Thank you for letting me know it is in fact the inverter. Two hundred bucks is what they want. Oy. I had a Maytag circa 1950, that I paid $250 for a guy to rebuild the transmission and the thing ran flawlessly for another 15 years.
Have you any advice on getting the old inverter out and the new one in? It's fairly near the front, certainly easier to get to than the motor winding lugs. It looks like about 4 Phillips screws and 3 plugs. Are there any tricks I should know about before I break something?
No special tricks - fairly easy to get to and it won't hurt if you break the OLD one taking it out, but probably the easiest paart on this washer to replace.
Thanks. I had another look at it with better light. I see two screws in front, looks like the cable to the motor is part of the inverter, or there's a connector that's not really visible with everything in place. I'll wait until the new inverter arrives before removing the old one.
Thanks for your help. Guess you get paid now.
