Maytag washer mah4000aww spin cycle
« on: December 25, 2007, 12:34:19 PM »

Hello, Merry Christmas
I own the above and I have read the other threads. My R11 doesn't look burned. I flipped the board over it still looks fine. I would have to de-solder it to get an accurate reading. Now on the wax motor. I disconnected the wire and tested across the leads, it read OL open line. Is that the correct reading. My door lock light at first was working but after I took the washer lid and front off and put it back on the door lock light doesn't work. Could the wax motor go south without taking out R11 and Q6?

This is what is says in the service manual.

Wax Motor Check - Door Lock
M e c h a n i s m
Check the wax motor for proper resistance.
This check should be made with the electrical
supply disconnected from the washer. Remove
the wire harness from the wax motor
terminals and place the ohm meter probes on
the terminals of the wax motor. The wax motor
should have a resistance of approximately
1900 ohms at room temperature.

Could the wax motor go south without taking out R11 and Q6?

Yes, if your lucky.

Merry Christmas,
