1990 MAytag Series 10 Washer - Fills with water, will not agitate

Tried the different cycles and none of them agitate. If I manually advance timer, will spin and pump out the water. Is this a timer problem? Don't think it is lid switch since it spins out.

It is not a timer problem. This means the mechanism for the spin is still working and the agitation mechanism is not working.

The motor has 2 direction of rotations. One for agitation and the other is for spinning. Of course, there is a mechanism to assist this purpose. Your are lucky since it is easy to fix the agitaition mechanism than the spinning one.

If you take out the front pannel, you can access to the bottom of the shaft, The little white plastic is worn out. This one is the mechanism to activate the agitation. The rest you see are the brake, the clutch and the pulley to take care of the spinning mechanism, but you don't have to worry about them.

You just need to replace this white plastic part then you are good to go. Good luck.

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help


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

    Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle


    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.

    If your washer fills but the timer cycle doesn't advance-replace the timer. If your washer fills the time cycle advance, and still not agitating your agitator is at fault.
