Nope..you are toasting your control board in back, and the loud bang is most likely a really unhappy motor mount or tub mount

The washer turns on and fills up but then stops. If you bang the lid a few times it will usually continue on the cycle and be fine. You have to repeat the lid banging for every load though. The lid...


Sounds like the switch that the lid presses is either broken or has been knocked loose.

Or the little plastic or metal "switch actuator" (the little poker) that presses the switch has broken.

I believe the washer thinks the lid is open because it will fill up but wont't wash until it knows the lid is shut.

My kenmore 70 series top loading machine will not drain and go into the rinse cycle what part needs to be replaced?


CHECK THE LID SWITCH, AND CHECK THE TIMER FOR A BURNED SMELL. IF SMELL PROBABLY TIMER. SOME WASHERS WOULD NOT GO INTO SPIN WITHOUT LID CLOSED, BUT WOULD AGITATE.

Zannusi fl 1082 very loud banging noise when spinning


This is most likely due to an unbalanced load. The drom on the washer is only mounted at the bottom and if your load is heavy on one side, when it spins, the centrifigual force will make the inner drum hit the outer and bang. When you hear this happenning, open the lid, drag some of the wet items from the heavy side to the light side and close the lid again. The banging should go away. If you want to see what is happenning (though you MUST BE CAREFUL when doing this), activate the spin with the lid open by suing a stick or small screwdriver to press on the switch that is normally depressed by a post on the lid. The unit will 'think' the lid is closed and will resume its cycle. You should see the major wobble during the spin. NEVER PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE WASHER WHILE IT IS MOVING>

NEC washer model NW652 stops after wash cycle


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

WILLNOT SPIN OR AGGITATE/IT WILL DRAIN


Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand, indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch, but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate or spin...

Whirlpool Top Loader LSB6000PQ0 fills up with water but that's it


you probably closed the lid to hard and broke the switch that tells the machine that it is closed. So the machine thinks the lid is open and for saftey reasons will not operate. I had the same problem. You can buy a new switch for about $10 or you can simply cuts the wires for the switch and wire them together. If you do this be warned that the machine will never know if the lid is open or closed. The machine will assume that the lid is always closed. But it will work also.

Replaced Motor Coupling but now I have electrical smell when running


You can test the washer with the case removed by by-passing the lid switch. You will need to jumper the two BLACK wires at the lid switch connector (where it connects to the timer).

With the case removed, and the washer UNPLUGGED. Locate the lid switch connector and jumper the two BLACK wires. Plug washer back in and carefully turn the timer on to start. You will be able to visibly inspect the washer while it is running. The Drive Motor should not start running until the washer fills completely. Set the washer on the lowest water setting to reduce fill time. Usually electrical smells are attributed to the Drive Motor and/or Start Capacitor. Make sure the connectors are all on properly and not loose. Loose or corroded connections can cause arcing and/or burning. Inspect all the wiring for any signs of chaffing or burning. Use caution not to touch any of the electrical connections while the washer is running or energized. Running the washer with the case removed is primarily for giving you a visual for any obvious signs of problems. Any wire and connector checks should be done with power removed. I hope this information helps you. Please post back if you require further assistance.
