Simpson encore 605


Yes its a top loader and cloths are distributed evenly at the moment. My problem is it will not agitate. Its like the brake is locked on. It spins fine but niether the drum or agitator move. the motor is trying but its cant over come the brake (i think). I have had the brake arm off but I am unsure if it needs alinging with the brake tang when putting it back together ?

Simpson Encore 605 agitator bolt comes loose - does it need loctite?


The wear is preventing it from tightening correctly, loctite won't be a long term fix, it will still come loose again due to the forces put on the bolt by the vibrations of the agitator. The only way to fix it is to replace the agitator.

Sounds like a motor transmission problem.190.00 parts and labor is not a bad price.
Check if there is a warranty with the new parts the service person is installing.

I have a SIMPSON ENCORE 555 heavy duty washing machine. It will do a normal wash cycle, but when it comes to the spin cycle, it doesn't distribute the washing around the drum and hence won't spin. any...


Hi just read your posting.Now does the washing tangle around the agitator?In your posting you mentioned the washing not distributing around the drum.Could you confirm that your machine is a top loader for me,because the word "drum and distribute" are terms for a front loader.If your machine is a top loader which I think it is then the problem could be your brake arm or spin coil is not operating.Please reply and let me know if the clothes are tangling around the agitator.Looking forward to your reply.

Simpson Encore 605 - belt sometimes squeals during spin .What maintenance should I do? Spins fine - just squeals from time to time.


Many washers squeal when spin starts. A new belt usually solves it. A bit of belt dressing for car fan belts works wonders. **unplug it while you apply belt dressing!
There is usually a tension adjustment by moving the motor mount back a small amount. Don't over do the tension.
