Hi, My washer starts, fills up, then runs for about 15min then stops for about 20 min then starts again by its self do you think it might be the motor heating up then cools down.
Answer Ed, Yes, it could be a motor that is overheating, but you would normally have some abnormal noises, or a burn odor, were that the case. You may want to start by checking the drive belt 22003483 for excess wear. Then check that the lid hinges 22002751 and bushings 22002753 fit tight and there is little or no side to side movement in the lid. Then check or replace the lid switch 22003804. Those are more likely the issue based on the post information.
I have a Maytag motor part number 02278-4. It has 5 wires:red, white, yellow, green and blue. I'm using it for a different application and I only need it to rotate the pulley. Which wires do I need to hook up?
Thanks much, Ed
Answer Hello Ed,
The part number you listed is not a valid part number. If you got the number off of the motor, it is probably a vendor number and cannot be looked up. If you could list the model number of the machine the motor was removed from, we could pull the wiring diagram and tell you which connections are for the run winding, and which ones are for the start winding.
