Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Kenmore series 80 washer: the middle that turns has 2 parts, lower and upper. The upper section does not twist at all but the bottom section twists like it should.
Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a
ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it
in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced.
Remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.
Part number is 80040
