How to check the motor on a Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW washer

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


Grand Master RegUS_PatOff tiptoes us through these tulips:

Motor Windings Check

1 . Disconnect power to the unit.

2 . Remove each pair of phase wires from the motor control and perform an ohm check of each wire leading to the motor.

Each wire pair should show 2-3 ohms resistance.

2 . There should be no continuity between any of the terminals and the frame of the motor.

3 . Check that all six motor terminals are secure and at the same height in the connector housing.

Replace motor if terminals are pressed into the motor.

4. Remount the six-position motor connector onto the motor.

Reassemble the drip shield cover onto the motor control.

5 . Reposition the motor control into the washer when finished.

Make sure the two screws and the twistlock wire ties are fastened properly to the wire harness.
