Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
If there is no dispenser, fabric softener will have to be added into wash basket.

SOURCE: Fabric softener doesn't dispense
Fabric softener dispensers are notorious for getting all gummed up and clogged. Remove the dispenser cup and soak in some hot water to dissolve all residue. While you have the dispenser removed check under the dispenser cap in the agitator for gummy residue as well. Clean with hot water. There should also be an agitator seal cap under the dispenser. Make sure the cap and rubber o-ring are seated properly. Last of all, if the dispenser has a cone shaped cup inside, make sure it is inserted cone-side UP. The cup is designed to allow fabric softener to roll down the sides of it, NOT hold it. I hope this helps.

There are gears inside the agitator that are very cheap and relatively easy to change they are called agitator dogs. Dont forget to rate my solution as solved if i answered your question accurately.....Thanks!!

There is a 1/4" machine screw in a recessed hole close to the bottom of the agitator. Remove screw. Lift agitator off agitate shaft.

IF the agitator is like the ones in the older models, it will just pull straight up and off of the transmission shaft.
Inside the agitator there is a rubber splined insert with an aluminum center. The soft aluminum strips out causing the grinding sound. Very common to happen.
We used to use a special puller to remove that part and then press a new one back in.
Voila! Repaired agitator!!
Most any appliance parts store should be able to look up your model # and tell you if that agitator can be resplined.

I just did it. All you do is pull up on the blue part -- put the fingers of both hands under the rim and pull. It isn't screwed or bolted on. If there's a lot of gunk built up, it's all the harder to pull up. Be prepared for some yucky stuff. It would be nice if that whole section would come out, since you have to clean the area below with Q-tips.
