Does not agitate

You may have possibly overloaded your washer, throwing the barrel, and or agitator out of whack, that should be a fairly easy fix. It may just be loose, or there could possibly be something small jammed underneath the agitator itself. Try teoubleshooting or online before you call a repairman

Simpson Encore 605 agitator bolt comes loose - does it need loctite?

The wear is preventing it from tightening correctly, loctite won't be a long term fix, it will still come loose again due to the forces put on the bolt by the vibrations of the agitator. The only way to fix it is to replace the agitator.

I have a GE washer model# whdrr418e1ww, it stopped agitating. It fills with water and runs through all the cycles fine. during the agitating cyle the motor is running and the belt is moving but the...

Under the agitator is a drive block made of plastic. It is built to receive the transmission shaft spline. With age the drive block wears smooth and the shaft can no longer cause agitation. Yank off the agitator and the drive block is right there. A new bolt comes with the drive block or sometimes called a drive bell.ee76b0d.jpgf93262b.jpg

Fills with Water but, that is it

If a machine spins and drains, but won't agitate, that sounds like a timer control problem. Wires can come loose or burn up, but that's not as common as a failed contact. If the machine won't agitate or spin, that could be a lid switch problem, which is real easy to fix.

Agitator problem

Check and see if it spins freely in both directions. If it does, this means that your "dogs" are worn out in the top agitator. This is an easy fix. You just get the new ones (usually 10$ or less), pull the top cover off the agitator, then pull the center cap off inside of the agitator. Then you just remove the center bolt and pull the whole top agitator off. You will see the 4 plastic dogs right on the top of the agitator.

I have a Whirlpool Model# LSQ7030LQ0 washing machine. The washer is making a lot of noise and the agititator seems loose and is flopping around as it turns. If I grab on to the agitator I can stop it...

This "MAY" be an easy fix,

I have seen the main bolt that fixes the agitator to the drive shaft come loose.

If you can imagine the agitator as a cone, the top point of the agitator is a cap that should pull or clip off. If so, using a long extention shaft and a socket set, you should be able to tighten up the bolt.

Good luck and post back results

Adjetator (sp) isn't spinning properly .

The agitator dogs (little dog ear gears) are stripped. This is a very easy fix and the new dogs are very cheap. Go down to an appliance part store and ask them for agitator dogs for a direct drive whirlpool washer. Ill help too with installtion
