Just my opinion... Parts are getting real expensive for these, some are no longer available. Do you really want to sink time and money into something that many professionals consider the worst washing machine ever built? 




#297510 The Revenge of the Maytag Washers

Posted by nickfixit on 29 June 2014 - 12:47 PM

One good thing about the old Whirlpool belt drive washers and the Whirlpool direct drive washers is that the gearcase remained stationary during the spin cycle and they didn't eat tub seals and tub bearings.

 I always thought the spinning transmission was strange. I never liked any of the Maytags, even the Dependable Care. I thought the old belt-drive Whirlpool was a better washer..




#297430 WF448AAP/XAC, drain error

Posted by nickfixit on 27 June 2014 - 08:08 PM

search long and hard for a coin caught in one of the drain hoses or connectors. Lot's of guys have ordered motors only to find it still doesn't drain. A coin gets hung up and acts like the choke on a carburetor, it can vary positions from open to closed and drive you nuts.




#297182 LG wm2077cw LE error

Posted by nickfixit on 25 June 2014 - 05:17 AM

Start with the harness and hall sensor, save yourself some grief.




#297162 LG wm2077cw LE error

Posted by nickfixit on 24 June 2014 - 08:19 PM

It's likely there is a problem with the harness segment that feeds the motor and hall sensor. Order this before you start with the real expensive stuff. If you plan on servicing these, you'll want that harness as truck stock.




#297161 WFW9250WW00 -- clothes not ready for dryer -- bear trap

Posted by nickfixit on 24 June 2014 - 08:11 PM

She can't do mixed loads like that. The machine will sense the out-of-balance condition and try to rebalance the load. When it fails to rebalance, it will finish without going into high speed spin. Mixed loads will also shorten the life of the basket bearings and tub support.




#296199 WTW5601XW3 F8E3 and F3E1 error codes. Won't start any cycle.

Posted by nickfixit on 12 June 2014 - 05:05 AM

It's easier to just pull the basket with a lager item. The constantly running pump is a dead giveaway something is blocking the pump.




#291807 Whirlpool Duet washer WFW9250WWD1

Posted by nickfixit on 25 April 2014 - 08:05 PM

I have found those color-catcher sheets wrapped around the heat element and slowing down the rate that water can exit the machine. You got something like that going on here, something inside is restricting water flow prior to it reaching the check/ball/hose assembly.




#291802 Samsung top load washer Md. WA5451anw/xaa 02

Posted by nickfixit on 25 April 2014 - 07:58 PM

I think with this machine with this error, a tech should just start by replacing the lower harness. It's like dealing with a LG with a LE error. The hardest part is Samsung's shitty part system.




#290837 Samsung top load washer Md. WA5451anw/xaa 02

Posted by nickfixit on 15 April 2014 - 05:20 AM

I've been down this road. If replacing the sensor doesn't correct the problem, you need to replace the lower harness assembly. You get that code if main control sees output too high, too low, or interrupted.




#290835 Whirlpool washer WTW4800XQ0

Posted by nickfixit on 15 April 2014 - 05:10 AM

You need to put it into diagnostics and see what codes are there. It's possible all it needs is run through a calibration cycle. Run the calibration cycle, then run the diagnostic cycle to see if you have normal function back. If not, get the codes and start checking. I have had a few bad water level switches on these.




#290834 LG Top Load model WT4801CW Lid Replacement

Posted by nickfixit on 15 April 2014 - 05:03 AM

I will add, pending model number info, that replacing the lid or top on one of theses machines is quite a difficult and time consuming job.




#290695 lg mod 796.29002000 top load squeaking

Posted by nickfixit on 12 April 2014 - 08:29 PM

I would try Mobile 1 synthetic grease




#289944 FAV6800AWW No Spin, Screeching

Posted by nickfixit on 04 April 2014 - 06:57 PM

Did the old clutch show any signs of rust? If so, your tub bearings and water seal are likely bad.




#288825 Samsung DV350AE/XAA - testing and replacement of moisture sensors

Posted by nickfixit on 23 March 2014 - 10:07 AM

Start by cleaning the surface of the two contact bars and check all harness connections. If the harness has a ground connection, clean the surface to bare metal and reconnect.
