The motor led blinks once then long pause. The instruction sheet tells me to replace the motor [brake]. What is the motor brake. Thanks, Jim
Answer Hello Jim,
The motor brake is an electrical circuit that actually uses the motor as a brake. If the tub takes longer than 25 seconds to stop, the inverter will initiate a brake resistor error code. The brake resistor is permanently molded into the underside of the inverter cover. If the brake requires replacement, this means to replace the motor assembly WH20X10057.
Where is the "fuse link" located?
Answer Hello Ray. The fuse link WH49X10055 is located in the wiring harness going down to the motor. Hope this helps.
My washer will not spin or agitate..after posting several questions and receiving several helpful tricks to diagnose a problem...I am still perplexed as to what the problem can be ? No flashing led fault light,not the in line fuse link,not the lid switch, power is going to the motor. Help please !
Answer Hi Joe. There is a fuse in- line to the motor strapped up at the top in the harness. This feeds the motor power. There will be no blinking of the motor to allow status. This blows when the motor is defective. They have to be replaced together. The motor/ inverter is part # WH20X10058. The fuse kit is part # WH49X10055. Thank you.
