The agitater is single kind. The bottom works great, but the top part don't do anything at all unless u put a hanger on inside of the softner cup and push against it. Then it works, but u have to hold it against it the whole time. So whats wrong??

Re: single agitater but top part don't work
Hi, You need to change the dog kit inside the agitator. Remove the 7/16" bolt holding the agitator in and lift it off the shaft. The agitator will pull apart and then you can see the dog kit.

Need more info, what kind of washing machine do you have? I am going to assume you have a front load washer. There is no agitater, instead the drum rotates, as the drum rotates the cloths roll up the side of the drum. When they are almost to the top of the drum they fall and the weight of the cloths themselves provides the agitating action. I have been using a front load washer for years, wouldent think of using a top load. Hope this helps..
The agitator is made in two parts. Upper and lower. The bottom part does the actual agitating. The upper part is supposed to be loosely fitted. It just screws down the clothes to contact the bottom agitator slowly. The top part turns one way, and slips the other way. By the action of what is called "Dogs" inside the top part. These dogs are probably worn and need to be replaced Take the top off the agitator and there is one bolt in the middle of the agitator. use a long extension to reach the bolt and remove it. Pull off top agitator (keep it straight up so you don't lose the dogs_ Go to local Appliance store and ask for Agitator Dogs. Replace Dogs exactly as they came out When you re-assemble the top it will be loose. This is normal. Good Luck! Thank you for using fixya Leo Ponder Please rate me if this helped.
sounds like the agitator cams are worn out. Pop out the top fabric sofner dome where you would put the downy into. (If your moddel has the green looking snapping ring just below the dome, you would have to snap it upwards and the dome comes off then theres a top cover you jus pop off) . . now you will see the agitator cam. I dont think theres a bolt that holds it down. You have to use a rachet extention that fits into that middle squar shaped hole and unscrew, then take out the agitator cam and replace the 4 little teeth. (make sure you put them in the same way and they slip in there slots ) hopefully this helps... http://www.partselect.com/KenmoreModels.aspx?ModelNum=11020982992&searchTerm
go to this this link. what you would need is the 3rd picture down. it says "Dog agitator/agitator cams" its the 4 little yellowish looking pieces.
OK The Kenmore 90 series mod.# 110.28912791 is not hard to work on. The problem on the washer was no agitation or spin.First I took the agitater out of the tub,and put them aside. Then I tilted the washer to get to the bottom of the washer. Inbetween the motor and I gueuss pump there are three pieces that need to be replaced called (motor coupler). I disconnected ac cord from wall outlet, the cold and hot water hoses. I disconnected the wires at the motor one piece and one two wire connection pluss move a small canister with two wires out of the way. Removed three bolts bottom of pump pulled pump and motor out, you have to turn back and forth a little and the whole assembly comes out. there are two screws that hold two clips at side of motor and motor come off easy. You will notice there is a black rubber disc with a plastic white three prong piece on each side. (Remove those pieces install same way ( you need to use something to hit the center of the plastic till it sets in, install black rubber piece six wholes three prongs on one side. Install second white pronged piece on the pump side and also hit center to set. Place pump over motor looking to (make sure) the top three prongs go inside three holes left in the black rubber piece. Once you line and they go inside line the motor to where the for rubber legs sat before put clips back on install the two screws, install shaft back in moving the motor side to side install the three bolts, hook wires plugs under the motor put canister with two wires back hook the two hoses back next to motor, stand washer back up, install agitater back, hook hot and cold hoses back plug back in and test. parts at sears (one hours time start to finish taking your time) keep track of all parts. Make diagram if you need to believe me it was easy and washer works great now. By the way when I took the parts off they did not look broken but were bad because now I have a working washing mashine. ( Good Luck, Wyatt Earp )
sounds like the agitater drive is stripped its a plastic piece under tha agitater you just grab the agitater work your fingers under the edges and **** up on it and it snaps off then remove the 5/16 screw put a new block on and snap the agitater back on
Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.
