Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

The washing is not spinning or draining?

Check out this possibilities to confirm the fault in this problem:-- First of all check if the motor is running or not when you turn on the motor. If the motor is not turning on then this problem is due to fault in the motor. But if the motor is getting on and running properly then most probably this problem relates to stuck up or cracked drain pump pulley. It needs to be checked but if the pump pulley is functioning properly then it’s the fault in the drain pump. The drain pump need to replaced.
This will help.thanks.

drum wont turn and will not drain

Possible fault from the controller unit not turning the motor ON and not switching the drain pump.
You need to check the power to the main motor and pump to confirm.Check for jammed motor and clogged drain.

washer is not washing not spinning, its not working, what part doest it need

Unless the washer is checked in detail the exact part cannot be confirmed as you are the witness to the fault.
However it is possible that the control panel, the main program controller and the main motor must be checked to confirm the status.
If the motor does not receive voltage check the program conttroller, if Yes the mpotor needs to be checked.
Dont forget to check the door switch which if faulty will not turn on the set.

when i turn ignition it will not turn over unitil several tries

Possible that the starter motor solenoid is not switching or the starter motor is not engaging due to poor brush contact.
You must also make sure that the ignition switch is working correct by contacting. so a voltage check when the swittch is turned will confirm the fault.

Jacuzzi will not turn on..........is it the Acri-touch switch

1) check the GFCI breaker also where the motor plugs into. 2) check the plug to the motor is good 3) then check to hear a click when the air switch is pressed.
If still problem and no motor, then it is the motor itself.
