The agitator is only working in one direction so the washing is getting tangled


The top portion of the wash tub agitator is designed to rotate in the clockwise direction. It should be intermittent. Turn stop turn stop ....in its normal operation.

There is a set of plastic cams that allow for this function. Below the top agitator the lower agitator goes back and forth. With a short load the water just reaches the upper agitator. Try short load. Other possibility the tub is under filled try increasing the water level.

Maytag Atlantis Model 8551AWW washing machine...fills up with water...then starts the agitation cycle and will agitate for about 1 minute...then shuts off...after about five minutes the agitation cycle...


1
Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.
2
Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.
3
Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.
4
Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.
5
Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.
6
Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Machine fills up with water then when its suppose to agitate it just stops working will turn timer & push knob in & out & reset then it will work


How long do you let it sit after the water fills up, somtimes the timer will take a little extra time to get to the point that starts the agitation cycle.
When it dose this, without pulling the knob out, turn the disk on the timer clockwise 1 click and see if it starts up agitating, if it dose dont worry about it it is normal

Lint on dark clothes


no product i know of , try running machine without cloths with hot water and a lot of extra soap the unrestricted water movement and extra soap lubricates and helps to flush machine out, let machine dishcharge into bucket and if poor flow or lots of debris run again and see if this clears up you issue

-no agitation


Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate
.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.


If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

GE WBXR2060V1WW won't agitate...


There's a part under the agitator(which lifts off if you pull up from the bottom evenly on two sides) called the "Air Bell Coupler" that attaches to a metal toothed motor shaft with one bolt. More than likely the plastic teeth have stripped off from this coupler, preventing it from sitting tightly on the shaft, thus causing the agitator to not "agitate" properly. You can get this from www.partselect.com. PS1517844 KIT - AGITATOR COUPLING
Cost is $7.15 plus shipping.

Good luck!
