What is a Washer?
A washer is a machine that hold a drum inside its skeleton that holds clothing. In this drum, water is filled both hot and cold to create the perfect temperatures forgrease and other types of stains to be taken out of fibers from clothing or cloth. As the drum spins the clothing inside filled with water, detergents are introduced into the mix to greatly enhance the cleansing power of the machine.

Washing machine basic problems and possible causes.

 

Will not spin

1. Perform Actuator and Switch Test for Spin. (Verify lid is closed)

2. Check for power on 120V between 9-pin connector and ground.

3. Verify Water Level switch is reset by disconnecting the hose to it. If this works repeat step 1
NOTE: Unit has a drain cycle of approximately 5 minutes before spin.

4. Blow into Water Level switch hose.

5. Check for voltage at motor.

6. If no power at 9-pin connector and motor resistance readings are okay,  replace electronic control.

Spins too fast/slow

1. Check brake system.

2. Verify solenoid operation and that it is not jammed.

3. If solenoid has power during the Actuator and Switch test for Pump and Brake Solenoid and does not actuate, replace solenoid.

4. The solenoid cannot be checked for resistance because it has an internal diode and is in parallel with the pump.

5. Check transmission clutch system.

WON’T DRAIN/SLOW DRAIN

1. Perform Actuator and Switch test for Pump and Brake Solenoid.

2. Check connections to pump.

3. Check for voltage at pump.

4. Clean pump.

5. Check for lint in drain hose.

6. Check pump using resistance test.

7. If no AC voltage is output from 9-pin connector when selected, replace electronic control.

Unit does stop when lid is opened
(Machine is designed to stop all functions with lid open. When the lid closes the machine continues the cycle.)

Washing Machine Operation Theory

All washers perform essentially the same four functions. They fill with water, agitate, drain the water and spin the water out of the clothing.

1. Before the washer can fill, the customer makes selections that:

  • Control the length of the wash cycle by turning the timer control knob
  • Control the temperature of the wash and rinse water by setting the water temperature switch.

The water temperature switch is identified by the dotted box in Fig. 2-2. The wash temp switch
chart indicates three possible switches, depending on the model washer being used. The switch
letters in the chart, H W and C are the possible water temperature selections, Hot , Warm and
Cold. The first letter is the wash temperature, the second letter is the rinse temperature.

  • Control the amount of water required for the amount of clothing by setting the water level or pressure switch.

2. Once the selections are made, a series of switches are closed in the timer and water temperature switch. If, for example, the customer selects the beginning of the REGULAR cycle, increment 4, and a WARM wash and COLD rinse, the following switches would be closed. The water level switch is set to move from the EMPTY position to the FULL position depending on how much tension is set on the switch diaphragm.

3. When the customer pulls the timer knob out, voltage is supplied to the hot and/or cold water
inlet solenoids. In the example above, both solenoids are energized to allow water to fill the tub.

4. As the water level rises in the tub, it causes an increase in air pressure in the air dome
assembly mounted to the side of the tub. A hose between the air dome and the water level switch transfers this air pressure against the diaphragm in the water level switch, causing electrical contacts to move from V to P, (EMPTY position), to V to T, (FULL position). The washer stops filling and the water level switch is providing voltage to the timer motor and the drive motor to begin agitation.

Agitation

1. Once there is power to the timer motor, the timer will start to advance. The drive motor will also begin to turn counterclockwise in the agitation direction. The direction of current through the drive motor starts winding, this will determine the direction the drive motor “run”. In the agitation mode, contacts are closed, causing current to flow in and start winding opposite the flow in the run winding.

2. The motor is coupled directly to the transmission and will cause the transmission shaft to
turn in the agitate direction. The agitator is mounted directly to the transmission shaft and is driven back and forth to provide agitation.

3. The water pump is mounted directly to the motor and will also turn in the agitate direction.
At this point the pump is running in reverse, so water does not leave the tub.

4. During the agitation cycle, the wash water is being pulled through the basket mounted lint
filter, (if equpped), by pumping vanes molded into the underside of the agitator. Due to the shape of the filter, lint is captured on the filter fins.

5. Also, during the agitation cycle, the transmission is being set up for neutral drain to provide a pump-out prior to going into spin.

6. Once the timer has advanced to the end of the wash cycle, contacts open in the timer
causing the drive motor to stop.

Drain cycle

1. The timer advances to the next step in the process, which is the drain cycle. Contacts 14 when the timer is closed, energizing the drive motor to run in a clockwise direction. The current flow in the start winding is the same as that in the run winding.

2. The drive motor now turns the pump in the clockwise or drains direction causing the pump to drain the dirty water out of the tub through the drain hose.

3. The weight of the water being pulled over the lint filter flushes the lint from the filter and out the drain hose with the dirty water.

