Question about Washing Machines
Does the machine have the capability to agitate? By this, I mean is the timer just not advancing or will the machine just not agitate? If it is capable of agitating, but the cycle just won't advance, it is usually caused by a faulty cycle timer. If it can't proceed the cycle because it can't agitate, then the problem could be a defective lid switch or some other defective component (motor coupling, transmission, etc.) Does it spin and pump out the water? I would check the lid switch first. It is inside the main housing near the door frame. The switch can be checked for continuity to see if it is faulty using an ohm meter or multimeter. If there is no continuity, the switch is defective and must be replaced.
As for your other question, and I don't know what the problem was with your old washers, but I really don't see how your water hook ups could cause a problem. As for your electrical hook up, you can meter the dryer cord for continuity and you can check that the outlet you are plugging into is providing the right voltage, but I think that it is probably just bad coincidence that you are experiencing similar problems to the ones you had in the past, although I have seen people who live in an area that has alot of power failures have problems, but it usually affects more than just one appliance or piece of electrical equipment.
Hope this helps and feel free to let me know any additional info that you think might be useful and I will do my best to help you figure it out. Best wishes.
