Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
My washer does okay washing clothes, but when it's washing, it sounds like the agitator is skipping (or something is) inside the tub. How do I take the agitator off to check it out? where do I get a new one?
Remove the center cap, or fabric softener dispenser (if installed) from the agitator center post. There should be another cap (used as an air gap) under the center post cap. Remove the cap and locate the agitator bolt. Using a socket and ratchet, hold the agitator still with one hand and loosen with other. The upper portion (called the auger) should lift off, first. Then, grasp the agitator by the flanges at the bottom of the wash tub and lift straight up. This will reveal the gearcase (transmission) shaft.
Now...is the entire agitator slipping? Or, is it just the auger? If the auger is slipping, you may just need to replace the agitator dogs. The following link explains:
Read through the link provided and let me know if you still need assistance. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If the dogs are worn and need replaced, you only need to remove the auger and not the entire agitator.
