Washer won't agitate
« on: May 12, 2008, 12:21:15 AM »

all cycles work,fills,spins,rinses,drains but it won't agitate.Opened the front,lifted the bottom ,put a support block as to check belt tension and wear on belt.Belt has to be good cause the motor slides on the mounting plate for the cycling of rinse and spin no problem spins fine all three pulley work(metal motor,metal water pump and plastic large main pulley under drum.I tried turning the agitator aluminum housing top side of main pulley it was real hard to turn,then used pulley and belt to turn it moves a little real freely like a harmonic balancer on car engine then tightens up and pulley then turns but the agitator doesn't move. Any solutions or advice appreciated,handy but not my area of expertise. Thanks
