It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore 70s washer is failing to aggitate. it will fill and drain, but not aggitate


Does it even try to agitate weakly?

Could be a stripped agitator, bad wig-wags (Common term for the solenoids that control the transmission) a broken wire or the trans, itself.

I want to replace the aggitator but cant pull it


Some models have a fabric softener dispenser located at the top of the agitator that must be pulled off so you can get access to the fastener that holds the aggitator onto the transmission/motor shaft. Some are just pressed onto the motor shaft and after years of use, get gunked up (yep, that's the technical term for it!). You can pour some hot water down the agitator tube to help flush out the gunk and that should make it easier to remove the agitator.

Also, check along the bottom of the agitator to see if there is a small hole that might be concealing a locking set screw that is holding the agitator onto the shaft. It varies from model to model, so look all over and around the agitator before exerting any force in an attempt to pry it off the shaft.
Try to get your hands under the bottom lip of the agitator at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and try to rock it back and forth while pulling up and it should work itself free.

Just be sure you have removed any screw or hex headed fastener that could be holding the agitator onto the shaft 1st!

Will not agitate 110 92587210 Kenmore Washer


I have 2 words for you: "dog ears".

the dog aggitation ears are what cause the aggitator to aggitate. Those things wear down and not grab after time.

Pretty easy to change out. You just need to pull the aggitator out and change the 4 little plastic ears. Good luck :)

My Kenmore model 80 washer won't aggitate but spins and drains without issue. The aggitator tries to move but acts like there is a gear stripped or something.


you will need to purchase an agitator replacement kit for your washer and, the clutch will need to be replaced as well. these components are damaged and, replacing them will restore your units agitation functions.

Roper top load washing machine that won't aggitate


Hi, It is most likley that the coupler is bad. The coupler connects the motor to the transmission. If the motor runs and you get neither spin or agitate, this is the most common problem. If this is something you want to try and fix, you can go to 222.whirlpoolsurplusparts.com and there I have a detailed article on how to change the coupler.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks,
Vic

Aggitator is stripping out


It's easy, your agitator dogs are bad. They are little teeth that sit inside the agitator. If you remove the top of the agitator you will see 4 small gizmos that sit inside there. They have teeth that catch the teeth on the agitator and stop it when it agitates. The teeth on the agitator dogs are just worn out. They cost around 7 dollars from your local appliance repair shop and are easy to replace. Just pull out the housing for the dogs and replace them. You buy them in a set of four. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and have a great weekend.
