SOURCE: Whirlpool top loader washing machine - agitator does not turn

If it does not drain, I'd check the water pump first (for an obstruction - I found a sock in my pump and that fixed my problem) ... see this video - the top is getting to the WM drive shaft (transmission), but it shows you how to remove the pump first: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc&feature=related

If it does drain ... Is it just the TOP part of the agitator not working, or the whole thing (agitator is in 2 parts)? If just the TOP, you probably just need new "dogs" (agitator dogs). Check this out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5wIN1J70-Y ... it shows you what to do.

If it is the whole agitator that is stuck, that video will show you how to remove it (remove a single bolt) and you can see if there is an obstruction keep the agitator from moving.

If there's no obstruction or the water pump isn't stuck, you might be looking at a new drive/transmission = expensive. Good luck

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Merry Christmas! Our washing machine whirlpool

Hello there and merry christmas to you too
ok please read this solution fully this will be posted in 2 posts so i can get it all for you ok
There are a couple of different reasons that this problem happnes on these machines i have this listed below please feel free to leave me a comment on any of these if you need help trying to figure out how to inspect them or test them ok but you will need a multimeter to do most of the testing.
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) i will continue in the next post

How do i replace the agitator in my old heavy duty whirlpool washing machone?


Hello.

The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine is atop-loading clothes washer. The washer has several cycles to choose from,including cycles for washing normal clothes, permanent press items, delicateand items marked "Hand Wash." To do its job, thewashing machine relies on an agitator, located in the center of the wash tub.The agitator rotates during the wash cycle, moving the clothes around the washtub so that they are cleaned equally. If the agitator is broken, it will notsufficiently agitate the clothes and must be replaced. ·1 Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet or turn off the power supplyin your service panel. · 2 Open thewashing machine lid and remove any clothes remaining inside. · 3 Remove thefabric softener cup by squeezing the bottom lip of the cup and lifting itstraight off. · 4 Pry theagitator cap off of the top of the agitator with a flat-head screwdriver. · 5 Remove thebolt at the bottom of the agitator, using the socket wrench with extension, andthen remove the agitator from the washing machine. Tip the agitator to removethe bolt and washer. · 6 Install thenew agitator onto the drive shaft. · 7 Secure thenew agitator with the bolt that you originally removed. · 8 Press theagitator cap and fabric softener cup back into position on top of the newagitator. · 9 Restore powerto the washing machine to complete the repair.
Thanks.

Agitator does not turn ..... you can hold on to & it doesn't turn in wash cycle


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 (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you move the timer to the spin cycle and the washer drains and spins, the motor coupler (A common replacement part) is OK.

This points to one of two possible solutions.

First, I'd remove the agitator(s) and look inside at the splines inside the agitators and at the splines on the main agitator shaft.

Here is a description of how to remove the agitators. Your washer may be a bit different but the Sears site should help to determine how to do it.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=7a980a8b05b84ff3b7ee1c8ba46e2ae8

If yoy have a two piece agitator and only the top section doesn't agitate, the problem is likely the agitator "dogs" as described in the illustrations.

If the Agitator splines are worn or damaged, You'll have to replace the agitator.

If the splines on the transmission agitator shaft are worn, you'll probably need a new or rebuilt transmission.

In addition, see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual and parts list for their commercial washers (consumer models are basically the same).

Top agitator does not move on a whirlpool LSN100KQO Ultimate Care II commercial washer. how can i repair that?


I have run into the same problem and spent some time with it. There are little pieces that catch and release the top aggitator called dog agits(dogs). They are cheap and easy to replace but the problem is this aggitator is put together so that the top and bottom piece do not come apart. I dont know how this will resolove.

I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 washing machine commercial use. it its making a lot of noise I believe when spinning cycle changes as if the brakes are coming on noise gettting worse other than that...


here is one trick to do. put the timer on spin and pull out the timer knob. open the lid and use a screw driver to actuate the lid switch. then with your other hand hold the agitator until the tub gets to a high spin. once the unit is at a high spin then let go of the agitator. let the unit spin for another minute then lift up you screw driver. it should come to a gradual stop and not a sudden stop. let me konw if that works.

Washing Machine does not agitate


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.

Following is the Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on how top load, direct drive washers work with a troubleshooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Following is the Whirlpool parts list for commercial top load, direct drive washers although the consumer washers are basically the same.

The problem seems to point to the Agitate Cams in the transmission that raise and lower the Agitate gear on the main transmission shaft. These are relatively inexpensive to replace.

I'd also check the splines on the main agitator shaft and the two pronged "washer" on top of it.

I have a Whirlpool washer, model CAM2742TQ0, direct drive. This is a commercial machine. It agitates and drains properly, but tub will not spin. I can hear the motor running and what sounds like the pump...


Sounds like you have a bad brake & Drive tube (spin tube) the brake may not be ingaging or the ear are broken off the tube ( you can check this just remove the agitaator and you can check the ears)

let me know if you find out ,,
