Default Poor agitation and spin
Model Number: SAWS800MQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This washer will agitate and spin. It now has a wobbly agitation and slow spin. I can stop it with my hand while holding on to the agitator when in cycle. I can only wash very small load and with regular load, it doesnt work well.

Could this be the agitator dawgs? Do I need to buy the rebuilt it, #285811?

Please help

Everything else works, motor works, etc

This sounds like either multiple problems, with the dogs and the clutch being the issues or else a transmission problem. Since the dogs are easy to replace and cost very little, go ahead and change them out and see if that fixes the agitation problem. If so, then go ahead and replace the clutch.

Here is the clutch part.

Default correction---slow spin only

Thank you

It turns out the problem is a slow spin only and the clothes remain wet.
I understand it needs a clutch.

Question: when assembling the clutch, do I need to rotate/wind the brake clockwise or counterclockwise? Or do I just need to make sure the brake and clutch are at opposite ends and not wind it? Will it self wind when put back together--or as long as it is put back together it will self wind and I should not worry.

The spring will set itself, just as long as you get the pieces together correctly and make sure the brake cam is in the right place, it will all work out.

what is the right position of the brake cam please? Should I just mark it and make sure the clutch spring is on the opposite side and as long as it bolts back on it should be okay?

As long as the brake cam is not riding on the spring it will be fine. And if it is riding on the spring you will be unable to insert the tube back in, so it should all work out correctly.
