Washer fills than the motor just hums and smells hot in wash cycle. But move to spin cycle works normal. Any Thougth Thanks Scott
Answer Hello Scott. You will need to test and see if the timer is powering both the spin and agitate terminals of the motor. If so, replace the timer on the unit.
The washer makes a grinding noise in the spin cycle. When I bypass the lid switch & remove the agitator The noise goes away. If I hold the top of the spline shaft, the noise returns, and it feels like something is skipping on the shaft. Am I looking at a bad gearcase, or just a clutch? The agitator also tries to work as the tub is spinning.
Answer Jim, You're "looking at a bad gearcase" 3360629. When the drive motor rotates clockwise, the main drive gear in the gearcase rotates counterclockwise, putting the washer into the drain/spin mode. This time the shift actuator moves forward on the other side and pushes the agitate cam in the other direction. This causes the cam follower to push the agitate gear up and then lift it off the splines on the agitator shaft. During spin, the connecting rack drives the agitate gear in an oscillatory motion. Now since the agitate gear and agitate clutch are disengaged, this motion IS NOT transferred to the agitator shaft.
