When the machine agitates, it stops working. The belt has a lot of tension at this point.

stops working?? does it trip shutdown what
your info is far too sparse to make any definitive view
if the belt and rotors gears {egg gear} has failed
you would hear it grinding

so can you hear the motor running
ie youll hear the water circulation motor pump
usually one motor is used for both
if this is the case and the motor runs then its the gear system thats wrong
check the agitator motor start up capacitor hasnt failed
the info you give isnt good enough

I used 2 quartz of Clorox bleach running a full load without clothes. After that the odor has gone for good. Try that.

The water valve is either faulty or clogged. Remove the hoses and check the screen in the water valve on the back of the machine.

You can do one or 2 things. Drain the machine, disconnect the pressure tube going to the level switch and reconnect it. Check the actual switch itself and make sure it is working and also check that it hasnt fallen off and shorted itself against the frame of the washing machine. I see these switches fall off inside a lot.

On a modern washer there will be an Engineers Program which is invoked by a key combination press. You can control all the functions from there and do tests. 1200 rpm is the Ideal speed for a washing machine for good reasons... Ask any Woman this !!
Google your Model with Engineer Program etc.

We have a range of Service Manuals at: www.spotless-service.com and adding many new ones everyday.
