Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Model # 110.29852991

I took your advice the other day. Replaced the coupler, it was broken. I didn't realize that the washer wasn't agitating either. It does drain and now it spins. Is there another simple fix for the other problem?

Follow these simple instructions:
Remove the agitator from the washer.
Sit the agitator on the floor.
Grab the top part and hold down the base with your feet.
Yank the 2 sections apart. Get dog kit #80040
Replace new dogs in cam and snap the 2 units back together without breaking the positioning tabs on the bottom portion.
Ease the agitator back into the washer being careful not to seperate the two parts while pushing down onto the tranny spline. Do not overtighten that bolt with the fancy washer in it.
That is all Jim. Should your mission fail be advised that all knowledge of your mission will be disavowed, good luck Jim. This message will self destruct in 2 more beers.

The agitation does not work like it should!

I suspect u have bad agitator dogs

check THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR, AS THEY WILL HINDER THE AGITATION PROCESS. However in G.E models the cam dogs are replaced with what is called an agitator coupler. (located at bottom of tub)
Remember to check the agitator spline as well. for worn broken teeth

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

The washing machine wont agitate?

There are many possibilities for this problem. you will have to check all of them one by one mentioned as follows :--- There is a lid switch in the washer. The washing machine will not start spinning till the lid is closed. In some cases it has been seen that lid is closed still the washer does not agitating. in this cases the lid switch has to be checked. if the lid switch is faulty then the closed lid will not be detected by the washing machine, and it will not start agitate cycle.
But if the lid switch is ok checked, then other possibility can be fault in the motor coupler. Many a times the motor coupler is broken .The motor coupler is plastic/rubber kind of material fitted on the shaft of the motor .Check properly if the motor coupler seems cracked, worn out loose or broken then it needs to be replaced to solve the issue. But if motor coupler is checked ok then other possibility for this problem is the spinning belt. If the belt is worn out or loose or cracked/broken then it needs to replace.
Only for GE washers. In GE model washers, there is a clutch used for proper spin speed. If the clutch wears out, it has to be replaced.But if clutch/belt seems ok. then other possibility is driver motor itself .check if the motor has power if not then the motor is got internally burnt .in this case the drive motor needs to be replaced. but if drive motor is functioning properly then other possibility to be checked for this fault is the transmission shifter and pulley. If the transmission shifter becomes defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. Replacing the shifter is bit time consuming and tough job. you will require proper tools to deal with this problem.. But if the transmission shifter is properly working then other possibility to check is the Agitator itself.If the transmission is moving properly but the Agitator is getting stuck and not moving properly then its the fault in the agitator assembly that has to be replaced to solve the problem. This will help.Thanks.

We just replaced the drive motor coupling in our kenmore washer model # 22922100, because it would not agitate or spin. Now the bottom agitator will work but the top one will not.

If you had a broken drive coupler and replaced it I would probably say that the problem is in the transmission.
Generally the coupler only breaks when you have severally overloaded the machine or a catastrophic gear failure has occur. You can remove the transmission and open the case however I suggest that you just have the transmission replaced.

My washer did not spin agitate or pump. When I

you could have 2 problems,, first one- the motor bearings could be locked up-or the motor could be burnt--if so you would smell it-- could have something logded in side the pump fan--the older models you can take apart & dislodge the item--the newer ones have to replace the whole pump..

I need to fix the agitator on my washing machine as i it not swirling the washing during the cycle

The agitator dogs are worn and needs replacement if the motor runs and the bottom part of the agitator agitates but the top part of the agitator does not. The motor coupler or drive belt is broken if the washer fills and the motor runs but no agitation at all. The lid switch is faulty if the motor does not run at all. Please let us know which among the cases stated above the washer is in and indicate the make and exact model number for specific and accurate troubleshooting and repair advice and for the exact replacement part numbers.

Kenmore top load washer wont spin/agitate.I replaced the coupler

This is either a coupler kit needing to be replaced or a transmission. You will see the broken coupler before you remove the transmission.

I have an older model Kenmore washer - stopped spinning and aggitating - I took the control panel off, how do I reach the belt?

Your problem may not be a belt some Whirlpool built Kenmore washers are direct drive and have a coupler instead of a belt. The coupler is located on top of the motor. It consists of three parts two with prongs and one with holes for each of the prongs. If this is broken or badly worn the washer will not agitate or spin. Good luck. Oh the drive coupler part number is 285753A.
