Question and Answers

Q:

Is my timer bad if my washer motor only will operate on delicate?

A:

Your washer has a 2 speed motor. The motor could have an open high speed motor winding or it could have a failed timer preventing the motor from running on high speed. The high speed motor winding will need to be checked using an ohm meter. You will unplug the power cord from the power source. Disconnect the motor and test for continuity across terminal 7 and 4. Terminal 7 had the blue wire attached and terminal 4 had the white wire attached. The resistance should measure between 1-2 ohms if the motor is OK. If the high speed winding tests OK, the timer is likely the failure.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.
