Washer agitates while spinning

6 posts in this topic

My Kenmore Elite Model 11024942300 washer agitates during the spin cycle. Clothes get stuck in the agitator & it stops spinning. The problem caused the coupler to crack, and I already replaced that. How can I test to see if it's the transmission, clutch or brake?

 

I can wash small loads of clothes if I pull out the agitator right after the wash cycle (I have the screw out so I just lift it out), which is helpful as my 6yr old is sick and in vomit mode. But please help so I can order the right part I need... thanks!

Sounds like a bad transmission which will cause the coupler to break. A replacement transmission cost under 200.00. This washer is worth repairing.

Thank you both! I'm considering repairing it or buying a 1yr old GE Profile for $150 instead since this washer is 10+yrs old now.
