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.

The shaft on the motor does make contact with part that is goes into. I understand that this is replacement part. But it is not working. Do I need to buy an different part to make it work.

Latest Questions

My Kenmore Washer #11023012102 (purchased 2003) will sometimes not spin. It tries to but the motor just makes a buzzing noise. I've replaced the clutch, coupling and the capacitor and it’s still happening. How do I tell the difference if it’s a motor, bearing or gear case that is causing me the problem?

Washer originally would not spin after wash cycle, replaced motor coupler and faulty lid switch. Now when I turn it on it just hums. I did purchase these parts from you all. Thanks, Steve

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
