SOURCE: spin and agitate problem

Wald, a couple of things here, see if they apply to your situations. I have seen the speed selector switch on GE models go bad and send voltage to both, the high and low windings in the motor. This causes the motor to get real loud and but usually kicks out the overload in the motor. Another issue is the current jogging between the high and low windings causing a chunka-chunka-chunka effect. GE put out a motor kit with a new harness and start cap to correct this problem. Open the front panel of your washer by pusing in on the two clips just under the lid and pulling the front panel towards you. You should see the harness with the start capacitor on the right if you have the latest motor. If you are handy with a meter, you can check the white and white/red wire to the motor. If you have a steady 120 volts to the motor during this jogging, replace the motor with the new kit. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Washer stopped at begin of wash cycle

The problem seems to lie in the rubber backed mat. If the rubber has begun to peel of the mat it often-times get stuck in the drain pump. The best thing to do at this point is to disconnect the electrical cord, open up the machine, drain out the water as best as possible disconnect the power cord to the drain and the hoses. Clean out the drain pump. reassemble. You should be good to go., Unless the drain pump is burned out (left running plugged up too long) if thats the case, replacement of the pump may be neccessary.... Hope this helps...Good luck!....

sounds to me like you have a bad transmission
what happens when you take the agetator off
does it still make the noise or does it go away?
if it goes away when you take the agetator off then you have a bad agetator

Sears 700 series top load washer, model 110.27711600


no that is a shipping pin when they pulled the strap those pins fall into those little cups instead of onto the floor. so it does not spin. does it agetate? if the answer is yes you probaly have a good drive coupler. Possible suspects would be a bad transmission if it is stuck in nuetral drain, clutch if you can push start the basket in spin cycle you have a bad clutch, bad drive block you need to take the agetator off and check to see if the drive block is not raised from the basket drive basket drive has 2 ears that fit into the drive block.

Agitation issue


So you say the agetator is moveing or when the clothes go up and down does it stay in place and make a rattcheting sound. if it is not moving the clothes up and down you need new agetator dogs. pop the cap off the top of the agetator some have a plastic cap that you can poull off to get to the 1/2 inch screw inside. some don't if you can see the bolt around the edges of the inside of the agetator you will see groove marks and when you turn the agetator by have you will see 4 plastic tear drop looking thing that grab the grooves of the agetator these tear drop things get stripped over time. replace them and this should solve your problem. let me know if you have any more questions

ON SPIN CYCLE AGITATOR MAKE A LOUD BANGING SOUND


So while you are holding the agetator is it ripping your hands? or is the agetator just sitting there? If the agetator is just sitting there you probably have bad agetator dogs. I would remove the fabric softner or cap whichever you have. under the cap you will see grooves in the agetator down low. When you manually turn the agetator you should see 4 tear drops that grab the grooves if you do not see this you have bad dogs. Very simple. This usually is the cause for the grinding noise that you are hearing. Please let me know if this works for you //eg

90 series washer doesen't adgitate on the first wash cycle


usually this would be caused from stripped agetater dogs. take the fabric dispener off if you have one. if not take the cap off with a putty knife you will se a cap pull it off. there are 4 tear drop looking thing that is what makes the washer agetate. they grab the grooves of the agetator and turn it. if they are stripped they need to be replaced

Agitator noise in maytag performa machine


The noise in your washer tub could be caused by some object lodged under the agetator. Lift off agetator and check. Or somthing could have gotten into the sump tub. this could be a major job as you would have to remove the complete inner tub assy. One other problem I can think of it could be worn tub bearings. If the washer is 10 or 15 years old I would replace it,
