It is most likely your drive coupling. This is a small rubber like piece that is positioned between the motor and the transmission. The easiest way to tell this is to look underneath the washer and see if you see pieces of something down there. Here is a picture of the coupling kit, so you'll know what to look for. If you don't see anything, you will need to take the case off the machine, then remove the motor. Then you can see if it's broken.

It could be the lid switch or the drive coupling. You should hear a click when you put the lid down and again when you open it. If you hear this, your lid switch is probably good. You can put a multimeter on it and test it for continuity to be sure. When you click it, you should get a reading.

Our whirlpool washers agitator doesn't agitate during the spin or wash cycles


I would asume you mean it does not adjatate during the wash or rinse cycles.If it fills and you can here the motor run after it fills/then it drains and does not spin and fills again for the rinse but does not adjatate ? I would guess you have a broken motor coupler ..Most shops will do that repair for under 100.00....If I had more info I could be more sure...anyhow if more info is needed just repost....I hope I help you if I did please give a vote...thank you good luck

P.S mod # helps so much

Washing machine works up to the spin cycle, it does not spin it does however empty the water. this is a roper brand top load machine about 5 yrs old.


Lid switch. A safety mechanism used to make sure lid is closed in spin cycle. You can bypass this switch by placing the wires that go to switch together. DO NOT do this if you have children or do not want to remove that safety feature some require because they dont know better than to open a washer in spin cycle. :)

GE WJSR2070B won't agitate


There is a drive block under your adjator. You must pull the adjator off. Get your fingers ( Man Friend LOL ) under edge of adjator & pull. You will see a plastic pat with screw in it . if you can spin with hand , replace it .
