In Topic: Door latch assembly 'how to' link? kenmore 417.44092500

21 June 2013 - 03:00 AM

can i reply to my own topic?

at the bottom of the gasket, there is a flap with a spring.

that spring connects the two parts of the wire together that holds the door gasket in place.

unhook the wire, remove gasket, remove door latch.

if your spring is like mine, rusted, it might break, be aware of that...

all good....?

arigato.


In Topic: kenmore 417.44092500, new main control board won't go into diagnostic mode

02 June 2013 - 12:26 PM

SUCCESS!... problem solved...

my 11 year sons hands were a big help, he was able to unsnap the top of the control unit and reattach the wiring harness easily with his small hands.

don't know if i could have done it with my paws without detaching unit...

 

all good, machine is fine now.  put old main control board back in, she's working fine, will send back the part that did not solve the problem.

 

thanks again for everyone's help.

thank you thank you thank you....

 

referring to the picture attached in the above reply, you are talking about the detached harness attaching somewhere above the ground wires sort of underneath that flap which will unsnap and hinge up? correct?

 

and, does the motor control need to be removed to accomplish this task or can i unsnap/unhinge the top as it is?

 

will give you update later today when i get home and administer treatment to the machine.

thank you again.

got to the MCU, the lead with the blue and black wire with the green cap i disconnected and reconnected. seems solid fit

also disconnected reconnected the harness to the motor itself. (the black cap with several wires attached, solid fit, seemed fine....)

 

i did find this 5 wire lead attached to nothing (pictured).

 

unscrewed and moved the MCU about but could not see anywhere on the MCU to attach harness to. not exactly easy viewing the entire MCU due to placement in the machine....

is the harness pictured supposed to be attached to something? if so, what and where?

 

if not and the harness is irrelavant, what's my next move, no change in machine status, will not go into diagnostic, etc....

thank you once again oh guru of washing machine madness....

 

one other point, master said left hand side when looking from back of machine, what i was looking at was on the right hand side of machine. two green ground wires coming off, one set of wires to the motor, one set of wires to heading back to the main control board (i am guessing).... and what i thought was the MCU did not exactly look like http://www.repaircli...4743500/1191307, but again, hard to tell due to location in the machine etc...

thanks....
