slow agitator

4 posts in this topic

Great website before I begin!!!!  Ok, my agitator spins just fine during the spin cycle but during the wash cycle it moves slow as molasses :shock:.  Should I try to change the belts to fix it or does it sound like another problem is 'a brewing?  Thanks

The range of possibilities is as wide, tall, and high-- all depends on the brand and model number of your washer.

Oh yeah.  Might be a worn belt set:  pump belt and drive belt.  If the sidewalls of either are smooth or glazed, replace both as a set.

The motor mount could be gunked up and binding or have a broken spring. 

Remove that front panel and have a look.
