The drum spins until you put clothes in making it slow or stop. Is that a belt problem or the motor?
Answer Hello Dave,
Since the belt is riding on a spring loaded idler pulley, if the belt is the issue, you would get a loud squealing noise from the belt slippage. I would diagnose the motor in the case of a no noise drum slow down.
My washer will not go into spin cycle. Would this be the door switch? Thanks.
Answer Hello Brian. You need to check and see if the lid switch 22001682 is bad on the unit. If so, it will prevent the unit from spinning properly.
How do I remove the top of the washer to replace the lid cover switch assy ?
Answer Hello Jim. Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the two screws in the back corners of the control panel securing the control panel. Pull the control panel forward and flip it backwards. Next unplug the lid switch and remove the two brass colored clips securing the cabinet to the back wall using a flat blade screwdriver to pry them out. Pull on the front of the cabinet and slide the cabinet off the frame of the washer. You can now access and replace the lid switch 279347. Reinstall in reverse order.
