Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I am trying to restore my daughter's Zanussi washing machine, and am puzzled by the connections to the recirculation pump.

Continued. A blue wire from the pump goes to a 3 pin wire socket also containing terminations to the main motor and J1-10 of the main electronic board. The socket is shown blacked out on the wiring diagram and there is no connection between the three sockets. What device fits in here to provide an electrical circuit to power the recirculation pump? Zanussi FJDR 1666W, I have a circuit diagram if it would help; but do not see how to paste it.

Hi, Peter and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Fuel tank empty
10. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
11. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
12. Failed fuel pump.

Tip

Whirlpool Dryer Various Test Procedures - Part 1


TEST #1 Supply Connections
This test should only be done after confirming proper voltage at the outlet.
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Remove the cover plate from the back of the dryer.
3. Check that the power cord is firmly connected to the dryer’s wire harness.
4. Access the machine control electronics without disconnecting any wiring to the control board.
5. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between the neutral (N) terminal of the plug and P8-3 (white wire) on the machine control board. If there is continuity, go to step 6. If there is no continuity, disconnect the white wire of the harness from the power cord. Test the continuity of the power cord neutral wire . If an open circuit is found,
replace the power cord. Otherwise, go to step 6.
6. In a similar way, check the continuity between the L1 terminal of the plug and P9- 2 (black wire) on the control board. If there is continuity, go to step 8. If there is no continuity, check the continuity of the power cord for power cord’s L1 wire. If an open circuit is found, replace the power cord. Otherwise, go to step 7.
7. Replace the main harness.
8. Visually check that the P5 connector is inserted all the way into the machine control electronics.
9. Visually check that the user interface assembly is properly inserted into the front console.
10. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface assembly.
11. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
12. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.
13. If indicators still do not light, the machine control electronics has failed: Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
Replace the machine control electronics. Plug in dryer or reconnect power. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.

TEST #2 Machine Control Power Check
This test is used to determine if power is present at the machine control electronics.
NOTE: The drum light is controlled by the machine control on all models.
1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
2. Open the door.If the drum light illuminates, then power is present at the machine control, and it is functional. Go to TEST #6. If the drum light fails to illuminate, do not assume the machine control electronics needs replacement. Several conditions may cause the drum light not to illuminate, including a bad bulb. If the drum light does not illuminate, go to TEST #1.

TEST #3 Drive Motor Circuit
This test will check the wiring to the motor and the motor itself. The following items are part of this motor system:
Harness/connection Belt/belt switch Drive motor Centrifugal switch Door switch Machine control electronics
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Access the machine control electronics and measure the resistance across P8-4 and P9-1.
If resistance across P8-4 and P9-1 is in the range of 1 to 6 ohms, replace the machine control electronics.
Otherwise, go to step 3.
3. Check the wiring and components in the path between these measurement points by referring to the appropriate wiring diagram and strip circuit in Section 7.
4. Check the belt switch and drive motor. Access the belt switch and drive motor by removing the front panel/drum assembly. Slowly remove the drum belt from the spring-loaded belt switch tension pulley, gently letting the belt pulley down.
5. Remove the white connector from the drive motor switch.
6. Check for the resistance values of the motor’s Main and Start winding coils. NOTE: Main and Start winding coils must be checked at the motor.WINDING RESISTANCE ω CONTACT POINTS OF MEASUREMENT
MAIN 1.4–2.6 Blue wire in back at pin 4 and bare copper wire on pin 5 of black drive motor switch
START 1.4–2.8 Blue wire in back at pin 4 and bare copper wire on pin 3 of black drive motor switch. If the resistance at the motor is correct, there is an open circuit between the motor and machine control electronics.
Check for failed belt switch. If the Start winding resistance is much greater than 4 ohms, replace the motor.
7. Check the belt switch by measuring resistance between the two blue wires while pushing up the belt switch tension pulley.If the resistance reading goes from infinity to a few ohms as pulley arm closes the switch, belt switch is OK. If not, replace the belt switch. If belt switch is OK and there is still an open circuit, check and repair the wiring harness.
8. Door switch problems can be uncovered in the Door Switch Diagnostic Test; however, if this was not done, the following can be done without applying power to the dryer. Connect an ohmmeter across P8-3 (neutral, white wire) and P8-4 (door, tan wire).With the door properly closed, the ohmmeter should indicate a closed circuit
(0–2 ohms). If not, replace the door switch assembly.

