I have a 1995 Kenmore washer that has worked flawlessly for 27 years and never needed a repair. Same for the dryer. Amazing!
The upper part of the agitator, the part with the spiraling fins, it not rotating properly. It's basically loose and you can turn it with your hand. (The lower part of the agitator with fixed fins that just goes back and forth still works fine.)
I removed a cap on the top of the agitator and I can see the problem. What looks like yellowed nylon pieces have broken up. They appear to be designed to slip in and out of the teeth they fit just inside of. I marked the "teeth" in the first photo, but can't find them in the parts diagram. (The "teeth" are fine.)
I have also attached the parts diagram and list, but I can't figure out what in the diagram represents the broken parts.
I doubt they still make replacement parts for such an old machine, but is there any chance they are "standard" and replaceable parts?
Thank you. I know nothing about such things.
