Washer stops and won't start again. It is intermittent.
Answer Hello Beverly. Check and see if the motor is over heating. If so, you will need to order and replace the motor in the unit.
Fills, will not agitate, drain or spin. Hear a humming noise when put on spin or agitate. Replaced coupler between motor and drive. Replaced motor, capacitor and lid switch. Still only a buzz?
Answer Hello John. It sounds like either the timer or the motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. If there is power to the motor, and it does not run, replace the motor. If there is power to both the forward and reverse wires to the motor, replace the timer. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

After water filling, my washer doesn't agitate. The motor hums and smells like burning. If i change to spin, it does and drains well.
Answer Frank, Based on your post, it's more likely a timer issue, or gear case problem, 99% of the time, if the motor runs in one direction, it will reverse and run in the opposite direction, provided the proper circuitry and voltage is supplied from the timer. Without a proper model number, you may also want to remove the drain pump and motor, and turn the coupler on the transmission input gear several revolutions in both directions, to make sure a "locked up" transmission is not the case.
My whirlpool washer will agitate and fill....but will not spin or drain....have checked continuity in the lid switch....is it the motor or what?
Answer Hello Mark. Check and make sure the lid switch is working properly and make sure the strike on the lid is pressing the switch. If all of that is good, you will need to test for power to the motor. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

My washer fills with water then when time to agitate their is a buzzing noise then shuts off. after about a few seconds clicks back on then buzzes again then shuts off. What could be wrong?
Answer Hello Ramiro,
You will want to check to make sure that the pump does not have something clogged in it. You can test by removing the clips from the pump and try to start unit. If the unit continues to do the same then the most likely cause would be the start switch. If it starts normally then it is a clogged or bad pump.
