    Thanks! I did call Sears, and they were able to not only show me how to download the manual, but also handled my Fabric Softener Dispenser problem...seems they have a part that attaches where the cap on my agitator is , and they are mailing it out to me. The part and the Shipping and handling total around $15.

I just bought this washer and dont know where to put the soap and softener


If the model number is correct, the detergent and fabric softener go in the dispenser drawer on the left hand side of the operator console. Detergent goes in the LEFT FRONT compartment and softener goes in the RIGHT FRONT compartment. A full explanation of the dispener compartments is included on about page 13 of the owner's manual. If you do not have an owner's manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just type in your MODEL NUMBER under their "Manuals" link and your manual is available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Does the fabric softener dispensar come apart?


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.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=7914776481dcf14414831964a8792e18

Depending on the model, your fabric softener may have a ring around its bottom. Push down or pull up the ring and the dispenser should pull straight up. It doesn't twist off.

Also see the following Sears site. It may have an on-line manual for your machine.

Dual action kenmore 70 series washer need to remove agitator


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.


It sounds as if your "Agitator Dogs" are damaged or broken. These are plastic pieces that allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

Please see the following for how to access and replace them if necessary.


http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=39649e541343127154c647348d1156d9

Basically,

1. Remove the fabric softener dispenser.

2. Using a short flat blade screwdriver, remove the cap.

3. You may see a 1/2" square plastic nut.

I've used a 1/2" extension for a socket set to remove the nut.

4. Pull the top agitator off and turn it over carefully.

You should see the agitator dogs (per the illustrations).

Replace them if necessary and re-mount the agitator, tighten the bolt carefully, put the cap and fabric softener dispenser back on and the top part of the agitator should only turn one way.

WHERE DO I PUT FABRIC SOFTNER


Hi, If there isn't a softener container in the top of the agitator, you can get a softener ball from your local grocery store. Just put the softener in before you wash and it will open to release the softener during the spin cycle. It works great. I use it all the time.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further

What is the date of manufacturing based on the serial number of my Kenmore 70 series washer?


Tyler,
It came off of the Clyde, OH production line the 26'th week of 2001.

Amazing, ain't it? Seriously... the info is embedded in the serial number. Here's the link to the code sheet.

I need help also.


The model number should be located around the tub opening somewhere. The part you are describing sounds like the lid strike and/or lid switch. If you can doublecheck and provide me with a model number, I can locate the parts for you. If you wish to repair this yourself I have step-by-step instructions at the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

The lid switch usually costs about $25, while the lid strike costs about $10. A repair of about $35 may change your mind about buying a new one. I hope this helps you. Post back if you have further questions, or need more assistance.
