SOURCE: Whirlpool washer LSQ9659LW0 will not spin.

If the washer will agitate and drain but will not spin you either have a bad gearcase or the nylon finger that engages the brake is bad. you need to remove the gearcase and check the brake assembly and if that is good replace the gearcase

SOURCE: Does not spin

Seems you need a lube job on the centrifical mechanical switch that fully engauges the spin cycle( part of the pully to shaft assembly)

SOURCE: Agitation issues. Everything else appears/works normally.

I just encountered the same problem. I think the operation of the machine is such that the motor turns one direction for the spin cycle, and the other direction for the agitate cycle. I am replacing my motor, as I think i have a bad winding on the reverse. I will let you know.

SOURCE: -no agitation

Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate
.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

My 10+ yrs old Frigidaire gallery # GLTF1240AS front-loader drum won't agitate/spin


Check and see if the drive belt broke? On mechanical agitators using gears, a solenoid may fail and drive motor won't function.

The washer is not spinning and clothes are extermely wet top load 3.5


Hi, Well try to set the washer on the regular cycle, large load and let it fill. After the washer fills to the selected level, the motor should start and the agitator should start agitating.
If you hear the motor running, but the agitator doesn't move at all, do the following:-
Stop the washer and set the timer on the spin cycle and let it run.
If the washer motor runs and the washer empties the water from the tank, but it won't spin, that is an indication that the motor coupler is not turning the transmission at all.
The motor coupler is made of two pieces of plastic called fingers and a hard rubber piece that goes in between the two fingers. One of the fingers is attached to the motor and the other finger is attached to the transmission. The had rubber round piece goes between the two fingers. When one of the plastic fingers breaks, the motor is no longer coupled to the transmission and the washer will not agitate or spin dry the clothes. The reason that the motor coupler breaks before it should, it is that the user overloads the washer. People stuff the washer with too much clothes, big comforters, small placer rugs, snickers, etc.
Another reason is that the washer is used every day; normally the washer is used 3 times a week. So if you have a washer that is 5 years old and you use it every day, it has the wear and tear of a washer that is 10 years old.
Replacing the motor coupler is not hard to do, once you see how the repair is done. You will save at least $100 by replacing the motor coupler yourself.

Thanks!

Kenmore Washing Machine won't agitate, spin, or drain


The problem sounds like the motor to transmission coupler. If it is not draining or spinning you may find that the lid switch is inop.
