Question about Washing Machines
An old machine with a new problem!
The washer cycle for washing works fine, but during rinse cycles it often craps out. It just stops as though unplugged. If I open and closed the top door a few times it sometimes starts back up.
Note: it doesn't happen everytime!
Also, opening the door during the spin cycle does not stop the machine like it should.
I would say that based on your problem description that the lid /door switch has a loose or faulty contact .. If you open and close it a few times..it starts to spin and yet when you open it.. it doesn't always stop the spinning.. It is either the switch or the actuator that bumps that switch.. That is where I would begin diagnosing the problem... Hope that helps..
