First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.23912100&pathTaken=partSearch

If you look at the section on the agitator, you should see a Plastic bolt that holds the agitators on

Also see the following for how to replace the Agitator Dogs, It has a good description of how to pull the top agitator.

Need to remove the tub on Kenmore Series 60 Washer to clean it. How do I get the agitator out?


To replace the Agitator & Dogs, follow these steps:


1.Remove the agitator center cap by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2.If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.
3.Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16" hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8" to ½" ratchet adapter to remove.
4.Remove the agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this repair much easier.
5.Place your hand over the top of the agitator and separate the upper portion of the agitator from the lower portion and turn the top half over in your hand. The agitator dog assembly will come out in your hand.
6.With the agitator dog assembly in your hand, lay the rest of the agitator aside. Pay careful attention to how the dogs are installed. Remove the worn dogs and reinstall new ones. It's that simple.
7.With all the dogs replaced and the assembly still in your hand, place the upper part of the agitator over the top of it, upside down, ensuring the inner assembly tabs align correctly.
8.Now keep your hand over the agitator top to hold all the pieces together and turn the entire assembly over (upright position).
9.Carefully align and reinsert the upper portion of the agitator to the lower portion. Again, making sure the two pieces align correctly.
10.Place the entire agitator assembly back on the gearcase shaft and reinstall center nut. NOTE: DO NOT over tighten the nut, or the agitator will not spin correctly. Just make the nut snug. Reinstall center cap and inner cap (if equipped).

These instructions should give you the basics on how to perform this repair. Since there are various agitator types in use by Whirlpool and Kenmore, assembly can vary.

Top half of agitator not working seems the drive lugs have broken have taken it apart need to find where to get the parts from???


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured top loader (such as Kenmore, Estate, and Roper) they use a split-agitator design like you've described. In most cases, agitator slippage is caused by worn agitator dogs, or a worn cam assembly. You can access these components by following these steps:


1. Remove the agitator center cap or softener dispenser by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.

2. If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.

3. Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16 inch hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8 inch to ½ inch ratchet adapter to remove.

4. Remove the lower portion of the agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make any repairs much easier.

5. Place your hand over the top of the agitator and separate the upper portion (auger) of the agitator from the lower portion and turn the top half over in your hand. The agitator cam assembly will come out in your hand.

6. With the cam assembly in your hand, pay careful attention to how everything is assembled. The cam asembly and associated parts usually wear with age and will cause the agitator to slip. If any of the cam assmebly parts appear worn, now is a good time to replace them. The entire assembly is usually sold as a kit for $20 or less.

7. When reassembling the agitator, carefully align and reinsert the upper portion of the agitator to the lower portion. Make sure the two pieces align correctly. If equipped with an inner cap, make sure it seats and seals properly. This provides an air gap to prevent water from rising in the agitator shaft and getting inside the transmission.

8. Place the entire agitator assembly back on the gearcase shaft and reinstall center nut. NOTE: DO NOT over tighten the nut, or the agitator will not spin correctly. Just make the nut snug. Reinstall center cap and inner cap (if equipped).

If any replacement parts are required, they can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

It is often more cost effective to purchase the entire cam replacement kit as opposed to purchasing individual parts. The kit usually includes the agitator dogs, cam, cam thrust bearing and replacements washers/seals (depends on the model number). The agitator cam assembly should be listed under the agitator parts listing. If you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

How do I remove the agitator from my Kenmore Washer model number 110.24962300 to clean under it as clothes are coming out with flakes of dirt and soap-scum pieces etc. on them?


