Sorry, forgot to mention that I bypassed the lid switch as well.
Here is another video that might be better than the first one. Notice:
- the sound of the motor while the drum is not spinning
- when I stop the washer (by pushing in the knob), the motor sound stops, and then the drum catches and spins a little bit
- when I restart the washer (by pulling the knob back out), the drum starts to go into the spin cycle
Could this be an issue with the brake?
I understand it could be the timer, but I'm trying to exhaust all other possibilities before shelling out $100 for the part.
