Washer not agitating, fills, spins and drains but wont agitate. grease at bottom of shaft above belt puley

Check the splines on the drum. Take the cap off and remove the lock for the nut, take the nut off and you can pull the whole agitator out of the drum. Look at the splines on the shaft and in the agitator. Make sure they are not worn down to nothing.

I have a kenmore washer machine 23832-100 that has stopped working. I would like to know how to remove the agitator so that i can examine the machine

I had the same problem. Well, washer worked, but quit agitating. If that is your problem, then there are a couple of possible ways to remove the agitator. On one model, the cap on top could be removed by unlocking tabs with a screwdriver, then a bolt unscrewed it to free it from the shaft. In another model, the agitator simply had to be pried (and pried, and pried) off. Turned out in both cases that the inside of the agitator was worn badly enough to let the shaft spin free if under any kind of load. Both times, I was able to go to a local appliance repair shop and used appliance dealer and get a new agitator for around $10.
Hope this helps you out!!

Ge whdsr315 top load washer will spin but not agitate unless pushing down on agitator

Sounds like the nut that holds the agitator on to the shaft is not tightend down or the agitator is not fully "locked" into place on the shaft.

Maytag top load clothes washer tub spins hard

Hi, You can unsnap the plastic splash ring and see if something is between the tubs. The inner tub turns rather hard anyways. The agitator might have a 1/4" screws in the side of it to hold it onto the shaft of the transmission. If not, just pull the agitator up real hard.
Under the agitator is a spanner nut that holds the inner tub in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Agitator free spins

Remove the top cap on the agitator and see if the bolt has come loose. If it is not there, the agitator will come loose from the gear case shaft and free spin.

Complete loss of boost

Yup your turbo is toast, ive had the same thing happen on a nissan skyline. The smoke you describe is the oil escaping from the turbo core and burning off in the dump pipe.Even though you managed to get the nut back on the compressor wheel the damage to your exhaust wheel, bearings and shaft is already done, chances are you'l be missing a few fins in the exhaust wheel to say the least, it would've propelled itself in the exhuast housing probably spinning at atleast 25,000 rpm.The turbo in the gt4 is a stong unit, just how much boost were you running? :)

Spin cycle...

Sounds like the spin tub mounting block is stripped to me. Remove agitator. Remove spanner nut holding spin tub to basket drive. The block is the aluminum piece joining the basket drive shaft. The aluminum block has two square indentions that sit down on two tabs formed on the basket drive shaft. The soft metal wears out on the block and the drive shaft isnt attached to the spin tub anymore. An easy way to test is remove agitator and put in spin. See if shaft spins but not tub spin.Let me know what you find
