How do you test the washer motor capacitor? Can it be tested with a meter or something?
Answer Hello David,
It can be tested with a capacitance meter CT1 easiest. It can be tested with a resistance meter, but this will tell you if the capacitor is shorted or open. It will not tell you the capacitive value if the component has drifted out of tolerance. You put the meter across the terminals and watch the display for counting up to infinity. This will occur quickly and disappear very quickly. Now reverse the leads on the terminals, (reverse the polarity). The same thing should happen, but a bit more pronounced. It will once again rise very quickly and go to an infinite reading. This tells you that the capacitor isn't shorted or open internally.
A water hose got a big whole and the water was spilling to the floor I don't know for how long. Now my washer doesn't fill any water. I can't even hear the motor going.
Answer Moroni, Can you hear the lid switch "click" when you open and close the loading lid ? You may have a damaged lid switch assembly 8318084 ? If you had water spraying inside the cabinet or control console, theres no telling what may have gotten damaged, or shorted out. You'll need to raise the control console and remove the cabinet and visually inspect all the wires and components for damage. Which hose had the hole in it, that may give you a better idea of where to start. We'll send you some access information, that may help you out.
The washer washes but will not empty what can I try?
Answer Hello Roger. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the lid switch 3949247 may be bad and will need to be replaced in the unit. If it is broke, it will cause the issues you are having. Hope this helps.
