We repair the washing machine independently

Everything in life once breaks, something eternal was not invented yet. It will be a question in this article about repair of the washing machine. Depending on manufacturing firm, operating conditions and many other factors, this moment sooner or later, but will come.

Устройство стиральной машины

Device of the washing machine.

In our family the washing machine of LG, bought it according to the recommendations of several specialists. But the faultless period of operation of LG was not too big, the wife's "favourite" worked slightly more than 4 years.

Не закончив стирку, машинка остановилась

Without having finished washing, the machine stopped.

During the next washing something shot inside and everything stopped. Attempts again to start the unit were unsuccessful. Having disconnected from all communications (power supply, water, the sewerage) and having removed the back cover, it was well visible: water through the control opening of the gland, flowing down, got on the connector of connection of the electric motor - and something closed. Under repair modern washing machines I had no experience, and such "successful" moment, at last, was provided.

Rang out first of all the electric motor (there I will corrode on 10 conclusions), everything showed that "the live cursor". But to look at this part of the machine, it should be sorted completely. As afterwards I saw, the engine fastens between covers of the external drum.

Here in such mode the washing machine stopped

Снятие модуля стиральной машины

Removal of the module of the washing machine.

For further dismantling it is necessary to merge water, having opened the hatch below. On the right there is the short thin hose with the pro-barrel.

After check of the engine it was necessary to inspect the electric part further. For this purpose removed the upper cover, it fastens two bolts behind. All wires were externally in good shape, so it was necessary to remove the module (brains). It fastens the right side latches, and left - two self-tapping screws which stand under the container for laundry detergent. On the photo the module is taken.

The module externally was in perfect tune. Began to deal with it step by step. All printed circuit board from two parties is filled in with the soft kompaud.

Лицевая панель модудя стиральной машины

Front panel модудя washing machine.

Such way to find fault of nothing gave. It was necessary to open компауд. I tried to make it from the open, visible party, but understood: it will be very difficult to lift the payment, and most likely, it is impossible. On the Internet at forums esteemed as it becomes. It appears, it is necessary to do necropsy from the display, to cut windows in plastics the knife or just the soldering iron, and I started:

I remove the display payment - it at the edges keeps on latches - and I cut windows for check, in the place of inspection of the scheme.

Вскрытие модуля стиральной машины для ремонта

Opening of the module of the washing machine for repair.

It was necessary to do several windows. The site of the scheme behind the site persistently conducted to the processor. The cause of defect of the module was in it. Further repair just did not make sense. It is easier simple to buy and replace the module.

Again "went" to the Internet behind the prices of modules. They were quite acceptable (around 3 thousand). It in comparison with repair in service is 60-70% cheaper. Rang out to local masters, in one place offered б. at. (neremontirovanny) for 2.200 rub, also bought it. Put it and started short washing (30 min.). The machine worked like clock-work again. And I sat next and did not assume that water would not get on the connector again.

The gland should be changed unambiguously, and at the same time and to look at bearings (whether water got to them). Washing was made when checking the module with uncovered, so it should not be removed any more. Again I take the module, having disconnected all plugs and wires. I remove the pulley, having turned off the bolt in the center (the thread normal - right). Taking off the belt, just in case looked in what direction letters are written to put it also.

Снятие шкива стиральной машины

Removal of the pulley of the washing machine.

The pulley is removed without any efforts.

Снятие загрузочного люка стиральной машины

Removal of the loading hatch of the washing machine.

We remove the loading hatch from the obverse. It fastens two screws.

Снимаем хомут крепления резиновой гофры

We remove the collar of fastening rubber corrugations.

After that it is necessary to remove the collar which holds big rubber sealing to the corrugation.

Снимаем электроклапаны подачи воды в стиральную машину

We remove water supply electrovalves in the washing machine.

We remove water supply electrovalves. They fasten two bolts to the back wall.

Снятие контейнера для стирального порошка

Removal of the container for laundry detergent.

We remove the container for powder and suitable rubber tubes.

Снятие верхнего переднего уголка, для удобства в ремонте

Removal of the upper front corner, for convenience under repair.

