a couple weeks after replacing the back housing (more busted bearings) our cloths would be sopping wet after all cycles completed. seems it's never going to a fast spin at all. it does tumble, and the timer motor does its thing. With nothing in it will fast spin though, just not with clothes in it. Figured I left something unplugged, or loose, but nothing is hanging loose.

I went through the motor diags and everything seems OK except my cheap old radioshack digital meter says .5 Kohms instead of 3 MegOhms on pins 1-2-3 of the 6 pin. unless I'm reading my meter wrong, or my meter is faulty, this means I have a bad board right? is it even possible for it to fail in a way that it will tumble, and fast spin with no load, but not come up to speed with a load in it? Or would this me a motor problem instead?
