Question about Washing Machines
I replaced the timer about a year ago and today replaced a burned out lid switch. The agitator wont spin in either the spin cycle or wash mode and i nticed that the motor was getting hot. Just want to know what kind of troubleshooting I can do to verify that my motor is burnt out. When I had the cover out I also observed that the motor is not spinning.
* Test the lid switch
* Inspect the motor coupler
* Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
* Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
* Test the motor
* Inspect the pulley
* Test the transmission
* Inspect the agitator
* Inspect the pump coupling
* Test the water level switch
