Question about Washing Machines
Most of these spin related problems are attributed to a lid switch malfunction. A washer
that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle
and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly
caused by a lid switch. The lid switch is usually mounted under the
washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It
is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike")
through a small hole on the rim
of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the
lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact.
Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then
inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash
tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.
