as a diagnostic tool. I've seen it discussed a bit here, but it seems as if this "Hard Start" is actually adding a little kick to the start, because some of you have said that it is only buying time, or that it will kill the motor in short order.
. So then I wonder about a test cord, as described here
and also in the maytag documentation
What is the test cord doing that the Hard Start doesn't? Is there an advantage to either?
