Question about Maximatic EPM300 Popcorn Maker

1 Answer

Stripped gear on agitator motor on my Maximatic EPM-300.

I figure I will probably have to replace the motor. Any idea what the part number would be and where to get it. Also the top shrouding is damaged and I would like to replace that also.

You will need to buy the entire agitator motor. For a G8 that is part number y8213. You can get it at a Concessions dealer, or from Partstown.com

Will not Agitate (Frigidaire GLWS1233AS1) The washer fills and then stops. If I manually change the timer to the end of the cycle it drains and can spin. I saw on older posts that this might be a...


Hello,

When ya say after filling "the washer stops" does that mean it is not making any sorta sound?? if it is the transmission,agitator block,or evena stripped gear you will hear the motor running yet it will not agaitate and from reading your question i think it says their is no sounds yet instead it fills then just sits their silent,is that so??

If yes their is no sounds it could be in the area of the timer where the problem lies, since it will drain/spin i am exluding the motor, lid switch or belt as the problem.

If it does make sounds yet just wont agitate it could be a stripped agitator block, or stripped gear but,the belt would be ok since it spins

Our Whirlpool WTW5550sq0 does not agitate any more. Initially it sounded like there were a few gear cogs that were stripped, but it still agitated (mostly). Now no more stripped gear sound, but no more...


Hello there:
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. 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.

Whirlpool ultimate care II super capacity plus ser.# LSQ8243HQO The top half of adjitator is not turning at all. Handiman1125@aol.com


If the bottom half of the agitator is turning and the spin cycle works, then the motor coupling is good.
Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way). If you're able to turn it in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced. To do this remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.

If it there is no agitation or spin, replace the motor coupling.

Washing machine will not spin or agitate.


It doesn't 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.

Kenmore 80 series top loading washer won't agitate and is noisy


Sounds like u may have broken the coupler gear between the motor and transmission... the replaced the belt with these gears on this model... But should go fill & pumb water out and NOT spin Or agitate... IF these gears or broke or stripped... heavy loads like u  said would do this... recheck and see if wash will pumb water out But will NOT agitate or spin.. IF so the above is your problem  and is Not to hard to repair  or much money

Below is a pic with the motor remove the white piece in the middle is 1/2 of the gear system with a rubber piece in the middle (not there)  and another like gear on the motor
sounds like these gears may be broken or stripped on your washer