Follow these detailed step-by-step instructions to help you locate and replace your Kenmore worn agitator cogs:
  1. Before you begin this or any other repair, disconnect the power supply to your washing machine. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, trip the appropriate switch in your fuse panel, or remove the correct fuse from your home's fuse box.
  2. Raise the lid of your washing machine, and if your model uses a fabric softener dispenser, remove it from the top of the agitator by pulling it straight up and off.
  3. Pry off the agitator's cap (if there is one) by wedging a small flat head screwdriver into the slot between the agitator and the cap.
  4. Reach into the agitator top and pull up on the barrier cap and its seal (also called a gasket) to remove them.
  5. Use a socket wrench with an extension or a nut driver to remove the stud and the seal that hold the agitator top to the shaft of the agitator base.
  6. Remove the agitator top by pulling it up off the agitator base. Turn the agitator top over, enabling the cam and the worn directional cogs to slide out. Examine the cam for wear, it also may need replacing.
  7. Attach each of the new directional cogs to the cam. The small round piece at the base of each 'ear' is fitted into one of the cam's four slots. Your model may or may not make use of a black plastic agitator cam bearing. This cam bearing is used to help hold the cogs in place. If your model uses one, make sure you put it back on during the reassembly process.
  8. Carefully insert the cam and new directional cogs into the agitator top the same way they came out. Place the agitator top over the agitator base. There are tabs on the top of the agitator base that line up with, and fit into, the slots of the cam.
  9. If the cogs fall out of place during re-assembly, you will have to take the cam out of the agitator top again and re-insert the cogs.
  10. Push down on the cam until its slots and the base's tabs snap together.
  11. Insert the stud and seal into the shaft and use your wrench or nut driver to tighten.
  12. Make sure the black rubber gasket (seal) is situated properly in the groove of the barrier cap. Then push the barrier cap and seal down into the agitator past the holes.
  13. Replace the agitator's cap or fabric dispenser, whichever your model uses.
  14. Close the lid of your washing machine. Reconnect the power supply and test the machine to make sure it is working properly.
That should do the job for You. Hope this was helpful

The bottom part of the agitator will turn, but not the top part


The agitator has two parts. One is the bottom agitator and then you have the top agitator that moves the clothes around. If the top part of the agitator is not moving. You probably need to replace the dog ears. Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid. -- click on this link directly to get the detailed instruction for replacing dog ear
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsdesk_id=136
to remove the whole agitator check out the instructions as follows:
(1) Kenmore washer..... Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a bolt and remove the bolt, lift up on the agitator...picture1, picture2.
(2) Kenmore washer.....Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bold will have a square in the middle that the square end of the shaft of an socket extension ( or a very large flat screw driver ) will fit into the square hole to unscrew the plastic nut off...remove the upper 1/2 of the agitator....remove thebolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator. also you can get the exact required parts from www.repairclinic.com
This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Dual action kenmore 70 series washer need to remove agitator


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.


It sounds as if your "Agitator Dogs" are damaged or broken. These are plastic pieces that allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

Please see the following for how to access and replace them if necessary.


http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=39649e541343127154c647348d1156d9

Basically,

1. Remove the fabric softener dispenser.

2. Using a short flat blade screwdriver, remove the cap.

3. You may see a 1/2" square plastic nut.

I've used a 1/2" extension for a socket set to remove the nut.

4. Pull the top agitator off and turn it over carefully.

You should see the agitator dogs (per the illustrations).

Replace them if necessary and re-mount the agitator, tighten the bolt carefully, put the cap and fabric softener dispenser back on and the top part of the agitator should only turn one way.

Agitator dogs worn


Ok, here is how ya do it. Remove the protective cap on top of the agitator (remove softener dispensor if optioned). Down in the hole you will see a plastic cap with a square fitting built in to it. Take a 1/2 extension and stick it in the hole. Unscrew the entire plastic button, then the spring. You can now remove the top and replace the dogs. A long pair of needle nose pliers can also unscrew that cap if its not to tight.

Top agitator on model 110.27812690 washer slipping


The following advice is for replacing the “Agitator Dogs” on Kenmore and Whirlpool TOP LOADER style washing machines. This simple repair can save you a fortune in repair costs as the replacement parts are very inexpensive at a cost of less than $10. The replacement kit part number is 80040. You can order on line at various appliance parts websites, or use this part number and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer.

