Most Frequent Causes for Washer won't agitate

Cause 1Drive Block or Bell

The drive block connects the washer transmission to the agitator. If the drive block is worn out, the transmission shaft will still move back and forth, but the agitator will only move slightly or will not move at all. Inspect the drive block for damage. If the drive block is worn out, stripped, or damaged, replace it.

If the drive motor hums but doesn’t run, is noisy, or does not turn freely, replace it.
