Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I bought my Sharp ES-FG55 washing machine 5 years ago. A few months ago, the wash cycle stopped turning, even though it made the sound of the motor running full power. The spin drier still works fine and so I have been handwashing and using the spinner, while thinking what to do... For ecological and economical reasons I hate to trash the machine so soon, and hesitate to ask a local electrician for an opinion, as I know he will only say---forget about it and get a new model... Isn't 5 years a little short for a respectable product?

SOURCE: washer make a clicking noise

Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.

SOURCE: SPIN CYCLE WON"T WORK ON WASHING MACHINE...HELP!

It appears your lid switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

it could be the motor controller. this part is resposable to drive the motor and other components like the electric pump. there is a chance that the combination of motor-controller be bad. try the controller first. is the most common to go out.

You have one of the best washers ever made... It is called a "Direct Drive" by us technicians.

My Sharp Washing Machine ES-6515TS still drains even if the drain control is already closed and sometimes water goes out to the spinners tub.


PROBABLY THERE ARE THINGS THAT BLOCKING THE DRAIN, IT MIGHT BE COINS, PARTS OF CLOTHES, PANTY OR HANKY. SIMPLY OPEN THE BACKSIDE OF YOUR WASHING MACHINE, UNSCREW THE DRAIN LINE COUNTER CLOCK WISE TO OPEN THE VALVE FOR DRAIN. YOU'LL BE AMAZED OF THINGS PRESENT INSIDE THE DRAIN VALVE. AFTER THAT IT WILL BE OK FOR YEARS. I BROKE MY SPIN DRY MOTOR AND RUBBER BELOUSE, FUSE 3X. SHARP TECHNICIAN CAN'T FIND THE PROBLEM WHICH I DID AFTER 5 YEARS. I HOPE IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO YOU.---ROMMEL OF MANILA PHILIPPINES.---rtlagasac@hotmail.com

Washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut


Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.



Hope That Helped;

sounds like it could be the transmission. Does the tub turn when you turn the pulley in either direction with your hand? And take the belt off see if the motor turns when you close the lid and turn it on without the belt??

Whirlpool washer won't spin even though motor is running


Sounds like the the motor belt is worn or off. Try a new belt, or check the drain pump filter for clogs.
If you've got a handy friend, it's easy to check these... remove the back of the washer (about 12 srews) and check for black dust inside, or a belt hanging or lying on the bottom.
To check the drain pump filer screen, look for the drain hose, follow it into the back of your washer and down to a plastic bow looking unit. There should be a round cover with a kind of handle on it. remove the cover, (water may run out... have a few towels handy) clean off lint etc. and put back together. Try again...
