GE washer WNSB9080B only allows me to run "Drain and Spin", no other cycle. It wounds like there is still water inside when I move the drum around.


In top loading washing machines, the agitator is responsible for moving the clothes through the water and detergent and is driven by the output shaft of the transmission. The output shaft is normally splined and the center of the plastic agitator will have a matching spline to ensure a tight fit. Depending on the brand of washing machine, the agitator may be a single piece unit or a two piece dual action agitator. If the single piece agitator or the lower portion of a dual agitator does not oscillate back and forth during the wash cycle, or if the agitator can be turned on the transmission shaft, then the spline may be damaged and the agitator may need to be replaced. Most agitators are held in place with a bolt that threads into the top of the transmission shaft and is located below the softener dispenser or top cover. Some models use a small set screw in the barrel of the agitator just above the base to secure the agitator to the shaft, while some will use a rubber o-ring to provide a tight fit. When the retaining device is removed you should be able to lift the agitator from the shaft.

Tip

Noise from Whirlpool/Kenmore washing machines / agitator not turning


Many toploading Whirlpool (and Kenmore -- they're made by Whirlpool) washing machines have a ratcheting agitator. The agitator moves only one direction instead of back and forth. There are small pieces (called agitator dogs) that allow this to happen. However, since they are mad out of rather soft plastic, they tend to wear out. The result is a ratcheting or growling noise during agitation (wash cycle) Luckily, they are reasonably cheap (usually under $20) and relatively easy to fix. Try to turn the agitator by hand. It should turn freely one direction and not the other. If it goes both ways freely or clicks and slips one way, you need new agitator dogs. Pull the cap off of the top of the agitator (there are usually two tabs on the side that must be depressed to do this) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator. Pull out the plastic plate that is on top of the dogs (again, you may have to move two tabs to pull this out.) You should see dogs that look just like the new ones except with no teeth on them. Pull the old ones out and put the new ones in the same way. Reassembly is the same as disassembly except in reverse. It should be quieter and wash better now, as the agitator was barely turning before, if at all.

Item caught under agitator


The top of the washer pulls up. IT may be hard to do. This will expose the whole drum so that you can see around it. If you need to remove the agitator, there is a cap on the top of the center, take it off and you should see a nut and some lock washers, Remove the nut and lift the agitator out.

I think there may be a coin in the drum, how do i get to it


Try removing the top plastic cover from the agitator which may either unscrew or pull up. Then there is a nut which you can unloosen to remove the agitator itself. and possibly get at your elusive coin. If you can't then the only way after that is to disassemble until you can remove the agitator and drum.

Fisher and Paykel ECS Washing machine agitator slipping?


There are "dogs" under tops of some agitators. Easy to repair. ID them and pull up washing machine parts at Amazon. Dogs are by themselves(3 hard plastic gadgets) but better to buy the whole thing that hold the dogs. Usually under $10.00.

GE washer model WJRE555OH1WW - agitator free-wheels.


First make sure the inner part of the agitator is not brocken.

Remove the soap cap from the top of the agitator and with a torch, look down into the shaft. There is normally a nut which secures the agitator to the gearbox shaft. If the plastic around the nut is broken then the agitator moves freely.

There may not be a problem with your gear box, then and relatively cheap to replace agitator.

goodluck.

The plastic drum just keeps spinning freely during the wash cycle


Yes! to let you know that this is NORMAL when the washer agitates, due to the "Westinghouse" designed transmission, which in turn is called the "Franklin" design.When the agitator returns back stroke the washtub "indexes" before the agitator strokes forward. Thus moving the load around through the water while being moved back and forth.
Plus! to let you know that since the washer does NOT have "brakes" to stop the washbasket and hold the basket this design allowes the "indexing". This is one of the main reasons your washer has a safety lid interlocking device on it to lock the lid when it spins, because the washer has no brakes to stop the machine if the lid is opened during a spin cycle.
