Why is the solenoid overheating and smoking?
My Whirlpool top loader washing machine wouldn't go to the spin cycle. I changed the timer with no luck. I changed the solenoid, which went bad a year ago and was changed, and I got one load out of it. The second load, mid cycle, made the solenoid get hot and started smoking. I reinstalled the older solenoid and the machine started and this solenoid started getting very hot. What is going on?

Is this a good question?
