1. Motor continuity test. Unplug washer. Unplug motor.
Look at the pins as pictured. The plug will look like the diagram above. Read continuity across all the pins as listed below.
1 to 5 2 to 3 2 to 4 3 to 2 3 to 4 4 to 2 4 to 3 5 to 1
When reading continuity you must disconnect wires from the component you are checking. If you have continuity between all these points on motor, go to next test. If no continuity on any pins read, retest several times then replace motor.
Lid switch test: Look in wash basket and remove the rubber clothes guard from the spout that brings filter flow water to filter pan. With a putty knife, push in on two clips that hold top to cabinet. You will find them about 6 in. in on either side. Lift top. Check lid switch actuater arm and read continuity across lid switch with it actuated. No continuity, replace the switch assembly.
Pressure switch test: There are three wires on the pressure switch . Identify where they go and remove from switch. With tub empty, you should read continuity from #7 to #15. With tub full of water, you should read continuity from #7 to #16. If you do not read continuity with these circumstances, then replace the pressure switch. How a common WLC works.
