Since attempting washer repairs can be dangerous, in many instances work should only be undertaken by a qualified professional. And certainly the money you've saved by doing your own repairs will be of little benefit if a careless accident sends you to the emergency room. For this reason, let the professional who is familiar and experienced with technical safety work. Call Paul Ramey appliance repair 24/7 for professional assistance at the toll free number:



How the washer basket spins
To shift from agitate to spin, the washer timer releases a solenoid, moving the agitator cam bar upward and left, raising the agitator gear free of the drive pin on the agitator shaft. The same signal sets the pump to drain water from the tub. Then another solenoid moves the spin cam bar to the left. The yoke spring pulls down on the brake yoke to engage the basket's clutch plate with the rotating basket pulley; the basket starts to spin. When the spin cam bar is moved out again by the timer, it disengages the clutch and puts on the brake to stop the basket, thus resetting the mechanism so the washer will be ready to agitate when it is again filled with water.
Why the agitator rocks
Whenever the motor runs, it moves a belt that rotates two pulleys, one on the basket shaft and the other, called the main pulley, at one side, where a small gear on its shaft turns the drive gear. As this drive gear revolves, a connecting rod causes a wedge-shaped gear and the agitator gear it meshes with to swing back and forth. The washer spins or agitates depending on whether or not this agitator gear is locked to the agitator shaft. During agitation, the agitator gear is pushed down onto a pin jutting from the agitator shaft so the gear can rock the agitator back and forth.
How a mixing valve works
Mixing valves fill the washer with hot, cold or warm water depending on which valve has been opened. When a valve is closed (cold-water valve, at right in drawing), a solenoid plunger blocks a pilot hole in a flexible diaphragm, and water from the valve port enters a cavity above the diaphragm through a bleed hole. Water pressure on both sides of the diaphragm is the same, but the total force on top is greater because the pressure there affects a greater area, and the valve is held closed. To open a valve (hot-water valve, at left in drawing), the solenoid raises the plunger to unblock the pilot hole.
Do make sure the water faucets to which the washing machine is connected are in perfect condition. A faucet leak could cause a flood. The faucets are there for a reason. Very few people do it, but the faucets should be turned on before doing the wash and turned off after doing washing for the day. Not doing (his keeps continuous water pressure on the hose connectors, a good way to induce eventual hose failure.
Do make certain that the drain hose releases at a higher elevation than the top of the water in the washing machine. If the release is not higher, gravity drainage will set in and your machine will be constantly filling. Connect the drain hose to a stand pipe if necessary. But do this cautiously. If the hose fits into the opening too tightly, you can create a vacuum effect that will cause service problems.
Never overload the washing machine! Ask any service professional, this is the prime cause for washing machine failure. YOU may think you are saving a little time, or a little soap.
