Hi. Recently our washing machine broke and for fun I have decided to repair it. The problem appears to be in the control board. Not knowing how to properly test components on the board I did it probably not the way others would do it. With board on my desk I connected it to 240v and using my multimeter I followed the rail until I found a voltage drop. There are 2 large capacitors connected in series (both are 250v 560uf). Positive is 240v. But, where they are connected in sequence there is drop to 88v. Is that normal or is that the problem?
