Question about Washing Machines
I've just replaced the soloniod in my Hoover 500M0AUS top loader and it has started to spin dry again. But occaisionaly there are cracking sounds of plastic nib rubbing across the gears/cog and the bigger issue is tangling to cloths around aitator during spin rinse and spin dry modes. The issue, I think is that the agitator and the inner drum must rotate in one direction at the same rpm during these phases, but they don't. E.G when spin dry phase starts, the agitator tries to lead in spinninng and the drum follows. But by that time sgitator tangles clothes and the machine cuts or stops off-balance. Could it be the brake lever needing attention???
Thanks in advance for helping :)
Hi there.I'm guessing you changed the (Spin Brake Solenoid) underneath,it attaches to the brake arm,the solenoid retracts with a normal loud clunk & pulls the brake arm away..I think what is happening is the clutch spring inside that white plastic cog is not binding like it's supposed to & it's not taking the drum with it.so the agitator is spinning independantly without the drum.the clutch spring tightens in one direction for spin & loosens in the other direction for wash.either way i think your problem is in that plastic cog & clutch spring,the spring is inside that cog & hard to see.it can be repaired if your up to pulling the entire gearbox out to get to it.I hope this was helpful,it's kind of hard to explain by this method.cheers Chris
