Does not agitate

Machine fills, drains but the agitator does not move. I have tried moving it with my hands and it does not move at all. What is a coupler?

It's a couple of plastic drive parts connected between the motor and transmission. If it breaks the machine will not wash or spin. Very common problem in this design. Simple to fix too just remove pump and motor.

GE Washer will not agitate but it will spin


Put old coupler back on transmission shaft. Can you now turn coupler? You should not be able to. If you can, grooves in coupler are stripped out. Replace coupler. Part # WH49X10042

Kenmore 80 series, model 110-2781690, won't spin or agitate. loud clicking from lower portion of machine. fills & drains ok. transmission failure?


hi,
Unfortunately, it sounds like a transmission/gearcase problem, mainly because you stated the motor would run, but would not agitate or spin.

With the motor removed from the gearcase, try to turn the coupler on the gearcase side one way for many turns, and see if your agitator moves back and forth, then turn the coupler on the gearcase the other way many turns to see if the tub starts to move

thank you,

Kenmore Series 80 top loading washer that doesn't spin or agitate


Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!

Kemore 90 Serieswashing machine fills and spins but won't agitate


Remove the agitator and see if the agitator shaft moves during agitate. If it moves then the agitator spline is worn or the agitator dogs are worn and the top half of the agitator will not work. If no results then the gearcase would have to be replaced

Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.


No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.
