My washer fills with water,wont agitate but spins and drains


The agitate is a slow speed on a two speed motor. That said, there are several things
which can cause this. I have seen a bad connection on a motor plug do this.
This can often be seen as a dark spot on the semi- clear connectors.

Also a missing point on the timer (They can burn shut and pull off the contact). One way
to test the timer is to see if the washer will agitate on other cycle settings.

Third would be the motor itself. I haven't seen a partial failure ever.

One last thought, If you have a two piece agitator, the "Dog Agits" may be bad,
If you can grab the upper portion of the agitator and it turns freely back an forth, then
they have worn out. They are about 4 dollars. Take off the top plug/softener cap and there is a
bolt (usually 7/16th) that unscrews. Loosen this bolt counter clockwise and remove upper
assembly, The center part containing the agits can be removed and should be very
obvious as to their reassembly. Hope this helps.

I have a GE washer model # WHDRR418GWW. It is about 19 months old. It stopped agitating and spinning. It will fill with water and the timer/knob will go thru the cycles. But when it reaches the washing...


You have what is called "agitating dogs" there are usually 4 of them at the bottom of the agitator. They have small grippers which lock onto the agitator and agitates. If the washer is ever overfilled or over time filled to heavy this will wear down the nylon teeth on the "dogs". The top of the agitator will spin off, you will see a bolt inside at the bottom, remove bolt and the agitator will pull out. Google "agitating dogs on washer. It will give you pictures for a better understanding. If the belt was broken the washer would not drain, because the belt turns the pump. These dogs are about $5 and honestly easy to install. Good Luck.

Washer will not agitate but fills/drains/spins


Could be related to pressure switch which measures the amount of water in tub. Does it fill and then just sit there?

GE Washer WJSR2080V3WW will fill, spin and drain but not agitate.


The problem is the agitator coupler (about $ 7.00) simply pull straight up on the agitator - Give it a good tug. take the one bolt holding the coupler off - pull straight off. Replace the coupler and bolt (they are sold together). Line the agitator lines up with the coupler lines - when they line up it should go all the way down and snap back into place. and your done.

Will not Agitate but will spin fine


Hi,
Make sure washer is unplugged before beginning repair.
Remove the agitator from inside the washer by loosening rubber nubs with a screwdriver.
Then loosen bolt underneath agitator cap with a socket wrench.
Check clutch assembly area for wear and tear. They can be found in the upper portion of the agitator assembly.
If the dogs (which turn the clutch) are in bad shape, try replacing with a dog kit.
Put agitator back on and test
If its spins out on the next load you do, you're good to go. It could be one these more complex issues: Bad Wiring harness, Bad Motor, Bad Transmission, Bad Motor Coupling.

Does not agitate or spin


Let me make sure I hear your symtoms right..

The washer fills...sound like the motor is running but it doesn't agitate or spin.. then when it tries to drain it bascially gravity feeds out until there is no longer enough water to force it out?

Sounds like the belt is off, or broken.. I am not all that familiar with your model, but I think most GE's are belt drive.

If it were the agitator coupler, the washer would probably still drain..

Pull the front cover off of the washer, you will see the belt and pulleys, make sure it is A: still on the pulleys, and B: tight.

If not, loosen the four bolts on the moter, put the belt on and then slide the motor towards the rear to tighten it.. then tighten the four bolts. They may simply have not tightened the bolts on the motor from factory and the motor slid back loosening the drive belt.

GOOD LUCK!!!
