Did it over heat? = YES
Is there an over load switch? = Should be, but still may not protect pump.
Is pump BAD? = ?, is it still running? if yes - keep using till dies.

Condensor fan goes on low speed on hot days resulting in poor cooling, some days works fine, i checked pressures on days it was working normal.

Does it have a Motormaster feature? Motormaster controls condensor motor speed to control high pressure. A condensor thermal sensor signals the control board, don't forget to test the thermistor, stick it in ice and hot water and look for a speed reaction.
Heat pumps have a relay that switches the outdoor fan to low speed on Heat mode, this relay or its signal may need some checking.

This sounds like a heat sensor in the motor. If when it runs you can hold your hand on top of the motor the sensor may have gone bad. This is a quarter sized black disc about 1\2 inch thick in the back of the motor. Two or three wires and easy to replace. If the motor is getting hot then it's in the windings and your motor is short for this world.

Dishwasher is not cleaning dishes. Food is left on the dishes at the end of the cycle. Also, when dishwasher is emptying it's water, it gets very loud.


If you are observing that the dishes are not clean, then you’ll need to follow certain steps to be sure where exactly the issue. First thing to check for is the detergent cup and spray arms. Check if the dishwasher’s spray arms are working fine and all the holes of the arms are clear. Now try using a different detergent like gel or liquid based detergent to see if it helps.

Dishes are left unclean when the dishwasher is not filling in properly or when the water pressure is low. Check for water pressure and water inlet valve. The water inlet valve if faulty will draw very little or no water. However, if you observe that water pressure is fine and there is no issue with the Fill valve then check whether the dishwasher is draining. If it’s not draining then see if the drain hose is plugged or clogged. If drain hose is fine and the dishwasher is still not draining then there is some issue with the drain pump or drain filter. To check this you’ll need to disassemble the dishwasher and trace back the drain hose to a pump, remove the drain hose from pump and clean the debris from the pump and filter. Make sure you have lots of towels as there would be a lot of water coming out from the pump.
Next thing to check if the dishwasher is draining and filling properly is water temperature. Water temperature should be between 120 and 140 F. If water is not hot enough then heating element has gone bad, to check the element you’ll need a multimeter. Use the multimeter and check if the Rx1 reading on the meter shows reading between 1200 (1.2K) ohms and 1500 (1.5K) ohms, if not the heating element has died. Please post back if more information is required.

Pump was working fine but now only makes a humming sound.

First, Yes you need to turn off the pump when switching from filter to backwash. And Yes again get a heavy guage cord so you don't burn out the windings in the motor. The thermal will usually stop the motor from catching fire after the damage is done.
Now your problem; Water can be put under pressure but you can't compress it. Air on the other hand you can compress. If you had any air in the tank and didn't get it out while switching from filter to backwash. When you shut the pump off that air will expand at a rapid rate and rush back through the sustem. This will cause the impellor to spin off the shaft inside the pump and bind up. If you take the pump apart and look this could be your problem.More often than not your threads on the impellor will be runed so yopu probally need a new one and a new seal but cheaper than a new motor. If you take it to a pool store they can do this for you for a small charge or just the price of parts. While you have it there have them check to see if you can get a left hand thread impellor screw to lock the impellor on so this won't happen again. Most motor shafts are already drilled and tapped for this. The left hand thread can't spin off and will keep the impellor in place. Also be careful not to **** air when draining water from pool.Good luck.

this sounds like a supply power problem. The motor is not getting enough power. Check the line to see how many amps you're getting. The motor will tell you how many amps you need on the data plate. When a motor heats up and trips it's internal high limit, it's usually due to insufficient supply power. Heat is a byproduct of inefficiency. Also, if this is running on 220v, make sure both legs of 110 have power. Sometimes motors can attempt to run even though half the volts are missing.

if hot or both cold and hot fill try to switch the pipes
if not filling it may be a problem with program and or filter blocked
check also the pump
did you check the water is on as sometimes people forget to swith it on
if the motor has carbons as in the washing machine and if they are worn the water will not fill or better the motor is not going to turn and will not pump in water
as it is possible the pump may not work
this will make a sound like emptiness and with air in it
