Hi, When the washer is in spin mode, do you hear the motor running at all. It could be the lid switch has broke. I do not believe it will be a motor.
To test the lid switch, Remove the screws located on the back of the control panel on each end.
Lift the control panel and let it rest on the hinges. The lid switch is located to the left and has a three wire harness. Unplug the washer before you unplug the harness and put an insulated wire between the two gray wires (not the green stipe wire)
If you can jump this, turn the timer back into spin cycle and see if it starts.
Please let me know if it helps or if I can assist you further.

This may be a problem with the lid switch.A heavy load may have broken the plastic switch.

Sounds like you may need new timer. They have contacts in side that control all fuctions of you machine if those contacts start failing or get burnt the machine will hit a certain spot in the timing and then it will stop or stall.

Your blanket probably caused an out of balance on the tub which caused the washer to stop in the middle of the cycle. The lock switch is a time delayed switch. Requires several minutes before it is activated to release. When washing single items you need to add another clothing item of approximately the same weight to create a balance during spin.

In the Spin cycle, after 9 minuts, it will stop with a "UL".


"UL" means "Unbalanced Load" - make sure the washer isn't overloaded first or if you are doing rugs, blankets, or lots of jeans, split the load. You can also try running an empty or light load and see how the machine behaves.

If you still have the problem, you may have some issues with the drum bumpers, etc., but try the easy things first.

Fast flashing


The outlet pump could be triggered because the "anti flood device" polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer has detected a water leak from a leaky hose or water spil) This device automatically puts the pump out motor on and stops any washing process.You need to dry the base of the washer and determine what caused the water spill. This should start the washing prosess.

Washer starts, runs a few seconds and stops,does it over and over


Sound like the internal overload on the motor may be going out .Thsi is usuaklly due to bad or worn bearings. If you know anything abotu electricity,take a voltage reading at the motor whe it is in the run cycle(when it stops) If you stil have have the 110Volts to the motor then the motor is bad and need to be replaced.If you do not then you wil have to look elsewhere for the problem.

Washer motor tries to start then stops


There are a number of possibilities but the easiest to check is if the brushes are worn down which would need to be physically checked or you could have a loose or broken wire in the motor block then you get on to the possibilities you highlighted which would require an engineer to test them.
