Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Flat agitator type. Bolt holding in basket is frozen. Tried PB Blaster, Liquid Wrench, and Freeze-Off. Still stuck. I used vise grips to hold agitator in place while turning bolt. Agitator blade actually bending under pressure. Bolt doe not move. (for what it is worth, 7/16 socket is a bit loose - 11 MM works better). Any suggestions?

SOURCE: washer won't agitate
First, see the Sears parts site for washer model # 110.22952100 which I believe is your model.
Look at the section containing the agitator and you should see how the parts fit.

See the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio washer. It's the same machine as the Kenmore Oasis,

The wear is preventing it from tightening correctly, loctite won't be a long term fix, it will still come loose again due to the forces put on the bolt by the vibrations of the agitator. The only way to fix it is to replace the agitator.

Testimonial: "Thanks :-)"
The handle bars should have a knurled surface at the center where it goes in the clamp/stem. Center the knurled section in the clamp and then tight the clamp bolt. If you have stripped/ rounded off the corners off the hex bolt you will have to either use a pair of visegrip pliers or get a new bolt. Never use an adjustable wrench. You are just asking to strip (round off) the bolt head if you do. Use a box end wrench or socket.
