We’ll also offer troubleshooting tips to assist you in getting your machine back into normal operation.
The type of washer that you have will determine why a Inglis washer can’t go to the next cycle.
If the lid switch for a top-load Inglis washer is broken it will not advance to the drain or spin cycle. Inglis washers that fail to complete the cycle may be experiencing a malfunctioning timer or water-level pressure switches that are not working properly.
When using the other hand, if you have a vertical modular (VMW) top load washer, an ineffective shifter assembly or a faulty drain pump can stop the machine mid-cycle. A lot of suds may cause this type of washer to stop working before the cycle has finished.
For a front-loader an unsound door lock assembly, malfunctioning main electronic control board, or faulty motor control board can hinder the washing machine from completing the cycle. This type of Inglis washer often signals a digital error code whenever the washer’s control detects an issue and stops the cycle.
These Repairs Might Help Fix your Inglis Washer’s Problem.
Replace the Inglis washer lid switch
The lid switch in a top-load Inglis washer is a safety switch that detects whether the lid on the washer is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins. when the washer does not sense that the lid is open it will not spin or drain following the wash cycle.
Top-load washers must ensure that the Inglis lid is sealed before the motor that drives the washer can start. Top-load washers that have an open lid are not able to fill.
Replace the switch if the lid switch isn’t able to detect whether the lid is shut.
Replace the Inglis washer shifter assembly
Mounted on the bottom is the shifter assembly known as the actuator-in top-load washer. The motor in the shifter assembly shifts the drive system from the spin mode to the agitation mode. The shifter’s sensor will monitor the position of drive system during the wash cycle. The washer stops if the motor, sensor or mechanical components of its shifter assembly fail and emit an error code. Replace the Inglis shifter assembly if it malfunctions.
Change the Inglis washer lock assembly
The Inglis door lock assembly for the front-load washer has the safety switch which detects when the door to the washer is closed, a latch and a locking mechanism. The door will not close should any of these components fail when the door is opened. If one of the components fails while the door shut, it won’t be able to open. If any component is damaged, you should replace the entire assembly.
Replace the Inglis main control board for the washer
The main Inglis electronic controller board, also referred to as the mother board or the mother board, is responsible for the timing and execution of washer component functions. It is responsible for the fill valves along with the drive motor and the drain pump.
Replace the Inglis washer timer
The timer — sometimes called a cycle selectoris the dial that which you set to select the cycle on a Inglis washing machine that has mechanical controls. The timer causes the Inglis washer run through its cycles, starting from initial filling to its final spin. Replace the timer in the event that it fails to let the washer move through its cycles.
Inglis washer drain pump may be replaced or repaired
The Inglis drain pumps are used to remove water from washers at the proper times during wash cycles. The pump’s bearing can seize or fail, and the seal could fail or the impeller blades could break. The belt that drives belt-driven pumps can break, and the pulley can shear off. A loud hum when the washer is stuffed with water is the most common sign of a damaged pump. In some cases you can fix the pump by clearing it of any debris as well as fixing wiring problems or replacing an impeller. If the pump can’t be repaired or rebuilt in any way, replace it.
Replace the Inglis motor control board for the washer.
The Inglis motor control board is a control circuit board in a front-load washer which is usually located in the lowest part of the washer close to the drive motor. It controls the speed of the motor that drives it and the direction it is directed to for action of the tumble and spin. If the motor does not run it’s possible that the motor control board could need to be replaced.
Replace the Inglis washer water level pressure switch
The Inglis water level pressure switch determines the water level in the washer. The washer is not able to fill as it should if the water-level pressure sensor is damaged. It could not be filled completely or overfill until it overflows. If the pressure control doesn’t precisely detect and regulate the level of water inside the Inglis washer, replace it.
