Hi,

In simple terms, a capacitor is an electrical/electronic component that stores electrical energy almost like a battery but shorter time but higher voltage.

In a washing machine, the most common function is to provide the initial kick (start) for the motor to turn.

Capacitors are also used in the control module/board.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Bosch wfr2460 washer not working after replacing motor with new motor- will not spin at all


Have you checked to see if it is wired correctly? Next, is there a run capasitor that goes to the moter, ir is it wired directly to the moter?
If it has a capasitor, you might need to change that. Any time you replace a motor, you always replace the capasitor with it. Let me know what you find out and we can move forward from there.

    Replacing a coupling, motor and isolation (3 piece part) on a kenmore washing machine


    you have to remove the case off the unit , remove the pump retaining clips, the motor, and IF THE MOTOR HAS A CAPASITOR ON THE RIGHT SIDE WITH 2 RED WIRES CONNECTED TO IT USE AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER TO SHORT OUT THE 2 THERMINALS ON THE CAPASITOR TO DISCHARGE IT IF YOU DONT SHORT OUT THE CAPASITOR IT COULD IN SOME CASES BE A DEADLY SHOCK, REMOVE THE WIRING CONNECTOR FROM THE MOTOR remove the motor retaining clips and the coupling is right in frount of where you removed the motor just be safe at all costs
