Probably just unlucky, however check the connections to the timer, as a bad connection will eventually cause problems,
If in doubt remake the connection.
Good luck.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.,

My mtd yard machine (leaf blower) started billowing white smoke. I shut it off and now it won't start again.


First check the oil level. If its overfilled correct it. Then remove the spark plug and turn the engine over. Replace the spark plug.
Start the engine. Use a prime ( squirt carb cleaner into carb) if you need to. It may start smoking again. Thats OK as long as you know there is oil in it and you dont hear any strange noises. Let the unit run for about 5-10 minutes and see if the smoke clears up. Once it quits smoking stop it and check the oil.

Wont agitateor spin


Yes, to remove the agitator part you just pull on it, it is just the pop off type. Sounds like it might be the timer also, but make sure that the belt is also the right tension

Be sure you are using the EXACT replacement part. The wiring may be different if it is a "close" match.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.

I have the same issue, have just returned from a 9 month break and now the washer does the click thing, but if you open and close the door a few times and set to program 4 is seems to work after about 10 minutes! It was perfect when I left, not 18 months old either. Can see it being the timer either, maybe a pickup of some type not detecting a level? Peter
