Motor will not kick in for the spin cycle (hear nothing from motor) play with the switch no issue with water delivery no matter permanent press etc.It was the wife's third load 12years old was thinking part #20 or the over load sw I read in some places.
For model number LTE6234DQ0
Hi Kevin, thank you for the question. If you can kind of hear the motor try to start and then it just hums then the switch will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Washer will not start after filling without regard to the switch position, no sound, the motor does not appear to attempt to run, nothing at all. I am thinking the main switch what do you think?
For model number LA7700XSW0
Hi Steve, Thank you for the question, I would check the lid switch, PartSelect Number PS11723153, This seems to be the most likely problem when the appliance will not run after filling with water. If the lid switch is defective it can think the lid is open and prevent the washer to proceed with the next cycle. Good luck with the repair!

Washer cycles through until it gets to the spin cycle and then doesn't spin, I've all the obvious things, after looking was wondering about the or # 20 the motor switch, any help is appreciated. Thank you.
For model number LTE6234DQ0
Hello Jerry, thank you for inquiring. For this symptom you will want to replace either the Direct Drive Motor Coupling part PS1485646, the Clutch Assembly part PS334641, or the Drive Belt part PS11722115. We hope this helps.

Kenmore washer does not agitate,it spins for rinse.Motor dont come on to wash
For model number 11023812100
Hi Herman, Thank you for your question. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the agitator directional cogs, the direct drive motor coupling, the lid switch assembly, the clutch assembly and the gearcase. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Recently my washer has not been able to rinse water properly. I bought a new water pump but the problem still remains. When i put my washer to the rinse command, i hear humming sounds from the motor, the agitator won't spin and the water won't. The only time the water would pump is when i use the low spin. Can you help? Please and thank you.
For model number LSR7233HQ0
Hi Martin, Thank you for your question. There are some other parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the direct drive motor coupling, the clutch assembly, the lid switch, the agitator directional cogs, the geargase and the gear and pinion. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

At the last spin cycle you can hear a click and the spin starts, and clicks again and the motor speeds up and then clicks again and slows down. It speeds up and slows down as it is clicking and then no motor sound. Thanks
For model number 11082873120
Hello John, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: clutch assembly, direct drive motor coupling, main drive motor switch, direct drive basket drive kit with clutch, the gearcase and the drive motor. Hope this helps!

After 31 years of continuous use, it played out.. symptons: on start up it just hums, no agitation, no spins cycles, the valves work fills and drains. there is no belt on this units as its direct drive. but there is some type of belt that is worn.. but not cause of this just wonder its really a belt or a seal/stripping of some type, its does not leak. i saw you made a comment it scould be the switch, (meaning the main time control switch or the main motor switch and it the main motors switch , is there a way to manually (safely) manually trip it to validate thats is the issue. i really want to fix this machine. its like part of the family and to worth the effort.
For model number LA5280XTW0
Hello Jorge, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on testing the timer itself. I would suggest checking the lid switch as well, which is part number W10820036. If the unit is filling up, but wont agitate or spin, the issue could be the lid switch assembly, which activates to allow the unit to go through to the agitate and spin cycle. I hope this helps!

Hello, i was running a light load and the machine stopped at the rinse cycle and tripped the breaker and there was a burnt smell. I unplugged it and waited. It restarted but still stops before the rinse. I talked to a repair person and he thinks it might be the switch. Any further thoughts?Thank you, debora
For model number Maytag MGT3800TW0
Hello Debora, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: lid switch kit, and main drive motor switch. Also check the water inlet valve and drain pump, and make sure that you are getting cold water into the machine. Hope this helps!

I started the washing machine (small load). The machine filled with water but stopped completely. The control board is blank. I checked the switch and it's okay. The control board is good also. The power is good from the wall plug. Nothing works.
For model number 11022056100
Hello Charlie, thank you for your question. We would recommend testing the control panel itself and the ribbon connector that runs from the control panel to the board. Sometimes a bad connection or ribbon connector can cause the unit to not function. I hope this helps!

I have a Maytag mvwc6esww1. It recently started having issues switching into the spin cycle. It's happening roughly 80% of the time now. It will sound like it is switching and then it will stop and you only hear motor humming.
For model number maytag mvwc6esww1
Hello, thank you for your inquiry! If your tub will not spin but you can hear the motor, you will need to replace the switch. We hope this helps!
