Our whirlpool washers agitator doesn't agitate during the spin or wash cycles

I would asume you mean it does not adjatate during the wash or rinse cycles.If it fills and you can here the motor run after it fills/then it drains and does not spin and fills again for the rinse but does not adjatate ? I would guess you have a broken motor coupler ..Most shops will do that repair for under 100.00....If I had more info I could be more sure...anyhow if more info is needed just repost....I hope I help you if I did please give a vote...thank you good luck

P.S mod # helps so much

Agitotor not spinning during wash cycle M/N: LSR8244EQ1 Machine less than 10yrs. old, good shape

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.

Agitator not turning when washing Whirlpool ultimate II super quiet mod # LSQ9264HZO, everything else seems fine, spins rinses, drains, replaced timer disconnected lid switch wired together besides that no...

This is a common problem among Whirlpool washers. There are 4 dog leg shaped plastic cogs fitted inside your agitator and these are worn or broken there won't allow the top of the agitator to grip to the lower portion. therefore getting little or no agitation. the part number for the dogs are 80040 and come in a package of 4. if there is more damage done to the agitator dog support, you may need to replace the cam as well which is part number 285809. both are very low in cost and involves only taking the agitator , which can be done by taking the dispenser cap off and removing the 5/16 screw. after this you can take an old belt or similar rope type object, and remove the agitator. some agitator require a lot of force to remove but persistence is the key. Hope this helps.

Wont spin

I had this same problem once and it was pretty simple, I removed the agitator asembly, not 100% sure on your model. and there is a cupling between the moror and the agitotor. the guy at the appliance store saidit was a sacraficial part that brakes when a large load is put on the motor to protect it. usually like a 13.00 piece

What are "dogs"? Thanks, Kirk

well basically they are these ear shaped plastic peices that are in your top half of your agitator under the cap that catches on a cog that makes your agitator spin one way during agitation and lets loose going the other way
