The knob not advancing I assume is the timer where you pick the cycle you want. This would be called a mechanical type timer which is turned by a small clock type motor inside. It looks like that drive motor is defective and is usually part of the complete timer assembly You need to replace the timer assembly.

Washer will not cycle


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

I have a Whirlpool washer #LA8800XT and want to remove the Fabric Softener dispenser so I can remove the agitator. Does it just screw off? It seems to be stuck and I didn't want to break it if it didn't screw off.

Agitation, agitation, agitation


HI. This problem concerns the integrity of the actual timer mechanism. The dial cogs seems to be worn, and the timer motor may be failing to advance in that particular section of the dial plate. This type of malfunction will require you to replace the timer control mechanism, asap.

GE washer does not agitate. Water does not stop filling.


If it does not agitate at all, then it is either the motor, the clutch/motor control or the agitator.

If the machine start agitating only when you advance manually the control knob, and at the same time is overfilling, that is probably because of the problem with the water inlet valve, or the water level switch, and that is also cusing the cycle to stop.

See:It's overfilling
