Question and Answers

Q:

is my washer motor bad?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the washer. It sounds like you have ruled out anything mechanical. I suspect you have an electrical problem. I would not feel comfortable telling you to replace the motor without any electrical checks. The reason is the problem could be a defective timer, broken wire, or even a loose connection. I recommend having a service technician diagnose the washer. If you think you would feel comfort able checking live voltage with a meter I will be happy to assist you. You can pick up a simple analog meter from Sears for about $20.00.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

First, you will need to remove the washer cabinet. The second image below shows how to remove the cabinet. Once the cabinet is removed, turn the timer to a heavy-duty wash cycle. Do not turn the washer on at this time. Now turn the meter to check ac voltage. Then plug the leads onto the red and yellow wires going to the motor. Once you have the leads in place pull the timer knob out. You should have a reading of about 110 volts. If you have the reading, turn the washer off and move the leads to the white and blue wires. Once you have them in place turn the washer back on. Again, you should have the same reading. If you have these readings and providing the motor is not jammed the motor is defective. To be sure it is not jammed, remove the motor but leave the wires connected. Then turn the washer on. If the motor does the same thing it is time to replace the motor. If the motor runs, you should double check the pump and transmission. I hope this is helpful. Please feel free to reply below with the details of the checks.
