Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a GE washer that will not agitate. The washer thinks it is agitating and goes through the cycle. The drum turns but the agitator doesn't. What could be wrong with it and how hard is it to fix?

Pull the agitator off and check the plastic block attached to the shaft top. Is it split or has sheared splines inside it? Remove the mounting screw to expose the shaft. Does it turn back and forth when it should be agitating? If no, possible transmission problems.

GE washer WNSB9080B only allows me to run "Drain and Spin", no other cycle. It wounds like there is still water inside when I move the drum around.


In top loading washing machines, the agitator is responsible for moving the clothes through the water and detergent and is driven by the output shaft of the transmission. The output shaft is normally splined and the center of the plastic agitator will have a matching spline to ensure a tight fit. Depending on the brand of washing machine, the agitator may be a single piece unit or a two piece dual action agitator. If the single piece agitator or the lower portion of a dual agitator does not oscillate back and forth during the wash cycle, or if the agitator can be turned on the transmission shaft, then the spline may be damaged and the agitator may need to be replaced. Most agitators are held in place with a bolt that threads into the top of the transmission shaft and is located below the softener dispenser or top cover. Some models use a small set screw in the barrel of the agitator just above the base to secure the agitator to the shaft, while some will use a rubber o-ring to provide a tight fit. When the retaining device is removed you should be able to lift the agitator from the shaft.

Washer fills with water but doesn't begin to agitate to wash. It also drains but doesn't spin when we set the dial to that


Your agitator pindle. has come loose From the spline. Try to lift up on the agitator. If it lifts off the spindle easily then it has worn out the spline. That is what connects the agitator to the s

The aggitator slips


t's supposed to be that way. If you could pull it up whenever you wanted, what would keep it from flying off during a wash cycle? The agitator is loosened from a bolt underneath the wash basket. Do not try that or you could damage the washer. Only a repairman or someone who has worked on washers should do that. Only if you had an article fall apart in the washer (a rug, feather pillow, etc.) should that area truly need cleaning. Call any GE repair shop. If this is under warranty and you have ( as shown ) the model #...........a repair inspector can fix this washer free. Have all your place of purchase documents with you. The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

I have a GE washer model # WHDRR418GWW. It is about 19 months old. It stopped agitating and spinning. It will fill with water and the timer/knob will go thru the cycles. But when it reaches the washing...


You have what is called "agitating dogs" there are usually 4 of them at the bottom of the agitator. They have small grippers which lock onto the agitator and agitates. If the washer is ever overfilled or over time filled to heavy this will wear down the nylon teeth on the "dogs". The top of the agitator will spin off, you will see a bolt inside at the bottom, remove bolt and the agitator will pull out. Google "agitating dogs on washer. It will give you pictures for a better understanding. If the belt was broken the washer would not drain, because the belt turns the pump. These dogs are about $5 and honestly easy to install. Good Luck.

The agitator will not turn


please be more specific. Do you mean that the drum turns but the agitator in the center does not trun at all? Does it turn freely by hand in both directions? Does it not 'rachet' as the drum cycles? The problem may likely be the agitator dogs. These little plastic pieces are found by taking the agitator apart (cap, holding bolt, catch burrs, etc). They are designed to allow the agitator to rotate in one direction only, thus forcing your clothes in a downward spiral in the center of the washer. The parts are fairly inexpensive ( a couple of dollars) if ordered online. The hard part is getting to them.
