Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This top load washer has non-contact voltage to the motor.but don't move ... No power to the motor during fill ... has to be the motor? ... update ..I can't find more than 45v to the motor during agitate or spin. Capacitor reads 45mF
Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 1 year ago.

There is no power to motor during fill. After it has filled you should 115volts AC at the motor from the violet to white/red wire. If you read this voltage THEN - bad motor , if you don't then either bad lid switch, bad timer, or bad load size switch

Lid swith would be in play even in agitate? ... not just spin?
