Midea washers deliver quick agitation to ensure that clothes come out clean and fresh. Over time, the agitation of the machine may become slow or stop entirely. This can lead to clothing that does not come clean even with multiple trips through the washer. Here are some troubleshooting tips to help you with agitation problems.
Midea washers feature an internal agitator that spins to shake clothes, and the agitator dogs inside the agitator control the agitation. Inspect these components for signs of wear, and replace any damaged or cracked washer parts. Signs of wear may also include chipping or unexpected bending of the agitator or the dogs.
The drive belt powers many of the moving parts of the washer, including the agitation of clothes during normal operation. This belt may become worn over time and begin to slip, which can slow down or prevent agitation. The interior side of the belt should remain rough and able to grip surfaces with ease. A belt that becomes too smooth may slip easily, and one with cracks may break and cause agitation to fail entirely. Replace any belt that shows obvious signs of wear.
The clutch on the washing machine's transmission releases the brake to allow baskets to spin and agitate clothes on some models. A handyman who understands the many elements of washer repair help can repair a broken clutch using a clutch band kit. A clutch replacement kit lets you swap out the broken or poorly operating part for a new version and return normal functionality to the machine.
