The agitator itself is stripped or loose is one possibility. Take agitator off to see if it is damaged.

How do I remove spindle from washing bowl Model AWM270JW3062?


To remove the agitator you're going to need an extension for a socket. The size is 7/16. Remove the lid right on the tip of the agitator. There may be a plastic lid you will have to pull out of the middle. Hold the lower agitator while loosening the bolt turning your driver to the left. Be careful that part has agitator dogs in it and you don't want to lose them or your agitator wont work correctly.

Machine wont agitate


If the machine sounds like it is running OK. The agitator has lost its connection drive shaft because gear splines that connect it to the agitator have been damaged. You didn't really do anything wrong, this just happens occasionally. Hopefully yours has a sleeve that can be replaced rather than replacing the whole agitator.

It is tricky on some agitators, their may be a nut on the top of the agitator that holds or connects the agitator to a drive shaft. The top of the agitator probably has a plastic cap that covers this up and can usually be pried off to expose it. If there doesn't appear to be connection like this then the agitator may simply lift up. If you decide to try lifting the agitator up, let me know and I give you further guidance.

You might also call your local Appliance Supply store and with your make and model number, ask them if you unit has the sleeve or do you have to replace the agitator. I'll bet they will tell you.

Washer agitator wont turn!


what do you mean wont turn, do you mean when it spins that agitator is stationary ? in that case you need a new transmission. if you mean that in a dual action agitator that you can spin the agitator top left and right with no resistance / the bottom doesnt move either, then you will need new agitator dogs. remove the top of the agitator and i mean the cap, some have fabric softner dispensers on the top, which means pull the green tab up and the dispenser will come off, then you remove the cap to the agitator. under that is the agitator cam. you either need a 11mm socket to take it off, or you will need a 1/2 in ratchet and extension to take it off. after that it should be very easy to replace the agitator dogs

The Agitator is stripped and wont spin.


This is usually the agitator dogs have worn out or broke. These are very inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru checking and replacing the agitator dogs . You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

The top wont spin and the bottom will


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.

If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only

one way.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

See the part "Dog, agitator "

Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of

the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.

Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator

should turn in one direction only.

Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

Also see the following illustrated description of the above.

The top section of a two part agitator is designed to turn only one way. If the "agitator dogs" in it are worn, it wont agitate either way.

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.


If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.
