Old timer?
« on: June 06, 2009, 05:30:22 PM »
Hello,
  Whirlpool washer will fast agitate on most cycles, but will only regular agitate every once in a while.  If it is something wrong with the timer, is there a temporary fix that isn't too difficult?  Thanks.

Model LT5000XVW0

I wish mine would fast agitate all through the cycle.

Yep, that would be a good thing!  Washer will fast agitate when it is supposed to and just sits there when it is supposed to normal agitate.  It is wearing through clothes like a new puppy and that is getting a little "agitating".  Any suggestions for a temporary fix would be appreciated, washer has a limping lid switch now it may have an old timer.  Whatever works is good enough.  Thank you!

either you have a bad timer or a bad motor winding. if it was me I would change out motors with a spare I always keep around but you don't have that luxury.
