How many ohms should I get when checking the motor. Also does the motor control the wash cycle as well or just the pump. My machine is draining but not all the way.
ANSWER Willy, you should have a resistance of approximately 40 ohms through the motor winding. Yes, the pump motor does "control" both, the wash and drain cycles. Drain is accomplished by the drain solenoid WD21X10268 on the pump assembly . when the timer/control board advances into the drain cycle, the solenoid activates, flips the flapper inside the pump assembly and the machine drains. If you haven't checked yet, you'll need to verify that there are no clogs in the drain hose, remove the sump cover and check for clogs and debris in the sump. If all's OK, you'll need to remove the pump assembly and check or replace the impeller assembly for damaged vanes.
