Power to the drain pump is supplied by triacs on the main board.  Triacs are current controlled devices which means the load needs to be connected for the triacs to open.

 

As a general rule, all voltage tests should be made with the load connected.   




#299561 ABB1921WEW1 (Jazz Board)

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 25 July 2014 - 07:04 PM

Put the control into Program Mode and check the existing program code that's stored there.  If it's not the same code as what's printed on the label, then that's a sure sign that the Jazz board is borked.  I see this problem with almost every Jazz board I've replaced for various symptoms.  Part number: AP5656409

#299532 Subzero refer Model BI-42S/0 Icemaker won't fill

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 25 July 2014 - 08:07 AM

The microprocessor board monitors flow volume thru flow meter and adjusts the fill time until approximately 3.5oz of water has been delivered to I/M.  If the control board executes self-test mode without error then that leaves the water inlet valve (and its built-in flowmeter) and the ice maker itself as suspects.  

 

Put the control into Fault Code Recall Mode and see if there are any fault codes stored.   




#299483 evaperator fan ques. for GE GSS201BTAWW side by side

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 July 2014 - 03:13 PM

Uusally, when they stick like this, the fan motor bearings are shot.  The fact that it takes off after you nudge it shows that the board is trying to run the fan but the fan can't take off from a dead stop ==> bad bearings ==> new fan motor Part number: WR60X10185

#299474 Bosch Dishwasher SHE43F15UC/64 trips main fuse

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 July 2014 - 01:46 PM

When you say "fuse" I'm assuming you mean circuit breaker? If so, then I would start by replacing the circuit breaker for the dishwasher circuit. It may also be original from the 70s. They do need to be replaced periodically. One sign is if they start failing under load, which sounds like it may be the case with yours.

If the drain pump runs when you hot wire it with your cheater cord and you've replaced the board with a new one then...

 

1.  Verify 120VAC pump power supply at the new board (board end of the pump wire harness). 

 

2.  If you have 120VAC at the board and the pump runs when you hot wire it, then the problem can only be a bad wire harness or bad connectors at the pump.  Bad wire harnesses can ohm good but then open when they fare moved or jiggled, as would see when the harness is connected and the machine running.  




#299447 Whirlpool washer WFW94HEXW2

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 24 July 2014 - 07:33 AM

The symptoms make me suspect a bad MCU and there's been a rash of these lately.  But verify they the MCU is getting both the 120VAC and 5VDC from the CCU.  This video explains that:

 

 

Another test to try is to disconnect the MCU from the CCU  and re-run diagnostics.  The drive motor won't run, obviously, but the dispenser should and it should do it reliably.  What we're checking on here is to see if the MCU is loading down the 5VDC system in the CCU.  

 

If the CCU functions normally in diagnostics (less the drive motor) and the MCU is getting both AC and DC supply from the CCU, then replace the MCU.  Part number: AP5176711

The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

 

 

For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel.

 

 

Why, no, whatever do you mean?
