Sounds like your motor is weak, and starting to seize up. Once you give it a bit of momentum, it's still strong enough to keep going, but every time it stops it has problems getting over that initial friction of starting. I expect if you do nothing, it won't be too long until the motor goes out entirely. If you'd like to replace the motor, it's most likely one of the three listed here: http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/washer-whpl.shtml#motors I couldn't find specifics for your model, but if you pull the motor out I'm sure you can visually match it to one of those. However, if it were me I'd keep manually starting it until the motor died entirely, and then decide whether to repair or replace the washer. May as well get as much as you can out of what you have.

Duet dryer is making a humming noise when cycle starts a d during


whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

RUUD UBHA-14 J11SFJA air handler. The fan (blower) doesn?t runs


Absolutely, however, you want to properly diagnose the reason why the fan is not running. It could be a less expensive part than the fan motor itself.
First, check to see if you have the proper voltage going to the motor. I believe your motor requires 240volts ac. If you do not have 240 volts, you have a control problem.......either the thermostat is failing to close R & G or your blower relay may have failed to close the contacts necessary for your fan to operate.
If you have the voltage, then you want try spinning the blower wheel with your hand. Does it spin freely? Is the motor warm/hot? If so, turn everything off for an hour or so. As soon as your energize it, try spinning the motor with your hand again.....if it spins freely with no resistance and then starts running by itself, the problem is the run capacitor (approx $20.00 depending on where you purchase it from). If there is resistance when you try to spin it, the problem is most likely with the bearings and you will need to replace the motor.......if you have to replace the motor, go ahead and replace the capacitor also, making sure it is properly "matched" with your new motor.

I hope you find this to be very helpful to you, moving forward. :-)

Kenmore 110.24962300 spin cycle not working, replaced broken motor coupler, still not spinning, lift lid jump safety switch so I can watch it. While in the spin cycle if I give the basket a little push by...


You have gone this far...you may as well go all the way. Replace the spin tube and brake assembly.
BUT, before you do that,double check the coupler replacement. The plastic pieces on the transmission and the motor MUST be flush with the shaft or they will bind and cause the problem you describe.

My blower motor will not start. it hums and gets very hot. i can spin the wheel with no resistance gmp075-4


Assuming you are spinning it when the motor is humming, if the motor runs after spinning it it could be the run capacitor (replace) or open/broken start winding in motor(need new motor). Humming should indicate the motor is getting proper voltage. If motor does not try to run by spinning then open run winding in motor (replace motor).

Replaced blower motor on coleman ac


You MUST always replace a capacitor when you replace a capacitor start/run device.
Replace the cap.

My tablesaw wont speed up and run. Bosch 4000 ten inch. It makes a klunk and starts to turn and slowly speeds up until its running, but still makes a knocking sound


Is it spinning the blade at all? If it is then it is unlikely to be an electrical fault. Have you considered a motor bearing fault? If the motor bearings are worn, it could turn freely by hand, but when powered up it would stutter and stall. The motor is basically a big electro-magnet so if the armature has enough lateral movement, when it is magnetized it could rub against the stator.
If the machine is buzzing, but not spinning the blade it is more than likely going to be caused by a faulty capacitor as this is the component that gives the motor the initial 'kick' in the right direction to get it spinning.

Berkel Slicer won't start


Had the same problem, test your capacitor, that should be the cause of it. Good luck.

Kenmore model #110.22802100 drains but no spin


If it is draining, then the motor is ok.
If it is agitating properly, then the motor coupler is ok.
This leaves the gearcase, clutch, basketdrive(brake), basket drive block, or timer.

Raise the lid and hold the lid switch down. Start a rinse cycle and let it go through the cycle. It should drain the water, then stop the motor for a split second then kick the motor back in and start spinning. If it doesn't drop out that split second then the timer is holding it in neutral drain. You can recreate this by letting it start draining, then let off the lid switch, then depressing it again. The basket should start spinning. If not,

Raise the lid and hold the lid switch closed. Start it in spin and see if you can get it started spinning by hand. If so you probably have a slipping clutch.
Post back with any questions.
You can go to sears.com, click on parts, and enter your model number and see parts diagrams of the washer. This can be helpful.
