Question about Washing Machines
My washer fills properly, but won't agitate or spin. I tried to turn the agitator by hand, and it will only turn approx 1 inch either direction, like a locked steering wheel does. Water drains at right time, rinse cycle runs at right time, just no agitation or spin cycle. I purchased it in 1998, but it could have been 1997...it came new in a home that I purchased in 1998. Please describe the specifics of your problem below. We'll add your post as a comment to nitanita's Washer won't agitate or spin problem, and notify you when a new solution is offered. Simpson Esprit 650 - does all the normal fill, drain etc but most of the time will not agitate or spin. Clutch is okay and drum does move a fraction (as if clutch is coming in/out) and lid switch is fine. Sometimes it will go though after a little patience and a couple of cycles.

Our machine , same model, was doing the same. Had a repairman cone out & it was the Motor Control unit, seems to be a fairly common problem. But now its fixed & working well.
