INGLIS WASHER WIZ WANTED: MOTOR TESTING ISSUE

I am looking for help on troubleshooting this Inglis direct drive2 speed washer. The red wire is line, yellow is neutral. I bought a new motor (used), my washer spins but no agitation. After testing the red wire what would be the other line wire to test for the opposite direction. Are these Inglis motors ever defective and work in one direction only? Am I correct that the wash and spin cycles are effected with a change of direction of the motor? Any help would be much appreciated, Richard Wiring Diagram: http://www.ripway.com/members/getfile.asp?file =\\inglis%5Fmtr%5Fdia%2Ejpg

Your link requires a username and password.
Generalizing: If there are only 2 wires and the supply is AC voltage. It is a one way motor.
If the motor is DC, there must be a controller to switch the polarity of the motor.
IF AC and you insist it is 2 way, there must be 3 or more wires.

Lets try again, how about:

I think this is a 2 way as there are I think 5 wires going to it and my other washers used to be 2 way. There is attached to the exterior of the mtr a 2" black round thing with two wires going to it, would this be what is called a controller? What I was also hoping to find out what is the commonest problem encountered with these driect drive motors.
................looking forward....Rick
