Kenmore 80 series washer


i happened to check my washer the other day. i saw the central agitator agitating, but the outer drum was stationary. I thought the outer drum should be moving in the opposite direction while washing. Am I right.

My ge wpsf4170 top load washer agitator spins but the drum itself stays stationary.

If the drum spins but the agitator doesn't agitate then its the dog(lil arm things) that grab the agitator ridges to work. If the drum doesn't spin at all its the belt under the drum. it's either broke the belt or has worn and slipped off or the drum was way off balance and kicked it off(belt) . way cheaper to fix either than buy new and most new ones have no agitator anymore so how does it clean better? In my opinion, they don't so I get the parts online at repair clinic and do it my self. Sorry Maytag Repair man. But I saved a lot

My washer makes a loud grinding noise when spin cycle is running. If I hold the agitator stationary while spin cycle is running drum will continue to spin and noise stops. I have already replaced the dog...

If dogs and coupling are replaced, then you will need to look at the transmisson, check the piece that holds drum on itself, this bearing can go bad. There is also a seal under the nut that holds on the air bell housing.
There is also a plastic hub that connects the agitator to the motor that can go worn.

Quite old admiral mega 22 plus topload washer. the machine did not agitate after filling up. I tried various points on the 3 cycle types and it did not spin either. My son tried moving the agitator and...

Yes sounds like you have now disturbed the seal and will need a new one, remove the agitator and inner drum to get at the seals, to remove the agitator pull off the softner cap and remove bolt form down inside.
To remove the inner drum, the top part of the washer needs to be hinged back to gain access, to do this insert a flat balde 4" from each side at the seam with the front panel to release the clips, lid will now hinge back to give access to the drums, on the outer dum there are clips all the way round to remove the top section of the outer drum release these. remove the bolts under agitator to remove the inner drum. you should have access to the seals but it has been a while.
Reason for not agitating in first place is probably the water level switch at the rear of the drum with a small 8mm hose connecting it to the drum.

I want to know how to remove the inner drum on my Samsung top loader to enable me to clean the outer drum.

you will need to remove the agitator by removing 1/4"hex screw at the bottom of agitator,then you need a "spanner wrench" to remove inner tub-basket hold-down nut then you can remove inner tub to clean outer tub

Both drum and agitator spin during wash cycle. Is this normal?

What is the age and model number of the washer? It could be as simple as a problem with a part inside the agitator or it could be a bad transmission. A complete model and serial number from the washer not the book.

If you mean the inner drum - remove the agitator, pull off the sofetener cup and remove the 15mm bolt down inside to remove agitator, then secure inner drum to center bearing.
If you mean the outer drum, check the holding down springs visually, remove the front panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then remove 2 small bolts to remove front panel.
Also check and replace drive belt, tilt machine backwards to gain access underneath.

Wheezing sound

The inside tub moves on the spin stage only and cause the water, by a centrifugal force, to be forced out of the clothes. During the wash cycle,the tub is stationary and the agitator moves forth and back. If you would like to remove the agitator - Remove the inner agitator cap (inside the top of the agitator) and then open the screw (be aware not to lose parts !) Good luck !
