Washing Machine wont spin or agitate

I have a 7 year old Simpson (Esprit750) washing machine. For the past few months it wouldn't agitate. I could overcome the problem by turning the setting dial 360 degrees 1 or two or ten times and it would eventually continue with the cycle. Today it won't agitate or spin. Everything else seems to be in order (the pump is pumping and the machine sounds like it is trying to agitate and spin) spray rinse still works etc. I think I could fix this problem myself with the right parts and advice. Any suggestions?

That sounds like a mechanical problem. either a worn bearing, belt, motor couplin, or bad gearbox.
This is going to be a very involved job.

One of the shoelace managed to stuck down the agitator. Even though I took the bolt in the middle out, I still couldn't take the agitator out.


With the bolt out the agitator should just pull up and out. Sometimes they are stuck on the shaft & you have to pull and try to move side to side to get them off. On a few occasions I have struck some that some fool has super glued them on to the shaft. In those cases I have had to break the agitator and install a new one. Just cut the shoe lace. It should be okay.

Simpson esprit 450 washing machine. Sometimes it will do the final spin and othertimes not spin at all. The machine is 11yrs old.


Probably a timer problem but you need fault finding knowledge and a test meter to find the fault. There are a few other reasons to not spin. You haven't said if you have a test meter or fault finding skills.

I have a SIMPSON ENCORE 555 heavy duty washing machine. It will do a normal wash cycle, but when it comes to the spin cycle, it doesn't distribute the washing around the drum and hence won't spin. any...


Hi just read your posting.Now does the washing tangle around the agitator?In your posting you mentioned the washing not distributing around the drum.Could you confirm that your machine is a top loader for me,because the word "drum and distribute" are terms for a front loader.If your machine is a top loader which I think it is then the problem could be your brake arm or spin coil is not operating.Please reply and let me know if the clothes are tangling around the agitator.Looking forward to your reply.
