Shorted it again.  First time, went to 15 then back to the left.  Reversed the leads went to the right and stayed at zero.

I followed the link on here to order the parts but I can't find it.  I would like to support the site by buying from here if it is available.

Well I put the new capacitor on and it is still not working. 
It locks, unlocks, locks and starts to spin to sense the load, on the second try it just has a loud hummmm. 

I have now changed the actuator and capacitor.   Last year I changed the water pump.  Anyone have any other ideas?  When I did the forced test it worked.  I just don't know what else to try.

I have been reading and reading posts and looking at the washer.  Could it be the belt?  The pulleys have black marks on them.  Everything moves freely, but I wonder if the belt is just worn out?

Update... i got a new belt and put it on, still didn't solve the problem.  It starts up, clicks, locks lid, unlocks lid, locks, starts to sense the load and then makes a very loud humm mm that can only be stopped by unplugging in.

Check motor winding circuit  for continuity back at control board connections, if good put unit into a test mode and check for 120v to motor in CW and CCW rotation, if not present you have a failed control, if present you have a bad motor or wire that fails under load-next check for power down at the motor itself, if power than failed motor. You will need wiring diagram for your machine to check @ appropriate connections if you are not comfortable doing this with live power than I would suggest calling a tech out for further repair.

Are those the only two things you think could be failing?  If it is the board or motor, it isn't worth replacing those.  The board was replaced 4 years ago.  And the thing passed the hard test, so I just don't understand it.
