    Me, too...KitchenAid...10 years old (1997). I used to be able to manually turn the agitator around (always only went one way, but i didn't get it new so I don't know if that was normal now or not)...the top fabric softner dispenser piece on the top of the agitator came off very easily...not both are "locked" on and machine doesn't agitate or spin. Does everything else. When it goes through cycle, it makes a soft rattling noise. Not loud, but not a smooth noise, a quiet "rattle" which isn't right. Someone help us please!! Thank You!

    OOPPSS...I made a type-o....Both the Agitator AND the top fabric softener cap are locked on. I can't spin the agitator manually like I used to be able to do and the softener plastic piece on top of the agitator won't budge either. Never had a problem getting that thing off. It always used to come off randomly when taking the clothes out of the tub. Something is "stuck" making the agitator and cap lock in place.

Well, I guess by the sounds it you guys have belt problem.
Check to see if the belt is not slipping, if is you may have to tighten the belt. it is very simple there are two bolts on the motor,
One has a slot, and one is just a pivot. You have to loosen the pivot bolt a bit then you loosen the bolt that rides in the slot. Then you pull back on the motor to get the right tension on the belt.
That rattle you hear is the spin-clutch realease arm spring check to see if it's missing if it is then that is where the rattle is coming from that spring holds down the clutch arm when the washer is in spin thus preventing the rattle if it's not there or it's broken you have to replace the spring if your'e in Canada stop by greg's appliance repair and he will fix it for Ya!!!

Hoover 2300L 6.okg boss. Squeaking when agitating back& forth, not when spinning. Is this a bearing problem? & is it replacable. If so, from where in south australia? Or wherever.?




Washing machines don't usually run silently, but in most cases, a squeaking noise that occurs while the washer is agitating the clothing is not normal and signifies a problem. If the noise only happens when the washing is agitating, the problem is likely connected to the motor or your water pressure. Depending on the specific cause, you may feel comfortable fixing it yourself. Otherwise, call a professional.

The Agitator
  • Agitators are located in the center of the drum, or basket, of top-load washing machines. Front loading washing machines do not use agitators -- instead, gravity moves the clothes from the top of the drum to the bottom. Agitators usually consist of a tall cone fitted with arms at the base. The purpose of the agitator is to rotate the clothes and soapy water around the tub to clean the clothes. The agitator itself is not usually the cause of the squeaking noise. It is powered by the drive mechanism, which consists of a motor, clutch and gears.
Motor Problems
  • A repetitive squeaking noise during the agitation cycle may signify a problem with the motor. Specifically, the belt on the motor may be wearing out. Some motors use rubber couplers, which also wear out easily. The belt is necessary for the agitator to turn, but over time, it wears thin, just like the belts in your car's motor. An easy way to test for this problem -- if you're handy -- is to take the belt off the motor and then run it. If the squeaking noise stops, the problem is indeed your belt. Of course, this means your agitator won't move. Replacing the belt should fix the problem.
Water Pressure Issues
  • The tub, or drum, fills with water right before the agitator turns on, and water continues to circulate throughout the washing process. As the tub fills and water circulates, you may hear a squeaking or squealing noise if you have high water pressure. This sound is caused by the force of the water moving through the pipes. To adjust this, turn the knobs on the hot and cold valves on the pipes that go into your washing machine.
Considerations
  • New washing machines may squeak at first as the parts "warm up," according to the GE Appliances website. The noise should disappear after five complete washing cycles have run on the machine. Unbalanced loads, overly heavy loads and loose items in the drum may also cause noise when the agitator comes on, but these things usually do not produce a squeaking sound.

Clean under agitator on a Kitchen Aid top loading washing machine.


To remove the agitator to gently remove the cap from the top - it will have a rubber o-ring seal. Beneath it there should be a nut and washer assembly remove that. Then there should be a stack of agitator parts - clutch, upper agitator, lower agitator. Set them aside in the order you remove them. then back in the opposite manner.
Hope this helps.

Hi, My top loading kitchen aid washing machine model KAWS750J is not working. The agitator doesn't spin anymore and the entire chamber doesn't spin for washing and drying. I hear the motor going but it...


Your machine may have a coupling that has failed, this is a rubber and plastic coupling, designed to reduce noise. They fail and the machine will barely work... This is not a hard replacement. Open the machine and look near the motor.

Brand new agitator does not rotate. I realized that I did not buy a new "seal-cap" that goes between the agitator and the cap. Would the missing cap cause the agitator to fail to rotate? GE spacesaver...


by 'rotate' do you mean that it will not turn at all or that it turns in both directions and does not 'rachet', turning in one direction only and agitating the clothes? If it rotates freely in both directions, it's probably your agitator dogs not engaging either due to improper assembly or breakage.
