Question about KitchenAid KAWS850L Top Load Washer
Our washer stops midcycle, every time, about a quarter of the way through the wash. The only way to get it to start again is to jiggle the cycle knob, or, strangely, leaning on top of the washer. We think it might have something to do with a possible burnout on the contacts inside the cycle knob. Jiggling the knob or leaning on the washer gets the knob back in touch with good contacts inside the knob. Can I just replace the cycle knob and fix this problem?
If the problem lies with the contacts, then the knob is not the direct problem, it would be the selector switch behind the knob. Although I don't understand how leaning on the to makes the machine work. Are you sure it is not the switch that indicates when the lid is closed? Either way, Yes!! you can simply just change the switch over.
