If you can hear the motor running with no agitation then it is either the Coupler (connector between the motor and transmission) or the transmission it's self... If the motor doesn't run then it could be the lid switch..

Washer fills and agitates but wil not empty or spin. I tried to bypass the lid switch and still same problem. How do I check the timer.


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
OK first lets get back to the basics
First investigate these things fully
It doesn't drain dot_lineone.gif 1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

3. TIMER OR CYCLE SELECTOR
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. THERE IS NO REPAIR FOR THE TIMER

Hi Good Day, I brought speedqueen LWS-16NW washing machine and timer is not working properly. I have replaced timer but still it is not working. Problem description: we have connected washing machine...


Hello Mohiddin,
The most probable cause of your troubles is the lid switch, the washer will fill and agitate with the lid open but the lid must be closed for it to spin(yes i know the lid is closed but if the switch is defective it doesnt think it is closed)

Hope this helps
Good luck,Gene

Washer stopped at the drain cycle Model LSR8233JQ1


Could be either a bad lid switch or a bad water valve.
Set the timer dial to SPIN and turn the machine on.
If it spins the lid switch is OK. If it does not spin the lid switch must be replaced.
Next,set the timer dial on a wash cycle and set the water temperature knob to COLD water. If it fills,the lid switch is bad. If it does not fill the water valve is bad or the cold screen filter is clogged.
If the COLD does not fill,turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the machine water valve and check for a clooged screen.
If it does not fill with COLD water and the screen is clear,replace the water valve.

Kenmore 80 series washer, replaced lid switch already, will fill, wash (agitate) but stops before draining and spinning and will not run. Is the timer the next step for replacement? Model: 110.29852991


First check the continuity of the wires in the lid switch and the switch itself. Make a jumper wire to attach to the lid switch connector on the washer cabinet and set it to spin. If still no spin,replace the timer.

Spin/drain cycle won't start


If the timer gets to the rinse cycle and stops,
Check the lid switch for continuity. If no continuity replace the lid switch.
If the timer continues through rinse and spin without doing either, replace the timer.

Waher won't spin


Either a bad lid switch or a bad direct drive coupling or a bad timer.
Fill the machine with water. In the wash mode observe the agitator. Is it moving back and forth? If no, replace the direct drive coupling.
If yes, it does move back and forth, with the lid closed, advance the timer to the spin cycle. If it does not spin, raise the lid then close the lid. Does it spin? If yes, replace the timer.If no, replace the lid switch..

Will not drain or spin


Unless you jarred the machine it's the timer. You can check this by bypassing the lid switch and seeing if it will cycle.