No power acer s280


Yes. A few.

1) Sometimes we inadvertently bump wires loose, when we are replacing hardware.

The Front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front panel header.

Two of these twisted pair of wires are for the Power On switch.
Are they connected tightly to the pins in the Front Panel header?

2) There is a main power wire that comes from the Power Supply, and plugs into the motherboard.

http://www.the620guy.com/images/ebay/2011-11-21/Acer%20AcerPower%20S280%20CelD%203-06GHz%203.JPG

(You can click on the photo to enlarge)

The Black long connector at the top is for a Floppy Drive.
Under it the Blue long connector is for the Harddrive.
Under it is the White long connector for optical drive/s
(CD/DVD drive)

(I may have the blue connector, and black connector, functions reversed. Blue IS supposed to be for the harddrive, usually)

To the left of them, is the whitish long 20-pin ATX main power connector on the motherboard, (20 socket holes), that the 20-pin ATX main power cable plugs into.

General example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

In the middle photo observe the whitish connector. Looking close observe the Lock on the side.
Viewing the photo to the left, observe the Tab on the motherboard connector.

When the hooked end of the Lock is over the tab, on the motherboard connector, the power cable is plugged in properly.
Is the 20-pin ATX main power cable plugged in correctly?

Everything is chilly?

3) Then it's time to bypass the Power On switch, and see if the problem is the switch, or the Power Supply.
Yes, a Power Supply can go t1ts up all at once.

Bypassing the Power On switch, has nothing directly to do with the switch. No insulation of wires is cut.

Also..........
Your Power Supply converts AC electricity from your home, or business, into LOW DC voltages. The shock hazard is contained inside the metal case of the Power Supply.
You will be dealing with 5 Volts DC.

In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.

A jumper wire goes down into the BACK, of the 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector.
Plugged in just like the photo to the far right in the Playtool link.
Power Supply plugged into power.

Goes down into the socket hole, RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire, already in the socket hole.
Right next to the insulation of the wire, and down in the socket hole far enough, that the jumper wire touches a metal terminal.

All the wires going down into the power cable's connector, end in a metal female terminal,

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

You are seeing the tips of the female metal terminals, in the middle photo of the Playtool link. (In the Molex link above, the tube shaped end to the right, is what you are seeing the tip of)

The jumper wire will be touching the crimped side of the metal terminal, as shown to the left in the Molex link. (Terminal is shown un-crimped)

Make SURE the jumper wire touches the metal terminal.

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip, and bent into a U-shape. The top of the U, is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape. This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

U-shaped jumper wire upside down, it has two 'legs'.
It is these 'legs' that go down into the socket holes.

Observe the photo to the far right, in the Playtool link.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.
One leg of the jumper wire goes down into the socket hole, with this Green wire.

The other leg of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole, that has a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

The contact made is no more than 2 seconds.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)

IF, the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch,

IF, the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

I triger power switch but dose not work mother board


Check to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
Bypass the Power On switch.

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/GC-LE/P4DL6.cfm

[For the motherboard user manual;
Go to the heading, to the upper right in blue - Links and Resources.
{Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. Let's try & }

In the list below it click on - Motherboard Manual
Click on the blue - [ Download ] for the second file listed.
MNL - 0660 (English)
P4DL6 / P4DLR / P4DLR+ ]


The SuperMicro P4DL6 motherboard can use a 20-pin ATX main power cable, OR a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Suggest you use a Power Supply, that has a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
Why?
A 20-pin ATX main power cable, does NOT provide enough power to the motherboard.

General example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

[NOTE*
Color of the connectors does NOT matter ]

General example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Note the additional power wires.
3.3 Volts (Orange), 5 Volts (Red) { 2 of them }, and a Ground wire. (Black)

Which type of ATX main power cable are you using? Don't know. You haven't stated it.

For both,....look at the Green wire. This is the Soft Power On wire.
(Abbreviated as PS_ON)
A jumper wire is used to jump from the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Go to the link with the 24-pin ATX main power cable, in it.
Look at the photo to the far right. See the Green wire?
See all the Black wires?

