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.
