My Whirlpool Estate TAWB600EQ1 will not spin or agitate

If the washer does not agitate at all, does not spin, but will still drain, this is a symptom of a broken motor coupling.

The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

This is a very simple repair that doesn't cost much. The repair is actually much easier than you think and requires no special tools. The part number is included in the link I provided. Appliancepartspros.com carries a replacement motor coupling for about $11.

NOTE: A broken motor coupling is usually accompanied by a loud rattling noise. You can hear the motor engaging and running, but there is no tub action.

If you need an illustration, you can refer to the website I mentioned and locate item 13 under the Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump section.

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the gearcase (transmission). It takes the place of a drive belt and commonly fails on Whirlpool manufactured top loaders due to normal wear and tear. This configuration is known as a "direct-drive" system. The replacement motor couplings are more resilient and resist breaking better, because the manufacturer added a steel grommet.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Can you move the agitator freely by hand? If so, you will need to replace the agitator due to it being stripped out. Here is the part to order.

Wife did a load of laundry. he washer filled and started to work but it would not drain spin or rinse. it will keep running the agitator if I turn the nob its self.


check for a bad door safety switch, you can locate the switch and the connection plug and unplug the switch, and add a jumper wire between the 2 connectors that lead away from the switch , spin, rinse, and drain, need this switch to work or the machine doesn't do those motions,

Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine gets stuck in cycle.


Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

No spin - agitate


Hi,

You just do this

  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drover belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

Please give a make and model of washing machine. I suspect that something has stripped out between the motor and the transmission, which is the noise you heard.

Kenmore washer model 110.92597200 agitation problem


When it is not a direct drive it will be the carbon brushes in your motor which are gone.
This will explain the drain in power.
Good luck
