Help! I replaced the clutch and motor coupling a month ago. Ran great till this week. The wife washed tennis shoes, it quit agitating and spinning-i could hear the motor running fine. I again replaced the...


Have you checked for any damage on the lid switch at all? Washers won't engage the cycle you're having issues with if the lid switch is faulty. usually a magnet or plastic piece that pushes down the piece to engage agitation.

The washing machine wont agitate?


There are many possibilities for this problem. you will have to check all of them one by one mentioned as follows :--- There is a lid switch in the washer. The washing machine will not start spinning till the lid is closed. In some cases it has been seen that lid is closed still the washer does not agitating. in this cases the lid switch has to be checked. if the lid switch is faulty then the closed lid will not be detected by the washing machine, and it will not start agitate cycle.
But if the lid switch is ok checked, then other possibility can be fault in the motor coupler. Many a times the motor coupler is broken .The motor coupler is plastic/rubber kind of material fitted on the shaft of the motor .Check properly if the motor coupler seems cracked, worn out loose or broken then it needs to be replaced to solve the issue. But if motor coupler is checked ok then other possibility for this problem is the spinning belt. If the belt is worn out or loose or cracked/broken then it needs to replace.
Only for GE washers. In GE model washers, there is a clutch used for proper spin speed. If the clutch wears out, it has to be replaced.But if clutch/belt seems ok. then other possibility is driver motor itself .check if the motor has power if not then the motor is got internally burnt .in this case the drive motor needs to be replaced. but if drive motor is functioning properly then other possibility to be checked for this fault is the transmission shifter and pulley. If the transmission shifter becomes defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. Replacing the shifter is bit time consuming and tough job. you will require proper tools to deal with this problem.. But if the transmission shifter is properly working then other possibility to check is the Agitator itself.If the transmission is moving properly but the Agitator is getting stuck and not moving properly then its the fault in the agitator assembly that has to be replaced to solve the problem. This will help.Thanks.

BASKET WONT SPIN TO DRAIN


Check the lid switch could be bad or have a bad connection. The lid switch is to keep it from spinning with the door open. If it won't drain it won't spin it may have a hose blocked or the pump is not working. Check if the motor runs after it agitates. If it does is the pump turning? Check all hoses , from tub to pump, from pump to drain, check for sewer blockage. A sock or something could be in the hose from the tub to the pump, or in the pump not letting it drain. If it is agitating the coupler must be ok. Hope this helps.

Spin cycle does not work. Lid switch works, fills with water , agitates, pumps out ok, but no spin. I have heard there is a kit for the transmission.


To begin there should be a good coupling between the motor and transmission, would assume it is ok as it agitates. Also there should be the motor running in drain and spin on the timer as it is draining and you say the lid switch is ok. The coupling or a bad lid switch are the most common problems on this washer. (a good washer)

The kit you are referring to is called the neutral drain kit, which is fairly simple with instructions. To install it(parts go under top gear in the transmission) however you have to pull the transmission.Suggest also changing the gear case oil but it is your washer. Also before you go this far would pull the agitator(7/16 bolt on top) and check the tub block is not stripped on the spin tube where the two tabs are on the top of the tube. You will pull this out anyway if you decide to disassemble and pull the transmission. When you pull the transmission you will have access to the clutch(if it spins empty but not with a load you need a clutch)
good luck,

My GE washer won't spin or agitate


check the motor capacitor if your motor doesn't turn when powered, otherwise the "wig-wag"coil could be faulty,these coils shift your transmission for different cycles

GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin


This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

Kenmore 70 series won't always spin. It agitates but does not always spin. Lid switch, tranny, what?


It could be lid switch. It could be spin basket drive as well. Will you ewasher agitate with the lid up? Does the washer motor run but the tub doesn't spin? If the motor runs in the spin cycle with the lid down, it is not the lid switch.
The spin basket drive is driven by the transmission.
Let me knwo if I can help further. Thanks

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

GE washing machine, wont spin


Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.
