Agitator slipping During wash and rinse cycles the agitator slips like it is stripped. It also routinely is off balance and spins out of balance. My wife says washing machines are the easiest to fix, we'll see. Thanks for the help.

Replace the coupler. It is located between the motor and the transmission. I think it retails at about $8.00.

It spins during rinse cycle but the clothes don't spin dry. Still very wet, even after a second spin without any more water being added.


It may not be spinning fast enough. Is the agitator operating at normal speed?

Possible causes for slow spin are overloaded washer, slipping belt, bad bearings in the motor or clutch, or slipping clutch.

Another possibility is a problem with the pump, but I suppose you would also see some water left in the bottom of the machine in that case.

Loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds like agitator is slipping,then banging. No noise during spinning cycles.


Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

This is your Agitator:

It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Spin cycle is off balance washing machine is


i dont believe it is the agitator per say. Assuming this problem has just started and doesnt have transportation bolts still attatched. Two conditions cause the imballance. 1)(if unit is a top loader) Check if all 4 shock absorber springs are well lubricated and not sticking. 2)A more involved problem which often happens, Underneath the washer, is the drive motor. on the motor, is a round pulley. this pulley needs to come off and strip further until you see a long spring. If it is not broken, clean it up using a solvent and a rag. reassemble and test. (if spring is defective, it will slip instead of grip on a spin cycle.

Squeal that sounds like belt spippage


The motor slides back and forth so there is know way to tighten the belt.The new  belt is needed if your old one shows any ware or if has shiny look to it which would mean its been getting hot and slipping.
