I take it the motor was still running and you could stop the agitator. Pull the agitator off by pulling it straight up. Sometimes you need to slip a belt or similar object under it and attach the other end to a handle to allow you to pull with more force. Now, take the one bolt off and remove the plastic upside down can shaped agitator drive. If it cannot be pulled off, you will have to break it (use a hammer and chisel). Now, if you can turn the splined metal shaft with your finger, you have a bad transmission, but more likely you will not be able to turn it with your fingers, which means all you have to do is replace the agitator drive WH49X10042.

Try resetting the mainboard by removing the wall plug overnight. May also be a faulty lid switch if it is a top loader.

    Water will drain durring spin cycle


    This is normal on some machines. Run it through a complete cycle it should fill, agitate, drain, some will drain down so low then start spinning as it is draining but should stop draining before it fills or stops. Check if water is coming in at the same time it is draining. If not it may be ok.

    I have a 2004 whirlpool gold super capacity plus and It is not agitating durring the wash or spining durring the rinse cycle? You can hear the moter spinning, but it is spinning nothing?


    If this is a top load washer, there is a plastic coulpler between the motor and gearcase, it always strips or breaks, you can go to www.searspartsdirect.com to look at exploded view of the parts for your washer and get the part numbers

    The machine made a slight squeek noise each time it slowed down and then started up again (durring the wash cycle) We also noticed a strange odor. It was almost a asbestos burning type of smell. Then later...


    It probably mean the spin brake has failed. If everything else is functioning OK and it is not making anymore strange noises it will be OK however when you open the lid(during spin) if it takes more than 10 seconds to stop then the brake should be replaced. If you need anything else please let me know.

    Loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds like agitator is slipping,then banging. No noise during spinning cycles.


    Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

    This is your Agitator:

    http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc201

    It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

    Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

    http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc239i1195917&PartID=1195917

    This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    Maytag 6300 won't agitate durring wash cycle


    HI. this is usually caused by a faulty drive assembly(agitator gear components and clutch malfunction).

    I recommend replacing the agitator components by purchasing a Agitator replacement kit. and, replace the clutch assembly as well. this will fix this issue.

    GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


    Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.
