Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag lse7800acw Just installed a maytag LSE7800ACW, stacked washer/dryer combo.  The dryer works fine.  But the washer won't agitate or spin, it keeps running from one cycle to the next as if the knob just keeps going around and the motor wil get hot if you leave it on.  The motor will spin if you disconnect the belts and give a start with your hand.  Will not do this with belts connected.  Seems like it is only getting 120V.  Red wire at motor is 120V.  no others.

Re: maytag lse7800acw

The motor is faulty. Either the relay contacts are stuck or there is a shorted winding. Best to replace the motor.

Maytag stacked washer dryer lse7806ace

Take the belt off the transmission pulley and see if you can turn it by hand. It will agitate on direction and spin when you turn it the other direction.
Put the timer to spin with the belt off and see if the motor will run. There may be a problem in the start switch on the motor letting it start in one direction but not in the reverse direction.
Special tools are required to remove the transmission and brake assembelies. You also want to make sure there is nothing sticking through the holes in the basket causing it to lock up such as a nail or screw that may have been left in a pocket.
Post back with what you find.

The dryer on my maytag stacked combo lse7804ace the motor works but the dryer doesnt spin. Broken belt?

You will need to either re-install the belt or replace it. I would assume that it's broken because it's not that common for it to just run off the pulleys.

Kenmore stack washer and dryer

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

Maytag washer

This is similar to a problem I had after my power suddenly went out while the washer was filling with water. When the power resumed the washer would no longer run water... all other systems (agitate, drain, spin) worked fine.

A 10 minute, $113 dollar service call revealed that there was a fuse inside the front upper left area that had blown. Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the front panel to get access to the inside.

Check it out and replace it if necessary.
