Question and Answers

Q:

Washer will not spin at highest speed KAWS700EQ0 Kitchenaid Direct-drive home washers

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kitchenaid Washer, Model: KAWS700EQ0. From reviewing the details on your model, since the washer works in the slow speed spin, the transmission and other drive components are apparently okay. This type of high speed spin failure could be caused by a failed timer, a bad motor start switch, or failed windings in the drive motor. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this type of failure. If you are able to continue to use the washer for a while with the slow spin speed, then you may be able to hold off on a repair. Smaller loads may be necessary when using that slower spin speed. Based on the age of this washer, you may consider replacing it instead of the paying for a repair.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the washer to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Thank you. I think I will check the output of the timer to see if it is sending power to the motor/start switch. I have the schematic on the washer. I have put on a used motor, with start switch and capacitor thinking it was probably one of the three. Still does the same thing. I bought another washer anyway so I kept this as a spare. Do you think checking the timer output to the motor would be a good check or do you think its a waste of time since it is probably the timer anyway?
