I love your videos. You make everything seem so easy. I am an appliance technician and I have never worked on an old unit like the ones in ur videos that was as clean as the ones in ur videos. Of course its going to be easy when everything is already new. You should warn people that some older machines are going to be tough to get the motor coupler off, or to get the cabinet back on the frame. just saying. not all of us have a perfect machine to work on. The machines in ur videos don't have any signs of wear what so ever. very misleading.

I am trying to replace my capacitor as my machine just buzzes/hums loudly and smells a bit like burning after it fills. It wouldn't drain so I drained it myself. The capacitor is corroded/rusty and the prongs snapped off inside the wire connectors. Can I get new wire connectors? The prongs look like they are corroded inside the connector and I can't pull them out, they just tear leaving pieces inside. I'm having trouble telling what part exactly the wire connector to the prong is. Or do I need the entire wiring harness? Also, there is a black "dust" that sort of looks like steel wool. Is this from the Clutch? Should I replace it as well? or from the brake? I really appreciate any help! Jessica

My Kenmore washer (model# 110.27822790) will not agitate, spin, or drain. The washer will only fill now and when it is on other portions of the cycle, it only hums at the motor and usually produces a burning smell. I disconnected the motor from the pump and gearcase and had the exact same problem with no load on the motor. I also had access to 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. The timer appears to cycle correctly (no humming in the off position, washer fills when it is supposed to, etc.). I checked the start-up capacitor. It is not shorted but it is weak, reading ~175 vs. a spec of 189 to 227 MFD. Is this capacitor too weak to start the motor? Thanks.

Latest Questions

After washing clothes, wouldn't drain or spin. Just makes timer buzzing noise. Check lid switch, pump, couplings and motor. Motor will spin when taken off of couplings and is plugged in. Couplings on gear will turn by hand and shaft turns in tub. What am I missing?

I have a sears/whirlpool direct drive washer approx 5yrs old. The washer reaches the rinse cycle after agitating fine and won't pump out the water. I bypassed the lid switch took cabinet off and heard the motor humming at this time and getting hot. I was able to get it to pump and spin by helping it along at the coupler. I took the pump off ( no obstructions) it spins freely, the coupler is good, I took the motor off and was able to spin the coupler attached to transmission. The motor windings test ok with an ohmmeter and the motor switch as well. All that I can think of is the capacitor. I removed it and measured voltage across it and got zero, that should have been 120v in my opinion, using an ohmmeter it reads a open circuit across the terminals. Am I looking at a bad capacitor here? Thank you in advance
