A ge top load washer first began by making a buzzing noise instead of spinning. Now it doesn't spin as fast as before or just wont spin. Jeans wrapped around the agitator shouldn't damage the spin?


the agitator spins with the tub so clothes wrapped around the agitator will have no effect on the spin other than a balance problem
The hum and failure to start spinning may be attributed to a failed (failing ) start run capacitor or program board not moving on properly
As the start /run capacitor is for the motor and if it start the wash cycle ok but after that cycle ( around 30-40 minutes) it may be too hot to restart the motor for the spin
I suggest that a technician be called in to get a proper diagnosis and a quote

I have a Kenmore model stylemaster 909610. It fills normally, but doesn't agitate properly, it moves, but barely, no odd noises or anything, just barely agitates and the clothes don't move it's so weak....


If you can move the agitator in both directions, you may just have some bad agitator dogs. They are located under the dispenser cap, below another cap and remove a 7/16 bolt to replace.

I have a LG WT5001CW top load washer. Recently the agitator plate began to loosen and fall off during spin cycle. Now when spin cycle starts and the tub turns it squeaks and grinds then I get a UE alarm.


The agitator has a gear like attachment that meets the long shaft up the center of the tub. If the alignment is off and not exactly in place the agitator will move or the gear-like part will wear down, become rounded, or break. The agitator must fit perfectly and tight. A nut on top (under the cap) has to be turned down tight.

Hi, I have a WA75T65GW1 7.5kg top load washer. I run a favourites program with cold water cycle, auto level and fast spin. The cycle is getting stuck all the time between rinse and spin cycle, bowl is...


This problem will often occur with a light load of clothes. The beeping is usually the unbalanced load alarm. Often, redistributing the clothes around the agitator and moving the agitator manually up and down and side to side to center it again will fix the problem. You may need to advance a new cycle to where it spins out to empty the washer and run the laundry again.

Anyone anygood troubleshooting a Whirlpool Washer?


Thats a problem. Did you have the washer laid on it's side when moving? Timer switch would be first look. Hot water not working,but cold is? Mmmm.. Water inlet is pretty simple no real mechanical parts except intake valve for each inlet. Valve could be plugged or stuck closed on hot intake. Temp switch could be bad and that would cause the water intake to shut.I guess, but not usually a problem unless old machine. Make sure the fuse in control panel is intact. Underside of washer is a relay switch called wigwag. If it is bad nothing will cycle, easy fix 10 minutes and $15 in most cases. But check out before jumping to solve. All ways check cheapest parts first. Lid switch would also cause the no start and spin cycle problems.

Washing machine GLWS1649ASO wont spin on spin cycle. motor and pulley turn, but belt doesn't move. Is it the belt?


no it will not be the belt more so it will be a bad transmission.or something stuck under the agitator i have seen drill bits and keys get stuck under the agitator and cause the transmission to stop
remover the agitator first and check it is there is nothing there the transmission needs to be replaced

Trans will not disengage


either you have something stuck betwwen the two tubs(ie. a sock. ) preventing the tub from free spinning.or there is a clutch mounted on top of the transmission not engaging, as far the agitator not spinning correctly sounds liek the agitaor dawgs are stripped preventing proper agitaing(bottom of agitator works fine but upper portion free spins both ways without resistance?? correct??
