It most likely is the coupler. It is located between the motor and the transmission. It is an easy repair and only costs around 20 dollars. To change it out simply unplug the washer and tip it back so you can work under it. The first thing you will see is the pump. Take off the two clamps with a flat head screw driver and move it to the side. Do not take off the hoses unless you want water everywhere. Next you will see the motor. The motor is held up by two clamps. The clamps have 2 screws in each one. Remove the screws and with your flat head pop off the clamps. Make sure you hold the motor cause when you take off that first clamp the motor will drop. The motor coupling will come off with it. Put your new one on, (it only goes on one way) and put everything back together again. You will be up and running good as new in no time again. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help.

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.

Hi, our simpson enduro 701 washing machine does not spin back and forward in the deep rinse cycle. but operates ok and spins in spin cycle. thankyou Tina.


Hi Tina just read your posting. From the information in your posting the machine fills, then when the machine is full of water the agitator moves clockwise then anticlockwise until it gets to the rinse cycle then drains the water ,then it fills for the rinse cycle but does not move the agitator in the rinse cycle.Then it drains and spins the clothes dry .Is this assessment of your posting correct.If it is not 100% correct please reply to tell me what the machine is doing or not doing.If it is correct then the problem with your machine is the control board.Is your model the electronic one with the push buttons?Looking forward to your reply.

Agitator wil not move makes a growling sound but all spin cycles still work


Either the transmission is bad, or more likely the agitator dogs are broken. If you pull the top pieces from the agitator you can see the agitator dogs and tell if they are intact or broken. If they are good, the transmission might be bad. The only other thing will depend on if the machine goes through the wash cycle to the rinse and spin without ever agitating, or if you have to manually move it. If you have to manually move it, your timer is probably bad.

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.
