Motor on wash cycle does not spim


??? wash cycle is not suppose to spin only agitate, most machine have a dual motor function, motor runs in 1 direction for wash then in another direction for spin. do u mean it does not go into spin? if so need to check the tranny and the clutch, the motor coupler in some cases and if its not agitating washing may have bad cam dogs in agitator, or bad water pressure switch, some times a bad door switch will not allow spin or agitation?

Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle


Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

I have a kenmore model 20422991 washing machine it wont agitate spin or drain but i can here the motor running


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Your drive motor controls the spinning, agitation, and draining. Even though it is running, the transmission may be bad. Replace the motor drive if this is the case.

Fills with water..doesn't wash..drains and spins..does the transmission spin in direction and wash in the other? in other words does the motor run one direction to spin and rev. to agg/


Yes it does reverse. If the motor is running in agitate pull off the agitator and check the agitator drive (bell) (white plastic bell shaped) on top of the agitate shaft is not stripped. You should not be able to turn. To remove the agitator fill first about 8 in of hot water, drain and pull up on agitator with fingers under the bottom or a belt.

Agitator does not work


Hi,
Your motor runs in forward and reverse...the spin is one way and the agitate is the other... that direction has failed. Replace the motor...

My matag washing machine will spin but not agitate


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch Motor coupler Belts Clutch Drive motor Drive pulleys Transmission Agitator Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Won't agitate or spin


If you mean that when the unit should be agitating or spinning the motor is running, and you lift the lid causing the motor to stop running, it sounds like the coupler.
