If you have the model number (lift lid and model, serial # etc. are on the cabinet, you can go to the Sears parts site.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.26902691&pop=flush

Enter your model number instead of the 110.26902691

Then look under the heading Agitator, basket and tub.

The problem may be the "agitator dogs" (4 plastic pieces that allow the top agitator spin one direction only.

Beyond that, the agitator connects to the main drive shaft (with one bolt) in the transmission.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, and the problem isn't the dogs, you can pull and open the transmission. In it are a number of gears, springs, cams etc.

A Whirlpool manual (posted on a number of sites) gives a diagram and operating flow for the washer showing how the transmission works.

We had a problem with a lot of noise on our Kenmore and traced it to a plastic cam and follower in the transmission that wasn't lifting a gear far enough above the main drive gear so that we were getting a lot of gear clashing noise.

It sounds like the motor is heating up and tripping the overload. The squealing is probably coming from you pump. Tilt the washer back and turn the pulley for the pump by hand and if it make the squeal, replace. If it does not you may have a bad transmission.

Kenmore Series 80 Washer, Model 20852 - Agitator not turning well, making noise


Hi, If the washer spins properly but the agitator does not work, it could be the dog kit needs replaced. If the washer does not agitate or spin, it is probably the coupler.
Put the washer in wash cycle with no laundry in it and see if the lower prt of the agitator moves. If the agitator moves, try and hold the upper half of the agitator and see if it will only move one direction.The agitaor dog kit is designed to only let the top part of the agiator to grab one way. When they go bad, they can make some noise.
To replace the dog kit in the agitator, remove the top cap/rinse dispenser and the inner bolt cover. Remove the 7/16” bolt and lift the agitator out of the washer. Separate the 2 halfs of the agitator and replace the dog kit inside the upper part of the agitator.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise


It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.
