Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Unit will not turn on at all. Power source definately works. Unsure if unit stopped during dry cycle or finished and never came back on, but clothes were dry, indicating it was finished with the wash cycle (there were also very few items in the machine at the time). All drains have been cleaned and there are no fuses out in the apartment's breaker box. Are there any internal fuses in the machine we can check? Also, the door would not open, which you can normally do even if the power to the machine is off (Used manual door override to open door). Thank you for your time. the washing machine door won't open after the cycle has completed - how can i manually overide??

To open the door. First kill the power supply. There is a vaccum switch as part of the door lock which has a small diameter pipe connecting from the lock to the a vaccum container mounted on or near the pump remove this pipe to allow air in to the switch. Whilst you are in the process clear the vaccum container, pump and all pipes leading to and from pump of debris (usually lime scale related). Then reconnect everything. Put a cup full of soda crystals in drum and wash on hottest temperature.

Timer won't stop after cycle finished.


Dryer will not shut off:

The timer: Located in the control console of the dryer the timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit and the timer motor itself. A defective timer motor or a defect in the timer's electrical contacts can cause the timer motor to fail and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made when the dryer is unplugged. Another test u can do is observe by eyesight and see does the timer advance or is it stuck on one cycle?


1. On gas and electric dryers that have an "Auto Dry" cycle, the cycling thermostat is often used to advance the timer as well regulate the drum temperature. Essentially, thermostat will alternately turn on the heat source or the timer motor when the temperature has been satisfied. To check this thermostat, you will have to check for power to the timer motor with a multi-meter, during a cycle. This is a live voltage test and caution should be used.

2. Some dryers will use a cool down thermostat to tumble the clothes without heat, at the end of the dry cycle. Power is routed through this thermostat to the drive motor to keep it running until the drum temperature has dropped to a specific temperature. If this thermostat fails it can cause the drum to turn indefinitely or until the door is opened. You can check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made with the power removed from the dryer.

Lastly check the moister sensor for OHMS according to ur schematic as it must show a certain amount of ohms as per ur unit. When unit has been on short while

Malber WD1000 wont condense the water that is fed through during the drying cycle


Since it drains properly during the wash cycle, we know the drain pump and its impeller (propeller) work, and the coin trap (you called it a filter) and hoses are not clogged. By the way, turning the rightmost knob to "4" will start the pump-out cycle, so you don't have to open that trap-door at the bottom. To condense, the machine needs COLD water (spritzing on an internal screen) during drying. Make sure your cold water hose is connected to the outside (outboard) connection on the back of the machine. As a long shot: If the gray drain hose is pushed too far down into your home's drain pipe (more than 8") there could be a "back-siphon" where dirty water siphons back into the washer. It's a long shot, but it does happen.
Lastly, the controller board (mounted at top of right side) could be bad, and not sending on-off commands to the pump during drying. During drying, the drain pump should cycle on and off constantly, every few minutes. Do you hear it running? If you remove back (about 12 Torx screws), at your lower left you will see the pump. There are only 2 wires (120 VAC) and they can be connected either way. Stick a meter on the terminals and see if power is cycling on and off. If not, the controller board is bad.
You can order one from Malber (in NYC) by calling Nancy at 516-323-5299. Tell her Mike, in Wash. D.C., says hi.

Hi
Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened.
Check the dishwasher wiring for a possible loose connection where it connects to the house wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers.
Check your house fuses or circuit breakers to make sure you have power to the dishwasher.

My HWD1000 Haier Washer/Dryer combo error EC4


EC4 is regarding: The temperature of air vent.

Within 30 minutes of dry cycle there is 5 minutes in which the temperature is not increasing.

The dryer heater is not working properly. Call a repair technician.

Alternatively, create a custom wash cycle with no dry cycle and hang dry the laundry if you are past warranty and do not want to pay to repair it.

Washing machine suddenly stopped working during cycle


Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

you have probably removed the tray during the time the brew unit was transporting the coffee. by removing the tray you stopped the transporting unit halfway in this process.
You can solve this by putting back the brew unit. Close the machine Do not put back the dump tray. Look into the machine, at the spot where the dumptray should go. There is a litte slot in the back. but put a little spoon or some small screwdriver into this slot. You can hear the machine finish the transporting cycle. After that you can put back the dumptray and it should work again.

Sounds like the problem is with the control board.  There is an internal fuse in the board but it is not replaceable.  You will need a qualified LG technician to service this unit.
