Whirlpool-Kenmore Direct-Drive Washer: No Spin, No Pumpy, No Nuttin’; Secret Samurai Trick Revealed

Whirlpool Direct Drive Washer - Burnt Motor Neutral Wire

See that burned wire? Yeah, I see that a lot in these cases. Seems like something’s horribly, dreadfully wrong when really it’s just a burnt wire at the motor harness connector, and usually the neutral (white) wire.

This is one of those cases where:

1- it’s a trivial problem but
2- it causes major gastro-intestinitis
3- it takes a professional appliantologist with hard-won real-world, but grossly under-appreciated experience to find this problem.

And now you’re gettin’ it for free. Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about that. Maybe you could buy me a beer to help me forget about it and move on to something else. Domo!
