It is better to contact a professional for diagnostics and prevention of the washing machine. Check all periphery and control module. Usually the capacitor in the periphery may fail, it looks like a surge protector.

Good day! Check the drum for rotation. If the drum is jammed, then the reason is either a foreign object that got between the tank and the drum through the rubber cuff of the hatch (a piece of linen, etc.) or the broken bearings are jammed. The foreign object can be removed through the heating element hole. In the case of bearings, it is advisable to call a specialist. The belt may come loose due to overload or imbalance in the laundry. Remove one of the walls and check the drive belt. If it flew off, then install it in place. Replace if broken. You can pick up a new belt by the markings on the old one, which gives information about the length of the belt, the number of wedges and their height. Check heating element. Check the motor.
Capacitor may be defective on older models.

Why is the fan humming but not spinning??

Does your little helper begin to hum and exude an unpleasant scent when turned on? Another common fan breakdown is the blades that do not spin. Why is this happening, after all yesterday the device worked properly. Unfortunately, many users face such a problem, especially with the active use of the device. Today we will figure out why the fan is humming, but not spinning?

hums, does, twist

If the floor fan does not turn on and the external examination does not give results, then you will have to spin the device. To do this, prepare a screwdriver and pliers in advance. By the way, this method is suitable for those who are concerned about why the floor fan is spinning slowly. Reanimation of the device is carried out in several steps:

Remove the grill that covers the fan blades. Typically, the mesh is secured with three latches.

Next, remove the impeller. It is fixed with a plastic nut. It must be unscrewed. Be careful not to damage the parts. Otherwise, you will have to come up with an alternative to the nut. By the way, also carefully remove the impeller. In inexpensive fans, plastic elements quickly fail under the influence of heat and air. As a result, the impeller can crumble right in your hands.

Now you need to disassemble the case. First, remove the nut that secures the rear grille. Then gradually remove the screws, first from the front and then from the back of the fan.

Once you get to the casing of the device, you can remove it. In front of you will be the engine and gearbox. The last piece is made of plastic. A capacitor is attached to it. It is necessary to start the engine in operation.

The next step is to remove the gearbox. It is fastened with several screws. After unscrewing them, you can easily remove the gearbox with all the filling.

Next, remove the screws that connect the motor housing to the stator. We can now remove the front and back of the box. On the way you will come across rubber bands, put them in a separate container. Small screws can also be placed there.

Now we start cleaning the bearing itself and the surface around it. We remove dirt with the help of ordinary matter. Then you should degrease the surface, acetone will do, and wipe everything dry. To the center of the bearing, you need to drip from the oil can.

Thus, you remove the grease that seeps into the engine. As a result, it gets jammed and the fan blades stop spinning. The described process can be repeated for a bench-top device, since they are arranged in the same way.

It buzzes and does not drain. The first thing to check is whether a foreign object is interfering with the drain pump. Unscrew the drain plug-filter (it is at the bottom right) and carefully inspect the opened space. The pump impeller should be free from rotation.

most likely a blockage

Try to clean the drain path. If the pump does not help for replacement.

Clean the filter of the drain pump and especially pay attention to the drain pipe between the tank and the pump, sometimes small things get in socks, handkerchiefs, etc.

if it buzzes when starting, but does not erase, then watch the engine belt, brushes or the engine itself. If it behaves like this when draining. then watch the pump, clean the filter and drain. Well, if the problem is there and there, then most likely. Control block

The door of the washing machine will not open because there is water in the washing machine. It is necessary to drain the water through the emergency drain. Then open the machine and make sure that the motor is spinning. If it is spinning and there is no washing machine drum, then a possible reason: the belt tension is loose, or the problem is in the drum bearing. The belt needs to be tightened. If the motor hums, but does not turn, then a possible reason is the destruction of its bearings, as well as in the control unit of the machine and repair by a master is necessary.

Good evening, check the drain pump and pipe.

Clean the filter and the drain hose. Well, look at the pump.

Perhaps the cause of this phenomenon was the clogging of the drain filter. Finding and retrieving this component for self-cleaning is easy in your model. But if you have any doubts. call the master.

The motor is defective, it may be all by replacing the brushes. repair about 1500-2000r

First, try cleaning the filter and drain hose. If it doesn’t help, call the wizard

To begin with, you should pay attention to the drain path, namely, the pipes, filter and pump! Clean everything, rinse, repeat, if everything is the same, then change the pump, or the triac burned out on the board

Replace drain pump. Alternatively, there is a problem with the pump relay on the control unit

Cleaning the filter if replacing the pump does not help.

Good day!
In your case, cleaning the drain path will not help. You need to change the drain pump otherwise it will periodically jam.