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip, straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. The middle of the U is wrapped a few times, with black plastic electrical tape. This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U over. Taped middle is up. There are now two 'legs'.
These legs go down into the socket holes, of the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

One 'leg' down into the socket hole of the Green wire, the other 'leg' down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.
The 'leg' of the jumper wire, goes down RIGHT NEXT TO the wire already in the socket hole.

The 'leg' has to go down into the socket hole, (Next to the wire already in the socket hole), pretty far.
It has to go past the insulation of the wire, and touch a metal terminal, that is on the end of the wire.

Look at the middle photo. Here you can see the metal terminals, in the socket holes.

Again, Power Supply plugged into power. ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, just like the photo to the far right.
The jumper wire makes a contact of no more than 2 seconds.

(Stick the jumper wire down in the socket holes, no more than 2 seconds, then pull it out.
The ATX power on switch is a Momentary Contact Switch )

Power supply comes on? You have a bad Power On switch,

Power supply does NOT come on? You have a bad Power Supply.

My motherboard is getting power from a 450w smps coz the board LED gets on when I switch on the ups. But pressing the power button on the cabinet does not switch on the system. Please help!!!!


From your diagnoses you may have a bad Power On switch, or a bad Power Supply.

Reasoning?

An ATX power on switch is connected to the motherboard's Front Panel header.
From there the circuit is continued through the ATX main power cable, and into the Power Supply.

The Power On switch connects the Soft Power On wire, to Ground.
(The Soft Power On wire is abbreviated as PS_ON. The wire is Green)


If the Power On switch is bad the Power Supply will not turn on.


A bad Power Supply will have a weak voltage power rail, (Or more than one)
Enough power to light LED lights, and perhaps spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.
No Processor operating, no computer.

1) If all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.
(Older Intel Pentium III's, and comparative AMD processors used less than 51 Watts)

You may have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough to spin fans, or turn the Processor on.


There is a simple test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
Bypass the Power On switch.

A jumper wire is used to temporarily connect the Soft Power On wire to ANY Ground wire.
The connection is made at the Back of the ATX main power cable's connector, with the ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and computer plugged into power.

1) The Asus M2N-MX (And SE version) motherboard uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2/M2NMX_SE_Plus/

This is one example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Looking at the photo to the far right, shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard.
This is the position for the test.
(Computer also plugged into power)

The BACK of the connector is where the wires go into the connector.
The jumper wire is used on the Back side of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
(Soft Power On wire)
The other end of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

The jumper wire goes down into the socket hole RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire.
The jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole far enough to touch a metal terminal.

At the end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable's connector, is a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is pretty far down in the socket hole.

The preferred jumper wire used is a paper clip.
The paper clip's diameter is small enough, to go right next to the existing wire in the socket hole, and touch the metal terminal.

The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
The 'legs' of the U-shape go down into the two socket holes.
The middle is wrapped with a few wraps of black plastic electrical tape.
The taped area is for your finger, and thumb to hold onto.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
There may be a small spark when you make the connection, advising you in advance.

The connection made is no longer than 2 seconds.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)

Computer comes on, (Power Supply actually) you know you have a bad Power On switch.
Computer does Not come on, you know you have a bad Power Supply.

Connecting jumper for start up


That would be connecting a jumper wire, from the Green wire to ANY Black wire, in the 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

If this problem is in direct relation to a Dell E210882 motherboard, it uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19298234/19565862.aspx#19565862

Example of a 24-pin power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)
ANY Black wire is Ground wire.

With the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and the power supply,(Computer), plugged into power, the jumper wire is inserted into the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Looking at the photo to the far right in the link, shows the ATX main power cable plugged in.
Where the wires go into the connector is the BACK of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.
The other end goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire in it.

The end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable connector, has a metal terminal end.
This metal terminal end is pretty far down into the connector, from the backside of the connector.
For this reason the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch the metal terminal end.

The most widely used jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. Black plastic electrical tape is applied to the center of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers.

(One wrap of black plastic electrical tape will insulate you from 600 Volts DC)

The 'legs' of the U-shaped paper clip then go down into the socket holes.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
The voltage is VERY low, but there may be a small spark.
Warning you in advance.

Power supply comes on?
You have a bad Power On switch.

Power supply does Not come on?
You have a bad Power Supply.
