frigider washer don't move w/o a push ???
« on: April 20, 2009, 07:33:58 PM »
HELLO. :)

Question
THE WASHING MACHINE MOTOR WILL NOT SPIN THE TUB OR AGITATE WHEN THE CYCLE IS START ON. :tickedoff:
YOU CAN HEAR THE MOTOR TRYING TO MOVE THE TUB BUT IT SORT OF HUMS.... :o .
IF I PUSH/TURN A BIT THE MOTOR THEN IT'S RUNS FINE AND EVERYTHING OPERATES UNTIL IT STOPS IN NEXT CYCLE. :2funny:
I CAN MOVE THE PULLEY MANUALLY AND RETRY SEVERAL TIMES IT MAY START FINE.... ;D
DOES THE CAPACITOR IN THE SYSTEM GIVE IT THE BOOST FOR THE START UP THEN RUN. OR IS THERE ANY OTHER STARTING "THING"  THAT GIVES THE MOTOR A BOOST... DO I HAVE A CAPACITOR PROBLEM OR A MOTOR PROBLEM.
NOTE WHEN THE MOTOR GETS GOING EVERY THINGS SEEMS TO WORK OK... THIS IS A STANDARD LANDRY-CENTER UNIT(WASHER & DRYER COMBO) NO ELECTRONIC CIRICIT-BORD OR ELECTRONICS BOARDS IN IT MADE BY FRIGIDAIRE

 ;)
I JUST GOT A CAPACITOR AND REPLACE THE OLD ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT BLOW-OFF AND STILL I GET THIS "HAMMING" NOICE AND THE MOTOR DON'T START TILL I GIVE IT A PUSH, THEN IT'S FINE TILL IT END IT'S CYCLE.

HELP !!!!!.........PLEASE :embarassed: : :'( :embarassed:

THANK YOU

Model FLSE72GC

It coukld be a bad centrifugal Start Switch in the Motor,

bad Start Winding in the Motor

or bad contacts in the Timer...

depending on the missing last (2) characters of your model number ...
