Top portion agitator not working - Kenmore 110.27812692


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:


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.27812692

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.

Also see the following illustrated description of the above.

Upper portion of Whirlpool agitator not turning


Your agitator dogs are worn out. Remove the agitator and seperate the upper section from the lower section. There are 4 small teardrop shaped pieces that are the agitator dogs. They have either come apart over time or at least the teeth have worn off them.
Post back with any questions. Please verify the model number. I couldn't pull up a parts list for it. I know the last digit should be a 0 (zero) instead of an o.
Thanks/Mike

The upper portion of the agitator (Kenmore Series 80 top load)stopped spinning as if the thread has stripped. What parts need to be replaced?

Basic top load, direct drive Whirlpool / Kenmore washers with two piece agitators use "agitator dogs" to allow the top section of the agitator to turn in one direction only.

These are plastic pieces and over time can wear.

See the following for how to replace them.

The top section of a two part agitator is designed to turn only one way. If the "agitator dogs" in it are worn, it wont agitate either way.

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

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.

The Top portion of the Agitator won't spin.


This is a very simple fix, that's inexpensive and requires no special tools. It sounds like you need to replace your agitator dogs. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The dogs are part of the agitator cam assembly under the auger (top portion). These little plastic pieces do wear out with age, causing the slippage you are talking about. Replacements are available at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. For a little bit more, you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit (which includes the dogs, cam and seals) for around $11 or $12. Use your model number to begin your search criteria and locate these parts under the "Agitator Parts" section.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
