Question about Washing Machines
Washer would not spin. It washes, agitates, drains, but will not spin unless you keep working the timer. It does this with or without clothes in the washer. The clutch was bad. I changed it along with the coupling which was worn just a bit. I also changed the brake cam driver which came with the clutch kit. I also changed the timer which had burnt contacts. I bypassed the lid switch to see if it was bad, but it is working. When it finally does spin it spins up to all speeds just fine. Can this be a gearcase problem? With the lid open and the lid switch bypassed I watched the timer go to spin, the motor spins but does not disengage the brakes because I tried to spin the basket by hand and it would not move. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you changed the clutch and gearcase is trying to spin could be possible bad spin tube ..ck to be sure brake is backing off remove gearcase and try turning the brake to back off drum.. tube be be binding against bearing in tub support
