Hello. My Kenmore 80 Series/ Heavy Duty(Model # 110.24852300) is shaking like crazy during it's spin cycles. I've been doing research online about this. I will proceed in turning it over and searching for...


It is not recommended to turn the washer over, or on it's side. These top loaders have a direct-drive gearcase that is filled with oil. Laying the washer down can cause oil to leak from the breather hole on top of the gearcase unit.

I would recommend you check the level of the washer before doing anything else. These model washers have an auto level system on the back two feet, followed by a manual level on the front two feet. The following link explains this leveling system and how to properly level the washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3868923-level_whirlpool_top_loading_washer

An unlevel washer is the number one cause of off balance issues and vibration.

If you do wish to view the washer internal components, the correct way of accessing the interior is to remove the exterior washer case. This procedure is not difficult. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

Other causes of vibration (if the washer is level):

1. Loose suspension springs on the lower support under the drum.
2. Loose agitator bolt causing the agitator spin unbalanced.
3. Loose spanner nut under the agitator causing the wash tub to be loose.
4. Suspension pads under the drum worn out and requiring replacment.

You can view exploded view diagrams of your washer at any of the following websites to assist you with your inspection:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancepartspros.com
appliancepartspros.com

Refer the "Washer Base" drawing for a view of the suspension components. Refer to the "Agitator" parts list for a view of the agitator components.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

In the agitator, how do i remove the clear plastic cam holder so i can replace those little cams so the agitator works again


If the clear plastic piece you are referring to is the center post cap, it simply lifts up. If the model number is correct, the cap is listed as item 23 in this parts drawing:

http://pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php


Sometimes it can become gunked up with detergent and/or softener residue which can make it a little difficult get off. If it is on too tight, you can try reaching it with a pair of pliers and gently pull straight up on the handle portion. Make sure you do not damage the cap is it is required to provide and air gap to keep water from entering into the gearcase (transmission) shaft.

If you need further guidance, the following link explains how to access and replace the agitator dogs:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number for the agitator dogs is included in the instructions I provided. For a little more, you purchase the entire cam assembly (which includes the dogs, the cam and the bearing) for about $8 to $10. It is listed as item 9 in the drawing I provided and the part number is 285809.

Replacement parts can be found at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable, offer great service and have competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites have helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Agitator spindle isn't revolving


If the problem is just the agitator auger not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers (such as Kenmore) use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

These parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.

Thank you for posting your model number. The part numbers you may need are as follows:

Item 9 - If replacing the entire Cam Assembly: 285809 (includes the Dogs and the Cam Thrust Bearing).
Item 22 - Spacer Thrust Bearing: 3951608

All these parts can be viewed under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" section of the parts resource websites I listed for you. The last digit of your model number is a "zero" (0), vice the letter "O".
