I have a Kenmore washer, model 41729042992, that would not start, it just hummed. I replaced the timer and I'm not sure if I connected the correct wires to the #1 and 1a terminal. The type is 514 154 A 419. I may have reversed them. I ran it through a wash cycle and it seems to work normally. How can I tell?

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
Anytime an appliance knocks a breaker down, the motor is the obvious culpret.
The first thing to do is remove the motor and take it to an appliance parts house for testing.
If the coupling broke, it is just sometimes just happenstance. In other cases it could be a transmission starting to lock up, which would overtax the motor, and eventually cause it to fail.
Lastley, most models are 2 or three speed. If the timer screws up and tries to run the motor on high and medium or low at the same time it will fry the motor.
Check three things: 1: 120V to the motor 2: Correct resistances of motor windings 3: Pull off the pump and make sure nothing is locking it, and subsequently, the motor shaft. If all those things check out, replace the timer, it may be making intermittent contact. Hope that helps.
