SOURCE: I have GE Madellion 870

Hello ashankhan,
huuum,happy to assist you!

You said,
I have GE Madellion 870 Washing machine
I guess I have motor problem
motor stops after smoke
Now Motor spins for few second then stops
after 15~ 20 minutes, it will run again for few seconds
if my motor burned then why it still runs for few seconds.

The motor is shot and it still works until it heats up, and then it binds up after it over heats!


How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You, let me know how it goes.

Thank You

SOURCE: GE Top load washing machine stop and stars during spin cycle

I had the same problem. The machine will do the washing cycle. At the start of the spin cycle it would start turning with a lot of clicking sounds and then would stop spinning. The water pump would continue working without problem. The motor tries to start again in about three minutes, however, repeats the same behavior. I have a reasonable mechanical and electrical knowledge. I was sure that the overload protection switch of the motor was tripping. I opened up my machine---a GE super capacity top loading machine. Took off the belt and turned the transmission pulley. It turned easily in both directions (washing and spinning). Hence, the transmission was good. Next, I checked any water accumulation in the spin tub. If the water is not drained properly before the spin cycle, it would overload the motor. There was no water clogged in the spin tub. Finally, I dismantled the electric motor. There was a clutch assembly underneath the motor pulley. I dismantled it and found the clutch very dirty with some grease that had turned sticky. I cleaned the assembly thoroughly with alcohol and assembled back the machine. The machine is running perfect after that. Conclusion: The clutch assembly was mis-functioning. Reason: When the spin cycle starts, the spin tub is very heavy and cannot achieve the full speed quickly. On the other hand, electric motors must get to their running speed fairly quickly or else overheating of motor would happen. A proper functioning clutch allows the motor to run at their optimal speed while transferring enough torque to the spin tub to slowly speed up the tub to its fullest. In my case, the clutch was sticky, thus overloading the motor which would trip as it overheats.

SOURCE: bosch 1200 classic express washing machine wont spin

Providing the machine isn't requiring major breakdown repair, the problem should be solved by emptying the machine and cleaning the drain pump. If this is obstructed the maching won't drain or spin as any bits left in clothes (paper clips, coins, nails, screws etc) wedge themselves into the (what I call a fly wheel) the pump impeller wheel at the back. If the fly wheel can't rotate the machine cannot pump or spin.

So.........turn off the washing machine before you fiddle about with it. Then, at the bottom right-hand side at the front of the machine there's a drop down door. Take this down and take it off. Then, lower the drain hose from its holder and pull the hose out of its housing. Be very careful if you're doing this while you have very hot water in the machine. To be safe, let the water cool before starting. Next take off the closing cap from the hose and empty the water from the machine. There are times when the water doesn't empty by this method so carefully open the door to the machine and bale it out. If the water does come out via the hose, have a suitably sized bucket at the ready as up to 20litres can be drained. Once you've done this, put back the closing cap of the drain hose and returned the drain hose to its holder, unscrew (anti clockwise) the petrol tank cap look-a-like placing a towel underneath as a little residual water will flow out. The pump impeller (fly wheel) must be able to rotate so clean out any residual fluff from the thread of the pump cap and pump housing before returning the pump cover and screwing tightly on. Put back the drop down flap and, hopefully, away you'll go again.

Hope this is of some help.

The E41 error means the control thinks the door is open. From your description of the problem the most likely problem here is a bad door switch assembly.

Aquabot T4 RC, Pump runs for 1 second then shuts off for 4 seconds, then repeats its self.


Mine does this too some times. I find that if i manually force the wheels (out of water) to turn slightly and then put it back in the water it works again for a bit. I think something is jamming it but can not find out what the issue is. Let me know if you solve it!

Aquabot Bravo runs great in one direction but not the other


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Either the belt responsible for that direction or the idler pulley and/or wheel teeth are damaged. The only other possibility would be the drive motor itself is near failure. Try running it briefly upside-down on the deck to inspect the drive components in action to determine which is the problem.

Ld code on Bravo washer what does it mean


The "LD" code or "long drain" indicates a pump/drain related issue. Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure the impeller has no broken/missing blades and that it spins freely. If any blades are missing/broken or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
