Washer will not agitate or spin

The washer will fill but then will not agitate. if I put it in the 'rinse' cycle, most of the water is pumped out but it does not spin.

Fws445rf1 washer didnt stop filling and flooded my apt and it doesnt aggitate when it is washing,the whole thing just spins inside instead of moving back and forth,what are the most likely reasons for...


if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine.
when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill.
it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate!
my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!

Agitator won't spin during wash/rinse cycle. It's


Hi,

There could be several reasons for washer not to fill .Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.Reassemble hose from step 3.Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Hi, Do you know if the washer spins at all?
It sounds like the coupler has gone bad.
Please let me know if it spins at all.

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter

Kenmore stack washer and dryer


gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
