OK - we seem to be going in circles here. I wasn't asking about the lid switch. I know that works fine. I was asking if there's a way to bypass the water level switch so that I can test the motor.
I also have been asking (and haven't gotten an answer yet), HOW does the motor transfer through to the basket in Spin Cycle? I keep asking questions and I keep getting answers that basically say to replace every part I ask about. That is NOT good diagnostic procedure ... and is quite expensive.
IF the motor works, AND if the transmission works as designed, AND if the clutch and coupler are all in perfect shape ... WHAT NEXT!? HOW do I identify what part has FAILED to keep the machine from spinning the drum in spin cycle, when ALL ELSE WORKS!!??
ANSWER Hello Dan-D-Lion. The problem is, you own a Kenmore and they do not release their wiring diagrams. Therefore, we can not advise you how to test the switch and the motor by giving you the wire colors. You will need to use the wiring diagram on the unit to do what you are wanting to do on testing the unit. This is the reason you were answered to test those parts you were asking about and if bad, replace those parts. Sorry we could not provide wiring colors, but your manufacturer prevents us from being able to provide that information to you. If you can not figure out how to test the parts on the unit, using the tech sheet that is on the unit, you may need a technician to test the parts. Sorry we could not help you more on this, but with the wiring diagram we could. Thank you.