It is obligatory to remove the upper level (corner) as with it not to pull out the drum. Further it is necessary to disconnect the lower fastening of the drum, their two.

Нижнее крепление барабана стиральной машины

Lower fastening of the washing machine drum.

Having pressed on the acting short moustaches, they can easily be pulled out from the place of landing. In the picture it is well visible these short moustaches. It seems, almost everything that connects the drum with the body, it is disconnected.

Верхние пружины удерживающие барабан стиральной машины

The upper springs holding the washing machine drum.

Now the drum hangs only on springs. And it is desirable to do the following stage together.

Боковые грузы барабана стиральной машины

Side loads of the washing machine drum.

Having undertaken springs, we take the drum from the machine body. The following on the course - removal of loads, and upper and side. Upper it is better to remove before extraction of the drum (the weight will decrease).

Корпус стиральной машины с электропроводкой

The body of the washing machine with the electrical wiring.

From "stiralka" there was one body. Loads are removed from the drum, further we remove the lock ring which holds sealing to the corrugation (the picture, unfortunately, did not make).

Резиновая уплотнительная гофра и стопорное кольцо стиральной машины

Rubber sealing corrugation and lock ring of the washing machine.

There is the photo, but later on which also the lock ring is well visible to the corrugation.

Барабан стиральной машины без грузов

The washing machine drum without loads.

And already without loads I took out the drum to the yard, weather allowed. Further the upper drum should be sorted. It consists of two halves which connect self-tapping screws around. These halves connect hermetically since in this drum there is water during washing.

Барабан для белья

Drum for linen.

In the plastic drum there is other drum, or the tank from stainless steel for linen. Now it is possible to look why the gland and in what it the state began to flow.

Крышка барабана стиральной машины с подшипниками и сальником

Cover of the washing machine drum with bearings and the gland.

On the photo it is well visible that during washing the iron drum rubbed (clung) about the gland and damaged it. At once I will tell that during washing the washing machine published the silent scratch. We did not pay attention to this sound, especially it appeared at the very end of washing.

На крышке барабана пошли трещины

On the cover of the drum cracks went.

Now everything was clear, it was friction on the gland. The gland from the seat was taken without any efforts. Having put this part in order, I saw that on this cover around the gland cracks went while scarcely noticeable, and it means that there is the high probability that process will go further and will begin to flow then the drum. I pointed these cracks to the photo by arrows. Bearings were in the excellent state, and water did not get to them. Began to put the new gland, but it "did not want" to sit in the slot. This question at the designer was painfully not finished. And I decided to paste it.

Доработка внутренней стороны барабана и замена сальника

Completion of inside of the drum and replacement of the gland.

For this purpose bought Dyson sealant, from silicones equal to which is not present (from experience). The gland put on glue, and at the same time and filled near bosoms with glue too. Made the same procedure and on the other hand.

Усиление наружной стороны барабана стиральной машины

Strengthening of the outer side of the washing machine drum.

I think, it will add rigidity of this part. Finished also the drainage. I inserted the tubule of suitable diameter into the opening and fixed by the same glue it on the drum cover.

Установка дренажа от контрольного отверстия сальника

Installation of the drainage from the control opening of the gland.

Look how it turned out.

Then made assembly of the washing machine upside-down.

And now it works, even, apparently, is slightly more silent. Repair was simple, cost me with glue and replacement of the gland 2.650 rubles. In our workshops one replacement of the gland or bearings costs 3.500 rubles, and I changed also the module. I think, that who wants to risk to repair the washing machine itself, article somehow will help with it. For repair the cross screw-driver, keys 10, 17 and desire is necessary. Good luck to you!


Axis: Why would you go that far and not just replace both bearings? lol their like 20 dollars??!?! And whenever installing new bearings always put them in the freezer for a couple hours first. This will shrink them down and help ease the installation...

tutanhamon faraon: а ничего что новый насос по мощности на 10 Ватт больше? Это потом не скажется на работе стиралки?

