    Usually a no spin or agitate problem is caused by either a failed lid switch, or broken motor coupling on this model washer. Can you elaborate a little more on what your washer is or isn't doing?



    For example:

    - Does it fill?

    - If it fills, does it agitate?

    - If it fills, does it agitate, then stop when it gets to the spin cycle?



    Please post back to this thread and let me know, so I may be able to assist your further.

Not likely, usualkly it would account for a "no water issue" or perhaps an overfill issue"( if the valve never closed). I guess ifthe machine has no water then it woulndt enter agitate, but i doint think that is your question.. so depending on age of machine, 2 things, newer machines will not agitate or spin with a faulty lid switch. ( unit would fill with water and stop completey silent).thistells me that the door/lid switch is not activating.. if you hear the motor turning nad yet no action form the agitaotr then ii would point to a motor coupling issue

Could be, Try any of the online appliance parts stores, Mfg, model possibly year. There is a possibility depending on age that a "reversing switch" is not working properly or connections from or to it are bad. Or possibly the drive motor is not "accepting" the switch's instruction.

The machine fills up but won't spin or agitate


Fill valve sends a signal to the timer to turn to agitate cycle, could be a loose wire, or possibly a bad timer. Fill valve is obviously ok
since the water shuts off at the proper level.

It is possible that the motor may be on it's way out. You might check to see if it has a start capacitor on it that may be getting weak and possibly by pushing the agitator takes the initial load off of the motor. Just a thought.

Washer does not agitate or spin. makes loud noise when it's on:filling, trying to agitate or spin and emptying.


Possible that the INLET valve is also making noise due to faulty coil, check , confirm by disconnecting the valve.

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

Hello.

Whirlpool washers are available in many colors and with different options, including various tub sizes, front or top load styles, a fabric care system, high efficiency wash features and energy, time and water sensors. The washers may be purchased in department stores, home repair stores and online. Many are Energy Star rated. However, the washing machine may malfunction occasionally and not agitate or spin. If this occurs, some troubleshooting steps may be useful in solving the problem.

1 sure the washer has electrical power and is connected to a grounded electrical supply. Replace or reset the circuit breaker or fuse if needed, particularly in event of a recent power outage. Make sure the washer lid is closed tightly before use; the washer won't work if the lid is open.

2 void selecting the following cycles: "Extra Low,, "Low," "No Spin", "Delicate," "Casual/Perm Press" or "Hand Washables." All of these cycles use little to no spinning or agitating during the cycle. Select the highest possible spin cycle for the fabrics being washed.

3 pen the washer lid and redistribute the load; unbalanced loads may cause the washer to stop or slow down. Add additional items if only one large item,
such as a rug or blanket, is in the washer.

4 Use only the recommended amount of laundry detergent, as excess sussing can reduce the overall spin speed or cause the washer to stop agitating. If the Whirlpool washer is a high-efficiency model, use only high-efficiency laundry detergent.

5 Examine the drain hose and straighten if kinked. Remove any possible obstructions and ensure the end of the hose is no more than 96 inches from the floor, as this will cause water to flow back into the washing machine.

Thanks.

WON'T SPIN


If your washing machine isn't spinning or agitating in either the delicate or the regular cycle, investigate each of these areas as a possible cause to the problem: the Selector Switch, the Clutch Assembly, or the Drive Motor. Check out this link to PartSelect.com http://www.partselect.com/washing-machine+no-spin-agitate+repair.htm it will tell you how to test each of these areas!

The water comes out in the detergent/softerner liquid dispenser; instead in the main washer.


Water Problems
Sometimes water will not enter the machine in order to properly wash clothing. In that case, the water may be turned off or the water fill valve, water temperature switch or timer may not be functioning correctly. A defective water valve or timer can also cause the machine to not enter the spray rinse cycle. Another issue that arises is when the water will not drain out of the machine. The drain may simply be clogged, or the drain hose or pump may be malfunctioning. Water will splash on the floor if the pump or water valve is not working, or if the machine is operating on a low level of water with a high level of agitation, which means the force that promotes all the functions of the machine.
Cycle Problems
Malfunctions of the various cycles are common as well. If no agitation occurs, the agitator spine may be stripped, or the motor or internal transmission system could be broken. If the machine will neither agitate nor spin, the belt or coupling is most likely the problem. There are a number of issues associated with either no spin or a slow spin including an open lid, defective lid switch, spin tube, wigwag, timer or wigwag wire or a drive belt that is not properly adjusted. When the motor will not run at all, first check the power cord to make sure that it is plugged in. If that does not solve the problem, issues are found in the timer, lid switch, motor or water level switch.
Other Issues
Sometimes washing machines will excessively vibrate or "walk," meaning that they begin to inch forward while the motor is running. Check inside the machine to see if there is an unbalanced load. Heavier items, such as sneakers, cause vibration as well. The load can be fixed and any unnecessary items removed. If the problem persists, other possible issues include an improperly leveled machine, a worn-out snubber, broken suspension springs or shipping pins that have not been removed. Another problem that arises with washing machines is oil leakage caused by transmission failure, which is one of the more costly issues to fix.

+whirlpool LSQ8243HQ0 water valve works. wont wash or spin. new motor coupling and timer.


Under the agitator you have what is called (agitating dogs). The agitator will have to be removed. The top should spin off, you will be able to look down into the agitator and see a bolt. Remove this bolt and the agitator can be pulled out. The agitators are small pieces of plastic with small teeth. These teeth get worn out over time or if the washer is overloaded. When the agitator free spins one way the teeth grab a (gear) on agitator and this is how you get the washing action (agitating). These dogs are easy to replace and cost about $5.

It spins during rinse cycle but the clothes don't spin dry. Still very wet, even after a second spin without any more water being added.


It may not be spinning fast enough. Is the agitator operating at normal speed?

Possible causes for slow spin are overloaded washer, slipping belt, bad bearings in the motor or clutch, or slipping clutch.

Another possibility is a problem with the pump, but I suppose you would also see some water left in the bottom of the machine in that case.

Whirlpool washer WTW57ESVW0 won't fill with water. I bought this machine two months ago was working fine and then just stopped filling water. Spin cycle and drain cycle work but it won't start fill...


Solution for WTW57ESVW0 Whirlpool Washer that won't fill or agitate, but will spin and drain water.

Replacing the Auto Load Sensing Switch (W10177795 - Illus. No. 12 on Control and Rear Panel Parts) fixed the problem.

In addition, a defective switch can also cause the machine to start agitating while it is filling.

It is relatively easy to replace and there are online videos that can help with the replacement.
