How do you take the agatator apart?

1. Remove the 'auger'( upper portion) center cap/dispenser by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2. If the 'agitator'( lower portion) 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 auger by carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the cam assembly parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this reassembly much easier.
5. With the auger removed grab the agitator at the bottom flanges and pull straight up to remove from the gearcase shaft.
If you need an illustration of how the components go back together, refer to any of these websites for helpful exploded view diagrams:
NOTE: When reassembling, make sure you get the auger seal seated properly. If it is not sealed, water will leak into the gearcase shaft and ruin it.

How do I remove the agitator from Whirlpool model LBR5133AW1?

Open the top of your washer and remove the cap on top of the agitator. It might be stuck, so you'll have to try turning it couterclockwise to unscrew it from the agitator.

There is another cone shaped cap under the top cap that you have to remove also. This might be stuck, so wiggle it back and forth to loosen it and pull it straight up and off. You can use a flat bladed screwdriver to GENTLY pry it up, if it's really stuck, but be careful so you don't damage the cone cap.

Once you've got that off, there is a screw or hex headed bolt that holds the agitator on the shaft. Remove that and the agitator should be able to be rocked back and forth while pulling straight up to remove it from the motor shaft.

There are other parts inside the agitator, but you shouldn't have to remove them from the agitator in order to remove the entire agitator assembly.

Here's a line drawing that shows your washer's agitator and wash tub to help you better understand the sequence and order of the parts involved. You can also use the searspartsdirect site to order any replacement/repair parts you might need, if you don't have a local appliance service center that carries them.,%20BASKET%20AND%20TUB&documentId=O2022909&backToLink=Return%20to%20subcomponent%20list

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a Kenmore 90 series washer, model 110, and the spin cycle makes a clanking sound and has trouble getting up to speed, then when I stop the spin cycle it just stops spinning very abruptly. I'm...

Don't try going through the side. The control panel unscrews from each side, pulls forward and then up. There are clips located on each back corner under the panel. un-clip each one and unplug the plug under the panel. Now tilt case froward. You can now get to every piece of the machine. It sound like a bad coupler. It's located behind the motor. un clip the pump, Take 1/4" screws from the clips on motor, un-clip motor and pull off wire plug. Now pull motor off. The coupler has three parts. One on the motor shaft, a rubber piece and another that is like th one on the motor that is on the transmission. See if the ears on still on the coupler. Make sure the piece on the motor and transmission are not cracked letting them spin on the shaft of either the motor or transmission. This is where I think you will find the problem. These pieces may look ok but I think one is slipping around the shaft.
Please rate solution if helpful.

Washer fills w/water but wont ageitate

Does the motor turn? if it does, you may need to replace the coupling between the motor and the transmission. This is pretty simple.

Remove the two screws on the head at each side, flip head back.
There are two clips on both sides. Note how they attach the cabinet to the back for replacement at reassembly time. Use screwdriver to pry these out, then pull cabinet off.
In front of the machine, you will see pump and motor assembly. Pry the clips off the pump, pull the pump straight off, then same with motor. You will see a three pronged connection there on the motor and the transmission. When you buy a replacement coupling (don't buy ahead of time in case this isn't it) it will come with replacements in case these are broken. Replace coupling assy and replace motor, pump and cabinet. Rescrew head, and this should solve your trouble.

Best luck

Drive shaft broken on conia top loader washer

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.

GE model number wdsr2080daww, machine will not agitate. How do you remove agitator?

You should be able to just grab the agitator and hank it straight up and off. Sometimes you might have to slip a belt or rope under the agitator and fasten the rope to a 2x4 or similar and then hank up on the board. Remove the plastic part under where the agitator was (one 1/2 inch head bolt) . If it does not come off, break it off with a chisel. If the metal spline shaft under that turns freely by hand, you have a bad transmission. If it does not turn by hand, just install a new WH49X10042 air bell (agitator drive) and replace the agitator.

Draining prob.

By code.probably not.. but if you aren't concerned about draining waste water outside.. it will work.. the idea of at least one bend is to keep water in the line as a trap to keep sewer gas from getting back into your house.. Also.. if you run the line without an air trap up high.. the water that remains inside the dishwasher will evaporate out and that's no t good for seals inside it.. I personally wouldn't do it but it is your call... Good luck

Check the muffler for obstructions. Remove the muffler and check the exhaust port sometimes they are near plugged. If so remove all the crud with the cylinder in up position to prevent getting carbon in cylinder. Trimm to adjust Turn both L and H set screws clockwise until they bottom the back each one out 1 and 1/4 turn. This should allow you to start the trimmer. Then rev to max rpm and adj. the H screw to max rpm. Then set the idle with the L screw with good idle without string head turning. Then when throttled it should do so without hesitation. Once this is set you may have to fine trim the H screw for max rpm again.
