I am not sure my machine is agitating correctly. This is my first load and all it does is swish back and forth. Is this normal agitation.

Nicki-you must have a front load machine or an older model that you can lift the lid on. Or this may be a new machine to you-unfamilar with-a make and model number would be helpful-the last new washer we got said on the lid-your new machine will not make the same noises as your old agitator-cheers Denny

SOURCE: agitator only turns clockwise (Whirlpool top load)

You will need to replace the dogs under the agitator, they are pretty easy. Just pop the cap, take out the center bolt, remove it the dogs are 4 teeth looking items.

SOURCE: agitator stopped moving back and forth

Hi, Can you tell me if the spin cycle works? It sounds like maybe a couler has gone bad. Also check and see if the lower half of the agitator is working at all.
Please let me know and I can help you through this.

Thanks
Vic

The agitator is only working in one direction so the washing is getting tangled


The top portion of the wash tub agitator is designed to rotate in the clockwise direction. It should be intermittent. Turn stop turn stop ....in its normal operation.

There is a set of plastic cams that allow for this function. Below the top agitator the lower agitator goes back and forth. With a short load the water just reaches the upper agitator. Try short load. Other possibility the tub is under filled try increasing the water level.

How to remove clothes stuck under agitator


the agitator should pull straight up, you may have to twist it back and forth as you pull upward. when you put it back on make sure its all the way down and in place, this may be the reason your clothes are getting stuck under it.

Does the whirlpool ultimate care II washer agitate like regular washing machines?


it sure doesnt, whirlpool agitation should be a very fast, short and rather violent looking/sounding back and forth motion unlike most other brands where it is a long smooth sweeping motion back and forth

The agitator is not agitating when you start it and it seems to be loose and rocks back and forth


the agitator will rock back an forth. what you will need to watch for is how it washes. fill it will water at a low water level setting. listen for the splashing. if you hear splashing then the agitator is fuctioning correctly. you might have something else wrong with your unit.

Just spins during the wash cycle


Sounds like the agitator got dislogged during moving. In some machines the design allows for the agitator to move up and down alittle too much. Try this and this is only a guess. With the machine empty push down firmly on the agitator and move it back and forth as you do. You might hear a little "pop". If it does, try running the machine again. If it works problem solved, if not tell what happened.

Grinding niose from agitator.


If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.
