Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Fridgidaire crws5700as0 top loader will drain and agitate, but freezes on spin. When I am able to get it to spin it sometimes makes extremely loud scraping noise near the transmission. It smoked pretty bad which is how I discovered the problem. I can manually move the tub in one direction but not the other. Belt seems to look fine, and if I can get it to move, the gear under the transmission is extremely hard to turn one direction.

SOURCE: ge top loader washer agitator does not work

To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: ge washing machine spins fine

Hi, the outer tub is fixed to the body of the washing machine and holds the inner tub. The outer tub enables the inner tub to move without hitting any other mechanism in the machine. You probably have a bad bearing which is why the outer tub moves and scrape the buttom when agitating..

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Anytime you have noise while spending, loud thumps and noises, it can almost always be traced back to the drive motor. This is what allows the washer to spin, drain, and agitate. You need to check this out first and check your spin bearing as well. I would say one or the other is the reason for your noise.

This problem is commonly caused by a broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loaders (such as Kenmore, Roper, Estate, Fridgidaire and later model Maytags) all utilize a motor coupling instead of a drive belt. This configuration is known as a "direct-drive" system. The motor coupling wears with age and can break over time. The usual symptoms are a washer that will fill and drain, but will not agitate or spin. A loud noise is also common as the the drive motor still spins, but the transmission will not be engaged. This is a very simple problem to fix and does not cost that much to repair. The following link explains:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574231-replacing_a_motor_coupling


A replacement coupling can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites also include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. The part number is included in the link I provided.


NOTE: The new couplers are reinforced with with a steel grommet to resist breakage better, but they still aren't break proof. Overloading the washer can contribute to premature wear on the coupler and reduce its life span. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for properly loading your washer.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin
