Tipped the washing machine over to tip out the washing and water, gave the thing a shake, hit some parts with a soft faced hammer adn she worked!

I think that process dislodged a blockage in the water pump...

Kenmore 80 Series 110.27802690 agitator barely moving


It's the transmission that's bad. The motor turns one direction to spin and the opposite direction to agitate. The transmission converts the constant belt speed from the motor into the back and forth motion. In the other direction, the transmission stops and the whole system spins.
(I don't suspect you have it set to "delicates")

If you look you will find that when the machine is supposed to spin that is the spin bowl turn. Instead of the spin bowl turning, the agitator is turning and so BALLING the clothes. So......it is most likely a *** designed machine so it has a brake arm and pawl, operated by a small motor or a solenoid. This motor or solenoid is most likely not pulling the brake lever and releasing it to allow spin action. So check the release of the brake. Tony the technician down under....

Ge frontload washer seems like it is not aggitating... what would be the problem???


Hello there:

The first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt. Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having to take the washer apart.




The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.



The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.




The clutch: A bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin. Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you have bad brakes on your car.


The transmission: The transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor pulley and the belt.
As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.

My machine seems to skip the spin cycle.we have replaced the dial and its still not working.


What you have is a worn thrust bearing, a common failure on these machines. When the motor reverses for spin, the cam actuator on the main drive pulley release the brake which is holding the tub still for agitation. If the tub was allowed to move freely during the wash cycle the clothes would end up knotted, tangled, and not too nice. Whilst the motor is turning in the direction of agitate the water remains in the washer. For spin, the motor comes to a screeching halt, and starts in the opposite direction, this makes the pump discharge the water and the tub begin to spin,that is IF the brake gets released. I found the most marvelous repair pictorial on replacing one of these HERE
