My machine will not always spin in the spin cycle. It will advance fine to the spin cycle and just click and not spin. Is it the lid switch?
Answer Hello Carol. You will need to check the lid switch and strike on the unit. If either are bad, it will cause the issue you are having with the unit.
On the hot/cold water solenoid, the cold water will not shut all the way off,I thought if I cleaned it,it might be ok..
Answer Hello Dean. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the water valve 285805 is bad and will need to be replaced.
Washer fills and does nothing afterwards. I am trying to determine if it is the Lid Switch or Water Level Switch?
Answer Hello Lisa,
You can test this from the pressure switch W10337780. With a test meter and using ground as a reference, test for 120Vac. If you have it on two terminals, it's passing the voltage. You can test the lid switch 8318084 from the main top where the three wire connector plugs in. If you unplug the unit, you can test for continuity when the lid is closed and when you find it, open the lid and make sure the circuit opens. I would first suspect the lid switch since this is the configuration that is so delicate if the lid is dropped.
Thanks for reply. Thats all the #s on the tag. Hope to locate the parts. Thanks again, Scott.
Answer Hello Scott! It would be suggested to replace the cam repair kit, this also includes the agitator dogs. You will need the long cam repair kit, part number 285748. Thanks!
My agitator dogs or clips, inside the agititator do not engage, it just spins with no action.
Answer Hello Scott,
The agitator dogs should prevent free spinning of the upper half of the agitator in one direction only. With the complete model number, we could look up the part number you need for you.
As the machine gets to the rinse cycle, after draining the water from the wash cycle, the machine makes a whirring sound, but nothing happens from what we can tell.
Answer Marc, If the washer fills, washes and drains, but does not spin, and makes a noise, you need to look for a damaged drive coupler 285753A or a slipping clutch or stuck brake pads 285438. Here's a post from the Appliance Parts Pros Repair forum, that should help you through the checks and repairs [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/washer-repair/3265-replacing-direct-drive-washer-brake-shoes.html]. Good Luck and Thanks
