Kenmore 80 series model no. 110.26842691

My washer is about 10 yrs old and is constantly ripping and tearing large items like sheets, towels and my husbands shirts.
I do not use bleach and I do not use hot water - All my sheets and towels have turned into rags. I had someone come out and they said that my agitator was fine. Can someone tell me why this is happening and what I should do?

My washer will not take water. There is no delay for water to fill up and the machine starts to wash immediately. All cycles work normally.

Your agitator may be fine but how is your washer behaving is it trying to perform two acctions at one time like spinning and agitating at one time the tarnmission may be locked up

He5t tearing clothes

Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

It's quite possible. First see the Sears parts list for your washer with diagrams of all major parts.!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+110.28812790&pathTaken=partSearch

Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers and check the troubleshooting section.$FILE/L-55.pdf

My Sears Kenmore, 2 years old washing machine is ripping clothes

If this has a paddle,check it for a sharp edge,also make sure it is not loose, the top cap should be able to be pulled off to see the locking
bolt,and you can check to see if it has loosened.

Feel everywhere on the inside of the washer for a edge that might be catching your cloths. You can also try the gentle cycle and see if it does not rip them.

You did not post the model# ,so I have no clue what style it is.

Clothes and sheets come out wrinkled and twisted

Try not to wash large items with small items the large items like sheet will twist around the small item. causeing twisting and wrinkling. Also If you are overloading the clothes or underloading the clothes they will come out wrinkled. I would try to do some testing wash a load of only towels then wash a load of only t-shirts and other light weight items that you may have. Then do just a load of your jeans. What happens? Please let me know

Kenmore 80 series makes noise in sping cycle

Its the transmission. Try to find a used appliance store in your town. Most save used parts and you should be able to pick up a used tranny for around 100 bucks.

Washing machine woes

Buy a new machine. You have used it well. After Two repairs I suggest replacements

Since you are not paying for water I would suggest a top loader. I have been Happy with Kenmore (Whirlpool in Kenmore skin) or look at a Speed Queen Top loader.

Dont over load your new machine, learn what it can and cant handle.

Best of Luck T
