Hi all,
I have a Samsung WA45M7050AW/A4-00 at a good customers home
when put into cycle and started it sits then cold fill pulses. in diagnostic I can't get main motor to run
shift actuator moves, drain pump will run, I don't have fast track for this model, I do have service manual but it is worthless
Fast track from similar will test, water valves ,pump  all ok but main motor will not run this is VRT. So if rotor is moved by hand motor will start to run somewhat
Customer said they did heavy load then this happened
what input is control looking for hall sensor, clutch shifter etc.
Still wish this was 1993 and I did 3 couplers, 2 lid switches, a pump and 2 thermal fuses on Whirlpools the great days!!!
Thanks all hope you can help
If only they still sold the Direct Drive
Couplers were a gift from Whirlpool to Service Techs
