i arrived on sight to find the washer full of water. after checking the lid switch to see if that was the culprit i found that it was not at fault after jumping it out of the system. no motor sounds are heard when pushing the washer into the wash/spin cycles. the washer will fill to the specified level on the water level selector switch and will continue to fill when the switch is moved up to the next size larger.

nothing changes by switching to delicate/heavy/normal settings.

any insight into the cause of such issues would be great. thank you for your time.

my suspected culprits are

motor is bad- since i never heard it run
timer is bad- the machine fills up but doesnt move to the wash cycle after the fillup

Lid Switch only affects Spin on that model.
Does the Washer Motor hum at all ?
May be a bad Motor Capacitor.
Also check the Motor Connector .... loose ?

yes i checked the motor connection unplugged and replugged. no the washer motor does not make any noise at all after filling up to the water level. i did however not check the motor capacitor, i honestly don't remember even seeing one, where would it be located?

how about the timer could a bad connection on it be causing issues like on other models?

Capacitor shown on wiring diagram,
but I don't see it in the Parts Diagram.
Sometimes it's optional, but the Motor would probably make some noise if it were bad.
Yes, could be a bad connection at the Timer.

Ensure that water level switch is closing voilet to tan when tub is full - capacitor may be mounted to inside of rear cabinet panel (red wires) and the wires can break off, but normally will hum if that is the case.
