Maytag Bravos POS Model # MVWB300WQ0 Washer or Big square trash can

5 posts in this topic

OK, these Whirltag Cabrio/ Bravos/ Oasis washers or going to make me pull my hair out!

 

 Customer says machine stops mid cycle, displays NO error codes.

 

Trip#1, Ran machine through an entire cycle, machine worked perfect, even put machine in diagnostic mode, couldn't get a single error code to come up.

 

Customer says she got three loads of laundry done, 4th one stopped mid cycle with the "dreaded F1 error code."

 

Checked the tech sheet and led me to order a new electronic control. 

 

Trip#2 Ordered and installed electronic control "W10258402", Now I get an "F51" error code. 

 

Pulled the wash basket, found a sock and a pair of underpants at bottom of outer tub by the sump cover.  Removed the clothes from the outer tub. Reinstalled wash basket and made sure the rotor at the bottom of the machine was good and tight and inspected all wiring going from the electronic control to the stator and RPS sensor. No wiring frayed or out of place.  Gave the customer the quote for a new RPS sensor and the lower wiring harness, customer said forget it, she's going to buy a new washer, perhaps a Speed Queen top load washer.

 

I will no longer recommend these SOB POS washers to anyone now. Starting to get fed up with all Whirlpool products of late. Definitely Whirlpool is no longer the comapny it used to be. And why the hell they being so selective on who does their frigging warranty work?

When was the machine in question manufactured (year)?

2010 or something. Not really sure since Whirlpool also changed their serial number layout.  Again, DUMB.

Sh2sh2 is exactly correct on that above, last time before this cycle that Whirlpool used numbers was 1989.

 

Whirlpool recycles the sequence of numbers and letter codes every 30 years, (0-9 & A-Z omitting some letters that are easily confused - I,N,O,Q,V,Z).  After 2019 the next time numbers will be used again should be 2040.   I'm a little unsure about the use of "X", my list shows it used in 1990 and going to be used for 2020.
