SOURCE: GE agitator does work

The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.
Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.

SOURCE: my ge washer whdsr209d model wont agitate

Reach down to the bottom of the tub and pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is a bit difficult. If so, slip a belt or rope under the agitator, attach to a 2 x 2 or similar object, and **** it straight up and out of the machine. Now, take the bolt out of the center part with a 1/2 inch wrench. Pull the upside down can shaped nylon part straight up and off. If it does not come off, you can crack it in parts with a hammer and chisel if needed. Try to turn the splined shaft with your fingers. If you can turn it, you are screwed. (need a new transmission) Most likely you will not be able to turn it with your fingers, which is good. That means that all you have to do is replace the agitator drive (sometimes called an air bell coupler) part number WH49X10042, reinstall agitator, and you are ready to go. Cheap fix.

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Washer will do everything but spin out and agitate belt good can rotate with hand but on the belt will not spin on pulleys air coupler is good and threads are excellant any advice


Since spin and agitate are the two times the transmission is used, that is what I would look at that. The agitate is the slow cycle of the transmission and the spin is the high cycle. Can you physically view the belt, i.e. that you have things opened up?

Hi,
If you hear the motor go through the stages, but nothing is happening in the tub, the motor belt may be broken or off.

Washer spins but too slow


Clean out the drain pump. Sounds like water is pumping out too slow. This added weight is slowing down the spin.
If water is pumping out OK and you still have the same problem, replace the drive belt.
