No fast spin at end of cycle


You may have burned up the motor's starter windings. About the time it eases up to speed, the motor overheats, and shuts off. Five or so minutes later, the overheat switch resets and it attempts to start the spin cycle over.

these machines can get seized bearings, which can stop the bowl from turning at full speed. probably the motor after this.the clutch should affect full spin speed only if it's worn. this fault can be a timer issue also.

Motor humms but wont engage


The start capacitor or start winding has gone bad. Or bearings are dry.
Don't run motor if it does not rotate full speed or motor will overheat and go bad.
Replace or repair motor.

Each motor has 2 winding circuits.
Start winding and run winding.
Both windings receive power same time.
Start winding has capacitor that releases sudden burst of electricity that starts motor rotation. Kind of like low speed on transmission.
Run winding then brings motor up to speed.

What powers the cooling fan motors my ac is not cooling properly the motors come on, but they are not turning fast enough. got straight power to motors, they both work ok.


you may find that the cooling fans only run at half speed when the a/c is on they might be set that way & run at full speed when the engine starts to overheat (in stop & go traffic) the a/c may need regassing that's why it is not cooling properly.....hope this helps...... cheers..

Dishwasher runs for appx 14 min & stops washing half way thru wash cycle. Timer contunies to run. No drain pump out (nothing). Let dishwasher set idle for appx 1 hour and it will re-set. Set timer...


This sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump. You can remove the inner cover to look for obstructions. You have a dual purpose motor it does the both circulating and draining. The blockage is causing it to overheat and trip the thermal protector. You can remove the drain assembly from underneath if you don't find anything from above. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that walks you thru most of this. It is a different model but pretty close.If you find no obstructions the motor may be failing.

Spin half the speed


Hi.

Depending on the make and model, and type of washer, you may need to test and eventually replace the following parts:


On top loads:


Variable speed motor .
Motor coupler.
Transmission.
Control board.
Motor control unit (if present)


On front load :


Variable speed motor .
Motor coupler.
Control board.
Motor control unit.


On top load the problem is often transmission or variable speed motor. On front load MCU or motor.
