Change rotation of a Doerr 3HP motor LR22132.

I have a Doerr 3HP motor LR22132 that rotates ccw as I look at the shaft. Is it possible to change it to cw rotation?

SOURCE: will not spin during spin portion of cycles. it

It's either a bad door switch, or motor control board. Definitely easier and cheaper to try changint he door switch first, as it fails much more often. Part number is 131763202

Oh s***! If the motor turns but the drum does not, the drive shaft has broken loose from the three arms which attach it to the drum. (the part is called the "spider") To repair, remove bolt on end of shaft at center of motor. You may have to cut it with an angle grinder, but don't worry about that, because the shaft has to be replaced anyway. Remove motor rotor and stator. Remove washer front, drain hose, fill hose, shock absorbers, support springs, all wires attached to outer drum, and eventually the entire outer drum. Remove bolts between front and back halves of outer tub to allow removal of inner drum. Remove 6 bolts holding 3 arms of spider to back of inner drum. Re-assemble with new spider and new bolt for end of shaft. If you can do it in under two hours, give yourself a big pat on the back. This is about a 8.5 on a 1 - 10 difficulty scale for washer repair. Good luck Mike.

Check the wax motor if working properly. Its shaft should extend to activate the door lock switch. Door alignment is also vital in the proper operation of the door latch mechanism. Make sure the door is closing properly and firmly. Try aligning and holding the door firmly against the machine and if it works fine, the problem is in the door alignment and closing. Closely inspect the door for disalignment.

Delta 10 inch unisaw switch hums wont start motor

All of the above are correct. However, before you go nuts with motor stuff, unplug the saw and make sure the blade shaft turns freely, If it doesn't, look for something jammed in the belt and pulley mechanisms. Loosen the drive belt and check the motor shaft rotation and the blade shaft rotation separately. If you find nothing, remove the belt and try starting the motor. If it won't start like this (no load) there is a motor problem. If it does start, find the drive mechanism problem and fix it; not many possibilities. Good luck.

Change rotation

Only if the motor is reversible will you be able to do this. If it is, you will have 4 small wires on the motor that have 1 connection each. They usually have 2 males and 2 females. Depending on how you connect them is what determines the rotation. For example:

CCW- Brown to Purple/ Purple to Brown
CW- Brown to Brown/ Purple to Purple

Hope this helps!

How to rewire dayton 2m034 to change rotation from CW to CCW.

Check and see if there is a plug with 2 wires coming out of the motor, connected through the plug to two other wires. Reversing the orientation of the plug should change the rotation.

The green should be connected to the chassis, it is ground.
There should be a wiring diagram on it to tell you how to do this, but if not:

There may be T-leads on the motor labeled
P1, P2, T3,T4,T5,T8

P1-L1(black wire)
P2-cap/tape don't use.
T2,T3, and T5 wire nut together
T4,T-8 wire nut together with L2(white)

The power leads will be coming from your switch box on the compressor body itself. Don't wire the 220v directly to the motor, you replace the leads where the first motor was connected on the cutoff switch. There will be only 2 leading from the switch to the motor.

Maytag neptune top load bearings seized in drum pulley , freed bearings and drum spins free but hard time to start turning is it possible motor trouble ?

I’m an owner not a repair person but I will pass on my FAV6800AW Clutch issue experience.

With an empty Wash Basket open the lid and with one finger (pinky) you should be able to rotate the wash basket with little rotational resistance. I’m not sure how else to describe normal Wash Basket CCW rotational resistance in the Spin direction of the system. In my eyes any more resistance than that would indicate some binding in the system. If the roller clutches were seized as you describe I would replace the clutch but lets discuss further.

How much CCW rotational resistance did you detect with the clutch out? Did you follow this post for the One-Way Roller clutch bearing clean up? In that post I discuss checking for CCW rotational resistance prior to removing the Clutch. Does your FAV6800AW use the upper Roller Clutch Bearing Ring as I show in this post? If so what condition was it in?

The Outer Tub bearings may be adding to the CCW rotational resistance (Leaking Tub Seal). You could remove the belt off the Clutch pulley the motor should spin freely by hand and I feel you will find that is not causing the increased CCW rotational resistance with the above check.

I would drop the clutch out again and check the Wash Basket CCW rotational resistance. That would give me a feel if the Outer Tub bearings are adding to the CCW rotational resistance. If the Wash Basket rotates CCW freely I would replace the clutch with the one I recommend in this post.

Post back if you have questions and maybe we can have another forum member speak to this issue. I could be over looking something in troubleshooting. Good Luck
