Question about Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
Most likely the selector switch for load size is bad, and or water level sensor is bad. Or water fill valves problem. A temporary fix is to turn off the hot and or cold water supply valves when "full enough". A pain, but a temporary solution. You may want to consider cost to repair vs replacement, possibly with lightly used.

There are two possible causes. The most likely cause is the lid switch, which is supposed to keep you from sticking your hand into the moving basket. On many washers this only keeps the machine from spinning, but on other models it prevents agitating as well. The other possibility is the water level switch, but that usually causes no filling or overfilling if it's bad.
Both parts are available from Sears (www.searspartsdirect.com) and many other online sources. (I normally use the Sears site to find a part number if I don't already know it, then search for that number on Google. It's a great way to find good prices on more costly parts.) There are also a number of sites with detailed information about how to remove the cabinet to get at the parts if you want to try doing it yourself. Replacing these parts is pretty simple if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some mechanical ability.
If you'd rather have someone else repair the machine, this would normally be about a 1 hour plus parts charge for an appliance technician. It isn't time for a new washer yet.

Hi. your timer assembly is faulty. it is not initiating the spin and proper wash cycle due to this malfunction. the timer is responsible for the actions and commands. if its defective, it will not carry out the initiations correctly.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...
