My washer timer makes a clicking sound. It also filled up with water and now I am unable to get it to drain.
Answer Vicky, Your first check needs to be at the lid switch 3949247 and lid switch strike actuator. Make sure you hear a "click" when you raise and lower the lid several times. Check the hinges and plastic hinge bearings in the top too make sure they are not loose or damaged. Thanks and Good Luck
washer stopped at rince cycle. i tried a few things, took out the timer switch, took timer switch apart and saw that the terminals were somewhat fried with soot like had been arking inside,seems like the terminals are not making good contact .why would this be happening, should i by a new timer?
Answer Nixon, You probably should have checked the cold solenoid and cold water supply to the fill valve first. The rinse cycle is automatically cold water, no cold fill. no rinse cycle. Unless you're positive you got all the contacts and terminals back properly, I would replace the timer as well, once you've checked the water supply and fill valve. Thanks and Good Luck
My GE washing machine will fill with water but will not agitate and will not change to any other cycles. The machine makes no other noises. The problem is definately not the lid switch. Any thought what could be the problem?
Answer Hi K. Take the tube off the water level switch and blow back into the tub. Did you feel any restrictions blown back into the trub? If so then you need to clean the tub with washer cleaner part # is WX10X10010. Now take another tube and hook it up temporarilly on the pressure switch. Turn on the washer in reg. cycle and blow back into the hose towards the pressure switch, has the unit started now? If so you will need a pressure switch part # is W10339229. Thank you.
Washer will fill. Will not drain and timer makes a clicking noise when you set to spin and drain.
Answer Hello Bob. You will need to check the lid switch 3949247 and see if it is broken or bad. If so, it can cause the problems your having. Make sure it is reading closed with the lid closed and open with the lid open for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps.http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
