washer will spin and drain will not agitate.Pulled the transmission cover and its fine. Do you sell the oil for the transmission or can you use automotive type gear oil? I am guessing the timer is bad how do I do a pinpoint test on it? Or just order the timer and send it back if that doesn't fix it? the washer is 21 years old so I am not going to invest a whole lot of $$$ in it.
Answer Jeff, The part number for the gear oil is 6-0560800 Based on your post, the issue would be in the timer 22001025, if the motor operates in one direction, it's 99%, the motor is not the issue. Basically To pin point the issue in the timer you'd unplug the power cord, set the timer dial to a wash cycle, pull out the knob and disconnect the multi plug connector. Then you'd check for closed circuits between the contacts on the timer based on the wiring diagram and timer cam or cycle chart. But first, have you checked the lid switches and fuse. Yes, if the timer does not solve the issue, you can return the part for a refund, but you'll be responsible for the return shipping. Thanks
Is it difficult to replace the timer?
Answer Hello David,
It is not hard to replace the timer at all. Unplug the washer and take the screws out from across the top of the control panel. Remove the knob by popping the center out and remove the little "c" clip. Be careful not to lose it! Pull the outer part of the knob off and remove the two screws securing it to the panel. With the timer loose, you can depress the retaining clips on either side of the harness connector. Once you have removed both of the connectors, reverse the procedure to install the new timer. Reestablish the electrical connection, (plug it back in), and try the unit to insure the connections made and your done.
