Hi There,

 

  This is my first post so please be kind. I have been on the website and found lots of useful help from you guys. My question today seems pretty common for this machine. It will go through the complete wash cycle fine until it gets to the final spin. Sometimes it does the whole wash no problem. other times it won't do the final spin. In order to complete the final spin, I either have to put the knob directly on the final spin cycle or re-wash the load again. I initially thought it would be the timer, but after reading so many post i am not sure if I should replace the timer or the speed control assembly? sorry for the long post.

 

Thanks

 

Sleepy

when it should be in high-speed Spin, but doesn't

check to see if the Door is locked.

Is it really locked ?

If so, then unplug the Washer Power Cord from wall Outlet.

Can you open the Door right away ? (bad)
OR only after a few minutes ? (good)

Door remained locked after I unplugged it from the wall. I tried it 3 times all with the same result. It took about  2 to 3 minutes to allow me to open after it was unplugged.

 

What do I do next?

 

Thanks

Door Latch is good ...

Is the Washer Draining all of the water before Spin ?

no, the washer doesn't drain the water before the spin. Unless it completes the whole job, of course.

Washer won't high-speed Spin until the water is drained ..

Has this Washer worked OK up till now at this location ?

Any changes in the Drain Hose, etc ?

The washer hasn't been moved from its position since it was purchased. I assume the water drains when it runs a complete wash cycle. I checked the drain and hoses, they appear to be fine. I have noticed that if I run a "short cycle" wash it runs through without issue at this point. Should I replace the Drain pump?

I would say to replace the drain pump from what you have described.  The way these pumps wear out will make them intermittently bind up and not run, (they will sometimes work OK then out of the blue not run when power is applied to the pump).

 

If the machine is over 5-6 years old and is used quite regularly you can almost be guaranteed the pump is worn out.

 

Remove the pump and check to make sure nothing is stuck in the impeller area and jamming the pump, (bra underwires are a common find that will stop these pumps).  Once you have the pump out see if the impeller shaft has a lot of play in the bearing, if it does then that is your problem.
