I have had to replace the agitator gear just inside the agitator, mine did the same thing, I took the agitator apart, removed the plastic gear, the gear has a number on it, you can call sears service dept with the number, also a good idea is to have the model and serial number of the washer, the part was really inexpensive as well, my washer has been working great now for over a year since I replaced mine, if you don't want to get into it like I did, sears also offers service, but I would try to call and get the price on the part first before calling in a service tech, thanks again for your Question, hope that provided you the solution, please rate this for us,

My washing machine center pole does not rotate properly


have you taken out the agitator to see if the splines in the top are maybe stripped and not allowing it to get a good grip on the top of the transmission (or center pole as you called it)?

Washer is not rotating fully during wash cycle


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:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

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

Some Kenmore washers have a two piece agitator. The lower section will rotate back and forth both ways.

The top section has "agitate Dogs" that allow it to rotate only one way (to keep the clothes moving downward.

If yours has a two piece agitator there shouldn't be a problem.

Brand new agitator does not rotate. I realized that I did not buy a new "seal-cap" that goes between the agitator and the cap. Would the missing cap cause the agitator to fail to rotate? GE spacesaver...


by 'rotate' do you mean that it will not turn at all or that it turns in both directions and does not 'rachet', turning in one direction only and agitating the clothes? If it rotates freely in both directions, it's probably your agitator dogs not engaging either due to improper assembly or breakage.

Agitator on my washing machine is not rotating the way it should. It seems something is not catching and the piece is only rotating part of the time.....please help. ps How do I remove the agitator to see...


Remove the cap off the top of the agitator. Then remove the 7/16 bolt below. Your problem is inside the top part of the agitator. YOu need to buy an agitator dog kit. When the part is removed you will see how to put it in.

Kenmore series 90 washer agitator not working. Replaced lit switch, checked motor coupling. Worked for a while, then started acting up again. Motor is running. Sounds like a chain is being dragged across...


you could have a problem with the transmission/gear box.

it is the main mechanical device that is being driven by the motor to convert the rotating motor to the agitating action of the agitator.

you may need to replace the whole gear box.


tnx 4 using fixya,

Agitator problems


sounds as if the transmission agitator pawl is slipping. inside the transmission is a gear connected to the agitator. there is a spring loaded pawl that rotates around the center and engages its pawl or hook into the agitator gear for each rotation. either the pawl hook is worn or the agitator gear is rounded off. the transmission must be opened up to see what is a miss
