KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is this washer ?

KevinWhiteJA :

the problem seems to be with either the motor or the spin speed push button...also please let me know where is that popping sound coming from

Customer:

Not exactly sure of age. 4-5 years it is thought.

Customer:

Because popping noise occurs when it is on full spin and only intermitently it is difficult to decide where noise originates.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK...most likely it is the switch itself that is bad and will need replacement

Customer:

Ok will see about replacing the switch
