Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The machine is only spinning for 3-5 seconds constantly and will not drain, is this a PCB problem?

I have been asked to fix after several repair men could not fix. Pump and belt look as though they have been replaced.

Why didnt the tec guys test the pcb board?



No spin, try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Hi I also have the cabrio wtw5500xw0. It flashes sensing, wash, done as the code. In normal cycle it will wash not rinse or spin. Sometimes I can get it to spin in the drain and spin cycle. Thanks


There are several ways to fix a machine that will not spin or drain:
Step 1: Perform a master reset
This is the first thing a person should try. Unplug the washing machine, and leave it this way for about 1 minute. Plug the machine back in, and close the machine door six times in 12 seconds to send a message to the computer to reset everything. It may not work on all washing machines, so consult the repair guide to see if it will work for this particular machine.
Step 2: Fix the lid switch
If the lid switch has become defective, it is necessary to remove it from the machine. Consult the machine's repair guide to see where it is located and how to take it out. See if the switch works when it is used to open and close the machine door. If it does not, the lid switch needs to be replaced.
Step 3: Check the water level control if the machine isn't spinning
Open the control panel, and look for the water level valve. If the plastic tube attached to it appears clogged, vinegar can clear it up. If the switch itself appears corroded, it may be necessary to replace it.

Indesit washing machine pumnp burnt out, replaced it but it still won't pump or spin. Does it need a new programmer or can the programmer be fixed?


You're absolutely right. If you look at the wiring diagram on the machine it is clear that the drain pump is powered by triac on PCB (part code C00270972).
I think it is definitely safer and probably cheaper to replace than to repair the PCB.
It is always a good practice to visually inspect PCBs that there are no visible defects such burnt out elements, etc. before replacing. Sometimes the reason for burnout PCB may be on a completely different side.

I have a Zanussi W/M ZWF1640 showing E34 fault codes in diagnostics mone. any clues?


Three things i would suggest on the zannuzi. Does water come into the drum at the beginning of the wash? Does the drum turn if asked to wash or spin? Does the drain motor disperse the water in the drum when supposed to. If motor does not turn, check the brushes. Sorry for being so vague, Zannuzi not common in S.Africa, but those are the common problems i have found while repairing the odd one.

Washer will fill and agitate but won't drain and spin


Tweetly, no spin, no drain, usually a sign of a broken lid switch. Also check the switch actuator on the lid. Lid switch part number 3949238. Check that out first and post back. Catriver.