What are “Agitator Dogs”? These are small plastic pieces (usually 4) that are located under the agitator center cap that grip the agitator and turn it during the wash cycle. They can (and do) wear out dependent upon the use of the washer. If you are in the habit of doing large load sizes frequently, or wash large items such blankets or afghans, this can wear the teeth off and reduce the life of the agitator dogs.

SYMPTOMS REQURING REPLACEMENT: The agitator fails to turn during the wash cycle, or will not turn with a heavy load. The timer will run normally through all cycles, and you will be able to hear the gearcase (transmission) engage and run. The washer will also drain normally. The only indication that something is wrong will be the agitator slipping or not turning at all. The result will be clothes that do not wash properly and will sit on the bottom of the wash tub.

To replace the Agitator Dogs, follow these steps:


1.Remove the agitator center cap by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2.If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.
3.Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16” hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8” to ½” ratchet adapter to remove.
4.Remove the agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this repair much easier.
5.Place your hand over the top of the agitator and separate the upper portion of the agitator from the lower portion and turn the top half over in your hand. The agitator dog assembly will come out in your hand.
6.With the agitator dog assembly in your hand, lay the rest of the agitator aside. Pay careful attention to how the dogs are installed. Remove the worn dogs and reinstall new ones. It’s that simple.
7.With all the dogs replaced and the assembly still in your hand, place the upper part of the agitator over the top of it, upside down, ensuring the inner assembly tabs align correctly.
8.Now keep your hand over the agitator top to hold all the pieces together and turn the entire assembly over (upright position).
9.Carefully align and reinsert the upper portion of the agitator to the lower portion. Again, making sure the two pieces align correctly.
10.Place the entire agitator assembly back on the gearcase shaft and reinstall center nut. NOTE: DO NOT over tighten the nut, or the agitator will not spin correctly. Just make the nut snug. Reinstall center cap and inner cap (if equipped).

These instructions should give you the basics on how to perform this repair. Since there are various agitator types in use by Whirlpool and Kenmore, assembly can vary.

Removing Agitator from Kenmore Model 110 Top Loader


How to replace Whirlpool/Kenmore washer
dual action agitator ratchet ‘dogs’, kit # 285770
Tools needed: Screwdriver, 3/8" drive ratchet wrench, 7/16" socket (older models), 3/8" drive to 1/2" adapter (newer models), long 3/8" drive extension, small amt liquid detergent
1) Pry the agitator cap off by inserting a screwdriver into the cap’s notch
2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off – most Whirlpool machines use this inner cap, with a handle, to gain access to the center bolt
3) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator
(Earlier models used a 7/16" hex-head steel bolt)
(Recent models use a 1/2" square drive plastic nut – use a 3/8" X 1/2" ratchet adapter)

4) On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire ***’y off.
(Recent models allow just the top portion’s removal to access these ‘dogs’)
5) Older models – place the agitator on the floor, and, standing carefully on the bottom portion, pull the top half off. Turn it over, and the dogs will be accessible for replacement.
6) Newer model dogs can be replaced once the ratchet ***’y is removed. There are several versions currently in use, but most can be replaced without removing the bottom agitator half. All‘4-dog’versions use the 285770 kit, regardless of the cam ***’y style. (Older agitators, rarely seen now, used a pair of 2 larger dogs, which are a different part number)
7) On older versions, be careful to align the two tabs when inserting the upper ***’y back onto the agitator bottom half. When these are aligned, they will friction-fit the two halves together, making it easier to reinstall the ***’y. Handle it only by the bottom half to prevent pulling the top half off when reinstalling.
8) Lightly lubricate the agitator cap’s rubber gasket using a bit of dishwasher detergent, and push it back into place. (On the Whirlpools with an inner cap, lube that cap’s o-ring too – makes it easier to snap into place)
9) Reach around and pat yourself on the back! You just saved at least $75.00!
