Maytag Washing machine won't Agitate

My maytag top loader (about 15yrs old) won't agitate.

It will fill and drain just fine.

But for the agitation cycle, it will just spin.. clockwise..

Then for the "spin" cycle, it will spin... counterclockwise..

I drained it, and grabbed ahold of the agitator, and when I tried to spin it by hand, it would spin the entire assembly, both directions.. the agitator and the tub would spin together.

My wife hasn't heard the machine make any funny noises..

Any ideas?

    I smelled rubber like the belt was burning. Find pieces of it under the machine. It appears the machine is not agitating. It fills with water and drains w/no problem. What do you think it could be?

    I have the same exact problem with my LAT5006AAE model washing machine also.

SOURCE: The drain pump only turns 1 turn counterclockwise and clicks to a stop. What happened?

To check the pump you should remove it from the washer and try to rotate its pulley manually to both sides. If it doesn't turn freely (frozen or stiff) look for foreign object inside the pump. In case the pump is clean and doesn't turn freely,you should replace it/ Good luck !

Centennial series stops agitatimg


Usually a top loader will not agitate until the fill sensor is satisfied. If the water has shut off, and is up at the desired level, the fill sensor has done part of it's job. Check the connections there, and at the timer. It may just be a loose connection.
