Hello Jeff my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.What happens if you put it in the spin cycle? Will it spin?Thanks,Barry
Yes it will.
No, and I'm at work. If it's worth it, I can swing by Home Depot and pick one up and check when I get home tonight.
Unfortunately yes. I'm in PST, so I'll have to finish this tonight.
Do you have to complete this today? I'd hate for you to have to do that. I don't mind you responding tomorrow. I'll get home around 6:00-6:30 PST.
Hi- Sorry for the late hour, took a while to get home and settled. What would you like me to do with the volt meter?
Its no problem Jeff, on your model if you look around where the water supply lines connect, do you see wire connectors there or just the hose connections? Just let me know they are either inside or outside where you can see them.Please do not try to remove the back if you do not see them.Thanks,Barry
No wire connectors on the outside.
Ok, case is off. sorry, my model didn't match the video's, and so I had to do additional research to figure out how to remove the case.
Ok, sorry for the delay. I did not see any change in the volt meter. I tried both sides.
The connectors to the water: 1 is clear plastic with two wires, Yellow with a red stripe and blue with a black stripe. The other is red plastic with 3 wires, 2 blue with black stripes (and one of those connects to the other side) and 1 brown with red stripe. Just to clarify, I used the volt meter by touching the two prongs to the medal tongues that the plastic pieces snapped onto when attached.
Ok. I'll send over a couple of pics to you as well
Good morning! I apologize, I was so worn out last night, I knew I was not going to be much help. There is a picture below of a connector going into the control panel and connected to the white case, does your machine have that connector?Thanks,BarryCLICK IMAGE.
Sorry Barry- not sure if it's because I'm at work, but this won't seem to let me upload pictures. Says my server won't allow it. I have a connecter with a white case, with a brown (with purple stripe) and a grey (with black stripe). Also another connecter with two wires, one that is all pink, and one that is half white, half red.
Did you get my last note on the different types of wires?
How would I jump out the lid switch? There's no way for me to check the water valve without having the washer cabinet removed.
OK, I re-checked the voltage on the water fill valves with the lid switch attached. Still no voltage. Just to clarify, I inserted the prongs from the volt meter into the miniature holes on the prongs that stuck out from the water connection after I removed the wires connected to them.
On the water- I know water is flowing to them, but I have not removed the hoses. My wife had been doing laundry earlier in the day. I guess it's possible that it suddenly clogged, but it looks like the true concern would be the voltage. Where would I purchase a new timer/control?
Got full voltage. What valve should I get? Any specs that would help me identify the proper one for my machine?
