I just purchased the motor for this washer. When I bolted up the motor, I noticed there is not a hole to attach the ground wire.
What should I do?
I called to have the company replace the motor with another. On the motor, there is a little picture for the ground wire,just as on my old motor but, no hole.
What should I hook the ground to?
Answer Hello Barb. Look and see if the ground wire is already going to the ground at another location, completing the circuit. If so, you should be fine with the piggy tailed connector not hooked to the motor 131276200. If not, you will need to attach the wire to the frame of the unit. You can splice the wire and make it longer if needed to reach ground. The motor is already internaly grounded.
Machine won't tumble or spin. Pump runs fine.1) How can I test the Door lock switch to make sure it's working? I have an Ohm/Voltage meter. 2) How can I test the motor with meter? I tried the wiring diagram and get no continuity for the 5&6 positions on the motor connector which says its for the Armature and should read less than 5 ohms.
Answer Hi Mike. If the motor windings do not ohm out at the 5 and 6 positions like your wiring diagram shows, then the new motor is part # 131276200. Remember it can be about 10 % leeway. It sounds like your door lock assembly part # 131763202 is not working correctly to allow proper operation. Shut off your circuit breaker before you touch anything. Also make sure your fill hoses and water valve screens are not clogged, as the water valve part # is .
