Acqua water shark won't move


This action is a typical response to a drive motor unit with water intrusion. While the motor is probably not completely water-filled, the amount in there gets circulated when the motor first starts and the internal motor circuitry detect the water and shuts down the drive motor as a safety feature.
I was able to take apart my drive motor on another brand, dry it out, and reseal the casing using silicone rubber.
Drive motors are expensive, but generally, still a good value compared to buying a new unit. If you can repair or replace the motor yourself, it becomes economically feasible.
If you do repair the unit, always be vigilant and remove the unit as soon as it has done its job. Water pressure is always trying to push water into the sealed motor units, and over time, it WILL get in...so let your robot dry out between uses.

Agitater wont stop at start of cycle maytag mvwc6esww


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

My Jacuzzi Tub won't start


Try compressed air through the system,careful not to use too much pressure. Also you may use another water pump to push water through system and free up the motor. The easiest thing may be to get a new motor though.

Just bought a used boat, 1966 sportscraft with an evinrude 2 stroke motor, don't know how to test the motor without going into the water. don't know much about boats


Hi. If you just want to run the motor then you can do it in you driveway. Go to a sports store with boating equipment and ask for "Muffs" to run your boat motor out of water. You can see a pictures of outboard motor muffs on google images:

http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&source=imghp&q=muffs+for+outboard&gbv=2&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

Take the muffs and place them over the water intakes located above the propeller (look like vents on each side). Hook a garden hose up the muffs and start water flow. Make sure nothing is near the propeller. Make sure to pump the bulb in the fuel line to the motor until it stiffens. Crank the motor. When the motor starts, you should see water start to flow out of the back of the motor near the cover and out of the center of the propeller with the exhaust. You must keep water flow to the motor using the muffs while it is running or it will burn up.

Dishwasher began leaking underneath when turned on. Humming as if trying to start, but nothing further exept water on floor


I don't know how old this dishwasher is but the symptom your describing sounds like the ceramic water seal on the bottom of the impeller assy but above the motor has failed. When the seal fails it allows water to run though the motor and then the bearings in the motor fail. Once water starts running though a dishwasher motor they are pretty much shot. The reason for this is that the leak starts out slow and it leaks for a long period before you ever see the water under the dishwasher. So by the time you see the leak water has been going through the pump / motor assy for weeks or months. By that time the service technicians only option is to replace the motor pump assy.

I have a Kenmore 600 electric dryer. The basement flooded and the dryer was in approximately 6 inches of water. I've removed all the water from the cabinet and let it sit for 2 days to completely dry out....


Sorry to say but water ruined the motor. You can test it again by pushing the start button and at the same time spin the motor. If the motor starts that will tell you the start windings in the motor are bad. The motor would have to be replaced.

1hp Water Ace dual jet water pump hums, doesn't pump


DOES YOUR NEW MOTOR HAVE A START CAPACITOR BUILT INSIDE OF IT TO HELP IT START. OR DOES IT REQUIRE A CAPCITOR START / RELAY BOX ABOVEGROUND. ALSO IF YOUR OLD MOTOR WAS 220V AND THE NEW ONE IS 115V YOU HAVE 2 HOT WIRES AND NO NEUTRAL. THE NEW MOTOR REQUIRES 1 HOT AND 1 NEUTRAL. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

Indecit dishwasher not circulating water


Checked that the motor was not seized by inserting slotted screwdriver through hole at back of machine to engage in slotted end of motor to spin up water circulating motor. Motor was not seized, so that was not the problem. Then took bottom off machine and on inspection found that the start capacitor which is bolted to side of motor was bulging and discoloured wher the terminals are. Replaced Start capacitor ( Less than £10.00) and machine motor started up. Machine behaved irratically at first, flashing lights etc.but got it to reset by switching on and off a couple of times, ran machine through cycle, now working ok.
