#295822 Whirlpool Duet Washer - WFW9400VE01

Posted by Raynormensk on 07 June 2014 - 03:05 PM

If the front or back panels are off the machine, it will trip the gfci when you try to run the machine, there are switches under those panels that change the ground circuit, so for testing you will have to tape those switches closed.

There is a tab to the left that you press down on while pulling out the dispenser. You can see it at the top left in the picture.00995100.jpg

No, motor sounds normal, it acts like it's just way to sensitive to any imbalance in a full load so it keeps tumbling trying to find that perfect balance, but never does, if the motor is weak the motor controller could be seeing that as to much imbalance but I can't just have my office order the motor unless I know for sure that is it, cause our parts suppler won't take back opened electronic parts and motors, been burned too many times on that one, wish they would just order that stuff from Repair Clinic but nooo! 


Yeah diagnostics come up fine.




#251456 NOT SO CRAZY CUSTOMER

Posted by Raynormensk on 02 April 2013 - 10:09 PM

I would print off a large parts diagram of the area she says had a latch and let her try and find it or let her try and order one from someplace and offer to reimburse and install it once she finds one. The sad thing is, this is not an isolated case. I am seeing these kinds of false memories popping up all the time, I never would have thought appliance repair would involve Psychotherapy, but it seems to more and more.

That is the compressor overload clicking so no, the compressor is not running, it is stalling, may not be getting full voltage, may be bad relay on compressor, or a bad compressor. Unplug fridge and let comp cool down then remove relay and overload from comp. and shake it, if you can hear it rattle you have a bad relay.


#230893 Kenmore Elite HE5T Washer model 110.47086600 clothes sopping wet

Posted by Raynormensk on 24 April 2012 - 06:32 PM

Remove all clothes, run spin and drain, remove 3 or 4 t20 torx screws holding on the lower front panel, they are at the very bottom. Now you can get to the coin trap it is mounted to the base with a t20 torx screw or a rubber tab at the front, free the front then you can pull it loose from its rear base mounts and pull it far enough forward to catch some water in a brownie pan. slowly unscrew the coin trap till it drains out, then pull it the rest of the way out and clean it out good in the sink. Put it all back together and see how it does. Screws may be 1/4 inch hex head.


#230814 Spin only engages on FAST setting

Posted by Raynormensk on 23 April 2012 - 10:40 PM

I would replace the timer and not worry about the transmission and you should be back to spinning at high speed. http://www.repaircli...--00837361.jpg]

#230704 Spin only engages on FAST setting

Posted by Raynormensk on 22 April 2012 - 04:38 PM

This washer has what is called a neutral drain transmission, so after washing the motor reverses from agitate to drain while the transmission is in neutral, then after draining the motor will stop, shifting the transmission into spin, then the motor starts back up again turning in the same direction draining AND spinning. It sounds like that is what yours is doing so i am not sure if anything is really wrong.
