On my washer on spin cycle, the agitator spins off balance and my washer moves around my garage. What is the part called that I need to replace?
Answer Hello Justin,
If we could ask you to please re-post with the model number from your units' I.D. tag, we can look it up and give you a good diagnosis and part numbers. The first thing I would check on a top load Whirlpool Direct drive is the skate plate 3946509. This is assuming your model number is this configuration.
I hear a noise (like something wearing out) when washer is running. Only during the agitating time. I believe it maybe the Direct drive washer motor coupling problem. What's your thoughts?
The issue could be the motor coupler that is bad but normally would have issue during the spin as well. The most likely cause of the issue would be worn out agitator dogs or agitator cam.
Where is the lint filter on this modle?
Answer Hello Ct338. This model does not list a filter on the unit.
How to remove the agitator? The nut won't move after you take out the middle cap that exposes the nut.
Answer Hello Laurie. Yes, the nut unscrews out of the unit. It may be stuck, but it should unscrew out of the unit.
The washer does not spin the water out of the clothes.
Answer Hello Chuck. You need to check the thrust bearing 12002213 and see if it releasing the brake when you turn it by hand. If not, replace the thrust bearing kit on the unit.
