Kenmore Stacked W/D 417.97822701 Washer won't agitate.

5 posts in this topic

Wash runs thru cycles and everything works but the agitate cycle. Motor runs during agitate cycle. If I push down on it from inside the drum I can feel it trying to agitate. Maybe the drive bell? How hard to replace?

Thanks!

Remove the front panel and watch while it agitates - is the belt turning the transmission pulley ? If so, remove agitator and see if shaft is rotating - if not, tranny

Thanks for the reply.

Belt is turning. I removed agitator. Shaft rotates without agitator but I can hold the shaftwith my fingers and it will stop.

I would guess tranny then??
