GENERAL
Any of the following
can cause a motor to not
_pin
or
agitate
properly.
Therefore,
before
dssuming
a motor
needs to
be replaced, the
following
areas should all be checked and the
appropriate service done.
To check the
motor,
use a 38183
motor
test
cord as shown in the following
drawings.
If the
motor will not operate when properly connected
to the test cord, the motor will
need to be
replaced.

Clean and lubricatrtne
motor carriage. The
motor
carriage should be
lubricated with
Maytag Poly
Lube Grease, Part No. 2-4999
or 2-3959.
Check
for
a
broken
or
missing motor
carriage roller(s).
If a roller
is broken,
a
2-5000
motor
roller
repair
kit
should be
used.
The Maytag washer i_esigned
to operate on
an individual 15 atit_ branch circuit supply-
ing 120 volts, 60 Hz currtnt.
If the lights
dim in a customer's home when the washer
b_,gins to
spin,
this
usually
indicates
a
voltage problem.
If the voltage is between
100 and 110 volts when the washer begins to
spin, installing a 2-6103
start capacitor in
series with
the start winding
will
provide
additional
starting torque.
This additional
torque allows the motor
to move from the
start
winding to the run winding without
the motor overheating and tripping on the
overload protector.
If the voltage is below
100 volts, contact an electrician.
