110.23032102 shows as a kenmore model number. I couldn't find a matching part number, so we'll work off the assumption that it is the model number. That being the case, if just the top portion of the agitator does not work, you are likely looking at and agitator dog problem. Yes, it's a silly name for the part, but that is what it says right on the manufactures replacement part. While you are in there, I would also recommend replacing your thrust spacer as well as they get brittle over time. So, once you have part numbers 80040 (agitator dogs) and 8055228 (thrust spacer), here's how to swap them out. First remove your fabric softner dispenser. It should have a blueish/ green ring around it. The ring locks it in place. Lift the ring and the dispenser will lift off. Next, as you look down under where the dispenser was, you will see clear plastic with a black rubber ring around it. There are 2 tabs sticking out of the top of it, just grab these (needle nose pliers would make it easier) and pull it up. Under that you will find a bolt (7/16" if I remember correctly) Remove the bolt and the whole agitator can lift out now. If only the top half comes off, don't worry about it. the bottom half can stay without a problem. As a matter of fact, the thrust spacer sits between the 2 halves. Now, the area where the bolt came out is a seperate piece. It may or may not be held in by two white plastic tabs at the bottom. If it is, just work the tabs off with a small flat head screwdriver. Once this piece is seperated, you will now see your agitator dogs. There is a ring holding them on from the bottom. Slide the ring off and replace all 4 dogs. Wipe any extra fabric softner and shavings from the previous dogs out. Re-assemble in reverse. .

You will need a set of agitator dogs. Pull off your agitator cap and look under it, you will see 4(four)small tabs that catch and release the top 1/2 of the agitator.

Pry the agitator top off with a screwdriver (in the little slot provided)and remove the part with a 7/16" socket. Lift out the top part of the agitator and replace the four plastic dogs with parts from RepairClinic.com http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-110.82870820-%3d%3dc201 for $4.95 plus shipping.
I am replacing mine for the second time in 18 years. John

The following link explains how to disassemble the agitator to access the cam components:
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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info and especially the link on disassembly. "
Tips for a great answer:
2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off - many Whirlpool machines use this inner cap, with a handle, to gain access to the center bolt
3) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator (earlier models used a 7/16" hex-head steel bolt)
On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire assembly out of the washer. (Some recent models allow just the top portion's removal to access these 'dogs')
5) Older models - place the agitator on the floor, and, standing carefully on the bottom portion, pull the top half off. Turn it over, and the dogs will be accessible for replacement.
6) Newer model dogs can be replaced once just the ratchet ***'y is removed. There are several versions currently in use, but most can be replaced without removing the bottom agitator half. All '4-dog' versions use the 285770 (or #80040) kit, regardless of the cam ***'y style. (Really old agitators, rarely seen now, used a pair of 2 larger dogs, which are a different part number)
7) On older versions, be careful to align the two tabs when inserting the upper ***'y back onto the agitator bottom half. When these are aligned, they will friction-fit the two halves together, making it easier to reinstall the ***'y. Handle it only by the bottom half to prevent pulling the top half off when reinstalling.
8) Lightly lubricate the agitator cap's rubber gasket using a bit of dishwasher detergent, and push it back into place. (On the Whirlpools with an inner cap, lube that cap's o-ring too - makes it easier to snap into place)
