Agitation runs for about 30-40 sec, then switches off, then on/off every 10-20 sec until agitation cycle is complete. Agitation cycles take about 2x as long to complete due to this "resting." You can hear loud clicks from the motor area (as opposed to the timer) as the agitation cuts out/in. Switching on/off also occurs during the drain cycle.
(some noise from dryer running next to the washer)
Also, spin cycle does not work. These might be two separate problems but I suspect related.
Machine had motor and spin tube replaced circa 2010-2012 so I assume these not the problem.
Total cycle time is about 55 minutes vs. 24 normally.
Hopefully there is a simple solution: from the CA2762 parts list and wiring diagram, it's a bad motor start switch (relay?)--although i think the new motor came with the switch. Or the capacitor?
Any ideas/foretelling of doom (clutch mechanism?) appreciated.
