Question about Washing Machines
Please check your capacitor/motor starter.
The capacitor kick starts the motor. If you are able to kick start the motor by hand, then that initial transfer of energy which you exert by hand, is similar to what the capacitor does.
If you have a top loader, the Capacitor is located under the top control panel.
Let me know if you require additional help with the capacitor.

HI. This is actually a control issue. the control sector is faulty. A control sector can be a timer, or a control board. A timer can become unstable(worn dial cogs). This type of ware will cause the timer to skip certain cycles, or run past a designated operation during the cycle, as well. A control board has several logic chips and relays, that control the functions of the unit, during the cycle. if there is a circuit failure, this will cause the issues you are experiencing at this time. I would advise to verify the drain pump functions by jumping the motor. make sure that pump is ok. If the pump can be successfully jumped, this will confirm that the control sector is faulty. It must be replaced, in this case. I would like to pull the schematics for your unit, but i will need the entire model number, in order to achieve this. Please post the entire model number, if possible. Thanks..
