I own a wcvh6600hww front loading easing machine. I load the clothes, soap, etc...go to start the load. Hit power , choose my cycle, & then I try to press start, but nothing happens...the start/pause...

It sounds like it's gamed, the fact the button is flashing shows a major problem, turn off power, remove the motor still connected, if it runs o.k.the problem is the machinery, or vicer /verser, if it is jammed machinery take various parts off until things move.

Where i can find elecrical wiring diagram

When you try to start the bike, does anything happen? Noises? Clicks? Or is it silent and nothing happens? If you hear a click or it try's to start but doesn't turn over. If nothing at all happens when you hit the start switch then you most likely have an electrical issue, versus if you hear the starter click or try to start to bike, then that would mean a mechanical issue.

Treadmill will not level out and motor sounds all the time

If the incline moves but only just a bit, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. We remove the motor from the treadmill, reconnect the wiring, and then try to run the incline motor outside the treadmill. Many times, this will unjam it if that is the problem and then reinstalling it in the treadmill will get it to work. If you have the same problem or it doesn’t run outside the machine and you can hear it try to work, you need to replace the incline motor.

Frigidaire GLTF2940ES0 won't pump or spin

Sounds like a water valve solenoid. The hot and cold water is controlled by solenoids that open and close. Try running just the hot and just the cold. If one or the other works, then the proble,m is a bad solenoid valve

I accidentally started sewing with wrong foot and needle hit the plate and broke. Machine won't sew

This is just a guess since I haven't seen exactly what's happening, but my guess is that the drive belt has come off. You can hear the motor running because the machine is attempting to bring the needle to it's fully up position. Since the machine isn't turning, the motor will run faster and faster until it hits full speed.

Will not start

bsolo, sounds like something jammed in your pump stopping the motor. You will have to remove the cabinet to get at the pump. It has 2 clips that hold it to the motor. The best way to tell for sure is to remove the cabinet, jump the lid switch and start the washer. If the motor runs without the pump, then you know for sure it's jammed. I will try to attach a diagram on how to remove the cabinet.6212c10.gif216ffff.jpg
