« on: July 29, 2015, 07:07:17 PM »
Got a whirlpool ultra care 2 that has a burnt electrical smell to it. It fills but thats it. from that im thinking lid switch. But the burning smell is a mystery. Im going to check it tomorrow. Just want to be prepared. How do I check if the motor is burnt out?

How do you test the motor for electrical failure?

You sure you don't have a bad start capacitor or burn't out start capacitor. They are usually mounted on the motor or on the back frame under the water valves. Check that 1st.

I didnt even see the capacitor on it. Just wire clipped to the motor. The plug was a 15 amp plug on a 20 amp circuit and was broken. I changed that and it ran regular but has a burnt smell to it. The pump is clear the motor turns good and the coupler is good. Everything seems fine just has a burnt smell and has some black grease caked on the plate that the motor attaches to. The transmission doesnt seem to be leaking.

You must test the capacitor with a Multi Meter with Capacitor Tester if you meter has it. You can not test a Capacitor with Ohm;s you could blow your meter if done so due to the current stored in the capacitor. The Brown or Black residue on the motor could be from your capacitor melting or blown. There is a wax residue if it burns out. Did you find the capacitor on the back wall under the hot/cold valves? or it could be mounted to the motor? Let us know what you find. If your motor is pulling more than 9.9 amps it could be the windings in the motor overheating. Put an Amp meter on the Black wire coming from the 110 volt electrical cord on the console and you'll see how much amps your motor is pulling in spin, agitate cycle.

capacitors are measured in MF. Microfarance. Most caps will have the Mf stamped right on it.

So i cant use multimeter. What is used to test it? U Tube is testing in ohms.  Thats odd and im not about to blow my meter.
