Splendide 2000S Washer/dryer won't wash/dry. Noise then stops, then dial clicks around endlessly.


sounds very much like the bearing has seized on the drum.
can you turn it by hand?
I'm betting it's either stuck or REALLY stiff

Dryer won't spin


Someone is going to have to get inside to see if the belt (it should have one around the drum) is broken or the motor that drives it is seized, etc.

Need to see if drum turns and if too freely my money would be the belt.

Drum wont rotate at all


You mean it won't turn as in it is stuck? Or is it that the motor won't come on to turn it? Check door switch. Does dryer have power to it at all? Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

Dear sir, We want to buy 02 nos of whirlpool make 8.5 kg washer 02 nos and one nos of dryer. We need the same for our factry on contineous operation so we want the best...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

I understand you want a whirlpool washer. What are you washing? It does make a difference on what would be recommended. The other question is does it have to be a front load machine or is a top loading washer ok?

Right off the top of my head for an 8.5 kg washer I would recommend the top loading MAT Series by Maytag (owned by Whirpool) These manual timer machines can take a beating and over loading only causes belt wear that is inexpensive and easy to replace. The only drawback is that the top loading machines use more water per cycle than a front loading machine. My thought is this... water is cheap... smaller front loading commercial machines used in continuous manner end up costing you more in repairs than you would pay for the water.

Product info: http://www.maytagcommerciallaundry.com/on_premiseslaundry/top_load_washers/commercial_energy_advantage__8482__top_load_washer_mat15mnaww.pro?scr=category

Once you see the linked pages select "on premises lanudry"

What I will tell you about commercial laundry machines is this. Keep the controls simple such as the MAT series. Maintenance parts are available on line and your down time will be minimal. The Maytags have the best warranty also.

As for the dryer Gas or electric? I am going to assume electric since you said "Factory"
For this I would recommend the MDE17 series Dryers, The dryers are 4 roller drum type dryers so the weight is carried equally front and rear of the drum so that the drum seals have a very long life.

I have been a Maytag repairman since 1970 and started in a family owned business. These recommendations are from years of experience. You may pay more up front on the initial purchase but over the years the continued in service time and minimal maintenance required make these units extremely cost effective. If I were to start my own business with 8.5 Kg per cycle washing requirements The MAT Washers and MDE Dryers Maytags are exactly what I would use.

Remember Maytag was purchased by Whirlpool years ago.
All Maytag parts can be obtained through Whirlpool.
I do wish you the best, Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My kenmore HD60 series dryer drum does not turn.


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Grease type substance inside


Hello. I know exactly what is wrong with your dryer.

If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.


Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL
