Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

My LG WD-8015C front load washing machine fills with water but then nothing happens. it doesnt matter which cycle wash, spin etc does the same thing all the time. Have cleared the outlet and that is working fine. the only cycle that works is PUMP which gets rid of the wayter ok. The drum motor is not even trying to start and its completely free under hand rotation ie not seized or anything. Any suggestions welcome

Heater element? Brake motor? Dont exist on this machine! Obviously some people commenting are not familiar with this machine, I am not stirring but rather correcting misinformation which people just find confusing.
I have the same issue with my machine and do not have the answer but I know there is no heater element or brake motor on this machine, my brushes are in great condition, its a belt drive and belt is not broken, motor is fine.
I can hear a relay click when it tries to rotate the drum but nothing happens, I inspected the control panel and found a relay that looks like it got very hot and melted to a resistor thingy next to it. I believe this is the cause of the problem but a new control panel will cost around $200, more than the machine is worth, hope this helps.
P.S. I bought a new machine.

SOURCE: simpson enduro 701 washing machine

you have a faulty brake motor. It pulls in and releases the brake. When pulled right it it contacts a switch which lets the other actions like washing and spinning to occur. $77 to $86 off ebay or appliance stores. turn off ac. remove back off machine. reach around left side of frame at the bottom of the tub and push the brake forward manually and let the little plastic retainer turn sideways and release the wire rope retainer that comes out of the brake motor. remove the power cable to the brake motor by pulling out the connector on the right side under the tub. remove the two 8mm screws retaining the brake motor and remove the brake motor. reverse procedure with new item.
enjoy uninterrupted washes!

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

LG Intellowasher 7kg wd-8015c leak


Most of the time it is the door seal, open the door and check all the way round. check the sump hose and pump, sometimes it can leak from the soap draw hose to the outer tub, but not in your case I think. In most cases this can be fixed easy and is the door seal. to find out if it is coming from the front or the back, just place some news paper on the floor under the machine and take a look to see if it is the front or the back. a door seal is about 15/25 pounds retail

This link (below) to LG website will get you there, once loaded, click "Support" on the right hand side tab, then on the right side again, you will see "documents" this will get your manual etc, you will however, need to install Adobe Reader if you don't have it already, this is fairly straight forward though. I hope this helps.

Asko 10505 runs through was cycle in approx. 30 seconds, then wont drain. Simply stops. It doesnt matter which cycle I start with, the dial moves quickly to stop. It fill with water and spins. ANY HELP...


hi sir' start the wash machine empty and see if it happens when nothing is in it.
2. When machine is off, open the top grab the centerpiece inside the wash machine and pull and push it slowly, does it move? (For safety unplug the machine)
3. Make sure machine is 100% level (front to back, left to right)

The most common thing is bad drum bearing, which force the wash machine out of whack when in spin / wash. Which are common and the best thing is to call Maytag. 

thank u .........................................please rate
