Check the drum for ease of rotation, bearing noise. Make sure all support springs are good and at the same position.

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.

3rlsq8033 wont start


The thermal overload (fuse) is found on the motor for this washer. It is a small black box that has 2 wires going to it. Unplug the washer before working on it. If you have a multimeter you can remove the wires going to the thermal overload and check for continuity between the two terminals of the thermal. If your meter shows an open circuit you will need to change the motor.

Honda civic 2002 overheating


Had the same problem with two cars I had. First was fixed with a radiator flush and refill, second was fixed with a new water pump and belt. I would also look at the radiator and see if there is a lot of bugs and other gunk on it. That can cause the heat not to dissipate without the speed of driving pushing air over it. Pressure washer or coin-op car wash wash high pressure sprayer can clean that off.

Electric motor keeps cutting out


There may be a thermal protector placed internally within the motor or motor-compressor to protect the motor and motor winding's components from dangerous overheating that can cause motor failure.
This overheating generally occurs when the motor is overloaded, a bearing seizes up, something locked the motor shaft from turning, or the motor simply fails to start properly. A failure to start may be caused by faulty start winding's in a motor.
The thermal protector consists of one or more heat-sensing elements integral with the motor or motor-compressor and an external control device. The thermal protection is in place to turn the motor off when excessive heat is generated within the motor circuitry and keep it from burning up the motor.
These thermal protectors are reset when the motor cools to a safe operating temperature. There is usually a visible red button located on the wiring side of the motor, opposite of the motor shaft, but not always. In some cases, these buttons are reset manually.

After spin cycle clothes r still soaking wet. cleaned coin catcher. ideas???


If the spin cycle is kicking in, then you can be pretty sure that the water has all emptied from the drain cycle, otherwise it wouldn't start the spin. So the chances are the coin catcher clean was not going to be the fix. The Highest probability is simply a case of overload. If the load is to great and the balance is thrown off as a result then it won't get up to full speed (the motor has several windings, so it slowly steps up from a slow spin, then up a step, then another, then full speed. poor loads will cause it to fail to kick in the fastest spin. Having said this, if that's not the case, then I'm afraid to say you may well have a motor, or a controller module fault. If so, it could get expensive.

To test, run the shortest cycle you can with the machine empty. It will be a lot easier to hear and see this way. Make sure that you hear the empty pump eject the water and that you then hear it runn on a little after all the wayer is gone. This will show if it IS in fact enptying completely. Presuming it is, now watch and listen as the spin kicks in. Does it reach full speed when there is no load? If it does, then check the weight of your DRY load doesn't exceed the recommended load (remember a pound over weight will be several pounds overweight once wet!). If it doesn't get up to full speed with no clothes in it, I'm afraid its time to call an engineer.

Water in washer does not drain


A couple of other possibilities exist:
1. Debris between inner and outer tubs - this may cause the tub to not turn properly, motor overloads and kicks out on the thermal overload. To correct, you have to do some major dismantling of the washer to remove the debris. This will be dependent on the brand.

2. Debris stuck in the pump - same issue as above. Thermal overload kicking out the motor. You may be able to disconnect the hose from the pump and remove the debris. Most newer pumps cannot be dismantled; you will have to replace it if you can't remove the debris.

I'm hoping your problem is in the last post - out-of-balance switch.

Keep in mind that this is one generic answer (we dont know your brand).

Good luck (remember to rate this help).

Kicks out?


the smaller belt is causing the tub to spin too quickly. the shorter belt is causing the motor to overheat and causing the thermal overload protector to shut dowqn the motor. when the motor cools it starts up again. replace the belt with te correct size and that will solve your problems
