Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

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.

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.

Agitator does NOT spin along w/ drum during spin cycle


If this is the old style that uses a belt, it is not worth fixing. But the problem sounds like the wig-wam is not functioning properly. Most of the time it was a wire broken since it moves back and forth constantly.

How do we fix a washing machine that does not spin?


Is it agitating? If so you may have a bad lid switch if it's not spinning or agitating you may have a bad drive coupler.
