yes-it had a relay on it as I think the one in your pic has that I did not have wires for. I only had 2 wires so they went to the body of the lid lock and not that relay. I taped off the two prongs on the relay.
okay. So you only have two wires going to the old switch is that correct?
The guy at the store did not sound real sure about the switch and said this is what it called for. I never had 4 wires and this machine was purchased new by us. I agree, there should have been instructions on what to do with the two terminals on the relay. I hope to get to it at some point but not sure when. As far as my original question-Do you know about the drain hose feeling plugged up but then I stuck a metal rod in it and it almost seemed to open a flap door or something or do you truly think it is clogged. I have never seem a flapper door in a drain hose.
Tried what we talked about.I am able to blow air through the drain line now-never got a big clog out but seemed to open up enough for water flow to get through. Started to drain and then quit and smelled a burning smell so again thought there was another blockage-so removed the drain line from the tub to the pump-no blockages in that. Are there any litlle water lines etc in the back of the machine that could be plugged. Still seems as though there is a blockage somewhere but at my wits end at this point. Left my original lid lock in. I did hear the timer going through the cycles so I am assuming the timer is working.
PS Also , I don't think its the belt as the machine was not turning at the time so the pulleys were not moving. The belt is a bit loose though but nonetheless, its not engaging.
Again, is it normal for the start capacitor to hum or would that mean it might be the problem- in other words IT IS NOT SUPPOSE TO HUM or would it do this if it was trying to start a motor that was bad?
what would the burning smell be? Also, would the motors run ( the pump motor and tub motor) if there was a clogged drain hose? I am assuming the tub motor would not kick in until it drains down to a certain point. Not sure about the pump motor. It seems to drain for a second after I unclogged the drain hose then shut down quickly. I am now learning there is a flap on the outlet side of the pump motor- or should be and mine has none and that may explain the strange clog in the drainline where nothing came out but I was able to clear it temporarily. Your thoughts??
We are talking a washer here and the unit is sealed.
sorry, I meant that post for another customer. real busy here. if you take the hose off you can get your finger in the hole and see if it turns free.
read my last post-did it. The elastic band thing happened a few times but other than that it is free and clear. i will try and undo the hose I think has the rubber valve stuck in it and try and turn the unit on. Will it work normal with no water in it?
I ended up calling a repair man because non of the above worked and it was the timer. I did pay you thirty dollars as well. Can we be reimbursed some of this fee? Thanks
