The bolt unscrews counterclockwise. Hold the agitator by the bottom vanes. If it won',t budge try tightening it first, just a little to break it free.

SOURCE: Whirlpool top Loading washing machine won't spin on spin cycle

If the washer won't finish a spin cycle, it probably means that your timer went bad or stalled. You can take the control panel off and look at the contacts for scorching or corrosion.

SOURCE: removing agitator

Sometimes small articles of clothing can manage to get between the inner spin basket and outer wash tub. This is NOT common, however. If this were the case the memory stick you mentioned, would end up lodged in the drain pump. There would be a noticeable noise from the impeller hitting it and it may cause the pump to fail, resulting in drainage problems. More than likely, its right where you suspect it is. To remove the agitator, do the following:

1. Remove the center cap or dispenser from the agitator.
2. Under the cap or dispenser is another plastic cap with a pull handle on it. Lift this cap out by pulling straight up, exposing the agitator mounting bolt.
3. Loosen the agitator bolt using a socket and ratchet. Once removed, grasp the entire agitator assembly by the bottom flanges and lift straight up. The entire agitator should come out.

NOTE: When reinstalling the agitator make sure you DO NOT overtighten the mounting bolt or it can cause damage to the agitator and restrict the movement. Good and "snug" is the rule of thumb.

Searspartsdirect.com has an excellent exploded view diagram of your agitator and components if you need a good reference. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading.

I hope you find what you're looking for and hope this helps you in some way. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

SOURCE: Clothes come out extremly wrinkled on top loding whirlpool washer

This is normal. You can try a lower spin setting or smaller loads. The wrinkles will come out in your dryer.

Does the Whirlpool, top loading lsr6332kq1 have a lint filter?


I will suggest you steps to check whether your washing machine has a lint filter. Follow the instructions below.
1)Turn off the washing machine and open the lid or door if you have a front-loading appliance.
2)Place your hand on the upper lip of a front-loading or top-loading washer tub and feel around the circumference for a flat tab. Pull out this tab, which is the handle for the lint filter. If you cannot find a tab on a top-loading washer, continue troubleshooting.

3)Unscrew the cap on the top of the agitator in a top-loading washer. The agitator is the center cone inside the appliance.

4)Pull the lint filter out of the agitator and rinse under cold, running water to clean.
5)Slide the filter into position as far as it will go. Replace the agitator cap if your appliance uses a lint filter in the agitator.

Washer leaves trash on clothes when finished. has been doing this for some time now. some of the particles resemble dried tree leaves.


It sounds as if there is a soap buildup in possibly a couple of places and it is coming loose then ending up on your clothing. If you changed brands of soap this can happen also. The soap buildup can be under and inside the agitator. It can manifest itself in large calcium type flakes in the washer when it finally breaks down and you see it. You can remove the agitator by opeing the top of your agitator and removing the retaining biolt then lifting out the agitator. Use a putty knife and scrape off the inside of the wash tub under the agitator. Also take the agitator either outside or to the bathtub depending on weather and scrub it clean on the bottom and on the inside of the agitator. If after all of this you still have that same material show up you may have to remove the wash tub itself and clean the outer tub with a putty knife. There is a special tool that locks into the 4 slots of the tub nut used to remove the tub nut. You can buy it at most appliance part centers. Tell them you need a tub nut removal tool for a kenmore / whirlpool top loading machine and they will walk back and get you one straight away. Good luck andI I hope this resolves your problem.

Kenmore 80 Series washer leaves brown grease marks


Remove the agitator and check the shaft seal underneath the plastic drive block at the top of the shaft. Move the shaft in different directions to check the condition of the top bearing. If none or very slight, replace the seal at the top of the shaft supporting post. Clean any grease that is outside of the seal when you are done. Be sure to not damage the seal surface on the shaft when removing/replacing the seal and pre-grease the new seal's inner lip before installing.

Anklet is lost in the washer help


Not sure of this model, but on 'most' top load washers the top piece of the agitator will unscrew, pull the agitator up, anklet should be under it if is too big to fit through the holes in the tub. If it isnt there, look for the screen in front of the water pump. Which means either pulling up the top, or removing the back. Good luck
