I replaced the lid switch, the fuse, and the timer control. Still does not run? Help
ANSWER Hi James. Lift and support the unit. Remove the belt and then see if the washer runs. If not- did you mark the old lid switch assy mount to the top before removing it ? It is a good practice to use a black felt marker and mark the mounts side and bottom so when replacing the new lid switch, it is placed exactly where the original one is bolted with the 5/16" screws. This aligns the lid switch and the lid lever engagement properly. Carefully lift the lid. At approx. 1" you should hear a click of the lid switch/ lever engagement. Then check at the motor to see if you have 120 vac on the motor blk wire terminal wire to ground. Disconnect the #7 gry wire and the #16 y/blk. wire from the pressure switch and temporarily connect therm together. Now return power and see if the motor runs in spin. Use a same size hose and blow back into the pressure sw. part # 207364 (should be available June 26-July 3) and see if the diaphragm closes and allows the motor to run now. If it runs only when the leads are together then the pressure switch internal contacts are bad. If not then make sure the black wire on the motor terminal has 120 vac to ground , if not then check the wires from the timer and the connections. The pressure switch closes the neutral to the motor circuit when the tub is full. If so then the motor sw. part # 205131 or the motor part # 12002351 needs replaced. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Thank You.
