    I have the same problem with my 23832 Kenmore. I've replaced the agitator clutch dogs before on an older machine, but can't figure out how to get any further than removing the agitator cap on this maching.

Should be a plastic insert that you have to turn counter clock wise till you can pull out. Then remove top section of agitator. then with a socket 9/16 deep socket remove the nut. When you remove nut the bolt may come with it thats ok, then you can remove agitator. good luck

I need to replace the dogs but I cant get the dust cover off of the agitator.


Shoot some wd40 or some other spray lubricant around the edge of the dust collector and let it soak for 30 minutes and the you can take a pair of pliers and grab one of the ears closest to the edge and pull up. There is a rubber seal that has dried and gotten stuck. That should removemthe dust cap and allow you to access the 1/2" nut to remove the upper half of the agitator and replace your dogs.

Agator doesn't work


Is this a whirlpool washer? The agitator dogs need to be replaced. Remove top cap on agitator, then plastic cover inside it, then remove bolt, then pull agitator off. Top can separate from bottom by standing on bottom and pulling up on upper. Go to Repairclinic.com to find agitator dogs.

Agitator just clicks when it should be moving. Will not move in wash or spin cycle. Please advise.


Agitator has 4 Teeth - Dog Teeth I Beleve the name is in top part of Agitator. Take softener cap off top of Agitator. There is a plastic cover under softener cap. You need to remove plastic cover then you will see 4 teeth that lock into the agitator replace all 4 teeth make sure you put the teeth back in the same way or it won't work. Old teeth are rounded and won't grab Agitator anymore. Job not hard.

The bottom part of the agitator will turn, but not the top part


The agitator has two parts. One is the bottom agitator and then you have the top agitator that moves the clothes around. If the top part of the agitator is not moving. You probably need to replace the dog ears. Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid. -- click on this link directly to get the detailed instruction for replacing dog ear
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsdesk_id=136
to remove the whole agitator check out the instructions as follows:
(1) Kenmore washer..... Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a bolt and remove the bolt, lift up on the agitator...picture1, picture2.
(2) Kenmore washer.....Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bold will have a square in the middle that the square end of the shaft of an socket extension ( or a very large flat screw driver ) will fit into the square hole to unscrew the plastic nut off...remove the upper 1/2 of the agitator....remove thebolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator. also you can get the exact required parts from www.repairclinic.com
This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Agitator dogs worn


Ok, here is how ya do it. Remove the protective cap on top of the agitator (remove softener dispensor if optioned). Down in the hole you will see a plastic cap with a square fitting built in to it. Take a 1/2 extension and stick it in the hole. Unscrew the entire plastic button, then the spring. You can now remove the top and replace the dogs. A long pair of needle nose pliers can also unscrew that cap if its not to tight.

Top agitator not working properly


Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced. To do this remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.

The top part of my agitator doesn't spin. I see others with the same problem, but can't find where the answer is listed. I can't figure out how to disassemble.


your unit has agitator drive "dogs" that drive the top of the agitator and they do wear out.
take off the fabric softner dispenser or the top cap from the agitator. then look inside the agitator and you will see a plastic cover with pull tabs on it. pull up on that cover and then you will see a bolt that allows you to remove the agitator. once out you can take the top off and get to the drive dogs. cheap to replace, about 5 bucks.
