Whirlpool top load machines have a coupling beyween the motor and the gearbox..This coupling can fail with age or if the machine is overloaded. The pump should still work even if the coupling is broken..If this is the case then it's not a big job...You need a tech who knows the tricks, and it won't take long to fix....Good luck....Nomess

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer won't aggitate


My Whirlpool WTW6600 had the same problem. The tub no longer floated up and down on the center shaft, so it only spun, not agitated. You must remove the tub (with some effort) and lightly sand / clean the center shaft. Lube it lightly with wheel bearing grease so that after it is reassembled, you can pull the tub upward and feel about 1/2" movement. This will enable the proper gear assembly to engage. It can spin when it rests at the bottom of its travel, but once you fill the tub, it floats, moving upward, and engaging the agitation gear. Good Luck!

HI, you have a combination issue. the Water fill level pressure switch and, the cycle selector switch are both damaged and, they should be replaced. the total cost of these switches will run you about $90.00.

We recommend the hands of a skilled service tech when repairing this type of electrical issue.

Top load Whirlpool washing machine


Many Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washers use a 2 piece agitator. There are cogs called 'dogs' or 'dog ears' and a cam between the two halves of the agitator which can wear leading to a clicking/ticking sound and reduced movement of the top agitator section during the wash cycle leading to poor cleaning results. In most cases these worn parts can be replaced without much cost or difficulty. If you have this style of washer this should help.
