Question about Washing Machines
Pav2000aww maytag washer. a motor burned out and I purchased a new one but this one is also smoking and getting hot even when there is no belt connected to it.
I was thinking the motor switch is not wired properly but the same thing seems to have happened to the first motor.
There is a contact switch in the washer down by the motor that determines which motor function that is needed gets energized. If one of these contact weld them selve closed then the motor can potentially operate on two different functions and burn up. Look to see if this is the case and if not contact me and theres other things to check.
