(washer wires) (Replacement motor)
Green ---timer capacitor-------------- ??
White --------------------------------------- White
Black --------------------------------------- Black
The replacement motor only has 5 wires washer has 6. Where does Blue and Red goes? Where does Green (capasitor wire) go?

Normally that is a timer motor or motor gear and needs a new timer. Easy replacement, just unplug the washer, take the back off and replace one wire at a time from the old to the new. Then remove the old one and mount the new one. I had to replace mine a while back.
there is a motor inside the timer that turns the knob. the problem must be the replacement timer. was it a brand new timer from maytag or a 2nd hand? also double check your timer is connected correctly.
Open the control console. Use a voltmeter to test the timer motor. Set the machine to wash. Place the meter leads on the 2 timer motor wires. If you read 120 volts and the timer does not advance,the timer motor is bad. The complete timer will need replacing.
all of the white wires connect together and to the white house wiring ... the black of the house wiring goes to the AC input of the module (may be a black wire ) .. the blue wire from the lights goes to the light output of the module (as you already know) ...
now the motor actually has only two wires .. one white that should already be hooked up with all the other white wires .. the other goes to a block that contains the speed controlling capacitors .. and that has the 4 wires (you metioned cominng from the motor) .. the capacitors are no longer needed since the speed control inside the module takes over .. so you can eliminate the capacitor block (thats normally connected to the speed control switch that you wont need either)... that will leave you with just one wire from the motor that has to be connected to the modules motor wire output ... that should do it ... set the code on the module and remote the same (in battery compartment of remote) (good idea to make sure your neighbor isnt using the same code ..
connect the green wire (or bare wire) to the metal of the fan ..usually a green screw or a bare wire .. thats the safety ground ..
It could be a timer, motor or wiring problem. You would need to check for 110 volts at the timer or motor when in the higher spin mode. If you are getting 110v you have a bad motor. No or low volts you have a bad timer. The motor is either a 2 or 3 speed motor and you would have to determine which winding to check for the 110v. The schematic is usually glued to the inside rear cabinet. Please rate this post.
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.
Neil, I need to know if the motor came with a wiring diagram when it was purchased or did it just come by itself. You may have to learn how to read the wiring diagram that is stored inside the control panel.
