Hoover Washer Circuit diagram and operational detail

I inadvertently disconnected 3 leads from the rotary switch panel on a Model 204MOAUS Commodore washer, and can't replace without a diagram. I was investigating why during the spin cycle the agitator spins anticlockwise at top speed but the bowl only lazily spins and can be stopped with one finger! The solenoid and dog clutch operate OK but it seems to me that the motor should run in the opposite direction to run both agitator and bowl together at the same speed.

Can you help with a diagram and advice on the spin, please?

My car starts an runs but the radiator fan is not coming on and it over heats fast. But the warning lights don't pop up on the dash board


f the engine shows signs of overheating, stop and look to see if the fan is working. With the type operated by the Connect the motor feedterminal to the live terminal onthe battery.

Check a fan motor for faults

Fan motor with the thermo-switch lead disconnected and test lead connected to the battery.Look at the battery, and take off the wiring terminals to the motor or disconnect the plug. Free the wires from clips or other fixings on the fan
A new motor is supplied without a fan, which must be refitted from the old one.The motor and fan normally come off as an assembly, but you may also have to remove the shroud and sometimes the radiator.
Separate the components. Clean the parts that are to be reused, simply by degreasing or even by repainting.
Checking the new motor When you fit a replacement motor, check it by connecting its leads directly to the battery. Be sure to connect the positive (+) and negative (-) leads to the corresponding battery terminals.Take care - the motor will kick as it starts and there will be a large spark when it is connected.
Checking the switch for faults A thermo-switch with push-on connections. The switch is threaded and has a sealing washer which must be renewed.If the fan motor is not at fault, leave the ignition switched on, take the connections off the thermo-switch and briefly touch them together.
If the fan motor now works, the switch is faulty. If it does not, check to see that there is current flowing to the switch by using a circuit tester on the feed wire to the thermoswitch.
Touch the leads together to bypass the switch.If the tester does not light, trace the lead from the thermo-switch back to its power supply; the car handbook may have a wiring diagram
A detailed drawing showing the location of electronic components and devices that are connected together in a circuit.
.If the tester lights, trace the lead from the thermo-switch through to the relay and check the terminals for tightness and cleanliness. Clean and tighten as necessary. Changing a thermo-switchThe thermo-switch is normally located in the radiator bottom tank, in the How to flush an engine radiator) until the coolant is below the level at which it is fitted. Catch the coolant in a clean container if you plan to reuse it. If a rubber cover is fitted over the back of the switch, ease it off, then disconnect the electrical connections.
The switch can now be unscrewed from its mounting point with an appropriate spanner. It may, however, be very tight, so take care not to distort the surrounding metal if it is fitted in the radiator bottom tank. Always fit a new sealing washer.
Checking the relay for faultsWith the ignition switched on, short-circuit the thermo-switch by putting a screwdriver across its two terminals; do not disconnect the leads. You may be able to hear a click from the relay as it operates. Test for current with a test lamp or circuit tester at the 'live' lead to the relay - again with the ignition switched on.
If there is current here but, when the thermo-switch is bypassed, none at the terminal for the fan-motor lead, the relay is faulty and must be replaced.
Checking the T-piece On the Datsun Cherry the thermoswitch and connections are in a T-piece on the bottom radiator hose, so look there if the switch is not on the radiator.

How do I replace water level pressure switch on a GE top load washer?


Hi.

This solution is listed for the GE WBB4500EWW Top Load Washer model. The procedure also applies to others GE top load washing machine model

Replacing the water level pressure switch is not a difficult operation. Here the guidelines.

  • Disconnect the washer from power. Either unplug the power cord or trip the circuit breaker.
  • Pull out the appliance and place it in a space where you can work.
  • Disconnect the water hoses .located at the back of the appliance
  • Removethe four screws that hold the top panel to the body of the machine andpull up the top panel. Be careful while lifting the top panel, itsedges are sharp and you may get harmed.
  • Disconnect connectorfrom the water level pressure switch. Disconnect also the connectorshooked to the water valve solenoid contacts if necessary to access thewater level pressure switch.Always mark the connections with tape andlabels or take a picture before disconnecting the wires. The pressureswitch has only a two wires connector attached, and wires orientationdoes not matter, but get used to note down all disconnected wires.
  • Remove the clamp holding the hose and disconnect the vacuum hose from the water level switch.
  • To remove the pressure switch, push down the metal tab on the rear panel plate and rotate the old switch until it gets loose.
  • Installthe new water level pressure switch by following operations in reverseorder. Ensure that all hoses are well connected, and that all wiringconnectors are in place.
Replacing the water pressure switch is not a difficult operation, however remember to observe strictly all safety prescriptions.
Before replacing the switch you can try blowing into the vacuum hoseattached to the pressure switch, this sometimes can fix an apparentlyfaulty pressure switch.

Before replacing the switch this can be tested either jumping itscontacts, or using a multimeter to read Ohms on switch contacts, andcheck if the switch is opening and closing the contact. With nopressure applied to vacuum hose the switch must have continuity and lowimpedance, otherwise the switch is faulty.

If you have no technical training, and if you do not have done any similar repair before, then it may be better calling a technician. To get an on site qualified technician, ring GE at the number listed on your use and care manual.

The water pressure switch is part nr. ten on the diagram shown below. Click on the picture to enlarge the diagram:

My hoover commodore A6590 is not allowing cold water entre the machine


Possible that the inlet valve is choked , clogged or faulty. You need to check the power to the valve when the washer is switched on, if there is no power the control panel is faulty and if there is power and no flow inwards then the valve must be removed and cleaned. If there is no result the valve must be replaced.
check this link: inlet valve.

MODEL 110-24722300 KENMORE WASHER. LID SWITCH DOES NOT WORK AND HAS COME LOOSE. HOW DO I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11024722300/0582/0153200?pathTaken=

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=913ba652cd504fb162f87d892bcb427b

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet. See the Sears diagrams on the control panel and cabinet to see where / how the switch connects.

Machine will drain water. no spin or rinse cycle.checked agitator dogs ok. what esle can i check?


If the water pumps out, it is not the lid switch. Will it agitate in both the wash and rinse with just no spin? The motor reverses direction and might be it needs replaced. Will need more information though

Washer spins out but will not fill or agitate


You most likely have a bad timer. If machine is filling properly, then the switch is bad.


Servicing the Timer

Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

Circuit Breakers Comparison


A circuit breaker is an automatically-operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload or short circuit. Unlike a fuse, which operates once and then has to be replaced, a circuit breaker can be reset (either manually or automatically) to resume normal operation.
