Dear William, I guess first you have to check if the start switch is shorted. When you turn on the machine, does it automatically go into cycle? If yes, then your start switch is faulty. Otherwise, you may have to replace your timer/sequencer.
You can try to reset control board///unplug washer for one min/plug unit back in within 5 seconds open and close lid 5 times after you do that wait a min then unplug wait a min plug back in and lets hope she works..hope this helps good luck need more help contact me.. thanks for voting
I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.
I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.
WHEN YOUR WASHING THE LID MUST BE SHUT BEFORE IT WILL GO INTO THE SPIN CYCLE. UNDER THE LID YOU WILL SEE A PROBE THE PUSHES THE SWITCH DOWN WHEN THE LID IS SHUT. THESE SWITCHES WEAR OUT , ONE THING TO TRY WHEN THE WASHER TRIES TO GO ONTO SPIN TAKE A NON MATALIC ITEM AND PUSH THE SWITCH DOWN AND SEE IF THE WASHER GOES INTO THE SPIN CYCLE, IF IT DOES THE SWITCH IS NOT BEING PUSHED DOWN FAR ENOUGH TO MAKE THE SWITCH WORK
THIS IS VERY COMMON ON ALL WASHERS
dear zoofan.lets see hum.....to agaitate the motor goes one direction.to spin useing the same belt it goes the oposing direction.so when spins lid switch completes curcit to motor then it would spin so if click you hear is the motor protector switch [its like a curcit breaker] kicksout that means you lid switch is working. but could the noise be the timer advancing? timer makes clicking noieses also.then that would put into question your lid switch.but you said it starts again after a few minutes.if thats a sure thing then it ,your motor is involved but a possiable is somthing is between the tubs[thats a visiual inspection]sock,any clothing or if had a nail or somthing of that sort going thru small holes in inner tub then jaming or draging on the outer tub that could stop the tub but most of the time the motor would go and would burn the belt.hope i gave you a few clues,God bless ,tom
