My washer doesn't do the spin cycle and starts smelling like something is burning. Should I change the timer?
Answer Hello Antonia. You need to check and see if the belt is burning. If so, the bearings W10219156 may be locked up in the unit and causing the unit to smoke the belt.
Is there a way to check the mode shifter to see if it is working properly?
Answer Hello Ed. You can ohm out the shifter. You will want to check the resistance value of the mode shifter and not continuity. The resistance should be 98 Ohms at room temperature of 77 degrees. You will also want to test the motor for voltages. The voltage readings should be as follows: Note: All electrical testing is done at harness plugs. Voltage readings: C2 Pin 1 = Gnd C2 Pin 3 = N C2 Pin 5 to Pin 3 = 120 VAC C2 Pin 6 to Pin 3 = 120 VAC with lid switch closed C7 Pin 1 to Pin 2 = 135 VDC** C7 Pin 1 to Pin 2 = 30 VDC** C4 Pin 5 to Pin 1 = 0 VDC* C4 Pin 5 to Pin 2 = 0 VDC* C4 Pin 5 to Pin 3 = 12 VDC* C4 Pin 5 to Pin 4 = 12 VDC* * Place washer in fi eld service mode spin test (Knob Position 9). If 12 VDC is present at specifi ed pins, main control is OK. If motor runs in spin test, inverter, motor and wiring harness are OK. ** 135 VDC is present for approximately 15 seconds at the beginning of the agitate program. 30 VDC is present during the remainder of the agitate cycle. Caution: If the mode shifter coil is open, C7 Pin 1 to Pin 2 can measure as high as 300 VDC.
