Is there any way to verify if I have a bad motor (this one) for my MAH9700AWW other than replace? Can I hotwire it and if so what voltages? Everything else seems to work I just get no spin and no error codes. The tub spins fine. I hate to replace the motor only to find the control board was not sending the right power or something like that. TIA

Bigmontana for Model Number MAH9700AWW

ANSWER BigMontana, You'll need a multimeter to check resistances at the CN9 and CN8 connectors at the main control board. Unplug the CN9 connector from the control board and check: pin1 to pin2, pin1 to pin 3, and pin2 to pin3 You should have the same resistance reading on all 3 tests(approx. 3-5 ohms) disconnect the CN8 connector from the control board and check : Orange to all wires in the connector should have infinite resistance. Blue to Pink should have 4.7 ohms , Red to Pink 4.7 ohms , Red to Blue 9.6 ohms. If all your resistance readings are in range, your motor and wiring is OK, and you'll need to replace the main control board. Good Luck and Thanks
