Major Appliances/maytag a310 not agitating
QUESTION: This washing machine fills properly but instead of agitating, will spin in only one direction. The direction may be either clockwise or counterclockwise.
ANSWER: Do you mean it will spin in either direction? Is this by hand or in the spin cycle? It will not agitate if the pressure switch does not tell the unit that the tub is full, but I am concerned about the spinning both ways. Please confirm

QUESTION: It will spin in either direction during what should be the wash cycle. It just does not alernate directions every second or two as it should. The spin cycle is normal.
ANSWER: When you say spinning...are you speaking of the agitator spinning while the inner basket does not move at all? If this spins in either direction and does not rotate back and forth, your transmission is defective. Please confirm and we will instruct further....
Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion

QUESTION: They both spin together.
No No you said the direction may be clockwise or counter clockwise... was that spinning the tub with your hand or letting it spin by itself... By itself, it should only spin in one of those directions, not both.
We are confuse as to the original problem. Please take a look at your unit and observe. I need to know exactly what the unit is doing in order to help. Eric
