Why Won't My Washer Agitate?

You load up the dirty clothes into you washer, turn the dial, and get the load started. But when you walk by the laundry room a little while later, you don't hear the familiar sounds of the appliance agitating. Before you panic over a washing machine that's not agitating, check these easy fixes first!

  1. Make sure the appliance is getting power. Has the plug come loose from the outlet? Has the GFCI been tripped? Has the breaker in the breaker box been flipped?
  2. Make sure your machine is supposed to be agitating. Did you accidentally set it to run a soak cycle? Is it just pausing a moment before starting up it's agitation step?
  3. Make sure the lid is shut. All washing machines have a safety switch that keeps them from operating with the lid open.

If none of the above is the issue, the problem could stem from a malfunction with the belt, pulley, motor, transmission, or other part.
