W600 fornt load washer does not wash or spin. It does fill and drain fine.


No agitation or spin? try these:

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
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.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.


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.

Washer fills but will not agitate


When you say the rest of the cycles. make sure it is spinning. That washer will fill up and drain and not agitate or spin if you have broken the couplier between the motor and transmission the motor reverses. tip the machine back and feel right behind the motor for a plastic coupler. In wash check the bottom part of the agitator if its moving and the top is not you will have to replace the doggets in the agittator.

Old Maytag model A510


I know this is an old post but, the most common reason this problem happens is because the timer fails to advance to the next cycle. There is a complicated escapement linkage between the timer motor and the timer cam inside the switch that likes to screw up. It usually burns off one of the sets of points so you can still have fill but no spin or fill and spin but no agitate. The most common set of points to burn off would probably be the set that relates to the spin cycle as the most amperage is flowing to the motor while under the strain of spin cycle. Remedy? Get a new timer switch probably about $50.00 American

Whirlpool super capacity Lsq9549lw0 has trouble spinning on its own.


If the washer does fine thru the agitation cycle (the washing), that means the motor is OK and the coupler is OK.  It would not agitate unless both are OK.  (and don't listen if anyone tells you the lid switch is bad -- machine would not fill & go thru wash cyle). The spin is another matter.  There is a separate tube for spinning the basket.  There is a drive  block at top of the tube (that sometimes fails)  and there is a separate cluch mechanism below, under the tub.  Those places is where you should look.
