Commercial washer won’t agitate

Cause 1 – Agitator Repair Kit

If the washer won’t agitate, the problem can be solved by replacing the agitator repair kit, which contains the agitator components that are most likely to become damaged. If any of the parts are worn out or otherwise damaged, then you must replace this kit. This the first possibility if washer won’t agitate

Cause 2 – Drive Block or Bell

The drive block connects the washer transmission with the agitator. If it wears out, the transmission shaft can still move, however, the agitator will have more difficulty doing so. Examine the drive block for signs of damage. If it is worn out or otherwise damaged, then you must replace it. This a high possibility if washer won’t agitate.

Cause 3 – Motor Coupling

The motor coupling can sometimes fail. The motor coupling connects the motor with the washer transmission. When the washer overloads, the motor coupling will fail so that the transmission and motor are protected. However, it can also fail with regular use. Check the motor coupling to see whether it is damaged. If the motor coupling has become damaged, then you must replace it.

Cause 4 – Drive Belt

Check the drive belt to see whether it has broken or become loose. If the drive belt has become or is loose, then you must replace it.

The motor control board powers the motor. If the motor control board has become defective, then it is possible for the washer not to work well or at all. Examine the control board for signs of damage. To see whether the motor control board has become defective, make sure the control board is powering the motor. If it has power, but is not powering the motor, then you must replace it.

Cause 6 – Drive Motor

The drive motor could be broken. This is, however, uncommon. Check all the more commonly defective parts before replacing the drive motor. To see whether the drive motor has become defective, you have to make sure that it is receiving power. If it hums but does not turn on, makes noises, or does not turn without difficulty, then you must replace it.

Cause 7 – Door Lock

The door lock keeps the washer door shut as the machine is running. If the door lock has become damaged, the washer door will not close properly. The door lock can fail mechanically or electrically. Examine the door lock for signs of damage. If it is damaged or does not close properly, then you must replace it. You can use a multimeter to test each of the door lock switches for continuity in order to see whether or not the door lock has failed electrically.

Cause 8 – Stator Assembly

The stator works with the rotor to produce an electromagnetic field that rotates the tub. If the stator windings become damaged, then the washer will neither spin nor agitate. Examine the stator for damaged windings and other possible issues.

Cause 9 – Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly

The door lock keeps the washer door shut as the machine is running. If the door lock has become damaged, the washer door will not close properly. The door lock can fail mechanically or electrically.

You can use a multimeter to test each of the door lock switches for continuity in order to see whether or not the door lock has failed electrically. If a switch does not have continuity, then you must replace it.

Cause 10 – Rotor Assembly

The rotor works with the stator to produce an electromagnetic field that rotates the tub. If the rotor magnets become damaged, or if any part of the rotor is not working as it should be, the washer will neither spin nor agitate. To see whether the rotor has become defective, examine it for signs of damage. If the rotor has become damaged, then you must replace it.

Cause 11 – Lower Agitator

The lower agitator can become damaged or strip away where it connects with the drive system. To see whether the lower agitator is stripped inside, you must remove it from the washer and examine it for signs of damage.

Cause 14 – Washplate

If the washing machine is not agitating as it should be then the washplate could be damaged or stripped off. You can remove the agitator to examine the washplate connection point. This a low possibility if washer won’t agitate
