What can happen is one of the motor windings will open.

... ohm out the windings?

The ones that I have see do this have been an open low motor winding and yes you can check ohms on the coils to confirm. But I have been told by other techs that a malfunctioning centripetal switch in the motor will cause the same problem . I have never seen it but can see how it would have the same effect. So if the low winding was open then you would know the motor was bad but if it is not open then it may still be the motor.