Clean the filter of the drain pump, pipes, blow out the drain hose. If the problem recurs, replace the drain pump.

Examine the drain hose carefully for kinks or blockages. This can prevent the machine from doing its job properly. Since you have already puzzled yourself with this question, it will not be superfluous to clean the hose for prevention. Check if the siphon is clogged (in case of drainage through it).
If you are worried about why the machine does not drain, know that the cause may be a clogged filter. The culprit for the blockage can be small and larger parts: paper, bra bones, coins, pins, buttons and other accessories. This will make it difficult or even stop the drainage of water. Before cleaning, keep in mind that water will pour out immediately after removing the filter. A clogged filter can cause more serious damage, so pay attention to this part more often.

The starter turns, but does not turn the engine: reasons for what to do when the starter clicks and does not respond

From many motorists, I often hear the question: “Why does the starter turn, but does not turn the engine when I turn the ignition key?” Or it happens that the starter does not react at all to the turn of the ignition key, or the starting device is silent, hums, makes a click, but the engine does not start. If the car owner is completely unfamiliar with the technical features of his car, then he will not even approximately be able to identify the reason why the engine in the car did not start. This is especially unnerving if the car stalled in a deserted place and there is simply no one to help him.

What does the starter crank? This is the crown of the flywheel, with the help of which the force is transmitted to the engine itself.

The most common reason why the starter turns, but the engine does not turn, is a weak charge of the car battery, an open in the electrical wire, a breakdown of the retractor relay, bendix and other parts of the starting device, as well as a lack of fuel.

It is very useful for absolutely any driver to know what to do when the starter does not turn the engine and how to fix the malfunctions on his own. The fact that the device does not spin does not mean at all that it cannot be repaired and the car cannot be started.

In the article I will tell you in detail how to understand what the starter does not turn, what to do, what malfunctions there are, how to repair and fix the breakdown with your own hands, how to start the car if it does not turn the starting device. I promise it will be interesting!

In order to understand why you turn on the ignition, but the starter does not turn, I will briefly describe the device and how it works.

Peeling off magnets

A rare breakdown that appears in devices with permanent magnets (and they are installed on most modern cars). In this case, when turning the ignition key, a clear click is heard, the starter does not turn.

This is where it is best to contact an auto repairman, as you can reverse the polarity when gluing the magnets in place.

Other malfunctions

I’ll tell you about other reasons why the starter does not start on the car.

Candles. With long attempts to start the engine, the candles could be flooded, or there is no spark on them. In 1 case, it is recommended to turn on the starter for a short time with the accelerator pedal pressed, so you can dry the candles yourself. If this does not correct the situation, then the candles should be unscrewed and replaced with dry ones. In case 2, it is necessary to inspect the wires and the ignition coil for a malfunction. You can also check: remove the candles, put a wire on it and bring it to the motor. When the internal combustion engine is started, a spark should form on the spark plug. Do the same with the ignition coil in the carburetor motor.

Timing belt. If there is a break in the timing belt, then in this case it will be very easy for the starter to turn the engine. Here you will either have to replace the timing belt (or half the motor, if the pistons “met” the valves), or repair it (if it jumps over several teeth). Do not forget to check the timing marks, because when replacing this part, they are sometimes set incorrectly.

Engine air filter heavily soiled. Check its condition and, if necessary, replace it with a new one.

Crankshaft sensor defective. Check sensor contacts, clean or replace.

Jamming of car parts. This can happen to the air conditioning compressor, generator, power steering. Such malfunctions can be indicated by high voltage of the drive belt when starting the motor.

Slipping of the freewheel clutch of the starter drive. In this case, it is impossible to repair the starter, you need to replace the drive with a new one.

The drive runs hard on the shaft thread. It is recommended to clean the thread and apply machine oil to it.

Small bushing size selected. In this case, the starter does not turn on the “hot” one, but turns on a cold engine. This is due to the fact that when heated, the holes of the bushings decrease, which leads to jamming of the device.

Dampness. In the presence of high humidity under the hood, the starter can twist and click, but the engine will not start. To start a car, it must be dried and the cause of the appearance of moisture must be identified.

On-board computer error. In this case, it will be displayed on the instrument panel. Here you need to carry out diagnostics, or install a new firmware.

There is no fuel in the tank, and the petrol level values ​​on the instrument panel are incorrect.

Breakage of the starter drive plug. The plug is the part of the bendix that connects to the anchor of the solenoid relay. The fork helps the pinion to move out and engage with the flywheel. But if the fork is faulty, then the bendix will not move and there will be no engagement with the flywheel. Therefore, even if the starter is running, the engine will not be able to spin in any way. And if the starter armature does not turn, then check the contacts, the ignition contact group and the battery capacity.

