Q:

Washer stops after wash ccyle (agitates) and does not go through rinse cycle and spin cycle

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the lid is not shutting properly or if the left lid hinge is not striking and closing the lid switch, the washer will not operate in the agitation cycles nor in the spin and drain cycles. If you're certain the washer will operate and agitate, then it's not a lid switch issue. If the washer motor will not operate after it fills or if it will not operate in any of the spin and drain cycles, then I would suspect a lid switch issue. When the lid is shut, the left hinge must strike the lid switch actuator and close the lid switch in order to complete the path of the neutral side of the power cord to the motor.

If it agitates but the motor will not operate in spin with the lid shut, it could have loose wire connection at the timer or possibly a faulty timer.

The lid switch on this model is located under the control panel on the left side. To place the control panel in the service position, remove the two screws at the back of the control panel at each control panel end caps. Slide the control panel towards the front and lift it up and hinge it over the rear panel. Note: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

You may just need to bend the hinge arm slightly to insure it strikes and closes the lid switch each time the lid is closed. I added an image below of the lid switch.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Amit630; The drain pump is driven directly off one end of the motor shaft. If the there was something jammed in the drain pump, the motor would also just hum in the wash cycles too. The timer is likely the faulty component if there are no loose wire connections on the red and yellow wires at the motor or timer. In order for the motor to start, the motor must have 120 volts on the start windings and 120 volts on the run windings. If the motor is only getting the run voltage, the motor will not start and it will just hum. The direction of which way the motor starts is relied on red and yellow wires. The timer reverses the polarity of the voltage between the red and a yellow wire which dictates which direction the motor is will start and run. The voltage can be measured across the red and yellow wires during spin. If 120 volts is not present, the motor will just hum. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
