AAV7000AWW washer agitates and spins
« on: July 30, 2012, 11:33:05 AM »
Washer agitates and spins at the same time, which tears up clothing. I was thinking that the timer is confused but changing the timer didn't fix the problem.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

This is a belt drive unit. I did NOT replace timer on this one yet.

It has something broken in the gear case. I tried to get into one that was doing the same thing but couldn't do it.

When does it spin and agitate at the same time?

All through the cycle or just during the wash or spin part of the cycle?

Let it fill with a little bit of water. Turn the timer to the spin cycle. If it drains the water out you will know it is turning in the right direction. If it agitates during this pump out the transmission is bad.

It spins and agitates in spin cycle only. Bailey hit the nail on the head...although it does pump out, it still agitates. To the scrap yard she goes.

Thanks, fellas!
