In Topic: I'm getting a FH error on a Whirlpool Duet GHW9200LQ0.. Bad inlet solenoid?

10 December 2014 - 11:20 AM

I'm tesing it in my shop.  I only have the cold water hooked up and there is no connection at the hot water.  Water pressure coming from the taps is great.  Though I am only testing cold, there is an issue with the hot water, and it's off to the machine, but I have been testing on cold water cycles only.  Should that matter/


  One issue of note is that the cold water backflows out of the hot water side.   I need to check and see if it's sending power to the hot side when it shouldn't.  I don't know why I didn't think of that.  


   I'm going to pick up a new inlet valve for my return Thursday and I will know more then.   

   Just the backflow out the hot side lets me think that it' may have bad water pressure as it is allowing a backflow to happen.

I had one of these the other day - turned out to be a faulty water supply valve at the house side.

In Topic: Circulation motor replacement, DU1145XTPBA - waterproofing ideas?

They call it a triple lip seal, we call them triple drip seals. Would recommend replacing entire pump and sump assembly rather than just the motor. All kidding aside, I'm with Chat, never had a second motor fail.

 Yep, replace entire assembly.

In Topic: K/A frig. KBRC36FMS01, chirping / not cooling

08 December 2014 - 12:00 PM

I had a similar situation with a 42" KA built in.  Faint chirping, evap fan constantly cycling on and off.  Owner let it go for so long that the evap fan had become noisey to the point of it needing replacing.  Sent the board to Core Centric and they rebuilt it.  Quick turnaround time and the price was decent.  While the board was out for repair I stumbled upon this guys blog (scroll about half way down for the control board content): http://www.stevejenk...ol-board-for-6/


When the board came back to me from being rebuilt I compared it to his findings - dead nuts on!

That looks like a lot of steps!  I've never made the plunge to buy the equipment to replace the bearings as I'm 0-50 in selling the job.  Seems like customers elect to buy a new washer instead.
