Question about Avanti W1092F Front Load Washer
Can you hear the motor running when it is supposed to be spinning? If yes, the drive belt may be broken (heat is bad for belts). To replace the belt, the top must be opened, then the front panel removed to access the belt area. Open a short rear panel at the bottom to release the belt tension device and to thread the new belt over the motor and idler pulleys. Place the belt over the drum first, then work with the motor area next. If you did not hear the motor running, then the motor itself may need to be replaced. Replace the drive belt along with the motor for best performance. Have you made sure that there is power at the dryer socket?

1) Verify a circuit breaker
2) Advance the timer
control dial slowly 360 degrees-
If the washer starts
spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are
fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or
the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.
If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is
attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken,
replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding
the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until
there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.
3) Visually inspect the lid
safety switch- Is it loose or cracked?
If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.
4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.
