will not fill with water .replaced timer and water valve.lidswitch ok water level switch OK .other dials look ok but no way to test.cannot keep buying parts on hope something works.what now? let me add to last question the timer will not start on water fill, it will start and run on spin but will stop when it gets to a water fill position thanks lovell.
Answer Hello Lovell,
This sounds like the water level switch W10339251 is not making electrical continuity when it is actuated by a low water level. You will need to get a test meter to check it electrically. You also need to remove the water level switch hose from the switch and blow through t back toward the tub. It should be clear and you will be able to hear the air entering the bottom of the tub. Don not blow back toward the switch as this can cause damage to the switch.
The washing machine filled with water but won't run. I checked the lid switch. It shows continuity with the lid closed. I even bypassed the switch with a jumper wire and it still won't run. I have read that some washing machines will do this and have a buzzing noise. Mine is silent. How can I check the timer and motor?
Answer Hi. If the motor does not stay running then it has either bad bearings, dragging armature, shorted windings or centrifugal switch contacts. Therefore it will also open the heat circuit passing through separate centrifugal contacts as well. Either way the motor part # WE17X10010 needs replaced. Correct all vent issues with kinking or clogs. Thank You.
My washer filled up with water but will not start cycle.
Answer Hello Manuel. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the lid switch 8318084 may be bad and need to be replaced. You need to test the lid switch. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
my washer will not advance to spin cycle we have to manually do it. do i need i a new timer?
Answer Steve, Based on your short post description, Yes, you will need to replace the timer 8577356. Apparently the timer motor or the interior contacts have failed and the timer will not advance on it's own. Thanks
Is it possible to clean the contacts inside of the timer?
Answer Hello Paul. No, if the contact is bad inside the timer, you will need to replace the timer 8577356.
