SOURCE: agitator making clicking noise when washing clothes; clothes wrapping around agitator

Hi,
If this a whirlpool brand washer, there are sone parts bad in the agitator it's self. These parts are called dogs and they make the agitator rachet so that the top half only goes one direction. Does this sound like what you are experiencing? If so, let me know and I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: Clothes sometimes get under the agitator requiring

Sounds like your agitator is not assembled correctly. It should not have things getting stuck constantly and it should definitely NOT be so easy to remove. Feel around the bottom edge of your agitator. If there is more than a 1/8 - 1/4 inch gap (roughly), it's not being snapped all the way down. Take a towel and fold it to where it is nice and fluffy. Lay it over the top of the cone part of your agitator. Get a hammer and hammer over the towel (as not to damage the agitator top). A rubber mallet could also be used. Tap firmly until you hear a click or until the gap between the agitator and wash tub reach 1/4 -1/8 of an inch. This should solve the problem.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

SOURCE: the clothes are being pulled under the agitator,

If the clothes are being pulled under the rotating plate, you need to replace the plate because the plastic-sealing-edge strip is not pressing tightly against the inside of the washtub. I did this and all has been good for a year. The grease COULD be from the rotating parts under the plate, but there is also a post on this Fixya site that has to do with replacing a transmission seal. I have not had the dirty-streaks problem, so I cannont comment on a fix for that. BUT, replacing the rotating plate WILL fix the issue with pulling clothes under it.

SOURCE: clothes get caught under

Check the rubber gasket around the agitator is not worn. If it is get a replacement and insert it in snugy.

Hi my washing machine is tangling up all the washing around the agitator then going out of balance, stops spinning, lights start flashing and beeping? Please help me...


Make sure the agitator is down as far as it can go on the shaft. If it has worked itself partially off the shaft it can cause a gap that will cause your clothes to tangle around the agitator.

I have a SIMPSON ENCORE 555 heavy duty washing machine. It will do a normal wash cycle, but when it comes to the spin cycle, it doesn't distribute the washing around the drum and hence won't spin. any...


Hi just read your posting.Now does the washing tangle around the agitator?In your posting you mentioned the washing not distributing around the drum.Could you confirm that your machine is a top loader for me,because the word "drum and distribute" are terms for a front loader.If your machine is a top loader which I think it is then the problem could be your brake arm or spin coil is not operating.Please reply and let me know if the clothes are tangling around the agitator.Looking forward to your reply.
