Asko Washing Machine Won't Spin

Hello croll and users group,
Some four years ago this subject was discussed here, as copied below. I appear to have the exact same problem, and I am trying to determine if my motor needs to be replaced as well. I do see wires marked MO1 through MO6 (MO6 is green/yellow, and should be ground), there is no MO7. On the motor end there is one blue wire, 4 black ones and a yellow/green one. MO1 connects to the blue wire, MO6 of course to the ye/gn one. These are my measurements: 1-2 34.7 ohm 1-3 34.7 ohm 2-3 34.7 ohm 4-5 3 ohm Everything else is open. The motor is Siemens 1BV5565-2BM. The repairguy came, never openedd up the machine, and said that a new motor was needed, at a cost of about half that of a new machine!
So here's the question: do you think that the motor is bad or not? Thanks a lot!

Original post: At the start of the spin cycle, you should see the tub rotate in one direction a few seconds, then the other intermittently before it actually goes into spin. Does it do that much? Does it tumble in wash? (be sure, it's important...) Or, does it seem to do everything ok up until it gets ready to go into the high speed spin then it takes a nap? I would take off the lower panel so you can see into it, put it in spin cycle and watch what happens. If the motor seems to make a funny whining sound and you see sparks ( a few are normal, the motor uses brushes) you may have a bad motor. You can unplug the machine and check the motor windings if you have a digital ohm meter. You should find the following... between wires marked "MO2" and "MO3" you should have 2 (two) ohms. "MO4" and "MO5" should be 5 (five) ohms and "MO6" and "MO7" should be 71 (seventy one) ohms. (all can be + or - 10%) If you find other than these readings you have a bad motor. If you do have a motor, depending on when you bought it, the part should have a 4 year part warranty past the original first year. (As does the pump and timer) Good luck!
