The knob does not work properly, spins when it should wash etc. Any suggestions
Answer Hello Linda,
The first thing you want to do is check the knob on the unit to make sure that it is not cracked and pointing the wrong direction. If this is ok then you would want to check the timer and to see if there is a reversed wire on the motor.
Washer is tripping breaker just before spin cycles.....do I need the whole motor or some other part may be shorting or causing a high voltage draw?
Answer Steve, There are several things you need to check, since the washer fills, washes and drains, you most likely have a voltage issue to the washer. First check to see there is nothing stuck between the tubs. Dismount the motor and pump assemblies from the transmission, turn the drive coupler on the input shaft in both directions, make sure there are no "stiff" areas or the gearcase doesn't lock up. Then you'll need to check the wiring between the water level switch and timer. If alls Ok, and the voltage is proper when the motor starts to spin, Then replace the timer W10111389.
