Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Good afternoon , you say you can hear the motor running but its not agitating or spinning ?
Yes that was what I was saying but I have a new twist. I left the washer continue to run through the regular cycle. From the start it filled normally but no agitation, no motor noise, timer contiue to move forward with occassional switching or electrical sound. It got to the rinse cycle and spun out normally, filled with water and agitated, when it got to the final spin, nothing happened and the timer reached the end of the cycle.
P.S. while it was spinning and again when it was agitating, I raised the lid and it stopped and restarted when I lowered the lid so I am sure the assebly switch I replaced is functioning.
I tried those things and there are noises eminating from the timer but no go. I was on the permanent press cycle and now switched to the delicate cycle to see if anything happens.
Agitated during delicate cycle but did not spin. I think you are correct in that it all seems to be tied back to the timer.
PS I noticed there was an "unbalanced" switch, in the parts list, which I assume is for uneven loads ( I have been running test cycles with no clothes), any reason to think it is faulty and signaling the washer to not agitate or spin?
the off balance switch would only kick this off if the machine was banging and out of balance normally. its possible the switch is bad but not common. there are several types of lid switches in these machines is this one yours ?
