Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

Things wear out! So is life!
Sounds like the coupling conecting the transmisiion to the agitater is worn out!
If I were there hands on I could be definite.

Only a hands on laundry tech can make thediagnoses.


How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE

SOURCE: not agitating

Check your drive coupler. Its the rubber piece between the motor and the transmission which makes the washer agitate and spin. the easiest way to check it is to lean the machine back and look for rubber on the floor. Then look behind the motor to see if it is still in tact. Next try wiggling it, If it wiggles a lot replace it. If that doesnt fix your problem, you probably have a bad transmission.

SOURCE: My washer will fill up and drain, but it wont agitate or spin

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Agitator is not agitating. It slips How to repair or replace?


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.

Agitator for whirlpool washing machine


The plastic dogs are stripped inside the center of the agitator. To remove agitator pop off the top center cover(slot for screwdriver) There is a 7/16 inch bolt with standard thread, remove it and pull out agitator. Pull the agitator apart, you can stand on the bottom half and pull on the top, you have to reassemble it with the new dogs replaced(there are four in a package) Fairly simple, no special tools needed,
good luck.

My washing machine doesn't agitate and makes a grinding noise


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, an agitation problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3965207-whirlpool_top_loader_no_spin_problem


I have included parts sources and instructions on how to replace any parts as well.

If this just a simple matter of the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.


Last of all, the most expensive problem that can occur, is a failed gearcase (transmission). The gearcase averages between $80 and $160 to purchase. If you wish to replace the part yourself, it is not that difficult. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576575-replacing_a_gearcase_on_whirlpool_manufa

The procedure is rather lengthy, but not as difficult as you would think. It can save you a lot in labor charges.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the following part numbers you may need:


Motor Coupling 285753A
Agitator Cam Replacement Kit 285811
Agitator Dogs 80040
Gearcase 3360629

NOTE: If you replace the gearcase, replace the motor coupling as well.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Agitator clicks when agitating clothes. With part removed, top part seems to click when rotated around stationary bottom part. How can this get fixed? Can the top and bottom part get separated?


this is the way it cleans your clothes
if you take it apart it will not move your clothes around to get them clean.
but yes it does come apart you have to hold the bottom down and pull real hard to seperate the 2 peices.
But if you want my advice I wouldn't
They are normally noisy machines.

Estate by whirlpool/agitator will not turn


under the top half of the agitator there are 4 agitator dogs. these pieces have edges to them that catch the inside of the upper agitator and if they are worn down, and they do wear, it will not move the agitator for you. hope this helps.

1 Answer

The agitator does not completely rotate unless you press down on it.


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured top loader with a split agitator design, this is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs. The upper portion of the agitator (called the auger) has a cam assembly with small agitator dogs that act as a clutching mechanism to drive the auger during the wash cycle. They wear out over time and need to periodically be replaced. The following link explains what they are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase replacements at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit which includes the dogs, cam, seals and washers.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If this is not a Whirlpool manufactured washer (which includes Kenmore, Roper, Estate, Frigidaire, Kelvinator) please let me know. If you are in doubt, please provide a model number and I can confirm for you. I hope this helps you.

Trying to connect agitator without dogs getting out of place


I thought the two parts would snap/connect together. They don't. Put the agitator on upside down over the "dogs" and their connector. Holding that together put the top agitator over the bottom. Carefully put over the metal connector inside the washer and connect the bult. The bult is what holds the pieces together.
To take apart initially I had to use a socket set with a long extension and a pipe over the racket handle to get enough torque to loosen the bult
