Hi Im John I will help you with the washer problem.
Disconnect the washer and pull on the white wires that connect to both solenoids the wire could be broken inside the plastic wire casing for the white wire.
Try that and let me know if thats the problem please.
Do you mean during the pump out? During the pump out, the cam bar moves back, stops and stays in place, the agitating stops and the pump out occurs. During the agitating it agitates consistently but it seems very jerky, turns the agitator twisting only in counterclockwise bursts, and continues that way as long as it is agitating. (Is that the way the agitator is supposed to operate? I thought the agitator action involved a counterclockwise twist and then a clockwise twist. Or do I have that wrong?)
Your model number isn't coming up so Im not sure if the top part of the agitator has dogs.
Heres a video on how to replace the dogs I think its the problem.
I watched the video. Looks like when the dogs are working right it just twists with a ratcheting motion in a counterclockwise direction, right? So, if that is the case, it looks like mine is doing what it should in the agitation cycle. I thought the two cam bars should have been moving back and forth for the agitator cycle. But it sounds like the right cam bar is the only one operational during the agitator cycle.
My original problem was that the spin cycle was not working. Is that where the left solinoid and cam bar come into play?
Its a switch that any appliance parts store will have in stock.
If it doesnt click when the button is pushed its broken.
Try reversing the red and yellow wires then put it in the spin cycle if the lid switch is ok it should agitate in the spin cycle.
If it does that the problem is with the spin solenoid.
This is the wigwag solenoid .
