Hi!

This is due to faulty dogs and cam which are inside the agitator and to access them you need to open the agitator cover and remove the agitator cap and replace it.

    Agigitator dogs wear out and will cause the agitator to either move in one direction or agitator action will be very weak or it will not move at all. So they need to be replaced.



    To access the agitator dogs remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a bolt and remove the bolt, lift up on the agitator.






    Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bolt will have a square in the middle that the square end of the shaft of an socket extension ( or a very large flat screw driver ) will fit into the square hole to unscrew the plastic nut off.








    Remove the upper 1/2 of the agitator....remove the bolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator.








    Now you will be able to access the cam and the dog and now replace the dogs. You can buy the dogs from this link---

    Please ask for further clarifications.

It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

    If the agitator does not turn, you need to check the agitator, if the agitator is worn, replace it.
    If the agitator is fine, check belt and motor coupler or motor control unit, in rare occasion, if the rest ids fine , the problem can also be the control assembly.

    Usually you need to replace the agitator, or you have a motor related problem.

Why agitator not trning in kenmore washing machine?


If the spin cycle works, but the unit only fails to aggitate......the problem is most likely a clutch or transmission problem. If the unit neither spins or aggitates, you could have a broken belt or even a defective lid switch. Sometimes a model will have broken dogs, or cogs in the aggitator base. To check this, with the machine off..reach into the machine tub..grab the aggitaror and try to turn it manually by hand. If you can turn it and also feel a sensation such as a gear slipping or teeth not properly taking hold or meshing, the cogs or dogs may need to be replaced that are under the aggitator itself. Best Wishes

Sounds like a cycle switch problem. The switch is not turning and making contact with the next cycle. It needs to be changed!

I cant lift trhe bottom aggitate plate in my hmwm8000 i have removed the cap and phillips head screw how tov lift the plate?


there should be a bolt holding aggitator on spines,if not try grabbing aggitator and pulling up while rocking aggitator back and forth it will require a great amount of force to remove aggitator fron splined shaft,also so penatrating spray may help sprayed on splined shaft.It also may need to be cleaned around splined shaft to clean built up soap build up. also a haet gun or a hair dryer on high heat on top of aggitator shaft when trying to remove may help!

I have one and they are right. Both the drum and the agitator turn so that the clothes are not beaten up.
Also the electronic motor control is fully variable speed. It will go as slow as! Dial up for wollens and it almost massages them. The cycle time is 1/3rd of a front loader.

The aggitator (sp?) isn't turning...the rest seems to be working (spin & fill). How do I fix it and is it worth fixing? Model LBT6133A Whirlpool Washer


Go under the aggitator inside the tub and pull out the aggitator it self and check out see if the teeth are strip,If the teeth are strip on the aggitator replace it. If is on the other side then it's not worth repairing. All you need to do is just pull on the aggitor from the bottom.

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
