More on Celebrity X motor overheating. Brushes look good. Brake does not seem to be dragging, Batteries are about 5 years old but hold a good charge when not in use for months,


If the motor is overheating, it is drawing far more current out of
the batteries than it is supposed to. Assuming it is 2 x 13v x 33ah
batteries, these are good for about 2 to 3 years on my scooter and 'wheelchair. AGM (absorbent glass mat) lead acid batteries do deteriorate over time due to battery chemistry.

Although the batteries may appear to take a charge
and the voltage 12.6volt x 2 = 25.2 volts nominal, with no load
on them, the motor controller takes a whack of current to get you going.

I have an digital voltmeter/ammeter installed on my Pride XL scooter and I was amazed how much current the motor/motor controller takes from the batteries. 50 to 80amps on startup.

If the battery voltage drops due to the age of the batteries, as the
energy is being used up from them, the current required by the
motor for rotation has to go up, and that will cause overheating of the controller and the motor. It is Ohms law plain and simple
the less voltage available-the more current required to do the
work and current creates the heating effect.

I replace my batteries every two years. Can't take a chance on
being stuck with discharged batteries.

Maytag front loading washing machine fails to spin enough to wring the water out of the items being washed. Machine is 12 years old.


The reduction of the spin RPM can be due to many reasons and it seems more likely related to the section of the motor and motor drives.
So check manually for free movement of the drum and motor, check the drive and the movement.
Check the motor RPM, if capacitor type check or use one in parallel to confirm if the speed picks up.
Finally check the motor, if heating up then the bushes/bearings can be worn out and so reduce in efficiency.

Error Code SH


SR = Stuck Relay.

"Sr" signifies a failure of the relay in the closed position. With this failure, power to the motor controller cannot be turned off by the machine controller.
The machine control board may have a bad relay and may need to be replaced. Check pins 1 and 5 of P16 of the machine controller and pins 1 and 2 of P1 of the motor controller. This should have AC line voltage when the motor controller is powered.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

You possibly have something stuck in the sump of your motor that is banging against the macerator. Have you broken a glass lately?

I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and...


I have recently had the same problem with the same model. Do you think there's a connection? I'm going to report this to Consumer Reports.

Frequent interruptions of washer


This is most likely the brushes on the motor. Intermittently failing due to wear and tear. I *could* be the motor but the brushes are very cheap in comparison.

On most washers the brushes are < £20. Time to fit is less than 0.5 hours.

You have three options

1/ If you are or know someone who is very technical and confident - once you have the right parts should be able to install them. (Unlplug the unit before touching!!!)

2/ If you have a service contract use it, they should provide parts and fix.
3/ A service engineer is your last option - say £90 callout + parts. (On certain washer units parts are free up to five years old - but you have to pay the call out fee)

Please dont forget to rate me, thanks!!
