Wash motor fault

This has been comming up every few months for nearly two years. Normal solution is to switch everything off ie re boot. This time no luck, took the back off dirve belt is fine, drum and motor move by hand, but on any program the motor is not roating ( I watched with back off). Water fill and drain works just fine and we are not overloading.

Re: wash motor fault

We got the same problem 2 weeks ago. Overode it by swiching everything off and then back on, wish we hadn't as te machine stopped washing 1 week later. Motor has gone $300 and it took the electronic controler out as well $300. Labour $100 plus call out $95. It'sa serious falut and should get it fixed which begs the question why have fault indicator ro this problem if you cna overide it. In addition you probbaly have a minor water leak from above the motor, which can be fixed with silicone. Asko saya it's machine lasts 20 years, think again as for a $1900 machine very disappointed.

Re: wash motor fault

If the problem is fixed by switching the machine on and off, think about one thing: The ON/OFF switch is there bacuse when the machine is not in use, it shall be turned off.

Re: wash motor fault

Sounds like its just time for as motor. The motor is covered for 5 years parts only and 3 years parts and labor. Otherwise expect to pay about $180 for the part from an asko dealer. Only one I know of in the US is American Appliance in denver. 303 777 0993. Good Luck!

Have f11 fault tried to reset and machine starts up, turns a few times, then gives a strange noise then f11 appears and pump starts draining, had f11 few years back and was fuse but remember at this time...

sounds like you've either got a stiff motor or gunk in the drum making it difficult for the motor to turn. When the fuse blows the drum won't turn at all but as yours is trying to turn then throwing the fault up it sounds like something is causing too much resistance

We have fitted a new belt as it wasn't spinning but its still not. The motor can be heard with a clicking/sparking noise.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I presume that you thought the belt might be slipping? Unfortunately in this instance the indications are that the motor is malfunctioning.
Options are to change the brushes, if that appears to be a relatively easy task, or to purchase a new motor but please note my pre-typed guidance notes for belts and motors following.

'However it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had'.
In other words you can take a chance!
I changed our Bosch motor (and at the same time the belt of course) a few months ago- it is nearly 20 years old- at a cost of GBP250.

Good luck,
John C

Knocking sound in the spin cycle off balance.

The motor switch that is mounted on the motor may need replacing. The knocking could mean that the "run" winding is cutting off momentarily, and running on the "start" winding of the motor. I dont know about a 22 year old model, but in most "near modern" machines, the switch has a plastic actuator that is pushed when the motor obtains near-run speed, that plastic may be worn or the actuator part on the motor may be at fault. If you replace the motor, you usually get this switch as part of the deal.

Hi. F13 indicates dryer fan motor or thermistor problem
If you can't hear the fan motor running on the dry cycle then it is probably faulty.
Hope this helps.

I was given a 2nd hand Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive051 washing machine a few months ago but now it is not filling with water or agitating in order to wash the clothes.

if some sort of control and lights on but just doesnt start then lid switch. if beeping instead of start then its found a fault. its well over 10 years old , may not be worth repair

Fault indication: water inlet fault

see if there is a blockage in the level switch. the switch operates on air pressure within the dip tube and the diaphragm in the switch. there may be a spider's nest in the tube or a wasp's nest in the tube.
