Sorry to show my grasshopper statue so publicly.
I have attempted all the Tech steps.
1. Timer to drain, pump runs
2. belt off, timer to start of wash, knob out - motor does not run
3 And here is where my ignorance starts - check for voltage between 2 and 4 of 4 pin plug:
meter reads 0 checking the pins on the board, and the plug - not sure if flow is from the plug to the board or from the board to the plug.
if meter reads 0, check thermal cut out. I disconnected the wires from the motor. Checking the ohms on the motor between 7 and 8, 0 ohms. since this is less than 1 that seemed good.
4."Remove 9 pin, measure voltage between pin 6 of the 9 pin and pin 4 of the 4 pin. If meter reads 0, check timer contact 11 to 11a."
meter reads 0. NOT SURE WHAT TO DO HERE "CHECK TIMER CONTACT" On voltage out of timer body reads 0 volts.
Also on plug, voltage is 0.
All the above with machine plugged in, timer at start of wash cycle and knob pulled out.
The next step really has me baffled - It says to check voltage drop between pin 3 of the nine pin and pin 4 of the 4 pin plug. Um there is nothing in position 3 of the nine pin plug.
Am I using the meter correctly?
