It would help to know what washing machine you have.
I'll assume that it is a top loading, direct drive washer less than 15 years old.
If that is false, please send more info, otherwise.....
When the washer is done filling, is the...
1: Motor running, but agitator is not moving? Probably a motor coupler, if that's ok, the transmission is probable.
2. Washer silent, motor not running? Check the lid switch, some models will not agitate without the lid closed, see if the lid plunger is missing, or if the lid switch actuator is loose/broken, if you can see the lid switch actuator, try depressing it with a pencil or some other slender, non-conductive item, sometimes the switch breaks just enough so that the plunger on the lid cannot reach it. If that checks ok, you will need to start making voltage reading from the timer to the motor. hopefully it will not come to that. : )

    Ge frontload washer seems like it is not aggitating... what would be the problem???


    Hello there:

    The first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt. Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having to take the washer apart.




    The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
    If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
    A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.



    The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
    The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
    Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.




    The clutch: A bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin. Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you have bad brakes on your car.


    The transmission: The transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor pulley and the belt.
    As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.

    Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise


    It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.

    Washer will not agitate


    A wears out clutch might prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. Good luck!
