Sounds like the nut that holds the agitator on to the shaft is not tightend down or the agitator is not fully "locked" into place on the shaft.

Ge top load washer won't agitate or spin after

I have a GE top loading washing machine. The agitator has stopped working and the drum no longer spins at the end of the cycle when the water drains. What can I do to fix it and get the agitator...


Hi,

When the agitator on your GE washing machine does not work correctly, the most likely cause is a worn drive bell. The drive bell sits on the agitator shaft inside the agitator. The shaft and the inside of the bell lock together using splines. When the splines inside the drive bell wear out, the agitator will not rotate correctly. To repair the agitator on the GE top loading washing machine, you will need to remove the agitator and the drive bell.

1. Unplug the GE washer from the wall outlet. Open the washer lid to access the agitator.
2. Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands and pull the agitator out of the washing machine. If the agitator will not budge, rent agitator hooks to pry the agitator out. Agitator hooks are available at appliance repair stores. Set the agitator hooks under the agitator and push down on the handle to pull the agitator off the shaft.
3. Pry off the plug on the top of the drive bell on the agitator shaft with a small flathead screwdriver. Use a socket wrench to remove the hex head bolt at the top of the drive bell. Carefully pull the drive bell up off of the agitator shaft. This may take some force depending on how stripped the inside of the drive bell has become.
4. Inspect the inside of the drive bell. There are splines inside the drive bell that line up with the splines on the shaft. Most often the splines inside the drive bell have worn, causing the shaft to spin but not the drive bell. Also inspect the notch on the outside of the drive bell and the notch inside the bottom of the agitator. If either of these are worn, replace the drive bell and the agitator.
5. Take the drive bell to an appliance repair shop to purchase a new part. If you need to replace the agitator, take the old one with you as well. Compare the new parts to the old ones, making sure they are identical.
6. Position the new drive bell over the agitator shaft, lining up the splines on the shaft with the splines on the inside of the drive bell. Set the securing bolt back into the top of the drive bell and tighten the bolt down until it pushes the drive bell down until the bell bottoms out. Push the new plug on the top of the agitator bell with the palm off your hand until the plug locks into place.
7. Place the agitator over the drive bell and slowly rotate the agitator until the notch inside the agitator lines up with the notch on the outside of the drive bell. Tap the top of the agitator down with the palm of your hand until the notch on the agitator locks down over the notch on the drive bell. The agitator will not bottom out flush with the tub.
8. Close the washer lid and plug the washer power cord back into the wall socket.

The defective agitator is the cause of the drum not spinning. So get the agitator fixed and it should solve the spinning problem.

Good luck.

Tub will spin but agitator won't move on my ge washer model wpsr3090v0ww


IF it sounds like it is agitating but isn't moving, check to be sure the agitator is still firmly bolted to the transmission shaft. If it sounds like it's stuck when it tries to agitate (belt slipping possibly, etc.) it is probably a bad transmission and often not worth repairing unless you can find a used one somewhere.

Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

Ge top loader washer agitator does not work


To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

Washer will not agitate


A wears out clutch might prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. Good luck!
