Kenmore Wahing machine model #23922 won't agitate or spin


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Kenmore), an no agitation/spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3965207-whirlpool_top_loader_no_spin_problem

I have included parts sources and instructions on how to replace any parts as well.

If this just a simple matter of the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.


Last of all, the most expensive problem that can occur, is a failed gearcase (transmission). The gearcase averages between $80 and $160 to purchase. If you wish to replace the part yourself, it is not that difficult. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576575-replacing_a_gearcase_on_whirlpool_manufa

The procedure is rather lengthy, but not as difficult as you would think. It can save you a lot in labor charges.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.


NOTE: I would recommend you check your agitator to ensure it is tight, followed by a check of the motor coupling. A tell-tale sign of a broken motor coupling is to look for black dust or broken plastic pieces under the wash tub. To make sure, disassembly to view the coupling if recommended. If you replace the gearcase, replace the motor coupling as well.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

The agitator is loose and "clunks" as it is washing. How to fix?


You may have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, or a loose agitator bolt.

Whirlpool uses a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by either worn agitator dogs, a worn agitator cam assembly, or a loose agitator bolt. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to access and/or replace them. It also explains how to access the bolt and tighten (if necessary):

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number for the dogs are included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs for about $11 or $12.

NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

If you aren't sure, or have additional questions about this repair, please post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub opening under the lid) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the plastic, or restrict the agitator movement. Tighten until snug only.

How do i disassemble the top part of the agitator on a washing machine? it seems the top part of the agitator is not spinning like it should.ile


Whirlpool washers are equipped with a split type agitator. The top is called the "auger", the bottom is the agitator. To disassemble, 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.

If you have further questions, or need additional assistance please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Agitator top not moving, but bottom is


The problem you are experiencing comes from worn agitator dogs located in the agitator cam assembly. The following link explains how to disassemble the agitator to access the cam components:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

In most cases, the small cam "teeth", called "dogs" wear out due to normal wear and tear and require replacement. I have included the part number in the link provided. Replacements can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. If you need an illustration to assist you, searspartsdirect.com has some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can use for reference.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Agitator came apart


Poor grandma, I guess we need to try to get this washer fixed for her. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the your model number as "ATW4470TQ0", there's an excellent exploded view diagram under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading. It sounds like the agitator bolt (item 3) came loose and the whole assembly popped off. This should be a simple fix for you. I hope you are able to resolve your problem by reviewing the illustration. If not, please let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

PS DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause cracks in the agitator and spin problems. Just tighten until it is "snug".

My agitator will not agitate during the cycles. How do I disassemble the top section from the bottom section?


It sounds like you need to replace your agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. The following link explains how to disassemble the agitator and how to replace the dogs:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

In some locations, the manufacturer may refer to the dogs by a different name, but the part number should still be the same. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair job. Let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.
