Oh great one, your all powerful knowledge of all things appliance has been most helpful in my quest for clean garments. The evil 3E code has been my nemesis of late, and my patient and thorough searching through your forums have correctly guided me to investigate the motor. The machine has spewed forth great amounts of corrosive filth upon this turning device and wrecked havoc on its outer housing, which now has much rust on its lower portion.

I also notice what I assume is a speed sensor on the "back" of the device (which faces the washer door). Although it is "sealed" with rubber, upon removal- much green corrosion can be seen on the board within. After cleaning (scraping with a knife), I reinstalled the whole lot. I was rewarded with high hopes, but alas- I achieved only half a wash cycle.

Does your great mind allow you to infer any way to check the function of this speed sensor. Your helpful tech bulletins and service manuals have enlightened me, but I can find no mention of tests for this gremlin. MEMS sensor tests exist, but do not seem to be what I'm looking for.

I humbly await your insight, O Fermented Grand Master. (all 3 wires check at 3.2 ohms at the motor and at the board).
