It is normal for the top half of the agitator to turn separately from the bottom half.The top half is called a clothes mover,it twirls one way when the machine is washing drawing the clothes downwards.If it is no longer turning in one direction it need a new dog & ratchet kit installed down the centre.

The washer no longer seems to spin... during the spin portion of the cycle it lights up saying it is spinning, but you can see inside that it is not physically spinning. The clothes are left dripping wet...

MY WASHER DOESNT SPIN OUT YOU HAVE TO KEEP GOING IN THERE TO ADJUST THE CLOTHES TO MAKE IT SPIN


i am assuming this is a top load. if so place a screw driver in the lid switch button, turn dail to spin and while holding the spin basket in place turn on. is it very easy to hold basket from spinnihg? if so you may have a slipping clutch. to replace, remove washer body by removing 2 screws from timer console. they may be in front or behind. remove body clips located under timer console and lift off body. next remove agitator. next remove 3 , 1/2 inch bolts at bottom of transmission. slide out. clucth is right there on top side of transmisson. part # 285785

Experiencing a lot of dirt still on clothes


Check to make sure your agitator is working. The agitator comes in 2 sections, a top (#3) and a bottom (#4). Spin the top section clockwise and than the opposite direction. It should spin free from the bottom section in one direction but when turned the opposite direction it should spin the bottom with it. Hopefully that makes sense. If it doesnt, you need to replace the agitator dogs (#10). Very simple to do. the part # is 80040 and theyre about 8.00. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need help with the install or the par itself. dave www.washermd.com

Check to see in you have enough water in tank. The dishwasher fills then recirculates this water under pressure. If you have water in tank, listen to see if motor is running or not. If it is, you may have clogged jet holes in the wash arms.
