Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I replaced the timer on my Simpson Genesis 511. It runs well, but during the wash cycle it doesn't oscillate, and very occasionally, after poking around, it does. What is my problem? The motot is fine as it spins fine.

This is a fault that resides within the motor control board. you will need to replace this failed module asap if possible. it has failed.

SOURCE: Simpson Esprit 750 washing machine timer?

Hi! My Simpson Esprit 750 washing machine won't click over to the next stage in the cycle. All of the stages work if you turn the dial manually so I am wondering if it may be the timer that needs replacing? I can't hear it in operation. Thanks.

SOURCE: how to repair the bearings

Hi

Please check the bellow link related to drum bearings:-

http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/diy-repair-help_2.html#cl_q4

Also follow the easy steps:-

1) Disconnect from the power, water etc. and find some space;
2) Remove the lid (two screws at back of machine) and the back panel. I also took off the concrete weight on top to give myself some more room and less weight to move;
3) Remove the fan belt;
4) Unscrew the bolt on the end of the drive shaft. This holds the pulley in place;
5) The pulley is pushed on to a V-bushing. It may be very hard to get off. The easiest way was to put a large screwdriver behind the pulley hub and the 'spider' bracket behind. Then use leverage to pop it off. The V-bushing should then slide off the shaft;
6) Remove the three bolts that hold the ends of the spider to the drum. I found these very hard to get moving and they are also awkwardly placed. Use a socket set and you may need a bit of rust-remover/degreaser.

7) Remove the three bolts holding the central part of the spider to the drum;
8) Tap the end of the drive shaft with a hammer while pulling on the spider. The whole spider and the bearings should slide off the shaft;
9) The spider holds two bearings (one next to the drum and one next to the pulley). I'd recommend replacing both. Apparently in most cases it is the bearing closest to the drum that gets damaged usually due to water leaking through the drive-shaft seal. The two bearings are different in sizes. When ordering replacements, I'd recommend rubber sealed 'RS' bearings. There is also a shaft seal that sits between the larger bearing and the tub. The seal comes from Simpson ($25). The bearing can be bought from any bearing supply company and are about half the cost of the 'official' bearings, and probably better quality.

10) Knock out the old bearings. The correct way to do this is with bearing pullers etc, but I used a long steel rod (one of the transports locking rods that new machine's come with) and a hammer (not even rubber). First knock out the large bearing and the drive shaft seal by inserting the rod through from the other bearing side and hit firmly while alternating the position of the force around the case of the bearing. I propped the spider against a brick to ensure the bearing and seal could pop out freely. Now turn around and repeat for the other bearing;
11) Clean up the spider and shaft, ensuring you remove any rust and debris;
12) Tap the new bearings into place. Again I used a hammer and firm tapping around the ring of the bearing;
13) Tap in the new drive shaft seal;
14) Reassemble.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Simpson Ezi Sensor Front Loader keeps pausing during washes, doesn't put through the detergent.


you might be putting the detergent in the wrong part of the dispenser,or you might have the hose on the wrong way,or the water valve has failed. Read up on your user manual to see what happens on this part of the cycle,does the w/m empty ,then try and bring in more water?? The main give away to this fault is,detergent still in the dispenser.Check all your filters on your inlet hose and water valves.
You have to ask yourself what has changed,cheers.

Timer turns off during cycle


Yes. The timer needs replaced. Either the motor inside is getting too weak to turn, or the gears are stripping out on it.
