I recently had to replace the pump on my WFL2000 washing machine as the old
pump was randomly failing to start. On examining the old pump I can find
nothing wrong with the impeller mechanism, which leads me to believe its

what kind of capacitor should I replace it with if I experience a similar
problem in future? (I can't read the description on the capacitor body).
