My washing machine agitator is in two pieces. the bottom part agitates but the upper part just moves around with the clothes. Isn't it supposed to be agitating too? If so how do I fix?

** Kenmore 80 series washer **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number. If you post it we can look it up to see what appliance design you're dealing with.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** Isn't (upper part of the agitator) supposed to be agitating too? **

It turns only every other stroke of the lower portion. If it spins freely, there may be a problem with the agitator 'dogs' (see the following link) or the mating cam and related parts (if used on whatever washer model you have).

The model number is 110 25842400.

Thanks for the link to tell me where to look for the model#. I kept over looking it.

Yes that model uses agitator dogs between the two halves of the agitator. If just the top section of the agitator is not moving properly, they might be worn out and/or there might be a problem with their mating cam (see the links below).

Thank you so much for giving me the directions on fixing my washing machine! I have replaced the dogs and have a bolt on order because mine was rusted along with a seal to keep water from getting down in and rusting my bolt again! It is a wonderful feeling to repair something yourself! Thanks again!
