    I have the same problem. The agitator doesn't rotate properly, but the machine fills, does an attempt at agitating, then drains and spins.

Under the agitator, there is a plastic wheel with groove that goes on the metal shaft that is shaking the agitator to wash ur clother. On my machine, the plastic grooves are not there anymore, probably the effect of the cheap plastic rubbing on metal and that is why the agitator is not turning. Porely designed or maybe good design to make you spen money on fixing it. Just change the plastic wheel with a new one and it will start washing again.  Good luck.

    How does one gain access under the agitator? I have removed the plastic part of the agitator and have been left with a nut that no matter how hard I try I can't remove it to access what's underneath. Thanks

Simpson swt8043 top loader washing machine agitates anticlockwise only from new.


The agitator is designed to “ratchet” and turn one way but not the other. If your clothes are being twisted, that is most likely a transmission problem where it tries to agitate and spin at same time

How to remove simpson agitator>


I am not familiar with a Simpson but the nut securing the agitator is
commonly accessed by removing the fabric softener receptacle
and then a plastic cover which sits directly over the nut. If the
agitator proves difficult to remove tap a block of wood against it
and rotate upward until it releases. I hope this works for you.

Bottom rotor is not working


Hello.

Washing machines, like any other mechanical device, occasionally needs servicing. A common problem with an older washing machine is that the spinner, or agitator, stops rotating during wash cycles. Fortunately, most washing machine problems are easy to troubleshoot. Any do-it-yourselfer can fix it; here's how.

TOOLS NEEDE TO SOLVE PROBLEM ARE BELOW.

Bucket and rags,Screwdriver,New drive belt (if necessary),New drive motor (if necessary)

1 Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.

2 Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.

3 Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.

4 Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.

5 Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.

6 Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Thanks.

Agitator sounds as if it's stripped


The agitator and drive gearbox are all one part and are not serviceable (sealed), if it is the gearbox the machine is possibly scrap as the part is more expensive than a new machine. Will need further investigation.
Is the spin OK (quiet) the motor rotates one way to agitate and the other way in fast to spin, the belt may be removed at the middle pulley (Below) rotated in each direction to test. try the machine without the belt and listen to motor.

Washer is not rotating fully during wash cycle


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Some Kenmore washers have a two piece agitator. The lower section will rotate back and forth both ways.

The top section has "agitate Dogs" that allow it to rotate only one way (to keep the clothes moving downward.

If yours has a two piece agitator there shouldn't be a problem.

Tub rotates CW during agitation, out of balance, hits side of metal cabinet, but no error code



Hello srcoray,

Did you replace the clutch, just trying to get a feel for your hands on experience with the machine? If you did the work did your machine use the upper roller clutch bearing along with the clutch pulley mounted roller clutch bearing?

The FAV6800AW uses a reversing motor and motor controller that powers the motor and clutch pulley to rotate CW in Wash/Agitate cycle and CCW in Spin Cycle.

In Wash/Agitate cycle the roller clutch bearing should rotate freely CW allowing the agitator shaft to drive the transmission in wash cycle driving the tumblers to rotate only not the wash basket. In spin cycle the roller clutch bearing will lock up (one-way roller clutch bearing) driving the spinner shaft to rotate the wash basket and transmission CCW. Unless my thinking is wrong it sounds like the one way roller clutch bearing is frozen or dragging and not rotating freely in wash cycle rotating the wash basket CW. I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Just a few other questions;

If you have a load of wet clothes in the wash basket and you select Spin Only cycle will the spin cycle complete with out dc/UC errors?

With the lid raised can you rotate the wash basket CW? It should not; it should only rotate CCW and do that with very little resistance.

Agitator on my washing machine is not rotating the way it should. It seems something is not catching and the piece is only rotating part of the time.....please help. ps How do I remove the agitator to see...


Remove the cap off the top of the agitator. Then remove the 7/16 bolt below. Your problem is inside the top part of the agitator. YOu need to buy an agitator dog kit. When the part is removed you will see how to put it in.
