#299362 GE wsm2700daww agitates, drains but won't spin

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 July 2014 - 09:01 PM

  Sounds like faulty timer. Washer agitates ok so motor is ok. It's a single speed motor and same windings are used for spin as are used for agitate. Only difference is polarity to start winding is reversed which takes place in the timer. Green wire at motor is ground. Motor connector pins are numbered right to left but second position is not counted, third position is counted (M2) but is only used on two speed motors, ninth position (M8) also only used on 2 two speed motors. Second, third (M2) and ninth (M8) positions are not connected on your motor. M6 is seventh position from right. Pump works so neutral through lid switch is ok. T13 is on the diagram but it's not actually written on the diagram. You see T14 below "CAP" in the motor start winding circuit? It switches between T13 and T15. You gotta know how to interpret the diagrams.

  There is a generic Whirlpool service manual for the direct drive models on our download site here. Many wiring diagrams and tech sheets are also available here. Go to downloads and do a search. If no joy, go to service manual request forum and someone may be able to find what your looking for.

  Looks like an invalid model number. I see an RQ2, but no PQ2. Basic single speed Whirlpool model, doesn't have any relays. Wiring diagrams are attached to inside back panel behind control panel. Here's the diagram for the RQ2 model.

#298141 Kenmore Washer 110.24972300

Posted by fairbank56 on 08 July 2014 - 08:08 AM

  Agree on plumbing issue. Could be a faulty mixing valve at a single lever faucet in the home. Otherwise, could be a faulty timer. If timer contacts are selecting rinse instead of wash, you would get cold as rinse is cold water only. Can you post wiring diagram for this model?

  Washer fills, fuse is good. Blown fuse only prevents washer from filling. When you manually place timer in spin, will timer now advance? If not, most likely a faulty lid switch.

#297813 whirlpool dryer wed9400sw heating problems

Posted by fairbank56 on 03 July 2014 - 10:04 AM

  Maybe he got the sensor strips clean while cleaning out all the lint. They are what cause timing countdown in auto dry cycle. If the strips are shorting out, dryer control thinks the clothes are still wet and will continue heating, thus burning up of the clothes.

#297705 Kenmore 110.20702990 won't spin or agitate, coupler already replaced

Posted by fairbank56 on 01 July 2014 - 05:52 PM

  It wouldn't be the clutch as it has no function during agitation. One thing I see often is when DIY'er's replace the coupler, they don't get it on the shafts far enough causing the motor to bind and quickly cause motor bearing failure. Hopefully, that is not the problem. Pull pump from motor and try running washer to rule out pump problem. Best to run machine with cabinet off and lid switch bypassed so you can see whats going on. i.e. is motor running or just humming.

#297339 kenmore washing machine 110.92573200

Posted by fairbank56 on 26 June 2014 - 04:07 PM

Ok, that part is quite a bit more expensive. Any way to test that?  Just to clarify, after agitation, the entire machine stops and the timer stops right at that point. It does not continue to advance while the machine does nothing.  So when the timer advances to the point it should start draining, everything stops - machine, timer, everything just as if I pulled the timer button out to shut it down.

 

  That's not what you said before.

 

"It will run all the way to the final draining after the rinse and stops."

"Yes, it run until the very last drain before the final spin, then stops when it should start draining"

"The timer still continues all the way to the final draining cycle, then it shuts off"

 

Your giving conflicting information as to the symptoms. That's why I asked if this was happening in the rinse cycle or after the first wash cycle. Your indication was that it was only in the rinse cycle. That's where the final spin cycle is. Apparently, now that is not the case? I'm confused. Jump out the lid switch and see if it works.

  If timer continues to advance after agitation stops and there is no noise from the drive motor, then the timer is bad.

  You stated "It will run all the way to the final draining after the rinse and stops". Did it drain/spin after wash cycle? If so, the problem isn't the lid switch.

#297038 Maytag MVWX700XW1 Top load washer - Noise during agitation

  Don't just tighten it. Add some Loctite blue 242 threadlocker as already suggested or it's going to loosen again.

#297036 Maytag MVWC400XW2 how to interpret dianostic codes

Posted by fairbank56 on 23 June 2014 - 03:29 PM

  Those are not fault codes, they are the diagnostic test modes. You need to get the tech sheet. Generally, you should run the calibration function after replacing parts. Tilt the machine back and look up inside cabinet for manual. There may be a sound deadener that has to be removed to gain access from below.

#296988 Whirpool "senseon" GGW9868KQ3 dryer will not start! HELP!

Posted by fairbank56 on 23 June 2014 - 08:12 AM

  Bad electronic control board. Sorry, I wasn't very clear when I said "rule out the relay and control board". What that meant was that if the motor still didn't start, the problem was not the relay or control board. Boy, that's a very expensive part!

 

  If the problem is the boards motor relay and you have some soldering skills, you can just replace the relay which cost's about $3. Check the back of the circuit board where the relay is soldered in. Could just be a bad solder joint there, as in this photo.
