SOURCE: My washing machine turns on but wont rinse my clothes

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.

It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

How do I remove a clog from the drain hose or pump in an avanti 758ps washing machine?


I would either use a shop vacuum and suck it out or compressed air and blow it out.
Either way, you will need to disassemble it to do this. God bless your efforts.

How do i fix "OE"code.


if it is like my dishwasher the oe code means the unit is over filled with water. My dishwasher had a major fault that blew up a circuit board and had a faulty front assembly. Still in repair shop waiting for parts.. I would deduct that the washing machine is not emptying water so I think a water pump could be failing. My dishwasher was not activating the washer motor and came up with the same code but..

Good morning! i would like to know what error code appears on the screen of the indesit we125 washing machine in case of a damage of the tank, a crack or something that let the water flow out the tank


I do not know why the tank cannot be welded. Just take it to the person in a welding shop and with gas welding they would rectify your problem.
In case they do not weld it then you ask the manufacturer to replace it. They normally have their own service/repair shops to cater for such requirements.

go to a dealer/ distributor parts department and ask for a cabinet for your model. A appliance repair shop may have a second hand part from a scrapped unit.

Avanti W797 Combo Washer and Dryer............Does not fill with enough water to wash clothes. It will runn the cycles with some water, but clothes do not all even get wet????? How can I correct the...


I have this problem too. Called the repair man out to the house & he just told me it was set at the factory & there was nothing he could do. I discovered if I held the water level knob between the settings given, water would run to the level I wanted as long as I held it in place, but I don't know if this does any damage to the machine. So I don't know if you want to try that or if it can even be done on your model???

But if not, it seems a good place to start.

I empathize with your plight; I have a Bertone '87 X1/9, my favorite car of all time but have been fortunate in finding a low-mileage parts car in case I need any.
I grew up in original Avanti-land; South Bend, IN.
