    I need some help to know which size capacitor to buy. I have tried to look it up online by the numbers but have not had any luck. It is from a GE washing machine main board that became damaged by a power surge. The numbers on the cap are 14S271K and at the bottom there is 809. I am attaching a pic of it. Identity and a good website to get it would be great. Thank you.

    Thank you very much. I have looked online to find where to order this and am having a bit of trouble finding it for sale. Any good websites that you know that sell this exact one? Thanks again

    Check here.

    I presume you're from somewhere with 220 or 240 V mains?

    I'm in the U.S. I think I can find it from here with your recommended sites and part number. Thank you everyone for your help. Very appreciated.

    Hats off to V1. It did what it was supposed to do and gave it's life so we wouldn't see a total meltdown.
