My wife did laundry last night and the washer worked fine. On the 2nd load the washer filled up fine. It would not agitate, spin or drain. When we adjusted the knob to try to have it spin and drain the water it just made a humming sound. I know the lid switch is in good order because I replaced it 2 months ago with the help of one of your videos. I'm guessing that the capacitor 8572717 has gone bad. How can I check to see if that is the problem? I would rather replace the capacitor than purchase a new machine. However, if the problem is due to a faulty motor or transmission I would probably just buy a new machine.

Timer works, motor hums,wont spin or agitate. Removed motor/tranny section. Could capacitor cause this problem? When unplugging motor and cap. one lug/wire of cap. was very loose and broke when I tried pulling wire off. Now I cant check motor section without cap hooked up. Please help.

Wash tub fills, motor hums then burning smell, took off pump and motor, transmission shaft spins easy, motor shaft spins easy, motor shaft will spin slowly when helped manually, but still hums and does not pick up speed. Capacitor, timer, lid switch, or motor? What should I order or what should I test?

Latest Questions

I just replaced a capacitor. My old one got burned out because water got inside it and it popped. Is the capacitor supposed to get hot? I'm very nevous that it might pop because it started to smoke.

The washer will fill with water but won't do anything else on any setting. Could it be the timer?
