You need a agitator repair kit...about 20 bucks plus ship, not a difficult repair.

SOURCE: 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.

I have a Lady Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care Heavy Duty 90 series top load washer that is about 20-25 years old and works very well. I think that an object has slid under the big thing in the middle of the...


if it is like the other you have to remove the top cover of the agitator cap with a small flat head screwdriver, then using a 7/16" socket and ratchet with an extension remove the bolt(right hand thread) and pull up the agitator.

good luck to you.

Agitator problem


It sounds like the agitator dogs are worn (in your case they have likely broken into little pieces) and need to be replaced. Remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). . Replace those and it should be ok.

The part number is 80040

This part is common among most Kenmore/ Whirlpool models. If it doesn't look like the right part, please post the model number and I will try to assist you further.
Good luck!

Broken Washing Machine Agitator


probably just what is known as agitator dogs just worn ..with no brand or model i assume it's a whirpool or kenmore ..1st remove softner dispenser (without brand can't say how it would come off ..some twist off some just pull off ) if agitator has cap underneath pull it off in center of agitator should be a bolt 7/16 if kenmore/whirlpool..remove it pull up on top half ..whole thing may come out if so just pull up sharply on top part..center part of top half comes out dogs are on it( 4 )again i'm assuming kenmore/whirlpool whirpool part # 80040 replace them and reassemble ..if any other brand will probably have to replace entire agitator..good luck
