Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have a Whirlpool Model la9100xtw0 Washer. The bottom of the agitator works but the top does not. I have read on your website that this is a common problem. I have taken the agitator out of the nachine and split into top and bottoms halves. How do I change the "agitator dogs"? Do I need special tools? What part number(s) do I need to buy from your website? The machine is 15 years old but, up until now, has NEVER given me a problem. Thanks for your help.

Agitator not working


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, a no agitation problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem yourself and repair:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3965207-whirlpool_top_loader_no_spin_problem


If the washer IS running, but the agitator is slipping, then you may have worn agitator dogs, or a loose agitator bolt. The following link explains what the dogs are, and how to access to acces the bolt and replace them:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. Most of these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.


Read through the information provided. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Problem for Whirlpool LXR9445JT Top Load Washer Whirlpool top-loader LSQ9200LQ0 The top half og the agitator is not turning.


Whirlpool has a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs or the agitator cam assembly. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs. For the model number you have listed, the part number for the kit is 285811 and sells for about $11.

NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the plastic, or restrict the agitator movement. Tighten until snug only.

Agitator top is not engaged to the bottom part


This problem is generally caused by worn agitator dogs which are part of the agitator cam under the top portion. The dogs act as a clutch to drive the upper portion of the agitator. The do wear out with age and require periodic replacement. The following link explains:

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

This is a very simple problem that can easily be repaired by the average do-it-yourselfer for very little money. Replacement parts can be purchased on line at searpspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading for item number 10. For a little more, the entire cam replacement kit (which includes the dogs) can be purchased as item number 9. If you do not wish to purchase on line, take the part numbers listed on the website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These parts are commonly part of their in store inventory.

Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.
