Jacuzzi tub clicks but won't cycle. Pump motors checked out ok. Next??

Have had this unit for 6 years without issue. Stopped cycling so I checked voltage throughout. 230 / 50amp GFI is good. Pulled motors and sent to professional where they bench tested OK. Reinstalled them, filled unit, attempted to start. Digital temp reads fine, lights come on as they should... but when the switch is pressed the unit only clicks but does not start cycling. High and low single speed pumps - is there a capacitor I should replace? I'm stumped ...

SOURCE: Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again

you have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped

SOURCE: MY JACUZZI HOT TUB STOPPED HEATING

sounds like it could be either the heating element, the thermostat or pressure switch problem. Does the light come on when it is trying to heat? if it doesn't come on then most likely the heating element needs to be changed.

Hi canchild,
By your description this sounds as though the machine control board has failed. But you should test it first.
Go to Home Depot or Lowe's and pick up a non-contact voltage tester, like this one. It's a tool that you'll use more often than you think for this project and others around the home,

WARNING---> THESE TESTS REQUIRE YOU TO HAVE POWER ON! AVOID ANY EXPOSED WIRING OR ELECTRICAL TERMINALS THROUGHOUT THE TEST PHASE!!!

Now remove the 4 screws holding the kick panel to access the lower section of your dishwasher. Set the dishwasher to run a normal load and start it.
The sequence is the washer will send power to the water valve first, test this with your new tool... it should light up if the tub is empty. If it's already full, power will not be applied to the valve. When the tub is full, the board will send power to the main wash motor in about 1-2 minutes. Use your Voltstick on the main motor harness. If the board is good, your stick will light up.
Now hit "Cancel"... this should activate the drain pump (it's on the right, connected to the pump sump and has 2 wires feeding it). Again, test with the Voltstick.

NOTE---> Your Voltstick may give you false positives... avoid this by singling out individual wires to test. DON'T TEST "WIRE BUNDLES".

These tests will confirm whether or not the board is sending power to the components in question. If you have power? The components have failed OR the wiring to the components have become loose, broken or disconnected.
If you aren't getting power to the components, your board has failed and will need a replacement. The part number for it is 9743448 and lists for about $160.

Hope this helps!

I have a Jacuzzi J340 Hot Tub. I am having trouble with the heating. When the pump is on, the water circulates just fine. once the heater kicks on, it runs for about 10 seconds, then clicks to OH, and...


make sure the heating element isnt touching the casing inside the heating tube. if its an indoor tub, make sure the filtration cycles are not set to constant. constant filter cycles on an indoor tub will generate residual heat from the circ pump running 24/7, causing tub to heat past 104 degrees

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


Hello

your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.

Pump

The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.

Clogs

Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

Why is my frigidaire washer not spinning?


  1. Stopped Mid-cycle
    • If your Frigidaire washing machine started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer.
    Pump
    • The pump's sole responsibility is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this component.
    Lid
    • Check the door latch assembly if the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not, the washer won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
    Additional Concerns
    • Never over- or under-load your washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken components or are defective.

My washer is constantly showing 5d. What does that mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--



1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

Keep giving it a few kicks! When that happens to motors it usually means that it is on its way out, I'd milk it for as long as possible but start thinking about a new pump and motor.

sounds like it could be the transmission. Does the tub turn when you turn the pulley in either direction with your hand? And take the belt off see if the motor turns when you close the lid and turn it on without the belt??

GE Top load washing machine stop and stars during spin cycle


I had the same problem. The machine will do the washing cycle. At the start of the spin cycle it would start turning with a lot of clicking sounds and then would stop spinning. The water pump would continue working without problem. The motor tries to start again in about three minutes, however, repeats the same behavior. I have a reasonable mechanical and electrical knowledge. I was sure that the overload protection switch of the motor was tripping. I opened up my machine---a GE super capacity top loading machine. Took off the belt and turned the transmission pulley. It turned easily in both directions (washing and spinning). Hence, the transmission was good. Next, I checked any water accumulation in the spin tub. If the water is not drained properly before the spin cycle, it would overload the motor. There was no water clogged in the spin tub. Finally, I dismantled the electric motor. There was a clutch assembly underneath the motor pulley. I dismantled it and found the clutch very dirty with some grease that had turned sticky. I cleaned the assembly thoroughly with alcohol and assembled back the machine. The machine is running perfect after that. Conclusion: The clutch assembly was mis-functioning. Reason: When the spin cycle starts, the spin tub is very heavy and cannot achieve the full speed quickly. On the other hand, electric motors must get to their running speed fairly quickly or else overheating of motor would happen. A proper functioning clutch allows the motor to run at their optimal speed while transferring enough torque to the spin tub to slowly speed up the tub to its fullest. In my case, the clutch was sticky, thus overloading the motor which would trip as it overheats.
