How to test LG Dishwasher LD-2120WH Electric Motor
« on: May 01, 2014, 11:19:55 AM »
Hello Everyone

Today our LG dishwasher LD-2120WH registered a EL error code. I suspect the motor but would like to be 100% sure.

 I want to test motor. Can you please step by step how to test motor.
Three wires red , blue and white are visible from motor.

It is said to set MM to Ohm/resistance  X1.

The confusion is where do I place the probes of MM. Do I place it on red & blue OR red & white OR white & blue.

It is said the readings should be 0L for good motor and vice verse for bad motor.

I thank you
Gasant

That does not seem to be a USA unit. However it looks as if it has a start/run winding. White being the common leg.
