Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My machine will start all programmes but only run for less than 10 seconds and then do nothing else at all. I have cleaned the filter and checked all connections at the back.

If you open the Soap box when you turn it on, does water come out in it? If not, check the following:

1) Is the tap open
2) Remove the inlet hose, and clean the filter between it and the connection.
3) If still not working, open the Top Panel, and you'll see that the inlet hose pipe goes to a solenoid connected to the outer soap box. Remove this solenoid, and connect live power (usually 110V or 220v, depending which country you live in). You should hear a clicking sound. If not, replace the Solenoid Inlet valve (Cheap)

The reason why I am saying to check these things in particular is because the first process your Washing Machine will go through when starting, is to let water in. If it doesn't it will stop and hang.

If water does come out in the soap box, then let me know and we will ponder away more :-)

Kind Regards

Hi there I have a spaform oslo.The problem I got is that the filtration sequence is running all the time the jets are constantly on speed 1. The Tub is up to temp I have no fault codes. Thanks Justin


make sure correct time is set on unit, then double check to see if filter cycles were ever change, follow manul instructions attached.

Filter Cycles
On all systems, the pump and the ozone generator will run during
filtration. At the start of each filter cycle, the blower [if
fitted] will run for 30 seconds to
clean out the air channels. Pump 2 and pump 3 [if fitted] will run for 5 minutes.
There are two filter cycles per day. The start/finish times of
each cycle are programmable. To program, follow the steps under
the heading
How to set the
time & filter cycles
on page 9, ensuring that you press
"Mode/Prog" to advance to the next setting option.
The factory default filter cycles are as follows:
The first filter cycle is automatically activated at
8:00AM and operates the pump until 10:00AM. The '
F1'
indicator icon on the control touchpad will be lit
when filter cycle 1 is running.
The second filter cycle is automatically activated at 8:00 PM
(20:00) and operates the pump until 10:00 PM (22:00). The
'F2'
indicator icon will light when
filter cycle 2 is running.

Dishwasher leaves baked on soap scum on al dishes and everything ....even on the dishwasher ...tried all kinds of soap and rinse aid...nothing works...cleaned entire washer out cleaned all filters...


I imagine you've already checked that you're using the correct amount of detergent for the wash programme, and that you're washing the correct quantity of dishes for the wash programme, though if not, try that first!

Is the dishwasher heating the water to the correct temperature? If it's not rinsing at a hot enough temperature, the detergent may leave a residue. In that case, your dishes would probably also be less than entirely clean; they could be slightly greasy when removed from the machine.

Another possibility is that insufficient water is supplied to the dishwasher, so it might be worth checking the tap that lets water through the hose and into the machine. Does the tap turn on fully? Does it turn off properly?

The other thing that might be worth trying is an empty wash: put the machine through a wash programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT dishes, at the programme with the highest temperature. Is all the soap scum washed away? Or is there still a residue inside the machine? If the empty wash works, you probably need to give your machine a maintenance wash once a month or so. This is often the case if you usually wash your dishes a few at a time on a short programme.

I hope some of that helps. Good luck!

Kenmore 868738000 Elect Dryer Starts for 10 minutes then stop.


That is gong to be a bad motor. $72.
Tools needed:
Putty knife
nut-drivers
screwdrivers
adjustable wrench

Notes:
Motor blower is reversed threads
Difficulty 1 to 10 = 3
Belt routing8ec45fd.jpg
Start by: removing filter and filter housing screws
then remove front panel screws LIFT UP on panel to remove it.
Remove belt remove tub. Get filter housing off
Clean up dryer. Lock down shaft and remove blower. Pop motor mount clips. Unplug motor. make hote of position f motor. Install new motor use nutdriver to snap down clips. I have the manual and some photos. In my sleep I can completely replace a motor in less than an hour and that includes oiling the rollers and idler and doing a through hoovering out the machine. This machine is worth replacing the motor and really a breeze to repair. Nothing has worked better for over 50 years. Go for it.

Zanussi washing machine won't start E10, E40 & E50 at times


It was suggested that the pump had failed and taken out the programmer with it - expensive! Wife wouldn't wait, and bought new machine. Problem almost solved - anyone want an out of order washing machine?
