on the spin cycle machine shakes violently. It moves away from its original position
Answer Rob, If you're sure the machine is level, and all the legs are "locked" in place, and there is no movement or vibration in the floor, remove the front panel ( two phillips head screws)and check to see if the Damper Pads 203956 are sticking out from under the damper assembly or badly worn. The damper could be worn in spots, but normally does not need to be replaced.
Water fills then timer buzzes but wash does not start. Motor spins freely by hand.
Answer Hello Bill. If there is no power going to the motor, and the timer is buzzing, you will need to replace the timer 22003362 on the unit. 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
While spinning, the machine makes a loud, constant rubbing sound. Not like metal on metal, but loud nonetheless. Would this have anything to do with the damper? If not, what might it be?
Answer Hello Kathy,
I check the inner tub. They are held in by a spanner nut and the nuts sometimes come loose. The other thing I would check is for nails or screws in the inner tub hanging by the head through the holes. This can be done without any disassembly at all. Just look for the end of a nail or screw in the holes in the tub.
