Question about Splendide 2000S Vented Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

Splendide 2000, 1999 vintage, noise on dryer cycle.

I opened up the top and found a small motor like device on the right side with a grey plastic fin cap vibrating and rattling severely. What is that device and what has happened, how to fix it? Should I try to spray lube it? Doesn't look like it can be removed in place but don't know for sure.

Thanks. Tony

That sounds like the dryer motor and if it is doing what you say, my guess would be the motor is bad - sounds like a bad bearing or something. Check out the technical info here.

Without having seen the motor, it sounds like the piece might have something to do with cooling since it has a fin, and the plastic hub has worn down to the point of the shaking you mention. I would look at a parts layout and see if the cooling fan/fins are avvaileable without purchase of the motor and replace that piece only.
I am not a washer dryer guy, but it's something to think about.

The spin cycle will not spin. I hear a slight humming noise and then it will start to click through the cycles without stopping


I believe the motor coupler needs replacing -- it's the part connecting the motor shaft to the transmission / drive. Fairly easy for an accomplished handyperson to repair. The part costs around $20.

More info, let me know.

Machine will not drain, and the door will not open .....we opened the drain in the front and drained off the water and now it is trying to spin, Before it just kept washing no matter which cycle or stage...


The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. The motor coupler may be broken.It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This are possibilities to be checked.Thanks.

Splendide 2100 washer/dryer now fails to dry -


Remove the top - two screws in the back then slide forward
In the front right top you will see the air box and the terminals for the heater coil along with other wires and sensors. Start the washer on a dry cycle and check the voltage to the heater terminals. You will be looking for 120 AC. If voltage there but no heat the heating element is bad. If no voltage there follow the wires to the overheat switches and check the voltage on the other side of these switches (round devices with two terminals on top). If there is voltage there then the switch has tripped. Unplug the machine. Look for a spot of paint on this switch, scratch it away and you will see a small hole. Insert a strightened paper clip into this hole and push to reset the switch. Re-power and test the results.
No power to these switches probably means a bad circuit board $$$.

Noise in the spin cycle


The noise was indeed coming from the water pump. To clean the pump on this top-loader you have to unplug it, pop the top open, and remove the front face of the cabinet to expose the motor and pump. Slip off the two metal clips hugging the pump to the motor. Place a towel under the motor before detaching the hoses - there's a plastic drip pan between the pump and motor to guide the water away from the motor. Unclamp the two hoses from the pump by squeezing their spring-clamps with pliers and sliding them further down the hose. Pull the hoses off by lifting the pump off its axle and pulling it out while wiggling the hoses loose. I found a small sock jammed in the pump - it must have fallen to the outside of the basket but inside the drum during the last spin cycle, and went down the drain hose. Check the pump for damage and replace if necessary. For future troubleshooting, remember that a clogged pump causes squealing, diminished spin speed, and slow drainage.

Splendide 2100 no longer dries clothes


We had the same problem with our splendide 2100 top loader. If you remove the top cover, you will find 2 circular like black discs (the size of a dime) on the right hand side about 6 inches from the front. You need to push those down (with a very small blunt object) to reset them. Please make sure that you unplug your washer/dryer before you attempt this. Good luck.

Washer doesn't agitate


sounds like your washer went mellow on you(doesn't get agitated, right)?

ok. enough humor.

sounds like there's a problem with the motor/belt/control board in that order
