Washer Repair / Re: My Neptune is frozen
« Last post by def on September 21, 2014, 10:39:35 PM »
Just so you know, my Neptune is still doing the job. The washer cost me $0.00 and about $50.00 to repair. If you have one that you want to get rid of, let me know.  :popcorn:

Washer Repair / AMANA LW6153WM
« Last post by amos1 on September 21, 2014, 10:25:31 PM »
The problem with this washer is it will stop at the rinse cycle and not advance. Can turn dial to all other wash positions and nothing will happen, if I turn dial with out pulling out knob I can get it to run. Also this thing will run from one cycle right on to the next without stopping.  I have replaced the timer with no cure and  I replaced the mixing valves still same problem. Noticed when the timer advances to the rinse I loose voltage to the timer motor.
Any suggestions
Thanks

The PDF helped. It is a Cumulative Defrost Clock (Version 1).

I found a similar schematic showing this set up. I was suspecting it was the case, but seeing the schematic helps it make sense.

Sorry for the double posting But I figured out how to reverse the motor myself. these are very durable motors and seem to outlast their origional purpose so I decided I would give um a second life. At 3/4 hp, they have enough umph to do many other things, shop grinders, disk sanders and many other uses. Here is what I did to get it to run. By the way I found out that It will self-start without the capacitor But I will use it anyway. If you have any questions feel free to ask. O0

Ok so I put the blower motor cover back on as you suggested and It def improved the flame. The flame even ran longer. So, then I reattached the vent hose and ran again. The flame once again ran longer - maybe 2-3 minutes. After the flame went out this time , the igniter started up but the flame would not ignite. I even cleared (shut down) and restarted dryer , same thing the igniter starts up but no flame. After all this I gave it some time -like one hour, tried it all once again and the flame now ignited. Someone else posted the coils may test good but be bad and I think you had mentioned that the coils could have a crack in wire and when they are cold they function - when they get warmer the crack expands apart and then they don't function. (do they get warm or hot?) 

With this being said - does it appear to be the coils - gas valve ?????

thanks again

Your model is 1068311650.

Thanks for the link. I have already fixed the problem. I'm just trying to figure out how its wired or why the voltage changes on the timer motor wire

hmm ok, that might be an issue. Any fixes on unsticking the float? I took it apart and made sure it was clean - which it was, no build up of any kind in the container or on the float. would a spray like wd-40 on the hinge help? or other underwater type lube?
