My Washer Won't Spin or Agitate
Few things are as frustrating as a washing machine filled with wet clothes not spinning or agitating. Agitation is what gets the dirt out of your clothes and spinning is what gets the dirty water out of your washing machine. So, a washer not spinning or agitating is essentially the same thing as a large bathtub in your laundry room. And if you wanted to wash your clothes in a bathtub, you wouldn't have bought a washing machine in the first place. Allow Repair Clinic to assist you in maximizing the value of your washing machine. We can help you figure out why your washer will not spin and save you money and time by showing you how to do the repair yourself. Think of us as your DIY partner in washing away your personal agitation.
