HI. the internal components that make up the agitator should be inspected for damage.

The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction. Another issue that might cause this disruption is the Motor coupler.

Washers with a direct drive motor have a motor coupler instead of a belt. The motor coupler consists of three plastic disks (or tri-stars) with interlocking tabs. Those tabs can wear and break which results in slippage. The slippage causes little or no power to be transferred to the transmission. A worn motor coupling can result in weak or no movement of the agitator and spin basket. Inspecting the motor couplers requires removing the motor, which is fairly easy to do.

Remove the cabinet. Locate the motor. The pump is mounted to one side of the motor. You do not have to remove the hoses from the pump unless they prevent you from moving the pump out of your way. If you must remove the hoses, label where they connect first. To disconnect the hoses, pinch the wire clamps with pliers (or loosen the screw) and slide the clamp farther up the hose. Slide the hose off of the pump port.

There are two clips that secure the pump housing to the motor. Use a screwdriver to pry up the clips and remove the cover. Next, slide off the pump to reveal the motor. Disconnect the wiring harness from the motor, do not pull on the wires themselves. The motor typically is secured with retaining clips and bolts. Remove the bolts and use a screwdriver to pry up the clips (if present). Remove the motor.

Mounted on the shaft of the back of the motor you will find the motor coupler. Separate the three disks and inspect them for damage. If you find cracks or excessive wear, replace the coupler.

**(((If the motor couple is in good condition, replace the agitator components and clutch assembly as well.)))

Water dispenser doesn't work


Hi Eugene Perillo

Check where the water comes into the refrigerator and you should have a solinoid valve...maybe two...if only one...replace the valve, it is defective or has debris or dirt causing the valve not to work...if you have two solinoids then replace the one that feeds the water to the dispenser because it is defective.

I have been having trouble receiving faxes. It doesn't always happen, only occasionally. The printout says "no fax detected"; even though it has rung, it doesn't seem to connect....


!st thing that I do with intermittent fax problems is to call the phone carrier.
Tell them that you are having fax problems. Ask them to test your line. You could have a bad cable or noisy line.

Soyo m/b model sy-p41 845pe.


Eugene, how are you? Not a problem, firstly have you replaced the motherboard CMOS battery? If you have the next step is to boot into the BIOS, most of the time it will mean pressing the delete key, or F8,F10, F12 and or ESC upon turning on your syst. It all depends on what kind of pc you have.

Once you are in the BIOS setup screens go through each one and just remember to save and reboot your syst. This should set you straight. ;)

Whirlpool duet post washer 2006 model will not start any cycle and only hums and pumps odl water out


Sounds like your pump is clogged....first you need to remove the front cover below the loading door... (will be 3 Phillips screws on the very bottom). You will see a white cap in the very center bottom. You are going to need a bowl to catch some water and probably some debris when you remove it....Make sure you get all the debris (coins wrappers...ect... I made about $2.75) out before you put the cap back on the drain...Then try to run a normal cycle again. You can always run the diagnostic program that is found in the manual which is also located behind that front bottom cover if the normal cycle doesn’t go all the way through.....then you got me.....the pump is probably out but you will get more information if you run the diagnostics.....Good Luck.....
