With the capable guidance of this incredible forum, I recently found a damaged (fried in several places) motor control board in my Maytag MAH4000 washer. (It's interesting that the main control board wasn't damaged, and the washer is once again running happily with a new wax motor.) I replaced the motor control board and motor with the new series, and everything seems to be working.

The old motor control board was damaged, as stated, so I couldn't test the motor in the conventional way to see if it was also damaged. I believe the motor (P/N 6 2702230) may still be good however, because I have continuity with very low resistance between terminals 1 and 6, 2 and 5, and 3 and 4. No terminal is shorted to ground, and the motor turns (by hand) quietly and freely in both directions. Does anyone have any idea if this motor is still good?

I have no use for the motor, but I hate to dispose of it if it is still functional. I would rather give it to someone here on the forum if they are willing to pay for shipping. It's heavy, but "If it fits, it ships", so shipping shouldn't be too much. First, let's figure out if it's still good.
