Whirlpool Calypso Topload washer Won't aggitate correctly

The dang machine won't clean the clothes. The aggitator in the basin doesn't move around. Is this a belt or motor problem?

Possibly a belt issue take the top cover off of the agitator and remove the bolt that holds it down. There will be gears inside if any of these parts are broken this will also cause it not to agitate. Let me know

How To Clean Silk


Hand Wash the item. Gently move the silk fabric around in the soapy water. Rub stains with your fingers or a sponge to clean them. Pour the water out when finished washing your garment.
Rinse the silk garment in a vinegar solution. White vinegar removes soap, restores shine and softens silk. Fill the basin with cold rinse water. Add 1/4 c. (50 ml) white vinegar. Gently move the garment around in the water to thoroughly rinse it. Empty the basin again.
Rinse the item in cold water. Add cold water to the basin. Rinse the silk item a second time in a basin of fresh, cold water. Turn the garment over and around to ensure it is completely rinsed and free of soap.

How to move around brandt wm 550


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Whirlpool washer problem spinning


If it makes noise but moves, it's your motor - it it doesn't move at all, it's the belt. Noise and won't move, get a new washer. Check the BELT first - that usually is the problem.

The aggitator slips


t's supposed to be that way. If you could pull it up whenever you wanted, what would keep it from flying off during a wash cycle? The agitator is loosened from a bolt underneath the wash basket. Do not try that or you could damage the washer. Only a repairman or someone who has worked on washers should do that. Only if you had an article fall apart in the washer (a rug, feather pillow, etc.) should that area truly need cleaning. Call any GE repair shop. If this is under warranty and you have ( as shown ) the model #...........a repair inspector can fix this washer free. Have all your place of purchase documents with you. The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

No spin agitate or drain just motor noise


The noise coming from the motor means it is running but cannot drive the drive pulley and the pump pulley because the drive belt is either broken or has slipped off. The drive pulley and the pump are driven by a single belt. Replace the drive belt if broken or loose and has slipped off. Disconnect power then drain the water manually by placing the end of the drain hose into a bucket or a shallow basin. Position the bucket/basin as low as possible to extract as much water from the tub. Once drained, lay the machine on its back to access the belt under the machine. When replacing the belt, wrap it on the motor and the pump pulleys then on the drive pulley. Turn the drive pulley in such a way that the belt wraps around the motor pulley, pump pulley, and the drive pulley.
