Why did my motor freeze until I let cool water flow through pump for a while


sounds like your pump or motor seized from overheating which makes parts swell / grow in size/expand so they stop working ,,,letting cold water flow through the pump would have cooled the parts and help shrink the parts again .. Overheating can do permanent damage to your machine.. I think it needs to be dismantled and inspected for damage by someone who knows what to look for. not sure if the problem is in the pump or the motor, hope that helped.....pete

My Whirlpool LTE5243DQ1 has stopped working, neither the washer or dryer will work or make any kind of noise, I have checked the power cord and the fuse box and both are working properly what else could...


Make sure the dryer isn't full of lint behind the panels; throughout the components of the lint extraction and back in the wiring components of the dryer. Mine stopped working and a thorough cleaning of the above solved the problem. My washer was working, however, before this process. I first checked circuit breakers (no help) and the thorough cleaning did the job. If there is overheating, there is some kind of safety shut off.

Kenmore electric dryer 70 series - it starts, motor sounds horrible, turns, gets hot, almost a burnt smell. what do i do?


Greetings,
it sounds like its bad...they usually will drag slightly when you push start. in other words, you can hear a delay in it starting...almost a hum, but not always...if its smelling like burnt wiring..it usually cuts off and will not come back on until it cools down..

Are you sure its the motor thats making noise?? if a roller goes bad..it will go thump,thump, thump and they make alot of noise too...does it stop during the cycle? if you have more question, let me know and hope this helps

Washer started grinding during spin, now won't spin at all.


sounds like the motor spun a bearing. Usually this requires a motor replacement. when the bearing breaks down enough, the lube no longer keeps the bearing cool. Then the friction just mounts up and makes alot of noise. after the heat from forcing a broken bearing the motor then overheats and then fails. after letting it cool it might reset itself but only to pop again because the bearing just gets worse until it locks up and becomes heat welded.
so there. I'd say motor replacement since the bearings and motor are all one unit.
Sorry, i hope this helps with the diagnosis

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Whirlpool noise


Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry
