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