maytag motor starts and stops
Model Number: mdb9150aww Brand:
5 - 10 years
when i start the DW the motor will just click on and off repeatally. it will do this util the door is opened. i can hear a relay click with the motor behind the control panel. sometimes the motor will start and run until at some point in the cycle it will click on and off again. also when the motor spins down after a cycle or most noticably when the motor clicks, i can hear a whine from the motor/pump area. i suspect a bearing.
i have checked continuity throught all four circuits and have .5-2 ohms. i have only been able to check motor voltage when it just clicks on and off. but when it does i get no more then 20 VAC. is this right?
could i be looking at a new motor due to a bearing failure as well as a control panel for no voltage to the motor??
any wisdom is helpful. thank you.
