My top-load stacked frigidaire gallery series washer isn't working properly. It fills with water just fine but then it starts making a humming noise every few seconds like it's trying to start agitating, but then it doesn't end up doing anything. So if I turn the knob to drain it will drain and then spin dry normally. But why won't it agitate? The lid switch is fine, the belt is fine. I've opened the washer to check. The problem seems to be that the drum will spin one way, but not the other as it needs to in agitate mode. Does anyone know what's wrong and how I can fix it? Thank you

The model number is GCET1031FS2, I think. I found that model number inside the door of the dryer, I couldn't find it anywhere on the washer and they're stacked.

See if you can remove this:

There will be a bolt in the centre - I have seen items get caught underneath and lock it up - if it still refuses to run in wash with the agitator removed, then I'm afraid it could be curtains for your transmission :sad:

Okay thank you *high five*. I'm going to see if I can get that thing off, I'll have to find the right tools first. I hope it's just something caught in it!

I have seen coins (quarters) get flipped up on edge and wedge between the tub and agitator, temporarily seizes transmission
