My Whirlpool washer can still agitate, but does not drain. I have checked that the lid switch is OK and the pump is rotating smoothly with no blockage. I just took out the motor and found it is FSP part#8528157, the same as shown in your picture. The resistance measurement readings between 6 wires of my motor are as follows: Black (BK) to Yellow (Y) wires: 8 omh Black (BK) to all other 5 wires: open Purple (V) to White-Black (W-BK) wires: 2.5 omh Purple (V) to Blue (BU) wires: 3 omh Purple (V) to Yellow (Y) wires: open Purple (V) to White (W) wires: 2.5 omh White-Black (W-BK) to Blue (BU) wires: 1.5 omh White-Black (W-BK) to Yellow (Y) wires: open White-Black (W-BK) to White (W) wires: 0 omh Blue (BU) to Yellow (Y) wires: open Blue (BU) to White (W) wires: 1.5 omh Yellow (Y) to White (W) wires: open I am wondering if my motor is bad for driving the pump to drain? Thanks a lot! Xi


ANSWER Hello Xi. If the lid switch is good, you need to check the strike that comes down and presses the lid switch. If it is broken, the unit will not spin or drain.
