    whirlpool dryer EED4400WQ0. After trouble shooting the dryer for no heat, I found that the thermostats (reg, high limit, blower) and switches(timer and centrifugal switch on the motor) all read 0 – 0.3 ohms and the heating element read 10 ohms. Any suggestions on what to check next?

  2. Older Maytag top load washer Model A9400S.
    Replaced Seal kit,and Bearing kit. Also, new drive belt.
    Machine fills properly, agitates properly, begins spin cycle and almost gets to full speed when it stops abruptly. If not touched , timer advances and machine starts spin again and stops again as it almost reaches full speed.
    I removed belts, and installed only pump belt. t runs without stopping and pumps out water,
    It is almost like there is a sensor telling it to stop: possibly out of balance, but it is not going out of balance.
    Any help woud be much appreciated. Thanks.

  4. I’m am working on a kenmore fridge model 106.54606300. The evap fan stopped. I checked the supply plug for the fan and it showed 110 volts but when I plug the fan into it and check power in the back of the fan plug it shows 4 volts. I did purchase a new fan motor thinking it was tired. What I’m I missing?

    Issue: when click on start it flashes orange

  6. Hi there, I desperately trying to find out the spot where to connect lever-actuator DC66-00850A001 (ring-ended) for the Samsung washer MODEL: WW10H8430EW/SA. I’ve changed the door lock EMZ Type881 Part number DC34-00026A and it is easy to understand how to connect lever-actuator DC66-00850A001 to the door lock. The other end has a ring shape and no visible connection around the two pump assembly and surroundings. Please share any ideas or navigate me where to search.

  7. I have a GE gas stove model PFS950SEF1SS . Lower oven was on during a power outage. After the power came back on the lower oven will not heat up. Every thing else works fine. No problems with control panel or upper oven. Could this be an igniter problem for lower oven?

  8. I have a whirlpool cabrio washer that is giving me F71 error code which is a suds code. I replaced hub six months ago. The same code just came up and I was wondering if the washer impeller might have something to do with it? How can I tell if it’s bad?

  9. I have a whirlpool washer model # WTW5300VW2
    When its cold outside and the temp in the house is cooler the washer spins during the drain cycle. The washer makes a loud clicking sound when it spins while full of water. I was told the Neutral drain assembly was bad. I changed the entire transmission. This did not fix the problem. Now someone said replace the clutch. Could the clutch be the problem or did I get a transmission with another bad neutral drain. Is there anything else I should look at to resolve this problem?

  10. I bought a used Maytag washer today to help a friend. It’s a Maytag MVWX500XWO MODEL. When hooked up, it made some clicking sounds, kid lock light started flashing, made more clicking sounds, but would never load water either. Help!

  11. Flex line on back of LG dryer will not budge. We purchased the dryer 2 yrs ago and the appliance store installed it. We have moved into a new home out of area and are trying to replace the flex line and install the dryer. I can not seem to get the nut on the old line to budge. What could they have possibly sealed the line with and what can I use to break the seal? Also, is it possible to just remove the nipple on the dryer and replace it?

  12. I have a whirlpool cabrio top load washer model number wtw5640xw3 lid lock flashes after tryin to start cycle then just stops until lid unlocks with it still on but didnt finish cycle can anyone help

  13. Brian Dorsheimer

    I have a KitchenAid model KSC24C8EYY04 refrigerator and the ice maker stopped working. The actuator on the door still makes the same noise it always has when depressed but the ice dispenser fails to turn. Also the ice production stopped as well. I noticed the dispenser was iced over so I cleaned it all out. It didn’t help. I also took the ice maker cover off and saw that there was ice partially ejected but still in the ice maker. I also cleared that out as well. Finally I trekked turning the bar with teeth that ejects the ice and nothing still. I also tried turning it on and off and cleaning the sensor that shuts it off when full.

    Any ideas. Could 1 motor be the cause of both issues? Is it likely electrical?

  14. I have a Kitchenaid French door refrigerator model KFCS22EVMS00 that is stuck on 0 for the freezer and 38 for the refrigerator. The filter reset light also keeps flashing and cannot be reset. Any of the buttons on the inside of the fridge will not work. Any idea what might be wrong? Thanks, Ger

  15. My oven broke on my gas oven/stove top. But ive been using just the stove. So someone sent me a used kenmore model number 79078642602 saying the stove and oven both work. When it got delivered i noticed the top at the stove is missing the 4 holders u rest ur pots n pans on top of. Then i notice there is no middle pieces for the stove. The top just has 4 spots where the grates would go but theres not even that little circle where the fire comes out. It is just 4 posts. 4 round metal kinda pipes sticking up. I have no idea what to do?

  16. Admiral LNC6743A71 washing machine.
    Machine will fill and agitate but won’t spin or empty.
    Lid switch seems to work. The timer will move thru the spin cycle but the machine won’t spin.
    I do remember smelling something before it stopped spinning, but when I looked underneath, everything looked fine. There was some rubber on one of the pulleys.
    Last night I opened it up and cleaned a few things. Put it back together and it ran fine for one wash. Tried again and no spinning. Do I need a new belt?

  17. I purchased a used KitchenAid wall oven, KEBS147DWH1. Not getting response from keypad, beeping. If I hold down Cancel key I’ll get an F2 E3 failt. If I clear that I get a 5nd Hi then 5nd Lo message. Any ideas?

  18. I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model number KDPE234GPS0. In the first wash cycle it starts and stops every few seconds even when emptying out the water. Eventually it runs continuously unless you interrupt the cycle by opening the door and then it starts the start/stop process all over again

  19. I have a GE, Adora microwave, Model # HDM1853SJ06, which suddenly lost power during use. I replaced the HVT fuses, which brought back power. However, upon testing the microwave (30 seconds), the microwave ran for about 1/2 second and lost power again. I assumed the fuses blew again and replaced with more new fuses. Same result.

