Question about Ariston Technologies Ariston AWD12 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

I have a AL125OCT Washer Drier and the drum motor appears to have stopped working. The machine goes through its cycle without the drum rotating. The drive motor just does not start. The drive belt seems fine. Is it an overload switch that needs resetting? part of the electronics that may have failed or could it be the motor? There is no evidence of fusion. Thanks David

To even contemplate trying to repair something like this you must have the service manual or service sheet, often inside the machine, under the inspection panel, when removed will reveal a troubleshooting manual. https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f16b0618a09b52f6852574a5004b31c1?OpenDocument Above is a generic service manual, if there is no sheet in the unit, this will help somewhat. Now below is a dedicated self help washer repair troubleshooting site, all free, now between this website and http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/diy-repair-help.html
You simply are going to have to troubleshoot to isolate and fix your problem,as may symptoms, look the same , yet have very differing Causes. It also would be good if you have a Multimeter, too. But as said it is all in the manuals and troubleshooting sites to know exactly what to do, step by step. "Is it an overload switch that needs resetting? " (sic) No I do NOT think so. "part of the electronics that may have failed ?" (sic) Yes i DO think you have had some sort of electronic, electrical, sensor failure. "could it be the motor? " (sic) usually these stand up well, you can usually tell by the smell that a burnt out motor gives off, it is very distinctive. So NO I do NOT think the motor is bad. It is most likely OK. But never to be ruled out, until tested.

Miele WT945 drier removal


Hi dear.
It is very complicated work. I can suggest you should not involve doing that but if you know what you are doing try that out. See if it helps.
Common problem: Stuck drying air fan shaft.
1- Unplug machine from power. Remove top cover.
2- RHS at the back,on outer drum horizontally mounted motor,drives a belt.
3- Try to rotate motor shaft (impeller) by hand, see if it's hard to rotate. Try to make it free to rotate.
3- If you have a capacitance meter, check value of capacitor should be in range of 2.5 uF if not replace capacitor.
Beyond that you need to get tech. to assist your machine. I hope that helps so far. Thanks.

When washing heavily soiled loads, do not overload your washer in order to assure good cleaning results.

To add a forgotten item:
1. Press the Power button.
2. Press the Start/Pause
3. Wait for the door lock light to go out (Immediately).
4. Add the item, close the door, and press the Start/Pause
The door safety state continues for 15 seconds and the cycle is restarted.
ensure thorough cleaning,
To
Try washing bedding, towels, undergarments,
contact using the ActivFresh
GETTING STARTED
1. Load your washer.
2. Close the door.
Z_
Push the laundry into the drum completely to prevent the laundry from being caught in the door or
....... from falling out of the drum.
3. Press the Power button.
4. Add detergent and additives to the dispenser (page 20-21).
5. Select the appropriate cycle and options for the load (page 14-16).
6. Press the Start/Pause
7. The Wash Indicator light will illuminate.
8. The estimated cycle time will appear in the display.
The time may fluctuate to better indicate the time remaining in the cycle.
The actual time required for a cycle may differ from the estimated time in the display depending on the
water pressure, water temperature, detergent, and laundry.
9. Before your washer starts to fill, it will make a series of clicking noises to check the door lock and do a
quick drain.
,
When the cycle is complete, the door lock light will go out and "End" will appear in the display.

DO NOT attempt to open the door until the door lock light is off. To add a forgotten item, see
"Loading your washer" section (page 13).

When your washer is restarted after a pause, expect a delay of up to 15 seconds before the cycle
continues.

Pressing Power button cancels the cycle and stops your washer.

The pre wash, wash, rinse and spin indicator lights will illuminate during those portions of the cycle

Motor not turning at all. Water goes in and pumps


Since you say relay sounds are heard, it shows the command is OK. The power to the motor is not reaching. It could be relay contact problem.

If you have a option of only spin, try this option. If it works the motor is OK. Otherwise you have to trace the power line and test it through a electrical line tester.

Whirlpool Duet Washer drum won't rotate, can't rotate manually


How are ya? This is kind of technical information that i'm about to give you, so if you're not that technical then you should call a service technician to diagnose. Good luck and thanks for the inquiry :)

DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down.
If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 Minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and the power cord are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check drive motor tachometer resistance. It should be approx. 115 ohms.
4. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.

WFC 2260 - Machine Fills and empties, but drum doesn't rotate


You probably need to replace the brushes in the motor.
Remove rear panel, remove belt from drum, undo 2 screws securing motor, unplug lead to motor, lever motor back with a screw driver, keeping hold of it, and remove motor.
You will find the brushes located at the opposite end to the motor pulley.
Please leave a fixya rating for my proposed solution.
Thankyou.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
