#327903 Whirlpool front load washer WFW9470WW01 does not spin on high speed

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on Yesterday, 07:44 AM

Any unusual noises during spin? Growling, rumbling or other low-pitched noises that get louder as the RPMs increase? Check for this while running the spin cycle in test mode. 




#327839 Samsung Frontload Washer No Drain M# WF203ANS/XAC

Good point, Willie! Looking at the schematic on the Fast Track, the door lock, drain pump, and water inlet valves all have standing Line and Neutral is gated by the board. 

 

A good test would be to run a jumper from the neutral side of the drain pump to Neutral, completing the circuit. Same drill for the door lock. If both those loads work, then you've proven they're good and the problem is on the main board.

#327754 GE monogram 48" built in not cooling

In my opinion, if the thermistor is out of spec the thermistor should come up as failed but I am no engineer.

 

This would be great but there would be no way for the board to tell if the thermistor is out of spec. It would have to compare the thermistor voltage drop to the actual compartment temperature. It has no other way to know compartment temperature than the thermistor. So it's circular. That's why a human technician needs to come in a make an independent temperature measurement then compare with thermistor voltage drop or resistance.

#327632 Bottom-mount fridge GBSC0HBXCC Thermistor confusion

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 27 August 2015 - 04:00 PM

Tyler, this is a misprint in the tech sheet. I've seen this type of problem cause problems with even experienced techs. In my opinion, it is completely reasonable for rookie techs to be confused by this. You expect the tech sheet to be vetted and giving proper an accurate information and, in this case, it is not. I can completely understand your confusion in this case. Don't feel bad. in fact, I would say that you are to be commended for recognizing something that doesn't make sense and seeking help and guidance in this forum. Completely appropriate question for you to ask here.

Yes, 500 mb is too big. But why are you trying to POST the Fast Track? We already have that in the Downloads section. Applianceman was asking if you had the Fast Track for YOUR reference, not ours. 

 

If you have the Fast Track, use that to troubleshoot. What's the first thing we do when troubleshooting an appliance with a computer control board? 




#327538 Whirlpool WFW72HEDW0 start/pause light blinking at end of cycle

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 26 August 2015 - 07:46 AM

Does it start blinking during the cycle or only when the cycle is complete?

 

If you open the door and close it again, does the start/pause light stop blinking?

#327412 GE Profile PCF25PGSB BB freezer & fresh food section too warm

#327411 GE refrigerator PSI23NGMABB - frozen auger motor

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 August 2015 - 08:18 AM

Dave, the only bulletin I found on this was for a replacement feeler arm. Nothing on the augur motor freezing. 

 

Two common sources of this problem:

 

- water leaking from icemaker (or some other source) - indicated by clear ice on the motor

- air leak - indicated by rime ice (frost) on the motor




#327361 Water dispenser won't shut off.

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 23 August 2015 - 08:37 AM

The more common problem that I found with the water not shutting off isn't the microswitch, it's the plastic lever getting stuck.

 

Great tip, Scottie! Evernoting this one!
