I had this happen on mine, and it was the valve that dispenses the water into the drum. I wasn't getting any water into the drum because the dispensing valve/solenoid was not working. I've had to replace it 3 times in the past 5 years though.

Lg waveforce top load washer that is around 3yrs old. The agitator plate hold down screw (under the chrome cap) keeps coming loose and at the end of the wash the plate is up with clothes under it.


Remove the screw and look underneath the agitator, GE machines have a correct way to put them back so the agitator sits at the bottom of the machine with virtually no gap. Tighten the screw hard. Perhaps you lost a locking washer at some stage?

We moved to front loaders.

Motor just humm's when put on spin. Doen's seen to


Assuming that this is the basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain two piece agitator model.

There is a Sears repair parts site:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and a list of major sub-components will come up.

Since it isn't agitating (I assume not at all rather than just the top part of the agitator. If just the top part isn't turning then the easiest solution is replacing the 4 "agitator dogs" ) or spinning the solution points to a couple of places.

1. The motor coupler may be broken. This piece is a fail safe between the motor and transmission. and basically transmits power to the transmission.

Remove the cabinet and inspect the coupler. Following is a good description of how to replace it if necessary.

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

The coupler consists of three pieces. Two plastic pieces with three prongs each that fit on the shafts of the motor and transmission and a rubber piece with six holes that the plastic prongs fit into.

If the prongs are broken off, or the rubber piece is broken, the motor cannot apply power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

If the coupler is OK, the problem points to the motor or transmission.

If you move the timer to the spin cycle, and the machine drains the water , the motor is probably OK.

I'd also check the Lid Switch that prevents the motor from turning in the spin cycle.

Following is a Whirlpool PDf on how top load, direct drive washers work with a troubleshooting guide and description of how to bypass the LID Switch.
