Won't agitate or spin model 110.24962300

I replaced the coupling which was broken but still does not agitate or spin. The gear box is leaking a little. I pulled out the agitator & gear box to inspect. Do they need to go back into the machine in a specific way or can I just bolt it back in? How do know if it needs the gearbox replaced?

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.
Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Won"t spin or agitate. Makes a loud rattling noise


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Roper, Estate, Kenmore, Amana, and Frigidaire), you may have a damaged or broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers use a motor coupling between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) in place of a drive belt. This configuration is known as "direct-drive". The coupling can break through normal wear and tear. Washing frequent loads of heavy items and reduce the life span of the coupler. Common symptoms include the following:

1. No spin or agitation.
2. Washer will fill and empty.
3. Drive motor still runs.
4. Strange rattling, grinding or clicking noise during agitation or spin cycles as the drum sits still.

If your washer is exhibiting these symptoms, then its probably a safe bet that the motor coupling is bad.

The following link explains how to replace one:

The part number for a replacement motor coupling is inlcuded in the link I provided. Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also included helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washing machine fills, but will not agitate, drain or spin


Coupling broken which joins the motor to the gear box. Look and see or listen if the motor is running then if nothing else is working coupling is broke, easy to replace.

Washing machine does not spin unless I go in and start to turn the drumb. Lots of water on the floor.


Assuming that this is a top load, direct drive, neutral drain washer you appear to have two problems. No spin and a broken/leaking gasket or pump hose.

A good place to look at parts and diagrams of a basic Whirlpool washer (commercial model but consumer models are basically the same) is:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

It's possible that

1. The motor coupling between the motor and transmission is worn enough that the motor cannot turn the transmission fast enough to begin the spin cycle.

2. You may have a problem with worn/broken cams in the neutral assembly. Those cams/gears etc. in that assembly keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode. Apparently, by opening and closing the lid, and giving it a minor hand spin, the cams and torque from the motor starting throws the cams into the right gears so that the washer will spin.

Inspecting the motor coupler only requires unplugging the, removing the cabinet, pump (two clips) and the motor (two screws and two clips). Since you will do this to check out the pump anyhow, that's a start.

Look at the coupler on the motor and transmission, If it's worn badly or broken replace it. Beyond that, if it appears to be the transmission, you'll have to remove the agitators (a 1/2" drive bolt under the cap for the top agitator and a bolt into the agitator shaft. Pulling the transmission and checking the cams requires a little basic mechanical knowledge.
Remove the clutch (one spring clip), the spin pinion, 8 bolts for the transmission cover (full of 16 Oz of 80-90 weight oil) and the clip that holds the main spin gear in place. Remove that and look at the neutral drain cams. On ours, the cam with a small spring didn't have one (it has broken off) sp the washer wouldn't go into spin mode unless we hand spun it to get it started or lifted and lowered the lid.

Replace the cams, put everything back and it should work.

The waste on the floor could be caused by a leaking pump, broken drain hose or the gasket at the base of the tub. Since you'll have mose of the washer apart anyway, these should be easy to check.

Spin cycle not working, agitator does not move


If it there is no agitation or spin, check the motor coupling. The motor coupling connects the motor to the transmission. Replace it if it is broken.

The part number is 285753A
Let me know if you need instructions on how to replace it.

If it's not broken, you may have a problem with the transmission/gearcase (10 year warranty, get it replaced!)
Good luck!
