Machine will barely agitate if at all

Just replaced the drive coupler thinking this was the problem, and loaded with water turned on and it still will not agitate? Any suggestions, the machine will spin out, just wont agitate.

GE Washer will not agitate but it will spin


Put old coupler back on transmission shaft. Can you now turn coupler? You should not be able to. If you can, grooves in coupler are stripped out. Replace coupler. Part # WH49X10042

Kenmore 80 series washing machine fills but wont agitate draqins but wont agitste or spin


My bet is on the drive coupler. if you can here the motor run and the machine will drain water then 99.9% it will be the drive coupler.

This coupler is behind the motor and is what conects the motor with the transmission.

The agitator in my kenmore elite washer won't agitate. The water won't spin out. The basket turns, and we've had the clutch replaced. Any suggestions?


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.

Lsn2000jq agitator barely moves (fills and drains OK) but wont spin? ....gearcase or clutch???


That model should be a direct drive. They seldome have trans problems. It sounds like the drive coupler is bad. To replace the coupler. From the bottom of the machine you should be able to access the motor. You will need to remove the water pump (plastic). It is retained by 2 strapps. They sometimes have safety screws.to hold the ********. if so remove them. remove the hoses from the pump. Pry the strapps off sideways, they pop off. remove the pump and the motor can be removed the same as the pump (2 strapps). pull the motor off and the coupler is there (3 parts to replace). The coupler kit costs about $14.00 online. It takes about an hour to fix.

    Washer problems


    if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

    alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...
