I have replaced the lid switch, lid strike, water inlet valve, and the timer washer still gets to the rinse cycle and stop. Please help!
Answer Hello Cynthia. You need to check and see if the cold water valve is powered during the rinse cycle. If there is no power, you will need to check the temp switch on the unit. Usually most washers only rinse in cold water, so if it spins out, but does not fill to continue, it is usually a valve, temp switch, or timer issue. Also, check the wiring harness on the unit.
Hi, My washer is stuck in the wash cycle. I turn it to spin, or rinse, and it will not do either. It just goes back to the wash cycle. I cannot get the water to drain either. HELP!
Answer Hello Christine,
I would check the lid switch first. If it tests good, I would remove the drain pump from the motor without removing the water hoses from it and see if the motor spins. If it does and didn't with the pump on the motor, the issue is most likely debris in the pump. If the motor is running when it should drain, there's no need to check the lid switch. You need to go straight to the drain pump in this case. If the motor doesn't run, check with the pump off and if it still doesn't run, check for voltage at two terminals on the motor terminal with the motor electrical connector disconnected. One terminal should have voltage. If two have 120Vac on them, the timer will have welded contacts. The white wire with a black trace should be the only energized wire during the spin cycle. If there is voltage on another wire, it can be traced back to the problem component.
Doing the wash, in mid agitation, full of water it just stopped. There is a sound of a timer running but nothing is happening, and a burning smell. I got to run after unplugging it and moving the timer around and in and out it finally engaged. Is this the timer?
Answer Jim, You may have had a temporary voltage issue, or something in the pump, that causeed the motor to overheat and shut off on the overload. You may not want to start at the timer, but start at the pump and motor first. If all seems and checks OK, then go for the timer.
