Will fill and drain, not agitate or spin though

The water in the wash and rinse will fill and drain but my agitator is not working and the barrel isn't spinning either. Any ideas? Motor does hum though.

I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine.  I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain.  The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.

Why does not agitate on rinse cycle


It shouldn't agitate on rinse cycle. ''Quick wash'' is the last type of ''cycle'' you can select that the machine will ''agitate.'' On ''rinse'' cycle, it will fill with water and then simply drain & spin.

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help


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

    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..

    It keeps getting stuck on rinse cycle a


    Hi there,

    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.

    Good Luck!!

    GE Top Load Washing Machine -- Agitator will not cycle


    Agitator's don't spin on wash cycle.

    I would suggest washing the clothes without soap until they rinse clear. If you have hard water, the soap will not easily rinse out of clothes, or off of you when you use soap to wash or shower.

    Reduce the amount of soap you use in each wash if this is the case. It sounds like your washing machine is working right.

    Whirlpool filling and washing, not draining, rinsing or spinning


    Check out your outlet filter, probable it is clogged. Clean this out and refit. Most cases when the drain or spin does not work, it is the filter. This is a suggestion.
