Whirlpool washer not agitating
« on: August 29, 2021, 12:06:06 AM »

Good evening everybody.

I have a Whirlpool HE top load (belt driven) washer, model # WTW5000DW1 that isn't agitating correctly. If you look at the video here: and click on the 6:00 minute mark. The agitator pulses 1+ revolution CW then 1+ revolution CCW. Clearly it is agitating correctly.

This is what my washer looks like: I removed the impeller and while it's dirty and cruddy under there I couldn't see anything blocking or jamming the shaft, impeller or tub. The washer drains properly and spins fast. It just won't agitate.

What should I be looking at?
