Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
My washer has just started to stop everything motor related. In the correct timer position, the washer will fill. But after the motor runs for a very short time it will just stop. If I let it unplugged for a while it will then run again for a short time, then stop again. When this happens I hear a "click". The motor sounds ok? Is there a thermister or any kind of heat related reley? If the timer motor is bad? Can it still fill, but not run the motor or should I say cut the motor operation off?
If in spin the water drains ok then your coupler is faulted, If not the motor is faulted.

If the washer will not agitate, spin or drain it's a motor problem, capacitor or a broken motor coupler. It's either a loose wire connection on the start circuit or failed contact in the timer. When you say that the motor hums during spin, that would indicate that the motor has run voltage, but it has no start voltage. It needs both start and run voltage in order to get the motor started and running. The start voltage gets the motor started, and once started all it needs is run voltage to keep it running. The only difference between agitate and spin is that the polarity is reversed in order to start the motor in the opposite direction. The reversal of the polarity is controlled by timer contacts 7 and 14.
Most likely it's a timer or loose wire connection.
