Based on your post, if you mean manually advancing the timer it will drain, it's a coupler. If you mean manually activating the lid switch, it is the lid switch or lid switch strike. ( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable toALL...based on the model provided, it cover's yours)
Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.
This is usually caused by the motor coupler. This is very inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru this disassembling and replacing a motor coupler in a direct drive machine. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting and replacement will be the same. You can also enteryour model # for your specific model to get diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
On Whirlpool brand made machines the drive coupler between
the motor and the transmission is probably stripped out or broken and needs to
be replaced. Keep in mind that Whirlpool also manufactures:
Estate, Roper, Kitchen Aid, some Kirkland and
some Kenmore washers. All have the
same coupler that gets stressed and breaks. A cause for this often times is
overloading the machine.
After inspecting and finding the problem, make
sure you have the model number and call your local appliance parts
store or repair center and they probably have your part in stock. Repairing a stripped out coupler is pretty easy for the doit yourselfer. I suggest watching this video before attempting the repair: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc
Well, this is one of those times when it is important to note what brand of washer you have.
The fact that you hear something humming tells me that the motor is turning and that tells me the lid switch is activated and functioning correctly

Most other brands use a belt drive system and the belt probably burnt in two or broke. Again the cause in most cases is overloading.

Maytags have both belt and direct drive washers. UNPLUG machine. No numbers for model... If it is a belt drive machine you should inspect the belt for damages (broken, worn out or off the pulleys) and tension replace if needed. If it is a direct drive it is probably the drive coupler. From below you can remove the pump and motor by removing the strapps that clamp them together. pump first, they just pull off after unstrapping them. The coupler has three parts and comes as a repair kit. The coupler prongs and or the rubber should be obviously broken or worn out if it is the problem. Replace with new parts and reassemble... Yes fixable in about an hour. Online parts for about $14.00.
probably wouldnt look under hte agitator for problem. although the trick is to hold t he agitator while looseninghte bolt, it will then lifts right off after bolt removed., i would remove hte cover and perhaps look for a broken spring , bleach sometimes falls through rusting out metal brackets
I was having the same problem with mine so I took it apart. There is a plastic coupler-like device that connects the drive motor to shaft which allows your "spin" cycle to commence. This coupler has posts in side it but they are under the little belt. My posts were all broken so the bottom piece of the coupler was spinning but the top was not, so it just made a humming noise. This part is available at
