I own a Whirpool Washer machine model LSC6244AW0. I noticed that when the machine is on, the washer agitator spins while the Agitator Auger does not spin. It usually sits in place and sometimes, when I have a full load, it spins very slowly only because the bottom agitator creates a motion. When the washer is not running, i am able to spin the agitator auger with my hand. All other parts are running fine. Please advise me on solving this issue, with any replacement parts need. Thank you very much.

SOURCE: I havea Kenmore Series 70 Washer. I top agitator

Take the softner dispensor out then you have a clear cap, remove that it just comes right out.
Then you will see a 7/16" screw take that out. Then the top will easily come out.

Very easy can do it in like 2 mins.

The hard part is lineing it all up to put it back in. Let me know if you need any more help.

SOURCE: I have a Whirpool washer with a two stage agitator. Top part stop

This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs on the agitator cam assembly. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:

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

The part number is included in the link 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 cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs. If the model number you listed this under is correct, the part number for the kit is AP3138838 and sells for about $11.

NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Kenmore model #23922 washing machine won't spin

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.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Agitator makes a ratcheting sound seems to be slipping. do i need a whole agitator or is there a kit to fix this problem?


If this is a Whirpool manufactured washer (includes Kenmore, Estate, Kelvinator, Kitcheaid, Frigidaire, Roper and others), the agitator has a split design. The lower portion is the agitator, while the upper portion is called the auger. Under the auger is a cam drive. The cam acts as a clutching mechanism that drives the auger when the agitator moves. The cam has small plastic teeth called "dogs" that commonly wear out causing the auger to slip. The following link explains how to replace them:

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

The part number is included in the link and can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. For a little more you purchase the entire cam replacement kit which includes the cam, bearing, any seals, and the dogs.

If this is not a Whirlpool manufactured washer, or simply don't know, please post back with your complete model number (located under the washer lid along the tub rim on most washers).

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer does spin but barely agitates


It sounds like the agitator dogs are worn.
To remove the agitator, pry off the agitator cap and remove the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out pull up on the top section of the agitator (auger) to remove it. Underneath the auger you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). . Replace those and it should be ok.

Whirpool lsq9244eqo fills and drains but does not spin or agitate


It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

This problem is usually caused by the wig-wag not functioning. There are ele celinoids on it and they go bad. If the washer agitates properly but you just dont get the spin cycle, its probably the wig-wag. You can look up the part on sears parts site and see if it is still available or obsolete.
