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.

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.
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.
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
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
With a flat blade screwdriver or putty knife, remove the top cover from the agitator. Use pliers to pull out the inside plastic cover.Take a 7/16 socket on a extension and remove the nut .Pull the agitator out. It should separate. If it does not separate,stand on the lower half and forcefully pull up on the upper half.Remove the agitator dogs and spline gear from the upper agitator. Replace the dogs. Re-assemble the agitator. Wash clothes.
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.
could be worn agitator dogs try turning upper portion of agitator by hand and listen for slight rattle or motion in both directions if dogs are bad remove cap and center bolt pull upper part of agitator off dogs are in ceter of upper part ..part number 80040
