This closet-dwelling washer will fill with water and stop; advancing the timer manually will start it spinning but no power to the drain pump. The lid will not lock so I changed the switch/lock, but that didn't solve anything. I traced wires around, particularly a black/red from the water valves to the lock to the timer. Somehow that leg of power is not making it to the pump, and it won't agitate. :yucky: I think I'm missing a simple solution here. Does anyone have any suggestions?

just to clarify ...

It will Fill
Then the Timer stops ?
It won't Agitate at all
It won't Drain
It will Spin if set to "Spin"

Do you have the wiring diagram for this unit that you can scan in and post? If it's easier, you can fax it to me toll-free at 866-315-4505.

Better Yet ,,,,,, (washer diagram page 12) : http://appliantology...-laundrycenter/

The Timers in those things switch neutral side, the Black/Red you mention is the hot feed in. It arrives through the motor overload.

Guess I have to purchase a subscription; can't download the washer diagram. I had servicetech... for a year. Seems like there was better information on here for free. :yes:

your machine will have it's own diagram placed nicely in an envelope stuck on the back of the front transition panel between the units

I don't have a readable diagram. A new washer timer solved the issues :thumbsup:
