I replaced the spin coupler, and I didn't tap the dogs on the shaft far enough so when I put it back together it was hard to turn . Before I checked that, I turned on the machine ,it filled with water and when it went to agitate it buzzed for a while then stopped . So I think I burned out the motor start switch . I corrected the dog on shaft problem and motor spins free and I get power to the motor but maybe I have to bypass or jump the water level switch. Can you help ?

Hi, I get a brief clicking noise when the washer either begins to agitate or spin. It is like - click, click, click, click - then it begins to agitate or spin normally. I checked the clutch and brake cam - still good, the motor coupler - still good, and the pump - still good. With the cabinet removed, I think that the noise is coming from the motor. Could it be the motor switch? I don't see any burn marks on the switch or the harness connector. I did check the motor terminals as according to this site - (http://www.applianceaid.com/direct-drive-washer-motor-help.php) - the measured resistance between the listed terminals falls within those specified,

Washer stopped agitating in the middle of a load. Assumed the clutch or coupler was bad. Replaced both which didn't look bad. Before putting motor back on transmission I set it on the floor and turned the timer to agitate and got nothing, on spin it ran fine. Where can I get a pin diagram for the motor switch or timer to see if I have voltage there? Any other suggestions?

When the washer reaches the spin cycle it turns off. Sometimes it's the first spin and sometimes its the second spin cycle. Each time it has only drained a little more than half way. I have to unplug for approx 30 minutes, turn it back on and it will finish the cycle. I have tried to leave it plugged in with just the switch off and it does not come back on until I unplug it. There is no burning smell. Thanks in advance.
