Washer operates normal in wash cycle. the spin cycle startes and sometimes complets spin cycle early morning only. If i try to do a second load the wash cycle completes. The spin cycle starts and turns about three revolutions then stops spining. The timer cycles and the wash cycle operats correctly. When the spin cycle comes up on the dile the motor does not respond. I have to wate till the next morning to cycle the washer through the spin cycle. sometimes this works and sometimes it does not. I have sometime assisted the spin cycle by hand spinning the tub. I have to dothis for several revolutions or the motor stops and i have to wate till the next morning. Could this be low voltage to the machine? / The house? Causing the thermal switch to open. low voltage higher current. I have not checked the house voltage yet. I read the eight questions and thought maybe i have low input voltage to the house/machine. I will check tonight and responed here tomorrow. thank you Bob G.
ANSWER Bob, Sounds more like you've got a power supply problem, than a washer problem. You'll need to get access to a multimeter TJMA-DMT3 . Insert the meter probes into the empty outlet of the power outlet and check for 110 to 120 VAC. Put the timer dial into the spin cycle and pull out the timer knob, and observe the meter at the same time. Voltage must remain above 108 VAC, in order for the motor to start and run. Voltage of 108 to 105 the motor may or may not start and overheat, voltage of 105 or lower, motor may hum, but wont run and will overheat. If the voltage remains above 108 volts and the motor hums, replace the motor, if the voltage is less than 108 volts and the motor hums, you'll need an electrician. Good Luck and Thanks
