Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have a Hoover Zodiac12 2-speed reversible motor i want to use for a home project. Its a Nuova Ibmei with 5 terminals. The wires are L to R and top to bottom; 1. black stripe, 2. blue, 3. yellow, 4. red and 5. orange. By disconnecting the wires while the machine is running i have deduced that wires 2 and 5 are for fast spin and wires 3 and 4 are for slow spin. Wire 1 seems to be always active. Can anyone tell me how to wire this for one speed fast operation? I dont have a wiring diagram so its a bit tricky

You will destroy the motor by running it with multiple speeds tied together. So be careful. Just try and get it to work with 2 wires and tape the others off away from each other and the frame so they won't short anything out. I have a Hoover Zodiac12 - themobilian_795.jpg

I am replacing a intermatic t101r with a tightwatt timer. the t101r has 5 terminals wired, the tightwatt only has 4


Hello Barbara.
You dont have T101R timer. Because T101 has 3 terminals.
Remember any Intermatic timer can be replaced into the T101 enclosure.
First step, Identify your voltage.
Second step, identify if you are controlling a 2-speed pump.
Third step, identify the Intermatic timer by looking at clock motor and wiring.

T101R timer has 3 terminals, and has WG1570 120Volt clock motor.
T103R timer has 5 terminals and WH1570 120Volt clock motor
T104 timer and T106R timer have 5 terminals and WG1573 240Volt clock motor
Copy following link to help identify your specific wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Terminal A on Intermatic could be Neutral or Hot depending on what has been done to alter the timer.
Generally the tightwatt timer wires very similar to P1353 timer.

How i can do the instalation


1) Need more information.
Heres some help to get you started, then you add a comment and fill in details so I can give accurate answer.

2) You posted under Paragon 7008-00 timer.

3) People post under Paragon when they have Tork, so I need exact model number and what voltage you have and what Load you are trying to wire.

4) Also what terminals appear on timer, since any timer can be in a box that is marked 7008.
Then add what color wires you have coming from breaker box, what size breaker, and if same breaker is going to supply voltage to timer and to Load, and what color wires are going to Load.

5) Open following link to identify timer for sure, and see manual and wiring diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#7000

6) Typical wiring diagram for 7008 showing one set of NO NC terminals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Paragon-7008-00-timer-wiring-350.jpg

7) 7008 timer has 120Volt clock motor. So power to terminals A and B has to be 120V.
But timer can still control 120V or 240V loads.

8) According to manual, 7008 timer has 2 NO (normally open) terminals that are OFF when timer is OFF
Timer also has 2 NC (normally closed) terminals that are ON when timer is OFF

9) Both sets of terminals reverse when timer turns ON.

10) NO and NC terminals are frequently used for continuous-operation 2-speed motors, for example.
You do not want power to both speeds at same time, or motor will burn out. So low speed is connected to NO terminal, and high speed is connected to NC terminal. This way the motors windings are kept separate, and either low speed is ON or high speed is ON.

11) Another example of NO NC terminals could be store lighting. When store closes, the timer turns off exit signs and store-room lights inside store, and at same moment timer turns on burglar alarm and outdoor lights. In this example the timer controlled 4 different circuits: exit signs, store-room, alarm, and outdoor lights. With 2-NO and 2-NC terminals, that is possible.

How do I connect wiring and do programming for P1353 timer for my 2 speed pool pump? Thanks,


P1353 is a very complicated for beginner.
Open following link for manual: P1353 starts on Page 25
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-P1353-manual.pdf

Following steps are general introduction.
You can add a comment about specific steps.

1) Select timer voltage: see page 26 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/P1353-voltage-selection-100.jpg
Timer can control 120V or 240V circuits.
P13553 default voltage for clock motor is 240V.
If circuit breaker that supplies power to timer is 240V, then no change is needed.
If circuit breaker that supplies power to timer is 120V, then change jumper on back of timer to 120.
Timer mechanism snaps out of box using thumb spring located top inside box.

