Question about Washing Machines

It filled with water and motor tries to start, working few seconds, and then trips the overload protection circuit. Then it cools off for a couple minutes and tries again and the overload trips again. I tried in different speeds / different Timer Cycles

The motor is overheating, so it could be the motor itself or the capacitor, a black cylindrical piece under the head of the machine. Replace the capacitor, as that is cheaper, if it still does it, its the motor, which may not be economically feasible to replace. It filled with water and motor tries to start, wor - 7_16_2013_10_36_04_pm.jpg

Maybe. Sounds like the motor is not agitating in the other direction??? There is a controller on this type of machine which handles the starting...direction of the motor..this is by far the most common for your description.
next would be the timer or transmission.
to check trans..grab top lip of bowl it should be locked in both directions. tilt machine back..you should be able to spin the pulley in both directions it not its the trans
I'm sorry bout the flow of this...not used to doing it like this...think i'm slowly getting better????

SOURCE: Top loading Kenmore washer runs for a few seconds then shuts off

It's quite possible, however,

If you're mechanically inclined, I'd check the motor, transmission and pump first.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers and it's trouble-shooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

See the following for how to pull the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission to check them all.

Hello,
It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.
Good luck

Direct drive whirlpool washer has electrical odor and stops.


the burn odour and stoppage an electrical fault and coupled with a 20 amp circuit breaker tripping indicates a motor fault
Capacitors are tested with an capacitance tester and not an ohm meter as ohms is a resistance and not capacitance reading
When breakers activate it indicates a massive short or current draw and the problem could be in the windings of the motor
could be water getting into the motor at times causing the intermittent problem
I would suggest that you call in a service technician or an accredited electrician to check out the machine properly

Why does my aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump work in intervals of a few seconds.it goes on for a few seconds then stops and after a few minutes it goes on again


Check for restrictions causing the pump motor to be overworked.
Motor is overheating, the the Thermal Overload Switch senses that and will trip. Once the motor cools, it will restart.

How do I fix my washing machine


If your washer was working previously please read below.
Thermal Overload Protection

Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.

When turned on you can hear a buzzzing, like electrcicity going into the pmp then pump heats up and trips its saftefy switch. Motor does not turn.


I am assuming that this is not a brand new installation. If it is, go to http://www.femyers.com and download a manual for your pump.

If the pump has worked properly in the past, what seems to be happening is that the motor is locked up and the built in thermal protection is correctly protecting the motor. Or if by "safety switch" you mean the circuit breaker is tripping, then the following still applies.

The pump impeller may be jammed with debris, or the motor bearings may be worn out, causing the rotor to jam and stop rotating. Also a possibility - the seal between the pump and the electric motor has failed, allowing water into the motor and causing a short circuit which trips the breaker.

It is probably time to call the repairman, or replace the pump. Don't keep trying to turn on the motor; it will not fix itself and you may make things worse.

Remember, these pumps must be primed with water first before first use. Look in the Operating Instructions manual.

Admiral HMG61139 21.1 cu ft Side-by side refrigerator, not cooling. clicking sound every few minutes. (sounds similar to oven thermostat or relay coming on).


Hello,

Thier is one of a couple things going on with your refrig.

The start relay on the compressor is bad so what your hearing is the overload thermostat tripping on and off and keeps trying to start the compressor

The fan motor by the compressor called the condenser fan motor is not running to cool the compressor so once and what you overload keep trying to start the compressor but its too hot to start

Finally the compressor is locked up and the overload still keeps trying to start it but its totally seazed and ain't going to run

I hope this helps you to determine what is wrong with your refrigerator,
Gene

I have a 1995 Buick Century that out of the blue last night, the dash lights, headlights, radio, and dome light quit working. Today I checked the fuses, unplugged the battery to reset the ECM, and fished...


There could be a timed circuit breaker:

Circuit Breakers The headlights are protected by a circuit breaker in the headlamp switch. If the circuit breaker trips, the headlights will either flash on and off, or stay off altogether. The circuit breaker rests automatically after the overload is removed. The windshield wipers are also protected by a circuit breaker. If the motor overheats, the circuit breaker will trip, remaining off until the motor cools or the overload is removed. One common cause of overheating is operation of the wipers in heavy snow. The circuit breakers for the power door locks and power windows are located in the fuse box.

Compressor wont start


It is probably a failed run capacitor for the compressor. Without the capacitor, the motor can't even try to run, but it will draw extreamly high amperage until it trips the thermal overload (avarage trip time 5-10sec) after it has a few second for the safety to cool off, it will try again. Either that or the compressor truly is seized

Does the fan on the outdoor condensing unit come on when the compressor does? If so, Is the condenser coil clean so that the airflow from the fan can remove heat from the condenser coil so the compressor won't overheat and trip the internal overload compressor protection circuit? If yes then is the indoor evaporator fan working properly? If yes are your filters clear and evaporator coil clear so that adequate air is flowing over the coil to prevent the compressor low pressure protection circuit from tripping? If so is the refrigerant charge on the system correct- either overcharged or undercharged can trip the compressor protection circuit. By now you should have come across an explanation for your compressor short cycling. If I had to guess I would bet on inadequate airflow over the condenser coil do to a faulty condenser fan motor either not turning at all or turning for a few minutes and then stopping when it overheats. This is likely caused by an unsealed replacment motor being used outdoors and water/rust has accumulated over the winter season and/or the capacitor is bad (in this case the motor may be turning slowly backwards) or just plain old worn out. I hope this helps get you to cold air sometime soon GL!

Overfill protection tripping


Is there water in the drip pan? My asko developed a leaky inlet solenoid, which would fill the drip pan eventually causing a failure. If the water evaporated, the washer would run. Normally, there should be no water in the drip pan.
