My wife is due on September 8th and i have no way to wash diapers right now. I've been banging my head against the wall for a while on this one. Here's what i know.
Kenmore 400 agitates but won't drain or spin.
Lid switch jumped
motor/trans coupler okay
pump free of debris
motor start capacitor tests within rating
not affected by wire wiggling
with the motor sitting on the floor(dismounted) connected to the wiring harness, the motor starts and runs fine in the agitate direction but just buzzes in the drain/spin direction. If i grab the shaft (with my fingers) and give it a boost it spins right up. In both directions i can hear the centrifugal switch throw to the run windings.
Add that this washer is used but has probably done about 50 loads total then sat for 9 months.
to me its either the timer or the motor but don't want to just throw parts at this washer willy nilly. any thoughts?? open to all. Thanks
