It eats my clothes

The middle part of my washer seems to be up to high bc clothes will get stuck under it, and caught, and it is very hard to get them out bc they are wraped around the middle part of the washer. What can I do to stop this?

I would remove the agitator, checking to see whether the bolt that holds it to the drive shaft is securely tightened. If it is tight I would then check the agitator for a serial number, usually molded directly into the plastic agitator on the inside bottom. Use the internet to determine if the part is the correct agitator for your specific model of machine. I have seen the wrong agitator installed on machines before and it can do a number on clothes, especially sweaters.

When it spins out it makes a really loud noise

It's more than likely the lower drum bearings. The sad news is they used to be covered by a ten year warranty that Sears took away because they were going broke changing the drum out. So if your washer is less than 10 years old the warranty will not save you and it will cost you between 2 and 3 hundred dollars. High efficiency washers, no matter the brand are pure junk. I've paid for mine twice in repairs. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr Good luck and maybe it's just something stuck under the disk at the bottom.

Item caught under agitator

The top of the washer pulls up. IT may be hard to do. This will expose the whole drum so that you can see around it. If you need to remove the agitator, there is a cap on the top of the center, take it off and you should see a nut and some lock washers, Remove the nut and lift the agitator out.

Washer motor humms and won't spin after filing up with water

remove the water pump from the motor but not from the hoses and start the washer. if it starts then you have a sock or something caught inside the pump holding the motor. remove the object or replace the pump if needed. if the motor wont start then unplug the washer,remove the motor and turn by hand. if it feels hard replace motor. if it moves then leave motor out and move the gear case where the motor connects by hand. if it wont move then 2 things may happen. 1)gear case lockup or a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

if the washer agitates but wont spin with the humming sound then I say the later. a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

Pressure washer lost pressure in the middle of a job

The pressure valve has stuck in the high pressure position. This prevents anymore inflow and hence no further water will be pumped.

Rebuild the valve... There are O Rings to replace and clean the bore with croocus cloth. Lube the O rings with plumber's grease... good as new! 15 minute job. Get EXACT sized O rings for the unit.

My Whirlpool Calypso top loading washer (purchased in June of 2002) is starting to leave brown or dirt colored marks on clothing and sheets (I think they are permanent!) - I don't see any obvious place...

Run the washer empty with vinegar on the hottest, longest cycle. Usually this is caused from fabric softener and liquid detergent build up. Use powder detergent only and don't use cold water to wash in all the time. Only use cold water for your bright, finer cloths. Cold water use causes detergent build up.

Stops in the middle of rinsing...leaves some water at bottom-

Calypso...The pumps fail often. They have redisigned one that theres not as many problems with, but if you still have the original, this is deffinatly the problem. As far as clothes getting stuck, the U-Joints wear out and cause too much play allowing things to get stuck. Total for this repair parts + labor will usually run about 500-600. There was a class action lawsuit for this machine and they no longer make it.

Clothes stuck under the agitator

you really have clothes stuck under the "wash plate" it has almost zero clearance and would be very hard to get something stuck under the wash plate.
if you do have something stuck, then remove the 1 1/2 inch cap in the center of the plate, then a 7/16th bolt that holds the plate down. then grab the wash plate and lift up to remove it.
next time check your pockets and dont let this happen again, it could ruin the outertub by cutting a hole thru it and then leaking.
