In Topic: maytag front load washer won't spin

02 June 2013 - 05:24 PM

I'll try this in the morning. Since p3-3 and -4 both supply 24v and p4-4 is where the imbalance switches get their 24v, what difference does it make to jumper 2 and 3 instead of 2 and 4 like I tried today?

P3-1 is machine ground and not part of the unbalance sense circuit. My tshoot guide says p3-3 is the common terminal for motor control signals. I jumpered p3-2 to p3-4 to short the unbalance switches and the machine still won't spin up in normal or service cycle or quick spin test with plaster unbalance detection enabled. If I run the quick spin test with plaster unbalance detection disabled then it spins just fine. Now what?

Correction I meant to say p2-3 is control common.

as to jumpering P3-1 to P3-2, the schematic I have shows 24vdc coming out of P3-4, going through three unbalance switches, and coming back into P3-2.  P3-1 is ground.  Surely, sensei, if I connect P3-2 to ground I will be shorting out 24vdc to ground through the switches.  If instead I connect P3-4 to P3-2, I will be jumpering around the switches themselves, thus preventing a spurious imbalance signal from occurring.  Please let me know which way is right.

best accessed from the back?  and by balance circuit you mean the balance trip switches, yes?  

 

Can you tell me what a healthy 'Unbal.' value is during pre-spin unplastering?  I'm watching it fail to progress from pre spin right now, and I'm seeing values in the hundreds with a light wash load.

Which balance sensor would prevent a fast spin without setting a code? It is behaving exactly as if it cannot get past the plaster imbalance stage, which is sensed by motor torque and doesn't rely on tub excursions. With no load the tub sounds like it turns smoothly yet the imbalance diagnostic display shows upwards of 200 at low speeds. I assume this number comes from motor torque measurements, what do I look for? I thought I might take the back panel off and turn it by hand to see if it feels smooth.
