Hello mmhmmd

What is the MODEL Number and year of your dishwasher. Model can be found on sticker inside.

Did you turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes to see if it resets the system?

If you do not have this equipment mentioned below you may want to call a pro!

Here are four things to check for this problem!

Water source turned off
Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.

Float switch
The float switch allows water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not enter into the machine

Defective water inlet valve

If there is 110v across the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill, the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If the water does not enter, the valve is defective.

Defective Timer

The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Let me know how it goes?
Thank You , Huuum

Suzuki solio Sterring not smoot and motor is hot

I suspect the belt is lose. Its probably not turning water pump or the power steering pump. You car has an electric cooling fan, but it still won't cool if the pump isn't circulating the water through the radiator. Should be easy to tell. Just look under the hood with the engine running and have someone turn the wheel. You should be able to see, hear and or smell if the belt is slipping

I have an AEG F55002ViOP dishwasher. It's making a strange grinding sound and showing error code 30. Can anyone advise how to solve this please.

Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.

If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Good luck.

My whirlpool ultimate II washer was working fine and just stopped. I could smell something like wiring getting hot and now it won't do anything. The basket is still full of clothes and water.

remove the frame,pop off the two clips that hold the pump on and pull the pump off of the motor shaft,start the machine,if it runs you have something stuck in the pump.if it does run get a shop vac and remove the water from the tub,then remove the clamps on the hoses just push them down the hose with a pair of plyers then loosen one hose at a time so you can vac out the water,once you have all the water out you can remove the pump and see what's stuck in it,usually,a sock,womens underwear or a metal from a bra.if it's not the pump move the shaft on the motor with the plyers were the pump slides onto,you could have a flat spot on the motor and by moving the motor at the shaft might free it up,i've done this,some motors will run all the time after this or it could stop again on the next load,watch it and see what happens.
watch video and it will show you how to get at the pump and motor.good luck with your washer

Your pump is not working because it is not extracting the water. You are right with the smell of burning electrical. Depending on the age of the washer it might cost more to repair than purchase a new one. There could be a leak somewhere because water got to the wires and maybe shorted the pump. Good Luck

My FWSB5700DS0 top load washer can't get up to speed in the spin cycle. It spins up for a 5-7 seconds and before reaching full speed, it stops spinning, and the pump stops pumping. Then after a 10-15 ...

It sounds like the motor is going out. The motor will shut down when it gets to hot and once it cools it will try to work again. Motors are around $150.00 on the average. You can look at the motor and get the part number off of it and then look on eBay and find one a little cheaper.

Washing machine stopped spinning after several loads, and I smell a slight burning smell, won;t drain either.

it sounds like u might have some electrical problem in the controls however it may be the pump itsself has gone out but if u r getting an electrical smell could be causing the pump not to get power or the pump has burnt up causing the wires to get hot and start to melt myy bet is that the pump has gone out its not horribly bad to change out but kind of difficult for someone who isnt used to doing this kind of stuff

Acrid electric smelling smoke pouring out of machine when pumping down wash water. motor feels hot to touch.

If you are not overloading the machine, and the front of the motor is pretty hot, then it is going bad. If it smells like rubber, it is the belt.

Smoke and a burning smell coming from washer, wont spin water out

Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power and Turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
4. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
5. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
8. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
10. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
11. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
12. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

The smell may well be coming from the motor if it is overleaded or has a problem. If the above does not solve the issue then you may be looking at the replacement of the motor.

Will not turn on. Smells like burning rubber. May have overloaded. What is broken?

There may be a problem with the motor or with the drive train. If the washing machine uses a belt drive, you might need to replace the belt. I found a new one for my friend's washing machine at autozone for $5. If the belt is ok or the machine uses a gear drive, there might be a problem with the motor. If the motor doesn't turn but still causes a burning smell, it's either jammed or has a problem with the starter circuit. A motor that big takes a a big jolt to get started. I fixed a newer washing machine by opening up the control panel and reconnecting the starter circuit for the motor that come off. The motor was making a burning smell so we knew it was getting power, but we knew it wasn't jammed because I stuck my finger in the water pump (for goodness sake unplug the stupid thing) and could easily turn the motor with my finger. If you think the problem is with the motor, double check all the motor's connections and realize that it may have two or more seperate cables connecting it to various places. If the motor gets hot, turns freely, and won't start, you could also try testing or replacing its starter capacitor, a black tube connected to or attached to the motor.
