Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Machine will not agitate

I have a Kenmore elite top load washer. I can not find any model number for this machine. Anyway the machine works it does everything but agitate. I should not say it does not agitate because it does move slightly. It does not make any noises it shouldn't. I would like to know if it is worth fixing and if so can I fix it. Can anybody tell me how to fix it. Thanks.

Re: Machine will not agitate

Most likely it's either a broken belt, or the motor is going out. to check it you need to take the outside casing off, not sure exactly how to do that on that model. Anyway open it up, check under the drum for a belt, if the belt is in tact than it's the motor, in which case. Personally I wouldn't put in the effor to replace. as to where you can get a belt if it is broken, I don't know that either. Good Luck

Kenmore Elite 22982 Squeaks during agitation

I'm pretty sure what you are hearing is the outer tub sliding on the bottom frame. There are three tub wear pads located around the top of the frame between the tub and the frame. Click on this these are the parts that I think you will need. You can click on the parts select home at the top right of the page and it will take you to their home page. There you can enter your complete model number and it will bring up diagrams of your machine . Once you find these part the diagrams willshow you where these parts go. Good luck.

Kenmore washing machine Model 110.4767292, squeaky agitator

I can't seem to get the Sears Parts site for your washer model number.

Can you verify that it's correct?

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

In the interim, here is the Whirlpool Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.$FILE/L-55.pdf

Following is a procedure for removing the agitator(s) on top load washers.

If you take the agitators out, I'd make sure that any "gunk" is cleaned off and check the splines inside the agitator and on the transmission agitator shaft.

It's probably not a serious problem.

I have a kenmore elite model # 20949 and the bottom of the agitator turns but not the top

If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

See the part "Dog, agitator "

Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with

a 1/2" square drive.

Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one

direction only.

Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

Very Noisy Operation

you will have to access the bottom of the agitator from the back of the machine. Either you have loose bolts or else you agitator bearings are shot

Pull the fabric softener cap off, next pull the top cap off the agitator. Then remove the 7/16 bolt in the center of the agitator. Then you can remove the top part of the agitator.
