Agitator won't work


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3965207-whirlpool_top_loader_no_spin_problem


Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I have included parts sources and instructions on how to replace each part as well.

If this just a simple matter of the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. All these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Auger in top load washer don't turn when in washing cycle but does spin in spinning cycle


This sounds like a problem with the agitator. Or the drive for the agitator. If you can hear the motor running but do not have any agitation then something in the agitator may be stripped. If not then you may have a timer or electrical problem. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

The agitator is not moving as well as it should. It turns very little. Should it not be agitating aggressively?


You have (agitating dogs) in the bottom of your washing machine. These little plastic pieces tend to wear out over time or from overloading. These can be replaced, cost about $5 for for 4 of these (dogs). Take the very top piece of the agitator off, it spins off. There's a bolt in the bottom of the agitator that will have to be removed. After it's removed, you can pull the agitator out. You will see the little (dogs). It's a very simple task, and takes about 10 min to do this. Look up (picture of agitator dogs) this will give you a better view at what you are looking at.

The agitator sounds like it is grinding and shacky. It is not agitating properly


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured top loader (e.g., Kenmore, Estate, Roper and some later model Maytags), the problem is either a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

Top agetator is not working what do i look for


well if the model number thats attached to this call is even close theres still 20 sub-models from ther. anyways your agitator sits upon a plastic drive bell, you can remove the agitator by pulling up sharply upon the agitator (sometimes a belt looped under the agitator provides a better grasping surface), then you can see and touch the drive bell, which is held in place by a 7/16th bolt.. that drive bell is indexed to the transmission drive shaft by splines that sometimes/often wear out allowing the agitator to spin sorta freely..
give that a shot and let me know..
have fun, and good luck,

Problem for Whirlpool LXR9445JT Top Load Washer Whirlpool top-loader LSQ9200LQ0 The top half og the agitator is not turning.


Whirlpool has a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs or the agitator cam assembly. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs. For the model number you have listed, the part number for the kit is 285811 and sells for about $11.

NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the plastic, or restrict the agitator movement. Tighten until snug only.

Top load Whirlpool washing machine


Many Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washers use a 2 piece agitator. There are cogs called 'dogs' or 'dog ears' and a cam between the two halves of the agitator which can wear leading to a clicking/ticking sound and reduced movement of the top agitator section during the wash cycle leading to poor cleaning results. In most cases these worn parts can be replaced without much cost or difficulty. If you have this style of washer this should help.
