Question about Kenmore 24052 Top Load Washer
I have a Kenmore model 24054 washer that leaves dark streaks on clothes. I assume it is coming from detergent/grime under the agitator. How do you remove the agitator to clean underneath it?
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:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
See the following for how to access the console, pull the cabinet, agitator(s) and tub if necessary.
You don't have to pull the pump, motor, transmission and drive tube to pull the agitator and tub.
A number of the diagnostics and repair procedures for these washers require you to remove the agitator(s).
In order to get the agitators out, you need to remove the "Spanner Nut" and "Drive Block".
Many instructions call for a special spanner wrench to remove the nut. However,
You don't need a special spanner wrench. (About $20 retail)
I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (About $9 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner
nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it.
Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal). Put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up with a hammer.
With the agitators and tub out, it's relatively easy to clean out the gunk that builds up over time.
