Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool washing machine but the agitator doesn't work. I was told it might be the pump--maybe something stuck in it. The motor is fine. What can I expect to pay for service? Is it better to get a new one? Mine is only 3 yrs old.

If the pump works, but no agitator movement or spin, it's likely that the coupling between the motor and gearbox has failed...Not a big job for a tech who knows the 'tricks'..Very awkward for a novice...Good luck....Nomess

Washer won't spin, what do I do


Check the lid or door switch this is the usuall issue with a washer that won't spin. The other is a blocked pump or clogged pump filter.

Whirlpool model SM 8525079 fills with water but will not agitate or spin


If you have motor sounds after water fill,but no agitation or spin it could be a broken direct drive coupling. If it will not pump out water,there could be something stuck in the drain pump.

My washer will fill up and when it goes to agitate it just makes a buzzing sound like its stuck and none of the settings will work


Sounds like it could be either the motor, lid switch, or maybe even just something (sock or something else) stuck in the pump locking the motor up.

Washer will not agitate


There is either something stuck in the drain pump or the motor is defective. The drain pump is connected to the front of the motor, if you remove see if the motor works without it. If it does work, check to see if there is something stuck inside the drain pump or if it is seized.
