Make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle

With the front panel off and with washer in wash cycle, the motor is turning, but the agitator is not moving and there is a metal grinding noise from the area of the motor belt pully. There is also a lot of what looks like metal fillings in the area of the motor. During the spin cycle the water is pumped out of the tub, but the tub itself is not moving. The motor is turning and the belt is moving, but the tub is not turning and again there is the metal grinding noise.

This sounds like the exact thing that happened to mine. Google something to the effect of "how to remove front panel of xxxxxxx washing machine". You will either need a new clutch clip or re-bend the old.

Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!

My washer wont spin


Your symptoms that indicates a broken motor coupler. If your washer will drain and fill but has not agitation action or spinning action that would indicate a broken motor coupler. The motor coupler links the drive motor to the transmission.

Washer make a clicking noise


Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.
