Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

How can I retrieve a key. A key slipped down beside the blue thing that replaces the old agitator.

I removed the washplate cap. Can I remove the "agitator" by removing the 3/8 screw, retrieve the key, and put it back w/o problems?

How to remove the washplate (agitator) to remove loose change .I have removed the plastic cap and removed one bolt but it still doesnt lift up, help


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5137800&diagram_id=28247413#d28247413 The Impeller or agitator can be removed from the washing machine by pulling the top cap off of the impeller or agitator and removing the 7/16" bolt that is hidden underneath. This will allow you to examine and replace the agitator roller cams or lift the inner wash basket out to access the outer tub, tub sump, and lint filter for cleaning.

Agitator not moving--seems loose


This washer has what we call a bionic agitator and this agitator has a 2 parts:
it has a base and a top section.
IF the BASE IS NOT WORKING AT ALL, please have the transimssion checked and also check the coupling.
IF the BASE is working and the top is NOT
THEN replace the 4 plastic AGITATOR DOGS that are in the agitator.

Remove the CAP from the agitator...remove any plastic cap.
Get a socket wrench and get the socket that removes the bolt.
remove bolt...
PULL the agitator from the base and separate the top from the bottom.
Take the top and turn it upside down to remove the platic interior part that holds these 4 dogs. REMOVE the old dos and replace with new and do a reverse engineeriong putting agitator back.

Agitator not turning when washing Whirlpool ultimate II super quiet mod # LSQ9264HZO, everything else seems fine, spins rinses, drains, replaced timer disconnected lid switch wired together besides that no...


This is a common problem among Whirlpool washers. There are 4 dog leg shaped plastic cogs fitted inside your agitator and these are worn or broken there won't allow the top of the agitator to grip to the lower portion. therefore getting little or no agitation. the part number for the dogs are 80040 and come in a package of 4. if there is more damage done to the agitator dog support, you may need to replace the cam as well which is part number 285809. both are very low in cost and involves only taking the agitator , which can be done by taking the dispenser cap off and removing the 5/16 screw. after this you can take an old belt or similar rope type object, and remove the agitator. some agitator require a lot of force to remove but persistence is the key. Hope this helps.

Thanks

Kenmore calypso has clothing stuck


I believe the problem is the Outer Wash Plate. Replacing it may fix your problem. I am about to do that to mine, so I don't know yet. The outer plastic 'seal' or rim of the washplate should be touching the inner surface of the stainless steel wash basket. So it catches clothes. I just installed a u-joint kit today, so needless to say, I got out the washplate and retrieved my clothes on the way to replacing the u-joint. It involves leaning up the upper lid and cover, removing the tub ring and balance ring and the dome. Then there are 6 bolts to remove the outer wash plate to get to your clothes underneath. Might as well replace the washplate while you are at it. to download the manual, copy this https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2c1e295a88aaaae885256c5d004632a4/$FILE/8178010.pdf
into your internet explorer address line and save the manual. page 36 starts the instructions I used to remove the washplate and other items. I spent a LOT of time cleaning the gunk out.

If your machine uses a washplate or agitator there is one 7/16 bolt under the center cap or fabric softener dispenser. After this a agitator will lift from the bottom and a washplate will need assistance by grabbing the basket and lifting quickly to pop the washplate up so it can be grasped.

I have a Kenmore washer about 12 years old. The agitator seems to be slipping...doesn't move very much and stir up the clothes. What could be the problem?


You need to purchase agitator dogs and install them in between the two parts of the agitator. They just pull apart. Turn the top part upside down and look down in there. You will see some small, fish shaped plastic things, remove them. & replace with new.

Clothes getting sucked under agitator


I was able to find information on another web site with a Whirlpool Calypso repair manual: https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2c1e295a88aaaae885256c5d004632a4/$FILE/8178010.pdf

Check out steps 5 and 6 on page 36:

6. Using two (2) flat bladed screwdrivers, 90°
apart, in the notches provided, separate the
dome from the outer wash plate. (Fig. 3-11)

7. Remove the six (6) 3/8” bolts securing the
outer wash plate to the universal joint.
(Fig. 3-12) Remove the outer wash plate
from the basket.

That gave me enough room to lift the outer wash plate and remove three napkins and a wash rag.

P.S. Take precautions to keep the bolts from dropping under the outer wash plate.

Washer will not agitate but will spin


You are correct that motor turns one direction for agitate and the other for spin. The problem you describe sounds serious but there is a chance it is not. First, try to turn the transmission by hand. If it wont turn by hand, remove the agitator and see if something has gotten under it and has it locked to the basket. To remove the agitator, pop off the top cap and look down inside. You will see the bolt that holds the agitator on. After you take it loose the agitator will slide off.

If there is nothing there, the transmission will need to be replaced. If the washer is less than 5 years old, the transmission may still be covered by warranty. Check your owners manual for warranty details. Post back to let me know what you find out.
