My clothes doesn't get agitated in the wash or rinse cycle. I don' t see how it can get my clothes clean this way


Need more info, what kind of washing machine do you have? I am going to assume you have a front load washer. There is no agitater, instead the drum rotates, as the drum rotates the cloths roll up the side of the drum. When they are almost to the top of the drum they fall and the weight of the cloths themselves provides the agitating action. I have been using a front load washer for years, wouldent think of using a top load. Hope this helps..

Clothing gets caught under the agitator wings like sleeves on shirts, strings on clothing ie hooded sweatshirts.


This is something that happens with most top-load washing machines. As long as the agitator has wings, stuff will get under them. That is one reason that front-load machines are becoming more popular.

The agitatae doesn't seem to be cycling the


The agitator is made in two parts. Upper and lower. The bottom part does the actual agitating.
The upper part is supposed to be loosely fitted. It just screws down the clothes to contact
the bottom agitator slowly.
The top part turns one way, and slips the other way. By the action of what is called "Dogs" inside
the top part. These dogs are probably worn and need to be replaced
Take the top off the agitator and there is one bolt in the middle of the agitator. use a long extension
to reach the bolt and remove it.
Pull off top agitator (keep it straight up so you don't lose the dogs_
Go to local Appliance store and ask for Agitator Dogs.
Replace Dogs exactly as they came out
When you re-assemble the top it will be loose. This is normal.
Good Luck!
Thank you for using fixya

Washing machine lint trap


There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.

Cloth stuck under agitator in washing machine.


there is a bolt under the fabric softner dispenser (if you have one) if not, its a plastic cap on the top of your agitator which pops off by hand or a butter knife.. then there is a bolt under there that holds the unit down..grap the bottom of your agitator and loosen the bolt and remove it...then lift up carefully on the whole thing..careful not to loose the seal and bolt to put the agitator back in place....good luck..

Agitator - is it working right?


there is slipping in the transmission. older machines used a pair of electrical solenoids to shift between spin and agitate. newer machines use the motor direction to engage the transmission for agitate and reverses for empty and spin. GE service phone: 1-800-848-7620
