In Topic: Maytag centenial DDrive - model MVWC300VW0 stops mid cycle

Burnt contact inside the molex connector. Thanks guys. I cleaned the contact and retightened the connector. Secured the molex plug. Then ran a test with the machine casing off and jiggled the connector to see if I would get the same problem. It never came back. On my first visit I was operating underneath the empty machine and just noticed a loose connector so I just reset it without taking off the connector (rookie mistake). I've heard from other techs that having a burnt contactor is something that happens to these direct drive units but honestly after having worked in the business for 7 years and thousands of appliances this is the first direct drive unit I've experienced this with. I'm suprised I've never run into it before with these washers. I've seen this issue of burned contactors inside of timers, switches, and plugs on many other appliances just not the direct drive. I guess there is a first time for everything. On the recall visit it was full of water because the customer wasnt able to drain it so I took the casing off and then could clearly see what the problem was. Lesson learned. Thanks, Guys!

In Topic: Electrolux Duel Fuel Range - EW30GF65GSB - F10 error

21 December 2013 - 11:46 PM

Okay so the verdict is that all that upon entering the service menu it was obvious that the error was coming from the mini electric oven at the bottom and not the main gas oven compartment. The issue is steming from the fact that Electrolux used crappy molex plugs so at the bottom of the oven where the power cord is wired through the fram of the oven chassis sits also the temp probe for the lower oven. This area is very tight and apparently the resistence readings for the probe are off if there is not a good connection at the molex plug. The power cord was scrunchted up against the temp probe causing an error. The techline at frigidaire said that all the molex connectors for the temp probe should be converted to hardwired connectors with ceramic nuts. I did this and there was no recall within the last 24 hrs. Before this fix she recalled within 2 hrs because the error came back quickly. I checked the fan for proper operation and it does spin when 120v is present. Although its does spin very quietly and doesn't seem to displace very much air but who knows. Maybe if I get called for the f30 error I'll know what to do.






In Topic: bosch wfl2060uc washer leaking from soap dispenser

18 December 2013 - 11:14 PM

I don't know why I didn't think about this but the floor is old an is slightly slanted forward. Its not really noticeable to the naked eye but upon raising the two front feet the soap dispenser stopped leaking. Duh. Moment. It seems that the things that are most mind boggling have the most simple solutions. Oh well.

KFC on that inverter. And no communication on the line going back to the board. Compressor turned out just fine. Swapped out the inverter and the unit temp drew down very quickly. Thanks guys.

I advised the customer that is was probably due to inappropriate soap usage and or overspray from mildew/mineral buildup in the fill ports in the soap dispenser housing. Customer will check with tenant and get back with me if there are still any problems. So far so good. I also check with bosch's regional trainer and he said the same thing.
