You need to change the belt. Over a period some play develops and also the belt looses its tension, some wear and tear is there as well.

SOURCE: Washer won't agitate

Just fixed the same problem. Its a broken belt. Take the front panel off and to the right of the tub you will see a pulley and belt. We replaced both the pulley and the belt for around $40. Was real easy to do yourself.

SOURCE: Kenmore Washing Machine won't agitate, spin, or drain

The problem sounds like the motor to transmission coupler. If it is not draining or spinning you may find that the lid switch is inop.

My Kenmore washing machine, model number 26812690, won't agitate or spin. It goes through all the cycles but the tub doesn't move


if its a direct drive , make sure the brake is releasing for starters, If the spin basket has difficulty getting up to speed, you have a slipping clutch. You can determine this by slightly holding the spin basket when you select spin.A rapid spin up to speed shows a "good" clutch. other things to check for are a broken coupler, or any item trapped between the drum and housing, ( which is what happens most the time, )

Machine fill with water and washes but has to be moved to spin manually


The problem is often worn clutch pads or bands, it is not picking up the basket. Usually if you give the tub abit of a 'push' as you mentioned it will spin.

The repair is fairly involved, the clutch is part of the transmission and basket drive assembly. Although its accessed from the bottom of the machine, first the cabinet and agitator need to be removed then transmission where you will see the clutch band.

The replacement part number is 285790 or 285785 for the entire kit (not often required)

Hope this helps and all the best.

Maytag FAV6800AW have replaced clutch and cleaned under tumblers. Machine will not balance. When rotating tumblers entrie drum rotates (during cycle). I removed drum and no leakage out bottom. Does this...


Let?s see if I understand. Are you in a wash/agitate cycle when this happens? If so is the wash basket rotating Clock Wise with the tumblers rotating (washer top raised for observation)? With A Spin Only cycle selected and some clothes in the wash basket. Raise the washer top from the base and observe the wash basket rotation. The wash basket will rotate CCW the spin direction. Do the tumblers rotate while the wash basket is rotating CCW? If so the load will go off balance. What series is your machine it will be the first two digits of your Serial Number i.e. 10 through 17. Was the original clutch replaced because of severe rust of the One-Way Roller clutches/bearing in the clutch Pulley assembly? Do you have the original clutch pulley assembly? Did your machine use the upper the One-Way Roller clutches/bearing ring? Your series number will help me but if you can confirm. I?ll try to help?.Rich

Kenmore 92587400... The dual action or top portion is not spinning


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/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.92587400

I assume that you mean that the top agitator is not.

See the section of the Sears site for Agitator, Basket and Tub.

You'll see an item #5 "Clutch, Agitator". These are basically used to allow the top agitator to move only one way. If they are worn (which happens since they are plastic parts) the top agitator may not move either way.

There is also a part #6 "Agitator Auger" that screws into the main agitator shaft from the transmission. If this is loose, the top agitator may not move either.

Both of these are easy to check and repair.

Basket won't move-noise


do you notice if it agitates?
if it doesnt agitate it is just a simple coupling
if it is making a humm noise its the motor
if a LOUD rumble ONLY on spin cycle, its the basket drive assembly and the clutch.

Tub rotates CW during agitation, out of balance, hits side of metal cabinet, but no error code



Hello srcoray,

Did you replace the clutch, just trying to get a feel for your hands on experience with the machine? If you did the work did your machine use the upper roller clutch bearing along with the clutch pulley mounted roller clutch bearing?

The FAV6800AW uses a reversing motor and motor controller that powers the motor and clutch pulley to rotate CW in Wash/Agitate cycle and CCW in Spin Cycle.

In Wash/Agitate cycle the roller clutch bearing should rotate freely CW allowing the agitator shaft to drive the transmission in wash cycle driving the tumblers to rotate only not the wash basket. In spin cycle the roller clutch bearing will lock up (one-way roller clutch bearing) driving the spinner shaft to rotate the wash basket and transmission CCW. Unless my thinking is wrong it sounds like the one way roller clutch bearing is frozen or dragging and not rotating freely in wash cycle rotating the wash basket CW. I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Just a few other questions;

If you have a load of wet clothes in the wash basket and you select Spin Only cycle will the spin cycle complete with out dc/UC errors?

With the lid raised can you rotate the wash basket CW? It should not; it should only rotate CCW and do that with very little resistance.

GE Washer Model WJSR2080V3WW Agitates, Pumps, but will not Spin


I solved the mystery of the non spinning washing machine by GE. I pulled the agitator off and to my horror was a broken " hub". This the part in the middle of the basket under the agitator. The transmission shaft comes up through the center of it. Any way, it was severely broken and wedged in so it would not spin. Not sure if this is the only problem but I am going to buy a new machine. I can not get it unbolted to replace the hub and don't want to **** around with it. THANKS.
