Do you have any idea of the model number or any information about the OL (temperature) the voltaje is for 220 V. Do you think that it would it be interesting for the forum some photos of the procedure ? .
i will say this i ran into a problem with a washer they would do everything but motor would not turn. it was a 110v. the belt broke so i thought hey replace the belt all good. NOPE. when i was doing some research i seen a thing on another site saying about open and closing the door switch so many times. My model didnt look like the model that they was showing the test being done on but figued after all the testing i did what the heck. you unplug unit and open and close door switch so many times i think its 5 and volla motor started to work. i was ready to junk unit but the door switch fixed issue. Just thought i would throw that out there
