Question about Washing Machines
Run the washer empty on the lowest water level. Cold will save energy. Watch it fill, close the lid, stay there. Don't advance the timer no matter how tempting as this could skip a program interval. When you hear the water draining listen for a sound change and open the top and see if it drained completely -- pumped out empty. Close the lid so the cycle can continue. During the spin cycle open the lid. See if the drum was really turning fast -- it will be slowing down as soon as you open the lid because that stops the motor. If everything seems normal, then the problem may be transmission or belt slipping under load. Do you have the problem only on large loads? If the spin speed is slow during the test then the transmission is not shifting in to high, controlled by a solenoid. Check the solenoid for power during the spin cycle. Operate the washer on blocks or outside on saw horses to see full function of underneath parts and have access to electrical wires for testing. Use precautions testing and plug into a GFCI. Take your car battery jumper cables and clamp to a water pipe ground and to the underneath frame where the motor mounts. This should keep you from getting electricuted standing in water and holding a test meter.
