    my dryer is not working

  • SARITL Apr 20, 2009

    HELLO.
    Question
    THE WASHING MACHINE MOTOR WILL NOT SPIN THE TUB OR AGITATE IT WHEN THE CYCLE IS ON. YOU CAN HEAR THE MOTOR TRYING TO MOVE THE TUB BUT IT SORT OF HUMS THEN WITHIN A FEW SECONDS THERE IS A CLICK (LIKE A OVERHEAT SWITCH) AFTER A FEW MINUTES YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN. IF I PUSH/TURN A LITTLE THE MOTOR THEN IT'S RUNS FINE AND EVERYTHING OPERATES UNTIL IT STOPS ITS CYCLE. I CAN MOVE THE PULLEY MANUALLY AND RETRY SEVERAL TIMES IT MAY START FINE.... DOES THE CAPACITOR IN THE SYSTEM GIVE IT THE BOOST FOR THE START UP THEN RUN. OR IS THERE ANY OTHER STARTING "THING" THAT GIVES THE MOTOR A BOOST... DO I HAVE A CAPACITOR PROBLEM OR A MOTOR PROBLEM. NOTE WHEN THE MOTOR GETS GOING EVERY THINGS SEEMS TO WORK OK... THIS IS A STANDARD LANDRY-CENTER UNIT(WASHER & DRYER COMBO) NO ELECTRONIC CIRICIT-BORD OR ELECTRONICS BOARDS IN IT MADE BY FRIGIDAIRE
    I JUST GOT A CAPACITOR AND REPLACE THE OLD OE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT BLOW-OFF AND STILL I GET THIS "HAMMING" NOICE AND THE MOTOR DON'T START TILL I GIVE IT A PUSH, THEN IT'S FINE TILL IT END IT'S CYCLE.
    HELP .........PLEASE
    THANK YOU

Good day.

Have you checked on the AC line of your washing machine?
Maybe the starting capacitor has blown off or the fuse from the ac line to the micro computer is busted. Please check

I've tried all suggestions from other posts but still can't get Tub Clean Function to work.


Only suggestion I have is to try these old reset solution that work on some older lg washers: unplugg and wait 5 minutes or so, or unplug an d hold power button for 15 seconds, or unplug and the plug back in holding power button down for about 15 seconds then release. Good luck. (LG makes great products but their customer service and repair are horrible).

SPIN not working in my washing machine. Consulted couple of service provider but yet unlucky. What can be any other options.


If the water pump is working, and it uses the same belt as the spin function (which would mean that the motor is also still working), then that would just leave the shaft/bearing for the drum. Does it have an agitator, and if so, is it working? That could help you determine which individual part of that assembly is not working.

Start button wont work


check the door switch and check if the power comes to the panel. If not the switch is faulty. If the switch works but the panel does not start even after the push switch is working then it is possible that the processor is not working. check the working of the touch pad switch, this is also seen as a regular failure as this is the most used switch.

Top washing sprayers do not work. Bottem works


If your top sprayer arms arent working its probably a problem with the water line from the source to the top arms. These hoses are usually inside the machine itself and will require a professional to open up and check. There really isnt alot that you can do by yourself on this one, sorry.

Kenmore Elite Frontload Washer not working


If you already changed the door lock the only other thing that controls that is the control board... It might be faulty.

You should still be able to drain the water by selecting a spin cycle and closing the lid, unless the lid switch isnt working

Maytag mav7600 agitator works and don't


Look at timer plug on harness for pins that are sticking out from side of timer plug, away from timer. See if they are all in the same amount. Sometimes one can work its way out so it won't make a good contact. Push in to plug if you find one.

Sounds like you may have a bad timer. They can work perfectly in one setting, and not work at all on an other. They can sometimes get a "flat spot" in one area that will stop them from moving or working. Good Luck!!! Jim
