SOURCE: GE washing machine, wont spin

Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.

SOURCE: Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start

Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

SOURCE: 1.5 year old ge profile washing machine will not agitate or spin

Timer seems to have gone bad. Manually move the timer to make the dryer spin. If you get it to spin and drain then it's your timer.

Motor on wash cycle does not spim


??? wash cycle is not suppose to spin only agitate, most machine have a dual motor function, motor runs in 1 direction for wash then in another direction for spin. do u mean it does not go into spin? if so need to check the tranny and the clutch, the motor coupler in some cases and if its not agitating washing may have bad cam dogs in agitator, or bad water pressure switch, some times a bad door switch will not allow spin or agitation?

Motor runs but agitator will not spin


if its just the top protion of the agitator that will not spin you need what is call "dog ears" whirlpool part number 80040 if the whole agitator will not move at all( upper and lower) protions then you either have a bad motor coupler pt number 285753a or a transmission problem. good luck

Washer runs but wont adgitate


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch Motor coupler Belts Clutch Drive motor Drive pulleys Transmission Agitator Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley

Kitchenaid washer will not agitate but will spin


Yes this indicates the carbons usually
they are on the side of the motor and will be worn
the machine turns when is empty but when fikked it will try but will not be able to do it
when purchsibg carbons make sure you get the right model
they usually depress out in order to take them out ansd when you replace then you need to clean housing as this durt will prevent in "stike the switch " ignite aand start the motor
the carbons are usually 12 pound dollars euros and you can purchase them at the domesticParts ans repair shps

Won'i\t spin or agitate. was working fine-went


Hi..

if agitator movement is weak or moves in only one direction check the following:

  • Inspect the agitator
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the pump coupling
If drum does not spin check this:

  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

Good luck !!!

Washing machine, kitchenaid, found brass looking pin w/hole in en


No,there are two such pins in the machine for shipping purposes only when it is shipped out,they drop out into little plastic cups under the machine after delivery,
 If it doesn't spin or agitate check the coupler located between the motor and gear box consists of three pieces two are plastic one on the motor and one on the gear box the other connects the two in the center it is rubber.
 If it spins but doesn't agitate,most likely a bad gear case.

Kitchenaid Washer Model #KAWS700JQ4


Washer has a motor coupler linking motor to transmission. If this motor coupler is broken or has rounded out where it engages the motor and/or transmission gear it will only fill and drain. You can view this coupler by leaning washer back against the wall & looking underneath with a flashlight. There may be a sound dampener panel on the bottom that you have to remove to see it. It is two pieces of white plastic with a rubber grommet in the middle.
