Aggitator is stripping out

Kenmore Elite top load washer. During the wash cycle when the aggitator is turning, it is making a louder noise than usual and I think that it is stripping out. When I turn the aggitator when the machine is not on, it turns then strips. How hard is this to fix?

It's easy, your agitator dogs are bad. They are little teeth that sit inside the agitator. If you remove the top of the agitator you will see 4 small gizmos that sit inside there. They have teeth that catch the teeth on the agitator and stop it when it agitates. The teeth on the agitator dogs are just worn out. They cost around 7 dollars from your local appliance repair shop and are easy to replace. Just pull out the housing for the dogs and replace them. You buy them in a set of four. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and have a great weekend.

    It should be pretty easy, it's hard to say if I am not standing right there but once you get the top of the agitator taken off you will find that there is a screw with a bolt located inside. Simply loosen the bolt until it comes out and the agitator will come out. You should be able to get the agitator dogs out from that point. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck.

My top loading frigidaire washing machine barrel spins during wash cycle and the aggitator is going as well how do i fix it


Hello fire_rod - From what you have described it sounds like either the transmission is failing or the trunnion, which secures the tub to the transmission shaft has broken. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Will not agitate 110 92587210 Kenmore Washer


I have 2 words for you: "dog ears".

the dog aggitation ears are what cause the aggitator to aggitate. Those things wear down and not grab after time.

Pretty easy to change out. You just need to pull the aggitator out and change the 4 little plastic ears. Good luck :)

My Kenmore model 80 washer won't aggitate but spins and drains without issue. The aggitator tries to move but acts like there is a gear stripped or something.


you will need to purchase an agitator replacement kit for your washer and, the clutch will need to be replaced as well. these components are damaged and, replacing them will restore your units agitation functions.

Water drains during spin cycle, but tub does not spin and appears to have dropped down. Machine does aggitate.


If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.

AGGITATOR WILL NOT TURN AND WASHING MACHINE WILL NOT SPIN


Hi. you will need to replace the clutch assembly and the drive shaft gears as well. these components allow the agitator to agitate during the wash cycle and if they are stripped or locked, due to a mechanism failure, it will not do its job correctly.

Please rate and god bless:)

Kenmore series 70 washer won't stop agitating when lid Is lifted.


I have a Series 80 and when I lift the lid it does not stop aggitating when in wash mode. When I lift the lid it does stop spinning when in rinse mode. As designed.

To stop wash-mode aggitation at lid-lift, using the existing lid switch and other electrical components, is not easy and not recommended. I can think of a way to do it (triple-pole lid switch) but I will not detail the idea .. for safety concerns.

To stop aggitation, simply use the main settings dial control. You'll save money and possibly prevent a fire hazard!

Aggitator won't work and won't spin/ drains ok


Coupling is bad.
There is a coupling between the motor and the transmission. When this part breaks then it will pump the water out but won't spin or aggitate.

Washine mashine aggitator


Rob, sounds like you need an agitator repair kit. Not a hard job, under the dispenser cap you have a set of ears, spring and plastic bearing. The kit is cheap, you can find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp Catriver...post back
