Question about Whirlpool GSC9455 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Just spins during the wash cycle

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.

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.

My LG wf_t7050tp top loader washing machine drum not turning during wash/rinse cycle

The drum is controlled by a breaking system at the bottom of it. It is the agitator in the center that does most of the work during wash and rinse. The drum would spin very fast during spin cycle.

Check if the solenoid for brake control is working. Check that the drive belt is not sagged. It should be tensioned correctly.

WFS1073DD front load WASHING MACHINE Everything works but will not spin fast enough to spin the water out. It spins very slow

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...

Squeaking washing Machine during spin cycle

Hi
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.
OR
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.
Regards

Agitator only turns clockwise (Whirlpool top load)

You will need to replace the dogs under the agitator, they are pretty easy. Just pop the cap, take out the center bolt, remove it the dogs are 4 teeth looking items.

Need information about an old ASKO 10604 washing machine

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.

Won't hardly spin

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!

Kenmore Washing machine spins slow

If it has a speed selection switch than this switch is likely to be bad, other than that are you sure that It once has high spin in the cycle you are using??
