Agitator won't move


Thes units have litlle plastic dogs that make the agitator agitate, and when they break it will stop.
Remove the agitator and inside there are 3 to 4 plastic dogs or ears and these are more than likely bad.
Pry the agitator cap off by inserting a screwdriver into the cap's notch

2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off - many Whirlpool machines use this inner cap, with a handle, to gain access to the center bolt

3) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator (earlier models used a 7/16" hex-head steel bolt)
On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire assembly out of the washer. (Some recent models allow just the top portion's removal to access these 'dogs')

5) Older models - place the agitator on the floor, and, standing carefully on the bottom portion, pull the top half off. Turn it over, and the dogs will be accessible for replacement.

6) Newer model dogs can be replaced once just the ratchet ***'y is removed. There are several versions currently in use, but most can be replaced without removing the bottom agitator half. All '4-dog' versions use the 285770 (or #80040) kit, regardless of the cam ***'y style. (Really old agitators, rarely seen now, used a pair of 2 larger dogs, which are a different part number)

7) On older versions, be careful to align the two tabs when inserting the upper ***'y back onto the agitator bottom half. When these are aligned, they will friction-fit the two halves together, making it easier to reinstall the ***'y. Handle it only by the bottom half to prevent pulling the top half off when reinstalling.

8) Lightly lubricate the agitator cap's rubber gasket using a bit of dishwasher detergent, and push it back into place. (On the Whirlpools with an inner cap, lube that cap's o-ring too - makes it easier to snap into place)dcramer531_112.jpg

Remove the fabric softener on top of agitator and plastic insert. Use socket wrench to remove hex bolt and lift top half and then bottom half of agitator which should then expose chain.

Anyway to remove agitaror to get stuck piece of fabric without tearing apart entire machine? Kenmore top loading washer


This is a simple procedure. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the center post cap or fabric softener dispenser (if equipped) from the agitator by gently prying it off.

2. Under the center post cap locate the air gap plastic cap (if equipped) and remove.

3. Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16” hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8” to ½” ratchet adapter to remove.

4. Remove the upper portion of the agitator (called the "auger") by lifting straght up.

5. Remove the lower portion of the agititator by grasping the lower flanges near the bottom of the wash tub and pulling straight up.

This will expose the transmission shaft and anything that may be lodged under the agitator.

Reassemble in the reverse order of the instructions I provided. NOTE: Make sure you only tighten the agitator bolt until it is snug. Do not overtighten as this can break the agitator or restrict its movement.

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

Top of agitator not agitating


Hello,

This is a problem with the parts that we called dog agitator. They are 4 pcs plastic parts that function as a lock on a ratchet handle drive.

the top agitator would turn one way and these dog agitators prevents it from going the other way.

To replace it, you have to remove the top softener dispenser, remove another plastic cover that covers the bolt from water. remove the bolt and you can pull the whole agitator out of the tub.
Be careful on dismantling, it is tricky to put it back. Remember where every part goes.

Tnx for using Fixya,

Necklace caught under the agitator


In the center of the sgitator, there is a bolt.
Sometimes there is a plug to remove by prying out.
Remove this bolt.... or just loosen it, and the necklace will come free.
See item 2 in the expanded view on the left side.

Hold the bottom part of the Agitator,(The part that you are talking about),Undo the very top part in an anti-clockwise direction and it will come right off.Use a wrench to remove the nut on the top of the agitator and then lift it right out,you may need to move it from right to left.You will now be able to remove the necklace.Replace the Agitator the reverse of removal.
