Sounds like the bearings in the drum may have failed, was it vibrating irratic on full spin before it stopped?

My whirlpool Estate washer is not draining or spinning but aggitates, what can be the problem?


Sounds like a cycle switch problem. The switch is not turning and making contact with the next cycle. It needs to be changed!

Aggitator does not work, makes sounds


if the spin cycle works it's probably a broken belt, otherwise you need a new motor

WILLNOT SPIN OR AGGITATE/IT WILL DRAIN


Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand, indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch, but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate or spin...

Aggitator won't work and won't spin/ drains ok


Coupling is bad.
There is a coupling between the motor and the transmission. When this part breaks then it will pump the water out but won't spin or aggitate.

Washing machine will spin on the spin cycle


aggitator? Does it sound like it is? I would put a flat head in the door switch in activiate the cycle "as if it is running" put some weight on the aggitator, see if you can feel it moving while your weight is on it.

Washine mashine aggitator


Rob, sounds like you need an agitator repair kit. Not a hard job, under the dispenser cap you have a set of ears, spring and plastic bearing. The kit is cheap, you can find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp Catriver...post back
