  The low speed motor winding resistance value is incorrect in that manual. It should be 1.8 to 2.6 ohms, not 18 to 26.

Figure this one out.  Left machine week ago inoperative.  Posted up.  Went back armed with motor, capacitor, temperature switch.  Expecting bad motor plugged machine in opened water valves, set water level switch to medium.  Tub filled,  meter set to closed agitate switch read 123vac on fill side.  Put leads on full side, reading low voltage.  Filling shuts off, Voltage jumps to 123vac on full side & machine agitates.  Set timer to spin cycle, washer drains & begins spinning after tub drains partially.

Had dead washer week ago, fill only difference I see is that hot water side was closed do to customer replacing water heater.  Did not think that mattered last week when filling unit with cold setting.

Spent some time there washing several loads of clothes, Machine works great.   I have checked wiring & spade terminals for corrosion, A problem in this gulf coast air.  I could not discern any thing out of ordinary.   Unit is working like new all cycles, temp switch working all 4 settings, extra rinse working all settings.    The Gods of wash playing with me?    or the customer, a Jehovah Witness.

Thought crossed my mind many times in the past with several machines that have acted up.  I go thru connecting & disconnecting connections, cleaning suspect connections with brush & electrical connection cleaner.   Knock on wood have not been back yet.  But I do guarantee my work & if I do I have parts to repair if indeed a part has gone bad.
Being down along lower Texas coast the salt air plays havoc with electrical & mechanical components.  It will rust stainless steel in a few years also if not taken care of with SS cleaner.
I post good or bad results to keep everyone informed when I seek assistance, Although I don't believe I will be back anytime soon, I did give a years guarantee on electrical problems with the machine (that is how I justify the Blue book pricing which is in another topic.
 I will post up if I do go back for a follow up repair on this washer.   Nothing worse than not following thru posting results on this forum.   :thanks: for all feedback.  I have lots more to learn before I am almost perfect.   Nobody is perfect.    Patricio  :cheers:
