Motor not working

Hey Master Tech,

You seem knowledgeable in this area. Fixing the unit for a friend, won't agitate or spin, put my volt meter on the harness which attaches to the motor and it appears that the motor is not getting any power. Does this unit allow the washer to agitate with the lid up? I can probably check the lid switch too. But otherwise it seems that the problem is probably with the master switch up top? Thoughts? And do you know where I can get a wiring diagram for this unit can know what wires do what on the switch?

Any help would be appreciated. my email is bbierenga@brooksidecrc.org

tks!

p.s. my unit is actually a 3100 not a 3120

No agitation or spin? try these:

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

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate 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, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate 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.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate 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 or agitate 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.

Fws445rfs0 wont agitate


To test motor, test directly,

1. take a small battery, a 6-Volt / 12-volt, maybe,
2. remove the starter motor
3. connect leads, positive to positive and negative to negative through a switch.
4. Close switch and see if the motor comes on.

Describe your 24032 \ 24036 Top Load Washer Problem changed the motor coupler and now the motor won't work. washer fills up but won't agitate or spin or drain


Sounds as if your lid switch is open. You can by pas it under the control panel on the right in the back it is a the wire plug. Connect the black and brown on the switch side which will allow you to just plug a new one when or if you deciced you needed this "safety" feature. Do not put any part of your body in machine while spinning. Your welcome, Masta tech.

WON'T SPIN


If your washing machine isn't spinning or agitating in either the delicate or the regular cycle, investigate each of these areas as a possible cause to the problem: the Selector Switch, the Clutch Assembly, or the Drive Motor. Check out this link to PartSelect.com http://www.partselect.com/washing-machine+no-spin-agitate+repair.htm it will tell you how to test each of these areas!

Washer will spin but won't agitate and it "puts the brakes on" when finished spinning


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.This unit spins in one direction for spin and the other for agitate. If its not agitating and the motor is running then the trans failed. Some of these have a ten year trans and labor warranty. Go to maytag site and put in your model and serial and check the warranty.And the brakes on this unit are pretty quick to stop.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

On spin cycle, the drum will not spin


You have a bad coupling. It is between the transmission and the motor.

The tub that holds the clothes does not spin. The water goes in and it takethe soap and softner but will not spin. The timer works and it seems to go through the cycles and fillls and emptys but the tub...


I've only seen one of these belts break in my 7 years of fixing Neptune's. I have replaced dozens of motor/ motor control board kits. Maytag upgraded the washer motors about 5 years ago, if yours is older it's probably got the older style motor. If that's the case you need to verify that the motor control board is getting power from the main control board, if it is, then you need to replace both the motor and motor control board (it comes as a kit). If it isn't you need to put 120 volts to the motor control board and see if the motor spins at 50 rpm (normal agitate speed), if it does, you just need the main control board, if it still doesn't run you need the main board and the motor/ motor control kit. If it has the newer motor, you would also need to test and replace the motor and/ or the motor control board separetly.
