Question about Whirlpool AWM5104/1 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Wash cycle operates on low loads only

When we fully load machine the motor just turns half a circle and gives up, then tries again itn reverse and gives up. If we reduce the load works fine. Belt is fine cause the spin cylce is perfect and there is no slippage during the attempted wash cycles.Suspect the start capcitor but need confirmation.

Whay my Hotpoint -Ariston Aquarius WD420 Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer stpos have way the circle


You say it stops half way through cycle (if I have read it right), especially when fast spin starts. Does it stop anywhere else (in wash cycle or rinse cycle)?

I would check the main filter in the sump (pipe from drum to drain pump) and ensure pump itself is not blocked which could cause the pump out time to be exceeded and thus stop the program. A faulty pressure switch could also be responsible.
I would also check the tacho on the motor and connections to main board at bottom of machine near to motor.

Disconnect machine by pulling out plug and wait 10 minutes for capacitors to discharge before doing anything, to protect yourself against residual voltages.

From a retired engineer who owns one of these machines.

WASHER WILL WASH ON ALL CYCLES, BUT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN ON EITHER CYCLE


If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!

Hope this helps.

Delicate cycle stopped on rinse


Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if it is any shorter than 5mm replace brushes.

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:


With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

"tap water closed?" message


Plug off the wall. Check the inlet tubes into your machine (after shutting off wall valve) for any blockage or clogging, both ends of the pipes. Refix carefully with correct threading. Turn on before next wash fully; and after wash turn off valve. It could also be that your wall valve is not on fully when you begin your wash.

And dont forget to rate me pl.
