Some tips on diagnosing the door latch assembly on a Frigidaire Gallery frontload washer that won't do high speed spin

How to diagnose and replace a defective door latch in a Frigidaire / Kenmore front loading washer

#227481 Kenmore Elite model 110.22052100, washer wont spin with heavy loads

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 19 March 2012 - 11:23 PM

I've seen this before. F6 is definitely the control-- you either have a power quality issue that keeps taking the control out or it was just a flukey premature board failure. You should be able to get a replacement board at no charge under warranty.

Is this washer plugged into a surge suppressor?

I'd be looking at two things:

- what kind of ground he has in the house. You may find a ground strap connected to a copper pipe but if you follow the pipe, it hits a PVC section and there goes your ground.

- Power quality. Harmonics on the line from fluorescent lights, computers, commercial facilities nearby, etc. This is becoming an increasingly big issue. Read more ==> http://www.copper.or.../pq/primer.html

You'll need a special power quality meter to see the harmonic composition on the supply. Some manufacturers are even adding noise filters (i.e., harmonic filters) to their appliances in anticipation of the control boards being exposed to this stuff in the field.

Also, plain ol' voltage sags and swells can wreak havoc on the control board rectifiers and regulators.

Ummm, It said Canada when the original post was made????


Willie is correct!

So, Brooke, which is it? I know from chat last night that you're a native Calagarian like our dear Grand Master kdog but are you currently living in Canada or the US? And why the change in location info from your initial post to the present one?

#227371 Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model #KUDT035TSS3 Clean Light Blinking

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 18 March 2012 - 09:52 PM

Sublime Master Chat set you straight. Check the thermal fuse continuity. If bad, install the linked kit following the instructions to the letter and using ALL the components in the kit.


#227363 Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model #KUDT035TSS3 Clean Light Blinking

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 18 March 2012 - 09:20 PM

If the clean light is blinking, then the thermal fuse is good.

The board is looking for a temperature rise in the water and ain't seeing it. Possible reasons:

1. the heating circuit is bad

2. no water in the basin

3. the most common cause-- no water circulation because the wash motor is shot == new motor-pump assembly

And check your power cord wiring against this, from the oracle himself:

#227342 Desperately Seeking Help for Kenmore 11015942401 no water

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 18 March 2012 - 07:04 PM

Aha! This water inlet valve has a thermistor built into it. Just like on the Maytag washers, if the thermistor goes bad, it will kill voltage to the valve. I'll bet you my favorite third nut that the thermistor is bad. Replace the water inlet valve ==> http://www.repaircli...er=110.15942401
