#320865 Samsung WF218ANW/XAA drain problem

Posted by johntech on Yesterday, 09:16 AM

Check for loose wire connections and put a meter on the pump when it is running a normal cycle and is acting up. You may have a board problem. You should get a steady 120v when the pump is supposed to be on.

Posted by johntech on Yesterday, 09:09 AM

You need to roll her out and visually inspect the water lines and water valve. All leak troubleshooting is visual.

If you plug du103* into the download search box you will find a service bullitin that describes your problem. Search the site before asking questions there is a lot of information available here for those who know how to find it.

Disconnect the duct and see if it dries faster, if it does then the problem is in the ducts.

Make sure washer is level, then I always change the tub support rods even if they dont look bad, that normally gets it.

Have you checked the sensor wires on the front bulk head? That is what tells the dryer when it is dry. Wet clothes hit the 2 wires and the machine detects continuity and keeps running. When the clothes are dry no more continuity is detected and the machine will complete the cycle.

#319254 Kenmore elite he3 dryer cord/plug incompatibility

Posted by johntech on 05 May 2015 - 06:05 PM

That green on the center lug should be removed. Yes the 4 wire cord separates the ground and the neutral, the picture You linked still has a ground (green) hooked up to the neutral lug (white wire). It will prob. Still run wired that way but you are losing the protection of a 4 wire cord.
Strain relief is a metal bracket that sits inside where the cord enters the machine to prevent the wires from being ripped off the machine if pulled.

Posted by johntech on 05 May 2015 - 05:53 PM

#319039 freezer at 30°F, frig at 65 what is wrong? 3638784480

Posted by johntech on 02 May 2015 - 07:19 AM

First thing I would check is if the compressor and condensor fan are running when it is supposed to be cooling. Condensor fan located in back compartment by compressor. Then o would check to see if the evaporator fan inside freezer is running when it should be cooling. If both fans are moving air then You will need to take the back of the freezer apart and look at the evaporator coils after it has been plugged in for a day. They should have an even frost pattern. If they are only frosted on top then you have a refrigerant leak. If it is a big block of ice then you have a defrost problem.

When you blow through the pressure tube disconnect it at the pressure switch and give it a real hard blow so that air goes into the wash tub just i case some gookus is in the tube. some of them don't have much water in them.

#318529 Kitchenaid KSCS25INSS00 compressor cooling fan not working

Posted by johntech on 24 April 2015 - 06:48 AM

An inverter board controls motors, also called mcu or motor control board. It tells compressor what to do. The main board on yours I belive is attatched to the bottom of the unit. You should be able to see it if you lay on the ground and pull off the front vent panel.

#318333 Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB710LCS0 timer stalled at 7 o'clock

Posted by johntech on 21 April 2015 - 05:58 PM

I see that all the time. They call them dead spots, a place where the timer does not advance but if you manually advance it everything works. normally it is the timer motor gears that wear out and cause this type of failure.
