Washing machine operates sporadially


What made you replace the motor? Sounds also like a transmission problem. You motor reversing in spin but gears for agitate stripped in gearbox. Double check motor/coupling alignment. Pull the motor back off and turn the gearbox drive shaft both directions. One direction makes the basket turn, the other direction makes the agitator turn. If the agitator does not move, the gear case is bad.

Washing machine is making a clicking/ticking sound when it is agitating during wash cycle


This is a sign of strained agitator components that are about to be damaged or stripped. I recommend pulling the agitator and clutch. inspect each device for stripped components and uneven ware. replace the agitator and clutch if found to be faulty.

Check the transmission(gear box) for damage as well. fill with oil if needed.

Agitator not spinning hear sounds inside the shaft


Hi, this agitator may have stripped all of the internal gears and plastic drive adapters that allow it to preform its actions during the selected cycles. The only solution here will be to replace the agitator and drive shaft as well. you can order a complete agitator kit with all the parts as well. this will fix this issue. Please rate and god bless:)

AGGITATOR WILL NOT TURN AND WASHING MACHINE WILL NOT SPIN


Hi. you will need to replace the clutch assembly and the drive shaft gears as well. these components allow the agitator to agitate during the wash cycle and if they are stripped or locked, due to a mechanism failure, it will not do its job correctly.

Please rate and god bless:)

NAV5800a top loader washer


The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.

Agitator not turning during cycle


Well, it sounds like you've done your homework. My first suspect would have been the agitator dogs too, but you said they were fine. Another likely suspect would have been the motor coupler, but you said the washer spins during the spin cycle. If the coupler was bad the unit would fill, but wouldn't agitate or spin. Plus, it would make an awful noise. I would have also suspected a clutch assembly, but you said the wash tub can spin. Normally, when the clutch goes bad, the drum won't spin, or spins slow. Another suspect could have been a bad lid switch, but the washer would have filled and stopped, without agitating or spinning. The only remaining suspect that I'm aware of is the gear case (transmission). Checking under the washer can give you some clues. Normally, when a gear case starts to go bad, they leak an amber colored oil. You may find puddles or drips under the washer. If you see no signs of oil the gear case could still be defective, however. But, before you go through all the trouble, double check the agitator one more time. Completely remove it from the tub and check the under side to ensure the grooves that grip the top of the gear case shaft have not been worn smooth. I hope this may have been some help to you.
