My ge wpsf4170 top load washer agitator spins but the drum itself stays stationary.

If the drum spins but the agitator doesn't agitate then its the dog(lil arm things) that grab the agitator ridges to work. If the drum doesn't spin at all its the belt under the drum. it's either broke the belt or has worn and slipped off or the drum was way off balance and kicked it off(belt) . way cheaper to fix either than buy new and most new ones have no agitator anymore so how does it clean better? In my opinion, they don't so I get the parts online at repair clinic and do it my self. Sorry Maytag Repair man. But I saved a lot

Sounds like a jet plane taking off when it spins, I think I got in 2003 Also the top of the agitator wont stay on

Has it always sounded like a jet plane? If it has. Then who installed your new washing machine didn't disengaged the two counter weight inside the washing machine. There two concert block or plastic block inside the washing machine. Each block is attached to one end of counter blanching bar which has some spring attached to them. During manufacturing these weights are tied down for shipment. During installation the ties are removed then the washing machine can be leveled.

Counter weights are used to off set the uneven load in the tub. That way the washing will not start walking in the house. Side load washing machine use a plastic donut the fits around the drum and it fill with fluid for counter weight.

Now the cap of the agitator, it broken. The locking tabs are broke off. needs to replace. I hope you said the top of the agitator and not the agitator is coming out. If it is, you got major problems. stewbison

My plastic drum seal on my Whirlpool duet front-loading washer is chipping apart. The drum doesn't run true, is wobbly and has a rhythmic rub when turning. How do I replace the drum seal? Model GHW9100LW.

You have more serious problem than just your drum seal. The support arms in the wash tub are broken. The wash tub should always spin true. When it wobbles it is a sure sign that the suport arms or spider arms are broken. It is an expensive repair since the wash drum, the outer plastic tub and the door seal need to be replaced. Check your warranty, to see if some of these repairs can be covered. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace it. Sorry.

The drum won't spin-

the drum wont spinn with wate in it(very fast anyway). if you remove the agitator, the inner tub lifts right out(its a floating basket) perhaps an article of clothes has gotten below it preventing free floating of the tub. While out ive als seen where the metal spline/shaft has worn down the plastic counterpart and the tub has nothing to grabonto to allw to spin, the sppline and plastic counterpart are very apparent after removing the agitator, they sell a spline repair kit(new spline and holder (3 screws) easy repair.

Were do i buy an plastic object?

Dear Customer,
The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. To remove your spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.
The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly.
Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some Maytags may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

How to remove drum from any washing machine?

with the agitator out look near the bottom for a large flat nut with notches in it. a correct spanner wrench will engage this notched nut so you can unscrew it and the tub should come right out.
