#320586 DHDSR46EE1WW GE Electric dryer

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 May 2015 - 04:27 PM

  Check continuity of timer terminals T to X. Should have continuity (zero ohms) in timed dry. Or just jump those wires together. Timer contacts fail all the time, timer motors rarely fail. The resistor is only used in auto dry.

#320585 Motor just hums 11029422801 CY4021872

  The start winding is red to yellow, not red to gray. Check the condition of the motor connector looking for corroded wire terminals or broken wires. If all good, it's either the capacitor or the timer.

#320563 Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer GGW9250PW0 Fails To Run After Start Button Pushed

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 May 2015 - 09:29 AM

  A faulty thermistor would not prevent the dryer from starting. Check the door switch, check for a broken belt (will not start without belt), if those are ok, check the belt switch at the motor. If all good, check the function of the start button as per the tech sheet. If ok, then looks like you need a new electronic control board.

#320561 Whirlpool direct drive, won't agitate, but spins

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 May 2015 - 09:12 AM

  The problem is most likely the orange wire connection at the motor. That's why I asked about the 2 minute spin. Directly after agitation stops, the washer goes into a 2 minute drain. Drain is high speed only and power to the motor for this is via the blue wire and this bypasses the speed switch and motor centrifugal switch. The washer is supposed to drain without spinning but on many older machines, the neutral drain does not work and the washer will begin spinning. This is no big deal. After the two minute drain, the motor stops for a few seconds and starts again. This action causes the transmission to shift out of neutral. Also, at this point, power to the motor is now via the orange wire. The motor connector should not wiggle loose because there is a clip that prevents it from doing that. I would run the machine with the cabinet off and lid switch bypassed. Run it in spin and jiggle the orange wire at the motor connector. It may have an internal break or it may be that it is not making a tight connection or the terminals have become corroded. Closely inspect the terminal inside the connector and the terminal on the motor that it connects to.

 

  Had you mentioned in your first post that it only spins for 2 minutes, I would have known right away what the problem was but maybe you were not really aware of it.

#320215 Whirlpool direct drive, won't agitate, but spins

Posted by fairbank56 on 18 May 2015 - 10:55 AM

  The clicking is most likely the timer closing and opening the contacts for agitation. In handwash, agitation is intermittent. It goes into agitate for a bit and then goes into soak only for a bit, then repeats but this doesn't really tell us much. The problem still could be either the timer or speed switch. Jumping the two wires that I mentioned would tell you for sure which it is. Or you can just buy both and return whichever you don't need. This washer is definitely worth fixing vice buying any of the junk they sell nowadays.

#320202 Whirlpool direct drive, won't agitate, but spins

Posted by fairbank56 on 18 May 2015 - 09:12 AM

  The fabric selector is the speed switch. In order to determine if it's the speed switch or the timer, you would either have to bypass the speed switch as I mentioned before or take a voltage reading at the speed switch. When the washer should be agitating, you should have 120vac to ground at the speed switch Y-W terminal and the OR terminal. Wires must remain connected.

#320182 Old Maytag dryer convert from 3 wire cord to 4 wire cord

Posted by fairbank56 on 17 May 2015 - 08:22 PM

  No. That white wire in the machine is not ground. You need to remove the ground strap that goes between the center terminal and the cabinet. Leave the two existing white wires attached to the center terminal. Attach the white wire from then new cord to the center terminal and the green wire to the cabinet ground screw.

#320149 Whirlpool Direct Drive Help WTW5540SQ0

Posted by fairbank56 on 17 May 2015 - 07:57 AM

  It can be normal for the clutch to move back and forth slightly during agitation. The agitator shaft goes up through the middle of the spin pinion gear and there is a seal between them so the friction between these parts causes the movement. There is also a seal between the pinion gear and the transmission top cover which generally prevents this movement of the clutch but if it's a loose seal, there can be some movement.

#320148 Whirlpool direct drive, won't agitate, but spins

Posted by fairbank56 on 17 May 2015 - 07:49 AM

  You say you can hear the timer ticking after fill stops. If the timer is advancing, then it appears that the pressure switch is ok. Problem could be the timer or the speed switch. Try it in handwash cycle. This has an intermittent agitate so you will have to wait as the timer advances to see if it will agitate. If it does work in handwash, then the speed switch is the problem.  You could also bypass the speed switch as a test by jumping out the orange and yellow/white wires on the back of the switch. That's the yellow wire with white stripe, not the white wire with yellow stripe.

#320097 Whirlpool Direct Drive Help WTW5540SQ0

Posted by fairbank56 on 16 May 2015 - 06:55 AM


. Is there any chance that you know of that the brake or whatever that plastic piece is could have just been in the wrong spot for agitating?

 

  The plastic piece is the brake cam driver and is only used during spin. It serves no function during agitation.

#320018 Whirlpool/Kenmore Direct Drive NO pause drain Model 110.23812100

Posted by fairbank56 on 15 May 2015 - 10:00 AM

NO...someone posted earlier this model does not have a pause drain so im hoping the new timer has been converted or updated with a pause drain

 

  There's no "updated" timer. I don't get why this is so difficult. Your washer is a 2001 model. All Whirlpool direct drive models since 1986 have a neutral drain transmission and therefore have a timer that pauses the drive motor after the 2 minute drain. You have to listen to your washer. After agitation stops, the washer should go into drain without spinning. It should drain for 2 minutes. Then the drive motor should stop for a few seconds and then start again. That's the pause that takes the transmission out of neutral. If it ain't pausing, the timer is bad. If it is pausing, the problem lies elsewhere.

#319980 Whirlpool/Kenmore Direct Drive NO pause drain Model 110.23812100

Posted by fairbank56 on 14 May 2015 - 06:07 PM

  Yes, but the question is, does the motor pause and then start again after the 2 minute drain. If it does, the timer is not the problem.

 

Eric




#319970 Whirlpool/Kenmore Direct Drive NO pause drain Model 110.23812100

Posted by fairbank56 on 14 May 2015 - 05:33 PM

  Yes, it will pause the motor after the 2 minute drain as the one you already have should be doing unless someone installed the wrong timer. Are you waiting long enough? It will drain for a full 2 minutes regardless of  how long it actually takes to drain. Typically it will fully drain long before the 2 minutes is up.

#319956 Whirlpool/Kenmore Direct Drive NO pause drain Model 110.23812100

Posted by fairbank56 on 14 May 2015 - 01:39 PM

  This is a 2001 model and yours was made in 2003 and it does have the neutral drain transmission. All models since 1986 do. You need a new timer.
