On the wash cycle the agitator in the middle is turning in only 1 direction. When it is meant to be going in the other direction, you can just hear a clicking sound.

Check for a broken attachment under the washer above the drive belt or a failed solenoid that engages the attachment.

Limited agitation during wash cycle Load Sense OK


Possible that the program selected is an easy wash as this is meant for daily wash , less soiled clothes.
If however the same situation is present in all the cycles then the capacitor to the motor must be checked as it can reduce the speed of the motor.
Also check the belt , check for friction on the drum spindle and the motor.

Hi just read your posting.Depending on how old your machine is it could be a couple of reasons.1st thing I need to know is how old your machine is? Also when the machine should turn the opposite direction listen carefully and do you hear a hum from the motor when it should be turning in the opposite direction?Please reply with this additional information and I am sure I can help you .Looking forward to your reply.

Washing machine operates sporadially


What made you replace the motor? Sounds also like a transmission problem. You motor reversing in spin but gears for agitate stripped in gearbox. Double check motor/coupling alignment. Pull the motor back off and turn the gearbox drive shaft both directions. One direction makes the basket turn, the other direction makes the agitator turn. If the agitator does not move, the gear case is bad.

Washing machine won't agitate. It spins but does not agitate in the wash cycle. The agitator turns freely when manually turned. How can I repair this?







you will need agitator dogs if it is a whirlpool product you will need to open up the top cap on agitator there will be a 7/16 nut remove it and then pull from under bottom of agitator carfull it may pull off hard .After that the agiator splits in 2 in the middle there willbe 3 dogs in there seeded around the part insert new parts line up the 2 parts put back on and away you go .That is of course it is a whirlpoll product.

Maytag washer will not agitate. model pavt244aww


TURN THE PULLEY ON THE BOTTOM. ONE DIRECTION WILL CAUSE THE PULLEY TO TRAVEL UP AND RELEASE THE BRAKE, CAUSING THE TUB TO SPIN. TURN IT THE OTHER WAY AND THAT SHOULD BE YOUR AGITATION. YOU SHOULD HEAR THE TRANSMISSION CLUNK AS THE GEARING CHANGES DIRECTION TO GE THE AGITATION ARC. IF NO NOISE IS HEARD, YOU HAVE AN INTERNAL PROBLEM WITH THE TRANSMISSION.

Agitator and spin cycle


if you hold onto the top of the agitator stopping it from turning, and turn the "blades" at the bottom, does it make a ratcheting, clicky sound when you turn them opposite direction from each other
