Need to know what brand washer?

IF THE WASHER MOTOR DOESN'T RUN DURING THE TIME IT IS SUPPOSED TO AGITATE, THE PROBLEM COULD BE IN THE TIMER, NOT POWERING UP THE MOTOR TO WASH.

IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING, BUT NO AGITATION, THE PROBLEM COULD BE IN THE TRANSMISSION OR THE AGITATOR ITSELF. G.E. HAD A PROBLEM OF THE SPLINES WEARING OUT ON THE AGITATOR SO THE SHAFT WOULD ROTATE INSIDE THE AGITATOR AND THE AGITATOR WOULD NOT MOVE WITH IT.

Front load washer, try to spin, but stops altogether and want wash it fills up but want wash


Make sure that you don't over load the washer. As it starts to spin back and forth it is sensing the load balance as the clothes fall back and forth. If it doesn't sense a balanced load because the clothes can't fall back and forth it will not start the wash process. Refuse your load and try again.

Agitator does NOT spin along w/ drum during spin cycle


If this is the old style that uses a belt, it is not worth fixing. But the problem sounds like the wig-wam is not functioning properly. Most of the time it was a wire broken since it moves back and forth constantly.

Washer will make noise while spinning. Took clothes out of machine tried to turn basket by hand. Basket will catch however it does not make any noise. If I spin clockwise it spins fairly free spin...


There is a clutch on the bottom of the washer that the tub sits in. Most likely it is wearing out. The machine will get worse, as if the tub is out of balance.

Waher won't spin


Either a bad lid switch or a bad direct drive coupling or a bad timer.
Fill the machine with water. In the wash mode observe the agitator. Is it moving back and forth? If no, replace the direct drive coupling.
If yes, it does move back and forth, with the lid closed, advance the timer to the spin cycle. If it does not spin, raise the lid then close the lid. Does it spin? If yes, replace the timer.If no, replace the lid switch..

Just spins during the wash cycle


Sounds like the agitator got dislogged during moving. In some machines the design allows for the agitator to move up and down alittle too much. Try this and this is only a guess. With the machine empty push down firmly on the agitator and move it back and forth as you do. You might hear a little "pop". If it does, try running the machine again. If it works problem solved, if not tell what happened.