___ Sanek ___: Спасибо за видео. Интересно как избежать дальнейшего налипания мусора на магнит ?? Может прокладку (сальник) какую заменить?? Не интересует не смотрите умники ..уевы. Где заказывал насос новый???

Вячеслав Семагин: что за даун учит ремонту и куча слов не хзнаю это не знаю, проверю посмотрю

Yar K.: Вообще-то насос держится на 3-х шурупах, достаточно выкрутить их и не разбирать пол-машинки. Всякая кака достается путем выкручивания фильтра.

Anatoly Nayda: А как вы проверили вращается ли крыльчатка? Просто включили отжим без воды ?

Anatol EU: Глеб.Видео хорошее,но элементарно посмотреть в Ютуб ,как снимать,чтоб было видно.Для любой сьемки нужна хорошая подсветка-освещение.Слышал об этом когда нибудь.И не только у тебя так,многие снимают видео,толковые ребята ,а вот подать толково не могут.Реши вопрос ,раз уж зашел в Ютуб

Александр Шишканов: Вопрос - после того как в насос попала мелкая монетка, крыльчатка стала периодически слетать с оси. Можно ли исправить ситуацию не меняя весь насос в сборе? Не зря ведь наверное крыльчатка не приклеивается намертво к оси, а плотно на нее загоняется. Что посоветуете?

Жэня Гуглевский: Здравствуйте! Купил новый насос, подсоединил его напрямую и у него периодически меняется скорость вращения. Это нормально? Люфта нет.

Александр Лазарев: На видео, видно что вы крутите магнитный ротор а крыльчатка не вращается . Соответственно скрутило крыльчатку на шкиве. У меня такая же байдень. Ели снял крыльчатку, а там по мне конструкторская ошибка. Внутри крыльчатку есть упоры пластмассовые, и на шкиве выступ . Так вот выступ на шкиве не достаёт до выступов на крыльчатку. А держится только за счёт трения. И его легче провернуть.

    Good afternoon. Very useful article! There was the extraneous noise in the machine, the drum rubs about something. Read article, prepared the tool, opened the back cover, looked in the belly of the machine and understood that it is simpler to give to repair. Then smoked, scratched turnip and for cleaning of conscience opened the drainage. Neighed half an hour!!! In drain tube five buttons, two nailing, the box from under tablets full of sand and the cash card lost the floor a year ago. Now the machine works as new, pasted the card on the door as the reminder to the wife. Helps.

    And it is correct what does. There are no specialized centers with the trained specialists now. Just they "train" on our, taken to repare. Can sometime and "will train" and will normally do. Yes, I too thanks to here such "samodelkiny" too itself replaced bearings and the gland. "205" й the bearing cost 60 rubles, 206-v 90 rubles and the gland-180. And all. And three evenings slowly. Already half a year works and has to nothing to nobody. And those who on us "rolls not the podela", these are the repairmen who did not receive from us the profit for repair. Children are free. Ours hands not for boredom also grow from where it is necessary!

        Of course it is possible, as they say — any whim for your money, however the washing machine automatic machine is not the bulb, is sure almost for 100% that the electronic module of your SMA could be recovered easily at rather not big expenses, however you "urabotat" it, the result replacement, and to you still was strongly lucky that you found SECOND-HAND for reasonable price, going on the other hand, try, pick, to us works will increase.

          Sergey I shared the actions, but it does not mean that now all got into the module. I opened it and looked, on the basis of the knowledge too. And he "died", not from my survey. Also it lies without movements so far, maybe it is necessary sometime and to recover. And masters moreover good, take the machine cost floor for replacement of the gland though it is possible also the handles.

          To answer
    • Alexander

      It is not necessary to be afraid to repair independently. If of course there are hands and the head. All repairmen initially too knew nothing and were not able. I repaired the machine in one day, but not for "hour" as the master, but I know that there is no hack-work. Still I will add that the holder for the bearing in the machine LG WD 1040 is more and so more reliably.

      I find it difficult to tell in what the reason of these cracks. Maybe not up to the end on level it was exposed. Though at the extraction "behaved" steadily. After repair advised the wife not to wring out on the maximum turns.
