The motor reverses rotation for pump out. I am reluctant to tell you how "I" test it for proper rotation.

To add more information to this problem. I check all the hoses from end to end and they are clear. Also, what I did put my finger in the pump and turn by hand an feel the pump blades turning. Discover that I could hold the blades from turning with my finger. I am guessing that I might have two problems. One that motor not reversing itself, and two the pump shaft could be broken.

Does anyone know if I can switch wires on the timer to cause the motor to reverse itself. I guessing with the wires switch and that works, I have problem in the timer panel. As far as the pump not sure if it is engage all the time or not.

Thanks

  The shaft will turn as I hold blades with my fingers and by turn it by hand.

Blades are stationary & pulley & shaft will turn means pump is bad. Does the tub spin in drain or does it aggitate? If it spins then all you need is the pump.It will spin even if it does not drain.

Hi,

The washing machine go through all it cycles correctly, but the motor never changes direction to pump out. I can see the pump turning. I don't know if the pump engages when it in the mode of pumping out the water. hopefully I saying this correctly.

Does the tub spin when it is the spin section on the timer? Or does it aggitate(back& forth)

Hi again everyone,

I know the timer is bad, I getting replacement today. I was trying to determed if the pump might be bad. It is hard to believe that both components would go bad at the same time.

Thanks

Hi

Just let everyone know, I replace the timer "did not" fix the problem. Motor is still spinning one way. Money down the tubes. Motor about 3-4 year old. Would the external starter determed which the motor spins?

Thanks
