Hotpoint WMD960 F18 error code

I had the F18 fault.Nothing much worked except drain pump.
Simple solution for me was:
1)disconnect power 2)take off top of machine(2screws at rear) 3)locate the connector which fits on the rear of the main led display panel.4) Pull it off, squirt switch cleaner and replace with plenty of wiggling! 5) Put it back together and start washing !

1 question can Cutler Hammer breakers have the amperage feed through the breakers. To the breaker box and from the box grid to the load. Does it matter which way the amperage is fed through the breaker?...

There seem to be several questions mingled in with those 2 questions.

1) Amps can go either way

2) Breakers trip when heat exceeds certain level. Heat is caused by amps.

3) You want to add a subpanel in garage.
I do not know the code in your area for installing a subpanel.
Your plan will work by connecting 6 gauge wire to main breaker, and new 60 amp breaker will protect wires between main box and subpanel.
Remember, wires going into main breaker cannot be turned off without pulling meter.
Some areas require license to pull meter.

4) To work around license and meter-pull, simply replace a 240V breaker in main panel with your new 60 amp breaker.
Then move breakers around to match new set-up.
New subpanel can accommodate two new 240V breakers and one new 120 Breaker

5) 6 gauge wire is correct for 60 amp breaker.

6) I'm not sure what you mean by the box rails?

7) Do you need more amperage on main service?
This means adding a larger service panel with 150 Watt or 200 Watt main breaker.
Some areas require service upgrade when remodeling or adding circuits.

8) How to figure total amp draw at your house.
Add up total watts being used.
For example you have 1/2 Hp motor
754 watts per Hp
1/2 Hp = 377Watts
Volts x Amps = Watts
Amps = Watts divided by Volts.
377 Watts divided by 240Volts = 1.57 amps (plus a bit more amperage when motor starts)
40 watt light bulb divided by 120Volts = .33 amps
Double oven has label located inside door that shows upper and lower wattage.
Dishwasher, dryer, big screen TV, satellite receiver all have labels that show wattage.
Water heater has label that shows wattage of each element.

Treadmill stopped. panel still working - showing info.

The motor controller weakens over time because of the excessive amperage draw of the motor do to lack of lubrication (which wears the walk belt and walking deck).

Take an amperage reading of the motor it should be 2-3 amps with no one on it, with someone walking on it it should be around 6-12 amps. I would bet yours is elevated above 6-12 amps.The controller is dropping output because of the friction problem.

The first thing to try after testing the amperage is to lubricate the walking platform. Then retest and see if the amperage comes down and it doesn't shut off.

If it does then the next step would be to replace the walking deck. If the amperage still is up you may need to replace the walk belt second and finally if after replacing the deck and belt, if the unit is still shutting down replace the motor controller.

(if u have cd sound card driver do it while cd software inserted)

or reinstalling your sound card device software

open control panel-->double click add new hardware icon and follow instruction if ask are conected with the hardware click yes then next.. that way wil show u waht sound card type of yours -->
note : the "?" icon is the hardware need to a driver and not yet be installed..

With all DC systems on no negative Ah readings

The shunt needs two (2) wires coming from it to your amp meter. If the meter reads backwards polarity, reverse the shunt leads.

Your alternator should put plenty of voltage out at an idle, you might take it out and have it checked.
Most local parts houses have the equipment to check them without charging you.
If the alt is not working your car will run until the battery goes dead and alot of cars wont run without a charged battery and alternator not working.
You might also have a problem with the voltage regulator, or I should say that that is where your problem may lay.
Good luck

Use a DMV (AKA Digital Volt Meter) or an Analog Volt Meter) to check the polarity of the plug. Not sure how to use a meter? Plug the red lead into the center post of the adapter and touch the black lead to the outside ring. With a DMV it should show a positive voltage if the center post is Positive or negative voltage if the center is Negative. With an analog meter (red - center) positive voltage, (black - center) the needle tries to swing to the left of 0 volts. Being 12VDC don't worry about being shocked the voltage and current is low enough that if you were to get shocked it feels like a little tingle and is direct current not an alternating current (AC) which if handled improperly will cause your heart to stop. Remenber it's not the voltage that kills, it's the amount of amperage. (12VDC 3A -- AC Adapter) vs. (12VDC 700A -- Car Battery) Car battery wins !!! You can weld metal with a car battery but not with the AC adapter. Rule of thumb, You can always under supply the amperage just not over supply it except with fuses. Fuses were designed to limit the amount of amperage that the circuit can handle. Putting a smaller amperage fuse might get by for awhile,but will blow instantly during a power spike. Replacing with a higer amperage fuse will not allow the fuse to blow and cause the circuitry to overload and cause a fire. (Bad !!!!! Do not ever do this).

Hopes this helps.
