Draining ok, drum moves when you turn it by hand, during the spin cycle the drum starts to turn but then stops, trys again and then stops.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like the belt is slipping or the motor is malfunctioning. Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor which is malfunctioning, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed rather than replacing the motor. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

I have a Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and the brushes spin, then stop. I turn it off and when I re-start, the brushes do not spin until I push foreward. The it spins and stops again. Both belts are...


The reason for the brushes to stop when it is above any surface is there is a switch in the handle that stops the brushes so it dont burn your motor up it may have a faulty switch.

Drum not turning


If you are certain that the motor was turning, then the only things that come to mind are that:
  1. The belt is stretched or worn-Replace as there is no adjustment.
  2. The drum is stalled, either because it has seized, or there is something stuck in the drum.
  3. The motor brushes are worn, and will not cope with load of drum, check brushes.
Try running it on fast spin without the belt on , if it spins o/k, then that would indicate the motor is o/k.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thanks.

Maytag atlantis wont spin cycle


this could be one of three things, 1. Rinse hold (an option to save the washing sitting crumpled when you are out) release the rinse hold button and it will spin.
2. You have a blocked drain or uneven load (if a washing machine spins with a full load of water in it it would dance around your kitchen and eventually break apart the weight is too much, it has to remove the water to a level within a set time or it will stop, or if its a uneven load it will attempet 3-4 times start a spin.
3. your motor brushes are worn (brushes last around 2-3 years depending on use) or board failure, first signs of this can be it will not spin, then it will not rotate at all try to spin it with no load (no washing) then add a couple of wet towels. if no spin it could be either of the two best way to check the brushes is to remove them and check the length they start around an inch long.
Always isolate the electrical supply when removing things from the machine.

Carbon Brushes wearing out quickly on Kirby Heritage II


4 possible reasons.
1 – one or both bearings are worn so armature (rotating part) wobbles as it is spinning and cause motor brushes to wear fast. Solution – change bearings too.
2 – Whoever replaced brushes – did not use some brush seating sticks to make cmutator smother and contour brushes to the shape of the comutator (not likely). Solution – appropriately install new set of brushes.
3 – Comutator is so warped that seating sticks do not help anymore – solution – new armature or turn the old armature.
4 – The fact that ONLY ONE brush was worn may mean that there is something wrong with the brush or housing. Maybe it could not move freely within the housing? I think this may be most likely cause it it may be a combination of all 4.Is it worth to fix? Hmm depends how much will it be. If this is 100+ - I’d say get newer Kirby for 300 ad enjoy the tech drive (Heritage does not have tech drive so it is much harder to vacuum with than the newer models)

Motor will not spin both ways


Starts fine then stalls, I would check the belt,gear case and also for a seized pump bearing. Pull the machine out and remove the access panel with a 5/16 socket and put it into spin, try to watch as you start the cycle. Then if you don't see any problems tilt the machine back and examine the belt for wear, glazing, cracks and rotate the belt to find any frozen items, gear case and pump.
