Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
do you have a volt meter you can test power to the pump with ?
The machine fills and agitates. When it's done agitating, it just stops and sits there nice and quiet.
I'm running out to the garage because I think I may have a volt meter in there somewhere. If not, will one of those light up circuit checkers work? I pretty sure I have one of those.
I've got one. It indicates that the pump is getting power.
The machine is set to spin, the power is there, and nothing happens.
The pump is brand new from the Servall parts store just down the road.
I don't know if it's 120 volts. All I had was the light up circuit checker, which indicates whether power is present, but it doesn't provide a measurement of the power.
I'm certain that nothing is clogging the pump. When I lower the discharge tube below the level of the tub, the machine is draining by gravity without any problem. That indicates there's nothing clogging any of the lines or the pump, right?
I can get one but not right now. I'll check the pump again for obstructions later.
Let's assume I'm not getting 120 volts. What would cause that? Is it possible there's something wrong up in the control panel?
