    Estate washer not agitating properly

    Hello, My Estate washer is not agitating correctly, and I'm not sure what's wrong. I went to put laundry in the dryer the other day, and noticed that some of the towels were wrapped around the agitator in an odd way that I've not seen before. I assumed it was a fluke, and put in another load...

    Whirlpool top load clicking/grinding noise during agitation cycle - Model WTW5100HW2

    My washer just started making a clicking/grinding noise during the agitation cycle. It will continue to wash, but the noise is unbearable. During the spin cycle, it is just a quieter clicking noise. I've attached videos w/audio of both cycles. Thoughts?

    Maytag MCT Top Load Washer MVWX655DW gear shaft fused to plastic?

    The agitator stopped working about a month ago on our 4.5 year old washer. When the Maytag authorized technician came out he said he couldn't see what the problem was because he could not get the bolt out of the agitator plate. Long story short, we soaked it in clr and he came back. Got the bolt...

    Maytag Washer MVWC300VW1 Agitator Drive Shaft Spins Freely

    My agitator is not working and spins freely so I went through the checklist of stuff I could find on the forums and here's where I'm at: 1. It's direct drive, no belt to fail 2. The teeth between the top of the shaft that go to the agitator itself are not worn (they're actually metal), manually...

    Whirlpool Washer WTW5000DW3 Washplate/Agitator Swap???

    We have a brand new WTW5000DW3 with a washplate and I swear this washer doesn't clean worth a damn even though everything is working as designed. I've had topload washers in the past that cleaned great, but they had the traditional agitator. I'm sure it's possible (pending splines/dimensions)...

    Maytag Washer PAV3360AWW - grinding noise on agitation

    We got this unit with our house and it's been fine, occasionally unbalancing, and a few days ago suddenly developed a loud grinding noise during agitation. This seemed to be associated with less or no agitation as well. The unit spins absolutely fine, and drains, no extra noise. I pulled apart...

Blew air into pressure valve and hear switch click so i think good there. No blinking diag lights on motor - so questioning if thermal fuse is blown. Read that some newer...
