Question about Washing Machines
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
If the machine starts, fills and goes through its' agitate cycle fine, the problem is likely not in the motor or transmission.
This type of washer uses a reversible motor. When turning one way, the machine agitates the clothes.
When the timer gets to the spin cycle, the motor reverses, drives the pump (directly from the motor) for a period of time and then goes into spin cycle.
This appears then that is is either the connection to the motor itself or the timer.
The timer is driven by a separate motor on the control panel so if the contacts for the spin cycle are worn, the timer will move but the motor won't turn on.
