My washer does nothing when you put it in the rinse cycle however it does fill with water. I believe the problem is the timer switch. can you confirm this issue


Not so? If it does not go into agitation? You may have a bad water pressure switch which sends signal to start agitation. but also can have bad cam dogs in agitator which do not engage agitator? a bad door switch will not allow agitation or spin on some appliances. And lastly yes u may have a bad timer wheres points have fused? can check most of these with a multi meter

Hotpoint washer spins but does not agitate


CHECK THE WATER PRESSURE SWITCH AND THE DOOR SWITCH, ANOTHER THING TO CHECK THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR? CAN U TURN THE AGITATOR INSIDE DRUM MANUALLY AND SEE IF IT ENGAGES THE DRUM, TURN IT BACK AND FORTH AND IT SHOULD LOCK AND GRAB THE TUB?

My washer won't spin


Hello Michael Johnson - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

I have a fisher and paykel elba washing machine and the drum is not turning during spin and it is tight and cant be moved by hand either. Water is pumping out fine but it is making a clicking sound when...


Does it pump all the water out and then just do small agitations backwards and forward and never engage into the rinse or spin cycle and never come up with a fault code, if this sounds like your problem then can most probably help as I have to encountered the same problem before and now know how to fix this fault.

Agitator barely moves during wash cycle, spin cycle is fine, agitator will engage during wash cycle if I apply pressure by pressing down on the top.


This is usually the agitator dogs have worn out or broke. These are very inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the proper inspecting and replacement of these parts. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Maytag washer m/n PAV3240AWW


I suggest changing the belt for a new one, in fact if this model has 2 belts, replace them both.
I ran 2 laundromats... this occured frequently due to over loading the machine and then the belt would get damaged just enough to foul up the proper agitation and the spin/drain cycle.
Just change the belts and i'll bet that will get you back into service!

Let me know.

Washer Won't Agitate


I would make sure that the washer is properly leveled, and ensure that all sensors that check if the door is closed are working properly.
