Question about Washing Machines
During cycle the agitator is suppose to agitate for 8 minutes at high speed then 6 minutes at low speed. the low speed doesn,t happen ,it just sits idle then the timer advances then goes into rince cycle any ideas????
My 8 year old Inglis 1H 4700 (could be a 1J 4700) washing machine is leaving soapy water at the bottom of the tub (1cm), the clothes remain soapy and they don't seem to be spun very dry by the end of a regular cycle. I have made sure that it is balanced as it goes through the cycles. Any thoughts or help would be great.
It appears your motor controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
