Take off the impeller. You will need to hold the motor shaft from the back and spin the impeller off. Check in the mouth of the impeller for a screw. This will need to be removed first.

Why has motot gotten noisey

over time motors get noiseier by wear that occurs in shaft sleeve bearings , this wear is accelerated by water/rust that might get inside , also if pump is new not running a Level base will wear out pump/motor early as well
motor replacemnt is most common way of resoloving this

The air switch on my whirlpool tub will not toggle, i must hold the button in to keep motor running.

What you are experiencing when you push the Air Button down and it engages the BATH PUMP but when you release the the Air Button is a bad Air Switch in the BATH PUMP.
When you push the air button down it sends a column of air to move a small switch in the BATH PUMP. When the switch in the BATH PUMP is bad it will not engage.
What you need is a new Air Switch model TBS-339.

I have a Honda GC160 motor on a powerwasher. The engine stalls when I release the power wand handle, but if i keep the handle squeezed, it works but the engine sounds like it is laboring.

replace the unloader of your pump....find the model of the PUMP ...not the washer itself...the pump and find a parts list and then purchase and replace the unloader. That will fix your problem. Good luck

On start up, the motor ran slow then popped the circuit. plugged it into a 20 amp circuit, it ran a little stronger then shut off without popping the circuit. Motor was hot, and after a short period the...

It sounds like the compressor is trying to start under load because there is a tightness in the pump itself or there is high pressure air in the line between the pump and tank There is a small valve that releases the pressure out of the main pipe that runs between the compressor and tank once the tank is full and the motor automatically cuts off. You know this valve is working by the sound of a short spurt if air being released when the motor cuts off. Releasing this pressure means that the motor is able to restart easily because there is no load. If the valve is not releasing this air, the compressor is trying to start under full load which the motor is not capable of doing, hence the slow running, overheating and popping of breakers due to a current overload as the motor tries to run up to normal peed. Motor burnout is possible if it keeps recurring.

This small release valve is attached to the Pressure control switch that switches the motor On & Off and usually has a small pipe going to it or is incorporated inside the Pressure Control Switch. If the valve appears to be working then it means that the Non-return valve on the input to the tank is not sealing properly and letting air back into the main pipe causing the compressor to start under load. Check both valves for correct operation and replace as necessary.

If all the air side checks out OK the check for low oil level and / or binding in the air pump main drive shaft.

The motor on my Miele washing machine is running constantly even when not set on a programme. The water seems to empty out as soon as it comes in. I Have to release the Stop /Start button to stop motor.

what motor do you mean the motor that spins the drum or the pump motor if its the pump motor i would check the programmer as it tells the pump when to run, on a rinse water evacuate cycle it would seem that you are stuck in that mode call a loacl engineer

Will not drain

im assumig that youve already had the machine tipped back and bottom cover removed, as you look at the pump there should be metal clamps securing it to the drain pump motor, you can release the clamps and the pump will release from the motor giving youbetter acess to the clamps..
BE WARNED if there water in the machine its comin out when you undo the clamp!!!! and if you need to order a new pump assy theyve since changed design and you must replace the drain pump/motor alltogether, not hard, but old pump no longer available
