My Simpson would not spin out. I expected a blown start capacitor or stuffed motor. So I sort the net for info and found this site. A helpful member had a wiring diagram and a photo of a burnt out motor which I looked at. I then pulled the back off the machine looking for the fault or a blown capacitor. While looking for the cap I found some impressive electronics and a capacitor the size of a shot glass. Too small I thought but I noticed (U V W) printed beside some terminals on the printed circuit board. Naugh I thought it can’t be but it was. Three phase, this washer has a single to three phase variable frequency drive. That accounts for all the electronics. I then pulled the stator off the motor to reveal a permanent magnet rotor and basic three phase stator. A three phase synchronous motor. I checked the resistance of each winding, equal. Insulation resistance was good. I put the motor back together and looked at the gismo that operates the bowl locking mechanism. It turned out to be a single phase synchronous motor driving a cam and micro switch. All worked OK. I took photos and some video that I will try to upload later. Still the bloody thing did not work. For some reason I did not check the operation of the pump or the simple shaded pole motor, at least that had not changed. The next day I mentioned the problem to my mate Phill. “Had the same problem” said Phill. “Coin stuck in pump. I had to pay some bloke $150 bucks who fixed it in five minutes.” Phill was right. I found stuffing from a pillow blocking the pump. No pump, the water level will not fall so the machine won’t progress to the spin cycle. Good on ya Phill, saved me time and money. I’ll shout him a couple of beers. You get the info for nothing but that is what’s good about these forums. Hope this helps. Cheers.
