The machine occasionally makes a noise in the vicinity of the motor but it is difficult to know if its the motor of something else making the noise. The machine is mostly silent until deciding to drain water or let more in. The motor itself does not have a capacitor, but there is a separate motor control unit with a large capacitor inside it. How would I test that if that is the correct thing to test? Many thanks.
I do have a microfarrad setting, so can test it. Do I need to remove the capacitor, or can I test it in place? Once tested, presumably my multi-meter should so the value as indicated on the side of the capacitor?
Many thanks for your excellent service so far.
Hi, I have replaced the capacitor, although I was doubtful it was faulty, and sure enough it has made no difference. Sorry, but do you have any next steps to try?
