    This was most likely a washer cycle timer problem, but no matter since you replaced it.

Washer not spinning


Hi,

If you are neither spinning nor agitating and you can hear the motor running (humming or buzzing) the the problem is with the coupling. See the first link below to repair.

If the motor does not run, only fills, no drain, no buzz no hum then the problem is most likely with the lid switch, see the second link.There is video near the bottom of that page showing how to replace it. Let me know if this helps.

Not spinning or agitating


Most likely you have a bad belt or a defective lid switch.

What is the part that starts the wash cycle when the lid closes'


I assume that you mean the Lid Switch which keeps the washer from draining and spinning (in older models) and agitating, draining and spinning (in newer models) unless the lid is closed.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the section on the cabinet and / or console and you should see it.

Washer not agitating/spinning


chances are that this would be a worn out coupling.
easy to install for someone who is partly inclined.
part costs about 15$ and takes about 20 minutes to install.

Avanti spinning problem


One of the largest problems with this washer has been the lid switch, you must check it out with a ohm meter, if the switch quits you will lose power to the motor. Things can get caught between the tanks as well, this machine is bad for the center bearing tightening up and the spin will quit. This is a new close up pictureof a typical lid switch. You can temporarily join the wires together to test the motor and washer operations.

No spinning or agitating


If it has a mechanical timer switch, (the main control knob) that is possibly the culprit. The timer switch is basically the "brain" of this type of washer. I had this problem on a washer.
