Question about Zanussi FLA1201W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Assembly post-belt breakage

Having removed the casing of the machine, the remains of the belt had wrapped around the motor, unpluging wires. Have logically found orange connection and one of the earth wires. However one earth inline cylindrical connection remains. Any ideas where it might be attatched ? Any help would be gratefully received mice

    I have a similar problem with my Zanussi ZWF 1210. The belt got wrapped about the shaft, taking wires with it. I'm left with 1 red & 1 grey wire - unsure where they should go?

How do I replace the power cord on an electrolux 8502A vacuum cleaner?


1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.

Wcvh62604fww starts fills and drains but does not agitate or spin. It does turn the drum in the beginning to test the load


These symptoms appear to be a problem with the drive system which includes the inverter that drives the drive motor and of course the drive belt. Verify first if you can hear the drive motor running and if yes, the drive belt has broke or slipped off the pulleys. Remove the screws securing the rear access panel and pull it outward from the middle to access and check the condition of the drive belt. Reinstall it if possible or replace it if necessary. Wrap it around the motor pulley then on one side of the drum pulley and turn the pulley in the direction in such a way that the belt will wrap the drum pulley.

Turn the drum pulley and the motor pulley with and without the drive belt if upon checking, the drive belt is still on. It will be known if there's restriction in either of the motor or the drum that prevents the machine from agitating or spinning. Try to start the machine with the drive belt off if no restriction is found which indicates that either the drive motor or the inverter is at fault.

Check the resistance of the motor windings (normally around 6 ohms across each of the 3 phases;otherwise, replace the motor) if the motor still doesn't run with the drive belt off. Check the continuity of the wire harness connecting the inverter and the drive motor if the winding resistances are good. Consider replacing the inverter if no problem is found with the drive motor and the wire harness.

You don't have to accept or reject this post in order to add information or post comments and follow-up questions should you need further help. But accepting a solution does not stop you from communicating with the expert. You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.

I have a GE washer model wdss412oaww how do I tighten the belt


Greetings,

this washer has a belt that more or less tightens itself...if its cracked or split the washer usually makes noise as the belt flops around and will not wash or spin properly. The motor assembly must be removed and pump taken off to replace belt. The front must be removed to gain access to motor pump assembly. There is four nuts that hold motor to frame..Remove the belt off the pulley before you do anything to make it easier on you...take the four nuts off and remove motor/pump and sit with pump up...play close attention how the belt goes through the pump and around the post of the pump to motor......It is possible, that you may need to replace the pump...if it gives you any problems coming off...it may be need to be replaced as well...I hope this helps and if so,,,please rate my help.....Bruce Denton

How do I get to the igniter on my WP Gas Dryer (LGR8648PG)?


In order to get to the burner assembly where the igniter is located, you will need to open the dryer cabinet and remove the drum by following these steps:


1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.

2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.

3. Unplug the door switch connector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.

4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.

5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should now have complete access to the dryer interior.


6. Remove the dryer drum. Release the belt tension, by pushing the idler pulley (tensioner) to the right (away from the belt) and remove the belt from around the motor pulley. Then, with the belt still wrapped around the drum, use the belt to lift the entire drum out of the cabinet.

You can reference the following websites for helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with assembling and disassembling your dryer:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com

Once you have completed your repairs, reassemble the dryer as follows:

1. Re-install the drum, making sure the rollers are seated properly in the groove around the perimeter in the rear. Make sure the belt is looped around the drum with the groove side facing the drum.

2. Have someone hold the drum in place while you re-install the belt over the tension pulley and motor. If working alone, kneel down so you can see the tensioner and motor and rest the drum front on your shoulder or knee.

NOTE: With the belt removed, this may cause the idler pulley (tensioner) to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place.



3. Reinstall the belt tensioner by following these steps:

a. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum.

b. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

c. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and push the wheel to the RIGHT while pulling the belt over the drive motor pulley.

NOTE: If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for WHIRLPOOL and refer to diagram H (This model Amana is manufactured by Whirlpool).


4. Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assist may make it easier.


5. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws.

NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.


If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Drum does not agitate water goes in and it just humms, no agitation or spin


The drive belt is broken or the motor's rotor is stuck. Open the door and rotate the drum manually. The drive belt is worn or broken if you can freely rotate the drum. The rotor is most probably stuck if you cannot turn the drum.

Visual check can be done by removing the back panel. Remove the screws holding it to the cabinet and pull it off. Replace the belt if it is worn or broken. Simply wrap it around the drive motor pulley and on one side of the drum pulley. Rotate the drum pulley in such a way that the belt completely wraps around it.

Try to free the rotor if it's stuck by lubricating it and forcibly turning it back and forth until it turns freely. To remove the motor, disconnect the motor wiring harness and ground wire from the terminals and remove the mounting bolt. Pull the motor out of the mounting slots. To reinstall or replace, simply slide it back into the mounting slots and secure it with the mounting bolt.

In some cases, the drum will not spin due to a broken drum pulley. Post it back if that is the case.

Treadmill Incline Works, belt does not move


Check the drive belt. It may be loose or broken. If the belt is loose, then to tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down.

Fan and clutch assembly


It is regular threads. You need to use a strap wrench to hold the pulley. Or make one by using a old leather belt. Just wrap the belt around the pulley. Put one end through the belt loop in the opposite direction.
