Washer fill with water model # LA4800XTW0 then just sits there no agiate no spin water will then drain once switch is manually advanced. Lid switch problem? OR direct motor coupler?


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, if you mean manually advancing the timer it will drain, it's a coupler. If you mean manually activating the lid switch, it is the lid switch or lid switch strike.


( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...based on the model provided, it cover's yours)


Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

The agitator does not spin during a wash cycle and the machine makes a noise that seems like its spinning but not connecting with the agitator. Maybe a broken gear of some sort? How do I take the unit...


This is usually caused by the motor coupler. This is very inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru this disassembling and replacing a motor coupler in a direct drive machine. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for your specific model to get diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Will not agitate or spin


On Whirlpool brand made machines the drive coupler between the motor and the transmission is probably stripped out or broken and needs to be replaced.

Keep in mind that Whirlpool also manufactures: Estate, Roper, Kitchen Aid, some Kirkland and some Kenmore washers. All have the same coupler that gets stressed and breaks. A cause for this often times is overloading the machine.

After inspecting and finding the problem, make sure you have the model number and call your local appliance parts store or repair center and they probably have your part in stock.


Repairing a stripped out coupler is pretty easy for the doit yourselfer.

I suggest watching this video before attempting the repair:

What can the problem be when the agitator and tub do not spin or agitate? the washer fills with water, but agitator will not agitate and tub will not move. there is just a humming noise


Well, this is one of those times when it is important to note what brand of washer you have.
The fact that you hear something humming tells me that the motor is turning and that tells me the lid switch is activated and functioning correctly

If it is a whirlpool brand made machine the drive coupler between the motor and the transmission is probably stripped out or broken and needs to be replaced.
Keep in mind that Whirlpool also manufactures : Estate, Roper, Kitchen Aid, some Kirkland and some Kenmore washers. All have the same coupler that gets stressed and breaks. A cause for this is often times is overloading the machine.
Most other brands use a belt drive system and the belt probably burnt in two or broke. Again the cause in most cases is overloading.

Water fills up, nothing happens at all until the end of the cycle and the water drains. Fixable?


Maytags have both belt and direct drive washers. UNPLUG machine. No numbers for model... If it is a belt drive machine you should inspect the belt for damages (broken, worn out or off the pulleys) and tension replace if needed. If it is a direct drive it is probably the drive coupler. From below you can remove the pump and motor by removing the strapps that clamp them together. pump first, they just pull off after unstrapping them. The coupler has three parts and comes as a repair kit. The coupler prongs and or the rubber should be obviously broken or worn out if it is the problem. Replace with new parts and reassemble... Yes fixable in about an hour. Online parts for about $14.00.

Clothes washer just makes a noise like a gear spinning ?


I was having the same problem with mine so I took it apart. There is a plastic coupler-like device that connects the drive motor to shaft which allows your "spin" cycle to commence. This coupler has posts in side it but they are under the little belt. My posts were all broken so the bottom piece of the coupler was spinning but the top was not, so it just made a humming noise. This part is available at
