Concur.  Most likely the white wire at the TCO connector is damaged and may result in having to replace the motor.  Unit is still worth the repair.

Could be a stuck rotor.  Watch for slight rotor movement when the motor is energized.  I've been able to manually free them using a screwdriver (carefully).

Check valve flapper still in place where the drain hose attaches to the pump?  Concur with J5 about a possible kink in the drain hose.  Heater check ok?  Are both drawers being used when this occurs?

What's the voltage reading at the electrical outlet?  Any other symptoms prior to this failure?

#303427 Kenmore Refrigerator 106.58512800 drain pan replacement

Posted by PDuff on 16 September 2014 - 11:20 AM

Fairly easy.  The existing pan is taped in place, but you can access from the front.  After removing the grill, remove the small bar from the front.  May have to loosen the water filter housing to give yerself enough room.

#303349 Whirlpool Duet Washer WFW9250WW00 F5E6 error

Posted by PDuff on 15 September 2014 - 02:22 PM

All of the F5 fault codes for your dryer point to an issue with the door lock.  Retrieve the tech sheet and perform the component test in the diagnostic cycle.  Also check the wire connectors as well as continuity of the door switch at the CCU.  If the door lock checks good, the CCU may have sustained damage from the flood.

If correct voltage is present and all the usual stuff checks good (element, thermostats, etc), you can check the thermistor for 10k ohms at room temperature.  The absence of any error codes might point to a stuck heater relay or other issue with the Main PCB.

It's gotta be either the MCU or motor.  4-6 ohms should be ok when testing the motor windings.  Could disconnect the plug at the motor and test pins 4 and 5.  Should read 105 to 130 ohms.


Is it draining ok?

PTC and Overload Assembly P/N Part number: WR07x10097

Part number: WR07x10097


Capacitor should be ok but can be tested with an ohmmeter.  Should show a momentary deflection in both directions.

#303341 Samsung DMR57LFS E9 error won't go away

Posted by PDuff on 15 September 2014 - 12:45 PM

Problem may lie between the inlet valve and Main PCB, but I suspect the valve.  On the Samsung even with what appears to be a correct fill, a faulty valve will continue to produce the error code.

#303339 Intermittent Inglis (Sharp) Model MR67130 Microwave

Posted by PDuff on 15 September 2014 - 12:28 PM

With the rear and side screws removed, you should be able to remove the cabinet by pulling it to the rear.  But it sounds like you have a faulty control, which may no longer be available.  Provided the line fuse isn't being tripped, I doubt the interlock switches are the culprit.

#303337 Whirlpool DU1345XTVBO making a constant water running sound.

Posted by PDuff on 15 September 2014 - 12:20 PM

Could be backflow through the drain hose when the sink is used.  Check for a proper "gooseneck" in the drain hose where it connects to the sink drain or disposer.  This will prevent backflow or siphoning when the dishwasher is used.


May want to double check for any leaks from the water supply line where it connects to the inlet valve.

#303184 GE Side by side fridge Model: GSL25FXB LB - Freezer cold, fridge warm

Posted by PDuff on 12 September 2014 - 02:36 PM

Definitely check the evaporator fan operation as Brother BEdwards advised.  If it's running slow or not at all, you may need to replace the fan motor as well as the motherboard.  Any other symptoms, icemaker or dispenser?

#303179 Maytag dishwasher mdb7760aws1 door won't close after power event

Posted by PDuff on 12 September 2014 - 02:25 PM

Good fix, Guy, and thanks for the update.  Maytag dishwasher latches have a tendency to fail, even without a power surge.  Most replacements will come with the latch and handle.  Tripping the latch spring can restore function in most cases, but if the problem reoccurs, might be a good idea to go ahead and replace the latch assembly.



#303161 Whirlpool All-Refrig Mod# EL7ATRRKS01 - looking for defrost timer specs

Posted by PDuff on 12 September 2014 - 09:54 AM

There's been an issue with the 3-81329 for both all refrigerators and all freezers (Both use the same timer).  No Service Pointer but there was an engineering dispatch that advised to replace these timers with the same P/N and return the old timer to engineering for research.  No info provided as to the cause or the cure of the problem.


Just had two Sidekicks, refrigerator and freezer with frost issues, still under first year warranty.  Used the same Frigidaire timer you intend to use while ordering the correct replacement timer, and it held up just fine.
