Question about Whirlpool WTW5800SW
My washer will fill, sometimes it will agitate, timer will advance, it will then drain and spin. I've checked the motor coupling and it looks good. The agitator will manually and freely spin to the right yet catch when manually turned to the left. I'm wondering if the timer is going bad. Like I said, sometimes it will agitate, but most of the time it won't. Also, after it fills with water and just sits there with the timer clicking and advancing, if I push in the knob and advance it, agitation won't start.
You need to get an agitator repair kit. Remove the cap on the agitator. Some have a second inside plastic cover/cap. You will need a long extension and rachet and 1/2" socket to remove the hold down bolt. Remove and replace the parts with the kit parts. Replace the cover. 10 minute repair... online kit is about $13.00.
