Hi thabnks for the question.

Before it quit working was it taking longer to do a load ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
What happened is that the drum stop turning, but i could still hear the motor running, so i removed the drum to take a look and found that the guide roller was jammed.
So i cleaned that up and blow everything out with a air hose and put everything back together.
Turned on the timer and could hear the timer running but the motor was not running.
So I replaced the motor today and still no go, so I'm asking for help.

Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.
You cant close it if its open its a non resetable thermo disc You have to test it with a meter to see if its open
