Hello all,

 

I've had this washer for a few years and it just stopped during the spin cycle or agitation. I can start the wash cycle from the start and it will fill but when it comes time to agitate it machine won't turn. I can manually rotate it and eventually get it to either spin or agitate. It seems the timer makes an audible buzzing noice when it is time for the drum to move and wont stop until I manually move the drum. Also at times I can get the faint smell of burning. I have replaced parts that come in the thrust bearing kit and that hasn't remedied the problem. I also jumped the switch wires on the lid switch so I'm fairly confident that is not the issue. I'm contemplating replacing the timer but after research I'm not sure that will fix it either. I've also tipped the washer to see if the belt is binding or spinning and I don't see any issues. Anyone have advice on what direction I should go or some further troubleshooting?

If you're getting the 120vac to the motor (as opposed to junk voltage) then replace the motor:  http://www.repaircli...mber=CAV2005AWW

OR Motor Capacitor (if equipped)

definitely sounds like motor with the burning smell.  I'd check the capacitor if it has one 1st before buying the new one.  It's not uncommon for these new motors to get an open winding due to heat, the windings are aluminum and over time will open up.  It your start winding is bad it will act just like you are saying and start with a little help.  You could dial it in buy ohm checking the windings.  Also make sure you are getting good power to the motor.
