#315659 W/P wtw4950 No Spin

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 17 March 2015 - 07:20 PM

Repair is complete.........It  took a new lid switch and the  actuator...........It appears the actuator was failing at higher R.P.M's.....the tech sheet test for the optical sensor sez:  step10. If 13 volts D.C. is present ( I had 12.5 V.D.C. ) go to  step 11...Voltage should toggle between 0 and +5V.D.C....( I got that ).......I replaced the parts and ran the Calibrate operation and the automatic test to verify............Okie Dokie, Artichokie........Every thing worked..........Epilogue:.... LID;   lid would lock but the controller would not see it as locked......................ACTUATOR;   While the test at low R.P.M. indicated O.K. voltage wise and the machine performed the high R.P.M. for the correct length of time , ( I based time on the Automatic Test time )    then failure, with the test stopping and the lid lock light flashing .......I kinda look at the capacitor failing with a load... BUT, I was going back with a cap AND  the actuator.................................Now for truck stock.. #1) a lid lock, as before..........  #2) an actuator..................... Now #3)  capacitors of both flavors, 45 and 50 MFD.S............................................................................................................................The capacitor failure I have seen  on this model machine,  the innards had oozed out and was a melted, now hard plastic.........Looked like a tumor.....




#314913 Whirlpool Duet GHW91509PW0 - MCU board repair

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 07 March 2015 - 12:27 AM

You could purchase a new M.C.U. , When you get the new M.C.U, you could identify the component, and order it....In the mean time you can have the new controller installed so the laundry pile stays at a manageable size... :whistling: Especially if there is a family involved.......You can  turn the underwear inside out only so many times.... :woot: ......




#314912 Kenmore Mod# 417.27182702

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 07 March 2015 - 12:17 AM

I think it was  Budget that told me this trick a few years back.... :thumbsup: ......I also think Friggy is on their fourth or fifth part number for this pump................Older part numbers ended something like ***1100 and ***1200............and the latest part numbers they made the mounting foot/pad smaller..........I just reused the old foot/pad........




#314736 Kenmore Mod# 417.27182702

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 04 March 2015 - 08:06 PM

If I remember correctly, there is a screw driver slot on the shaft of the timer ......................Accessible from the rear, I.E. remove the top and swing it to the side.... Give it a try and post back......................Most  of the time it is the speed control board that it  failing,...Speed control board advances the timer........... but a slow pump could be a problem also.......Check the bottom of the timer to see if it got banged-up in a 'Wild Spin' scenario....................




#314696 Kenmore FL washer 110.42926203

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 04 March 2015 - 01:09 PM

You probably have done the basics, checked the connections at the board.....This one one the boards that have those 'pinch' type connections..........There is a video of The Grand Master doing a repair on this type of connector,.......Do not recall what the repair was for but this  may be just what you need for a  insolent  connection......... I.E. starting and stopping randomly.........Keep us posted.




#314235 KUDK03CTWH2 dishwasher not draining

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 26 February 2015 - 11:52 PM

Access the the sump, area of the chopper blade.....When you remove the  cover, look for a small black strip..............It is a flapper type valve...........Grab it and lift it up and out....Now reassemble every thing .............Start a cycle, fill and then cancel...........Will it drain completely???.................Only thing inbetween the sump and the drain pump ( and the check valve in the new drain hose )......................

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 24 February 2015 - 01:11 PM

MAH 3000 ..............The machine that killed a company...........They should have replaced the machines instead of  sending three+ replacement kits....................Motor and speed control boards with main control board kit.................Front door kit...............Tub and  door boot kit......... Now days, you spend X amount of clam$ to get it to spin and then you get to heard the main bearing is failing........." But you still gotta pay for the repair".......

#313200 Whirlpool Duet Steam Waher #WFW95HEXL2 wont fill or run

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 12 February 2015 - 12:18 AM

The CCU is telling you that it is not "seeing" any motor action.......  "What we have here, is a failure to communicate"..........The CCU is reaching out with love and wanting love in return, but , Alas, the MCU is dead...The current is never to flow thru it's circutry ever more... :boohoo: ..

#311560 Jenn air S136 needs new downdraft switch

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 20 January 2015 - 11:14 AM

Just saw this post........Just took this unit out of a customers home , they were updating to sell........DSCN1400_zps278734f7.jpg..........But go figure, here is the switch....DSCN1396_zps919a627f.jpg................The switch lost the top part of the rocker, could possibly use your old one............This unit is in great shape.DSCN1404_zpsd8c05234.jpg....DSCN1402_zpsd001a781.jpg......DSCN1397_zpsda448c71.jpg.....I could pull it and check  if you are interested....Or you if you want more parts, it is going to be stripped of the O.C.U. and front console  and then the rest recycled.............




#311372 Better Hose Clamp Pliers?

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 17 January 2015 - 12:58 PM

Next time you see a Snap-On  or Mac tool truck, stop in and ask to see their hose clamp pliers.    Nice jaws, long cable, and a handle like regular pliers ......75 or so clam$.....have not seen them at a place like Harbour Freight........Snap=On P/N SHCP1A.




#311309 Maytag Epic Z MHWZ600PW02

Posted by certified tech group 51 on 16 January 2015 - 06:17 PM

Was the F -25 code the only code displayed and in storage???..........Have seen front load units with a slow drain, start to spin but was not balanced ...But balanced enough to bang around to pull wires loose or in the case of the older friggys', pull  the brown wire loose at the motor connector......So it is possible the slow drain is the culprit........After you reconnected the loose connection, you tested it and it worked fine, that's cuz it was already empty...... Fill and watch the water level drain during the drain cycle......................You may need to do some tap dancing to get some dough, kinda like its related but not really..... :bunny:  .
