kenmore elite oasis broken agitator fins

5 posts in this topic

I have a 110.27032600 and the large plastic agitator fins have all broken off 1 by 1.  I am noticing the clothes are not getting very clean. I am assuming the fins are a large part of the cleaning process.  Could something else wrong be causing the fins to break?  Is there a agitator part available for this washer?  Is this washer brand/model worth repairing or should I look for another machine.  I just need a large capacity washer.  I don't care about getting a HE model.  Thank you!

Would the broken agitator fins be the cause of clothes not getting real clean?  Just trying to determine if it is worth keeping.  I have been reading terrible reviews on this washer.

Yes.  How else would the clothes make dynamic contact with the water-detergent solution in the tub?  Without dynamic contact, the only soils removed will be those that come off the fabric by mere soaking.
