a1speedy appliance, 11.30 pm Saturday 11-14-09

 

I was at not home went I received your second reply.

 

I do not know if the leaking water got in the motor.

After the Clamp was secured on the hose connected to the tub,

1. the washer was loaded with cloths

2. the washer fill with water, and soap was added

3. the washer started agitating and washing the cloths

4. half way through the washing cycle, and before the spin cycle,

the washing machine stopped agitating and the lights in the room went out.

The tub was filled with water, soap and wet coths.

No water was released or leaked out

5. The washing machine was unplugged from the wall outlet.

6. A new 15 amp fuse was placed in the basement fuse box.

7. The light came back on in the laundry room

8. The washing machine was plugged back into the wall outlet

and immediately there was a spark in wall outlet and the light when out.

9. Item 8 was repeated again with a new fuse in the basement fuse box

and the same thing happend againg.

 

Questions:

Is their a connection to the motor, that if wet will short outs

If the lid switch gets wet, will it also cause a short?

 

 

Hope this helps

Thanks,

Burt

I have check the wall socket with an shop light.

The socet works fine.

The fuse only blows when I plug in the washing machine

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
ok but the washer draws allot more amps than the shoplight you will need to check the outlet connections and make sure they are tight, sometimes inside the socket can also go bad, let me know thanks Bryan

Hi Bryan,

This a long process.

I plugges a 1500 watt hair drying into the outlet. That should be about

10 ammps, The fuse did not blow.

Plugging the washing machine immediately blow the fuse.

 

What part inside the washer could be causing this

 

Thanks,

Burt

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
well does it blow the fuse before you even start the machine?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

 

If the washing machine is turn off, the unit can be plugged in without blowing the fuse.

 

Then if the knob is pull out to start the fuse blows and the room lights go out.

 

Thanks,

Burt

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes the outlet does accept a three prong plug
Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
you must have a short in the motor or wirring then. the motor capacitor could also be bad , Part 2859i think the motor might be your issue though.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

1. How would I check out the motor?

2. Does the motor have a fuse that can be replased?

Thanks,

Burt

 

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
you cant really check the motor and there is no fuse to bypass or replace. I would at this point call the service man back and tell him it hasnt worked right since he left, this is your best bet at this time, sorry , thanks Bryan
