As I suspected... Thanks for the video. That will be helpful. 

In Topic: Haier Dehumidifier model HDN305 won't start

What, no takers on the dehumidifer problem? Perhaps I should offer a case of Hitachino Nest White Ale as an incentive?


So I figured I'm on my own with this one, and after testing the peripheral stuff without any indications of faults, I go ahead and order a new Main Control board, which the Repair Clinic lists as part # AC-5210-149. But when it arrives it takes me about 3 seconds to recognize that it's not the same board that's in my belly-up machine. WTF?


Here's a link to a picture of my control board and I'm hoping someone can identify it and suggest the correct replacement.  http://sdrv.ms/19M9DHm


Or, if the board I have can't be found, is there a way that I can use the listed AC-5210-149 board in this machine?

In Topic: Kenmore Advantage Washer 110.92273100 - Bad Brakes

27 February 2013 - 06:14 PM

Thanks for all the replies. Using the info from the study course manual and the suggested solution to grease the brake drum, perhaps that would solve the problem. However, I'm not sure I would want to hold the drum during a spin cycle. Anyway... here's what happened after my first post and before I received and replies:


As I mentioned, I had turned the machine over and with it set in spin mode, powered it on and off a few times while looking at the mechanism. All I could see was the violent jerk as the brakes applied and was no closer to understanding what caused the problem than when I was looking at the tub from above. So later I reconnected the hoses and put the machine back in place and then decided to try the spin cycle once again. Surprise! The brake-slam condition had vanished and the drum took about one and a half turns to gracefully stop. Now, after that, I've gone through a complete wash cycle several times without any problem.


It fixed itself. It's alive! :woot:


I have no idea what happened but it seems to be working normally so I'm going to go with it "as is" until something else goes wrong. But out of curiosity, does anyone have any ideas what occurred?


Thanks again to all who offered there time and knowledge to help me out.

Ahh-So... Thank you Fermented Grand Master for the quick and deadly accurate response. I have one further question: While I believe it is good meditation practice to let my grandson hold the PTS button for the complete drying cycle, is any damage to the dryer likely by continuing this practice?
