Wascomat W655 motor not engaging and final spin pops breaker.

It sounds like you've already tried several troubleshooting steps, but let's see if we can narrow down the issue with your Wascomat W655 commercial washer. Here are some additional things to consider:

Motor Capacitor: The motor capacitor plays a crucial role in starting the motor. If it's faulty, the motor might not engage properly. Consider checking or replacing the motor capacitor.

Motor Wiring: Inspect the wiring connections to the motor. Loose or damaged wires can prevent the motor from functioning correctly. Ensure all connections are secure and free from damage.

Motor Brushes: The motor brushes wear out over time. If they're worn down, the motor won't engage. Check the brushes and replace them if necessary.

Belt Tension: If your washer has a belt-driven motor, ensure that the belt is properly tensioned. A loose or damaged belt can cause motor issues.

Drain Pump: Although you mentioned that the drain pump seems to be working fine, it's still worth verifying. Sometimes a malfunctioning drain pump can affect other components.

Mechanical Obstructions: Inspect the drum and surrounding components for any obstructions. Something lodged in the drum or motor assembly could prevent movement.

High-Speed Spin: Since the issue occurs during the high-speed spin, focus on components related to this phase. It could be related to the motor, belt, or even the drum balance.

A professional technician could perform more advanced diagnostics.

If you haven't already, you might find it helpful to consult the diagrams and manuals specific to the Wascomat W655 washer. Alliance Laundry Systems provides replacement parts and repair resources. Diagrams, Parts and Manuals for Wascomat W655 Washer (alliancelaundry.com)

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers Machine Control Board Repair

Component failures on Maytag Neptune Font Load Washers such as the pressure switch, wax motor, hot and cold water valve solenoids, timer motor, 24 VDC circuit, and the overall electrical buffer circuit have significant effect on the machine control board. Failed resistors on the machine control board can be used to determine failed washer components. Resistor R9 is associated with the pressure switch, R11 is for the wax motor, R51 for the hot water valve solenoid, R52 for the timer motor, R53 for the cold water valve solenoid, R143 for the 24 VDC circuit, and R162 for the overall electrical buffer circuit. The TRIAC Q6 is also associated with the wax motor while TRIACS Q3, Q9, and Q17 are for the timer motor, cold water valve solenoid, and hot water valve solenoid respectively. These TRIACS must also be replaced should the corresponding resistors fail or burn out especially when there's no power going to the associated component.

The most common problem experienced is the failure of the wax motor as indicated by the inability of the washer to advance to the high speed spin cycle with the "door locked" light not lit. Replace the TRIAC Q6 and the resistor R11 on the machine control board to get the machine back into operation. Use MAC97A6 or NTE5656 for Q6 and a 3.9 kilo-ohms carbon or carbon film resistor for R11. It is recommended to install a 1/2-ampere pico fuse in series with the wax motor to prevent damage to Q6 and R11 should the wax motor shorts out and fails again.

Replacement of the wax motor is a must before installing the repaired or new machine control board to prevent damage to the repaired or new part. Make sure the wiring harness connections of washer components are good and snug fit. Reseat the connectors several times to clean off corrosion build up both on the connectors and terminals.

My timer will not advance.

Normally that is a timer motor or motor gear and needs a new timer. Easy replacement, just unplug the washer, take the back off and replace one wire at a time from the old to the new. Then remove the old one and mount the new one. I had to replace mine a while back.

Replaced an old Magnetek century two speed with a AO smith century two speed. Hooked the wires up the same but unable to get the motor to operate in the high speed mode, suggestions!

Each motor will have wiring diagram on label.
Compare diagram on old motor with new motor.

Open the control console.
Use a voltmeter to test the timer motor.
Set the machine to wash.
Place the meter leads on the 2 timer motor wires.
If you read 120 volts and the timer does not advance,the timer motor is bad.
The complete timer will need replacing.

Kenmore Series 80 washer NO High Speed Spin

It could be a timer, motor or wiring problem. You would need to check for 110 volts at the timer or motor when in the higher spin mode. If you are getting 110v you have a bad motor. No or low volts you have a bad timer. The motor is either a 2 or 3 speed motor and you would have to determine which winding to check for the 110v. The schematic is usually glued to the inside rear cabinet. Please rate this post.

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

Old Maytag washer LA182 motor replacement

Neil,
I need to know if the motor came with a wiring diagram when it was purchased or did it just come by itself. You may have to learn how to read the wiring diagram that is stored inside the control panel.
