1. Advance the timer knob to the drain increment.
If the drain pu'mp does not run, check safety circuit.
If the drain pump runs go to step 2.

2. Turn the water off to the washer.
Remove electrical power from the washer and remove the back panel.
Remove the motor drive belt.
Reconnect electrical power and set the timer to the start of the regular wash cycle and pull the knob out.
If the motor runs check for a poor connection in the timer line switch or door lock switch.
If motor does not run go to step 3.

3. Remove the four pin plug from the speed control unit.
Measure the voltage drop between pins 2 and 4.
If the meter reads 0v, check the motor thermal cut out.
If the meter reads 120vAC go to step 4.

4. Remove the nine pin plug to the speed control unit.
Measure the voltage drop between pin 6 of the nine pin plug and pin 4 of the four pin plug.
If the meter reads 0v, check timer contact 11 to 11a.
If the meter reads 120vAC go to step 5.

5. Measure the voltage drop between pin 3 of the nine pin plug and pin 4 of the four pin plug.
(Leave meter connected for more than 4 seconds)
If the meter reads 0v, check timer contact 24 to 24b.
If the meter reads 120vAC go to step 6.

6. Remove electrical power from the washer.
With an ohmmeter check the resistance between pins 1 & 3 of the four pin plug.
If the meter reads about 6 ohms replace the speed control board.
