Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes:

* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness
begin troubleshooting right at the motor. Why start there? Because the motor is one of the prime suspects and it's easy to check. Remove the back panel and unwind the belt from the drum pulley. Now turn the motor pulley (sans belt) by hand. If it doesn't turn smoothly and easily, you have a bad motor.

If the motor pulley turns smoothly and easily by hand, next step is to run the motor with the belt still removed from the motor pulley. If the motor seems to run fine that way, put the belt back on and run it again. If the motor won't run under load (with the belt on), then that's another sign that the motor is bad.

Suppose the motor turns easily and freely by hand but won't run either with or without the belt. This is a more subtle condition because we're probably dealing with a bad MCU or flakey wire harness somewhere between the motor and MCU, or between the MCU and the CCU.

One trick that often works at this point is to remove and reinsert all wire connections at the board and motor. This tends to clean the small amount of corrosion that will build up on the connections. After you do this put the machine into a service cycle (see the instructions in the tech sheet found inside the unit or you can ). Part of the service cycle is running the motor at certain set speeds which checks the tach.


If you've removed/reinserted the wire harnesses and still no joy, then usually the problem is the MCU.

Drain pump isn't working properly or mystery clog


I would replace the drain pump if you are sure there are no obstructions to the water flow.

I can hear the hot watre dripping into the washing machine when it is turned off


see this cause:
It spins, but doesn't pump
drain line clogged, +remove some sock with pliers maybe you can remove the agitator+pumps propeller defective.
It doesn't spin or pump
frozen pulley pump, replace the pump
It pumps, but the water returns
improve the drain line+if the drain line reach more 4 inches, cut of the excess. if is lower,install air/gap siphon break assembly.

God bless you

I have a washer kemore 600 series, it pumps water in but will not do anything else. Is there a reset button on the motor or pump?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? try to unplug for 15 min then reset the home breakeer than plug in the machine again and try Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. To determine if the lid switch has failed, watch the part testing video . at repair clinic.com Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse. or it will fill but will stop after that

On my top load washer when it goes into a spin mode everything is real wet at end of cycle and there is water running on the foorwater seems to be coming some where in the back and watwer doesn;t drain but...


Might be the seal on the pump itself. If water is coming from underneath the unit, more than likely it's the pump seal. Very common problem. You'd be better off replacing the whole pump and not just the seal. Less trouble that way.

The coffee maker heats up the water, but it doesn't seem to be filtering the water. I'm not even sure if the water is being drained out of the water resevoir.


It sounds like the pump has possibly gone out , if that is the case,the pump cost and time and hassle to put new pump in ( IF, you can get it) would not be worth it on that type of machine. Might be time to hit the sales for a new one. Sorry, mike ( Mr Bean)

LG front load washing machine WM2233H Error code is FE


I found this information on the internet. I hope that it helps.
" Getting fe code on lg washer.
"This means that the washer is overflowing. This is a built in fault that turns on the drain pump so that the water doesn't get so high that it gets into the floor. If water is continually flowing into the washer you will get this problem. If this is the case the water valve is most likely the problem. To confirm unplug the washer and if the water doesn't stop flowing into the washer the water valve is the problem.

Thank you,
Shawn"

I hope that this helps you out

My knemoor dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting water. When I dump water in to the machine it runs but otherwise it seems to be water starved??help!


It sounds like the pump, the function of which is to pump water into the machine. Since it works when you add water manually, it doesn;t sound like a switch or anything.

A pump is easy to replace. It's usually attached with just a few screws/bolts and the hoses.

Hotpoint WT761 washing machine - Error code F-10 The machine is filling with water, then signalling F-10, then pumping the water out. So the fill solenoid and the pump are working OK. If I set the machine...


Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end
