Fist thing to check is the lid switch. make sure it is making a clicking sound when you open and close the lid. if not then it may need to be replaced.

  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

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.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Washer does not seem to change cycles. Fills and agitates fine, but does not seem to go further than the first cycle.Suspect timer issue.


    Good day,
    If it fills and agitates and gets thru the first cycle, but won't pump out and spin, then it would be a bad lid switch. Check the following clip for more info.

    Stuck in spin


    Hi!

    If the Washer is stuck in spin then either the timer or a cold-water supply problem is causing this :
    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.
    It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water

    Agitating to many times


    Have you verified that you do not have a siphoning condition? The following link explains:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

    Please double check the installation and placement of your drain hose. If the top of the standpipe is sealed off, or if the drain hose is shoved too far down into the standpipe, this can create a vacuum. This can cause the washer to constantly siphon out of the wash tub on the fill cycle and the washer will continue to fill (as needed) to maintain the water level. In other words, what may appear to be a significant problem, can be something as simple as a simple placement issue with the drain hose.

    If you have further questions, please let me know. If the diagnosis is not correct, please post back and also let me know, so that I may be able to assist you further. I hope this helps you.
