If you get someone quite strong to heave on the drum and it makes a cracking noise then turns a little you will find that the Drum bearings have seized , must have been fairly noisey before it gave up.

Outside chance that the motor has seized

Take the back off and peel the belt off the main pulley one or the other should turn

Why agitator not trning in kenmore washing machine?


If the spin cycle works, but the unit only fails to aggitate......the problem is most likely a clutch or transmission problem. If the unit neither spins or aggitates, you could have a broken belt or even a defective lid switch. Sometimes a model will have broken dogs, or cogs in the aggitator base. To check this, with the machine off..reach into the machine tub..grab the aggitaror and try to turn it manually by hand. If you can turn it and also feel a sensation such as a gear slipping or teeth not properly taking hold or meshing, the cogs or dogs may need to be replaced that are under the aggitator itself. Best Wishes

I have azanussi zwf1437w washing machine. The drum has become stuck and won't turn and can't be turned by hand. There are no socks etc stuck between the inner and outer drum that I can see.


Well, I hate to tell you, but the drum will have to be looked at and that means opening the machine up. It probably dislodged from its mounts from excess vibration caused by unbalanced loads in the drum.

I have a whirlpool LSQ944EQ0 and it won't aggitate or spin. I was wondering if it is the drive coupler that is broken and if that was the problem would you be able to turn drum by hand.


Could be a bad lid switch or a bad coupling.
Open the control panel to access the lid switch connection and check it with a ohm meter.
With the switch closed you must read continuity.
If the switch is OK,suspect a bad drive coupling.

Have a Kenmore 20902 top loading washer. Does aggitate in wash cycle, but wont spin in rinse. With drum empty, it will spin. Removed cloths, rung dry by hand and returned to drum. Still would not spin, but...


Your drum is in a sense sitting on a barring , it sounds like your barring is going out. Works with no weight, and if helping as you said. Normally means barring is worn out and can not handle any weight.

Water drains during spin cycle, but tub does not spin and appears to have dropped down. Machine does aggitate.


If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.

I have one and they are right. Both the drum and the agitator turn so that the clothes are not beaten up.
Also the electronic motor control is fully variable speed. It will go as slow as! Dial up for wollens and it almost massages them. The cycle time is 1/3rd of a front loader.
