Washer seems to wash OK and rinse OK but when it goes into the spin
cycle, the timer
just runs and then advances to off. The lid switches are OK obviously.
I had the front cover off
and the motor and pump are doing nothing.
No the motor does not run. I put my volt meter on the motor and 110
volts never showed
up athe the motor when the dial advanced to spin. The timer kept
running all the way to
off but voltage never appeared at the motor.
I assume the contacts are bad for the spin circuit at this point.
If the agitation circuit is completed through the lid switch (it
agitates with lid closed, stops when it is open), then you know that
the motor, belt, lid switch are in working order. The only isolated
component that differs in spin then is the timer.
I looked at the problem a little bit last night. When the timer is
clicking I assume the timer motor is running because
it advances all the way to off but nothing happens. I put my volt meter
on the motor while the timer was in spin position but
110 volts never showed up at the motor. I guess its possible the the
timer can run and the contacts for spin are bad.
I am going to probaly get a timer monday and change it.
Thank you for your help.
