SOURCE: Kenmore 90 series agitation problem

suppose to not spin unitl the lid is closed( safety reasons) the reason for the "weak agitation " is a bad set of agitator dogs. by removing the center fabric softener cup, you can get to and unscrew the center shaft bolt7/16. after removing the bolt, the agitaor will remove and the agitator dogs canbe replaced. part number 80040.youll need to split the agitator top and bottom to insall them . they simply slide into place.

SOURCE: Clothes sometimes get under the agitator requiring

Sounds like your agitator is not assembled correctly. It should not have things getting stuck constantly and it should definitely NOT be so easy to remove. Feel around the bottom edge of your agitator. If there is more than a 1/8 - 1/4 inch gap (roughly), it's not being snapped all the way down. Take a towel and fold it to where it is nice and fluffy. Lay it over the top of the cone part of your agitator. Get a hammer and hammer over the towel (as not to damage the agitator top). A rubber mallet could also be used. Tap firmly until you hear a click or until the gap between the agitator and wash tub reach 1/4 -1/8 of an inch. This should solve the problem.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

Why will my washing machine fill, go through wash cycle and most of way through rinse cycle, then stop. When I open lid, clothes are wrapped around agitator very tightly, so unwrap and close lid for m


Your main bearings are gone. Either have it repaired, $$ or "upgrade" to a new one!! I have one of those "new high efficiency" washers and I HATE IT!!!!! You can't wash sheets, comforters, etc,.. they wad up with everything else inside the sheets,etc..eventually you have to rewash everything separately. I would gladly trade this $1300.00 POS for a cheap old style!!

Agitator getting clothes wrapped underneath bottom not releasing


Could be a Major issue! Unless the agitator will unhook from inside the tub. See if the Very Top of the agitator unscrews. If it does then the agitator should come up. The motor is directly connected to or part of the agitator shaft.

I have a kenmore top load washer, The top part of


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.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The top section of a two part agitator is designed to turn only one way. If the "agitator dogs" in it are worn, it wont agitate either way.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

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 on how to do it.

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.


Im not very familiar with that type of top loadign washer,,, but on most agitators there is a bolt that runs down the center of the agitator, connecting it to the transmission/gearbox. Usually there is a cap, or softner dispenser that can be pulled off, revealing this bolt.

Agitator removal


Yes it does, I believe the dispenser will twist an 1/8 turn and pop off. There is a cap with a handle below it that pulls out. The last part is a bolt. Try a 7/16 deep well socket with a nine inch extension, grasp the agitator and loosen it. Leave bolt intact and lift agitator from the bottom. Looking from the date if you have solved the issue this will stand as a general post for ag removal.
