      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

It Tumbles OK, and drains the Water out, but won't Spin ?

Diagnostic Test:

The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob.

To START THE TEST:

• On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up.

(NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that can be rotated 360°, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.

• Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.

• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.

1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.

2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.

3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.

4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.

5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.

6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.

7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.

8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).

9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the

washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened.

To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.

10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

Exiting Diagnostic Mode

There are two options for exiting the Diagnostic Test mode and returning the washer to normal operation:

a ) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR

b ) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position. Press Options and Pause Cancel buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

If a situation arises where you cannot exit the Diagnostic mode as described above and the bank of 5 LED’s on the right end remain ON regardless of Program Knob position,

a combination of pushed buttons may have caused the control to enter a special factory test mode.

Disconnect power to reset the control to return washer to normal operation is this occurs.
