WDB1043M Bendix Washer/Dryer

This unit fails to agitate. Water flows into the tub, then soaks, then the water drains. The only time I attempted to use it ended without success. The belt was checked and appears to be in good condition. No strange noises come from the motor. Help, Obi Wan! You're my only hope...

    I do not have a schematic of the machine, so I don't know where these parts are located. Can you help me locate these parts, and how I can test them? Do you know of any repair and parts store dealing with Bendix in the greater Seattle area? Many, many thanks, Judith

    The unit has not yet been repaired because I have not succeeded in finding a repair shop willing to work on it.

    The washer/ dryer tripped the circuit constantly even after resetting the circuit several times. I tried two seperate circuits to see if the circuit was bad. Husband thinks the motor is bad or the circuit board is bad. We hooked it up to the egenerator to run and it made two loud pops then I turned it off because I was afraid it might start on fire or explode. When we ran it again it pumped water out fine but the drum would not spin. The belt appears fine. There is a bracing arm in the back that broke a few months back and caused the drum to stop spinning but my husband welded it back together and it worked like new. That part is still in place.

Have you taken the back off the machine? It is relatively simple to do. This happened to ours (exact same model) and there is a brace arm that comes from the right side of the machine (when looking at the back) and it braces the drum. It could have broken off and needs to be welded back in place. We are currently having another issue with our machine that may be a bad motor or a bad circuit board and has once again caused it to stop spinning. The part my husband welded back together is still well attached.

Timer was ruined from detergent dripping onto it. Replaced twice already. 1st would go thru cycle but not spin fast enough to dry clothes. 2nd would wash but not drain or spin.


those signs are not neccessarily ur timer, u may have replaced it for nothing. both spin and drain problems are likely located elsewhere?

No agitation or spin? try these:

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.


CHECK THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR, AS THEY WILL HINDER THE AGITATION PROCESS.


Washer will not drain:

Thedrain water pumpis the main part in your washing machine that pumps out the water. If this is defective or has failed in any way, this will be the reason why your washer will not drain the water. Before you order a new drain pump, make sure tocheck the pump to be sure a small object like clothing or similar has not lodged itself insideof it causing the NO DRAIN issue. If the drain pump is not clogged, you can test it with a multimeter and remove and replace if needed. Go to Google or YouTube and search for "Replace Washing Machine Drain Pump" then type your brand and model number of washer to show you details on replacement.

The washing machinedrain hoseis where the water flows through to get the water out.If this drain hose is blocked, kinked, bent, or clogged, the washer will NOT be able to remove the waterfrom the tub. Check the drain hose to be sure it allows the water to flow freely. You can take the drain hose off and run water through it in your sink to be sure it is not blocked. If there is water STILL in the washer when you remove the drain hose, grab a bucket as the water will exit from where you disconnected it
Thewater pump belt(to drain out the water) may have broke or become frayed or loose.If this belt breaks then it is unable to drain and remove the water from your washer. Inspect the belt to see if this is causing theNO DRAINissue and remove and replace if needed.

If thelid switchis not working as required it will cause your washer to not drain (and many other problems).This may be unlikely as a bad lid switch will usually cause your washer to alsonot agitate or spin.However on some models this can vary. The best thing to do if you have a suspected bad lid switch is to test it. It can fail electrically and or mechanically. If mechanical failure is the issue, you should be able to see if it is cracked, broken, or not in place to make contact with the lid. To test it electrically, use a multimeter set on Ohms and test it for continuity

ON the side of the outer tub unit there is a small plastic/rubber hose that goes up to the level switch behind the panel. This sometime fills with water or blocks or is cracked and leaks out air. The purpose of this tube is to hold a pressure in it which increases as the water flows into the tub. This increase in pressure works against a spring tension which you adjust by selection the desired water level. As the water rises the air trapped in the tube reaches a point where the pressure overcomes the setting and allows the switch to turn off the water and move the machine on to the next cycle. Now if all that is working and the machine starts agitating and the water is still coming in then the fault will be in the water inlet solenoid valve . It will have a cracked diaphragm or dirt and will have to be replaced Probably why the machine works when you bash it.

Agator not spinning


There is no belt on that unit. It is a direct drive machine. When the unit goes into the wash cycle, does the motor run but it does not agitate?

Machine keeps filling up, replace pressure switch, still nohting, keeps filling up?


Hello dwl770 - If your washer won't stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:

1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.

2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.

3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.

- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.

If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.

Matag top load washer model # LAT9604AAE filled but no agitation


If just getting the water out is your main goal, this can be accomplished using a shop vacuum.
Be sure to unplug the power cord before attempting any repair! Another way to drain a machine is to use a bucket. Put the discharge end of the drain hose from the washer into the bucket, making sure the hose end is higher than the level of the water in the washer, and slowly lower the hose and bucket until the water flows into the bucket. Raise the bucket and hose end back up above the level in the machine tub to stop the flow. Repeat until the machine is empty.
Give the machine a try after removing some of the water as you may have tripped a limit switch and the unit may just be overfilled

Washer wont agitate.


Hose must fit tight on switch and tub connection-make sure it has no defects in it. If machine fully drained then did not get to correct water level when restarted then water level switch is bad. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

WDB1043M Bendix Washer/Dryer


I had the same problem. Then I discovered that the Bendix USA WDS1043 / WDC1024 is the same, or almost the same, as a Splendide Comb-o-matic 6000. You can find an extensive parts manual at
http://www.splendide.com/service/Combo_PartsBreakDown.pdf
and an owners manual at http://www.splendide.com/manual_wdc1024m.pdf

I think Splendide is still in business, in which case they may also be able to supply parts for the Bendix WDS 1043 M - check them out at
http://www.splendide.com/

They can also supply a replacement washer/dryer combo when your present unit finally dies.

Good luck with a great washer combo!

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
