Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello from JA My name is Woody. I will be glad to assist you today. I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 32 Years, and have over 100,000 in home repairs under my belt.
When you ran it and it stopped and started over at 6min .
did you have clothes or anything in the drum?
Not this time but I did try it with clothes also
Ok first thing you need to check is for any loose wiring on the drive motor .
And now with the new bearing everything seems to turn nice and smooth.
It appears the unit thinks the tub is out of balance ,and trying to spinn more water out of the unit !
ok I will check. Yes it runs smooth
the wires on the motor are fine
Humm everything points to wiring / communication issue.
Lets check the balance switch also .
The inertial unbalance switch is located on the
upper right hand side of the outer tub, in front
of the top concrete weight. The switch consists
of a moving weight in the switch body
which presses against the switch contacts. If
the unbalance of the outer tub becomes too
erratic, the moving weight will open the contacts
in the switch. When the machine controller
senses the switch opening, the machine
controller will reduce the spin speed to 650,
550, or 450 rpm depending on the current
speed closest to the level spin speed (i.e. 625
rpm trip would drop to 550 rpm)
ok how do I ck it
Testing the Inertial Unbalance Switch:
Testing of the switch may prove difficult.The switch will not open unless the switch is
moved side to side creating a "G" force of 8 - 9 Ft. lbs.
1 . Disconnect power to the unit.
2 . Place ohm meter leads across the two terminals of the inertial switch. Move the
switch side to side. If the contacts do not open easily, the switch is good. If the
switch contacts are open or easily tripped, replace the switch.
I touched the contact ends with the probes and did not get any reading.I pushed the button in also and no reading. Should I get some reading
is there a screw holding the switch in place and if so is it a Philips. Cant see the side panel is too close
