    The entire agitator does not move during the wash cycle, it is making a humming noise, but it goes to the rinse cycle it spins

    I replaced the drive coupling recently, don't think that's the problem.

The entire agitator is not moving during the wash??? or just the top section that looks like a big plastic corkscrew???
or is the unit actually just filling with water, making the motor running noises and going thru the motions of running a cycle yet not actually moving anything within the unit, then draining out as normal??
if just the top section of the agitator is free spinning instead of ratcheting as normal you'll need to replace the agitator dogs if present.
if however the units just filling and draining of water with no inner movement then more likely the drive coupling is bad and needs replacement..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

    well it certainly sounds as though the gearbox/transmission is toast.. if it will actually spin then the motors power is making it there and doing something, just not what you want when its supposed to.. your gearbox is not returning to the wash mode after spinning, parts are not available to repair the trasmission.. $150+/- for part..
    hope this helps,
    best of luck,
    ttfn

Why does not agitate on rinse cycle


It shouldn't agitate on rinse cycle. ''Quick wash'' is the last type of ''cycle'' you can select that the machine will ''agitate.'' On ''rinse'' cycle, it will fill with water and then simply drain & spin.

Frigidaire FWT647GHSO when it gets to rinse first rinse cycle, it doesn't stop filling with water. It won't agitate or spin. It works well in the wash cycle, agitates and spins and advances


probably you've got something blocking the water pump from doing its job properly so check that the water pump is free running emptying all the water if not then there is a blockage in the pump normally ist a button, paper clip or other debris out of a trouser pocket eric

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Hi, our simpson enduro 701 washing machine does not spin back and forward in the deep rinse cycle. but operates ok and spins in spin cycle. thankyou Tina.


    Hi Tina just read your posting. From the information in your posting the machine fills, then when the machine is full of water the agitator moves clockwise then anticlockwise until it gets to the rinse cycle then drains the water ,then it fills for the rinse cycle but does not move the agitator in the rinse cycle.Then it drains and spins the clothes dry .Is this assessment of your posting correct.If it is not 100% correct please reply to tell me what the machine is doing or not doing.If it is correct then the problem with your machine is the control board.Is your model the electronic one with the push buttons?Looking forward to your reply.

    I think that you mean "Agitate" some of the time that you write "Spin" Yes?
    If I understand you correctly, you have no agitation during the "wash" cycle, this is almost certainly a corroded agitator shaft seized up in the transmission.
