SOURCE: How to remove agitator cam from the upper part of the agitator?

Had same problem with my washer. Check to see if there are little plastic tags holding top/bottom of agitator. after replacing dogs just ensure that you realign with tags so they do not break off.

Your model may have a flexible (break able) drive component between the motor and the transmission. Check that, it is a pretty easy replacement.

Noisy during agitate cycle whirlpool washer


Originally posted as solution to Kenmore 24992300 failure to agitate and loud whirring noise during spin cycle.... Hope this helps:


The problem as I noticed it was that the washer would start making a super high-pitched and very loud whirring noise during the spin cycle, and that when I would open the lid, the drum would not be spinning, but when I would close the lid, the drum would start spinning. I was okay with this during that load but after reading here and taking it apart, I realized what had happened:

The agitator dogs are supposed to have a 3-toothed profile on each one, but they become worn over time due to being made of a soft plastic. The dogs should "throw out" into an inner ring gear during normal operation, turning the entire drum. But when they became worn enough to slip, they would still throw out, grinding them at very high speed into the inner ring gear. Since they are made of a softer plastic than the gear, they were just getting more and more worn.

I assume the way this was supposed to fix itself was that when the outer tooth on the dog became worn, the next one would engage, but that didn't happen.

Because the dogs are made of such a soft plastic, I was able to cut a new tooth profile into each one, so that when they were put back in they would function correctly. It takes very little effort and a few minutes with an x-acto knife to cut the right profile.

I'm going to buy the replacement dogs, which being a manufacturer substitute will hopefully be made with a better tooth profile, from harder plastic, or both.

As another note, who knows how long the dogs weren't engaged correctly during agitation, causing clothes to sit without really being washed, but without the high pitched air raid siren. So probably a good idea to replace or repair them immediately, even if you can get it to work intermittently.

Kenmore 70 Series washer - agitates and drains but does not spin

Washer clicking and not spinning


The following advice is for replacing the “Agitator Dogs” on Kenmore and Whirlpool TOP LOADER style washing machines. This simple repair can save you a fortune in repair costs as the replacement parts are very inexpensive at a cost of less than $10. The replacement kit part number is 80040. You can order on line at various appliance parts websites, or use this part number and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer.

What are “Agitator Dogs”? These are small plastic pieces (usually 4) that are located under the agitator center cap that grip the agitator and turn it during the wash cycle. They can (and do) wear out dependent upon the use of the washer. If you are in the habit of doing large load sizes frequently, or wash large items such blankets or afghans, this can wear the teeth off and reduce the life of the agitator dogs.

SYMPTOMS REQURING REPLACEMENT: The agitator fails to turn during the wash cycle, or will not turn with a heavy load. The timer will run normally through all cycles, and you will be able to hear the gearcase (transmission) engage and run. The washer will also drain normally. The only indication that something is wrong will be the agitator slipping or not turning at all. The result will be clothes that do not wash properly and will sit on the bottom of the wash tub.

To replace the Agitator Dogs, follow these steps:


1.Remove the agitator center cap by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2.If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.
3.Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16” hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8” to ½” ratchet adapter to remove.
4.Remove the agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this repair much easier.
5.Place your hand over the top of the agitator and separate the upper portion of the agitator from the lower portion and turn the top half over in your hand. The agitator dog assembly will come out in your hand.
6.With the agitator dog assembly in your hand, lay the rest of the agitator aside. Pay careful attention to how the dogs are installed. Remove the worn dogs and reinstall new ones. It’s that simple.
7.With all the dogs replaced and the assembly still in your hand, place the upper part of the agitator over the top of it, upside down, ensuring the inner assembly tabs align correctly.
8.Now keep your hand over the agitator top to hold all the pieces together and turn the entire assembly over (upright position).
9.Carefully align and reinsert the upper portion of the agitator to the lower portion. Again, making sure the two pieces align correctly.
10.Place the entire agitator assembly back on the gearcase shaft and reinstall center nut. NOTE: DO NOT over tighten the nut, or the agitator will not spin correctly. Just make the nut snug. Reinstall center cap and inner cap (if equipped).

These instructions should give you the basics on how to perform this repair. Since there are various agitator types in use by Whirlpool and Kenmore, assembly can vary.

Kenmore elite won't agitate properly


Does the bottom of your agitator work correctly? We had the same problem if you pop the cap off the top of your agitator there is a cam in there with 3 dogs that engage the agitator causing it to spin. If the bottom part is agitating correctly then chances are the dogs in the cam assembly are shot. If the bottom is agitating correctly then it is very possible you have something stuck under the bottom section of the agitator. If this is the case remove the top cover (same as before it's just a lid that pops off) inside you will see a 1/2" square use a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 3" or 6" extension unscrew this piece remove the top section of the agitator then the bottom. Once the bottom is out check to make sure all is clear inside the washer. Reassemble in the reverse order making sure the lower section sits all the way down on the splines for the drive mechanism. If neither one of those solve the problem I would suspect you have an issue in the drive train of the washer.
