Ok first do you mean the agitator if this unit that we are talking about is a top load washer then you would most likely need to replace the agitator dogs here is also a video of how to replace the agitator dogs as well http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=0GQh8JLqVv8&feature=pyv&ad=5457341621&kw=agitator as to the tub not draining this would be most likely a clog where you would have to check the pump and the lines going to the pump as well to assure that there are no objects jammed in the the drain system here is a link showing how to replace the pump you would only do this if the impellar on the pump was not spining and you can actually remove the pump and see if the the impellar is spining which would tell you if your pump is good or not http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=DwV71h86Gxw&feature=pyv&ad=5457341861&kw=washing%20machine%20pump if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

It won't stay centered which is the position for the water to drain in the tub. It pops up all the time.


If you remove the two screws and pull the plate away from the tub you may find that the inner mechanism is worn, broken, or dirty. Cleaning or replacement should restore proper operation. There may be a problem with the drain plug, in which case disassembly from the back of the tub will be necessary

My LG WM2101HW front loader will not spin. It drains OK, but won't spin.


I would be leaning more in the direction of the door lock mechanism rather than the hall sensor as someone else posted. The hall sensor gives a very specific error code when it goes bad. Put the unit into a spin only cycle and verify that the door is locking. To do this power up the machine and only press spin speed and the start. It is also possible that it is a problem with any one of the three control boards that are on the unit but again, these normally present with very specific error codes. If the door is not locking, or even if it is but the switch isn't sending the signal back to the main control saying that it is locked then all it would do is drain and then spin 1/3 turns either way inside the tub until time runs out.

I have a GE Adoration WHDRE526E1WW top load washer. It drains and hits spin but will not spin. Lid switch seems to work. When tested the motor kicks on but will not turn the tub. Few times I manually spun...


It really sounds like the belt. You say it's in good shape but if it's loose or shiny from not having proper tension it wont have enough friction between the belt and pulley to actually work. If you've ever tried to move the drum when its full of clothes and water you know how much force id needed to function. Double check that belt tension and working surface.

Whirlpool duet Washing machine won't drain


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If your washer doesn't drain or spin, you may read and learn what parts may cause this. First, you will want to check your water pump. You need to make sure it is working. Make sure you check the belt on the pump. Make sure it is not broken or loose. Also, make sure your pulley is not stuck in place. Sometimes, they will stick or barely turn at all. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. If the pump, pulley, and belt are working, make sure your motor is working. You should be able to hear it if it is. If it isn't, check your lid switch. The lid switch can cause the motor to not work. It may need adjusted. If not, go ahead and change it. A bad lid switch may cause the washer to not work at all. Now, if your pump is pumping and the washer still won't spin, you will want to check your belt and clutch. Once again, the belt may be broke or loose. Check to make sure your clutch is not worn also. This may be a case of a bad lid switch again as well. You could have a bad drive motor. This is what controls spinning, draining, and agitation. You could have a broken motor coupler. Over time, they will go bad and need replaced. It is possible that your transmission is slipping or damaged. And lastly, you could have a bad basket drive or spin bearing. This is what allows the inner tub to move. If this is the case, you will probably hear loud sounds or loud banging.

Hi My mw512 fisher paykel washer won't Drain,how do i remove the drain pipe at bottom of tub? it won't seem to just pull off, des it need to be turned? cheers Michelle


I have a model 11, but I believe they are the same. The end at he outlet of the pump actually has tabs on it. Just twist and pull. Make sure the tabs are ligned up with the slots before you pull too hard.
