CLOTHES WASHER REPAIR HELP
To understand how an automatic clothes washer operates, you must
familiarize yourself with the function of three basic components:
the timer, the motor, and the solenoid.
A washer timer is nothing more than a group of switches that turn
electrical components on and off. These switches are moved by a
cam which is rotated by the timer's motor drive. Timer motors are
called synchronous because they are timed to the unvarying cycles
of current in the power supply. It is not possible to use the synchronous
motor's movement without modification, however. The washer motor's
movement is relatively slow, too slow to handle the number of contacts
that must be sequenced or opened and closed together. Therefore,
an escapement mechanism is attached to the synchronous motor. Though
nothing more than a gear train with a spring mechanism, the escapement
mechanism moves the timer cam in jerks rather than in a slow smooth
movement. The jerking action causes the contacts to open and close
rapidly, increasing their life and providing proper sequencing.
The second primary component is the washer motor. Usually a split-phase
or capacitor type, the washer motor is generally reversible. The
washer design utilizes a special spring in the transmission to turn
the washer motor in one direction for agitation and in the reverse
direction for the washer spin cycle.
The third essential component is the washer solenoid. A solenoid
is a coil of wire, formed to concentrate the magnetic force that
surrounds individual wires when current flows through them. Depending
upon the type and size of the windings and the amount of current
involved, the magnetic force exerted can be quite strong. The washer
solenoid uses this force to move an armature or plunger. In this
way, the washer solenoid transforms electrical energy to mechanical
motion. Solenoids can control many phases of appliance operation,
and they are used for several different purposes in automatic washers.
