Washer will not spin or aggitate

This washer is only a year old and recently it stopped spinning and aggitating. it fills and drains fine. when i ran a diagnostic check, it said all systems were without fault, however, it also asked me to monitor the number of flashes coming from the motor circuit board...there were no flashes and i'm starting to think that the motor itself is bad. I don't feel like replacing the motor without a second opinion though.

    We have been checking everything on this washer, thought it was loose pin connecter or wire but after washing 2 loads of clothes which did perfect spun out great, the 3 rd load well the final spin didn't work I found this and tried andnow it worked. I just hope this is not someting I will have to after every third load of laundry Thanks again

My whirlpool Estate washer is not draining or spinning but aggitates, what can be the problem?


Sounds like a cycle switch problem. The switch is not turning and making contact with the next cycle. It needs to be changed!

I have a MAYTAG washer that was having trouble in the spin cycle it would drain but would spin slower like the brake was coming on. Now it rinses and spins fine but during the wash cycle it fills then once...


More than likely it has a broken wire underneath that controls the spin. and agitation. I had an old Kenmore that the wire that controls these functions would break about every 6 months.

Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.


without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

Washer fills and drains but won't aggitate or spin


Seven flashes means the washer did not sense a lid opening. Check the lid switch.

Kenmore 20842 won't spin or aggitate


Check your motor drive coupler. Tilt washer back against wall and look between motor and transmission . You will see a rubber grommet and two plastic couplers on each end of rubber , They may appear broken or you will see rubber shavings under washer.

Aggitator won't work and won't spin/ drains ok


Coupling is bad.
There is a coupling between the motor and the transmission. When this part breaks then it will pump the water out but won't spin or aggitate.