Here it is necessary to remove the starter from the car and replace the entire bendix on it. But before that, you can connect the device directly to the battery and check if the gear extends or not. If the removed starter does not turn directly, then the problem is not only in the bendix.

Weakening of the buffer spring. When the spring is weakened, the bendix gear will not be able to mesh with the flywheel teeth. And when the buffer spring is not fully compressed, a grinding sound will be heard during operation of the device, indicating that there is no contact with the flywheel crown. Either the starter knocks, but does not twist (metal knock).

The alarm is on. If the car is not removed from the “signaling”, then it can block the fuel pump.

Motor hums/buzzes but wont run fix it.

Foreign object in the exhaust pipe. If there is snow or other foreign matter in it, then starting the engine can be extremely difficult.

High resistance to crankshaft rotation. This can be facilitated by scuffing marks on the bearing shells, shafts, and mechanisms of the cylinder-piston group. In this case, it is necessary to carry out a check: put the top gear (on the “mechanics”), push the car and turn the ignition key. On the machine, you must try to crank the motor by the drive pulley mounting bolt. If the motor turns out to be easy to crank, then you should look for other causes of malfunctions.

Unsuccessful hijacking. If you suspect that the criminals wanted to steal the car, but could not start it and broke something in it. In this case, you need to contact a car service for diagnostics.

Trambler. It will not be superfluous to inspect the device responsible for the formation of a spark at the right time. It should be free of cracks, carbon deposits and various chips.

Throttle valve. This applies to cars with a carburetor. Check throttle valves and nozzles. If they are clogged, the fuel will not flow into the chamber. In this case, it is necessary to clean the blockages with an iron brush and blow with a cylinder of compressed air.

Let’s move on to a more detailed description of the reasons why the starter does not turn.

How to understand that the starter is not turning?

Symptoms of malfunctions associated directly with the starting device:

  • When turning the key in the ignition lock, the starter is silent, the engine will not start.
  • The starter motor works, but the car does not work.
  • The starter makes specific sounds (clicks, buzzes, squeaks, squeals, clicks, hums, whistles, crackles, claps, noises), but does not turn the engine.
  • The starter turns the crankshaft very slowly, but the engine itself will not start.
  • Metal grinding, gears crackling and knocking are heard.

Battery (accumulator)

The most common reason for starting the engine is a high freezing temperature or a dead battery. If it is freezing, the engine oil will thicken, which will make the engine difficult to rotate. In this case, the oil must be changed to a less viscous one. You can read about this in this article: EVERYTHING about engine oil 5w30 and 5w40: what is the difference, what is better, what is thicker and thinner, comparison

If all the electronics in the car does not work, then this means that the battery is severely discharged. In this case, the starter will not start. there will be only one click and a complete shutdown of all the electronics of the car (the devices do not light up). As they say, the check does not light, the starter does not turn, the car does not start.

If the battery terminals are oxidized or the fastening is loose, then until you knock on the starter, it will not start.

If the starter does not turn for a long time, then look for a malfunction in the battery, or the device overheated, and there was a mechanical failure of its parts.

Also note that if the car suddenly stalled and does not turn the starter, it means that the battery is almost “dead”. This, by the way, will be indicated by the fact that the lights on the dashboard do not light up.

In many modern car alarms, at a voltage level of less than 10 V, the electrical circuit of the device is blocked. And in some cars, the starter may not start due to a software error in the immobilizer. You can identify this cause by starting the device directly from the battery. Also, due to a problem in the immobilizer, the car can start and immediately stall, and the engine does not react to remote start in any way.

In any case, you need to monitor the level of the battery and recharge it when it sits down.

Diagnostics of wires

If the internal combustion engine does not start, then before removing the starter and diagnosing it, it is necessary to check the power wires and contacts. What malfunctions can there be in the electrics when the starter does not turn?

Weak (bad) mass of the engine with the body. At the same time, a faint click will be heard at startup, then the indicators on the dashboard will go out. If you try to start the car again, then nothing may happen at all (in most cases).

How to check for a bad mass? You will need an assistant for this.

  • The first person, using the cigarette lighter wire, connects the battery ground to the motor housing.
  • The second person turns the ignition key to the right until it stops.
  • If the problem was poor weight, then the starter will operate normally.

Weak fastening of the wires connected to the starter. To check, follow these steps:

  • Remove the terminals from the battery, unscrew all fasteners on the starter.
  • Wipe all connections and fasteners with a dry, clean cloth.
  • Contacts can be processed with WD-40.
  • Retighten all the nuts, but do not overtighten so as not to break the threads.

