You cannot tell by looking at it if it is bad. If you short it between the terminals and it snaps or pops it is good. No snap no pop it is bad.

If the cap was shorted it would throw the house circuit breaker.

It doesn't spark or snap when I connect poles.  Could I have done something in my clutch replacement that could cause it to go bad?  It may sound like a silly question but it seems too coincidental that the capacitor went out days after I replaced the clutch.

You might have something binding. You can check to correct operation of a tranny using a drill:


This video shows how it all works

I tested the tranny with a drill and it seems to work properly (like in the video) and without any uneven resistence or stops.

Could there be a short in the washer's electrical system?  causing the capacitor to go bad?

These new caps don't have the same stuff in them. PCBs have been outlawed. They don't hold up as well as the older caps did.

Received new capacitor today.  Hooked it up and motor runs well for now.  Hopefully it doesn't start burning capacitors regularly.

Anyone know what this part is (see pic)?  If fell loose in front of me as I was tightening a mounting bolt on the tranny.

Glad to hear the capacitor fixed it.
That is a shipping pin. When the washer was new there was a yellow shipping strap that got pulled out of the washer and it released two of them shipping pins into plastic drop cups. Nothing you need now. :)
