Checked the 220 and it was 294 so I called the power company and they sent out a crew with a new transformer. Seems that with the underground transformers after a lighting strike instead of frying the transformer it does something inside where the voltage increases. They see it all the time. I will discuss filing a claim because i just replaced a well pump to the tune of $1800 that was only 4 years old along with the washer and dryer.

So what is the end result? Is your washer ok now or are you just getting a new one. Seems yours might work ok when you get the new transformer. What's the latest? Glad you were able to figure it out.

Don't know for sure yet. I am working 12 hour nights for a couple more days and with a 1.5 hour commute each way it doesn't leave much trouble shooting time. I don't know if any permanent damage is done but most electronics can take over voltages so if the motors still work I may be okay. I will post again when I have a day off.

Yeah, kind of figured that but still holding out hope. At anyrate be good to fix this voltage problem before proceeding to the dryer proble. Wouldn't you concur?

Oui, papa. Sumpin ain't raht w'dat vo-tage thang.
Thanks youngun, we old folks can use a little help now and again. Even though I forgot problably as much as you know, it nice to have someone around to point us in the right direction now and again. Thanks Bruta

It appears the problem was solved by the new transformer. Both the washer and dryer have done multiple loads with no issues. It is amazing how well it all works when they have the correct voltage.
I will now know to check my voltages at first sign of trouble. I guess that is what they call "experience".
