I greatly appreciate the quick response and the detailed answer! Thank you so much. So far I have verified it's not the lid. Working on verifying it's the coupler.

Thanks again!



Do you even found out what was wrong with your washer?

Chosen Solution

Cause 1

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not spin. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test the lid switch for continuity. If the lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 2

Motor Coupling

The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. If the washer is overloaded, the motor coupling will fail in order to protect both the motor and transmission. The motor coupling can also fail due to normal wear. Inspect the motor coupling to determine if it is broken. If the motor coupling is broken, replace it.

Cause 3

Drive Belt

Inspect the drive belt to determine if it is broken or if it is loose on the pulleys. If the drive belt is broken or loose, replace it.

Would it cause the pulsating click with the lights dimming on the same circuit?


@shrpwr MATT A short or something drawing a lot of power. Be very careful with this one as the machine may be electrically hot and zap you. This might be one to have a technician look at. IT's scary to me!
