The upper part of the agitator is loose and just spins. The main agitator turns okay


On a Whirlpool manufactured washers (such as Roper), the problem may be very simple, inexpensive and easy to repair.

Whirlpool uses 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 either worn agitator dogs, a worn agitator cam assembly, or a loose agitator bolt. 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 about $11 or $12.

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 post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub opening under the lid) and 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.

Kenmore washer 100.92380200 upper agitator not turning


Just fixed mine. You will need an agitator repair kit. It comes with cover seal, bolt seal ratchet pieces and thrust plate for the bottom of upper agitator. Remove fabric cup and cover underneath. Remove bolt and upper agitator. Simple fix. New parts have instructions to repair. Get the correct model number and buy it from an appliance parts place. Around $20.00 retail.

Agitator free spins


Remove the top cap on the agitator and see if the bolt has come loose. If it is not there, the agitator will come loose from the gear case shaft and free spin.

Agitator


The center cap of the agitator should just pop off by lifting straight up or gently prying with a flat balde screwdriver in the seam. If the upper agitator is just spinning around, then you probably have worn agitator dogs (yes, there is such a thing). The following link explains how to replace them:

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

As far as the smell is concerned, even though you don't use the dispenser, moisture can still get inside from the agitation of the wash cycle. Over a period of time it can mildew. You need to remove the center cap and periodically inspect and clean it. I hope this is helpful to you.

Washer fills and spins but does not agitate


Im sorry to say, it sounds like the transmission in the washer may have gone out, the unit it self sits at the bottem of the main agitator shaft under the the tub, you may be able to have this replaced, but shop around for the right price.
