I have a Ge washer Model Number WVSR1060B3ww. The washer works fine ecept the spin cycle. During the spin Cycle the motor does nothing at all. I assume that the motor is bad.....


With that assumption i took a motor out of a model Whdsr315daww and put it in the for the broken model. I matched wires up color for color, but no luck. The motor just hums....

I am attaching the schematics for both washer models.... Please help me out.

Cant attach files because it says file to big... I can email them i guess/>

Thanks
Casey

Response to Regus_patoff
1.No Motor noise on the original motor during spin cycle.
2. With the new motor I get a hum during agitate and nothing during spin.

I think the first motor was one speed and the second is two speed but im not sure.
Thanks

Not to be rude..... I was hoping for a little more insight than two words to solve the problem.

Why do you think it is the timer?

Is there a way to test the timer?

For example when the timer gets to spin cycle can i test the lead coming out of the timer for some resistance or voltage?

Is the second motor that I hooked up wired correctly?

1) if the Washer Agitates OK, the Motor is good
2) it's either a bad Motor or bad Timer (see above)
3) wiring looks OK, but putting a (2) speed Motor into a (1) speed Washer, the Motor willl start-jerk-start, etc ..

if it Agitates OK but no Motor noise in Spin ,
bad Timer
