Agitator problems I have a Kenmore series 90 top load washer and in the wash cycle the agitator intermittently makes a racheting/slipping sound for about two weeks now, everything else seems to be normal. Any suggestions... Thanks, Danny

Sounds like you have some bad adgetator dogs
they are plastic and they sit inside the white adgetator . take that off and you will see four of them. usually you need to remove the fabric dispenser first to take the bolt out of the adgetator out.

Sounds as if the transmission agitator pawl is slipping. inside the transmission is a gear connected to the agitator. there is a spring loaded pawl that rotates around the center and engages its pawl or hook into the agitator gear for each rotation. either the pawl hook is worn or the agitator gear is rounded off. the transmission must be opened up to see what is a miss

Kenmore 90 series top load washer: won't agitate or spin

Sorry to give you bad news but this sounds too much like the transmission is shot. It's a bit of work to change and probably some luck to find one at a reasonable price, so my advice is to ditch this machine and get another. :(

Kenmore 90 series with speed selector switch set to heavy duty cycle it works fine any other setting , regular , hand wash setting the agitator makes a loud clicking sound as it agitates

sounds like a transmition problem. does the noise happen when it goes into spin on the other settings? If no noise in the spin cycle on the other setting, then it sounds like a the gears in the transmition internally when bad for the agitation.
