Re: machine stops after wash cycle, restarts when i bang...
Sounds as if hte lid switch is not activating correctly, the lid actuator is actulle hte under side of left hand door hinge. if you lkift the lid and feel under the left side og the lid you fell the metal lid hinge, simply slip a hollow shafted screwdriver over the hingeitself and bend slightly back, this will make the lid come in contact with swict a little bit easier

Most likely a bad timer. Set the machine to wash. When it gets to the spin cycle it should pump out the water. Then there will be a PAUSE(silence) from the machine for several seconds. During this time the transmission will engage the spin gears(audible sound). If there is NO PAUSE the timer is bad. When you open and close the lid you are artificially creating the pause.
Check the lid switch under the edge of the top where the lid closes. When you are about 1 inch from closing the lid you should here a little click sound. That is the switch closing. I fyou do not here the click then the switch is bad.
DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)
With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.
Basket drive block part number is 389140
If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further. Good luck!
This sounds like the brakes have gotten some residue on them and are grabbing way too hard. The banging is the tub stopping too fast and the torque from this makes the tub bang into the cabinet. Just one bang at the end of a spin. Is this correct???
