Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Top part of agitator appears not to have a solid connection to the bottom part that sits on the floor of the washer. It is making a loud noise which I can replicate when the washer is empty and I manually spin the top part of the agitator back and forward. I have read from earlier posts this might be the coupler? All else works well. Appreciate any self-help available. Thank you.
The motor coupling is located between the gearcase (transmission) and the drive motor. If the motor coupling were broken, the washer would not agitate or spin. You mentioned that everything else worked fine, so I'm assuming the washer still agitates. If this is only the upper portion of the agitator (called the "Auger") slipping and making noise, the problem is worn agitator dogs. This is a very simple repair that costs very little to repair. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:
I have included the part number for the dogs. Replacements can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. If you have questions about this repair, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
