#309777 LG Washer stops mid-cycle WM2031HR

Posted by LI-NY Tech on 18 December 2014 - 09:57 PM

Placing this machine into test mode will allow you to run a diagnostic test which will test all of the components.  This should tell you if the machine is hanging up because of a faulty component.  If it makes it through the diagnostic test ok it's likely that the control is to blame.

#309775 Whirlpool Duet GHW9300PW1 - Flaky Push to Start button

Posted by LI-NY Tech on 18 December 2014 - 08:47 PM

If the start button itself isn't actually broken then this seems like a problem with the user interface.  It's not uncommon for the plastic tab the start button depresses on the UI to crack.

#309774 KitchenAid D/W 2-Drawer KUDD01DPPA-1 won't drain, won't test either

Posted by LI-NY Tech on 18 December 2014 - 08:44 PM

This is a Fisher & Paykel machine.  There really isn't all that much to it.  The hall sensor monitors motor speed, I've never had to replace one.  The only parts I've ever had to replace on these machines is inlet valve (once), control board (once) and rotor and stator (many times).  The rotor/stator does both wash and drain, there isn't a separate drain pump.  If the motor starts up at first but fails to re-start after the initial drain-pause sequence I'd be looking towards the control as the problem.  This makes even more sense since you can't get it into service mode.  If you can get the lower drawer into service mode to at least verify that it's being entered correctly then I think I'd probably go with a bad control.


If you can get into service mode run the hardware output test and then you can get a better idea of what's happening with the drain situation.  You can also check the resistance of the stator itself if you suspect it, looking for 7.5 - 8.5 ohms on all 3 windings.  That's the only test they show for the motor, nothing on the hall sensor, but since the motor seems to be operating initially I think we can probably rule out the hall sensor, and the motor itself for that matter.

#309671 LG Gas Dryer no heat Kenmore elite model 79691473210

Posted by LI-NY Tech on 16 December 2014 - 08:59 PM

The coils themselves should have 1.5k-2.5k ohms.

The switch is shown with the motor NOT running, and so, open (if the switch was shown with the motor running it would be shown closed).  The arrow indicates that the switch will close when the motor is running.


It looks like L1 runs through the timer, temp switch, cycling thermostat and high limit. The schematic seems to show L1 and L2 coming together, which of course can't be right.  I had to refer to the wiring diagram in the service manual, what am I missing on the schematic?

The easiest way to check the timer is to test continuity of the heater wire terminals on the timer.  Electric dryer timers in general will have two heavy gauge wires, this is heater circuit through the timer.  There should be continuity across those two terminals when the timer is set to a heat cycle.  If there is not the timer is faulty.  


Posted by LI-NY Tech on 13 December 2014 - 07:52 AM

Since we know the heating section components work it's pretty likely a bad timer.  Test for continuity in the timer across the heater output terminals, usually the two thickest wires on the timer for electric dryers, and compare the results between auto dry and timed dry.

#308920 Whirlpool dryer WED9400VE0 - flashing display

Posted by LI-NY Tech on 05 December 2014 - 05:43 PM

So, went back on this yesterday.  Didn't see the problem occur as the customer stated it's been working ok since she gave it a "love tap".  So, I inspected and re-seated the UI connectors.  We'll see what happens.

Dryers should be disassembled and cleaned of lint annually, as should the vent.

#308172 New Whirlpool WRX735SDBM Fridge runs constantly

Posted by LI-NY Tech on 24 November 2014 - 11:04 AM

The unit needs about 24 hours to reach normal operating temperatures. It will run a lot until then. It will run a lot after that also. If you are sitting and listening and waiting for it to cut out it will seem to you that it never does. If it's cooling properly I wouldn't worry about it.

You want about 0*F in the freezer and 37*F in the freshfood section. If you have those temperatures it's okay.

Update: The blower motor with hall sensor solved the problem. The main control was not receiving a signal from the blower (sometimes),
