Take the cap or fabric softener dispenser off the top of the agitator. under it should be a clear plastic cap with a little handle on it. take it out. under it should be a bolt (7/16) with a rubber seal under it, take it out and this will release the agitator and you will see the plastic dogs inside the agitator.

My washer works fine just no agition goes though cylces just fine fills and drians fine but agitator does not move


80040 dog kit is all you need. The upper portion of the agitator has four dogs mounted inside. As the transmission moves the agitator back and forth these dogs catch the side of the upper agitator. This rotates the fins and makes the clothes tumble on top of each other forcing them into a downward motion. When the facing of the agitator dogs wear smooth the upper agitator will cease to function.

Upper portion of Whirlpool agitator not turning


Your agitator dogs are worn out. Remove the agitator and seperate the upper section from the lower section. There are 4 small teardrop shaped pieces that are the agitator dogs. They have either come apart over time or at least the teeth have worn off them.
Post back with any questions. Please verify the model number. I couldn't pull up a parts list for it. I know the last digit should be a 0 (zero) instead of an o.
Thanks/Mike

Kenmore Series 80 Washer, Model 20852 - Agitator not turning well, making noise


Hi, If the washer spins properly but the agitator does not work, it could be the dog kit needs replaced. If the washer does not agitate or spin, it is probably the coupler.
Put the washer in wash cycle with no laundry in it and see if the lower prt of the agitator moves. If the agitator moves, try and hold the upper half of the agitator and see if it will only move one direction.The agitaor dog kit is designed to only let the top part of the agiator to grab one way. When they go bad, they can make some noise.
To replace the dog kit in the agitator, remove the top cap/rinse dispenser and the inner bolt cover. Remove the 7/16” bolt and lift the agitator out of the washer. Separate the 2 halfs of the agitator and replace the dog kit inside the upper part of the agitator.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Top part of agitator appears to becoming disconnected from bottom part. bottom is attached to motor and is working.


Hello Friend, Your problem is easily solved. You need to replace the agitator dogs. To replace all you have to do is pop the top cover off of agitator and remove bolt. Pull up on agitator and remove from washer. Next remove upper agitator from lower agitator. Inside the upper agitator top piece you will see a mechanism that has 4 little ratcheting teeth, these are called agitator dogs. Just replace them with new ones and re-install agitator. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Agitator is slipping when in wash mode.


Your agitator has a set of 4 dogs that propel the upper portion of the agitator. Over time the face on those dogs gets smooth and will not engage the inner walls of the upper agitator. The part number is 80040. Not very hard to repair. Get the top off and the seal so that you can access the nut holding the agitator in. Remove that nut and the agitator can be removed. Sit the agitator on the floor and hold it down with your feet. Grab the upper portion and snatch it away from the lower portion. Replace those dogs.

WHIRLPOOL MODEL LXR9445JQ0 WASHER. UPPER AGITATOR NOT WORKING VERY WELL, EXCEPT ON SMALL LOADS. LOWER AGITATOR WORKING ALL THE TIME. UPPER AGITATOR CAM BAD? HOW HARD TO REPLACE?


You need to replace the agitator dogs. Yes...there is such a thing. These are four small plastic pieces under the agitator cap that grip the upper agitator, preventing it from back spinning under a load. Searspartdirect.com has an excellent illustration of how your agitator is assembled. Just type in your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading. The dogs are listed as item 10 (part #80040). For a bit more you can order the entire upper cam replacment kit (which includes the dogs) as item 9 (285811). For instructions on how to replace, just follow this link:

This is an expensive and very simple repair. If you require addtional assistance, let me know. I hope this helps you.
