Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..does the machine try and drain and spin? does it make any noise at all? or is it just quiet?. thx
It just quits agitating.
There is no noise.
in the spin cycle the drain pump should drain first then go to spin the water out ..it doesnt make any noise at all during this cycle? it is just quiet ,no humming?
It is just quiet, no humming or any sound at all.
then i would think the lid lock is bad , this has to be activated for it to drain and spin ,it will fill and wash but wont spin unless the lid lock is functioning
Yes, but it won't agitate unless the lid lock is engaged either. If I lift the lid during agitation, that action stops. So how could it be the lid lock?
it still wont lock in the agitate , it has more than one contact
you already changed the timer
So you are saying that the lid lock switch can be faulty even if it seems to work by stopping agitation? There is a separate part that enables it to go into draining and then spinning?
yes ,in agitate it engages the motor but the locking mechanism doesnt activate ,you can still lift the lid whenever you want ,in the drain and spin the locking lever moves over and locks the lid so you cant lift it up until it disengages ,if you changed the timer already ,it has to be in the lid switch assembly ,especially if you dont hear any humming from either the drain pump or motor in the spin cycle
OK, I will give it a try.
just looking at wiring diagram lid switch is tan/black to tan /black but lid lock is red/white to white ..2 different contacts to close
