Re: not completing the wash cycle

Does this happen every time or once in a while? If it happens everytime, I would guess there is a shorted spot in the timer. If you can put it into the spin cycle manually, then the motor is not shorted. It will be hard to diagnose it from long distance, but if it is tripping the house breaker it has a dead short somewhere. If it only happens sometimes, check to see what else is on the circuit that might be running at the same time. It pulls the most amps when it goes into spin, spiking around 16-20 amps. If you have other things running on a 20 or 30 amp breaker it could just be the curcuit is overloaded at that point or the breaker is weak. If we can narrow it down to the timer, it is a pretty simple repair, but some of the timers are pretty expensive. Post back with the exact model number if you need more help.

A knocking noise during agitation wash cycle

could be a bad counter balance , u can remove the front panel and run a spin or wash cycle and listen to where its coming from so u don't have to replace all the balancers. on some models theres a heavy ceramic weight at bottom that at times goes bad and throws it off balance, just run it and look where noise is coming from

Rattling noise during spin cycle

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

I imagine you've bought a new machine by now? The plastic gearcog is the clutch housing. The arm that clicks is part of the brake lever. On these models, the brake lever is supposed to hold the clutch in place during the wash cycle so that it slips in both directions to get a forward and reverse wash. On spin, the lever moves away releasing the clutch and gearbox brake and allowing the bowl and agitator to spin together. The brake lever wears and allows the gearbox to slip during the wash cycle. When this happens, the clutch housing will "ratchet" past the brake lever tongue. this causes the "clicking" noise in 1 direction.
