A friend contacted me concerned that her washing machine was working properly.

It no longer spins . . . but it still agitates (while door switch is engaged, nothing otherwise), fills with water, pumps out water. The motor does absolutely nothing when it should be spinning. No groans, grunts, or even clicks.

The belt looks great and I can turn the agitator by pulling on it. Also upon looking at the switches, wires and connections there are no obvious burnt, chaffed or broken wires.

If you are unable to devine the problem from the above information my next move is to take a volt/ohm meter to it and look for the not-so-obvious problems. Any guidance in this department would be appreciated.

I have read through the posts and was unable to find my exact set of problems.

Your sage advice is most graciously appreciated,

Richum

Check the continuity of the lid switch.

Sounds like you hasve lost power to the motor somewhere, recheck the lid switch and all wires to see if any are broken and make sure they are plugged onto the motor tight.  If all of this checks good, you could have a bad timer or speed selecter switch if this washer has one.

Thank you!

Before I went any further I removed and reseated the wires on the motor and it started working once we plugged it back into the wall. Much too easy. . .:)
