Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle


Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

Washer won't agitate or spin


Hello there and welcome to fixya
there are several things that you will need to check first ok please verrify the following
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

My washing machine will drain an spin but will not agitate


There is a good possiblity that the agitator coupler is bad. reach into the machine and try to spin the agitator. If the whole thing spins then you have a bad coupler. Some agitators are a two piece design and the top half is supposed to turn freely one direction and catch the other. if you have that type and the top spins both ways but the bottom stays still you have a bad agitator. To remove agitator, grab the bottom and pull up hard. Its only held on by plastic fingers

Agitator spin freely is this a clutch problem? i took the trans apart a plastic inner gear "interlock" under the agitator spindel that sticks or is unable to slip back into the engaged mode no broken...


I'm not sure what the actual problem is but...

If this is a basic Sears / Kenmore top load, direct drive machine, there is a set of plastic "agitate cams" that raise when the machine goes into spin mode to "release the agitator"


We had a problem with ours and found that replacing the cams fixed it.

For a better idea of how the transmission works, and a detailed description of the parts see the following Whirlpool documents.

Agitator spins in one direction


The purpose of the upper portion of the agitator is to push the clothes in a downward motion. As the agitator moves the dogs grab and on the backward srtroke the top portion rotates a quarter turn. In the spin mose the agitator only goes in one direction or your clothes would be torn to shreads.As the washer rotates back and forth, the dogs grab the inner walls of the upper agitator and that forces the clothes into a downward movement to the bottom of the tub. These dogs will wear out. To test whether or not these are bad just grab the agitator while in wash mode. The dogs should advance the top portion easily. If not then they are worn out. To replace them you must remove the agitator and sit it on the floor. Hold the base down with your feet and yank the top upwards. After seperating the 2 pieces you simply install the new dogs and line up the bottom with the top being careful not to break the little tabs on the bottom agitator that hold the top in place.
