washer repair

What kind of measurements are you getting from it? do you have a clamp-on? Does the motor have a start capacitor? is it in good condition? Does the motor have a centrifugal switch? Is that operating correctly?

Does the motor spin freely by hand? Washing machine should have a transmission, is that operating correctly?