2) Wiring
Open link to see general wiring for P1353:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/P1353-timer-350.jpg
-Bare ground wires connect to green screw

-Line wires are power wires from circuit breaker.
For example Line wires are 240Volt, and there is 1 black wire and 1 white
Black connects to terminal 1
White connects to terminal 2
Add a jumper wire (short piece of same-gauge wire) from terminal 1 to terminal 3
Add a second jumper wire from terminal 3 to terminal 5
This will put power to clock motor and put power to switches

-Load wires go to 2-speed pump: see wiring diagram page 28
There are 3 Load wires for 2-speed pump: Usually these wires are: Black for speed-1, Red for speed-2, and White
Black speed-1 connects to terminal 6
Red speed-2 connects to terminal 4
White motor wire connects to terminal 2 to complete circuit to motor.

3) Programming.
-Manual shows specific programming starting on page 27.
Timer has 3 circuits. Each circuit is independent of other circuit, making this a 3-channel timer.

-Select different MODES when programming timer
Select MODE 2: circuit 1 and circuit 2 will never be ON at same time, which is intended for 2-speed pump operation.

-Programming steps start on page 30 where you select MODE 2
Actual programming steps are straightforward

-Add a comment if you have difficulties and I will answer.
Also contact Intermatic directly if you encounter a glitch:

How do I connect my 2 speed pool motor?


1) You might need a different timer.
240Volt T106 has one NO terminal and one NC terminal.
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t106r%20-%20english.ashx

2) Terminal 1 is NC terminal
NC terminal is 'normally closed' so electricity flows continually through this terminal.
For example you can connect this terminal to speed-1.
So speed-1 is on until timer turns on, and then electricity is turned off to NC terminal and speed-1 stops.

3) Terminal 4 is NO terminal
NO terminal is 'normally open' so electricity flows through this terminal only when timer turns on.
For example you can connect this terminal to speed-2.
So NO terminal only has power when timer turns on.
When timer turns off, NO terminal turns off and NC terminal turns on again.

4) As you can see, the problem with T106 timer is that pool motor is continually running.
Either speed-1 is on, or speed-2 is on.

5) Here's how to wire T106 for 240V two-speed pump:
Two hot wires arrive from breaker box: 1 black wire and 1 white wire.
White connects to terminal A
Black connects to terminal 3.
Three wires go to motor.
Speed-1 connects to terminal 1 probably black wire
Speed-2 connects to terminal 2 probably red wire
Remaining motor wire connects to terminal A probably white wire
Ground wires connect to green ground screw.

6) Usually, 2-speed pool pumps are wired to dual timer like T10404R
So each speed is wired to a separate timer.
With this timer, each speed is connected to separate timer, and then the pump can be turned off when neither speed is needed.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-2-Speed-Timer-208-277-T10404R/dp/B002UBPCDW/ref=pd_sim_sbs_hi_1

7) However there is a newer electronic timer P1353ME and P1353ME-6 and PE153 that can control 3 different loads. This timer snaps into any T106 box.
For example speed-1 is one load, speed-2 is another load, and a pool light can be third load, or simply do not use third load.

http://1000bulbs.com/product/3352/ELEC-PE153.html

8) I am familiar with wiring and programming for P1353 timer, and you can post again on fixya, and I will catch the question.

Need to reverse polarity


the two poles on this type of motor are for high and low voltage (series and parallel connection) there is no polarity on a.c.(alternating current) motors. if the motor is reversable (an option on some motors) then ther will be a terminal strip in the electrical connection box with jumpers usualy interchanging wires #5 AND #9

Hoover hpe236 drum doesn't turn during wash cycle


Watch the motor when it is supposed to be running. If nothing, measure for voltage across the brushes and across the motor power terminals. Make sure the motor will turn freely by hand. If power is present, there may be an open wire to either the field winding or one of the brushes.

3 speed switch wiring schmatic


On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3
