Washer fills with water, but there is no agitation. There is no motor hum when the washer should be agitating. It is as if the motor is not getting the signal that it is time to start agitating. However, the spin cycle works fine--water drains and machine spins and the timer advances the spin cycle ok. I tried replacing the timer, part no. 206228, but it doesn't change anything. Any advice?
Answer Robert, First check the speed control switch, make sure one of the buttons is pressed and locked down in place, then check the switch circuit. Since you've already tried a timer, and you're sure you wired it correctly, you'll need to check the wires to the motor for damage or loose connections. The timer reverses the polarity (direction of electrical current) to the motor to make it reverse directions, if the motor runs in the spin cycle, it should also run in the agitate direction as well.
We just purchased Part Number: AP4009168 motor and jumper - and see that the wiring colors and locations of the jumper that was included do not match up with those on the motor.
Should we use this anyway or did you send the wrong jumper?
Answer Frank, The Black multi plug cobnnector is attached to the centrifugal switch on the motor, it only fits one way,and locks in place if done properly. The individual wires with the clear plastic terminal covers, attach to the corresponding colored wire in the cabinet wire harness to the motor.
My washer also works fine in the wash cycle and then quits in the rinse cycle. The motor also hums and acts like someone is flipping the switch when it tries to run. Voltage at the outlet reads 130, but when the motor kicks in to rinse, it drops to 102-104. If the motor stays running, the voltage goes back up. I took the motor switch apart and cleaned the contact points, but that did not seem to help. Could it be the motor? Everything seems to be free and easy to move.
Answer Alan, The issue is in the power supply, not the washer or motor. There should be no more than a 10% voltage drop on a circuit, it it is wired and working proper. Minimum operational volts for the motor is 108 VAC,"under a load" 108 to 104 VAC the motor might start and run, 102 volts or below the motor will hum, but usually won't start/run. You could install a capacitor kit as a temporary repair 206103 or test. but you need to start at the outlet and work back to the breaker box. Thanks and Good Luck
Machine works ok in permanent press but only the timer runs in regular
Answer Hi Paul. You will need to replace the motor part # 12002353. It is a 2 speed motor. It should run in regular cycle as selected. Thank You.
Just replaced the timer and it worked great for three days. After that, the washer will not fill or even start in any cycle. Help
Answer Hello Bob. Check and see if the unit will spin. If so, and it does not fill, you will need to replace the lid switch assembly 22001682. Hope this helps.
