In Topic: My ancient Kenmore Direct drive washer cuts off mid-cycle

Thanks reg - I thought it was. I recognize the capacitor.



#1 if it's a hum the check the cap as advised before, it will bw either the back wall of the machine, near the water valve, or mounted to the motor.

 

#2 opening it up isn't gonna hurt anything, and you've gotta do it to check the cap anyway.

I meant continuing to use the machine, not opening up the cabinet. Sorry about the confusion.

Is there a  link that shows how to check the capacitor? Is it a standard ohm check or something else?



Wow! Answering my question before i even ask it! You must be psychic!

HOlding down the switch - I know it's a bit dangerous, but danger is my life! (hehe)

 

I've done a lot of work on this machine, so I know it's no problem, just a pain since it's in a corner of the kitchen. Next time It happens, I'll open it up and check it out.

Comstock_Services - Both. It depends on the cycle that the timer is set on.

 

 

suampman - How do I check the capacitor? is it on the motor or the instrument panel?

RegUS_PatOff  - There's a hum, but I'm not sure whether it is the timer or the motor. The problem is intermittent. Seems to be okay right now. That's why I'm leaning more towards a clutch/transmission problem. 

 

certified tech group 51- that is helpful-  I haven't noticed anything on the inside of the cabinet, but I also wasn't looking. Since it is working right now I'm reluctant to open it up to check it out. Next time it stops, I'll pull the cabinet off and check unless you think it'll do more damage.
