Washer Repair Pros Want to Know: Are You Agitated Over Agitators and Impellers?

If you’ve got a family that is known to get dirty, stick with a washer that has an agitator, and can erase all traces of their grimy activities.

Our Whirlpool washer service repair customers often ask… “Which is better, to agitate or not?” That is a question often posed to our local SoBellas washer repair team in San Antonio. The answer really hinges on a person’s laundry habits more than anything else. Both types of washers will clean clothes but not always in the best way. For example, machines that come with agitators are great at handling incredibly dirty clothes, others are not. So if you’ve got a family full of folks that are known to play in the mud or get covered in grease, stick with a washer that can erase all traces of their grimy activities.

Impeller machines, on the other hand, are perfect for people that like to wear delicate items (e.g. ballerina tutus and camisoles). That’s because impellers are less likely to chew up lace, straps, mesh, tulle and other frilly stuff. However, they tend to be terrible at completely removing mud, grease, grass stains and other problematic materials out of many different types of fabric. Therefore, a lot of people with impeller washing machines often find themselves rewashing heavily soiled items at least twice or taking them to a laundromat that has agitator style appliances.

Of course both machines can also break down at times. As far as the agitators go, their fins may crack or snap off after repeated use. Impellers can get hung up on clothing and debris as well. The list of other parts that may need replacing on occasion includes, but isn’t restricted to drive belts, U-joints, rotor assemblies, drive bells, stater assemblies and motor control boards. Oh and by the way, in the past, we’ve had to repair door/lid latch assemblies, drive motors, motor couplings and drive bells too. So whether you’ve chosen to go with an agitator or impeller style washing machine, please contact us online and schedule an appointment for washer repair in San Antonio or any GE appliance repair.
