I have a St. Maarten tub and the #1 pump does will

I have a St. Maarten tub (don't know if they make this series anymore) and the #1 pump does not kick on. It hums and then turns off. I called my dealer and he told me that it could be several differnt problems with the pump. He told me to pull Pump #1 and bring it in and replace Pump #1 with Pump #2. I did that, but I can't get the display panel to show any power. It just sits there blank and nothing happens at all. I think maybe it's because it doesn't sense a #2 pump? Isn't there a pressure switch that maybe needs to send a signal back to the control panel? I really need to get this pump up and running as it's been in the teens and 20s and I'm afraid I am going to freeze up before I can get my #1 pump into the shop. Help!!!! Thanks!

The problem with the pump #1 sounds like a capacitor, unless the bearings have seized, it's the start/run capacitor or possibly the inner switch but that is not as common. Humming and then turning off is textbook sign of a bad capacitor or seized bearings, if the pump has not been running loud or whining, it definitely the cap.

I have a Hailea pond pump about 1 1/2 years old which was working perfectly up till yesterday, suddenly it stopped working, according to the manual it says need to change the impeller. Can you tell me how...

the problem is things arent made to last anymore and if you replace the impeller then the chance of the motor burning out is high because pumps dont last long anymore and if you have a problem with one it the first year or 2 then thats all that pump is ment to last.

I have a fav6800aww maytag neptune stop durring cycle

Hello mttwtkns,
I’m an owner like you; from what you describe I feel you have a clutch issue. You don’t mention dc or UC errors when the spin cycle fails in Quick Wash cycle or any wash cycle. The 22 min mark in Quick Wash cycle is the start of the first spin cycle. What most owners don’t realize is this machine is designed to begin the spin cycle with a fair amount of water in the wash tub. When it fails in spin cycle because of unbalance errors they report the machine failed to drain properly. I believe the Maytag design team designed the firmware in the Control Board to do this to help dampen out tub oscillations at the start of the spin cycle. You are one of a few owners that have taken the SM and used the Control Board diags to troubleshoot. Good job!!! and very refreshing to hear. See this post for a step by step process to remove the clutch. Try a maintenance clean up of the Oneway Roller Clutch bearing and see if that will get you back in service, if not I would do a Clutch replacement. My machine is a series 16 doesn’t use the upper one-way roller clutch bearing. You series of machine is the 1ST two numbers of your serial number of the machine. Some parts are seria number/series dependent.
Don’t get hung up on the pressure switch. It sets on top of the drain pump. You can test as you know in Service Mode thru the board input testing of page 16 of the SM. Just fill with a few buckets of water until you see the transition -0 to -1 for low level. That’s about 3.5 inches of water in the wash Basket. Then as you stated turn on the drain pump in Service Mode to pump out the wash tub. Your drain pump is fine as you have already tested. I have a post on a retrofit of the Sump Cap where I installed a stainless steel screen to protect the pump impeller from coins and other trash. Again I feel you have a clutch issue, I would like to see dc/UC errors to the display for this fail to spin issue. Are you sure you are not taken those unbalance errors to the display?. You could also go into Service Mode and read all the error codes. See page 25/26 for unbalance diag error code blocks 5 and 10. Post back if you need additional help. Rich

My sony dvd player reads " cannot play this dic" with every disc I put in, is this fixable and if so how?

Depends, first I have to ask what types of disc's your trying. Are they CD-R's (burnt) movies, or all store bought ? I ask because usually if its not reading discs (an optics problem) then it would say no disc found or something to that effect. What type of DVD player is it ? From another country perhaps ? Region settings can come into effect, if the dvd's or the player is from another country. Post back with any answers to the above questions for further help.Thank you for choosing Fixya!
