Question about Washing Machines
Washing machine will fill and agitate but then stops suddenly before getting to the rinse cycle. We manaually drained the machine and verified the hose is not clogged. We then turned the machine to the rinse cycle where the machine filled again and agitated then suddenly stopped again. We manually drained the machine again and turned the machine to spin. It will not spin. It does not make any sort of noise. It simply will not do anything. We tried sticking a pair of pliers into the lid switch but it resulted in nothing as well. Any help would greatly be appreciated!
Its your lid switch. it cant spin til that switch is closed,and they break all the time.its thru that hole where the lid seats on the top of the washer.also some times the switch actuator on the lid breaks,but not as offten.inspect that area and you will see issue.you can cut and connect the wires underthere in a pinch[there are three wires to the lid switch.dont connect the green ground its the other two]but you must be careful if you have children they will be curious and lift the lid and it wont stop spinning,so if they reach in with there arm,their has been cases of arms being torn of from spinning tub.how this helps God bless ,tom
