I'm sorry, I can't get the photos to load clearly.
Sorry for all the details. The really important question is in the middle of this.
Motor switch pins 1 & 10 = 0 ohms.
When I pulled the cover off I can see the contact pads separated.
Lid switch reads 0 ohms, open, 0 ohms, open - with opening and closing of the lid.
Opened the motor switch: Burnished all the internal contact pads. Burnished all the external wire terminal blades.
This photo was before I did that.
What is the small switch right behind the motor switch? The disconnected white wire goes to it.
After I cleaned all that; the first time I ran it, when it went into Spin, It acted up, started slowly, click click click, and stopped. Apparently I used too small a Lid Switch jumper wire and it melted
! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFRT-_qVpt8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=003B-B8pHRgI replaced that Lid Switch jumper with a thicker gauge wire, have run the washer 5 times, and it has run beautifully ever since.
The lid switch measures 0 ohms when closed.
I was surprised how much current goes through it (because of how the thinner jumper melted).Is there any way the lid switch is my problem?
Maybe it measures 0 ohms with no current on it - but has a higher resistance when the normal operating current goes through it. That is my basic question.
Other notes and questions:
My wiring diagram shows the Speed Switch goes through the Centrifugal Switch. Does the Start Spin mode go through the Speed Switch?
Is it a player in this game?
I can see plastic from my brand new clutch assembly all over the top of my new transmission, and also flying in the air when it goes into spin. Why?
The machine has a terrible out of balance, even when there is nothing in it. I removed and rotated the agitator 180* and there is no difference.
I removed the agitator and ran the spin cycle and it is also out of balance - just not as severe.
Is something else worn out? Or is it this transmission? Or, is this okay?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GG4u-ptvxFs
Thank you again for all your help.
