Question about Equator EZ 3600 CEE Front Load Washer / Dryer

2 Answers

Drum won't go back and forth on wash cycle

I performed test on electronic control module-ok. i replaced wash timer because machine working intermittent and would stop at rinse cycle.I would advance timer one click and washer would carry on till spin cycle and then I would find it necessary to advance timer to get it to spin. now washer won't wash-fills with water and sits there. If i advance timer it will pump water out fill and sometimes go into spin cycle. I have been nursing this puppy on for a year trying, testing, coaxing it to perform and now i can't see adding more money to buy a control module. The machine has worked well for us for 5 years and now i'm stuck on what to do next. The international answer is to buy a new machine-Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions.

    yes i have checked the motor, and the tub does spin, and does go back and forth on the dry cycle

  • andy8584 Jun 09, 2008

    I haven't checked the door latch sensor which is on the trouble shooting check list but it sure wouldn't spin if the door latch wasn't working.

I have a Miele W1918 washer that is getting stuck in the main wash cycle.


All washing machines have a pressure switch , it is a rubber tube leading into the outer drum and up to the switch, located up on the frame top rail under the lid, if this tube becomes blocked with dried detergent suds it wont function, gently pull of the rubber tube from the switch and suck and blow through if you can or push a piece of flexible electric wire through it then blow it again and reconnect and test.

DONT pull the tube out of the drum or you could have a leak, that\'s why I said GENTLY.



Good luck

Tip

No spin - tip for all washers.


Hi.

If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem. Before advancing to spin the timer board performs a test on drain part of the cycle, stops the drain and checks the door lock. Drain system, pressure switch and lid switch are all parts that if defective may cause no spin.

The first part to be tested is the drain system. This must be checked regardless of the fact that the pump is working. If there is blockage, residual water in the drain system or water flowing back from drain hose may cause the washer not detecting that drain is complete, and not advancing to spin.

Disconnect power and check the drain system, accessing drain filter and hose connected to the drain pump.
In most front loaders this is accessed removing the trim at the base of the front side of the appliance (under the door), and rotating the filter cap counterclockwise. The filter should be located behind the trim at the base of the washer.
Top loader usually offer access to pump either from back or from the bottom of the appliance. In some case (eg.Kenmore top load) you have to lean the machine forware to gain access to the bottom part of the unit, where the pump is located.

After opening the pump hose cover be prepared to collect a good amount of water. Keep a container at hand. Ensure that power is not connected before starting.

Also double check drain hose at the back of the appliance, and check that the elbow height is as prescribed in manual. Incorrect drain hose settings may result in syphoning, that means water is flowing back from drain hose into the washer tube. This may result in no spin.

After performing the check on the drain system test washer again. Sometimes removing eventual blockage in drain pump may fix this kind of problem.

If the pump is draining, but drain doesn't complete, and if there is no blockage in drain lines, a parts that may be causing the no-spin problem are pressure switch and door latch switch.

The door latch switch is checked by electronic control before advancing to spin. The door switch is tested running a cycle with the door switch contacts jumped. If the model has a lock motor more testing is needed. In that case the switch is tested ensuring that the lock motor impedance reads according to specifications and energizing the lock motor.

If the drain stops always at same point and cycle does not advance replace also the pressure switch. The pressure switch detects water level and determines when drain is over and when to advance to spin. This part is difficult to test in full, the part is not expensive and it is usually replaced without testing. Pressure switch is a common failure causing no spin. If drain is OK, then either pressure switch or lid switch/lock system is usually responsible.

If the above is OK , with top loaders you need to add to the list the problems related to motor and transmission. In front loaders, check problems related to motor and motor control unit. Such problems will be near to the end of the troubleshooting list. Check them before deciding to replace the electronic control.

If all the other parts are OK, what remains is the electronic control module (CCU). The CCU is rarely causing no spin. A defective electronic control module usually results in an error message being prompted, or in the machine not working at all. The part is tested in full reading volts while the machine is operating. In some case it is possible to find a faulty CCU by visually inspecting the board or by testing the module at component level.

For safety reasons some of the operations proposed in the tip are suitable only for a trained technician. Always ensure that power is turned off while inspecting and maintaining the appliance.

Good luck

Wwont agitate


In the circuit there is a module that works the agitation of the machine . It is an electronic device that moves the motor back and forth producing the agitation and is not connected to any other operation. Have it checked by a washing machine mechanic for failure.

Hi.

If the machine is filling up, then cycling and draining, the problem is usually the belt. The belt is reached disassembling the appliance . If the belt is OK the problem is usually the motor or the motor control unit, which is a sealed electronic module connected to motor and to control board and located inside the washer. If the motor has volts and does not turn, then the motor must be replaced. In some less common case the control module itself may be responsible. Motor assembly and belt are located at the back of the drum and get accessed disassembling top and back of the washing machine.

If the machine does not go through the cycle, but it starts draining from start, then the problem is overfill detected. In that case check the drain system, the drain hose, the inlet valve and the pressure switch.

Regards.

There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

Hi,

Immediate thought was the belt but you already checked that. Reading your message, you seem to be indicating the washer goes through the wash cycle and does everything except turn the drum, i.e. it fills and drains and the timer control knob advances as you would expect. This machine has an electro-mechanical timer rather than electronic, so if it advances through the program correctly, I would exclude this from my initial checks, but I'd still come back to it later.

Washing machines aren't that complicated, so if all of the above is true, the obvious assumption would be the drive motor. You've obviously opened up the machine to check the belt, so have you tested the motor with an ohm / multi-meter?

Please confirm the correct operation of the timer and whether you have tested the motor and I will try to assist you further. I check messages regularly, so if you post back here I should reply fairly quickly. Make sure you reply from within this page - don't post a new help request!

Regards,
BElectric

Washer agitates so vigorously water sloshes out of the overflow tube on large,extra large and super cycles. Tub slams back an forth on agitate cycle is this normal?


sounds like to much water check diaphram switch this controls the amont of water taken in this is not normal operation also check that the drum dampers are working ok or have not come adrift, when empty if you was to push the drum back and forth you should feel quite a bit of resistance if it moves easly then i would check the dampers

Washing machine will not complete spin cycle


OK, what you are experiencing is a timer mechanism fault. the timer motor is malfunctioning. anytime you have to manually advance the timer knob, this will signal a fault within the control mech. this is easily fixed by, replacing the timer control module. i will place a link to the actual part needed to fix this issue. you can also purchase this timer on line at this site if you wish.
