SOURCE: Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise

It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.

SOURCE: agitator making clicking noise when washing clothes; clothes wrapping around agitator

Hi,
If this a whirlpool brand washer, there are sone parts bad in the agitator it's self. These parts are called dogs and they make the agitator rachet so that the top half only goes one direction. Does this sound like what you are experiencing? If so, let me know and I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: agitator doesn't spin during wash cycle

If The washer won't agitate
Check to make sure no clothing got wrapped around the agitator. Check the lid switch, timer, and drive belt, other potential causes, such as a bad transmission or bad agitate/spin solenoid, but they are much more involved.
if the washer won't spin, the lid switch, timer, drive belt, transmission, or agitate/spin solenoid could be the cause here as well. Sometimes if the load is unbalanced or too heavy, the washer won't spin. Take some of the clothes out and try the spin cycle again with a lighter load.

Here are the steps to replace the agitator.
1: Take the fabric softener dispenser off and pry off the agitator lid.
2: Use a socket wrench with an extension bar to remove the stud and seal.
3: Remove the agitator top and bottom.
4: Check the agitator clutch assembly (located in the agitator top) for excessive wear.
5: To replace, just reverse the directions.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio washer # WTW8240YWW0. It will not agitate and makes a clicking noise. We ran the diagnostics and it doesn't show anything is wrong.

indicates that the agitator action or solenoid has failed --could be a broken spring
that will not show up on diagnostics other than mechanical fault

Noise from Whirlpool/Kenmore washing machines / agitator not turning

Many toploading Whirlpool (and Kenmore -- they're made by Whirlpool) washing machines have a ratcheting agitator. The agitator moves only one direction instead of back and forth. There are small pieces (called agitator dogs) that allow this to happen. However, since they are mad out of rather soft plastic, they tend to wear out. The result is a ratcheting or growling noise during agitation (wash cycle) Luckily, they are reasonably cheap (usually under $20) and relatively easy to fix. Try to turn the agitator by hand. It should turn freely one direction and not the other. If it goes both ways freely or clicks and slips one way, you need new agitator dogs. Pull the cap off of the top of the agitator (there are usually two tabs on the side that must be depressed to do this) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator. Pull out the plastic plate that is on top of the dogs (again, you may have to move two tabs to pull this out.) You should see dogs that look just like the new ones except with no teeth on them. Pull the old ones out and put the new ones in the same way. Reassembly is the same as disassembly except in reverse. It should be quieter and wash better now, as the agitator was barely turning before, if at all.

Motor on wash cycle does not spim

??? wash cycle is not suppose to spin only agitate, most machine have a dual motor function, motor runs in 1 direction for wash then in another direction for spin. do u mean it does not go into spin? if so need to check the tranny and the clutch, the motor coupler in some cases and if its not agitating washing may have bad cam dogs in agitator, or bad water pressure switch, some times a bad door switch will not allow spin or agitation?

Why does my washing machine make a clacking noise during agitation...it goes clack, clack,

Hi

Clacking noise comes when either the agitator or the transmission or clutch assembly goes bad. To check which part# has gone bad you'll have to open the unit and first check the agitator. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
