Question about Washing Machines
It's probably the motor. Most times, the motor has separate windings for slow and fast speed. Before spending $120. 00 on a motor, I'd get a $5.00 voltmeter to confirm this. You can use the tech sheet to find which terminals on the motor are the fast speed windings, and check the resistance. Be sure to unplug the motor plug first. It should read about 8 to 14 ohms.
If the motor is good, the timer is the next likely candidate. Withoput knowing which machine you have, this is the best I can do.
