Possible that when the drum spins out of control the excess load on the motor trips the system/control board and so it takes time to reset. So what is needed is to check the suspension of the drum, the floor setting of the machine to be leveled so that it will not spin out of control.Also the load on the machine particularly with thick blankets must be rolled and evenly distributed.I must confess that the presence of any limit switch to trip must be checked as I am unaware.
Hi, Your timer motor burnt out, or timer faulty, remove top back panel (back of timer) and check timer motor, if timer motor are built-in (electronic type) you'll have to replace timer, or if timer motor can be remove, replace it, check back of timer, (knob you turn to change cycles or programs) locate timer motor, you can check appliance store to purchase timer motor, or let mechanic check, surely it's your timer motor or timer, check let me know,
i have no idea what make/model this is regarding but if it is a whirlpool, roper, or inglis then it is most likely a motor coupling that is broken it goes between the motor and the transmission let me know how you make out
Does this happen every time or once in a while? If it happens everytime, I would guess there is a shorted spot in the timer. If you can put it into the spin cycle manually, then the motor is not shorted. It will be hard to diagnose it from long distance, but if it is tripping the house breaker it has a dead short somewhere. If it only happens sometimes, check to see what else is on the circuit that might be running at the same time. It pulls the most amps when it goes into spin, spiking around 16-20 amps. If you have other things running on a 20 or 30 amp breaker it could just be the curcuit is overloaded at that point or the breaker is weak. If we can narrow it down to the timer, it is a pretty simple repair, but some of the timers are pretty expensive. Post back with the exact model number if you need more help.
