Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
My 4 year old Maytag PAV 2300 AWW never agitates, but will spin sometimes, (one cycle only) then needs to wait 45 minutes to spin again. I have taken it apart and the trasmission's spindle's teeth looks fine and the bottom plastic agitator's teeth look fine as well.
I ran a cycle, with a small load of water, without all of the plastic agitator parts to watch if the metal spindle turned, which I am assuming is the top part of the transmission, and it did not turn. The spin cycle runs (ocassionally) with clothes and water in it, but never the agitator. The machine is running though and all of the water cycles adding water and draining normally on time.
I think the spin cycle running after waiting 45 minutes is especially strange. I don't know how that relates to the agitator never working????How can I tell if it is the transmission or the timer? Or could anything else be the problem and how can I diagnose it?
I really appreciate your expertise and my wife would really appreciate me fixing this thing,
Ive never seen a Maytag washer, but I think know the principle. So! I think the motor turns in one direction to wash & the opposite direction to spin. Now, if the transmission is very stiff in the 'wash mode', that could be why its not washing. The motor could be overheating & the thermal trip in the motor cutting off the electricity supply hence having to wait 45 mins for it to cool.
Not too sure! However I think I am on the right track. Let me know please
