Agitator not agitating!

During wash cycles agitator will not move, it tries but will not move. This happens no matter how little of big the washer is loaded. It does when it is empty but that is it.

It sounds like your agitator dogs are worn and need replacing. Yes...there is such a thing. They are small teflon (I believe) plastic pieces that help the agitator grip properly. There are 4 of them under your agitiator cap and costs about $6.00 for a package of them. It only takes minutes to replace. If you can give me your EXACT model number, I can determine a part number for you, and give you advice on how to change out the dogs. Post back with your comments and let me know.

    The part you need can be found at repairclinic.com under item number 2744, or 470915. Its an agitator repair kit and it costs between $13 - $17 plus shipping. You can also find these kits at any appliance repair store if don't wish to wait. I also have a Sears part number of 80040 if you wish to only replace the small dogs themselves. They generally cost about $5 - $6 for a 4 pack. You will need to inspect your components to see which type of kit you will need. To access the agitator components, all you have to do is remove the center cap from the upper auger of the agitator. You do not have to remove the entire agitator. There is a center bolt that has to be removed with a deep socket. Remove the upper auger and you will find all the components that help drive your agitator. Take care when removing parts so you know how they go back in. The kit should have instructions with it, just in case. I hope this is the information you needed. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Kenmore washing machine won't agitate?


You are referring to the "agitator dogs". Does the unit run during the wash cycle put the agitator does not move?

Agitator not spinning/moving during wash cycle (although it does spin during the spin cycle)


hELLO THERE:
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. an to repair it. Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Agitator doesn't spin during wash cycle


If The washer won't agitate
Check to make sure no clothing got wrapped around the agitator. Check the lid switch, timer, and drive belt, other potential causes, such as a bad transmission or bad agitate/spin solenoid, but they are much more involved.
if the washer won't spin, the lid switch, timer, drive belt, transmission, or agitate/spin solenoid could be the cause here as well. Sometimes if the load is unbalanced or too heavy, the washer won't spin. Take some of the clothes out and try the spin cycle again with a lighter load.

Here are the steps to replace the agitator.
1: Take the fabric softener dispenser off and pry off the agitator lid.
2: Use a socket wrench with an extension bar to remove the stud and seal.
3: Remove the agitator top and bottom.
4: Check the agitator clutch assembly (located in the agitator top) for excessive wear.
5: To replace, just reverse the directions.

Ge washer won't agitate


If the washer won't agitate at all, but the motor and belts are turning,
then you may have drive coupling or transmission issues. In this case, it
is well worthwhile to have a technician check the machine to verify this.
Sometimes, the base of your agitator can strip out, especially from
overloading. In such a case, the splines are damaged inside the agitator,
and can be seen after the agitator is removed.

If you can hear the motor running, and the water is moving a little bit, but not like normal where the clothes are being worked around you might just have worn out agitator dogs. This is a really easy 15 minute do it yourself fix, and the parts are less than $10 and widely available.

Kemore 90 Serieswashing machine fills and spins but won't agitate


Remove the agitator and see if the agitator shaft moves during agitate. If it moves then the agitator spline is worn or the agitator dogs are worn and the top half of the agitator will not work. If no results then the gearcase would have to be replaced

Just spins during the wash cycle


Sounds like the agitator got dislogged during moving. In some machines the design allows for the agitator to move up and down alittle too much. Try this and this is only a guess. With the machine empty push down firmly on the agitator and move it back and forth as you do. You might hear a little "pop". If it does, try running the machine again. If it works problem solved, if not tell what happened.
