Hi

You can test the resistance of the motor but to be honest it will show up fine.

As the motors on these are magnetic motors and if they go weak they fail and gives the 5 flashes like you have. But the resistance of the motor will show up as ok when you test them.

What you can try is remove the motor and from there just check theres no debris in there around the impeller on the motor as this can cause that fault as well.

But if the motor impeller is clear then its the motor itself as to be honest ive replaced loads of them in the past for this fault so its not an uncommon fault you have here as i said we do replace loads of them for this issue.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

Hi ok thanks for that, is pump part number cp045-010pu, the washer motor?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

Hi

Yes the part is called the wash motor but the part number you posted isn't a whirlpool part number. It could be a suppliers ref number. So if you can post the model number I can get the part number for you.
