Sounds normal. Unloader opens because pressure is too high. Pressure goes down and unloader closes. Pressure builds and the unloader opens again Leave it running like that and the water will heat up. If you have a thermo valve it will protect you a little. One of the fastest ways to destroy your pump is to let it run for long periods without using it.

How do I change the brushes on my washing machine?

Hi Shirley

Well, If you are talking about the brushes (electrical brushes) which are inside the main drive electric motor.?
Then firstly I would check to see if this motor has brushes.
Most AC motors don't use brushes on a copper commutator.
Electric motor Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
They do however use a large external capacitor to kick start them in a particular direction and these can go bad.
AC motor Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
They often sit there & hum and can be push started. Not with the fingers or hand. A wood stick on the belt drive. But thats just to prove that it will work when the Cap is replaced.
This is better done on a work bench.
motor start capacitor
But... if you know that the motor has internal brushes you still have to take the motor out & pull the back end off to see & change the brushes.
So, either way, you will have to get access to the machine to remove the motor. While there check for a tin can attached close to the motor (the Capacitor)
Usually a job for an Electrician so be careful to disconnect from the power before opening the machine. Water & Electricity can be deadly.

Good Luck

Power comes on but will not start wash cycle justs sit there and humms

Try the steps below:

- try running it without any load to see if it still hums.
- if it does, see anything underneath the pulsating disk if there's anything stuck. (like a coin or a pin)
- if it doesn't, You can also try removing the belt between the motor and the pulsator to isolate if it's a defect in the motor or the pulsator.
After that, If the motor is defective, then you'd have to replace that or repair it if you know how to. If the pulsator is defective, check again if there's something stuck in the bushings. If you've used the washing machine for quite a long time, you may need to replace the bushings and bearings of the pulsator. You can also buy an assembly unit for the pulsator if there's one available in your area.

Hope this helps.

You need to replace the fuel filter. Also the age of the car warrants replacing the fuel pump too. If its drawing high amps the relay will fail. Straight wiring a fuel pump is a safety concern. A fire or explosion hazard exist due to arcing at fuel pump motor. Yes it is inside the fuel tank and is very old. Replace it.

The machine runs for brief periods, then shuts itself off. If it is allowed to sit for several minutes, it runs again, then shuts itself off.

the motor is heating up to much and the cut out switch is kicking in. You need to check the the motor filter, and worse case you may need to new motor..

Your motor/clutch combo is on the way out. The motor is overheating and turning off. Cools down and restarts.
You need a new motor/clutch combo or a new washer. I do not recommend another GE.
