Why does everything get hot except electrosurge wire tip for cutting?


A couple of possibilities:
1. Remove the belt. While using the foot pedal it is necessary to see if the motor moves freely without excess heat. If there is a problem the motor must be replaced or fixed.
2. Try to turn the machine without the motor attached by using the hand wheel. Does it move freely? If this is a problem the part that is causing the resistance must be found. Especially check the hook (under the bobbin case), needle arm and monitor moving parts.
3. Is the belt in good shape? If it is not so good then replace it.
4. While the belt is attached the motor must be cocked to allow the least resistance and most speed while the motor is running. This must be done carefully while the motor is running slowly. (foot control) The adjustment can be done most accurately this way.
5. Clean and oil all moving parts.
6. Make sure the bulb is the right size and not touching any of the metal surfaces.

Maytag Dryer- Drum not rotating (belt and motor both work)


I surely do hope this fixes it all.
The pulley that fell apart is supposed to. Well, not quite. It is not fastened inside the machine, and comes off easily. It is the belt tensioner. It fits into 2 slots on the bottom steel panel of the machine (The base)
You will be finding it is a pain in the neck to put back on, but you can do so. The belt goes with the grooves toward the drum, not away from it. The belt goes in a S shape around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley. One you put the tensioner back in it's place nin the two slots, you will push (or pull) on it against the spring arm to "bend" it so as to get the belt back on.
Be blessed.

What is a code F on the machine? It stops washing


Hi,

The reason for "F" flash is that if your machine doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely if it's frozen or stiff replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


Thank you !!

Kenmore Washer Code F0 when it starts to drain


Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes:

* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness
begin troubleshooting right at the motor. Why start there? Because the motor is one of the prime suspects and it's easy to check. Remove the back panel and unwind the belt from the drum pulley. Now turn the motor pulley (sans belt) by hand. If it doesn't turn smoothly and easily, you have a bad motor.

If the motor pulley turns smoothly and easily by hand, next step is to run the motor with the belt still removed from the motor pulley. If the motor seems to run fine that way, put the belt back on and run it again. If the motor won't run under load (with the belt on), then that's another sign that the motor is bad.

Suppose the motor turns easily and freely by hand but won't run either with or without the belt. This is a more subtle condition because we're probably dealing with a bad MCU or flakey wire harness somewhere between the motor and MCU, or between the MCU and the CCU.

One trick that often works at this point is to remove and reinsert all wire connections at the board and motor. This tends to clean the small amount of corrosion that will build up on the connections. After you do this put the machine into a service cycle (see the instructions in the tech sheet found inside the unit or you can ). Part of the service cycle is running the motor at certain set speeds which checks the tach.


If you've removed/reinserted the wire harnesses and still no joy, then usually the problem is the MCU.

I have a 12 year old whirlpool washing machine model lxr7144eq0


To determine if the transmission caused the belt to wear, then unplug the washer, and looking up inside toward the transmission, note the large diameter pulley that the belt goes around. See if you can turn it by hand. It should turn freely in both directions.

This isn't a 100% guarantee that the transmission is good, but will give you an indication. Make sure the washer is at the end of it's cycle when trying this.

If it turns, replace the belt and see what happens. If it doesn't, make sure none of the solenoids are engaging the linkage, otherwise, you'll be trying to turn the drum or agitator.

Agitator stopped working


depending the age of the unit the lid switch can be bad if not that old take front panel off and the newer machines have a motor wit a control board on them with a light on it to give you error codes if it flashes one flash every few seconds the motor is fine but if the light flashes twice over and over again replace motor there is a tech sheet behind timer panel to tell ya the codes.as far as shavings the belt would be something to look in to
