Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

No agitation There is no agitation and water turns on and it emptys out into the drain help!! I can't figure this one out. I have an 80s vintage stacked washer and dryer. The washer motor turns the agitation spindle just fine. I can see it twist back and forth about 180 degrees. However, the plastic agitator fins spin back and forth about 5 degrees. I have removed the agitator from the spindle and checked it for broken teeth. There are none.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

The stackable washer will not agitate


Give me a model number. Fridgedare and White westinghouse made some of these stacks for Kenmore. I'll need to know the manufacture. Reply with the whole model number and I'll help.

Kicking out water during wash cycle - spin instead of agitation


Hi,
Try these

  1. Check the drain hose, it should be at least as high as the top of the wash tub, about 38 inches.
  2. The drain hose must sit loosely in the house drain. Do not seal the air gap around the drain hose or a siphon will occur.
  3. Check the drain control lever
  4. Test the drain control coils
  5. Check the cam bar
pls rate my suggestion..

Washer wont drain....


try the lid switch with a screwdriver in the slot to see if it activates. Mine did the same thing, would agitate but not empty nor spin and it was the lid switch assembly--a 35.00 part that cost 150.00 to repair with a repairman!

Frigidaire Stacked Washer and Dryer


check to see that the agitator is spinning out the water, if it is not, you may have torn the wire out of the door switch, which will prevent total water discharge

Kenmore stack washer and dryer


gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

If it only leaks in drain it has to be a hole in the drain hose or a plugged up house drain.
