Hi, I just want to repair the motor of my washer machine . It has a thermal protector and goes off after some seconds of starting up.

I would like to test which winding is bad and know if I need for sure to open the motor case. I have tested the capacitor and it is fine.

If I turn the coupling I do not hear any strange noise coming from the motor. I have tested the motor without the washer transmission.

Yes, thank you for reply. I have tested the run winding and the thermal protector stays in. It seems that the problem is on the timer. As I mentioned, I have checked the capacitor but just if it gets charged and it does, not if the rating is right My multimeter does not cover that range
