Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool washing machine (awm 5060-600) model that stops working after few miutes of working, I called the repair man from the dealer who checked the machine and told me that the main board controller is damaged. I took out the controller and I took it for test they told me it's seem to be good but check other parts of the machine that might make an overlaod, so I took out the motor but it came with 6 lines and I w'd like to know how to test it.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washer AWM 5060. First

You must start from the begining to check on the inlet valve and the flow of water to the drum. If the flow is not present check or change valve if the power is present. However if water flows well then check the voltage to the motor is the trigger/switching comes from the controller unit. If absent the controller unit needs a check. If present the motor is faulty. If so the motor starter capacitor is faulty. Look to find this capacitor and change, If the motor is humming this is for sure.
Hope my tip helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
May I also suggest you try the manufacturer's web site direct?
Good luck,
John C.

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.
