How to tell if you have a worn tub bearing or a broken drum suport in your front loading washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 30 June 2011 · 1,470 views

Do this test...
open washer door and grab the top edge of the inner wash basket
push straight up on the basket while steadying the outer drum with your other hand
is there any lateral movement? Or is it tight and secure?
hope for the latter, because the former is the telltale sign of a worn bearing, a broken support spider or both...not worth repair if this is the case.

If all is good here, go around back and take off the cover. Look for a loose pulley on the basket shaft.
of course the counterweights could be loose but you don't need me to tell you how to check this.

How to troubleshoot an F28 error code in a Whirlpool Duet Sport washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 30 June 2011 · 2,250 views

OK ... going by memory here.

- First ohm out your motor. You should have approx 6 ohms between 1-2,1-3 and 2-3. You should also get 120 ohms on 5-6 which is the tach on the motor. If that is good ...

- Open up the little flap on the MCU board. Start a regular wash cycle and check for voltages at the MCU. On the pink wires you should get 120v. (With the wires connected to the MCU - don't disconnect them to check the voltage.) On the connector with the little blue wires - you should have 5 vDC.

- If you are getting the correct voltages at the MCU and the motor ohms out good, then you have a bad MCU.

- If you are not getting those readings at the MCU, then check continuity on the blue wires and the 2 pink wires from the CCU to the MCU.

- If you have continuity on all wires and the connections look good, then you have a bad CCU.

How to fix a F71 error code on a Maytag MHWE300VW12 front-load washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 28 June 2011 · 3,425 views

Techsheet should be inside unit (behind lower panel) which will explain failcodes - F71 shows a heartbeat failure, and is usually caused by a failed motor controller

How to fix a Maytag side-by-side MZD2768GE refrigerator that's freezing food in the beer compartment

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 24 June 2011 · 948 views

... IS THIS THE SAME PROBLEM AS GE AND THEIR DAMPER MOTORS?



Yes. There's a tech bulletin out on this. You need to replace the autodamper assembly.

One year warranty on the part and you can return it for a refund if it doesn't fix the problem.
