Correspondingly, what causes a washer not to agitate or spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drive washing machines do not have belts.) 1 Check the washing machine's spin cycle. If this works, the motor is operating and the belt is not broken.
Additionally, are washers without agitators good? Despite the potential risk in damaging clothes, top load washers with agitators provide a better cleaning performance. Whereas, top load washers with no agitator may be more gentle to clothes, they really arent as effective at cleaning clothes compared to top load washers with an agitator.
Also asked, why won't my Kenmore washer agitate?
If the washer won't agitate the drive block or bell might be worn out or broken. The drive block connects the washer transmission to the agitator, if it's worn out the transmission shaft will still move back and forth but the agitator will either stay still or move slightly.
Is the agitator supposed to spin?
The agitator is a small piece that sits in the center of your washing machine. When the unit is turned on, it will spin in a clockwise motion to help circulate water throughout. Unfortunately, however, it's all too common for the agitator to break or stop working properly.
