Doing a dryer repair when customer asked to look at washer that was not spin drying clothes completely. The tub seemed out of balance when spinning. The lid switch sounded funny when I put magnet on it & would not complete circuit unless I put lid down.
Motor is not an inverter motor, it has a capacitor & has a 115Vac rating. One speed motor according to repair clinic's replacement. It has a transmission also.
When tub spins empty it seems out of balance, customer does not know if goes out of balance. When I had it in spin cycle the tub stopped spin engaging the brake a couple of time seen seemed to spin full speed. Because of time constraint (other calls) I did not have time to explore further (customer was not prepared to pay for more work). Will schedule for another time.
I am thinking that the lid switch is failing. Timer is counting down while tub is not spinning I think, therefore loads are not completely spun dry. The out of balance scenario everything seems OK as far as suspension goes.
