Complaint: No agitation in wash cycle. Symptoms arose recently. All other functions are operable and normal
Motor: Replaced about one year ago due to bearing failure. Motor runs in spin cycle. Motor OK.
Lid Switch: Replaced within last 12 months. Spin cycle works, stops when lid open, lid switch OK.
Motor coupler: Replaced a little over a year ago. Motor spins drum in spin cycle. Coupler OK
Cycle switch: Recently replaced with new part, no change.
Timer: Just replaced with used part. No change, unlikely that defective part would have same defect.
Case, mounting springs, all OK.
All components perfectly functioning.
Inspected and cleaned wiring connections to motor, no signs of arcing, no signs of damaged wiring.

Why won’t this agitate?

Who is the best at Diagnosis?
Eric!
But he left because Rick told him to jump into a lake!!

Complaint: No agitation in wash cycle.
What happens instead? Motor/machine running? Dead in the agitation mode? 1/2 of the agitator only wokrs?

Motor does not turn on in wash mode, as if it receives no power then. From the circuit diagram it appears that Wht-Violet and Wht-Orange wires send power to it at that point, but they look good.

I found:
110.26932690 110.26932691

Motor does not turn on in wash mode
The filling occurs? To the correct level? The timer advances?
After the water fills the WLC ( pressure switch ) is suppose to shut off the power to the fill valve and redirects the power to the timer so the motor can start.
The filling is ok? The WLC is ok?

Water fills to correct desired level and fill shuts off. Timer advances normally. Motor does not run during agitation cycle, but runs for spin cycle.

In both wash and rinse?
Speed/cycle switch ( if used ), motor, timer, wiring between any of these would be the prime suspects.

Did you recheck?

Motor runs in spin cycle. Motor OK.
Not necessarily, this is a forward reversing motor....runs in one direction to wash and in the opposite or other direction to spin.
