PREVIUOUS TECH REPLACED SHIFTER AND LID LOCK. I CHECK FOR BINDING IN THE DRIVE SYSTEM, FOUND NO  PROBLEM, MOTOR HUMS BUT NO START, CHECK CAPACITOR IN WITHIN RANGE 53 Microfarads, splusch fine, i just found a little bit of oil in the splusch, I' getting an F7/E1  i' m thinking of bad transmission, i would check the motor winding and try to perform Test#3a 3b, but customer is considering replace the machine after less then 2 years, but a shame for this new products, looks like a Calypso rerun, any advice. Thanks

  Broken wires at wire tie-down points are common especially between motor and capacitor and the coil of wire.

It can be the ring inside the gearcase that the actuator uses to read basket movement. The ring breaks free of it's internal mount and does not turn with the basket.
