Whirlpool Cabrio H2Low
« on: December 20, 2013, 09:48:11 PM »

Have a hell of a time with this Whirlpool Cabrio H2Low Washer Model # WTW5500XW1 machine is not agitating nor spinning. Replaced Motherboard, actuator, splutch assembly, lid switch and even tried a new motor that I had sitting on the shelf. Banging my head against the wall on this one. I guess my last resort is a new capacitor before I take a Sledge hammer to it. Any thoughts?

You might want to check for a broken wire at the motor, sometimes vibration breaks one.

Where I have had them broken is in the plastic wrap, right where there plastic ties are.

If the start circuit was open, the motor would still get run current and probably pop the breaker.

Check continuity of wires from control to motor. I've found a couple with a break in the red wire where it goes around support at the right rear corner.
