If the entire agitator is slipping, you probably have a loose agitator bolt that requires tightening. If its only the auger (upper portion of the agitator), you have worn agitator dogs that need to be replaced. The following link explains how to replace the dogs:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number for the agitator dogs is included in the link provided, along with how to locate and tighten the agitator bolt if it was found to be loose. Do not overtighten the bolt as this can cause damage to the agitator and/or restrict its movement. Tighten until snug.

The dogs can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For just a bit more you can use part number 285809 and purchase the entire cam replacement kit which includes the cam, the bearing and the dogs for about $8.

If you have questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi, This agitator is a 2 piece agitator. Can you see if the lower half on the agitator is working properly? If the lower part is working and the top is not, you will need to change the agitator dogs. If neither half are working, you might be having transmission issues.
To change the dog kit, re,ove the top cap on the agitator and locate a 7/16" bolt. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Pull the agitator apart and the dogs are 4 small plastic pieces inside the top half of the agitator.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

At the end of the spin cycle, my Kenmore Washing Machine makes a grinding noise like an out of balance brake drum. What could be the problem


If your washer model number starts with 110. it's a whirlpool washer. Whirlpool use a spin tube with two notches in it. There is a block assembly that holds the inner basket down on to the spin tube. This can be accessed by removing the top of the agitator and take out the 7/16 screw. Lift the agitator to expose the top of the spin tube. The tube is stripped on top where the basket sits. When the washer stops spinning, the inner basket keeps moving. That is the noise you hear. Replace the spin tube and possibly the block.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Pick up a copy of the Nov."The family Handyman" magazine. Pg. 60 shows your problem and how to repair it. Most likely it's a broken coupling,
