I noticed the washer was getting really noisy. The top portion of the agitaor isn't turning all the way. It is making a snapping, grinding sound. Its like its missing the cogs or something? Is this an easy fix or whole new agitator?

Parts stores

Since you're in Canada like me, I feel the pain about Repair Clinic not shipping to Canada. One company I deal with is Reliable Parts. They are pretty good, and always have quick service and very helpful.

Although it lists the Cam kits as "out of stock" just give the branch in your city a call, they are bound to be able to find it. (I just punched in the model number for my machine)

Brain what kind of washer are you asking about? Please everyone when you ask for advice let us know the make model and age of the machine in question.

Thanks Yogitunes!

Hey Martin thanks for EasyAppliance Parts. I didn't know they shipped to Canada. Their prices are a bit better than Reliable Parts. I also have no idea why I referred to the cogs as cams... Must have something else on my mind lol.

Thanks for your help, You Tube is just the best. It is the dogs that are at fault. There are some broken teeth in the bottom of the agitator too.
I bought my Kenmore in 1995 and this is the first repair it has ever had. I called a repair store one town over. They have the parts for $4.00 and a service call is $46.00, good deal.
The parts are cheaper than Sears and I would spend $20.00 driving to the city to get them. I don't have a big wrench either, to remove the agitator.
