SOURCE: roper washer wont spin or agitate.

It sounds like you have a broken coupler. (a hybrid plastic/ rubber gear that acts as part gear, part shock absorber). To verify this, first unplug your washer. Pull it forward slightly and tilt it back about 6". Use a flash light to show you the underneath side. You will likely see black shavings, peices of white plastic, or possibly even a mangled chunk of black rubber. This is what is left of your coupler. If ou are able to verify this, grab your model number( the one supplied [ras6223kq] does not come up aa a vailid number). Just lift the lid and look towards the rear where the lid and top of the unit meet. In the center where they meet you should see a plaque with your model number in it. Once you have your replacement coupler, here's how you replace it. 1st - Unplug the unit. Next, open your console. The most common ways to do this are either 2 phillips screws on the back of the console where it meets the top of the washer on the right and left hand sides or there are 2 cosmetic caps on the front of the console. Once you remove the caps, you will find 2 phillips screws to remove. Once the screws are out, pull the bottom of the console towards the front and swing it up. (it should be hinged). Underneath, you fill find 2 large brass colored clips. Find the area where the clips go into the top of of the unit. Use a large screwdriver to simultaniously push down and push the handle towards the back of the unit. This will let the clips out. Now, open the lid and grab the opening for the clothes and pull it towards you while placing your foot at the bottom center to keep it in place. Once you reach about 45 degrees forward, let both the bottom and the top come forward slowly at the same time. Now with the cabinet out of the way, look towards the bottom center of the machine. You should see a white piece of plastic with two black hoses connected. That is your pump. Pry off the two clips holding it on. Underneath is your motor. On the right hand side there is a wire harness. Follow the 2 red wires. This is your capaicitor. If you touch the metal parts is can kill you. So, pull the wires off, then touch a large screwdriver across the two metal plugs where the wires just were. It is now safe. Unplug the rest of the wires where they connect to the motor. There are 2 more clips keeping the motor in place. First remove the screws (they will be either 5/16 or 1/4" screws). Then again pry the clips off. There is a shaft on the back of the motor and a matching shaft behind it on the transmission. Remove any remaining coupler pieces. (you may have to pry or break off the remianing pieces) Take the new parts and press them on the shafts (I find using a spark plug socket and a hammer to press it on works best). Now re-assemble in reverse. If you didn't have the shavings or run in to any other problems, drop me a note back.

SOURCE: MAGIC CHEF 5 YRS OLD WONT AGITATE

Ours started doing the very same thing. I took the top off and found that a mouse had chewed a hole in the vacuum tube. I replaced it with a 3/16" ID small engine gas line hose I bought at local implement dealer. Works like a charm.

SOURCE: clacking sound on agitate cycle only, no noise on spin

Jake,
This specific model uses a brake package that is giving you both noises.
Replacing the brake package will take care of it.
That washer is a jewel - they don't make them like that anymore.
Good luck!

Clacking sound on agitate cycle only, no noise on spin


The agitate cycle uses the motor and a spring to function. The spring is made in pieces and asit gets older some of the sections of the spring break. To verify that it is not a loose drum. Ope the washer during the wash cycle andhold the drun by hand. If the noise stops lool for the loose bolts or replace the springs, they may be weak after that many years.
Good luck!

Ge top loader washer agitator does not work


To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

The 7kg hoover will wash then stop agitating


There can be many reasons why the machine does not agitate. If it does not complete the cycle, then it can be a problem with the timer control, see The cycle doesn't advance .
If cycle goes on, but does not agitate, it can be the agitator and more, see It doesn't agitate or There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate

6kg Load Button


For a full load within 6kgs you dont do anything, just let it go thru the cycles. But when your load is half - you press the half load button. Good luck.
