Washing Machine Diagram / August 28, 2018 / Helene Casper.
Excessive force can result in centrifugal stresses that could cause the appliance to move or walk across the floor. Most automatic washers are equipped with an off-balance or out-of-balance switch that stops the washer from spinning and causes a buzzing sound at any point in the cycle when an off-balance condition occurs. On some of the appliances, the master timer knob switch was in series with a single-pole double solenoid.
Dishwashers use pressure switches that are similar to those used in washing machines. However, instead of having one switching point, they have multiple levels. For example, a two-position switch may switch at 10cm and 15cm of water, while a three-position switch may trip at 15cm, 25cm and 35cm of water.
These switches also look a lot like washing machine pressure switches, except they have multiple electrical terminals (six or even nine) and don't have external level adjustment. However, some have screwdriver adjustment for both the trip levels and the hysteresis. When extracting the pressure switch from a washing machine, be careful that you don't also inadvertently
It’s always possible somebody somewhere has posted a wiring diagram on a forum in response to a request, but generally I would think the odds of finding one are pretty low. The best thing to search in Google for (if you haven’t already tried) would be the words, wiring diagram, or wiring schematic, followed by the model number of your appliance ( Where to find the proper model number and serial number on a washing machine ). There are some repair manuals being sold but these are very general and not model specific and written by third parties. All the ones I’ve seen are very much out of date although they may well still contain some useful general advice and knowledge.
