How do I fix my treadmill? The motor slows down and speeds up at will,

Not an easy answer. Most treadmills have direct current motors and motor controllers. It's possibly one of three problems; If the motor has brushes ( look up your model on a Google search and try to determine that) they may be worn. replace brushes or motor. The controller may be malfunctioning ( it is a replaceable 'black box' component). Third, the speed control dial or slide control could be dirty or worn out. You ay need technical help from outside.

TROMM WM2277HW Front loader washer has an increasing louder spin cycle.

THE DRIVE PULLEY- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.
THE DRIVE MOTOR- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.

Kenmore 86582800 drum has a high pitched squeak after been on for 5minutes. 1983 model

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Drive Belt

If the dryer makes noise, the belt may be frayed or damaged. If the belt is damaged, it will make noise every time it travels around the pulleys. The drive belt is a long, narrow band that wraps around the entire drum, then around a tension pulley and the motor pulley.


Drum Roller

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers. If one is worn out replace all of them at the same time as a preventative measure.

Drum Roller Axle

Over time the drum roller axles can wear out, causing the rollers to wobble. If this happens the dryer makes noise. If the dryer is making a rumbling noise, check the rollers and axles. If any are worn out, replace them all at the same time.

Blower Wheel

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.

Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

Drum Support Roller & Axle

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers or axles may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers and axles. If one is worn out replace all of them at the same time as a preventative measure.

Drum Support Bearing

The drum support bearing is at the rear of the drum. If the dryer makes noise check this bearing. If it is worn out, replace the entire bearing.

Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.

Drive Motor

Although not very common, if the dryer makes noise the drive motor may be worn out and the motor bearings can become noisy. If this happens the drive motor must be replaced. The bearings are permanently sealed and cannot be lubricated.

Drill press motor hums and barely turns

The motor has either got worn brushes or more likely the windings have been attacked by moisture and gotten the dreaded "green spot" (corrosion).

Worn brushes can be replaced if the commutator is still good. But failed motor windings require a new or reconditioned electric motor.

States see user manal E 30

The E30 code on Hotpoints means the motor isn't working. This can be due to a failed power module, worn motor brushes (very common on heavily used machines) or a failed motor fuse (usually caused by a worn motor armature). Sometimes it's a failed main circuit board, but this would normally be indicated by other erratic behaviour which you have not described, but it's still a possibility but is the least likely cause.

The tricky bit is knowing what has actually failed if you lack the tools and knowledge to make a diagnosis. The fuse is very cheap, but always blows for a reason: fuses don't just wear out. If the brushes are worn out then it's easy and cheap on a Hotpoint to replace worn carbon brushes: see for an excellent guide regarding this, all credit to the excellent Washer Help website. If the armature (the bit the brushes make contact with) is badly worn then new brushes won't fix the fault and a new motor is the best option. Hotpoint motors are fairly cheap and easy to replace so don't bother with gambling on a worn secondhand motor as it could fail again at any time.

Diagnosing a failed power module involves using a multimeter to test the module outputs. If the module has failed you still need to check the motor as I've known some peculiar armature failures to blow the module as well (even though the 7.5A motor fuse is meant to prevent this!).

Hotpoints certainly aren't the most reliable machines around, but they are relatively cheap to buy and usually cheap to fix. If the motor has worn out then expect the pump motor to fail very soon as well but again it's usually cheap to replace. When the machine is apart, check the drive belt for wear: Unless it's near perfect then replace it as a matter of course.

I hope that you have found my answer to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Whirlpool dishwasher noisy needs new motor

You may not need a new motor. If it is "buzzing" it may need a new small run capacitor - that can dry out and fail.
If the pump is noisy (but working) it may need clearing - or if worn - replace the pump.
Only replace the motor if the bearings are badly worn or armature damaged.

Kenmore 70 series dryer making loud rattling noise, drying ok

it could be a worn motor bearing, but they usually last for 20 years, i would guess that you have a worn drum roller, the thing that holds up the drum and looks like a wheel.
if your sure the motor has a worn bearing then replacing the motor is not easy as you have to unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft.
it also may be that you are talking about the idler pulley being worn. it is the device that holds tension against the belt and they also will wear out and be "wobbly"