4. After a two-minute drain, the timer contacts open momentarily, stopping the drive motor. This
momentary pause causes the transmission to reset itself for the spin cycle.

Spin cycle

1. After the motor restarts, in the same clockwise direction, the transmission is reset for the spin mode and the spin pinion begins to turn.

2. A clutch housing is mounted directly to the transmission spin pinion and begins to turn as well.

3. Inside the clutch housing is a clutch lining that is turned by the clutch housing by friction. The clutch lining is an almost complete circular band that is cushioned with a spring to allow the clutch to slip as the basket is coming up to speed. This slip prevents high torque loads on the motor and allows the motor to bring this heavy load up to speed without overloading.

4. The clutch lining is designed to contact the basket drive brake cam which releases the basket drive brakes during the spin cycle, allowing the basket drive to turn freely.

5. The basket drive is connected to the basket with a drive block and nut. The turning basket drive causes the basket to begin to spin.

6. As the basket gets up to its full spin speed, the clutch slippage is gradually reduced until the clutch, basket drive and basket are being driven as if they were one unit.

 

More Washing Machine tips

1. Will not power up

  • unplug unit for at least five seconds and then plug back in
  • check outlet for 120V
  • check for visible damages on harness.
  • Plug in machine in another outlet to check ground too

2. Will not start

  • verify that unit is not in pause or service mode or lock key is pressed
  • unplug unit for more than five seconds.
  • check door latch system

3. Washer will not fill

  • Verify water supply
  •  Check water valves

Laundry drain pipe installation types

1. Utility sink or Laundry Tub should have a minimum capacity of 20 gallons and the top of the sync should be minimum 34” and not more than 72” from the bottom of the washer.

2. Floor Drain system requires a Sypho-Break and must be above the high water level in the tub (28” from the bottom)

3. Standpipe Drain must have a minimum of 2” diameter drain pipe with a minimum capacity of 17 gallons per minute us required. The standpipe should be a minimum of 39” and no more than 72” from the bottom of the washer.

Is there any routine maintenance needed for my washer?
Yes. In truth, all appliances need a maintenance routine much like a person needs to see the doctor twice a year.

Does my washer really need to be level?
Yes it does. In order for the washer to work at full capacity and function properly, the machine must always be level.

How much detergent do I need for each load?
It mostly depends on the water you are using and the stain (dirt) you are removing from clothing. Softened water does not require as much detergent as opposed to hard water, but the dirtier the clothing the more detergent one needs to use to clean them. If soap is left at the end of the cycle then that means too much detergent is being used.

Which detergent is best?
Almost all detergents do their job as advertised, but the detergents that produce the least amount of soap suds have proven to be the best.

Where does the lint go from my washer?
Usually there is a lint filter that collects all the lint. You must manually clean this filter after every cycle, if there is no filter present; it means it is drained out into the sewers, which is considered safe for sewers and septic tanks.

Are front-loading washers more efficient than top loaders?
Definitely. The higher initial cost a front loading washer can be recovered in just a few years time by the sewer, drying time, water, and even soap usage savings

Why do items sometimes tear in my washer?
If the washer is rather full during a cycle, the agitator may catch a piece of clothing and rip it up so always make sure the washer is not loaded very heavily.

 What causes those fuzzy balls on some clothing?
There are many types of clothes made of synthetic materials that when washed leave behinf small fibers that bundle up and cling on to clothing. You may take these fuzz balls out with a stick roller that is used to clean off the hair from coats. To prevent any fuzzy balls from occurring do not overload washer.

How do I know how much to put into the washer?
Amounts vary with the types of clothes you put in. The best way to make sure to not overflood the washer with clothing is simply by making sure that the clothing is not compressed, there must be enough room for water to reach and clean and for the clothes to be able to move around freely while it is being tumbled.

Is it bad to let the machine run with an unbalanced load?
Yes. This may cause various problems at a later cycle, when a load is not balanced then stop the cycle and rearrange the clothing and continue.

Is it true that a nail, accidentally put in the washer, can break it?
Yes it is. A coin or a metal earring can break the washer by smashing inside and hitting critical components. Always make sure to empty out pockets before each cycle.

How can I get rid of residual soap suds at the end of a cycle?
This usually results from using too much soap, try putting in less and if clothing is not coming out as clean as they should then repeat cycle with same amount of soap.

 Why do some clothing dealers suggest washing clothes inside out?
Clothing turns to turn inside out when in the washer, dealers may suggest to turn them inside out yourself prior to a washing cycle only because it preserves the clothing that is outward when worn, and keeps things such as decals or logos from being worn out.

Is there any routine maintenance needed for my washer?
Yes. In truth, all appliances need a maintenance routine much like a person needs to see the doctor twice a year.
