    Default Centennial agitation

    Model - mvwc450x3
    I know these are supposed to sense the amount of water needed, right? Why would this one barely put a little water in the drum, not nearly enough to come close to covering the load, and barely agitate?

    I mean if you place the load around the wash plate, you cannot see the water unless you look in the middle well below the load. The agitation might go 3 inches in both directions.

    I had changed the mode shifter yesterday because it would not spin a few days ago. It would barely pump the water out, but A clogged pump was the reason for that.

    It did agitate though.

    Could that be MVWC450XW3

    Ours ( in the wash and fold service ) adds water as it washes and seems to circulate the water onto the clothes also.

    Yep. Have two of these. Dangest things for me to figure out. I did get the booklet out of it. I might be able to learn something from it.
    This has the clear lid. I don't think I have ever seen one agitate with so little movement. Also, I would expect the agitator to be covered with water. Most of the load was still dry and none of it seemed to be doing anything but raising up and down a little as the wash plate...ocillated

    These things are a headache...to me.

    Any idea why this one will only oscillate a few inches? Belt? The plate seems to be fit tight on the shaft.ngs

    The other one bangs as soon as it starts to spin way before it gets up to speed. The suspension rods show different part numbers, so swapping them out is out of the question I guess.

    I don't believe it will go much further than that.
    Might depend on what cycle has been selected.
