Washing Machine will not agitate

All cycles with the exception of the agitator operate properly, but the agitator will not work. Where is the agitator solenoid located? Do you have to remove the tub in order to access the agitator? Thankyou

    Washer try to agitate and then motor get hot and stop and then again it tries to do the same thing every minute or so. At the bottom of the washer I see lot of greese/thick oily substance. Is this coming from transmission and whether it is bad transmission that is why the washer does not agitate. Rest everything works fine.

He 4.6 cu. Ft. Washer with a material coming up from under neath the agitator

If you're noticing material coming up from underneath the agitator in your HE 4.6 cu. ft. washer, there could be a few reasons for this issue. It's important to address the problem to ensure proper functioning of the washing machine. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially resolve the issue:
1. **Check for Loose Items:** Sometimes, small items like socks or undergarments can get caught under the agitator during the wash cycle. This can cause them to be pushed up and visible. Carefully remove the agitator and check for any foreign objects underneath.
2. **Inspect Agitator Components:** Some washing machines have removable agitator components, such as a fabric softener dispenser or a cap covering the center of the agitator. Check if any of these components are loose or damaged, causing material to come up from underneath.
3. **Agitator Dogs or Cogs:** Some agitators have agitator dogs or cogs that help move the agitator in different directions during the wash cycle. If these dogs are worn out or damaged, they might not grip the agitator properly, leading to material coming up from underneath. Replace the agitator dogs if necessary.
4. **Excessive Vibration:** If the washing machine is experiencing excessive vibration during the spin cycle, it could cause material to be pushed up from underneath the agitator. Check if the machine is level and properly balanced.
5. **Worn Agitator Splines:** The connection between the agitator and the agitator shaft might have worn splines, causing the agitator to move unevenly and allow material to come up from underneath. In this case, you might need to replace the agitator or the agitator assembly.
6. **Inspect the Tub Seal:** Check the tub seal, which is located between the agitator and the inner tub. If the seal is damaged or worn, it could allow water and debris to enter the space underneath the agitator.
7. **Professional Inspection:** If you're unable to determine the cause of the material coming up from under the agitator, or if the issue persists after troubleshooting, it's recommended to contact a professional appliance technician. They can perform a thorough inspection and provide a proper diagnosis.
Remember, working with washing machine components requires caution and sometimes specialized tools. If you're unsure about any aspect of troubleshooting or repair, it's best to seek professional assistance to avoid causing further damage or compromising safety.

My Maytag Heavy duty 4 speed select, 10 cycle washing machine agitates while in spin cycle why?

If your Maytag washing machine is agitating during the spin cycle, it could be due to a few different issues. Here are some possible causes:
  1. Defective Transmission: The transmission in the washing machine is responsible for shifting the agitator and the drum between the spin and agitation cycles. If the transmission is defective, it may not be able to engage or disengage the agitator properly, causing it to spin during the spin cycle.
  2. Worn Drive Belt: The drive belt connects the motor to the transmission and helps to control the speed and direction of the agitator and drum. If the belt is worn or damaged, it may not be able to properly control the agitator, causing it to spin during the spin cycle.
  3. Malfunctioning Clutch: The clutch in the washing machine helps to regulate the spin and agitation cycles. If the clutch is not functioning properly, it may not be able to disengage the agitator during the spin cycle, causing it to spin along with the drum.
  4. Faulty Timer: The timer controls the various cycles and functions of the washing machine, including the spin and agitation cycles. If the timer is faulty, it may not be able to properly sequence the cycles, causing the agitator to spin during the spin cycle.
It's best to have a professional technician inspect and diagnose the issue to determine the exact cause and the necessary repairs.

Will not spin or agitate

All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Won't spin

Faulty Direct Drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)

The Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken.
Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive 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.

It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.
