SOURCE: Washer wont agitate.

If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. 

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. 

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

The water level switch may be going bad. As the water level rises to the proper level, it switches a set of contacts inside to stop the water fill and cause the machine to start agitation. Make sure machine is empty before you replace the water level switch---it works off of air pressure from a small hose attached to it.

Washer won't agitate with clothes in. Will agitate when empty with water


It's a whirlpool top load and 17 years old.
I checked the lid switch, water level switch and they are okay. I replaced the motor coupling. The old one was chewed up and crumbling.
When I put everything back together and turned it on to check if it would spin, I heard a buzzing sound and after a few minutes there was a burning smell.
What should I check to diagnose this problem? would help to have make or model numbers to show age of machine

Washer won't change gears from water fill to agitate


Hi and welcome to FidYa, I am Kelly,
If it does not agitate or spin suspect the lid switch. Listen for a microswitch click as the lid just opens or closes. No Click = bad lid switch.

If it spins then the lid switch is fine and there is a problem with the water level control pressure switch or possibly the control.

Since you did not include a model number this is my best guess for a 3.2 cu ft machine
MVWC300VW0

This lid switch is item 6 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5519632

The water level control switch is item 4 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5519632&diagram_id=28626536#d28626536

The timer item 7 of the above link can also cause this symptom. You must elimiate the water level control as a possible cause first. There is a FOLDED wiring diagram in the literature packet insde the top panel 3 x 5 envelope you can use to jumper the wires on the water level control switch. If the motor agitates then the water level switch is the problem. If it does not agitate it can be the timer or the motor. (More troubleshooting required via the wiring diagrams following power through the circuit to the motor.)

At this time I think you may just have a water level control switch problem. If you do end up replacing it... the wash tub must be empty or it will overflow when testing.

Beginning of wash cycle starts agitating instead of filling w/water.


the water pressure/level switch contacts are welded together,usually the load selector switch for the amount of water lets it fill to a determined water level and the water level creates pressure in a tube from the tub to this switch and stops water fill and starts the wash agitation cycle,replace this switch inside the control panel

Whirlpool model # LLR6144BQ1 water fills but will not go to wash cycle.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This is usually caused by a failed lid switch that is item 9 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=256996

First off put the washer in the spin cycle. With the lid closed see if the washer will spin. No spin also = bad lid switch. If the washer spins but will not agitate then the problem is most likely the water level pressure switch or associated air tubing. (any air leaks and it will not stop filling)
Water level switch is item 12 here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=256996&diagram_id=28209075#d28209075
We test these with NO WATER in the machine and after connecting an external hose with the lid closed with power on by orally passing air into the small air hose we connected. It will click and the washer must agitate. If it clicks and does not agitate... again it points to the lid switch. Disconnecting this water level switch hose with ater in the maching and then re-connecting the hose WILL result in the machine overflowing. Tub MUST be empty.

You check the lid switch as you just open or close the lid. You should hear an audible CLICK as the lid is barely off of its closed position and again as the lid is almost closed. NO CLICK = bad door switch.

These are the 2 most common reasons that will correct the symptom your experiencing more than 90 percent of the time. There is a remote possibility that there is a problem with the motor / motor clutch. Motor clutch problems are noted by odd noises when motor is running and it will not spin or agitate. If the motor will spin the machine but will not agitate the machine it can be a motor winding.

We have a whirlpool LSR7233EZO. When I set the dial where it should fill with water no water runs in but the agitator runs. This happens on any of the load choices. From what I've been able to find out I...


Your problem sounds like a faulty water level switch,not your fill valve. With the machine empty at the beginning of your cycles, the switch should internally be in the "empty" position to energize your fill valve solenoid(s), then when the machine completes the filling to the level selected on your water level knob, the level switch repositions to the "full" position to energize your timer to advance the cycle. If the switch is stuck in the "full" position all the time, as soon as you pull your timer knob out to start any cycle, the machine already thinks it has filled to the desired level, and immediately energizes your timer to advance to the wash step and begin agitation, even though the tub is dry. I will refer you to the following link for a video showing you the fill/switch replacement procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIs9gX0YjxI&feature=related

I hope I've addressed your problem as described

Washing Machine does not agitate


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Following is the Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on how top load, direct drive washers work with a troubleshooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Following is the Whirlpool parts list for commercial top load, direct drive washers although the consumer washers are basically the same.

The problem seems to point to the Agitate Cams in the transmission that raise and lower the Agitate gear on the main transmission shaft. These are relatively inexpensive to replace.

I'd also check the splines on the main agitator shaft and the two pronged "washer" on top of it.

Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.


I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.
