Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Kenmore 80 Series does not agitate.

Washing machine goes through the whole cycle and then spins, except the agitator does not agitate at all. Any ideas on how to fix it. I have a Kenmore 80 series, but not sure where to find the serial number?

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

The model and serial number tag will be under the lid at the back of the "lip/shroud" as you look from the front.

Based on your description, the problem is likely worn agitator dogs/gears. The new dogs alone part # 80040 or what I'd recommend, part # 285751 as a kit with new hub too. These are common and availble at most brick & mortar parts depot's as well as on-line vendor's.

You`ll need to remove the top of the agitator to replace them.

To remove the top cover of the agitator, it should lift off by prying up gently with a flat screwdriver or puddy knife.

Under this cap there actually is a screw/fastener,( bolt ) it just may or may not look anything like a typical screw. It could be a plastic piece with a square center and with the aid of a large flat screwdriver inserted in this location pressed into one of the corner`s in the square center (as to hold it still or turn it, I usually hold it still while turning the agitator) at the same time as holding the bottom of the agitator, turn it counter-clockwise and it will come loose. It may be the bolt style and in that case just remove the bolt and lift it out.


On Kenmore full size washer`s built by whirlpool there are one 2 types, ones with a 7/16" bolt holding it in place, and the type I described.


Thank`s for visiting FixYa. Good luck and let me know if I can assist you further.

Kenmore 80 Series 110.27802690 agitator barely moving


It's the transmission that's bad. The motor turns one direction to spin and the opposite direction to agitate. The transmission converts the constant belt speed from the motor into the back and forth motion. In the other direction, the transmission stops and the whole system spins.
(I don't suspect you have it set to "delicates")

Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

I just replaced the transmission on my Kenmore 80. No agitation


your motor turns one way for the spin cycle and the other way for agitate. remove the coupler and test it that way.
