My washer stopped at the beginning of the spin cycle. Door lock light is illuminated but nothing happens when I manually turn the timer knob -- no water, no pump motor, no drive motor. The timer does not advance. Should I suspect a bad door lock? The tech sheet lists a motor protector but I cannot locate it. Is it on the timer control board? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Answer Hello Bruce,
You would want to check the wiring from the door lock to the control board to make sure that the connections are good and no corrosion. If this checks ok then you would want to run diagnostics on the unit. This would be found on the tech sheet inside of unit. This will also advise on any error codes that may be stored that would give a good idea of what failure has occured and what to check.
The drum wont spin in any cycle. It fills and empties. The belt is good and the drum turns freely. The control clicks like it did when the drum cycled directions. Is the control board a large percentage of the causes?
Answer Hi Flstskeith. Remove the drum belt and see if the motor itself will normally run. If so then the drum assy. is the issue. Access the pressure switch. Unhook the hose and blow back ward into the tub. Did you remove any obstruction? If so you can use washer magic monthly to insure proper performance. Take a same size hose and blow into the pressure switch to reset the contacts. Start The washer and blow into the switch, does it start to agitate now? You can also bypass the switch if your careful. If so you will need pressure switch part # 134433701. Your timer may not be sending 120 vac to the wash circuit. Part # 131717100. Use the wiring diagram supplied inside the cabinet to help assist. Thank You.
