Re: motor will not start in slow agitate

I rewound electric motors in the past, in your case i don't know if its a armature motor it would have brushs. if it was if its without brushs, it would have two septrate windings one for spin, one for wash. the wash windings could be 'faulty',answer! try other motor! if you get one. let me know which motor it is Ire,Close. bye for now

GE washer agitation starts normal the progressively slows and then stops agitation. All other modes work fine. Model # unknown. Motor or transmission? Thanx people!!!

Model # located on the back of the control box of top load, just inside of door on front load. Other Op modes ok, problem points to agitator support shaft or the belt drive of the agitator.

The washer starts in agitation mode. Will not do anything but agitate. Is it Water Level switch that needs to be replaced?

Washers start in fill mode as it requires the level of water set to start the agitator mode.. If your machine goes immediately to agitate then I would think that the agitator control module is failed and needs replacement. have an appliance electrician check it out.

Kenmore washer aggiates slower than when new. is

Usually, there are two agitator modes. A Normal ("Fast") mode, and a delicates ("Slow") mode. Put washer in 'delicates' cycle and see if the agitator slows down even further. If it stays at same speed as in perma press or 'normal' mode, then there is an open in the circuit betwixt the controller dial and the agitator control.
