The machine will not agitate. The belt is good and does not slip. The motor is humming, and seems to be trying to run, but something seems to be stuck.

Unplug the machine undo the belt. Turn the big plastic pulley int he middle counter clockwise if it turns freely with no noise then transmission is fine. Then check to see if the pump pulley movesfreely. If it does then you have a bad motor. Any noises before this problem?

Washing machine fills and agitates but won't spin or drain, just hums.


When the machine beeps it is giving you a code with the 8 wash progress lights along the top. Some will be on some will be off. With OFF = Zero and On = 1 Can you give me the 8 digit code. An example is (01001001) It is normal for the pump motor to get very very warm. Make sure you can spin the pump impeller easily.

The burnt plastic smell is probably the belt that drives the agitator. There may be something stuck (wrapped) around the shaft under the agitator that tightens the gears so the belt just slips and heats up. Remove the agitator and make sure the shaft is clear. also if it is belt and gear driven, check the gears. This means removing a panel or turning the unit sideways to inspect from below. The hum is the motor either not turning or turning with the belt too tight.
Hope this helps...

I have an older top load whirlpool ultimate care II washer and during wash cycle it's as if the agitator is slipping and I can hear it as well. Help!! How can I fix it before it's too late!?


lift the agitator out and check the drive block-it probably shot-the humming is the motor running and not hooked up to the tub-cheers Denny p s keeping your old machine runninng is probably more desirable than buying something new that won't work as good

Wwont agitate


In the circuit there is a module that works the agitation of the machine . It is an electronic device that moves the motor back and forth producing the agitation and is not connected to any other operation. Have it checked by a washing machine mechanic for failure.

Whirlpool washer sm 8280867 - agitator wont turn but sounds like motor does?


sounds like the drive belt has slipped off. Does it try to go through a full cycle? Can you manually rotate the agitator or is it seized. Is the electric motor running, or does it just hum? empty the drum, unplug it and open up the back. Look for a belt that is hanging. Good luck

Why won't the Kenmore top loading washing machine agitate?


There are two types of Kenmore top loading washing machines. The direct drive models and the belt drive models. Direct drive models do not have a back access panel and the water inlet valve is located on the left side viewed from the rear while belt drive models do have back access panel and the water inlet valve is located on the right side viewed from the rear.

The most common problem causing a top loading machine not to agitate, particularly when the motor seems running, is a broken motor coupler for direct drive models and a broken or worn out drive belt for belt drive models.

The best way to exactly determine the cause is to access the drive motor. Open the back access panel for belt drive models and check the drive belt. Check the drive motor if it is running, humming or stuck.

Please indicate the model number of the washing machine if it is a direct drive model for the procedure in accessing drive motor.

My washer agitates but does not spin


Hi,
You have given a brief expansion of your problem first of thanks for that ,you have seen that motor is running but it slips kindly remove the belt from motor to mechanism and try to rotate through hands if moves freely means you mechanism is fine otherwise you are suppose to change the mechanism
You have told that you have seen some smoking problem as well so check the motor individually then fix it. if you found motor is also problem kindly replace the motor

Check the belt idler wheel by the motor. You may have to apply a little pressure to this wheel to see if the belt stops slipping. Keep in mind that the belt may be worn or stretched
