My motor open to thermal protection. The new motor rate to 7.4 amps. The new motor installed the amps is 7,4 to 8,5. The firt test with water only in cuve. The transmission is to hard for motor?. Where is the normal amps for motor. thanks?
Answer Claude, Sounds like your washer is running fine. Here are the amperages you need to look for : agitation at regular speed with full tub of water 6.0 to 7.0 amps. Spin, regular with water in tub 6.5 to 7.5 amps. Spin regular speed water out of tub, full spin speed 6.0 to 7.0 amps. This is the ratings under ideal situation 9 120 VAC) under a load, If your voltage is lower than that, your amperage will increase. Thanks
Washer does not agitate, burning rubber smell. Does spin to evacuate water from tub. Do I have to replace the Trans Dee?
Answer Ron, Most likely, yes. You you conduct the manual test, first. Slide the washer out, raise and block up the front of the washer, remove the drive belts. Grasp the drive pulley on the transmission and turn it in a counterclockwise direction, The Tub should start to spin in 1/2 to 3/4 of a revolution of the pulley. Turn the pulley in a clockwise direction, and the pulley should be relatively easy to turn and your assistant, should see the agitator oscilate. If the the pulley is hard to turn or cannot be turned, That would indicate a gear case issue or top agitator shaft bearing issue. Good Luck and Thanks
My washing machine doesn't agitate.I've changed the belts,turned the pulley in one dirction and the tub spinned,turned the pulley in the opposite direction and the agitator turned.Is there anything else I can try? Thanks
Answer Bill, Does the motor run in the agitate mode ? does the motor move back and forth on the motor carriage assembly with the belts off ? Based on your post, everything is mechanically, fine in the transmission. I've never seen a Maytag agitator strip out on the agitator shaft, but you may want to check there. Good Luck and Thanks
