Question about Washing Machines
My motor hums on my Maytag LAT8816AAE toploading washing machine, usually just on the spin cycle. Once it starts, then it will do it on all cycles. I let it sit a while then it usually works again.
Hi, this is gil1714 in Scotland. Motor not starting properly, and humming. this machine has an induction
motor which has a starter capacitor on the side(the cylinder shaped object). these age out, so try replacing
with one of the same rating (printed on it ??mu). if that doesn't solve the problem, check to see if anything
is partially jamming the drum, or if the machine is overloaded . the other possibility is that the coils in the
motor are starting to fail, which would entail replacing the complete motor. hope this is useful gil.
