This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Basic top load, direct drive Whirlpool / Kenmore washers with two piece agitators use "agitator dogs" to allow the top section of the agitator to turn in one direction only.

These are plastic pieces and over time can wear.

See the following for how to replace them.

The agitator (upper portion) will not spin. If I


If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

See the part "Dog, agitator "

Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.

Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one direction only.

Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

Also see the following illustrated description of the above.

I have a sears Kenmore series 80 and the agitator doesn't work very well. It sounds like something is almost broken in the top of the agitator itself. How do I remove the agitator to find the problem.


If the top portion of the agitator (called the "auger") is no longer spinning like it should, you may have worn agitator dogs. The following link explains how to access and replace them:

Kenmore Series 80 top loading washer that doesn't spin or agitate


Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!

Dual Agitator not working


If the upper portion of the agitator is not working, this is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs. The following link explains:

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

Yes...there is such a thing. These small plastic pieces have been the source of many trouble calls and only cost a few dollars to replace if you know how to do it. Replacements can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, or repairclinic.com. Use your model number for the search criteria and look under the "Agitator Parts" section. The link also give instructions on how to remove the agitator. This is a very simple repair, that only costs a few dollars. If you wish not to order on
line, use the part number provided by the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part they will have in their inventory. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore washer machine series 80


If it will not spin either, you most likely have a broken drive coupler. This machine is "direct drive" and has no belt. As techs, we see this several times during our work week. Otherwise, if you have the "two piece" agitator, you may simply need new "dogs" in the agitator. if the machine spins fine, fill it only on the smallest load size with no clothes in it. When the agitate cycle starts, take note if the bottom section of the agitator is going back and forth. If it is, and the upper part does not "ratchet" then you just need to rebuild the agitator and that is an easy job.

Kenmore 80 series won't spin


If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#
Part # AP3096209
