My washer will not spin. The door locked light comes on. I looked at the control board and found no evidence of fried resistors. Could it just be a bad wax motor?
Answer Hello Brad. If the light comes on, the motor is good. You will need to check the balance switches and the spin enable switch. If all are good, then the motor kit will need to be replaced on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The soap dispenser door does not open at any time automatically. The spring is okay. I thought it might be the wax motor. Please help. Thanks
You are on the right track with the wax motor being the issue. You can test the wax motor when the unit is calling for the detergent cup to open. Check to make sure that there is 120 vac getting to the wax motor. If there is then the wax motor is faulty and would need to be replaced and if not then the issue would be the controls/timer.
