Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

How to Diagnose Washing Machine Problems

Instructions

  1. Step 1If the washer won't start, check the power cord or reset the circuit breaker depending on the issue. It may be overheated and shut off temporarily. Let it cool for 30 minutes, and if it still won't start, call a professional.
  2. Step 2If the motor transmission failed or the drive belt has broken, these need the assistance of a professional.
  3. Step 3If the washer won't drain, clean out the drain hose and straighten any kinks. If the drain hose fits too tightly in the standpipe, adjust it to allow for a minimum of 1.25 inches for airflow so water can drain.
  4. Step 4If the washer won't fill or fills slowly, turn the faucet handles counterclockwise as far as possible. This is usually the result of partially open faucets.
  5. Step 5Call a profession if the washer overfills. This means the water-inlet valve or switch is defective.

Pro form 365 won't start


Dear Sir:
I will help you, please do the exact step:
PROBLEM: The power does not turn on
SOLUTION: a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor is plugged into a properly grounded outlet (see page 10). Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 10. Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped outlets. b. After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is fully inserted into the console. c. Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord. If the switch protrudes as shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset the circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then press the switch back in.
Finally: check, the breaker from the home, if there tripped, check this, and Reset.
I will recomend when you finally set up, install Stabilizer Voltage, is cheaper us$15,00 aprox
Thank you in advance, sincerely.
Blessing, if you need additional help, please contact me.

    my maytag neptune has no power any suggestions


    Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.
