that you want to work on the transmission (it's not really that hard) post another question on Fixya and I or someone else should be able to walk you through it.

    How do I remove the agitator in a Hoover 500MD machine?


    Most Hoovers have a 10mm bolt down inside the agitator. Remove the fabric softener dispenser from the top of the agitator, and look down the centre of agitator. You need a long extension socket to undo the bolt (anticlockwise). Be careful not to turn bolt too hard- sometimes the bolt is seized where it goes into top of gearbox, and if you turn bolt too hard, you can break the bolt. Once bolt is removed, agitator just pulls straight out

    Object caught beneath the adigator


    Remove the fabric softener by pulling and pushing to one side.
    Once removed, there will be a half inch bolt that holds the agitator to the transmission shaft. Loosen the bolt and the agitator will lift off.
    Older Hoovers have a set screw near the middle of the agitator.

    If you need further assistance, let me know

    Belt Removal and Replacement


    No.  The motor and pump assembly need to come off.
       There is 4 1/2 inch bolts that hold this assembly to the main mechanism.  2 on top and 2 on bottom.  Work belt off bottom pulley on transmission and then remove these bolts.  Turn motor over and remove 3 torx screws holding pump to motor.  Install new belt then reinstall pump with 3 screws.  Reinstall assemblt to mech.  Pu top 2 screws in first then bottom 2.  Be sure belt goes on left side of black plastic idler pulley.  Work belt around transmission pulley.  You can press on opposite end of idler pulley arm to loosen belt tension.  Make sure belt is on all pulleys before testing.
