Question about Washing Machines
1)Dryer works fine. 2)Washer will spin dry if I position timer to that spot. When I open spin stops like normal. Switch must be working ? 3)Timer sounds like it is moving. 4)Water will not come in I don't hear a click sound like normal. (like no electric) 5)Washer will not agitate even when I move timer to that spot. Any suggestions ??????
Opening door while spining should stop the machine. Since no water comes in, the agitate stage will not work even when the timer will be on this spot. Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck !

Tips for a great answer:
1) Verify a circuit breaker
2) Advance the timer
control dial slowly 360 degrees-
If the washer starts
spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are
fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or
the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.
If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is
attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken,
replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding
the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until
there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.
3) Visually inspect the lid
safety switch- Is it loose or cracked?
If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.
4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.
