Question about Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Washer
If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, a no agitation problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem yourself and repair:
If the washer IS running, but the agitator is slipping, then you may have worn agitator dogs, or a loose agitator bolt. The following link explains what the dogs are, and how to access to acces the bolt and replace them: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. Most of these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.
Read through the information provided. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a namepate along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you. FYI: In less common situations, the problem could be related to a bad gearcase (transmission) or timer. These parts generally cost more as well. I woulkd recommend you verify the simple items first and verify your symptoms. If you need furhter guidance, let me know.
