when you start the wash cycle does the lid lock? If so when it stops is the lid lock light flashing?

wash cycle starts (lid locks), when it stops I dont think the lid lock is flashing.
when i start the spin only cycle, it tries to lock then doesnt

do you have a ohm/voltage meter? In order to find out what the problem is you are going to have to have one.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I dont, do you suggest I get one?
does this sound like something major (need to get someone to come out) or can i do this myself?
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,
 replied 2 years ago

there are several parts that could be bad that causes it not spin. In order to nail it down you really should know how to use a ohm/voltage meter. If you do not have experience with using one I would suggest calling out a qualified tech because these washers can get a tad bit tricky to diagnose, as they are computer controlled.

but if you would like to try to figure it out yourself I would be glad to try and help you do so, but you will need an ohm meter you can pick one up at any electronics store, walmart etc;

no
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok anything else?
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,
 replied 2 years ago

when you put the washer on spin only do you hear a few click noises and the the lid lock light flashes and it just stops? I can tell you the most common problem that causes this and you can order the part and change it but without knowing for sure its hard to say if that will fix the problem. The shift actuator that shifts the transmission from wash to spin is fairly common to go out Part #: W10006355. It is easy to replace.

under the bottom of the washer you will see a plastic belt cover,remove that cover and you will see the part, its brown held in by 3 green phillips head screws and will have a wire harness plugged into it.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
thanks for the video
it is not spinning ok...so I guess the problem may be more switching from washing cycles to spin cycle....kinda confused now...
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,
 replied 2 years ago

The shift actuator is what shifts the transmission from wash to spin mode. If it is bad it will not shift into spin.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i dont have experience with an ohm meter, but from my description - do you think it is the shift actuator? if so, how do I get that part the easiest?
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,
 replied 2 years ago

Most of the time that part is the problem it is very typical for that part to be bad on that particular washer. The easiest way to get the part is gonna be ordering online. I found you one at amazon for a good price with free shipping. AMAZON.
