SOURCE: Washer only spins

Have you tried to unplug the machine, sometimes the control boards can get stuck and if you unplug it for say 30 seconds then plug it back in, it may reset itself. otherwise you may have to call someone these are very complicated machines.

Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

2 Possibilities. You have a failed drain pump, or the most likely, you have a clogged or obstructed pump or pump hose. it will n ot spin unitl the water level has reached a certain point. I have found socks in these. You will need to remove the front cover, slip a putty knife between the front cover and the top deck on the left and right side, push and at the same time pull the cover back. the drain pump is on the right side of the washer. If the pump sounds like its humming but not turning, there is something on the pump. If it sounds like its running, but no water being pumped out, then there is most likely an article of clothing stuck in the hose.

My washer doesn't agitate or spin, it just drains and fills up


That sounds like your lid switch. The lid switch on most models of top load washers will be bypassed on fill and drain. As a safety the lid must be closed for agitate and spin.

The lids switch is a pretty easy part to replace and is inexpensive.

The washer will fill up and drain, but no agitation or spin.


The lid switch must be checked for continuity. On this model the lid switch must be good to agitate and spin.

Will not go in to spin cycle


Remove agitator (it will pop off when pried) then you will find your answer. Mine was a broken tub collar to shaft.
