The machine doesn't spin properly and doesn't drain the water


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission. Another common problem is the lid switch.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin properly.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer spin the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Drive Block If the washer won't spin the drive block might be worn out or may have come loose. Underneath the agitator the drive block connects the inner tub (the one that spins around) to the transmission. If the drive block wears out the transmission shaft will still spin but the tub may not - or it may spin slowly. This also usually causes a lot of noise. The drive block is relatively easy to replace.

Clutch Assembly If the washer won't spin, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Clutch Band kit If the washer won't spin, the clutch band kit might be worn out. The clutch makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. If the washer won't spin, this clutch band kit may need to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged It will have to be replaced.

Tub Bearing If the washer won't spin the tub bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer won't spin the tub seal and bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Bearing If the washer won't spin the bearing might have seized. This is not common. The bearing doesn't require any normal maintenance. They generally go bad when the tub seal fails and allows water to leak past into the bearing.
Basket Drive If the washer won't spin the basket drive clutch might be worn out. The basket drive sits on top of the transmission and engages with the inner tub. If the basket drive wears out the tub won't spin.

Basket Drive Hub Kit If the washer won't spin the basket drive hub might be worn out. The hub is a set of plastic gears underneath the agitator. The basket drive hub kit is easy to replace with standard hand tools.
Transmission If the washer won't spin the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are numerous more likely causes when a washer won't spin, which should be checked first.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SB2 won't spin or agitate. We bought it used and they swore it worked. It goes from 45min and drops down to 3mins. It never completes it's load. And after it beeps with a OL on


Hi.

Most spin troubles are caused by drain or pressure switch problems, but it does not look like that is your case. Check for blockage in drain system and clean the hose connected to pressure switch. As said I do not think that this is the problem but the drain system must be checked as part of troubleshooting.

OL code in fact is not related to drain problems, but to motor and mechanical problem. OL is returned when the washer is overloaded and the motor cannot turn the basket properly.

The first step to diagnose the problem is removing the basket and looking for problems under the basket (e.g. broken part or clothes stuck under the tub). Here a document showing how to.

If parts under the basket are OK the next step will consist in testing the motor. The motor can be tested reading impedance at its phase terminal and across the stator winding. The Cabrio's motor should read about 30/32 Ohms across its phase contacts.

If the motor and the rest are OK the problem is usually the RPS sensor that detects the rotational speed of the motor.

Regards.

Maytag dishwasher mdbh970aww don't drain water at the end of cycle


The drain pump motor in line with the outlet pipe could be faulty or blocked. The pump motor must spin in the pump out mode. You can check the pump by physically looking at the pump motor in the pump out mode. It should be spinning freely. If this is not the case the motor can be tested by checking with a AC volt meter for supply voltage across the 2 push on electrical terminals. Voltage present and motor not spinning indicates the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. No voltage on terminals indicates and electrical switching fault via the electrical or electronic switch panel.

Asko 1805 DW Circulation pump NF. What is the most common cause / fix. Is it the motor, impeller, capassitor or control board?


The pump motor can easly be tested by 1) Physically looking at the pump motor in the pump out mode. The motor must spin freely. The motor has 2 push on electrical connections that must have AC voltage across them in pump out mode. If voltage is present and motor not spinning indicates the motor windings are open circuit. No voltage at the 2 terminals indicate that the electrical / electronic switch circuit is faulty. The impeller could be jammed from debris or pipe blocked.

The dishwasher won't drain. I removed the drain line and it was clear when i did remove the drain line, there was bits of gound up plate in it.


The drain motor and its impeler could be faulty or blocked due to debris. The motor in line with the outlet pipe should spin in the pumpout cycle, The motor has an impeler that could be jammed due to debris. Test the motor by checking to see that AC mains voltage across the 2 push on terminals by using a AC volt meter. Voltage across the 2 terminals and motor not spinning indicates the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. The motor has 2 push on terminals and 2 pipe clamps and mounted on rubber "pull off" feet.

Pump not working


The pump motor is inline with the outlet pipe and can be checked by a)Looking to see if it the motor spins while in the pump out mode. b) Test with AC voltmeter across the 2 terminals for voltage while in pump out mode.
The motor can be removed by removing the 2 hose clips and disconnecting the electrical push on lugs.
If voltage is across the terminals and motor does not spin...indicates that the motor is open circuit and must be replaced.

Model kudsoiflwh6 dishwasher will not drain. pump motor is working


The pump motor has an impeler inside. Is the motor working AND the impeler spinning / turning?
Is there any obstruction in the outlet pipe?
Drain out is done via the pump out motor. Is the pump out motor working? Check by deternining with a AC voltmeter to see if supply voltage is across the terminals in pump out mode. If voltage is present and motor does not spin - the motor is open circuit and must be replaced. Remove the 2 clamps and the 2 electrical push on terminals with the MAINS voltage disconnected. Is the outlet pipe not blocked or obstructed ?
