SOURCE: I have bernina sport 801 machine and need to know

You can oil any two metal parts that move togeather or through each other. Do not oil bearings and do not oil gears. Do not use 3 in 1 oil or WD-40. Use regular sewing machine oil.
801's were made from 1979 - 1982. The way Bernina dated these on the machine is by the serial number. Your number would probably start with a 0 or a 1. 1970 is a 0, 1971 is 01, 1980 is 1, 1981 is 11, 1990 is 2, 1991 is 21 etc. etc.

SOURCE: washing machine agitates one way only

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.

Simpson washing machine ezi650 still wont drain after installing new pump


Why did you change the pump? Had you tested the old pump & made sure it was faulty? You need a multimeter and test the pump, the wiring for breaks and then check that power is actually getting to the pump. No power - No go!! If no power then probably a fualt on control board.

Keeps going out of balance


Most washing machines have an Out Of Balance (OOB) switch inside the electrics. This switch can control a number of functions within the machine. It may need replacing. I don't know where you would find it in a Simpson washer but the following website shows the switch in a Fisher & Paykel top-load washing machine.

Hi Allan, I have a Simpson enduro 801 washing 8KG Model No: 22S801 and I need a wiring diagram for this timer. If you can help me I would be very grateful, Allan.


Why do you need a wiring diagram? These things are permanently made part of the harness to the various parts. If you suspect the timer why not try another. There is little you could do to it, its likely to be a sealed unit. Tell us more about the fault?

I have a Simpson Ezi Set 450 top loader washing machine which doing everything else although it will not agitate, why?


Fairly common issue. Motor control module is shot.
You can get them from your local parts shop, or ebay.
Sometimes they are direct swap by the big plug, sometimes there is slight rewiring required (wiring diagram comes in kit and they are just spade connectors on to the timer, no splicing or anything).

If you take the top panel off and it does not have a module exactly like in the pic on ebay, make sure you are happy to do the wiring bit before buying (easy if you can read a simple wiring diagram)
