I have an old homelite brush king that all of a sudden won't spin the blade under a load. When there's no load it runs fine. ?? Any suggestions where to begin.

Sounds like a clutch problem. IF it is, you need to disassemble the tube shaft from the power head to get to it.Normal operation is just the opposite of what your machine is doing.

If it runs fine without the blades, it would certainly suggest that the blades are causing the problem. Replacements can be found at shaveroutlet.com at the links below

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement because it is struggling. It is not uncommon to find that the brushes are worn sufficiently for them to not make perfect contact with the commutator at the higher speeds- bouncing and sparking. Now, a word or two of advice from this retired Englishman in SW France. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the commutator (like the worn ones!), often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
The choice of course is entirely up to you- but do not forget that it is not an uncommon fault, especially if the washer is not exactly new. Others I have given this advice to have chosen new brushes and I don't blame them!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

the inner shaft could have broken, which is the case a lot when using the blade vs the string remove the shaft from the motor, and spin the inner rod and see if the blade turns, if it does check the end of the rod and see if its damaged in anyway , if the blade doesn't spin, the shaft has broken and will need replacement

The spinning thing won't spin all of a sudden. The washer is making a lot of noise and will drain but won't spin. How do you take the back off?


The motor has a double pole on it. The pump is driven on one side of the motor. The basket is driven on the other end of the motor. So if the water is pumped out then the lid switch is fine. What you have is a broken drive coupler. Usually breaks on a heavy load like rugs or quilts. Low water on a heavy load can break it too. Or simply old age.

Hi LG WD 1433rd wont spin up to speed. Have replaced hall sensor as a LE code came up. What do I replace next??


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'won't spin up to speed'- does that mean that it stays running at the normal slow speed? If so it could be motor OR control board.
If it is just struggling then it does sound as if the motor requires replacement, particularly noticeable when called upon to run the spin cycle. It is not uncommon to find that the brushes are worn sufficiently for them to not make perfect contact with the commutator at the higher speeds- bouncing and sparking. Now, a word or two of advice from this retired Englishman in SW France. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run.

DW718 miter saw. The blade rotates but does not cut once it makes contact with any resistance. It is as if a cotter pin is broken. How do you repair the problem and what parts would I need. Was working...


I have 8 differant saws but not a dewalt and have not ever heard of or seen a shear pin on a drive shaft of a motor its a stright shot through the motor to the brushes and there is no gearing or reduction box I would say check the blade connection and washer assembly or the end bearing on the shaft may be worn out and binding under a load. Dose the blade spin true or can you wiggle it from side to side and feel play in the bearing I soppose it could also be some kind of electrical issue where something is shorting under load but that would still bring me back to movement in the shaft that is binding the motor.

Homelite ut-10942-a chain stops under load


Could be the internals of the clutch have been heavily oiled--wash out with carburetor cleaner from an auto parts store. The internals of the clutch expand to the internal rim of the clutch housing when things rev up. Oil blocks the necessary friction needed between those parts. Make sure the chain sprocket is attached firmly to the clutch housing.

Weather king central air conditioner


You have done a good job under the circumstances. It could be a bad start/run capacitor as well. It carries a lot of amperage so I suggest hiring a technician to check the capacitor and the motor.
