When running the permanent press cycle, my washer has started humming or popping the circuit. When we run using Normal/Ultra Wash, everything is fine. I'm trying to determine if it's the 60 Hz timer switch that has gone bad. Any thoughts?
Answer Geoffrey, We would have to agree with you, the most likely issue, based on your post information is a faulty timer 8541110. There is most likely a failed contact or a damaged cam wheel, causing an internal short in the timer, and causing the breaker to trip open.
Washer appears to be running at the same speed, when the cycle changes there is a clank noise. The speeds are in rinse cycle for any cycle.
The clank noise is the brake releasing or the clutch releasing. For the agitation or spin speed not going at the right speed then the issue would most likely be caused by a bad cycle switch 3950357.
