My old belt driven washer gets stuck in drain mode. If I manually slide the swing arm on the pump it holds for the wash cycle but then stays in drain mode for the rest of the cycle. Could it be a bad Wig Wag (solenoid)?

Paul for Model Number LA5500K

ANSWER Hello Paul, You are correct. The wig-wag shifts the unit from agitate to drain. If the solenoids are not energized, the unit will remain in one state. You should first check the wiring to the wig-wags first as these had issues with the wiring breaking, shorting, and burning in the connector at the main top. If the voltage, (120Vac), is reaching the wig-wag solenoids and they are not energizing, you can change the wig-wag with confidence that it will resolve the issue. Many wig-wags have been changed needlessly because of a wiring issue.
