    Hmm, what is the make and model. Can you attach a photo?

    Hello, I have this exact model but After I removed the dust cover there is a rubbery looking piece and no access to the agitator shaft bolt. I don’t know how to remove this rubber piece, it’s stuck! It looks like a square shape near where I would look at the shaft bolt and not big enough for a 7/16th socket. How do I remove this rubber piece??? Thank you!

Is this the same procedure for a Kenmore Model 110? This just started happening to mine today. HELP!!!

Thanks,

Michael,

yes, the Model 110 is the same as the series 80 I detailed in the repair.

good luck.

Brian Gill -

THANKS Brian Gill…

How hard is it to remove and replace the clutch?

MICHAEL LANGFORD - Ответить

Brian…this did not fix my problem. I’m afraid its a transmission and that is to much money to do a repair on a 29 year old washer. Thanks for you good instructions and photos though.

Mike

MICHAEL LANGFORD - Ответить

Thank you Brian for authoring this guide. All I can say is “ I did it!!!” The ratcheting dogs cost me $7.00 , It took a bit of travel to pick them up, a visit to the neighbor to borrow the socket wrench. 7/16 was the exact size socket. I had a Kenmore 110 model ( although the Name of the washer says Kenmore 60 : why do they make life complicated??) I just needed to lift the top part of the agitator. With much gratitude and satisfaction, Louis

I’m having trouble removing the agitator cam. I have the center screw out the agitator will completely come out but the upper agitator won’t come off and the cam won’t come out. Suggestions? Thx.

Carol Friedman - Ответить

Sorry this is late… The cam should come out first and then the agitator should come off after. There shouldn’t be too much resistance lifting the agitator up and off. Just pull straight up off of shaft.

Brian Gill - Ответить

Brian, same issue, bolt loosened, top section came off but lower section or main agitator will not come off..as if another bolt holding it on and will not budge or come straight off..any suggestions, I am wondering if bolts lower section broke off?

I am having trouble getting the agitator bolt to loosen. It is spinning even when I hold the lower agitator. The bolt went through the bottom of the spring assembly. so the top agitator assembly is off. How can I loosen the bolt? I've sprayed with WD40, but that hasn't worked yet. Ken

What is spinning the bolt or lower agitator?

Brian Gill -

I can't get the agitator apart, not strong enough. Any ideas

Judy Evans - Ответить

On my unit.. also 80 series kenmore…. there is no 7/16 bolt…. instead I had to use a1/2” ratchet extension right into the square where the bolt should be….no problem!!!

Thought I’d seen a no spin problem attributed to the lid switch . Might be faulty and no spin but will wash.??
