I have an old Maytag washer, model LAT9700AAL. Came with my house when I bought it 6yrs ago.
Yesterday, washer filled with water and stopped. No timer advancing, no motor running. Crickets.
When I manually advance the timer, the washer will drain, spin, and advance to rinse. At rinse, it fills and stops again. Advance the timer again, and the washer will drain/spin.
1) Can I rule out the lid switch? The drum stops spinning if I lift the lid.
2) Can I also rule out the timer? The washer acts like this on both cycle types and the timer seems to be getting power.
3) What am I looking at? Clutch/transmission? Burnt out motor in one direction?
<Gulp> Time to get a new washer? :vs_no_no_no: I'm asking because I'm a poor public servant, who already eats Ramen 3x/day.
