Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I know to look for the cable harness, but how do I open the machine up to find the cable?
You want to remove six screws left right and center on the back for the top panel and for the kick panel below the door. There is a box on the left bottom for motor control unit and another on top. First make sure all connections top and bottom are fully into there slots. We need to unplug the machine and do some measurements for the motor and then to check for voltage. There is a plug for power on the motor we need to unplug. You will see there is five wires, three go to the motor and two loop around to a sensor plug on front of the motor. The top three that go to the motor is our concern.The wires on a schematic are labeled U, V and W meaning nothing on color as they reference points on the mcu where they plug into. Ok using the three that go to the motor from where the harness unplugs from the motor we will label them 1, 2 and 3. Using an ohm meter measure from 1 to 2, 1 to 3 and 2 to 3. Ok so far? Good I hope you found ohms around 6 or 7 on each,if not replace the motor, problem solved. If this is ok we will plug in our wires and the machine. start a cycle and measure the pink wires that plug in to the mcu for 120 volts ac. If this passes then there is two solutions. One is the wire harness and two is the mcu which is around 260 bucks.
