Kenmore 80 series top loading washer won't agitate and is noisy

Help! I have a 5 year old sears kenmore washer model #110.23812100. I made that terrible mistake of thinking that it would not hurt to wash a sleeping bag. After that my washer will not agitate and makes a really loud clicking noise that causes the washing machine cord to become really hot and makes the lights in my basement ficker on and off in sequence with the washer clicks. There isn't any black dust or any signs of leaks (either water or oil) underneath. It fills, spins and drains normally. Any ideas? I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Re: Kenmore 80 series top loading washer won't agitate...

Sounds like u may have broken the coupler gear between the motor and transmission... the replaced the belt with these gears on this model... But should go fill & pumb water out and NOT spin Or agitate... IF these gears or broke or stripped... heavy loads like u  said would do this... recheck and see if wash will pumb water out But will NOT agitate or spin.. IF so the above is your problem  and is Not to hard to repair  or much money

Below is a pic with the motor remove the white piece in the middle is 1/2 of the gear system with a rubber piece in the middle (not there)  and another like gear on the motor
sounds like these gears may be broken or stripped on your washer

Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin or agitate

check to make sure the belt hasn't come off. if it's direct drive make sure the shaft is working and moving freely. if all of these check out the motor that turns everything my be stuck, frozen up or just bad all together.

I have a top loading Kenmore series 80 washer. The cycle starts, agitates, but won't drain and go into a spin mode. It just stops after the agitate is done and remain full of water. It won't...

This is usually a door closed switch that is either a bad Lid switch It is number 11 on the diagram on this page

The upper portion of the agitator (Kenmore Series 80 top load)stopped spinning as if the thread has stripped. What parts need to be replaced?

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:

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

Basic top load, direct drive Whirlpool / Kenmore washers with two piece agitators use "agitator dogs" to allow the top section of the agitator to turn in one direction only.

These are plastic pieces and over time can wear.

See the following for how to replace them.

Kenmore washer 80 series

you need to check the lid switch, does it click. you can unplug and then remove the 2 screws to see it, if it looks like it is coming apart then the lid switch is bad. you can buy one for about $40 or so dollars. i am assuming it doesn't spin either.
