#301360 WFW9200SQ01 Will not turn on; F21; Diagnostic Fails on C:07

Posted by PDuff on Yesterday, 12:48 PM

I believe we've seen quite a few unrelated fault codes produced by these Duet CCUs that can definitely have you chasing your tail.  You may have remedied the F28 fault by unplugging and plugging in the MI3 connector at the CCU, but double check the same connector at the MCU.

 

Ignoring the F02 fault code, it seems your latest symptoms could be door switch related.




#301358 Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB4315LFC3 Will Not Start

Posted by PDuff on Yesterday, 12:07 PM

Check for proper voltage and secure wire connections at the power box.  If there's a voltage drop occurring during startup, there may be a faulty neutral somewhere.




#301280 KFIS29BBMS02 Ice Build Up Right Inside The Freezer Door

Posted by PDuff on 18 August 2014 - 01:52 PM

Any signs of moisture or ice around the icemaker fascia?

 

Disregard previous statement, I just checked the model.  A lot of frost issues are due to the user, not closing the drawer from the center.  Since the drawer has been replaced and the problem continues, that eliminates any insulation void.  Bad spring catch on one of the rails could definitely cause frost like DA advises.

 

Aside from that, poor air flow or defrost issue?




#300518 Kenmore SxS 10656544400 Freezer cold, Ref side not cold

Posted by PDuff on 07 August 2014 - 03:09 PM

Definite air return restriction, but the rectangular air return just above the upper crisper.  Check for ice blockage and carefully clear.  Other symptoms may include excessive frosting in the freezer compartment.  If this is found, check the liner lip where it meets the front cabinet.  Even if there are no noticeable gaps, apply food grade silicone to the entire perimeter of the liner lip in both compartments.  Very common issue with the Whirlpool made SxS.




#300397 Bosch Dishwasher SHE4AP02UC/06

Posted by PDuff on 05 August 2014 - 03:37 PM

You mentioned the E:24 error code with the unit draining properly.  Here's a little sumpthin sumpthin from the manual:

 

If a dishwasher doesn't drain properly and/or show an E:24 error code, the problem usually is not with the control or the drain pump.  To solve the issue, (1) the control must be reset and (2) the obstruction generating the error code must be cleaned out.

 

To reset the control:

1.  With the door closed and the dishwasher turned on, press and hold the Start button for 5 seconds, the display should show "01" or "00" (digital display only).  Press the On/Off button (turning the dishwasher off) and the control should be reset.

2.  If step 1 didn't work, remove the toekick and disconnect the drain pump harness from the drain pump.  Make sure the connector isn't touching anything, tape it if necessary.  With the door closed, press the On/Off button to turn the dishwasher on.  You should hear the control turn on and the control relays click on and off.  Wait about 30 seconds with the power on, then press the On/Off button to turn the dishwasher off.  With the power off, reconnect the drain pump harness and reinstall the toekick.  With the door closed, press the On/Off button to turn the dishwasher on.  The control should reset.




#300378 ASKO D5233 dishwasher stops before end of cycle

Also perform a visual leak check of the circulating motor, diverter and heater located in the base of the unit.  Might help with your diagnosis.




#298903 Bosch dishwasher SHE3AR56UC/08. Upper wash arm not spinning or washing

Posted by PDuff on 17 July 2014 - 03:10 PM

One more thing to check.  Verify that there's a proper "gooseneck" where the drain hose connects to the sink or disposer.  The gooseneck helps to eliminate siphoning that may occur during wash.




#298896 Admiral HMG53168 very hot around gasket

Posted by PDuff on 17 July 2014 - 01:51 PM

I'm having trouble with that model number.  "Food in the fresh food bins freezing" might indicate temperature runaway caused by a faulty cold control or sensor, which would result in excessive compressor run time, making the yoder loop warmer than usual.




#298678 Bosch dishwasher SHE3AR56UC/08. Upper wash arm not spinning or washing

Posted by PDuff on 15 July 2014 - 12:12 PM

Possibly, and easy enough to check.  Place a small cup, open end up, on the upper rack and run a quick cycle with no detergent.  After the wash cycle has run for a couple of minutes, open the door quickly and check upper spray arm rotation, and see if water has accumulated in the cup.

 

On most dishwashers, the main detergent cup doesn't open until the very last wash cycle.  If oversudsing occurs, the unit may not be able to completely evacuate the sudsy water before rinsing, sometimes enough to affect washability.

Posted by PDuff on 15 July 2014 - 10:36 AM

Sounds like the control board has gone bye-bye.  I expect everything else should be ok.  I've been seeing a lot of control board damage due to power surges this summer.




#298670 Whirlpool GU2275XTVQ3 is dead

Posted by PDuff on 15 July 2014 - 10:30 AM

If you had continuity at the fuse in the control panel, then that fuse is good.  Check for voltage to the two wires going to the fuse.  If no voltage is present, remove the bottom access panel and inspect the main power cord connections located in the box on the right.




#298667 GE refrig TPS24BPCGBS leaking water in freezer section

Posted by PDuff on 15 July 2014 - 10:20 AM

If possible, check for any signs of warm air intrusion, ice door, door gasket, etc.  Be sure the freezer door is closing properly with the bottom closure lever and spring in place.




#298663 Bosch dishwasher SHE3AR56UC/08. Upper wash arm not spinning or washing

Posted by PDuff on 15 July 2014 - 10:04 AM

Double check the ports on the upper and lower spray arms for any clogging or foreign material that may affect water flow.  Also check for any oversudsing that may be caused by excessive detergent use.

 

Your model is more than happy to shut down and indicate a fault if the correct water fill level is not reached, but insufficient fill could still be an issue.  Check the water inlet valve and inlet assembly for debris.

#298435 Whirlpool stackable lte5243dq6

Posted by PDuff on 11 July 2014 - 02:51 PM

That must've been some "incident"!  Sounds like something funny happening with the neutral.  Washer only works with dryer timer on......heating element shorted to ground?  Also check the washer lid switch for continuity.
