Hi I,m John I will help you with the washer not starting.
can you send me the model number please .
I will check the model and get back to you .
if it works by hitting the lid the lid switch actuator is worn or caked with dried up detergent .
that is ok on spin cyle if i lift the door it stops spining
its suppose to stop spinning when the lid is lifted ,but if the actuator is jammed with detergent it wont work all the time .
right after it fill fills it make a buzzing noise, then again when it gets to rince the spin i have to move the timer around
If you move the timer ahead just a touch will it continue on with the cycle selected /
yes most of the time
Ok, let me know what you find.
going to put it on cycle just filling with water
now it start to buzz after it is full of water
smell like burning smell
i lifted the lid and it stop and started to buzz closed it a couple of times and it restarted
That is a lid switch problem, check that lid switch I,m sure it will fix the problem .
i put a new lid switch in today
Did you clean the actuator ?
is that the piece that is on the door
it is just a plastic piece
yes its the plastic part that hits the lid switch when you close the door .
how do i clean it
spray WD40 on it that should clean it out .
ok i took it off and cleaned it
this piece just pushes in the switch
yes thats what it does,if thats ok and you replaced the lid switch and it still hums I would suspect a bad contact in the timer or the motor switch .
i put a new timmer in still did the same thing
yes I know the timer has been replaced and that leaves a dirty contact in the motor switch .
where do i find that
use some electrical spray cleaner on the switch see if that fixes the problem .
i have dielectric grease
why do i smell a burnnig smell whe it is buzzing
Thats the motor your smelling the start winding is burning up .
should i remove the contacts and put sone dieelectric grease in their
You cant do that , all you can try is the electrical spray on the switch .
do i have to take the door switch off to do this
The motor switch is located on the end of the motor not the lid switch .
so i have to tip it from the back to get at it is their a plug on this switch
i donot have the elec spray is their something else i can do
how do i get a the motor
Theres a clip at each front corner about 3 inches from the corner ,use a flat screwdriver and push in at the clips this will release the front panel , check the blue and red wires for a poor connection .the motor is on the left .
this in the back of the machine
I said the front panel of the washer ,use the screwdriver to push in at the clips, this will release the front panel .
do i have to remove the timmer panal
Let me know how you make out please .
Heres the complete breakdown of the model , look for the motor at the front of the washer on the base on the left side .
ok i popoed the top now take off top screws
ok at motor
Check the red and blue wire for a poor connection .
can i put some elec grease on the connections
yes you can do that , also the WD 40 it penetrates the inside of the motor switch better
ok noe do i put it back toghter
if the lid switch is back on you can try it with the panel off the front .
Dont use WD 40 0n the motor switch just use the electrical spray .
i just has elec grease
Ok , thats fine just try the washer and let me know the outcome please .
ok filling up
motor still buzzed turned timmer on and off and it starting working
Your problem has to be the start winding in the motor which means you require a new motor .
will this let it buzz at each cycle
its not suppose to buzz it should start up and wash or spin .A new motor will fix that buzz and not starting problem .
is the the only thing left since i replaced the timmer and the switch
thats correct its the only part left that would cause that problem .
ok i will have to try a motor,i have read on the net some people hac
have put in a motor and same probem hope this solves my problem
The timer and lid switch have been replaced so it has to fix the problem ,
A rating of three or more will credit me for helping you with the washer problem .
so why when i move the knob forward does it work again
does this kick the motor going
yes a motor replacement will fix the problem.

Your very welcome, Thanks and God bless.
