Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

L need the wiring diagram for an GE washing machine motor model #5kh4zdt74s it has 5 wires colored ( black, white, yellow, orange and blue ) the orange goes to a bi-metal circuit breaker either for over-load or more likely for disconnecting the start winding? then to one side of the start winding. the white also goes to the same side of the start winding. black to the other side of start winding. blue and yellow both connect to separate run winding ends?

I was unable to find your model but maybe there are some other clues to the model's number you can use on this web site.

Also all washing machines include a wiring diagram underneath the control panel at the top. Unscrew from behind and the sides and remove, be careful of the wiring. You don't want to pull a connection out.

I have a Frigidaire front load washer model numberFafs4073nwo I do have power going to the machine but I have no lights on console completely dead


WASHER WILL NOT START:

Power If your washing machine won't start, begin by looking at the power source. First of all, is the washing machine plugged in? If it is, has it tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse? Check and reset the breaker (or replace the fuse) if necessary.

Lid Switch The main control for the washing machine is the switch inside the lid. If this has stopped working for some reason, your washing machine won't start. It's not especially difficult to troubleshoot this on a washing machine. You might have to open the top to access the switch. With the power on, depress the switch and listen for a click. If you don't hear one, the switch MAY BE BAD and will need to be replaced. Confirm defectiveness with a multi meter checking for continuity OHMS. An open circuit reflects a bad switch..
If the switch works but the washing machine still won't start, check to see if your washing machine has a special fuse for the lid switch. It will usually be inside the control panel. If it's blown, you'll need to replace it before the washing machine will start.

Door Interlock The problem could be with the door interlock. If the lights come on but the machine won't start, this might well be the cause. This could either be down to the wiring that runs to the door interlock, or the door catch not activating the interlock itself.

Timer Knob Some models of washing machine use a mechanical timer knob and won't run until the water in the machine has filled to the selected level. If the knob doesn't line up properly with the graphics on the control panel, you can try to troubleshoot the washing machine problem by advancing the timer a little. When you've done this, pull it out a little way and see if the washing machine will start properly.

Push start switch may need to be tested with a multi meter for continuity OHMS should show a closed circuit when pushed in or turned on.
The start switch on some top load washers is often part of the timer and is activated by pulling out on the timer knob. Although not normally available as a separate part, the switch can be tested for continuity with a multi-meter. You will need to remove power from the appliance and then locate the correct timer contacts as noted on the wiring diagram. On some electronic controlled models, the start switch is a momentary contact type switch located on the control console. You can test this switch for continuity with a multi-meter when the push button is held in


Overheating If you've run several loads, one after another, without any problem but suddenly find your washing machine refuses to start, overheating could be the cause. The simple way to discover whether this is the problem is to give the machine ample time to cool down, say for a couple of hours, and then try it again. If it works fine, overheating has been the problem and you may have a motor with bad windings.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!


All washing machines use a motor that is responsible for spinning and agitating during the cleaning cycle. Many top load brands use a reversing motor which means the motor spins in one direction for agitating and another for spinning and draining. If the motor does not start, but makes a humming or buzzing noise then it may be defective. To verify if the motor is at fault, remove the drive and /or pump belts and then try to start the motor again. On direct drive models, you will have to disengage the pump and the direct drive coupling to the transmission. If the motor starts, then the problem is with the transmission or the pump and can be further diagnosed by reconnecting each one individually. If the motor does not start or continues to hum or buzz, then it will need to be replaced

Lastly CONTROL BOARD

If the control board does not provide the proper voltage to the drive motor, fill valve, drain motor or door lock then the washer may not start. The main control board on most washers is complicated and difficult to diagnose without proper test equipment and procedures. You can visually inspect the control for signs of electrical arcing or burned or damaged components on the board. You should use caution when replacing a control board as sometimes the burned components are caused by external component failures.

My Roper washing machine will not complete a cycle. It stops before it gets to rinse. If I turn it off and wait a few hours, it will run and finish if I waited long enough. Could the motor be dying?

HOW TO live TEST a G.E - MOTOR

After removing the cabinet follow the wires from the motor halfway up the tub. Then cut and splice the ORANGE, the BLUE, the VIOLET /WHITE, & the RED wires.
Now using a long long extension cord with the end connector cut off and exposing the 2 end wires stripped back about an inch.

To check the spin cycle: Connect and splice the RED & the Blue wires to one end of the extension cord wire. And the ORANGE & WHITE /VIOLET to the other end of extension cord, be sure to use but connectors or electrical tape. Plug in the cord an the wash cycle should start? If not the motor is bad.

To check the wash cycle: Connect the BLUE and the WHITE/VIOLET wires to one end of cord. And the ORANGE & RED connected to the other end of cord, then plug in and the wash cycle should start? If not the motor is bad.

You will destroy the motor by running it with multiple speeds tied together. So be careful. Just try and get it to work with 2 wires and tape the others off away from each other and the frame so they won't short anything out. themobilian_795.jpg

Gentle annie motor wiring


This according to googled results, and somewhat verified by me:

For the Gentle Annie connect the white/orange/green wires together to from a
star point and the three other ends (red, yellow & blue) go to your 3 phase
rectifier.
You can leave the others hanging. Don't form the star point with the wire
that's green with a yellow stripe, that's the chassis earth. The brown,
purple, and brown with black stripe I think are sensing coils, with a star
point connected to the black wire. 1.4ohm each, whereas the main coils are
4.8ohm and apparently rated for 5A.

green is ground, white is neutral, red/black is usually hot on a 1 phase 110-120v motor. (normal colors are black, white, green).
if three phase, (208-220v), green is ground, white, is neutral, black/red/blue are hot. (only uses 2 of these, so there should only be a total of 4 wires). once you have the wiring connected, turn on the motor, and check the rotation direction it turns. if it turns backwards, reverse the red/black wires, the red/white wires, or the black/white wires.

be sure you look at the data plate on the motor to determine one or three phase motor.
their should be a small diagram of which wire inside go to which other wires inside on a three phase motor and for which voltage, and are usually numbered on the individual wire.
good luck.

The black or brown connection block on the motor should be color coded to match the harness. If not you will need to remove the control panel and find the service guide sheet. This will give you the wiring diagram for the whole machine.
