    Agitator was working today but start to make a high pitch bussing noise and now the agitator won't work, when you turn on the washer it smells like something is burning. Would this be a belt problem?

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ult Care II fills/drains ok. no agitation-motor noisey

You may have a broken motor coupling. Failure to agitate or spin accompanied by the sound of the motor running with no tub action are some of the symptoms you can experience with this problem. Just to be sure...the following link explains the symptoms of a failed motor coupling and how to diagnose the problem:

If you determine the coupler to be defective, the next link explains how to access the coupler and replace it:

The part number is included in the instructions I provided. Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The coupler is commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory. The average cost of a motor coupling is about $15.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Top Loading Hydrowave. Washer fills but won't agitate. After a few minutes water is pumped out and it spins normally.

It almost sounds like the lid switch is working backwards but I have never seen that happen on a GE. The switch either works or goes bad. One other possibility is a defective water level switch. Thats also called a pressure switch sometimes.

The washer fills but will not progress to agitate unless you open the lid and let it drop. How can I fix this?

Sounds like the switch telling the machine that the lid is open is either broken or loose. The safety feature of the lid switch will allow the water to fill, but will not allow the motor to start (as it should) if the lid is open.If you are handy with things electrical, simply bridge the switch out.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full

Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

Whirlpool WTW5800SW doesn't always agitate

Sounds like you may a bad lid switch. Do you hear any clicking noise when the lid gets shut. The clicking noise is the lid switch activating.

1 Answer

Washer will not agitate. After starting the washer the water will begin to fill but when it's time for the agitator to begin it shuts the whole machine off.

If the lid lifts up from the front, tighten the hinge screws on both sides of the lid. If the screws are tight open and close the lid..listen for a click.. no click..lid switch is bad.

Washing machine trouble

it sounds as if your lid switch is out of position. in the past depending on the model i have taped a penny or two to the top of the switch so the plunger makes contact
