Why is the agitator not agitating?


Is this a machine withwith an agitator & a fixed drum? If this is the case I would think that the drive belt has stretched or broken.

Kenmore agitates doenst spin


You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.

I have a maytag over capacity plus heavy duty 2 speed 10 cycle washer it fills with water fine you hear the motor kick in to girate but doesent spin or you put it on spin cycle it sounds like it is...


The motor is working, but the mechanism not engaged by the helix so the shaft can not move therefore no agitation or spinning. Motor is designed to turn 2 directions: clockwise and counterclockwise for agitation and spinning. Therefore there are 2 mechanisms to assist these tasks. The drain is control by a separate pump and it is still good also.
The tube has to be out to replace the helix for agitation and a part to engage with the spinning rotation to release the brake so the spinning function can work. These parts are cheap, but the the labor is not. Hope this can help

Old maytag A208 will not spin


I would say, there is something holding the inner drum from rotating. Possibly an item of clothing that has slipped between the drums.. When washing only the agitator(pulsator) moves, when spinning, the complete drum rotates as well. Remove obstruction.

It sounds like you have a problem with your spin/agitate motor or gear assembly. The drain is open it works by water pump and by centrifical motion. Opening thr drain duct shouldn't help anything. It really needs to go in to spin cycle to drain water. As far as it not spinning, you can buy replacemnet parts for the spin/agitate motor and gear drive, or belt drive if it is belt driven..

Won'i\t spin or agitate. was working fine-went


Hi..

if agitator movement is weak or moves in only one direction check the following:

  • Inspect the agitator
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the pump coupling
If drum does not spin check this:

  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

Good luck !!!

Kenmore elite top loadwasher spins and pumps but will not agitate


Hello, your problem is not the motor, it is the drum shaft collar or what the tub rests on. It is on the top of the shaft. You need to remove the shell, the plastic collar that rests on top of the drum, the agitator, then the nut that holds the drum down, and then pull the drum out, and then you will see the collar. I know it is hard to get to so I would call a pro for this job unless you think you can do it. The part is cheep it is the labor that will cost you. Thank you

Washer will not agitate, took belts off and it will only spin one way.


Only one direction seems fine. On some machines there is a solinoid connected to a lever that either disengages or engages the drum brake to keep the drum from rotating during agitation. Some units reverse the motor direction when agitating and spinning. (one direction for spin the opposite for agitation. Most generally when the motor works in only one direction, say it spins fine but not agitating the culpret is the control dial. There are several combinations of electrical connections that must all make to go from one cycle to the next. On some other models there is a plastic cog that is moved by the solinoid to make the change. Without other info such as make and model, I can't really be sure how to tell you to diagnose the problem..The main thing is one direction is probably right on the turn question.
