Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.

I had the same problem with our Frigidaire front loader. Had to take the washer completely apart and traced the problem to broken two out of three arms that attach the basket to the shaft in the back that turns it. I had to purchase new basket for $200.00 and replace it by myself. If I had it replaced by service man, it would probably cost $400.00 or almost half of new machine.
There could be other, less expensive causes. There are springs and cables that counterweigh the weight of the basket. These springs sometime un-attach themselves due to the vibration of the machine. Simple re-attachment of these may correct the problem.
Any of these solutions require the washer to be opened and the exact cause diagnosed. Try not to use the washer untill it is repaired as continuing vibrations and banging will do more and more damage to the machine.
If you decide to do further investigation on your own, make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting to open the back covers!

No, this is not the kind of service that you deserve. I would call the Whirlpool Telephone # that is on your washer or instruction manual. I would report the store that has done this to you and let Whirlpool deal with them. Whirlpool may want to pull their products from this Merchant. While I had Whirlpool on the phone, I would advise them that I was going to call my attorney if no reasonable quick solution between the 2 of you could be reached. I would also let Whirlpool know that I intended on Calling the Local Better Business Bureau and report the Kottayam Authorized Whirlpool Dealership of the treatment that I had received from them. Don't make idle threats. They get you no where. Who knows, Whirlpool may end up giving you a brand new washer. It sounds like the float is out of it now, because usually when the water gets to the level that you have chosen; it should shut off. Good Day and Best of Luck to You. Let me know what happens, OK? Thanks.

Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.
The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.
A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
This is a very simple and inexpensive repair that you can do without the assistance of a repairman. The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. The part number for a replacement for your washer is 3949238.
NOTE: You DO NOT need to drain the washer to replace the lid switch. Once a defective switch is replaced, the washer will drain.
If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an Electrolux
Im taking it that you have a squirrel cage motor.(motor without bruhes) Locate the capacitor and replace it. Most of the time its the capacitor that has malfunctioned and that will stop the spin cycle. If you have a soft start.(an electronic control), then check the brushes. Possibly need someone to help as the motor will need to be removed to gain access to the brushes. Check length. must be at least 25 mm.(otherwise not enough tension). Make sure power is pulled out when doing this repair.
