Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 31 May 2011 · 1,007 views

Check the integrity of the black hose leading to the pressure switch off the bottom of the tub...should be air-tight, no holes or perforations.
also, blow from the switch back down to the point where it connects to the tub to clear any possible clogs or other obstructions...

How to replace the Hall Sensor on an LG WM2277HW washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 23 May 2011 · 3,205 views
LG, Washer, Hall sensor, RPS
Commonly accompanies by the infamous LE error code.

The Hall Effect sensor is easily removed and replaced.
You’ll have to remove the rotor and stator to access the sensor.
The rotor is attached to the shaft by one large bolt.
When replacing the rotor, you’ll probably need a helper to hold
the drum in place when you push the rotor onto the shaft.
Otherwise, the drum may move forward enough to make replacing the bolt difficult.
The helper can also hold the drum from turning while you tighten the bolt.

Before going to this trouble, check the connector on the main board.
It is the red connector closest to the heat sink.
Pull the connector off and verify the board is receiving a signal from the sensor.

How to remove the front panel on a Whirlpool Duet Sport washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 18 May 2011 · 3,290 views

For service manuals and lots of other goodies,
become an Apprentice==> http://appliantology.org/apprentice/


from the Whirlpool Duet Service Manual:

Removing the washer front panel will require that the door switch be removed
and the boot be separated completely from the front panel opening.
The console must also be removed.

Access to these components requires that the top of the washer be removed.

Removing the Washer Top
Three screws secure the washer top at the back of the washer.
Remove the three screws and lift the top from the washer. (Fig. 4-4)

Removing the Console from the Cabinet
Disconnect the Touch Pad/LED Assembly ribbon connector from the left side of the Central Control Unit (Fig. 4-5)
and release it from the wiring harness brackets on the right side of the washer top.
Remove the detergent dispenser drawer by pressing down on the release tab at the back of the drawer (Fig. 4- 6A)
and pulling it completely out of the washer

Once the drawer is removed, remove the screw in the recessed hole next to the drawer opening.
Release the tab securing the right side of the console to the washer (Fig. 4-6B).

Open the washer door and place a flat-bladed screwdriver into the slot in the bottom center of the console (Fig. 4-6C).
Push the console up to release center console tab.
Be sure the ribbon cable clears the cabinet frame.

Removing the Touch Pad/LED Assembly from the Console
The Touch Pad/LED Assembly is removed as a single unit and contains the Push Buttons, LEDs, cable, etc. (Fig. 4-7A)
The buttons can be replaced separately as shown in Fig. 4-7B.

The washer door can be removed by removing the upper left shield cover and hinge cover.
Open the door and remove three screws securing the door hinge to the washer front and lifting upward.
Access to the door switch requires that the water seal boot be removed from the front of the washer. (Fig. 4-11)
Use a flat bladed screwdriver at the location of the retainer spring and pull the retainer forward
and then off the perimeter of the boot.
Ease the edge of the boot off of the lip of the washer front near the door switch. (Fig. 4-12)
Remove enough of the boot to gain access to the door switch behind the washer front panel.
The door switch is secured to the washer front panel with three screws.
Once these screws are removed, the door switch will remain in place until
it is lifted slightly and pulled back from the washer front panel

Next, remove the three screws securing the toe panel to the front of the washer (Fig. 4-14)
and remove the toe panel by lifting slightly and pulling forward.

Remove the two screws securing the bottom of the front panel to the washer,
and the two screws securing the top of the front panel to the washer.

The front panel can now be removed from the washer. (Fig. 4-15) :whistling:
