Washer help... agitator

Hello Dr,

I am having the same problem as described below and was wondering if you could help...

My problem is the top part of the agitator doesn't seem to be spinning correctly. I can twist and twist and it will never tighten. I'm not sure if it's supposed to pop in or something else, but I didn't want to break it.

If you can please help I would appreciate it!!
My email is [email protected].


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Washer fills up w water but agitator won't start. It was starting when I would open & shut the lid. Now it won't at all. Sounds like a sensor problem. How can I reattach the sensor? Where can I find a diagram of the sensor or part number.

Wtat is the dr code error?

Hello Aung, I appreciate your post!
Based off what you have described your Electrolux washer is displaying an error code of "DR". The "DR" code means that the door is not closed or the door latch is not recognizing the door is closed. This could be an issue with your door latch or control panel. You should perform a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. If the reset does not help correct your issues I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

Water is draining very slowly out of the washer and if it takes to long it gives a code of DR


It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove the agitator to clean it. I f this is an old style washer, then it should have a bolt under the cap that must be removed to remove the agitator, then grab hold of the agitator and lift up. If it's a not too old then the agitator just pulls out, remove cap, if no bolt, just grab hold and lift up hard...picture. You can also clean the drain hose as that might be clogged if the agitator is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Not in the way you have described!...LOL. Seriously though, I can only discern that if you have selected the maximum water level available, then you are overlaoding it and need to remove enough items so that when the washer agitates, the clothes will circulate down and around the agitator, reappearing up at the top in different quadrants of the wash tub. This is true with any level you select. Another guideline to help choose the water level is to keep the items at or below the 3 oblong vertical hole slots in the side of the agitator. Then choose small, medium, or large water level.
If that doesn't help, then post me back with a more definitive description of the issue you are experiencing and any negative results you are having concerning the issue..
Good luck Dan!
