    This is whirlpool topload washing machine's motor.I have to make an external testing wire for this motor to test agitation,draining water and to spin.I searched and found looping yellow/white and red/blue for spin...This looping connected to 230VAC.Instead of yellow I connected Orange wire...While trying this wiring the main MCB tripped.I tried with several motors but MCB tripped always.

    Please provide connection details to check agitation,draining water and to spin.

    That would be very hard. If possible connect everything to the original washing machine and try to measure what does every wire do. We don't have that knowledge unless there is someone who has practically repaired washing machines, especially this model.

    Disclaimer for the stupid:
    Do this at your own risk! This is dangerous and you should not do it at home!

    Check out Youtube for videos on how to reuse washing machine motors - they also explain what the various wires are for.
