Hardly turns during the wash cycle but spins and drains

I have a Kenmore HE top loader washer that I bought new in 2012. Model 110.26002012

I have noticed that my cloths are not getting clean and they smell even after washing. I wanted to see what was actually happening during a "normal" cycle so I unscrewed the lid lock and placed it in the lock slot with the lid left open.

I used the recommended amount of HE detergent and did not overload the washer.

The wash filled with a normal amount of water. Enough to saturate my cloths but not cover them completely. From my research, this is appears to be normal for HE washers.

The washer then moves into the "wash" mode. This is where I think I am having a problem. The bucket moves but only slightly. It's not actually agitating the cloths or moving them in anyway. It's moving so little that it's not even creating suds with the soap. At this point my cloths are pretty much soaking in somewhat soapy water.

After the "wash" mode is complete it moves onto the rise, drain and spin cycles. These all work great. It spins very fast and drains so much water out that my cloths that they take no time to dry once moved to the dryer.

The wash driver belt and washer actuator are brand new.

Any thoughts or suggestions on what would cause my washer to not agitate correctly but spin/drain successfully?

If it is only 3 months old from new, contact the manufacturer's customer service section about a manufacturer's warranty repair.

Cause 1

Agitator Repair Kit

If the washer won't agitate, replacing the agitator repair kit may solve the problem. The kit contains the agitator components that are most likely to wear out and/or fail. If any of the parts are worn out, stripped, or damaged, replace the kit.

Cause 2

Drive 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.

Cause 3

Motor Coupling

The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. If the washer is overloaded, the motor coupling will fail in order to protect both the motor and transmission. The motor coupling can also fail due to normal wear. Inspect the motor coupling to determine if it is broken. If the motor coupling is broken, replace it.

How could it be any of the suggested things when the machine works as normal in a different cycle?

Can we get real answers and not the usual "canned" response? The question concerns clothes not moving or barely moving while the machine agitates. Your parts failure conclusion is total bunk so try again or get a real service tech to provide correct solution/s. We here all remember mom's washing machine churning and tumbling the laundry like it stuck in a roller dam. Lame

Amen!! There's NO WAY these new washers can clean clothes!!!

I bought a brand new rorer top load aggitator and from day one did exactly as O.p 's washer did. So unless it was broken from the get go which in this f*cked world is highly plausible. They just make $@$* products these days wasting resources and creating more problems than solving them

Excellent answer sir. Your knowledge is appreciated and will be applied in my repair because I have common sense enough to know what you are talking about and will certainly be one if not possibly all three of the causes mentioned and no other possibilities. And washers these days do clean cloths when used how they were intended to be used and properly maintained, they could last for several decades.

I have accomplished this and witnessed washers outlast numerous wardrobes. Take care of your appliances, avoid abuse, and they will take care of you. The only thing wrong with washers these days is the people who don't have sense enough to use them correctly. Thank you sir!

My tub moves but the agitator doesn't or maybe just barely. The clothes get wrapped around the agitator in a mess. Is this the agitator problem like mentioned by others?
