My washer stopped. (Frididaire Affinity) I trouble shooted until I determined that it is the door lock mechanism. What I cannot figure out is if it is the door lock, possibly the wax motor or the control panel not sending power to the door lock mechanism.


I have bipassed the switch so the washer thinks the door is closed and locked so I can run it for now, hopefully the door doesn't pop open.

The reason I am confused is because I cannot detect any voltage to the wax motor anytime during the cycle. Before I order a part I want to make sure it's what is bad.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

where are you trying to measure that voltage ?
should be between the Pink and the Red / Black wires

sorry it took so long to get back to you. Yes I am checking voltage at the Pink and the Red / Black wires. I have the door lock assembly hanging out and I shorted out the two lines so the washer thinks the door is properly closed and locked. I haven't kept a meter on it for the entire cycle. Even if I remove 90% of the water a lot still splashes out. but I have checked it at different times in the cycle and have tested it in diagnostic mode with the door lock setting.
