    Please elaborate on your symptoms a little more so I can understand how to diagnose correctly.



    Does the washer fill, then stop?

    Does it fill and make a rattling noise when attempting to agitate?

    Does it fill and make a humming noise when attempting to agitate?

    Does the washer drain after it fills?

You will need to double check the motor coupling to ensure it has not broken. You can use the following link to gain access to it:

If you inspect the coupling and it is intact, your drive motor could be seized or the start capacitor on the motor could be faulty. Let me know what you find. If you need further advice and/or parts information let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up


Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up
Nothing, I'm not sure what the problem could be because it does not happen all the time and when it does, it usually fixes itself. M# WTW57ESVW1


your water supply perhaps it is too low pressure ....

so the machine isnt filling fast enough

so check at the machine side of the cold water filler hoze
in the machine end is a filter cone
you need to carefully pull it out with flat nose pliers and clean it
if this doesnt fix it then perhaps the inlet valve is bad...

Model wdss4120aww GE Washer is leaking


If it's leaking during the agitation cycle, and only in 'large' and 'super' water levels, then that's just the way the washer is designed. I got rid of that piece of junk.

Washers are more advanced and stylish than ever before. When you're buying a washer, look for features that make washing easier and more efficient, less costly, and kinder to fabrics. Thanks to advances in technology, it's all possible - and our washer buying guide shows you how.

Washer Types
Feature options, capacity, energy use and style are all factors to consider when deciding between a front- or top-loading washer.
oth top-loading and front-loading washing machines will do a good job of cleaning your clothes. The most significant differences between these types of washers are capacity, energy efficiency, water use, feature options, and style.

Top-loading machines

Traditional top-loading washing machines are available in a wide assortment of models, price ranges and styles. The most basic top-loading washers perform very well and are generally a good value for a no-frills, clean wash. Other top-loaders offer more cycle and temperature selections, spin speeds, and fabric care extras as they increase in price. Overall, top-loading washers are generally less expensive to purchase than front-loading machines, but are slightly more costly to run because they use more water and electricity.

Most top-loaders fill the tub with enough water to cover the clothing, then agitate them to get the clothing clean. Some manufacturers now offer high-efficiency top-loading washers using a number of different technologies. One such technology is the Whirlpool® Calypso® wash plate. Instead of agitating fabrics to get them clean, the wash plate moves them through a shower of concentrated detergent and water. The action is gentler on fabrics; it's designed to provide better cleaning with far less stress to garment fibers. And with the agitator out of the way, the washer has more room to clean bulky items such as comforters and rugs.

Standard capacity for a top-loading washing machine is 12 to 16 pounds per load. The Calypso wash plate model can hold up to 18 pounds of laundry (think the equivalent of 16 pairs of jeans).

Here is a link to some Whirlpool washers for you to look over.

Washer had filled and agitated, but when went to spin produced a loud screeching noise. what might it be? this is an inglis front loader super capacity 2001.


It may be a a worn or broken drive belt.

OR

Some Whirlpool brands washing machines have a two piece agitator. The bottom is call the agitator and the top is usually referred to a 'Mover'. A multi-piece cam and bearing assembly connects the two and allows the top portion to index. If the bearing or cams become stripped or damaged, the mover will often not work and the cam parts will have to be replaced.

OR

It may be a bad motor.
Hope this helps.

Washing machine Kenmore 3.2 cu ft Super capacity plus top loader


fabi, if Im reading you right the machine fills with water and just sits there. Can you hear the motor running when it should be agitating? If so you might have a broken coupler. If the machine is quiet and just sits there, it could be the pressure switch. The first picture shows the pressure switch with the rubber hose and purple wire going to it (far left). There is no model number posted but this is a top loading Kenmore, should be close. Take the rubber tubing off the switch and blow into the switch with another piece of tubing. Does it start agitating? If so, there's your problem. If you do hear the motor running and it's not agitating it may be the motor coupler. If you need more assist...email me at catriver1@gmail.com Catriver..post back.
