Customer Question
i have a awm 1204/4...
i have a awm 1204/4 stops between 11 and a. Its about 5 years old.I have 3 young ckildren and have cleaned out small socks and stuff from pump about 5 times and always worked fine after.However got jammed the other day cleaned out pump lots of coins stuck in there had to replace pump as not workin.New pump works fine when i connect external power to it.Pressure switch has been cleaned out tube and small bottle on drum.Pressure switch works ok.When i blow into pipe on pressure switch it starts pump think this is if machine overfills.Anyway after all this gets stuck between 11 and a all the time doesnt pump out just stops any ideas am considering buying new could it be timer any help greatly appreciated thanks ali

Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

is it a two level pressure switch.switch 1 activates turns off water inlet when drum at right level and switch 2 is for when drum overfills and activates at higher pressure,Not sure if this is right as no service manual.

Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
after it fills and a slight delay the pump should come on that not the pressure switch that would be a timer not advancing

so you think just replace timer then should work ok, think pressure switch working ok.would help if had manual for pressure switch operating pressures but seems ok.I am a boiler engineer and always easy to get info from manufacture unlike washing machines!,
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
