remove back panel, speed board is on the base,on the right hand side

grasp the drum from the back, pull it towards that board,watch where it may contact that board

see if there is any wiring is routed in that spot,if so, check those wires for breaks or pinch marks

check heater to ground, e6* are heat issues, and if it does it on start up. its prolly something in the heater circuit that is grounded.

crappy heater in that machine, the frame that holds the heater in place tends to warp, causing the heater to touch the heater housing.

if you find a grounded heater on these machines, after changing the heater, always run the machine on air fluff, just to ensure the contacts on the heater relay are not fused, seen it a few times already

#304281 Fridgidaire Front Load washer won't spin (LAF3511KW0)

yeah,thats the board on the left, you need to look at any wiring that may have been smashed by tub movement, you prolly have a broken wire inside the insulation

#304072 LG Dishwasher LDF7551ST making noise

Posted by BrntToast on 24 September 2014 - 06:43 PM

11 days past warranty?  do you mean one year?  cause if so... you have 2 years on parts, and 10 years on the motor(which is a likely cause of a high whistle)



Period of Coverage
Labor : 1 Year
Parts : 2 Years
Extended : 5 Years on Control Board and Rack parts and the Stainless Steel Tub or Liner, and 10 Years on DirectDrive™ Motor

#301182 Frigidaire Professional Dishwasher Model #FPHD2491KF0

Posted by BrntToast on 17 August 2014 - 09:48 AM

it appears the heater thermostat is in series with the neutral line,  check for a open heater circuit,  rinse cycles dont heat water,all other cycles do, so this may be a cause for only rinse running the wash motor

#296820 Random Sparking when Burners are off (Kenmore Gas Range Model# 79078511401)

Posted by BrntToast on 21 June 2014 - 09:45 AM

you say you renovated,any chance the wiring to the range could have been damaged during reno ?


try running an extension cord from a different outlet to the range for a day or so and see if the sparking continues


i'm with the samurai, random sparking can be bad/reversed supply voltage

#296171 Help with diag on Frigidaire side by side phs68ejsbo

Posted by BrntToast on 11 June 2014 - 05:57 PM

Frigidaire 2004 SxS Refrigerator with Genesis Controls 


this manual is for both mechanical controls and the lovely genesis controls you have


you say the freezer is cold and you can feel a fan blowing into the FF compartment?

cause really,you should have cooling in the FF section then. unless.... something is blocking the return air vent behind the bottom crisper,remove that crisper and make sure nothing has fallen down there blocking the return vent(the fan will "blow" with the doors open, but soon as the doors are closed,the fan will not be able to circulate air between the 2 compartments


after that i'd be looking for proper damper operation


that manual page is open for public viewing and contains most older friggy manuals if you ever need one again

#295124 frigidaire front load won't spin

Posted by BrntToast on 01 June 2014 - 11:38 AM

i didn't know friggy had an out of balance signal

first thing you can do is remove the lid and back panel, there will be a tech sheet either on the top of the dispensor,or taped to the inside of the cabinet

try to run the diagnostics

carefull around the opening of the back panel, its very sharp

also.... while behind the machine with back panel off, grasp tub and rock it towards the white motor board, watch to see if the tub can come into contact with any of the wining harness,inspect that harness very closely looking for broken or crushed wires(the fine wires can get crushed,the wire breaks inside the insulation)

#295004 Electrolux Stacked washer FTF530FS1

Posted by BrntToast on 30 May 2014 - 05:20 PM

step one, place machine in the spin cycle,wait 2 minutes(wether it spins or not)

now unplug the washer and try to open the door

if the door opens instantly, you need a door lock

#294914 washer is going crazy Kenmore 417.40412700

Posted by BrntToast on 29 May 2014 - 10:23 PM

kenmore model 417.....  made by frigidaire

you say you caught the machine filling and draining endlessly?


known frigidaire problem

you need a speed board, also called the motor control unit


and yup a bad speed board can do all sorts of flakey stuff

another symptom ....  timer knob gets stuck at around the 5 o'clock position


another common problem i saw with these machines.... the tub can go out of balance bad enough to smash into the bottom of the timer.

Remove washer lid, closely examine the bottom of the timer and where that molex plug connects there, look to see if it looks squashed or out of place


but filling and running the drain pump forever is the speed board for sure

frigidaire blamed this on electrical interferance comming from other outside sources, they say they modified later boards to prevent this

this was like 10 years ago or so

#294776 Rattle in Whirlpool duet washer wfw8640bw

Posted by BrntToast on 28 May 2014 - 05:17 PM

you cant really see between the spin basket/front drum very well

removing the bellows from the tubs gives a lil more room


last time i had the problem you describe, it was a dice, had been left in a pocket,made it in there,but not past the lip of the spin basket

#294774 Vintage 60's GE P7 Electric Range with Double Oven

Posted by BrntToast on 28 May 2014 - 05:06 PM

check the fuses, they are under the top cover or the trim where the utility plug is

the oven ones are 30amp(green)

you cant tell by looking at a fuse,need a meter,or a new fuse to test them


after fuses you will pull the unit out and remove the back panels looking for burnt wires in the control panel
