Re: washer broken

Pop the top off agitator (find the split in the top and side and use a knife blade to pry off gently) and there will be a bolt that attaches the agitator to the drive shaft. Check if it's loose or the splines on the lower agitator and upper are worn. If it's not either of these, then it's probably the clutch in between the tranny and the tub. It's easy to rebuild, just like a drum brake on a car.

Washers empties water but wont ring out clothes

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design. Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.
Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.

Washer hums does not agitate

Sounds like your belt has broken.
You need to look under the washer and see if it has slipped off or has broken. It may be visible viewing from behind the washer. If not you may need to remove a panel.

My washer doesn't agitate the clothes. its an admiral.


This may be due to a slipping or failed belt, tip the unit back and visually inspect for any signs of a worn or broken belt.

Washer fills up with water but doesn't agitate or spin to drain the water it just makes a humming sound

check the belt that is connected to the agitator motor. sounds like the belt has broken or it has somehow slipped off. this requires you to unhook the machine (water and electric) and unscrew the back panel off to inspect. if the belt has broken a replacement can be found at a specialty appliance store or the local home depot etc

Should you be able to turn tke adgatator by hand with ease? it sound the washer makes when adgatating is not the same it made in the past and it seems to be slipping.The washer was new in 2005 or 2006.

Your agitator dogs are stripped out. Pry off the top lid of the agitator. Reach inside with a pair of pliers and pull the plastic tab loose. Take a 7/16 socket wrench and a extension to remove the bolt inside. Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it.
Take the center piece holding the rubber dogs out of the agitator. Replace the 4 tear shaped dogs and re-install the agitator.