Note that if the retractor relay wire is connected using a connector, then it is necessary to bend the tongue so that the connection is as tight as possible. If, after these actions, the motor starts up, this means that the reason was in the contacts.

Why does the starter relay and retractor click?

All over the world, various electrical appliances make clicking sounds during operation. When this sound is heard, it indicates that the device is working (even partially).

The starter relay works on the principle of an electromagnetic contact connection. When a current is applied to the starting device, then opposite-pole charges move along the terminals and make a popping sound.

For the starter to work properly, all mechanisms must be functional. It:

Electric Motor Doesn’t Spin but HUMS/Buzzes compressors etc

  • Battery.
  • Contact relay.
  • Egnition lock.
  • Solenoid relay.

When the ignition key is turned, the clicks can be many times in a row, the starter does not turn, the relay clicks or does not click. If this is present, then you should check the wires and contacts for the presence of oxidation and reliable fastening.

The culprit that the starter does not start may be a weak battery charge. The battery charge must be at least 9 V, this can be checked with a voltmeter, and if it is not there, then the headlights with a dead battery will shine weaker. Otherwise, charge the battery.

Blockage in the system

To remove a blockage in the drain filter, proceed as follows:

  • On the bottom of the front panel, open the small hatch by pressing the latches.
  • Unscrew the filter, drain the water into a container and clean the filter from debris.
  • Reinstall the part.

Belt problems

In order to check the drive belt, you need to remove the rear panel of the CM. Proceed consistently:

  • Disconnect the plug from the socket by de-energizing the machine.
  • Shut off the water supply and disconnect the intake hose (be careful, there may be water in it).
  • Take a screwdriver, unscrew the screws on the back cover.
  • After removing the panel, inspect the belt. If it is frayed or fell off, it must be reinstalled. In case of wear, put on a new element.
  • First put the belt on the small pulley of the electric motor, then, while rotating the pulley of the drum, put the belt on it.
  • Installation is complete, screw the panel back into place.

Heating element malfunction, foreign object

These two faults can be eliminated at the same time:

  • Remove the back cover as described above. In some models, the heating element is located behind the front panel: Samsung, Bosch, Siemens.
  • There is a heating element under the tank. To check it, you need to connect a multimeter to the contacts and measure the resistance.
  • When you are convinced of the problem, disconnect the wires from the heater.
  • Unscrew the central nut (not completely) and push the bolt inward.
  • Prying the edges, pull the element out.
  • Now through the hole you can check if there is a foreign object inside, and get it out.
  • Install the new heating element in the reverse order.


To eliminate the imbalance, you need to stop the program. If there is water in the tank, it must be drained. To do this, unscrew the drain filter. it is located behind the hatch under the front panel. Read more on how to do this below.

Now open the door and distribute the laundry evenly over the drum.

CM works, but does not twist

If you do not know why the washing machine works, but the drum does not spin, here are several reasons:

  • The washer has collected water, but the drum does not rotate. Most likely, the heating element burned out.
  • Malfunction of the triac on the module, which is responsible for the operation of the engine. In this case, the program starts, but the motor does not receive a command to rotate. Electric brushes could also burn out.

The machine does not spin, but it draws water

Why did the machine collect water, but the drum does not rotate? You must immediately drain the water and try to turn the drum by hand. If it doesn’t turn with its hands, it’s probably jammed.

For what reasons the problem happened:

  • The drive belt has torn or slipped off and is wrapped around the pulley. This was the reason for the jam.
  • An object is stuck between the tub and drum. It could have been any items that fell out of s.
  • The drum bearing has deteriorated, so it cannot rotate normally.

In most cases, bearings fail due to prolonged use, drum overload, and if the oil seal has never been lubricated.

Engine problems

You do not have to replace the panel, as the motor is also in the back. Inspect its wiring for damage.

Then you need to remove the motor to inspect the brushes and other parts.

  • Disconnect motor wires.
  • Unscrew the fastening bolts.
  • Pull out the motor and its brushes. If they are worn out, new parts must be installed. The same applies to lamellas and windings. They are checked last if the brushes are okay.
  • Inspect the tachogenerator. It is attached to the motor housing. If faulty. replace.

CM does not work, the drum does not spin

The washing machine may not work at all for the following reasons:

  • Electronic module defective. As a result, the engine does not receive a command to start work.
  • Breakdown of the heating element. If the heater breaks down, the machine may not only wash in cold water, but may not work at all. Why is this happening? In case of scale formation and overheating, the heating element can explode and block the operation of the SMA.
