My washer stopped working an had a burn smell so i replaced the motor . I started the washer it filled w/water but would not wash when i moved the timer it would spin an drain . is it a bad new motor?
ANSWER Hi Lee. Unclasp the motor and Put it out where you can put your foot on top it so it is steady. Start it in wash and see if the agitation w/ out the motor hooked to the transmission. If it hums, look at the connections that it is tight and pushed squarely onto the motor. Then look at the top of the motor capacitor to see if it is burnt or there is a hole in the top. It is part # 8572717. Is there a broken motor coupler part # 285753A. Can you rotate the transmission gear one way and see it agitating at the top and rotate it the opposite as the inner wash basket will spin ? The timer will allow the motor to operate in one direction for agitation and spin in another direction. Check the blue wire from the timer contact #18 top contact and the white neutral or the green ground wire. Make sure that you have 120 vac output. If you do not then it is a bad timer part # W10177827. You can use the wiring diagram folded behind the timer area to follow. Thank You.
