I broke down and bought another brand new washer, second one in less then 5 yrs
as a matter of principal I am fixing the old, I have to many new parts installed
I have everything fixed but a leaking problem through the over flow vent in top of the
tub at the beginning of the drain cycle, when I left the lid up and down the draining
and spin speed increases noticeably. I have took out and checked the pump all the lines
everything seems fine and clear,
Here's exactly what happens maybe someone out there has experienced this.
the fill and wash cycles work normal, the problem seems to start once the wash cycle
ends, I hear clicks and buzzing from the timer, then the draining and spinning begins very
slowly, wayters leaks from vents, but if I open and close the lid, draining and spinning
seem to work good from that point.on, until the rinse cycle, then it starts again. if I let it
go unintended it will spill out the over flow, until it pumps down slowly.
I'm thinking maybe timer short or something, or burned out motor during the drain cycle
when it has to get started the beginning of the drain used to really pump out, and the
pump works by how fast the tub spins right?
Can a motor work fine for washing and rinsing but be weak at staring a drain cycle spin?
once it gets going it pumps great.
Any advice on trouble shooting this, I'm stumped
