Is there a way to CHECK the motor with it pulled from the washer (along with the transmission and drive shaft)? I figure there must be a sensor somewhere which will not allow the motor to start until the water is at the set level. Can this be bypassed (jumpered), so I can verify if the motor is running ... without having to re-install everything and fill it with water? That's a huge amount of work, and it still may be another part (i.e. clutch, tub drive, or transmission) causing the no-spin problem.
The videos on how to remove the parts is great. There needs to be similar videos on how to IDENTIFY the problem through a series of tests. I'm quite sure in a repair shop they don't just go through replacing parts to find the problem. Right?
Any help in this regard would be appreciated.
ANSWER Hello Dan-D-Lion. If you test the lid switch 3949238 it can prevent the unit from running.You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
