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.


The diagrams should give you a good idea of how the agitator and clips connect.

The agitator works well during the wash cycle. When the drum spins, the agitator will not if the clothes touch the agitator. The water empties, but the agitator prevents the drum from spinning.

Also see the Whirlpool Parts list for their Commercial washers, although the consumer models use the same transmission.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf


Basically whats happening is this.

When the washer goes into spin mode two plastic cams are forced together and raise a gear on the main agitator shaft that is supposed to keep the agitators from spinning. If the cams are worn (not necessarily broken) the gear doesn't lift high enough to completely disengage the agitators. We had the same problem. Ours was a major gear noise but a clicking could also be a symptom as well as the agitator keeping the drum from spinning. A set of Whirlpool Agitate Cams (part number 62580/01) cost about $15.00.

It's a bit messy to fix (15 oz. of 80-90 weight gear oil in the transmission available at auto parts stores) but very inexpensive.

See the following for how to remove the transmission.

In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators.

The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt. A 1/2" socket extension works well.

You don't have to remove the drum.

You can also see this site for removing the transmission.


ILLUSTRATED DESCRIPTION OF REMOVING CABINET THRU TRANSMISSION.

Lay the machine down (after disconnecting power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside, remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission. Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft, remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 15 Oz of 80-90 weight gear oil. (Available at auto parts stores)


Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

I'd also check the Motor Coupler (a $15.00 item that tends to wear) while you have the transmission out.


The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

My Kenmore 80Series washing machine is turning clothes but not agitating. The clothes keep getting wrapped around the agitator with some of the clothes not even getting wet.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110+82682810

It sounds as if one of the components in the transmission has gone bad.

NOTE!!! It's not nearly as bad as it sounds.

See the following PDF on how the transmissions for these washers work.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2550f737b3129b0c85256b0600504738/$FILE/787772%20%234.pdf


Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=2e472099eea9ee340989120524f72cf9


You'll see that when going into agitate mode a Connecting Rack engages a Spin Gear on the main drive shaft to turn the agitators back and forth.

It's possible that the Connecting Rack has become damaged.

The first thing I'd do is to pull the transmission and carefully take a look.

It sounds daunting but the Whirlpool price for a rack is only $35.80 vs. $170 for a transmission.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission.

NOTE: You don't have to remove the tub so don't worry about the Spanner Nut and Drive Block..

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=2e472099eea9ee340989120524f72cf9

Lay the machine down (after disconnecting power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside, remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission. Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft, remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 14 - 15Oz of oil, remove the clip holding the main spin gear on and check the Agitate Gear, Main Drive Gear, Connecting Rack etc against the illustrations in the Whirlpool PDF documents for the damaged one.

Once you've determined which part is damaged, go to the Whirlpool Parts Site and enter the number from the document/parts list of the part that is damaged.

http://www.whirlpoolparts.ca/repair_parts.php

For example the Connecting Rack Part # 3349296 is replaced by part # 8546456 and has a MSRP of $38.50.

It is a messy job that only requires basic tools, socket set up to a 1/2", Vice Grips and or pliers and patience..

When we had a problem with ours, replacing the Agitate gear and Neutral Drain Assembly cost a total of less than $30 including 80-90 weight gear oil vs. $170 for a transmission.

I have a Kenmore washer that has trouble agitating. I took off the cap on the agitator and tightened the bolt that goes into the agitator. This fixes the problem for a while. Pretty soon the agitator...


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.

There are two "bolts" for the agitators (assuming that you have the basic split system) The bottom agitator turns back and forth and the top section only turns one way.

The top section (when you remove the cap) usually has a plastic 1/2" square drive bolt.

If you remove the bolt and top section of the agitator, you should see a second 5/16" stud. under the stud is a rubber washer.

The first thing I'd do is pull both parts of the agitator and look at the splines inside of the lower agitator and the splines on the transmission agitator shaft. If either of them is worn / broken, your washer won't agitate. Also make sure that the two pronged "washer" is in place on the transmission agitator shaft and that the clip that holds it in place is fit.

If the splines are OK, I'd carefully put the lower agitator back on. Check the condition of the rubber washer on the stud. Install the stud and do not over-tighten.

Put the top agitator on tighten the 1/2" bolt carefully. Don't over-tighten.

Beyond that, you may be looking at a clutch or transmission problem.

Bottom part of agitator does not work, i replaced the clutch dogs two weeks ago for the top part. kenmore series 80


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.

There are a number of Series 80 design washers. You'll need the actual model number to better check for the problem.

First, I'd remove the top agitator (as you've already done), then I'd remove the main agitator.

Under it you will see a clip and what Whirlpool calls a "washer". The "washer has two prongs, one fits into the main agitator shaft drive and the other fits in the lower agitator. If one or the other of the prongs is broken, the agitator most likely wont. I'd also look inside the main agitator to see if the ridges are broken off.

I'd then start the washer on it's smallest cycle and see if the main agitator shaft turns back and forth. If it doesn't and the washer goes through it's drain and spin cycles, the problem is likely in the transmission itself with what they call the agitate gear and / or agitate cams.

Please see the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDF document on installation, maintenance and operation of direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6?OpenView&Start=1

This is a Whirlpool document with parts lists for their commercial washers (basically the same as the consumer models)

If the problem is in the transmission, although it looks complicated, it really isn't that bad if you have a moderate level of mechanical ability.

Whirlpool Washer stopped agitating and spinning


the most common problem after a large load is the motor coupling has broke. it is what connects the motor to the transmission. it is not hard to replace if you can get the cabinet off the unit. you have to take the control panel loose and "hinge" it back to get access to the clips that hold the cabinet on to the frame. once you remove the cabinet, then take off the pump clips, the motor clips and then the motor. that will allow you to get to the coupling and replace with a new one. sounds easy but its not for a first timer. good luck and hope you can find this of some help.

Hi there,

looks like the agitator dogs are broken. these are the pieces between the bearing and the top of the agitator. since this agitator is a 2 piece, you can just replace the dogs.

go to www.whirlpoolparts.ca and put in your model #. it will give you a parts breakdown.

hope this helps.
