How to understand if electric motor for drum spinning is blown, or is it th
e control board for the motor to spin the drum>?
Amana Washer NFW7300WW00 Front Loader
When reassembling the washer after replacing the drum inside I didn't feel
the need to attach the softener tube, or just forgot too. Don't use softene
And as a result blew either the motor or control board for the motor which
is on that side and at bottom of washer
Circuit Breaker keeps tripping when the washer goes to spin the drum
I checked out the readings on motor and board
Not much from motor except for some ohms, and some ohm readings off a parti
cular few connections on the control board
I bought a used drum control board off EBay, and I am getting the same sort
of readings, except less ohms. Of which I would figure for a washer motor
that was used more than what my motor was, or is.....
All I had needed was a new Agitator Arm
The old one rusted off the drum, and drum wobbled real bad, but stopped use
and got another used but good whole drum assembly off EBay and replaced
Why did it rust, washer is in the basement, humid, but a humidifier is, and
the plants I have in and around the house thrive off the water from a humi
The Washer Worked great! For two loads and then started to trip the circuit
breaker on the wall plug, but there was no water anywhere on the bottom or
back of washer that I could see, even with a flashlight. LED Replacement n
ulbs by Dorcy are worth the moo'la, just make sure you get the right led fo
r the batteries used!
When I took washer apart, again, and BOOM there was the loose softener hose
! But the loose hose was above the Motor and kind of above but to the side
of a control board which has a plastic tray covering it
But hardly any water, there was some from the front of the washer seal arou
nd the front rim, I think cause of soap build up, but it is approaching old
Cleaned the rubber seal any ways....
There was only three suspension rods supporting the washer drum, only three
. Yet there are four attachment points for these rods. So I bought another
off EBay and now four! Four on so many other front load washers I have help
ed to clean out!
i think past a point of waste of my money now, somewhere round 230 in parts
, but I did not say that!
Figuring something to learn from
Hell, I got one cool fire box from the old drum, have another to give to my
sister if this washer doesn't stop tripping the circuit breaker and clean
