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.

You have stripped out the Aggitator or the Bolt came loose. Pop the Top on the Aggitator. There is also a chance that there is SOAP build up inside that is causing a problem depending on the machine...

I cant lift trhe bottom aggitate plate in my hmwm8000 i have removed the cap and phillips head screw how tov lift the plate?


there should be a bolt holding aggitator on spines,if not try grabbing aggitator and pulling up while rocking aggitator back and forth it will require a great amount of force to remove aggitator fron splined shaft,also so penatrating spray may help sprayed on splined shaft.It also may need to be cleaned around splined shaft to clean built up soap build up. also a haet gun or a hair dryer on high heat on top of aggitator shaft when trying to remove may help!

Washer will not aggitate all other functions work fine


Sounds like you need a set of dogs...(dog agits)...

Pop the top off the agitator and remove the bolt. Pull the agitator top off and inspect the dogs...(small tear drop shaped pieces of nylon)...

Sounds like the dogs lost their bite aka teeth.

Mixing center spindle won't aggitate


Your agitator dogs are worn out.
Remove the agitator and replace the 4 little rubber dogs.
Snap the top off. Remove the bolt inside. Pull up on the top part and access the dogs.

Aggitator is lose small items (socks) fall down behind aggitator


When the wash plate is loose (can be lifted up and down) it means that your washer needs a u-joint kit. Yes, Whirlpool actually came out with an entire kit for this.

Tightening the bolts (actually there are 6 of them) won't fix your problem. The kit number is 285927. There's an instruction sheet included with it.

After you get the kit and are ready to install it, remove the white plastic dome by inserting a flat screwdriver into the 4 small slots (look closely and you'll see them) and lifting up at the same time.

*Beware... this is a MAJOR job. Be prepared to spend a long time on it. You'll need to lift the top panel, remove the balance ring, remove the wash plate, remove the drive block nut (<---sometimes requires a torch), etc... It may not be something you wanna jump into. Call an appliance repair outfit and ask them what they'd charge to install one if you ordered the part.
