You do have a voltmeter? Can you get to the washer motor connector and see if you get 12 volts when you activate the switch?. mPut the meter leads into the connector in place of the washer motor connector

Let me know how I can help

Thank you

I agree, no need for a call here.

What color are the wires that had power. The washer motor only has 2 pins, a green and a black

I live in dauphin co. Pa wont have time to look at it til saturday
Expert:  George H. replied 3 days ago.

OK, I will watch for your post on Saturday. I am in the eastern time zone.

You said you have 5 wires? The washer motor only has two so be sure you have the testlight in the washer motor connector taking the place of the motor. If it lights when you activate the washer switch then repolace the motor if it does not let me know and we can check the rest of the circuit.
