Kitchenaid quiet scrub

I pulled a spinner out of a LG washer a month ago, it's a tuff job, lay the machine over on it's side, pull the back panel. you will just about take the machine completely apart. the water jacket and basket have to come out of the housing. I suggest that you mark all connectors, I usually take masking tape and put it across the two halves of the connection and label it 'a' or one, what ever makes you happy, then start disconnecting them one at a time checking if it has to come apart to relieve the barrel from frame. As you start taking bolts and springs apart it ends up being self teaching, but if you are not very well mechanically inclined, you will not be able to do this job. take pix of everything so it will be allot easier to put it back together again. Remember it's not Humpty Dumpty, and can be put back together again, I did and had never done it before, wallah. Questions,[email protected]

GE WPRE8100 washer starts to fill and immediately shuts off

I would suspect the washer control panel or timer is the problem.

Whirlpool wtw57esvw washer won't fill

I had the same problem, started filling right away, also when the wash cycle is done, the clothes are wet, it starts to fill again after spin cycle. I intended to buy a load sensing switch the next day, but it was $76 dollars. i removed the switch, gentley pryed it apart, there was 2 small thin brass/copper contact tabs, I bent them slightly to make better contact. I put the switch back together and reinstalled it, put the machine back together, and it has been 3 months with no problems.

Motor stopped during the mixing cycle. once it was turned off and the ice was further stirred, i tried to turn the motor back on. the light on the on/off switch lit up but the motor would not work. the...

What kind of ice cream maker is it? I just bought a Nostalgia Electric Double Flavor Ice Cream Maker and it did the same exact thing. I poured the salty ice water out in some containers, set it aside to use it again, took everything apart, and started over from the begining. I put it all back together properly again, added the salty ice water once more, and turned it on. It worked! I hope it does the same for you. If not, I would see about getting it looked at somehow.

Good luck! :)

Maytag neptune top loader-will not start

Hello tinagomez479,

Some basic questions for troubleshooting;
Your machine type is a FVA6800AW/FAV9800AW correct?

Any errorcodes to the console?

Can you tell me what this action was for? “”We took it apart and cleaned it and put it back together and it worked good for about 5 loads then the water stopped draining and now it won't start again.”” Was this a Clutch clean up for dc/UC errors?

Does the clicking noise come from the console area like relays clicking or down below where the clutch pulley is located?

When you press the start button do the lid locks lock the lid?

Can you enter into Service Mode? If so can, can you turn on the drain pump for me? This will let us know if the Control Board is at least functioning in Service Mode and will take commands.

Go to page 16 of the Service Manual lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode and see if the drain pump motor runs.

Here is the process; close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00” Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on do you hear it run? Stop the test as the SM states with the off button or hit the Presoak key.

You mentioned it stopped draining, if the Control Board will take the command in Service Mode we can at least get rid of any standing water in the wash tub. When it stopped draining in the wash cycle did you take any error codes to the console like “ND”

Can you also try a Spin Only cycle and see if that will start and complete?

If you can’t do anything at the console pull the 120VAC power plug to the washer for 10 seconds then re-power up and try all above again.

Error codes are very helpful so please let me know what if any error codes you take to the console with your machine issue.


Washer starts, runs a few seconds and stops,does it over and over

Sound like the internal overload on the motor may be going out .Thsi is usuaklly due to bad or worn bearings. If you know anything abotu electricity,take a voltage reading at the motor whe it is in the run cycle(when it stops) If you stil have have the 110Volts to the motor then the motor is bad and need to be replaced.If you do not then you wil have to look elsewhere for the problem.

The Maytag top loader washer MAV7750BGW started to fill at the beginning of the washing cycle then stopped. Could not get it to do anything on any other cycle steps. Electrical supply OK. Managed to get...

It sounds like you have a lid switch problem. Check your the lid on your washer and see if it's not bent towards the middle. Often as things get sat on top, it will bend and not allow the switch to make contact. The washer doesn't do anything but fill when the machine thinks the lid is open. Try bending the middle of the lid back to where it is straight.
