This motor is also often referenced as W11283592. The best pictures of it are in http://www.gmcc-welling.com/Homeen/Product/detail/id/187.html and https://partsdr.com/part/w11283592-drive-motor. The most informative site I found is https://partsdr.com/part/w11283592-drive-motor There I found a sentence: "The motor should measure between 3.5 to 6 ohms through both the clockwise and counterclockwise windings."
My connector has 4 wires:
- Earth ground - green.
Black to Yellow -> resistance is 5 Ohm Black to Red -> resistance is 5 Ohm Yellow to Red -> resistance is 10.1 Ohm
No connection from Green to other wires.
When I connect 120V AC to Black and Yellow the motor can spin in CW or CCW direction. When I connect 120V AC to Black and Red the motor can spin also in CW or CCW direction.
From the statement on the Sears site I expected direction of the spin to be stable and consistent based on the wire that is energized.
Am I wrong or is there something wrong with the motor? 3rd option? Confused... And frustrated, since I can not find a Service manual for any of the washing machines that use it. Chinese motor in an american product... Tech support is minimal.
Update 1: I've ordered and received a 50 uF running cap. Here is the spec: http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1796777.pdf I've connected it in series with the red wire, and now the motor starts CW every time. So far I've not tried to disconnect the cap once the motor is running. So far so good, but no load yet either.
It looks like Sears web page mislead me (or I misunderstood) - I thought it implied that the 2nd winding was only for the CCW operation.
