Frost forms only on fan motor cover.  Sears servicer told the lady to just knock the frost off with a wooden spoon.  He said it was suppose to be that way.  I don't think so.

The So called Sears technician needs to be knocked on the head with a wooden spoon. 

 

This unit was built by LG.  THe tech should have called "STAC"  (Sears Technical Assistance Center) to see if there are any service bulletins on this problem.

 

Check for good door seals and that the doors close tightly.   Check that the evaporator fan in the freezer runs okay. Remove the evaporator cover in the freezer and check the evaporator and see if the frost is in one spot or on the whole evaporator.

Absolutely amazing. How much did it cost to recieve such highly technical advice?

Provided no warm air intrusion and the auto damper in the fresh food section multi-duct is working properly (nothing freezing in the crispers), could be an air flow issue caused by the evaporator fan motor, Main PCB, or both.

 

Note for tool bag:  Pick up that Craftsman Wooden Spoon.  (Available only at Sears)

Appears to be built 2011

 

I am *not* privy to Sears/Kenmore servicer information but...

 

This LG-built 3 door model---has had known issues (in 2011)

 

Most likely needs...

 

MAIN BOARD: EBR52304408

 

GRILLEFAN ASSY (cannot find correct part number)


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
