Question about Washing Machines
My washer was fine yesterday. today i got a load going, but it won't get past filling up the basin. i hear it running/clicking as if it is trying to get to the next step, but it won't start agitating. I also tried all the other cycles, but nothing will work. I realize it is an old washer, i just need to know where to start looking for broken parts.
I know this is an old post but, the most common reason this problem happens is because the timer fails to advance to the next cycle. There is a complicated escapement linkage between the timer motor and the timer cam inside the switch that likes to screw up. It usually burns off one of the sets of points so you can still have fill but no spin or fill and spin but no agitate. The most common set of points to burn off would probably be the set that relates to the spin cycle as the most amperage is flowing to the motor while under the strain of spin cycle. Remedy? Get a new timer switch probably about $50.00 American
