My washer fills up and will drain but during agitation and spin it makes a noise like it trying to do something but nothing happens. Any advice?
You will want to check the motor coupling as it sounds like the coupling may have broken and causing the unit to not agitate or spin. Since the pump is attached to the back side of the motor, this is why it will still drain.
I have a maytag centennial washer. It will go thru the wash cycle until it gets to drain and spin. I will not advance from there. We have replaced the shift actuator and the drain hose is not plugged. What is wrong??
Since the unit will not drain or spin you will want to test the lock switch solenoid and make sure that the resistance is between 85-155 ohms. If not then you would need to replace the lock assembly. Also check to make sure that the drain pump is getting power when it goes into the drain and spin and if there is power then the drain motor if not running or if running is either clogged or bad.
Washer will not spin or agitate. I have replaced the Dogs and the clutch. The coupler seems to be okay. The washer sounds like it should be spinning. It pumps down to motor is good. Any suggestions?
In most cases when the unit is not spinning or agitating but will drain and the motor is running when the unit should agitate and spin then the motor coupler would most likely be the issue.
