SOURCE: Whirpool lsq9244eqo fills and drains but does not spin or agitate

It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

SOURCE: Fills, does not agitate, drains, spins, fills,

grab the agitator at the base and give it a quick push upward..remove and see if the white dome with bolt holding it down is stripped on the inside where it splines onto the transmission shaft. :)

SOURCE: Simpson esprit 550.The agitator is not moving in

Had the same problem with mine, could be a number of things but in my case it was a relatively simple fix - but you'll need to buy a part.

Open the lid and look inside, the bit sticking up in the middle of the machine is called the agitator. Remove all the fabric softner and lint filter from it and you'll see one very small bolt at the base.

I concocted a number of ratches stuck together to reach it but once undone you can pull the enitre agitator up an remove it.

The agitator is driven by metal bolt with teeth at the bottom of the tub, however the agitator itself is made entirley of plastic, therefore (prob due to age) the metal teeth had eaten away the inside of the agitator and so it was just spinning inside its hole!

eplace the agitator and problem solved.

Our machine , same model, was doing the same. Had a repairman cone out & it was the Motor Control unit, seems to be a fairly common problem. But now its fixed & working well.

Hi, we have Simpson top loading washing machine model number Esprit 550, the drum is not rotating and the spinning plastic rod in the centre of the drum is not spinning/rotating either


that is a direct drive

is the agitator (plastic rod )loose or sloppy
if you look down the inside of the agitator
do you see a nut at the base holding the agitator tight


if the timer is working
and water can pump in and out
that is good

bad
if you cant hear the motor click in
it will need to have the inspection cover taken off
for service or part replacement

Hi my simpson esprit 550 has suddenly stopped spinning,does everything else fine,any suggestions wod b much appreciated,thanku


Has it pumped out? It wont spin if still full of water. Check for blockages etc in hoses and the pump. If its pumping out, there could be a problem with the brake release or it may be the lid switch. It wont spin if the machine thinks the lid is open. Older 550,s had a switch that was operated by a lug that stuck out of the back of the lid, newer ones have a magnetic switch under the top of the machine.

Simpson esprit 550 agitator & spin not working properly.


Open the lid during the wash cycle and observe the agitation, you need to see exactly whats happening, If its corkscrewing instead of agitating it will wind the clothes as you described. Agitation is usually back and forth, or up and down etc, not just turning constantly in the same direction.

The wash cycle is fine however when it comes to drain and spin cycle, the water doesnt drain. It does make a noise during this cycle but im not sure whether the drain pump need replacing or the drain pump motor?
