Question about Washing Machines
I fixed mine by replacing the door lock they are about 50.oo
The door lock has two locks, one is instant when you push start the other is a time lock, so you cant open the door for a little if you stopped it during the spin cycle. The problem is what they call the WAX switch or heater. When power is applied to this WAX lock it takes 30 to 60 sec. to lock and to unlock when power is removed.
The machine will not spin, if this lock is not working correctly.
You cant bypass it by jumping the power from one side of the shitch to the other. The board moniters the power draw and when the switch closes the lock contacts. You can how ever open up the lock very easy and bend the contacts closer to get you by for the weekend. unplug washer, remove the two screws on the back of the top panel behind the washer, remove top, open front door and remove the two screws that hold the lock, reach in an pull up the lock, remove wires, now open up lock and bend the piont contacts in side or install new switch.

Hi burwellkaren - Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose or pump is clogged and needs cleaning. If not, then the unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the control board not communication correctly, faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or something more severe like a damaged tub. I will personally recommend contacting a certified technician to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.
