#310005 Whirlpool Model LCE4332PQ1, S/N CR01342508

Posted by PDuff on 23 December 2014 - 11:03 AM

Sounds like a weak brake actuator solenoid not properly disengaging.  Solenoid should read between 710 and 870 ohms.  Might have to replace the splutch assembly for any possible damage as well.

#310002 Thermador PG486GEBS/02 - not maintaining temp

Posted by PDuff on 23 December 2014 - 10:47 AM

With the absence of any error codes indicated by the flashing oven leds, and the revisions made to the replacement main control boards (I went half blind with all of the terminal changes on the last one I replaced), I'd probably replace the control.


Any other symptoms (fans, oven lights, etc)?

#307735 A9700 - Not doing anything.

Check the fuse and the check switch located near the lid switch for continuity.  The knob should go back on the timer shaft easy enough, and secured with the metal spring clip.

The FF error on this LG made darling would indicate a problem with the evaporator fan motor.

#306685 Maytag A613 Series 10 Slow Fill HOT

Posted by PDuff on 29 October 2014 - 03:15 PM

New valve should do it.  The original fill hoses for this washer had a set of screen washers at the elbow end, but they appear to be clear.  (Of course, if you still have the original 25 year old fill hoses and they're in good shape....Well done!)


After installing the new valve, check the operation during fill.  If you notice a leak from the left/rear cabinet, you may need to replace the water injector.  It's an inexpensive part and may act up when full water flow is re-introduced from the new valve.

#306684 Frigidaire refrig FSC23F7HSB8 water filter won't come out

Posted by PDuff on 29 October 2014 - 03:01 PM

Concur with Brother BryanS, filter is frozen in place.  There's also a bulletin on these filters stating the inlet and outlet ports may be angled slightly inward, causing freezing and removal issues.

Depending on the serial number, you'll be needing one of the upgrade kits or just the icemaker control board.  Kit 5303918495 can be used if there's been no upgrade, and has all of the parts needed (and some not needed).  Your series may only require the board.

If the front oven liner frame isn't damaged, you may need to replace the receptacles.

#306592 JADE refrigerator RJRS4880D no power

Posted by PDuff on 28 October 2014 - 12:52 PM

Check for line voltage inputs and outputs per the label on top of the Power Supply.


1.  Line Input

With Main Power switch on check for line input on input terminal.


2.  DC Output

Check for +12 VDC and +26 VDC output on output terminal.

Check for +12 VDC on Main Control terminals JP11 - 3,2

Check for +26 VDC on Main Control terminals JP11 - 3,1

If voltage is "pulsing" in a repetitious manner there is probably an overload condition on the output side of the Power Supply.

Remove JP7.

If "pulsing" persists, test JP7 harness for short circuits (JP7 - 15, & JP7 - 15,16)

If "pulsing" stops, remove JP11.

    If "pulsing" persists, replace Power Supply.

    If "pulsing" stops, replace Main Control.

#306325 Whirlpool wfw9200sq00 - F20 Error Again

Posted by PDuff on 24 October 2014 - 02:36 PM

Replacing the valve and flowmeter should square it away, especially since you've replaced the valve once already.  This model has the good pressure switch but it's a good idea to inspect the pressure hose while you're back there.

#306324 Maytag MHWZ600TW01 shuts off at high speed spin

Posted by PDuff on 24 October 2014 - 02:25 PM

Also check for a loose wire harness connector at the motor.  If that looks good, disconnect and check the motor windings for continuity.  Resistance should be about 6 ohms.

#306321 Fridgdaire FWS1339AC1 agitating, not spinning

Posted by PDuff on 24 October 2014 - 01:48 PM

Sounds like it.  A leaking tub seal can cause the lower bearing on these transmissions to seize, and you would have to replace the transmission as a whole.

#306303 Unresponsive KitchenAid Dishwasher KUDK02CRBS4

Posted by PDuff on 24 October 2014 - 09:29 AM

Most likely a faulty key in the touch control.  Retrieve the technical sheet from behind the bottom access panel and perform the keypad test.  Also check for proper voltage at the power connection box, and that the control fuse is not open.

#305322 Dryer heats but barely dries, and I discovered it is holding water inside it....

Posted by PDuff on 10 October 2014 - 12:55 PM

Yes Sir.  If the motor is running and the drum is turning, then you have a bad blower.  Comes as an assembly with the housing.

#305317 Samsung dryer DV419AGW/XAA noise

Posted by PDuff on 10 October 2014 - 12:06 PM

Concur with the Brethren.  Squealing or thumping noise can be attributed to the rear support roller.  If it's thumping, also inspect the drum, particularly at the seam.  I've seen ovalling, damage and even separation occur.
