Went to look at a Bosch washer and Drier in a hair saloon on Robson Strasa (St. ) Drier not heating Washer leaking .
Looked at dried first took of back cover and reset thermal fuse. Told her if it happened again I would replace the thermo. She insisted the bellows on the washer was leaking , did not even look at it .
Refused to pay for the Drier 2nd Appliance rate.$44.75 “ All you did was press the little red button. “
Did not want to pay diagnostic on the washer as she had diagnosed it herself.
At this point told her it would be $300 to replace the bellows . Diagnostic comes off the total cost of the repair but she refused to pay.
Came back replaced the bellows She diagnosed . Collected $300
Before I got back to the Van . She came running out to the “ It's leaking again.”
What I found the leak would only happen on spin. The drain hose came out the right side to a sink Was clamped to the wall and was pointing up at a 45 dr. angle. In spin water would dribble out the end of the hose follow the hose back to its lowest point and drip to the floor on the right side. The water would then follow the slope on the floor and come out the left side of the washer.
Pulled the hose so it pointed down 45 dr. and stopped the leak.
I should have felt bad about charging her $300 for a repair she didn't need .
She insisted the bellows was the source of the leak and need to be replaced. I only did what she asked.
After stiffing me on the 2nd appliance .. and not willing to pay anything on the first visit.
I was not willing to go the extra mile for this Lady.
This was started by another tech when I took a week off. Original compliant displays flashing 8s and unresponsive. I had a feeling I was walking into a Cluster …. Replaced wiring harness as advised by Techline only took an hour or so. Still flashing 8s.Called Techline and was advised to change out left hand board. Not sure if he meant the touch pad control or the relay board I ordered both. Went back and replaced both parts still flashing 8s. At this point the costumer said take it to your shop and bring it back when its fixed. Excrement. The next time I called techline I got someone from Quebec ,Canada Ayh. He was adamant I change the harness and the induction board. Ordered the induction board. Changed that out , But by this time I had reinstalled the original relay and left touch pad control. Now I have NO display . To remove and install the touch pad control you have to twist the board and I think doing this mucks up the printed circuit . The only difference I could find was with original induction board I got 11 vdc on the new one 13 vdc pins 1-4 .Going to the touch pad.
Any help on this lovely Piece of Electrolux engineering would be appreciated.
As I am unable to post on other threads at this time I would like to say I am a Tech servicing downtown Vancouver . The Patina a 37 story hi rise at 1028 Barclay st. has over 250 mah2400aww. washers .A wonderful Maytag product made by Samsung . Before it was occupied I was called in on six “ LE codes” after it was opened I got anther six “LE codes” in every case I changed out the control board part number 34001379 and fixed the problem. Other then pulling coins and shite out of the drain pump , this is the only only part I have EVER changed out on this modal in over two years to fix this unit . The W/P part retails for $230.92 up here . The same part from Samsung retails for $142.90.
Another clue if you hit the Power button and you don't hear chimes change out the control board.
