My washing machine doesn't ever spin unless I open the lid and close it. The cycle will complete but clothes may be wet and soapy.
With the unit not spinning unless you open the lid would be caused by the neutral drain assembly which is located in the gearcase. This would require the transmission to be replaced. The part number for the transmission is 3360629.
Washing machine will not start. Lights are on but nothing happens.
Answer Hello Smith,
While this sounds like a lid switch, I'm sorry but it is not possible to diagnose a machine without the model number since this enables us to pull the parts list, wiring diagram, and other information which tells us your units' configuration. If you could please re-post with the model number from your units' I.D. tag, we will be happy to assist you. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
My three year old machine will not start every time, now it won't start at all. The power to it is fine. What do I check?
If the unit is filling with water but not agitating or spinning then you will want to check the lid switch to make sure that the lid switch has continuity when the lid is closed. Could be making intermittent contact.
