BLOWER NOT KICKININ ON A NORDYNE FURNACE


Do you have 120 volts applied to the motor? Try spinning the blower wheel by hand, if this getsbthe motor running the capacitor must be replaced. If there is power to the motor and does not start up, the motor will have to be replaced.

Drum won't spin

Water Level Control / Pressure Switch
his is the most common reason a washer will agitate but not spin. To check this on most , with no water you should have continuity on pins 7&15. With the tub full 7&16 should have continuity. This video walks you thru checking another type of switch.

Lid Switch
This can be the problem for the washer not spinning . Most whirlpool styles this will effect both agitate and spin but some models will still agitate but not spin.This is easy to check. You will need to remove the switch, this varies with model type but the testing will be the same. When the lid is closed the switch should have continuity when the lid is opend the switch should have no continuity. If it differs replace the Lid Switch.

Timer
To check the timer you will need to refer to the wiring diagram or disassemble to access the motor. Check the leads from the timer to the motor when turned to a wash cycle this should have 120 volts. If not replace the Timer, if it does the timer is not the problem.

Motor
To check the motor you will need to disassemble the washer to access the motor. First you can check the motor windings, to do this remove the plug and connect ohmeter to terminals. Refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. Check motor for shorts by connecting ohmeter to terminals and motor housing should have no continuity. Connect voltmeter to motor wire connector and check for voltage. You should have 120 volts, if you do and the motor does not run replace the motor. If it does not have power the problem is elsewhere.

Belt
If your washer is a belt drive type make sure the belt is tight. Check for black soot from belt wear. Replace if it has excessive wear or broke.

Motor Coupler
This is a fairly common problem with direct drive machines but inexpensive and easy to replace. The Motor Coupler transfers power from the motor to thetransmission. The following video will walk you through the replacement of the Motor Coupler.

Transmission
The transmission does not usually fail. To check this on a direct drive remove the motor and then turn tub inside. If it spins freely with no noise theproblem is elsewhere. If it is noisy it needs replacing this is expensive and depending on the age of your machine you may not want to replace it. On a belt drive remove the belts and spin tub.

Maytag top load will not agitate and only spins on delicate cycle


could have a bad motor,there are two sets of windings in the motor or low and high speed.the delicate works on the low speed and everything else works on the high speed winding,you can check with a meter to make sure 120 volts is going to the motor.sometimes the motor will just hum and nothing else.you'll have to look at the wiring diagram to see what color wires are going to the high speed winding,if 120 volts is coming down but nothing happens you have a bad motor.

The dryer is plugged in and the circuts seem to work however the dryer is making a humming noise but it will not turn on fully.


what do you mean it won't fully turn on?do you mean the motor won't run because usually when it humms you either have a bad motor or something is jammed and stopped the motor from spinning.try this,open the door,with one hand hold the door switch in and with the other hand spin the drum,have someone else push the start button while you do this,if it starts the motor is bad,if you can't spin the drum something could be stuck in the blower wheel or the belt broke and could of jammed up the motor but it sounds like you have a bad motor.let me know what you find and next time send the brand name and model number.

Verify that it has 120 volts present at the inducer motor connections. If it does then replace the motor again. If it does not then you will need to replace the circuit board.

The dryer does not turn over and makes a buzzing sound like the motor is stuck. Replaced the bad motor which was frozen and it still makes the same sound


open the door and spin the drum,if the drum won't spin you have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is getting jammed up somehow.next time send model number.also you can pull the drum and belt and jump out the door switch with a piece of wire and see if the motor runs,if not you have a bad motor,stick the wire into the two outside holes on the door switch harness i believe the middle is the ground,like i said if the motor doesn't run it's most likely bad,you can also check with a meter to see if you're getting 120 volts to the motor to make sure

Drum is not spinning i have just bought it of a


Are you able to hear the motor kick on when you try to start the dryer? If so, then likely belt has come off. If you can't, then check for 120 volts at each pole of the plug referring to neutral. Then check for 240 volts across both poles. The electric motor is usually 120vac, and the heating elements are 220vac. Since the motor draws so little current, the manufacturers typically just put it on 1 leg or the other.

If you are missing 120vac on either pole, check the breaker for the dryer. Turn it off, then back on. See if dryer works normally now.

If you measure across both poles, and come up with anything other than around 220vac, then double check the breaker, turn it off, and then back on. If still not working, and you don't have 220vac across both poles, then the plug is likely miswired.

My dryer is drawing 22 amps, the drum is turning fast. I am getting no heat for the clothes. The voltage is 240. I would like to see a manual so I can see if a belt is off or not. Thanks Tony


My guess is that the power socket in the wall for the dryer is incorrectly wired! 22 amps is about right for a functioning dryer, but not just the motor. The drum is turning, so the one belt is intact. First thing to check is the voltages at the socket. There should be 240 volts between the two slanted connections, and 120 volts between the center vertical connection (neutral/ground) and either slanted connection. I'm guessing that the 120 volt motor has 240 volts across it accounting for the fast drum speed. If the socket checks ok, check the wiring of the cord inside the dryer. The center wire of the cord should go to case ground. Hope the motor wasn't damaged.
