I have a Whirlpool washer, the model is LXR9245E. The problem right now is after fill the water, it can not agitate. I only heard the timer sound but did not hear any motor sound at all. But it can spin and drain the water out if I change the timer to spin cycle.
I checked the coupler and it looks fine and I tried to check the motor resistance. The resistance between the black and yellow wire is 8.1 ohm. From the internet, it said this is the start windings and the normal value should be 4 - 7 ohms. Other resistance like high speed windings and low speed windings seems to be in the normal range.
Do you think I got a bad motor or what could be the possible problem?
Thanks very much for the help!
