Question about Washing Machines
My mother-in-law's Roper RAL6245AW0 washing machine quit draining or spinning. We bailed out most of the water and made sure the hoses were not blocked.
The washer fills and agitates fine, but it won't spin or drain on the rinse cycles. There are no noises of any kind (other than the timer motor), and the motor isn't even trying to turn.
The lid switch appears to be working fine, as it disables the agitation if we open the lid. (The wiring diagram on the washer is kind of hard to read, but it appears the lid switch on this model turns off everything, including the timer.) From what I could make out on the diagram, it appears to be a single pole switch, if true verifies it is working correctly.
I didn't see any belts on this model, it appears the motor attaches directly to the transmission and the pump attaches to the other end of the motor.
I tried all of the available cycles and none of the cycles will spin.
I'm guessing the timer is bad, though it seems odd the spin setting of all cycles would fail at once? And the timer is an expensive part to replace just on a "guess".
We have a Kelvinator Washing Machine that just won't drain , but fills , agitates , & spins just fine. What shall we do?
