Part Diagnosis

Check the drum bearings and idler pulley for smooth and easy rotation.  Bad bearings can be the cause (instead of the motor) of either symptom 1 or symptom 2.  If motor is not starting, check the door switch, start switch, and fuse for proper operation before replacing motor. For additional help troubleshooting your motor call the U-FIX-IT store for free assistance with diagnosis.
