Tearing and twisting clothes

Possible that the agitator or the bearings are worn out and so there is a gap in the play of the agitator allowing the clothes to get entangled within the agitator and causing the damage.

How to take agitator off

If the model number is correct, the agitator is removed by following these steps:

1. Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry up on the agitator center post cap and remove.

2. Under the agitator center post cap is a 7/16" hex bolt. Using a rachet and socket, remove the bolt and washer.

3. With the bolt removed, grasp the agitator on each side of the bottom flange at the bottom of the wash tub and lift straight up.

NOTE: Detergent can often leave soap deposits under the agitator and make it diffult to remove. You may have to rock the agitator from side to side a little to break it free.

If this is NOT your model number, please post back with your correct information. if you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi just read your posting.Now do you still require help?If you do then pull the middle of the agitator out and shine a torch down the center.You should see a 10 mm bolt.Grab a socket set and turn the bolt anticlockwise to remove it and then lift the agitator out.Please reply on how you got on and for more advice if needed.Looking forward to your reply.

The bottom part of the agitator will turn, but not the top part

The agitator has two parts. One is the bottom agitator and then you have the top agitator that moves the clothes around. If the top part of the agitator is not moving. You probably need to replace the dog ears. Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid. -- click on this link directly to get the detailed instruction for replacing dog ear
to remove the whole agitator check out the instructions as follows:
(1) Kenmore washer..... 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...picture1, picture2.
(2) Kenmore washer.....Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bold 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 thebolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator. also you can get the exact required parts from
This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.
