Question about Washing Machines

Dead Washing machine

My Blomberg 1503AS has stopped working midcycle during the rinse period according to the dial. It has an operation light that should come on when the programme selector is moved from the off position and a door light which should come on when the start button is then pressed. Neither lights work. When it stopped it threw the breaker on our consumer unit, but did not blow the fuse in the plug, as I tested it in another appliance. It seems lifeless. Any ideas what I should look for and how to test using a multimeter.

Hi,

With a continuity tester (multimeter or DVM), check the prongs of the plug itself with the Blomberg set to any cycle. The reading should not be "0" (short). Additionally, you can try it on another outlet being used by another appliance.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hoover six 1100 stops at certain points during the cycle until i turn the dial to skip to next part of cycle?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.
f the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.
If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.
If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....


Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.
