Many Kenmore appliance manuals are available from the Sears Parts Direct site: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/ . The manual page for the 110.21102011 washer is http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/11021102011-Kenmore-Parts-Washer-Parts-manual?searchTerm= if you want to read it in your browser. (A PDF plugin is needed.) The direct link to the manual is http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/1009787L.pdf if you want to read the document in your PDF reader software.

The parts diagrams may be more useful for how to remove the agitator. Those are available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/kenmore-parts-washer-parts/model-11021102011/0582/0153200.html?searchType=modelSearch&prst=&q=11021102011&searchTerm=11021102011&shdPart= . The agitator is shown in the Basket and Tub Parts diagram: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/kenmore-washer-parts/model-11021102011/0582/0153200/K1103004/00003.html .

I hope this helps.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11082984810/0582/0153200?pathTaken=

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

See the part "Dog, agitator "

Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.

Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one direction only.

Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

Also see the following illustrated description of the above.

For future reference you might also want to review / print / save the following Whirl[pool / Kenmore Service Manual for these washers:

I can't seem to get the Sears Parts site for your washer model number.

Can you verify that it's correct?

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

In the interim, here is the Whirlpool Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Following is a procedure for removing the agitator(s) on top load washers.


http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136

If you take the agitators out, I'd make sure that any "gunk" is cleaned off and check the splines inside the agitator and on the transmission agitator shaft.

It's probably not a serious problem.

I need direction how to remove Kenmore washing machine clutch


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


See the following:

NOTE:

You don't have to remove the agitator(s) to get to the clutch.

You do have to take out the bolts that hold the agitator(s) to the main spin shaft inside the drum. The main spin shaft is part of the transmission.

You also don't have to remove the Spin Tube and Brake assembly.

It is a lot easier to remove the transmission if you lay the washer down on its' back.

My new Kenmore 400 top load washing machine terribly noisy.


The following advice is for replacing the "Agitator Dogs" on Kenmore and Whirlpool TOP LOADER style washing machines. This simple repair can save you a fortune in repair costs as the replacement parts are very inexpensive at a cost of less than $10. The replacement kit part number is 80040. You can order on line at various appliance parts websites, or use this part number and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer.

What are "Agitator Dogs"? These are small plastic pieces (usually 4) that are located under the agitator center cap that grip the agitator and turn it during the wash cycle. They can (and do) wear out dependent upon the use of the washer. If you are in the habit of doing large load sizes frequently, or wash large items such blankets or afghans, this can wear the teeth off and reduce the life of the agitator dogs.

SYMPTOMS REQURING REPLACEMENT: The agitator fails to turn during the wash cycle, or will not turn with a heavy load. The timer will run normally through all cycles, and you will be able to hear the gearcase (transmission) engage and run. The washer will also drain normally. The only indication that something is wrong will be the agitator slipping or not turning at all. The result will be clothes that do not wash properly and will sit on the bottom of the wash tub.

To replace the Agitator Dogs, follow these steps:


1.Remove the agitator center cap by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2.If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.
3.Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16" hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8" to ½" ratchet adapter to remove.
4.Remove the agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this repair much easier.
5.Place your hand over the top of the agitator and separate the upper portion of the agitator from the lower portion and turn the top half over in your hand. The agitator dog assembly will come out in your hand.
6.With the agitator dog assembly in your hand, lay the rest of the agitator aside. Pay careful attention to how the dogs are installed. Remove the worn dogs and reinstall new ones. It's that simple.
7.With all the dogs replaced and the assembly still in your hand, place the upper part of the agitator over the top of it, upside down, ensuring the inner assembly tabs align correctly.
8.Now keep your hand over the agitator top to hold all the pieces together and turn the entire assembly over (upright position).
9.Carefully align and reinsert the upper portion of the agitator to the lower portion. Again, making sure the two pieces align correctly.
10.Place the entire agitator assembly back on the gearcase shaft and reinstall center nut. NOTE: DO NOT over tighten the nut, or the agitator will not spin correctly. Just make the nut snug. Reinstall center cap and inner cap (if equipped).

These instructions should give you the basics on how to perform this repair. Since there are various agitator types in use by Whirlpool and Kenmore, assembly can vary.

I have a Sears Kenmore Washer model 110 4564191 and cannot remember how to remove the agitator (manual is lost). The agitator is jammed likely with a sock.
