Well, this washer has been repaired many times, but now I'm stumped. About 2 weeks ago, just quit at end of first spin cycle. No issues until that moment. First, checked pump. Clear. Then turned shaft on motor. Agitator worked. Then tried other direction. Basket turns. Coupling OK. Removed motor and jumpered lid switch. Motor still just hummed.
At this point, I assume motor. Ordered new motor off Ebay (realize that may have been an error). Got new motor, installed and put everthing back together. Worked fine.
For one week. (many loads !)
Now, exact same as original symptoms. Disassemble (again) follow same sequence. Motor all by its lonsome on floor just hummed. Truned shaft whilst it was humming and varoom ! Put it on another cycle and worked fine other direction.
Now the bummer - reassembled (still full of clothes and water). Nothing but a hum.
Help ! Really like to fix this thing. What are the odds of the "new" motor being bad ? I would think pretty low.
