The action of the agitator on my 5 year old Kenmore top
loader is not as enthusiastic as it used to be - noticably
slower on normal cycle. ie the clothes dont move as fast
in the water as they did.
Is this something easily repairable or time for a new front loader ?
I'm going to take a guess that your agitator has an auger at the top,
and while the lower part is moving fine, the auger isn't ratcheting as
it should, giving the impression that the whole thing isn't agitating
as vigorously as it should. Most Kenmore washers come with a parts
list so that you can see a parts breakdown of the area. If the auger
isn't ratcheting, then replace the agitator dogs and you will be up
and running just fine.
Thanks to all- its a direct drive and it seems that the agitator cam
and dogs are worn.( Probably from grossly overloading it with clothes)
The timer is also bad -have to jiggle it - total parts $89 plus S&H
time for which I wont get much thanks- so I'll suggest she buy a new
