Upper agitator assembly quit working

  • Customer: Joseph from Newnan, GA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

Removed cap from top of agitator, then used socket and extension to remove bolt which attaches agitator to shaft. There was soap residue accumulated on upper and lower agitator so I decided to remove that residue first. It took about 30 minutes to remove the soap residue with liquid detergent and a dishwashing sponge. Next replaced the agitator directional cogs per the video and installed the new washer on the bolt. After the lower agitator was back in place, the new thrust spacer was installed and lubricated with silicone grease, then the upper agitator assembly was re-installed per the vido. Put the cap back on the agitator and now the old Kenmore is running like new again. Before discarding your old washer, try to fix it. The new "energy saver" machines use as much water and run twice as long to do the same job. With the videos and troubleshooting aids provided by PartSelect you should find that most Whirlpool and Kenmore washers are not very hard to repair.

First I tried take the back off. Wrong move, wasted 30 mins on that. Then drained water into bucket, moved washer on hand truck to garage for more room to work. Had pump & drive coupling out in 20 mins. Found Partslect & ordered parts in 15 mins. Two days later had everything back working in 20 mins. Very Good Srevice.

The youtube explanation on how to repair was great, especially the instruction to lift up on the bluish plastic ring (to detach the softener dispenser), and not to tighten the bolt too much when reassembling matters.

top half of the 2-part agitator slipping (not turning) due to stripped teeth on these cogs.

  • Customer: Alan G. from Groves, TX

removed the softener dispenser, gently pried off the top with screw driver, loosen nut and lift off the unit holding the cogs. On our (Kenmore, series 90) there was a small retaining ring to hold the cogs in place. Removed retaining ring (no tools), and cogs (one at a time). Replace each old cog with the new one, being careful that it's not upside down or backwards. reassemble. test. rejoice! This $3 part plus $7 S&H - saved a $100 house call from the appliance repair man.. YouTube & PartSelect = super Combo! Thanks!

Just like it said on YouTube. I am going to order a set of dog for back up.

The tub would not spin during the spin cycle. I diagnosed that the door switch was functioning. And through some reading on the internet, found out it was the motor coupling. I replaced the clutch assembly strictly as preventative maintenance.

I am not even going to attempt to explain. The videos that were brand specific are all anyone needs to complete any repair. They are very well made. And easy to follow. Thank you for saving me a repair call!

Parts select gives you the top solutions for the problem you are having. This suggested a clutch, and upon looking at mine I could see it was displaced. I watched the instructional video, and it was spot on. It told me how to from beginning to end and it worked out perfectly. I spent about an hour of my time, spent $38, and my machine is fixed. Thank you Parts select for the free video, I couldn't have done it without it.

You fist unplug power and water and drain hoses. Remove agitator and lay machine on its back. Remove clips and water pump. You then remove clips and motor from tranny. Remove 3 bolts holding tranny and pull it and shaft from the machine exposing the brake assy. R&R assembly and reverse what you've done and you're done. machine worked like new. Always buy genuine parts they fit and work. Bob

top agitator not working

  • Customer: C from Little Egg Harbor, NJ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

The top agitator was not working. The top of the agitator should only work in one direction. Since it wasn't, the pawls (cogs) on the top agitator were worn. In order to repair, you need to take the top of the agitator off. Remove the fabric softener container from the top of the agitator. It should pull off. Then, remove the clear plastic cover. (clear plastic cover will have an 'o' ring on it.) Below the cover will be a 7/16" bolt holding the agitator to the washer shaft. Pull the entire agitator from the stainless steel shaft. You will need to separate the top of the agitator from the bottom of the agitator. It is necessary to separately order and replace the thrust spacer, grease, and bolt. All the other necessary parts are in the Agitator repair kit which is also necessary when ordering parts. The agitator repair kit will come with a diagram for assembly, otherwise reassembly is the opposite of disassembly. It took longer to write this installation instructions than it was to do the actual repairs.

Top agitator stopped working, teeth needed to be replaced.

Followed instructions supplied plus use of u-tube video. The job could have been done in less time if I had a long ratchet to begin with. Fairly easy job for a woman to do.

Pry open the back enough to remove electrical connections from Water Inlet Valve. Remove machine screw with nut-driver that holds Water Inlet Valve and slide valve out.

Washer would not drain

  • Customer: Norman from Galloway, NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

The repair on this model did not require disconnecting the water supply or drain hoses as suggested in the video presentation because it didn't have to be tipped over. Just unscrew and tip over the control panel and remove the cabinet. The lid switch and water pump are then easily accessible. The lid switch was clearly broken by visual inspection. In a model this old replacing the pump at this cost is advisable, especially since it is easy accessible. Easy job. Machine now works fine.

Replace leaking water pump

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The repair video was very helpful and exactly right. The most difficult task was removing the old pump. It had apparently seeping between the motor shaft and the pump coupler for some time and had rusted the pump to the motor shaft. I had to aggressively grip the pump housing with the channel lock pliers and wrench it back and forth to break it loose. I took a file to remove the rust build up from the motor shaft before installing the new pump. Washer works fine.
