My washer fills,will not agitate,but will spin to empty. why? #2090 ge topload


That dang drive bell has failed most likely. It has a plastic spline in it that wears smooth with time. Yank off the agitator to get to the spline. themobilian_2141.jpg

Washer keeps spinning. doesn't move to next cycle


Hi,
It sounds like the agitator , air bell or transmission is failing. Since the unit spins the belt & motor is ok. I recommend removing & inspecting the agitator & air bell. If they are not stripped out then you have a transmission failure.
Or, start the washer at the beginning of a cycle set to the lowest water level. After the unit fills it should be agitating stop the washer. Open the lid & try moving the agitator, if the agitator will not move it is good & no need to remove for inspection. You have a bad transmission. If the agitator moves easily then we know that the agitator or air bell is stripped out & will need to be inspected for confirmation before replacing.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Reset computer. Unplug for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times slowly to reset computer. This should solve your problem.

Machine does not agitate, will spin and rinse including.


Hi,does the top part of the agitator move freely when you move it by hand?Or does it catch,if it does not catch the the cogs other wise known as dog ears are worn out.Do not believe the little cogs that catch inside the top part of the agitator can be replaced.You may have to replace the whole agitator unit on some models they are around 40.00.

GE WBXR2060V1WW won't agitate...


There's a part under the agitator(which lifts off if you pull up from the bottom evenly on two sides) called the "Air Bell Coupler" that attaches to a metal toothed motor shaft with one bolt. More than likely the plastic teeth have stripped off from this coupler, preventing it from sitting tightly on the shaft, thus causing the agitator to not "agitate" properly. You can get this from www.partselect.com. PS1517844 KIT - AGITATOR COUPLING
Cost is $7.15 plus shipping.

Good luck!
