How do you remove adjatator on compact Sears 11044182400

in the hub and down the agitator about 10 inches down there is a 7/16 bolt has to be removed and then u can remove the agitator top to get to the cam dogs, but to remove the complete agitator u may need a special tool if u dont have one u can try using a rope wedged underneath the agitator and a hard pull upwards. can use a pc of wood to pry it.

I am having problems with my adjatator and I don't see what I should see (the dogs)

That model of washer does not have agitator dogs. the agitator drives directly from the drive shaft and does not ratchet like Whirlpool top load washers do.

The adjatator wont really turn to good how do i fix it

Had same problem with mine. useing a nut driver remove the bolt that is reached from the top of the agitator. The plastic teeth parts are called dog agits (not sure on that spelling) once the bolt is removed place the agitator on the floor and put your feet over the sides of the bottom section then you should be able to pull off the top section and will take a bit of force to do that. You will need your make and model of washer to get the dog agits and they aren't very expensive at all!! then of course put back together but make sure the top section is completely attatched to the bottom all the way so there won't be any extra space that wasn't there before!

Why does my washer make soo much noise when washing sheets??and the sheets wind up in a big ball

If the mod # begins with 110 its whirlpool built. Check to see if the top part of adjatator is moving grab the top of it turn back and forth it should turn the lower section in one direction but not the other.If it is not doing that and just spinning freely then your dogs are defective. cheap part and easy to replace do the test and get back for more info......Thanks for voting

Hi, I have a Kenmore 110.26832692, lately it's been making a loud grinding/thumping noise when agitating. The clothes end up wrapped around the agitator, sometimes even stuck underneath it. The basket...

Sounds like maybe the changing of the dogs might be the problem./The top section of your adjatator sould move freely one direction turn it the other way bottom section should move with it. If it does not do that then your dog install got messed up also you should not barely get fingers under botton section of adjatator/ Note the basket is not supposed to move when washing on this unit . see if unit is doing any of those things get back to us...Good luck

GE WJSR2070B won't agitate

There is a drive block under your adjator. You must pull the adjator off. Get your fingers ( Man Friend LOL ) under edge of adjator & pull. You will see a plastic pat with screw in it . if you can spin with hand , replace it .
