#287077 Roper rax7245aw0, acting funny, water won't stop, finish cycle

Posted by fairbank56 on 07 March 2014 - 08:20 AM

The most disturbing thing is the fact that when the button is pushed in, it doesn't kill power to the system.  It's still reacting and running.


  Unplug timer connector. Does that kill the power? If so, timer is bad. No "ground" can cause this problem. Visually inspect timer connector and wiring harness leading from it. Probably nothing out of the ordinary. Replace timer. I have the wiring diagram if anybody wants it but it's just a standard Whirlpool no frills two speed system.



#287050 Kenmore 110.96272100

Posted by fairbank56 on 06 March 2014 - 10:29 PM

  Check the voltage dropping resistor. Funny looking plastic device next to timer. Should read about 4000 to 5000 ohms. If bad, replace with resistor kit.

#286709 Whirlpool WTW5830SW0 Spin Cycle Keeps failing

Posted by fairbank56 on 03 March 2014 - 05:23 PM

  You mean brake cam driver? Your saying that these two clips were missing? The one on the brake shoe pivot point and the one that holds the brake cam driver on? If that is the case, let's see a close up side view photo of the T bearing with clip and brake cam driver removed. It may be that the T bearing is worn down to the point that the clip won't stay on.





#286545 Amana ned7200tw thermal fuse

Posted by fairbank56 on 02 March 2014 - 01:18 PM

  Any time either the thermal cutoff or hi limit goes bad, you should replace them both. That's why, in many cases, they come in a kit. But that still doesn't address the problem. The hi limit should not be cycling either. I don't know what to tell you. I guess you could replace the control board and send it back if it doesn't fix the problem.



#286451 Dryer - how freely should rollers roll, and does it matter?

Posted by fairbank56 on 01 March 2014 - 04:50 PM

  I have same model dryer, going 27 years with never a problem, even still on original belt.



#286405 Amana ned7200tw thermal fuse

Posted by fairbank56 on 01 March 2014 - 09:31 AM

Eric, it has a thermal fuse, this is the part on Part Select-

Thermal Fuse with bracket

Part Number: PS2038484


  That's just ParstSelect getting it wrong as many parts sites do. It's a thermal cutoff, not that it really matters but the thermal fuse on an electric dryer is on the blower housing and is in the motor circuit, not the heat circuit, however, on this dryer, that protective device in the motor circuit is also a thermal cutoff. Here's part of the tech sheet for your dryer. They get the wire colors wrong in the text as it says red and black on the thermal cutoff but on the wiring diagram, it shows black and blue. Don't have the answer to your problem though, maybe these thermal cutoffs are junk.





#286331 Frigidaire FL W FTF530FS1 tumbles, but no (high speed) spin

Posted by fairbank56 on 28 February 2014 - 09:58 AM

  You say, no high speed spin, is it spinning on other speeds? If so, then doesn't make sense that you are not getting power to the motor control board. Wax motor can be operating normally yet door switch auxiliary contacts that are operated by wax motor could still be faulty. Not all models use these auxiliary contacts, don't know about this model, you would have to check wiring. Wiring diagram shows it as an option.

#286077 How do I hook up a test cord to this Frigidaire washer motor?

Posted by fairbank56 on 25 February 2014 - 09:41 PM

  Neutral to white wire, jumper between yellow and black wire, Hot to blue and hot through 189-210mfd capacitor to terminal at far left (opposite end of red wire). They are all different, you will have to learn how to read the wiring diagrams to figure them out.



#285735 Kenmore dryer....ok to bypass thermal fuse until I get a new one?

Posted by fairbank56 on 23 February 2014 - 12:44 PM

  Yes, it would.

#285580 Maytag Top Loader Thrust Bearing Install

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 February 2014 - 10:39 AM

  Use a small screwdriver to get into the groove and pry down on shaft while inserting clip. If necessary, you can also file an angle on the tips of one side of the clip so it's easier to get started. Check alignment marks after installing to determine if correct washer is installed.



#285570 Agitating agitator problems

Posted by fairbank56 on 22 February 2014 - 08:52 AM

  Audio and videos are working for me. It's quite obvious to me that the problem is that the agitate gear is not fully engaged with the agitator shaft when the rack is moving it in one direction. That's the only way the agitator shaft can be going in one direction only. The agitate gear cannot go round and round within the confines of the rack so it is being moved back and forth normally, it's just not engaging the shaft in both directions. A problem I've seen several times is when the ramps in the cam parts wear causing the agitate gear to not fully disengage but causes the same type of noise when in spin mode because the splines inside the gear are hitting the splines on the agitator shaft. Iv'e never seen or heard of the issue you are having but your gearcase is very old (30 years) and has a different style agitator shaft and gear.



#285504 Roper washer RTW43405SQ0

Posted by fairbank56 on 21 February 2014 - 08:40 PM

  FYI, whenever you replace a direct drive single speed motor with a two speed motor, your supposed to install a different tub counterbalance spring as the new motor is heavier.
