Front and rear spacer part number Part number: 8201790

Part number: 8201790

.  Might as well restring the grid while you're at it.  Cutter wire part number 4387020.  You can type these part numbers into the Appliantology Parts Finder field below to check price and availability.




#320508 MVWC200XW0 F8-E3 code, interm. op

Posted by PDuff on 21 May 2015 - 01:07 PM

I know the units that have the pressure transducer built into the control have been a little flaky.  The most recent symptoms involved stalling in the Sensing cycle and constantly energizing the drain pump.  After checking the pressure hose and drain pump operation, replacing the control cured the problem.

 

Your model has a basic pressure switch, so as long as the diaphragm isn't sticking, I expect it's good.  If the pressure hose checks good, it could be a communication problem in the control.

 

Have you tried recalibration?




#320505 Whirlpool direct drive, won't agitate, but spins

Posted by PDuff on 21 May 2015 - 12:50 PM

Probably wouldn't hurt to at least do a visual inspection of the motor itself, particularly the wiring to the limit switch.  Check for signs of damage or arcing.




#320422 lG FRIDGE LFX31945ST/01 AUGER MOTOR WILL NOT TURN AFTER NEW BOARD

Posted by PDuff on 20 May 2015 - 12:06 PM

I'd like to know how this turns out as well, bimbobbway.

 

And after you complete the repair, please advise the customer to thank Mr. Ass for his input, and that he has attracted our attention.......which is a great and terrible thing.




#320305 Whirlpool direct drive, won't agitate, but spins

Posted by PDuff on 19 May 2015 - 11:41 AM

Top of the line model for Whirlpool at the time.  Definitely worth the cost of a new timer.




#320299 Maytag Bravos MVWB300WQ2

Sounds like a restriction at the drain pump.  Remove the drain pump and tub to pump hose from the bottom of the tub and check for any foreign objects.

 

If nothing is found at the pump, lift the cabinet top and remove the upper tub cover.  You should be able to look between and inner basket outer tub (rear/right corner) for any foreign object that may have been thrown over the lip of the inner basket during spin.  May be able to remove the restriction without having to remove the inner basket by using a straightened wire clothes hanger or something similar.




#320295 lG FRIDGE LFX31945ST/01 AUGER MOTOR WILL NOT TURN AFTER NEW BOARD

Posted by PDuff on 19 May 2015 - 10:31 AM

Concur.  No bulletins, and no reasons given for the revision of the Main PCB.  Many LG boards are revised simply to improve efficiency.

 

I do see a capacitor on the Dispenser PCB that may affect auger motor operation.




#320226 Upper fridge is not cooling - Kitchenaid KFIS29PBMS00

Posted by PDuff on 18 May 2015 - 12:41 PM

The tech sheets' pretty self explanatory and will walk you through each step.  The evaporator fan motor is located behind the evaporator cover, but I believe you've already replaced it according to your original post.

 

The evaporator frost pattern may reveal if you have a sealed system problem or a possible thermistor or air flow issue.

 

You can search for more info within this forum by typing your model number in the search field above.  More information may be available in the Download Section but you'll have to upgrade your membership to access it.




#320224 lG FRIDGE LFX31945ST/01 AUGER MOTOR WILL NOT TURN AFTER NEW BOARD

Posted by PDuff on 18 May 2015 - 12:17 PM

I have had to replace the Dispenser PCB along with a failed/shorted Main PCB for other symptoms.  Is there a drop in voltage when the auger motor is energized?




#320219 Upper fridge is not cooling - Kitchenaid KFIS29PBMS00

Posted by PDuff on 18 May 2015 - 11:30 AM

Multiple issues concerning these dual evaporator units.  You may have to retrieve the technical sheet from the upper/right door hinge cover and perform the service diagnostic routine.  Check component operation (evaporator fan motor, damper, 3 way valve, etc) and thermistor conditions.

 

Also note the frost pattern of the iced up evaporator.  Is it iced completely across the coil?




#319875 Magic Chef Model #MCBR170B

Posted by PDuff on 13 May 2015 - 03:40 PM

Fairly high failure rate on those MC thermostats, even during first year warranty.

 

I'll use the "whacking" method, usually on the Whirlpool made side by side, but only after saying something theatrical like, "I command you to heal!" or "This is a highly technical diagnostic procedure.....Observe."




#319870 Thermador PGR486GDLP

Posted by PDuff on 13 May 2015 - 03:03 PM

Also check the broiler burner for any gookus that might interfere with the gas flow, particularly in the ports nearest to the ignitor.




#319867 Whirlpool washer (TAWS800JQ1) has water underneath it.

Posted by PDuff on 13 May 2015 - 02:44 PM

In the beginning, a leaking tub seal will be more evident when using a larger setting.  Eventually, it will leak or flood regardless of load size.

 

A quick inspection of the metal motor shield may show traces of water or detergent that may be trickling down from the tub seal.




#318991 maytag diswasher MDB7749SBW1 intermit leak from door

Posted by PDuff on 01 May 2015 - 09:44 AM

Also, when you notice the leak, feel inside the bottom lip of the outer door panel, particularly on the left side. 

 

If you feel moisture, remove the outer panel and check the detergent dispenser and vent assembly for leaks.




#318748 Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator LGHB2869LF3 Ice Maker - Needs replacing

Posted by PDuff on 28 April 2015 - 02:38 PM

I'm afraid you're stuck with the bullet style icemaker.  In March 2011 Electrolux eliminated this icemaker in production and replaced it with a "plug and play" flex tray style.

 

There are update kits, specific to your serial number, consisting of several parts that should get the icemaker working.  Warm air intrusion was the biggest issue with this icemaker, so be sure to install some 1/4" weatherstrip to the top lip of the ice room when complete.
