You Doggets are worn out. There is four tear drop peices in yoiur agitator the only cost a few dollars and you can put them in yourself. Take the top off your agitator you may have to use a small screwdriver there is a slot on one side 1/2'' from the top looj down in there. you have to remove a cap in there it has a handle on it. Once you remove that you can see the doggests you will need a 7/16 in socket wrench to remove the center bolt. Pull the intire agitator. There is two clips in the in the centeryou hav to remove. putting it backyou will have to hold it upside down to keep the parts together.

My washer works fine just no agition goes though cylces just fine fills and drians fine but agitator does not move


80040 dog kit is all you need. The upper portion of the agitator has four dogs mounted inside. As the transmission moves the agitator back and forth these dogs catch the side of the upper agitator. This rotates the fins and makes the clothes tumble on top of each other forcing them into a downward motion. When the facing of the agitator dogs wear smooth the upper agitator will cease to function.

I have a ge washer model # wcsr2080b2ww. it won't agitate. it will spin though


The agitator is held in place by about a dozen L-shaped clips in a ring around the agitator's base that will release more as you pull harder on the agitator.) Everything from the base below the large fins on up comes out together. Grab the shaft above the fins and pull slowly and hard.
Thanks

Agitator free spins, will not engage, sounds like a gear is stripped. How do I remove agitator


At the top of the agitator there is a seperation of the agitator and the very top of the agitator. If you hold the fins of the agitator and attempt to unscrew the very top of the agitator this should come loose allowing you access to pull the rest of the agitator out
Hope this helped

It knocks on spin cycle


The tub may be off balance.
Servicing the Tub and Agitator

Replace a damaged agitator
with a new one of the same type.
Unscrew the cap on top of the
agitator and pull straight up;
the agitator should lift off.

The washing machine tub, or basket, generally doesn't cause problems. However, at times it may cause damage to the laundry, make a lot of noise, vibrate, or stop completely.

If laundry is torn during the wash cycle, feel around the tub. If you find a rough spot, you may be able to smooth it with an emery board. Sand the spot lightly. If this doesn't work -- or if you have to cut to bare metal to remove the roughness -- the tub should be replaced. In this case, it's probably much wiser to replace the entire washer.

The agitator -- the finned part that fits on the tub shaft -- can also tear laundry if the fins are cracked or broken. You may be able to solve the problem temporarily by pinching off the splinters with pliers and lightly filing the plastic smooth, but this is just a stopgap measure; the agitator should be replaced. Replace a damaged agitator with a new one of the same type. To do this, unscrew the cap on top of the agitator. With the cap off, pull straight up on the agitator; it should lift off. If it doesn't move, rap its side with a hammer. If it still won't lift off, drive wedges under the bottom rim of the agitator to dislodge it. Then set the new agitator into place and replace the agitator cap.

Damage to the snubber, a padlike device sometimes located under the agitator cap, can cause the machine to vibrate excessively. The snubber may have a suspension spring in it. Lift off the agitator cap and examine the snubber. If the spring is broken, or if the pad is visibly worn, replace the entire snubber. Snubbers might also be found at the splash guard at the top of the tub, under the transmission, or as part of the water pump housing. Look around until you see it.

If the machine doesn't have a snubber, listen for noise at the suspension unit between the tub and the machine cabinet. The suspension unit has fins or pads that may need replacement. In some cases, the entire unit may have to be replaced. Another noise point is the basket support nut. Tighten the nut or, if you can't tighten it, replace it.

Sudden tub stops can be caused by a broken motor belt, but they are usually due to poor tub loading. Check to see if wet laundry is wadded around the bottom of the tub shaft, or under the basket or agitator assembly. Remove the basket or agitator in order to remove the laundry easily.

Machine won't spin or agitate


Jumptrout51 answered befro I posted and I believe him to be correct, it makes the most sence to me. A drive coupling has to attach the motor to the transmission and pump to make agitate and spin. You are most likely hearing just the motor but its not attached to anything like it should be. On older machines this is the equalivant of a broken belt.

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.


Im not very familiar with that type of top loadign washer,,, but on most agitators there is a bolt that runs down the center of the agitator, connecting it to the transmission/gearbox. Usually there is a cap, or softner dispenser that can be pulled off, revealing this bolt.

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.

Kenmore 90 series washer


most likely the agitator dogs are bad. if the agitator engages clockwise and free spins counter clockwise they are good, if it slips they are bad. remove the bolt in the center of the agitator, take off cap or dispenser and remove the inner cap first. pull out the agitator, put on the floor, stand on the base of the agitator and pull up on the upper part to separate, take out the dog holder and replace dogs. Most appliance repair shops should have part on hand for about 5-6 dollars. part number 80040-fsp.
