My Repair & Advice
Its alive!! After a recent power surge, our washer would not spin or agitate. I tried replacing the timer but the motor still would not spin or agitate. I was really hoping the motor was not fried.
I replaced the fuse and its working like a champion again! I un-installed the new timer, put the original timer back in, and it still works great, so I even get to return the new timer and save a little money. Thanks for the generous return policy!
The fuse was a little tricky to find (you have to remove a fair amount of electrical tape to get to it), but once removed it was an easy fix of snipping the old fuse out, stripping the wire, and installing new fuse by splicing it in with wire nuts. The wire nuts included with the kit seemed very cheap so I used some other wire nuts that a little beefier and they worked great.
