Gwl11 washer picture of motor controller

I took apart the washer a week ago and now I am not sure how the ground wires went. I have all of the plugs in the right way but I amm not sure how the green electrical wire went. If you can get me a picture of how the controller looks look hooked up it would be a big help.

Dan, did you check the circuitry and relays to the motor, as was suggested on March 29th? If the motor can't get power it won't work. It seems, that this may be the problem, since you took the motor apart and there were no broken gears and all other electrical devices work. The other resolution was to contact R.H.Peterson Company, the manufacturer for more information, if all else failed.

Have heat, not blowing have checked fuse, replaced fan and resistor - Mechanic wonders if could be a control module, anything else? 2001 dodge caravan, 6 cyl

Hello redtruck.
I had the same problem in a newer version of your Caravan this past week.
To test it you need to ground the front blower motor relay ground. The pin for it is the one closest to the left fender. If the blower comes on your problem is similar to mine.
We found the problem in the circuit board under the fuses in the "intellegent power module. The module at the front of the panel was not the problem, it will come off with two Torx head screws.
We took it apart taking pictures as we went for reassembly.
We used a magnifying glass to inspect the circuit board and found a corroded terminal. Then soldered in a wire to jump past the bad area.

Buttons on Kenmore HE3 washer not working. Can only get delicate cycle to work and options on right hand side (water temp, spin speed, etc) not working.

I have the same problem. It started a few weeks ago. I did get it to work for a while by unplugging from the wall outlet. When you plug back in, you can choose one clcle and it will work. I repeated this 3 times and it went back to normal for 3 weeks until today. Trying to find a true permanent fix. unplugging and replugging resets something, will work temporarily

Fisher Paykel gwl11 washer leaking and squealing

Set the machine on its side and started taking it apart til the problem was obvious. Called Fisher for the parts. A big black seal is out and a bearing above the impellor that cools the motor, we ordered a pump assembly that is on the bottom side of the motor. I am still going to replace the water pump in the drain side, that is a no brainer. Will update on the repair when the parts arrive

ok You have a blown Motor controller module. There could also be another fault that caused this to blow up. eg a faulty drain pump, lid lock or Diverter valve, inlet valve. you'd need to use a ohm meter to test all these. cheers

Sounds like your gears are striped out inside the motor. I had the same problem on a car of mine. I just went to a parts store and bought the gear and took the motor apart and fixed it myself. It cost 18 dollars with tax.

Good Luck.
