What you probably have is a failed lid switch.

Hi, I just purchased an older style washer dryer combo. When loaded (with as little as two towels) it doesn't agitate or spin. Belt is fine. Drum starts to turn but can't make it up the hill. Any sugg


Your motor may be having trouble starting due to a bad capacitor or start winding in the motor. Ideally you want to use a multimeter to test resistance of the start winding.

The washing machine belt will move to agitate, but will not move to spin. The spin action burns up the belt. This is an Amana LWA50AW


open rear cover , see if belt slips. then remove belt and rotate empty drum if its jam than drum bearings need to change. if drum is free then belt might be loose and needs replacement.

The drum won't spin or agitate the cause is the belt slipping off


There is a mechanical alignment problem beyond your ability to fix. Get a repair Tech and pay for a service call.

Won'i\t spin or agitate. was working fine-went


Hi..

if agitator movement is weak or moves in only one direction check the following:

  • Inspect the agitator
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the pump coupling
If drum does not spin check this:

  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

Good luck !!!

My washer wont agitate or spin


If this machine is a drum type and NOT A TOP LOADER (There was no mention of the model) then the overload has possibly caused the drive belt to either break or jump off the drum pulley.

IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.

If the belt has slipped off or has broken, it can be replaced by fitting the (new) belt around the motor drive pulley (small end) and refitting around the drum pulley, you can do this by feeding the belt around the drum pulley, by holding the belt in place and feeding onto the pulley (IT IS EASY TO GET YOUR FINGERS NIPPED BETWEEN THE BELT AND LARGE DRUM PULLEY WHEN ATTEMPTING TO FIT BELTS BACK - SO BE VERY CAREFUL)

Best of Luck!!
