I cleaned the centrifugal mechanism and i cleaned the inside of the
switch housing with some mild solvent (I really miss TV tuner cleaner)
and now it will work on the fast agitage cycle but does nothing at all
on the gentle cycle. It also starts to spin while pumping out the
water while the tub is still full. This is indicating a high
possiblility of a bad switch but the motor is a bit noisy while
running which I think might be attributable to bad connections in the
switch as the motor runs smoothly if I just connect the white and
orange wires to 120VAC and hold the switch down.
At least I'm making some progress.
