On some washing machines the solenoids move as the washer transmission is in operation. As they become older, the conductor may break inside the insulation of the washer wiring harness which goes to the washer solenoid. To check for this condition, remove the plug from the receptacle to disconnect all power from the washer. Then pull the connector from the terminal on the solenoid, grasp the wire about 6 inches back from the end, and pull oil it firmly and steadily. If the conductor pulls out of the insulation or you feel a "give" in the wire, splice a new piece of wire into the washer harness at least 6 inches back from the terminal. If yours is a motor-reversal-action washer, look to see if the washer rotation is actually reversing in the wash and spin cycles. Always check to see if the pulley driving the gear case is turning the shaft to which it is attached. Most washer pulleys are locked to their shaft with Allen-head set screws. Check the belt or belts to be sure they are not slipping. These observations show that the external controls of the washer transmission are functioning, or that the agitator is engaging but slipping, then the problem lies in the gearbox itself. If your washer is less than eight years old, it is possible that you may be able to repair a broken gearbox. Usually, though, it's best to obtain an entire rebuilt drive assembly, available for many washers. The rebuilding of these assemblies requires special tools to properly align bearings and gears, it’s usually wise to call a properly equipped and trained washer repair technician for this sort of' repair. Luckily, though, the gearbox is not likely to require repair until the washer has seen many years of hard usage. Most late-model automatic washers have a filter in the water system to reduce the amount of lint from fabrics. Operating at all times when the washer is washing or rinsing, the system removes water from a tub outlet, pumps it through the filtering device and back into the washer basket. Valuing devices in the washer pump control the water flow and direct it either to the filter or to the drain outlet. On motor-reversal types, the pump will discharge the water when turning in one direction to provide spinning action, and to the filter when turning in the opposite direction for agitation. Naturally, if something happens to stop water flow through the filter, the filtering action will stop. On most machines, you can see the water flow back into the washer if it is functioning correctly. On others, you must visually check the components in the filtering system to be sure the passages are not clogged. Some fabrics, such as terry cloth, flannel, etc. give off large amounts of lint. Others, such as corduroy, hold lint. Lint givers and lint holders should not be washed in the same load, as the lint will become attached to the nap of the lint-holding fabric before it gets into the water stream where it can be filtered. If a problem with lint is encountered, a fabric softener added to the rinse water will do much to eliminate the condition, especially in the case of wash-and-wear fabrics.
Clothes dryer, especially one that runs on electricity, is a simple machine. Safety Precautions There are of course, precautions to follow in handling an electric dryer or gas clothes dryer: Electric dryer. Disconnect the dryer from the homes electrical system before you begin to work. First unplug the dryer power cord from the wall outlet. If the outlet isn't accessible or the dryer is wired directly into the electrical system, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse that serves the dryer in the main electrical circuit breaker or fuse panel. • Gas dryer. Find and turn off the shut-off valve on the gas pipe leading to your gas dryer before attempting any dryer repairs. Unlike the water shut-offs to your washer, which are small rotating wheels or knobs, the gas shut-off valve has a bar that in operation is in line with the gas pipe. To turn the gas off, rotate the bar 90 degrees only, so that it lies perpendicular to the gas pipe. If you move the dryer from its position, do not put stress on the gas line, which might cause it to rupture.
REPAIRING THE VENT SYSTEM
• PROBLEM: The dryer lint screen is clean, but clothes remain damp after going through the drying cycle. • Damp clothes usually indicate that the vent system of the dryer is clogged with lint. Follow these steps to confirm the dryer problem and to fix it: The main reason that clothes take longer to dry is a lint-clogged filter. Clean this dryer screen before or after each cycle. 1. Move the dryer away from the wall so you can reach the exhaust outlet at the back of the appliance. 2. Disconnect the dryer duct from the exhaust outlet and place a sealed fine-mesh "bag" around the outlet (a discarded pair of panty hose is ideal). Dry a load of clothes. If clothes still don't dry, the cause of the problem is not the Vent system, but an internal problem with a dryer thermostat or a dryer gas burner component. Dry clothes, however, confirm a dryer malfunctioning vent system. To clear the system, continue with the following steps. 3. Remove the duct. If the duct consists of a series of attached aluminum sections with duct tape wrapped around the joints as a seal, put off the duct tape and take the sections apart. If the duct is a one-piece accordion type, simply disconnect it at both ends. 4. Remove and discard the fine-mesh bag. Clean any lint out of the dryer exhaust outlet. Then, using the end of a broom or a mop handle, push a cloth down the one piece duct or to clean the remaining lint. 5. Reconnect the dryer duct. Wrap duct around the joints of a dryer vent system if you have that type of duct. 6. Turn on the dryer and go outside to where the hoot the exhaust damper. Place your hand under the dryer hood. Do you feel a surge of warm air? If you don't, slide the dryer hood off the damper. Clean out any lint and dirt from the flapper section, which has to open freely to allow the hot, moist air to escape when the dryer is in operation. 7. If all of the above steps don't help, you may have a defective dryer thermostat.
H E L P F U L H I N T Preventing Fire Some dryer manufacturers caution that the high temperature produced in a clothes dryer sometimes can cause fabrics soiled with vegetable oil to ignite. To be on the safe side, do not put newly washed items that were soiled with vegetable oil into your dryer. Hang them up to dry instead.
