Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Heavy duty 80 series topload washer, model# 110.92380200, and the top section of the agitator does not rotate. The bottom turns, but the top does not. If you have any ideas on how I might fix this problem, I am sure my clothes will get much cleaner! Thank you, JW

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.

I have kenmore 80 series heavy duty/ super capacity plus washer that after it fills with water,hot or cold and it starts the wash cycle, I noticed that the agitator only moves once in awhile and stops


hum either a bad timer sticking the point contacts close. have u tried this in all cycles? and possibly a motor with bad windings not enough power to run agitation? try running in mild or gentle and see what happens? I was tempted to say the cam dogs in agitator but they dont work then stop then work, when they go out they go out.

Is there a belt on a kenmore ultra fabric care heavy duty 80 series


No. What is the problem you are having? Let me guess, it's not spinning or agitating?!
What is the model number listed under the lid?

The agitator is slipping on our Kenmore 80 series toploader. I'm not sure how to remove it.


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.

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

Assuming that only the top section of the agitator is "slipping, the problem points to the Agitator "Dogs"

See the following for how to replace them.

If it's not the "Dogs" see the following that has a section on how to remove the agitators and check the splines.

Series 80 Agitator top dosent work


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.


I assume that your model number starts with a 110 instead of 100.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.26842692

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.


Following is an illustrated description of the above.

Kenmore series 80 washer: does not twist in the middle


Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced.
Remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.
