Question about Washing Machines
Our washing machine agitator is only rotating in an anti-clockwise direction. It looks like it wants to rotate clockwise and I can hear the motor hum but the agitator seems to be blocked or being stopped from rotating clockwise. The motor still seems very strong and removing the washer's front panel doesn't reveal anything visible as to what might be the problem.
I can manually pull the belt to rotate the agitator in an anti-clockwise direction but it lock when pulling it the other way.
Bad gears perhaps?
Hoping for an easy fix (aren't we all) 8-)
Check the paw. It is a plastic somewhat u shaped piece that sits on the bottom of the machine and is connected by a plastic lever and a solenoid. It usually breaks on the end and as such won't lock the gearbox in. If you keep running it like that there is every chance you will probably burn the motor out.
