It may be the agitator directional cogs, aka agitator dogs. If you remove the top "cover" on the agitator, they're inside of there. They are 4 yellow/clear colored rubber pieces with little teeth. If the teeth are gone or worn, that is most likely your problem. Click here to see a picture, and part details.

Kenmore 80 Series 110.27802690 agitator barely moving


It's the transmission that's bad. The motor turns one direction to spin and the opposite direction to agitate. The transmission converts the constant belt speed from the motor into the back and forth motion. In the other direction, the transmission stops and the whole system spins.
(I don't suspect you have it set to "delicates")

The agitator is only working in one direction so the washing is getting tangled


The top portion of the wash tub agitator is designed to rotate in the clockwise direction. It should be intermittent. Turn stop turn stop ....in its normal operation.

There is a set of plastic cams that allow for this function. Below the top agitator the lower agitator goes back and forth. With a short load the water just reaches the upper agitator. Try short load. Other possibility the tub is under filled try increasing the water level.

Admiral washer aav7000aww-agitator only spins one direction-doesn't agitate-it stirs the laundry.


Remove the agitator, and turn the transmission pulley, one way, the spin basket will spin, the other way, the transmission spindle should go back and forth. If not, you have a bad transmission.
Here is the transmission to order if you should find it bad.

The agitator will not spin. It just goes back and forth


The machine has 1 motor rotating in 2 directions. one direction for agitation ( moving back and forth from one mechanism) the other for spinning (squeezing water out of clothes by another mechanism). The problem with the machine is the mechanism for spinning. The mechanism includes the clutch, the brake, the pulley to push the brake open so the shaft can engage with the turing direction from the motor. The part is cheap, but the labor is expensive since the tube has to be out to replace this. This is the idea to know what the serviceman talks about so you don't get rip-off.

If no.
Check the direct drive coupling on the motor.

Agitator spins in one direction


The purpose of the upper portion of the agitator is to push the clothes in a downward motion. As the agitator moves the dogs grab and on the backward srtroke the top portion rotates a quarter turn. In the spin mose the agitator only goes in one direction or your clothes would be torn to shreads.As the washer rotates back and forth, the dogs grab the inner walls of the upper agitator and that forces the clothes into a downward movement to the bottom of the tub. These dogs will wear out. To test whether or not these are bad just grab the agitator while in wash mode. The dogs should advance the top portion easily. If not then they are worn out. To replace them you must remove the agitator and sit it on the floor. Hold the base down with your feet and yank the top upwards. After seperating the 2 pieces you simply install the new dogs and line up the bottom with the top being careful not to break the little tabs on the bottom agitator that hold the top in place.
