My washing machine just spins in a slow circle when it's in the wash cycle. I am pretty sure that it is supposed to agitate (swish the clothes back and forth to get all the dirt out) It's doing the job as of right now - I just don't think it's washing the clothes to it's potential because it's not agitating. Can anyone explain to me what to do. It happened after I moved my washer from one apt to another. It's not even a year old. Please help. I don't want to pay for service.

Re: just spins during the wash cycle
Sounds like the agitator got dislogged during moving. In some machines the design allows for the agitator to move up and down alittle too much. Try this and this is only a guess. With the machine empty push down firmly on the agitator and move it back and forth as you do. You might hear a little "pop". If it does, try running the machine again. If it works problem solved, if not tell what happened.

Early automatic washers used a motor with multiple windings to provide the various speeds required by different parts of each wash programme. Modern washers use an entirely different sort of motor and the speeds are selected and controlled electronically with feedback to ensure the speed is correct.
I suspect the problem is the electronics - the part of the programmer and controller that regulates the motor speed but you should check the motor and motor brushes, the drive belt and all electrical connections as a matter of best practice before you spend money...
Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.
Hi there, we have a 10505 machine and the controls must me pretty much the same. The green E is "Economy" button - increases main wash length by 22 minutes so you can use cooler water. The two circles with diagonal may be a spiral with diagonal if you look real close - this is "No spin" button - no spin in any cycle. The 800 button - when pressed reduces spins speed to 800 rpm from 1000 rpm. Not sure about cold clothes though. Do you have the hot water connected? Have you got a temperature dial? If so, make sure you dial up the required temp. Good luck! Cheers, Brian.
the back and fourth motion is normal. we have a ge and it does the same thing. for the slow spin and burt rubber smell the drive belt is more than likely streched, the fast fix is to replace the belt. HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
