Question and Answers

Q:

I am trying to check my motor. The schematic says that the winding should read 3 x 16ohms. Is there a range that this should be in or should it be 16 wtw6600sw3

A:

Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet before making the Ohm resistance measurements.

The Ohm resistance of the motor windings are as followed. 
 
Disconnect connector P5 and P 10 connectors from the control board.

On P5 connector, measure the Ohm resistances across pins 1 and 2 which should measure 31 Ohms plus or minus 5 Ohms.

On P5 connector, measure the Ohm resistance across pins 1 and 3 which should measure 31 Ohms plus or minus 5 Ohms.

On P10 connector, measure the Ohm resistance across pins 5 and 6 which should measure 1.5 K Ohms plus or minus 100 Ohms.

On P10 connector, measure the Ohm resistance across pins 4 and 6 which should measure 1.5 K Ohms plus or minus 100 Ohms.

On P10 connector, measure the Ohm resistance across pins 3 and 6 which should measure 1.5K Ohms plus or minuse 100 Ohms.

On P10 connector, measure the Ohm resistance across pins 1 and 7 which should measure 600 to 21.2K Ohms.

If the Ohm measurements are Ok, the stator is Ok and the problem is likely the machine/motor control board.

The washer is a Whirlpool Cabrio model # WTW6600SW3. I found a previous post on this site from a customer that showed there was a service pointer on this particular model in 2008 and that there was a known problem with the tub ring. I found the tub ring on Amazon for 30 dollars, but now I need to know how to replace it. I contacted Whirlpool and they said they were aware of the problem and they fixed it in future models and they offered to HELP me out of three hundred and fifty dollars. I purchased the washer in March of 2008 and the service pointer with the resolution of replacing the tub ring was put out in June 2008. This upsets me because that means they knew about it being a potential problem within months of me purchasing it. They should have contacted me at that time since I registered the appliance and offered to replace it free of charge while still within the manufacturers warranty.

A:

I understand your concern about the revision in that tub ring. That revision occurred at serial number CW2270900. If your serial number is lower than that, then replacing that tub ring with the revised version may prevent water from leaking off of that tub ring.

Although I cannot resolve that Whirlpool customer service issue, I have provided an illustrated procedure for replacing that tub ring in the image below. Unplug the washer before lifting that top panel of the washer. Also, be sure that you tape the lid closed before lifting the top panel to access that tub ring.

This information should help you replace that tub ring. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

I recommend that you contact Whirlpool again regarding that tub ring revision if your serial number is prior to the one provided abov
