Re: wheezing sound

The inside tub moves on the spin stage only and cause the water, by a centrifugal force, to be forced out of the clothes. During the wash cycle,the tub is stationary and the agitator moves forth and back. If you would like to remove the agitator - Remove the inner agitator cap (inside the top of the agitator) and then open the screw (be aware not to lose parts !) Good luck !

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Agitator seems loose inside tub. should there be sise to side play?

No, the agitator should have a rigid, fixed position. It is only supposed to rotate "back and forth".

My washer wont aloud my water to go insidethe washer

If the washer makes a humming sound, but no water goes in, and there is no other action, the water shut-off valve is off (outside the washer), or the pipes are frozen.

For top-load washers: If the washer starts agitating immediately without filling the tub, the water level switch is bad (falsely senses the tub is full already) or the water level sensing hose plugged up while there was water in the machine, and it has still has pressure inside it to fool the level switch.

Washer leaves trash on clothes when finished. has been doing this for some time now. some of the particles resemble dried tree leaves.

It sounds as if there is a soap buildup in possibly a couple of places and it is coming loose then ending up on your clothing. If you changed brands of soap this can happen also. The soap buildup can be under and inside the agitator. It can manifest itself in large calcium type flakes in the washer when it finally breaks down and you see it. You can remove the agitator by opeing the top of your agitator and removing the retaining biolt then lifting out the agitator. Use a putty knife and scrape off the inside of the wash tub under the agitator. Also take the agitator either outside or to the bathtub depending on weather and scrub it clean on the bottom and on the inside of the agitator. If after all of this you still have that same material show up you may have to remove the wash tub itself and clean the outer tub with a putty knife. There is a special tool that locks into the 4 slots of the tub nut used to remove the tub nut. You can buy it at most appliance part centers. Tell them you need a tub nut removal tool for a kenmore / whirlpool top loading machine and they will walk back and get you one straight away. Good luck andI I hope this resolves your problem.

Fills the hums loudly

Hello , Have you looked inside the pump where the hose comes from the tub , there could be an item clogging it , also try turning the pump where the shaft goes by hand , it should turn freely.
You can also try turning the gear case with the motor off where the coupler is attached , 1 direction will agitate and the other direction spins , you should be able to turn the gear case both ways and it will not turn easy.
if all of these check out the motor could be bad but it is highly unlikely.
let me know how it works and if you have any other questions.

Washer wont run but is trying to

Sounds like the motor or capacitor (next to the motor), the capacitor helps the motor to start, once running a switch inside the motor disconnects the capacitor from circuit.

Ok final Question

If this is a frigidaire, when the washer has a load in it, as the agitator agitates the tub should move about 1/8 of a turn. Meaning that for 8 agitations the tub should make 1 revolution. We call this indexing in the appliance repair world. If the tub is making 1 revolution in 4 agatations or 1 revolution in 1 agitation, the transmission is bad. This should have a 5 year warranty if purchased before 2006. You will also need a tub seal. Hope this helps

The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.
