I have a Kenmore Series 90 washer (approx. 6 years old - model # 110.28922791). The upper portion of the "Triple Action" agitator has stopped rotating when semi-heavy loads are added. The local Sears Parts Store said I need to replace some plastic tabs near the top of the agitator. However, I can't figure out how to get the $%^&-ing agitator off to put in the tabs!!! The Sears repair book says I should just have to screw off a cap on top of a central metal post to get it off. However, there is no cap in mine - I just see the top of the metal post and I can't get the agitator off no matter what I do.  However, I did notice that a separate plastic cylinder surrounds the post, and it has a 1/2-inch square opening at the top, which makes me wonder if I need some special tool to fit in that square hole to take off this bad boy. Any help is greatly appreciated - I really don't feel like paying the service charge for someone to do something it seems I should be able to take care of in 5-10 minutes. Thanks!

We have seen these but did not have a reason to remove the agitator ro replace the agitator dogs, ref. # 5.  MY guess would be the spring retainer ref # 14 has to be unscrewed off of the bolt ref. # 19. Perhaps some one else has had the pleasure of doing this and can shed light for all of us???Posted Image

I've been struggling lately with mine too...

I removed the plastic cap by unscrewing it from the inside, inserting some needle nose pliers and expanding them into the corners of the square hole (pull out & turn at the same time). It seemed to work for me...good luck!

First one of these I ran into kind of through me too and I've been doing his for 19years. I had to go back to the shop and look up the parts breakdown to verify that the thing with the square hole was infact the hold down bolt, I didn't want to break it.

Take a 1/2" drive rachet with 1/2" drive extension with no sockets or anything and the 1/2" drive extension fits the square hole perfectly.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Your 1/2-inch racket trick did the trick. Ended up taking me less than 5 minutes to replace those tabs, at a total cost of about $5. I owe you a tall cool one!:D
