Many Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washers use a 2 piece agitator. There are cogs called 'dogs' or 'dog ears' and a cam between the two halves of the agitator which can wear leading to a clicking/ticking sound and reduced movement of the top agitator section during the wash cycle leading to poor cleaning results. In most cases these worn parts can be replaced without much cost or difficulty. If you have this style of washer this should help.

Dear Whitworth,

please rate this solution if it meets ur needs, else choose fixya...

The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.
Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some Maytags may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

SOURCE: GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

SOURCE: old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

I have a GE top loading washing machine. The agitator has stopped working and the drum no longer spins at the end of the cycle when the water drains. What can I do to fix it and get the agitator...


Hi,

When the agitator on your GE washing machine does not work correctly, the most likely cause is a worn drive bell. The drive bell sits on the agitator shaft inside the agitator. The shaft and the inside of the bell lock together using splines. When the splines inside the drive bell wear out, the agitator will not rotate correctly. To repair the agitator on the GE top loading washing machine, you will need to remove the agitator and the drive bell.

1. Unplug the GE washer from the wall outlet. Open the washer lid to access the agitator.
2. Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands and pull the agitator out of the washing machine. If the agitator will not budge, rent agitator hooks to pry the agitator out. Agitator hooks are available at appliance repair stores. Set the agitator hooks under the agitator and push down on the handle to pull the agitator off the shaft.
3. Pry off the plug on the top of the drive bell on the agitator shaft with a small flathead screwdriver. Use a socket wrench to remove the hex head bolt at the top of the drive bell. Carefully pull the drive bell up off of the agitator shaft. This may take some force depending on how stripped the inside of the drive bell has become.
4. Inspect the inside of the drive bell. There are splines inside the drive bell that line up with the splines on the shaft. Most often the splines inside the drive bell have worn, causing the shaft to spin but not the drive bell. Also inspect the notch on the outside of the drive bell and the notch inside the bottom of the agitator. If either of these are worn, replace the drive bell and the agitator.
5. Take the drive bell to an appliance repair shop to purchase a new part. If you need to replace the agitator, take the old one with you as well. Compare the new parts to the old ones, making sure they are identical.
6. Position the new drive bell over the agitator shaft, lining up the splines on the shaft with the splines on the inside of the drive bell. Set the securing bolt back into the top of the drive bell and tighten the bolt down until it pushes the drive bell down until the bell bottoms out. Push the new plug on the top of the agitator bell with the palm off your hand until the plug locks into place.
7. Place the agitator over the drive bell and slowly rotate the agitator until the notch inside the agitator lines up with the notch on the outside of the drive bell. Tap the top of the agitator down with the palm of your hand until the notch on the agitator locks down over the notch on the drive bell. The agitator will not bottom out flush with the tub.
8. Close the washer lid and plug the washer power cord back into the wall socket.

The defective agitator is the cause of the drum not spinning. So get the agitator fixed and it should solve the spinning problem.

Good luck.

When spinning the motor freezes up and will not spin. I released the motor and took off the belt off and the motor ran fine. However the pulley that the belt is also on will not spin the proper direction, only backwards.

The transmission pulley must turn both ways. One direction for spin and the other direction for was. If it doesn't turn in the wash direction there is a jam int the transmission. The transmission would then have to be dismantled and fixed IF IT IS WORTH ITGood luck. Try a speed queen next time......www.appliances.cjb.net

I have a ge washer. it fills up okay, but will not agitate. the water spins out okay also. and it goes through all steps but clothes were not washed due to not agitating. the model number is WCSR2090D.


If the agitator can be moved freely by hand, you probably have a stripped bell, which is the small plastic dome that the agitator is attached to. Maybe hear a grinding noise in agitation from under the agitator?


It takes a large amount of force to pull the agitator straight off to access the bell, which has one small bolt securing it to the transmission shaft.
Bell is a fairly inexpensive part. Not saying this is your problem, but would check this first, as it is a common repair.
good luck

Agitator loose


Just reach down between the basket and the agitator, and lift really hard straight up. Be sure not to hit yourself in the head when it pops loose. GE agitators just snap on to the air-bell underneith. Be sure that bell isnt loose after you remove. Good Luck!!!!

There may be nothing wrong with the splie/gearbox shaft. At the top of the agitator on the inside is a brass "dog" That may be worn and you will need to replace it.
