Model 11020922990 Kenmore Three speed is tearing shirts. Sear is no help at all. All they want to do is send a $75 service call or sell a warrenty. I just need an answer to the question, Why are my shirts being ripped up. The owners manual has some suggestion none of which fit this situation.
If I have to rely on Sear a rock at stream side sould like a better solution!

SOURCE: Removing Agitator from Kenmore Model 110 Top Loader

How to replace Whirlpool/Kenmore washer
dual action agitator ratchet ‘dogs’, kit # 285770
Tools needed: Screwdriver, 3/8" drive ratchet wrench, 7/16" socket (older models), 3/8" drive to 1/2" adapter (newer models), long 3/8" drive extension, small amt liquid detergent
1) Pry the agitator cap off by inserting a screwdriver into the cap’s notch
2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off – most 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)
(Recent models use a 1/2" square drive plastic nut – use a 3/8" X 1/2" ratchet adapter)

4) On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire ***’y off.
(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 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 kit, regardless of the cam ***’y style. (Older 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)
9) Reach around and pat yourself on the back! You just saved at least $75.00!

SOURCE: cant remove agitator. Fabric softener cap is off but i do not see a screw or bolt to remove the assembly. agitator is only weakly working

There should be a 7/16 bolt in the bottom of the cup once you have taken the cup out. Its kinda deep you would need a longer extension. Also this agitator bolt usually has a gasket material attached to it and it may be covered by another cap.

SOURCE: kenmore model#11023822100 does not have a bolt to

this isi a whirpool machine, however kenmore might change the agitator shaft slightly, sometimes there is a "nut" holding the 2 halves of ajitator together, tis can be loosened by using a 1/2" extension drive. this should release the 2 pieces. its defintly between the 2 halves, you may need to really pull it apart... itll go

Model ge whdrr418g, i need to remove the agitator. the fabric softener cup lifts off fine, but underneath is a smooth plastic area... every manual says to access the screw/bolt at the bottom of the center...

You need to grab the agitator from the bottom( fingers under agitator in the tub) then kind of alternate puling up with your right and left hands.. There is no screw holding your agitator in may seem like it doesn't want to let go at first but it will eventually..

Good luck

How do you remove the chuck from a dewalt 12 volt dw953 drill

Open the chuck wide open. In the center is a retaining screw, they usually have left hand threads. Remove the screw. Take an allen wrench 1/4" to 3/8" in size and fasten the short side tightly in the chuck. The chucks are usually right hand thread, so take a small hammer and strike the allen wrench to turn the chuck to the left to loosen it.

How do you remove a key chuck

Open the jaws all the way.

Peer inside, find the flat blate screw head. THIS SCREW IS LEFT HAND THREAD - NOT STANDARD RIGHT HAND THREAD.

Put your drill into a vice and snug it down gently. Put a flat blade screw driver bit into the slot. Tap the screw driver with a mallet several times. Try turning the screw driver as you tap gently. Once it breaks free, remove as usual.

With the locking screw out, put your key into the chuck and tap tthe key it to loosen the chuck. The chuck should be held onto the shaft with right hand threads ... some are different. Try each direction, gently, until you break it free.

I hope this helps you

Thanks for your question

How to remove the keyless chuck from a hitachi dv18dl?

The screw mentioned in solution number one is a left hand thread once you have removed it use an allen hey in the hole the screw came out of as if undoing a normal right hand thread a scarp blow with a hammer may be neccesary. then do the opposite when installing new chuck

Need to remove the chuck on my 3/8 milwaukee drill. I opened the chuck and removed the screw in the bottom but can't get it off. does it pry off or unscrew? right or left hand screw???

if this is a cordless drill please review the tip section, if not the spindle has a hex that you can put a thin wrench on and the threads are standard meaning you would use a chuck key or allen wrench to hit it in the counter clockwise position to remove it. Let me know if you have any problems

Drill chuck removal

The screw should be left hand thread and the chuck is normal thread. The 'workshop' way to remove the chuck is to remove the screw (done). If the jaws are still working then clamp a sturdy allen key in it and whack it against a workbench to unscrew the chuck. If holding the drill in the normal position you would stand with the workbench to your left and whack it down on that. If the jaws aren't working then you can grip the body in a vice and use large pipe grips or stiltsons on the chuck. Also check to see if the chuck spindle will accept a thin spanner to hold it, as this is a slightly more caring way to brace the spindle. Then you can can hold the spanner in the vice and use the allen key in the chuck and unscrew it that way.

Dewalt dc920 repair instructions chuck

To remove the chuck on your drill follow the instructions for the type of drill chuck you have:
Instructions for removing a keyed chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw place the chuck key, with the chuck facing toward you, into one of the holes on the right side of the chuck. Strike the key in a clockwise direction with a wooden mallet or similar object. This will loosen the screw inside the chuck.
2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
There is no way to stop the motor from turning.
