Have a two spin cycle whirpool washing machine commercial size. Purchased 2003. Fills washes and then stops. Will not spin or drain. Took off pump and discovered metal wire inside. Removed and replaced. Still does not work. Have ordered a new pump 3363892. Is this the only thing I need to look at to fix for this problem?

I am testing my 2 speed whirlpool washer motor and the reading that I am getting from the start up winding is 0 ohms but the test states I should have 4-10 ohms. I realize that the instructions are pretty simple but just wanted to check and see if my motor was bad since it had 0 resistance.

I have a 16 yr. old Kenmore washer (model# 110.27822790). Recently, my washer died while I was doing a large load of towels. I heard a "pop" and the circuit breaker in the garage tripped. Now, my washer will not agitate, spin, or drain. I removed the wet towels and manually drained the tub. The washer will only fill now and when it is on any other portion of the cycle, it only hums and usually produces a burning smell. Sometimes after ~20 seconds, I hear a "click" and then the humming stops. Sometimes, the humming does not cut off until I pull out the power cord or pull the timer out. Here is what I have checked so far. The coupling between the motor and gearcase looks OK and is intact. I removed the motor and I can turn both shafts of the motor by hand without issue. I detached the pump and I can turn this hand by also - I don't see any impeller damage or anything stuck in the pump. I can also turn the half of the motor coupling that is still attached to the gearcase by hand. When I turn this half of the motor coupling, I can make the agitator and tub move depending on the direction I turn the coupling. Given this, I don't think anything is mechanically jammed between the gearcase, motor, and pump. I have a co-worker who does part-time appliance repair work. He thought the problem could be the start-up capacitor or the motor itself. I removed the capacitor and had my co-worker check it. He said it was fine. My co-worker lent me a spare motor to try. I installed this spare motor but still had the exact same problems. I also checked the resistance on various windings for my motor and the spare I tried. All the resistance readings appear to be in spec and the readings were comparable between the 2 motors. I found the resistance spec.s at the following site: http://www.repairave.com/washerrepair_wpl_motor.asp. Lastly, I think the lid switch works fine. If I put the washer on spin and leave the lid open, the machine will not hum. However if I lower the lid, the washer will start humming but nothing else will happen. I would appreciate any insight you could give me to help troubleshoot this problem. I am not impressed with the quality of newer appliances so I would like to get my current washer running again since it is tried and true. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. Ryan

The wash machine will fill up and then it just does nothing. It makes a buzzing sound and smells like the motor is getting warm.

Washer frequently stops after wash or rinse cycle. Does not empty or spin. Agitator cannot be moved manually. Strong burning smell. I have replaced clutch, timer, transmission. Pump is clear. Motor hums and is warm to touch. Capacitor is not hot. After above repairs were made washer ran fine for a few washes and then recurred.

I have taken motor off and a white wire has burned into. Can I replace wire only or do I have to replace whole motor?

My washer will fill up but it isnt stopping. It'll fill until it overflows. Also, it won't agitate or spin or drain the water out. It just hums. When I set the cycle to spin and give the coupler a little push, it takes right off and acts normal. What could this be from?

Washer fills with water but will not agitate, spin or drain. It just buzzes regardless of whether or not the lid is shut or open. The lid switch tests out ok and the resistance in the motor and motor switch tests out seemingly fine. Also, tested the timer it has a resistance of ~0 ohms but the voltage is at about 100v. Not sure if this is the culprit?

Motor bad or transmission? The washer will load water just fine. When it gets to agitate cycle all I hear is a hum coming from control panel area. If I move it to drain/spin cycle with lid open no hum from control panel. But when I close the lid get same hum sound from control panel and no water drain or spin. So I assume lid switch is working Sounds like motor but not sure how to test it?
