More than 10 years
Question: I removed and cleaned the agitator last evening. The machine is about 15 yrs old. I checked the belts and they seem fine to me. I did not see any splits, cracks or chunks of rubber missing from the belts. As the age, do they stretch? They seem loose to me, but maybe that comes from normal wear.
The agitator works, but it makes a kind of rattling noise when it agitates the wash. Also, after I removed it from the washer, I shook it and it rattled. Sounded like something was loose inside the agitator. Is that normal or does that mean the agitator is on the way out? Does a new agitator rattle when you shake it? Is that a normal sound?
