Kenmore washer 100.92380200 upper agitator not turning

The upper agitator is not turning anymore. The lower part does work but the upper part (big agitator) seems to be ''loose'' for lack of a better word. Do you have pictures of the repairs I need to do? Thanks in advance.

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.

Kenmore/Whirlpool WASHING Machine #110.26752502 top load Not Rinsing Thoroughly


usually the dogs in the upper agitator go bad. your agitator is two pieces. grab the lower agitator and turn the upper agitator. if you can turn it, the upper, back and forth. the dog cams are bad. very common problem. if they are stripped, clothes will not agitate in wash or rinse. plus machine can go out of balance easy. usually caused by normal wear and tear but is also a sacrificial piece in the even of an overload. common tools repair. good luck.

Upper portion of Whirlpool agitator not turning


Your agitator dogs are worn out. Remove the agitator and seperate the upper section from the lower section. There are 4 small teardrop shaped pieces that are the agitator dogs. They have either come apart over time or at least the teeth have worn off them.
Post back with any questions. Please verify the model number. I couldn't pull up a parts list for it. I know the last digit should be a 0 (zero) instead of an o.
Thanks/Mike

Kenmore washer will not agitate but will spin. Transmission spind free and motor was replaced. Could it be the capactor?


Hello,

No very likely it will not be a problem with the capiciator,what it does is gives the motor a extra jolt of power when it first starts to get the motor running,so if the motor runs the cap. is working normally. Since it does spin yet wont agitate the problem is very likely going to the transmission. HOWEVER FIRSTLY THOUGH I HAVE A QUESTION; is both the upper barrel of the agitator AND the lower paddles not agaitating or is just the upper portion notturning while the lower paddles work??

If both the upper and lower section aren't moving the problem will probable be the tranmission

IF JUST THE UPPER PORTION ISN'T WORKING the problem will be the part called the agitator dogs, thats a fairly common problem with the dogs to be worn out and just the upper part of agitator not working....this tip i wrote will show ya how to replace the dogs if that is what turns out to be the problem. http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10294924-top_part_agatator_isnt_turning_top_load

The top of the spinning post in the middle of the tub now won't spin when washing (evidently disconnected from lower part of spinning post)?


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/index.action

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

Some Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a two piece agitator.

The lower piece will turn both left and right while the upper unit is designed to turn only one way.

The device that allows the upper unit to turn only one way are called "Agitator Dogs" small plastic pieces that can wear over time.

See the following for how to check and replace them if they are worn.

See the Sears parts site for the agitator. These are relatively inexpensive parts.

Kenmore Series 80 Washer, Model 20852 - Agitator not turning well, making noise


Hi, If the washer spins properly but the agitator does not work, it could be the dog kit needs replaced. If the washer does not agitate or spin, it is probably the coupler.
Put the washer in wash cycle with no laundry in it and see if the lower prt of the agitator moves. If the agitator moves, try and hold the upper half of the agitator and see if it will only move one direction.The agitaor dog kit is designed to only let the top part of the agiator to grab one way. When they go bad, they can make some noise.
To replace the dog kit in the agitator, remove the top cap/rinse dispenser and the inner bolt cover. Remove the 7/16” bolt and lift the agitator out of the washer. Separate the 2 halfs of the agitator and replace the dog kit inside the upper part of the agitator.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

How do you replace Agitator directional cogs on a kenmore 80 series washer. lower agitator rotates but upright makes grinding noise and works partial of the time as if gears are slipping


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 series 80 washer: does not twist in the middle


Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn 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.