    What could be causing this or do I just get a new one?

  20. Hi, I have a GE Profile gas dryer. The display works, we display also shows that the dryer is running and it counts down the minutes of the drying time. Problem is nothing is running. When I hit the start button it clicks everything turns on except the dryer the light inside and the control board. Again it does not start the dryer. Any ideas? Model# DPES810GG6WT

  21. 4 yr old upright kenmore freezer. Power works, has light. no compressor and no fan.

    best I can determine is the Temp. Control Thermostat that affect those two items. are there any other possibilities? computer board, etc thanks.

  22. I have a bosch nexxt 500 washer, that I just replace the drain pump. After reassembly, the latch lock no longer functions (it did prior to disassembly). I did not bump or knock it, just unscrewed and rescrewed it to the body of the washer. The latch buzzes 3 times, pauses and repeats the sequence three times before showing error code E01. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to bypass the lock, or if it is an alignment issue.

    Any guidance or ideas?

  23. I have a Samsung Refrigerator Model RF263BEAESR/AA 04. I’m having issues with the freezer not getting cold. The refrigerator side seems to be OK. I have replace the inverter board which didn’t change anything. I did the self diagnostic which showed no error. Tested compressor for continuity which tested fine. I’m running out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Chad

  24. My GE GSHS5KGXCCSS won’t make ice. It dispenses water through the filter just fine, so I know the supply lines are working ok. I did the test as prescribed by GE … turned the ice maker off and then on, then pushed the lever back and forth three times. I do see the plastic elements making a complete turn. What I don’t see is any water feeding into the icemaker.

    I then took some water using a cup and filled the icemaker manually. After an hour or so, it produced ice cubes (although they were stuck together so I realize it’s not working perfectly).

    Our appliance service company insists that the icemaker (and several other parts including the motor) needs to be replaced and since we have a $100 limit on reimbursement for parts, we have a balance due of $180 for the parts. When I called them to challenge them on this … telling them that the icemaker appears to be working, but the internal hose that supplies the water is perhaps what needs to be replaced, they insisted that their tech was right and they will not entertain any other options but to replace the icemaker and motor.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Am I heading down the wrong path presuming that the icemaker may be working, but the feeder line is what needs to be replaced?

    Many thanks for your help

  25. Whirlpool oven model #GY397LXUS03. It will be in the middle of a baking cycle it beeps 3 times and where the oven would display cooking temp, (upper left hand corner) the word “bake” flashes quickly and the light inside doesn’t turn on when I open the door. I have to hit cancel, then bake and set temp and it restarts oven. Today it did it to me 30 minutes into a self-clean cycle.

  26. Sears Kenmore model # 25316082108 chest freezer with electronic controls. Temp alarm keeps coming on. Temp set at -6 degrees but temp stays and then fluctuates between 10 to 12 degrees. causes alarm.

  27. I have an Amana front loader washing machine NFW7300WW0 that gives me a error code with that beeps two times in the wash cycle and pause then beeps three times and repeats again.
    I replaced the drain pump, pressure switch, door lock system, and temperature sensor.
    It does this random and the machine does not have an LED readout to tell me what code it is so I cannot pinpoint the exact problem just those beeps!
    I did go through the Diagnostic test and the error didn’t come up but it always comes back.
    Could it be possible that I have an out of balance issue causing this problem?

  28. 2008 frigidaire model frs6lp7jmo. Freezer is fine. Refrigerator is too cold. When I turn the refrigerator cold control to off The damper stays open. Is that pointing to a faulty damper assembly?

  29. I have a lg French door refrigerator model # lfx25975st/02 the lower door freezer is not freezing well. It takes like 12 hrs to freeze ice cubes in trays, altho the food in the bottom seems to stay frozen. The in door ice maker will make ice in about an hour and a half, but won’t dump unless I do it manually. Although i suspect this might be a separate problem. What confuses me is, if the door Icemaker is freezing on time and it gets cold air from the bottom freezer, why is it taking so for things to freeze in the drawer? Btw the seal looks ok

  30. have a kenmore (whirlpool?) front load washer model 417 48102701 will not final spin; will drain; no matter what set spin speed on control panel when cycle reaches drain and spin, control panel light moves to no spin; have replaced door lock switch with genuine part; have made sure drain and pump are clear; all other cycles work fine and agitates fine in wash cycle. does this sound like bad motor control or bad circuit board

  31. Type: Gas Dryer
    Make: Speed Queen
    Model: ADG30RGS111TW01

    I am having trouble with my Speed Queen gas dryer. It only heats up intermittently. I have replaced most of the suggested parts with no luck: cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat, coils, ignitor, thermal fuse, and flame sensor. I may be totally wrong, but could cold air coming in from the vent be throwing off the sensors? It seems to only work in the daytime and not during cooler nights.

  32. I have a Sears freezer that has quit working. The control panel on the front of the refrigerator is no longer usable. The light comes on in the freezer in the panel on the front shows something like numbers but they are not what supposed to be on there. The panel is how you adjust The temperature.

  33. I ordered and installed a control board from you a few days ago in my LG A/C Unit # LW1513ER. The a/c compressor would not shut off. Installed board and all worked fine. However, there is still an occasional a/c …compressor always on… issue. The only other parts I see that would appear to control the compressor or temperature are the temperature sensor on the front of the unit and the capacitor that sends the charge to start the compressor. Could one of these be bad and causing that kind of problem?

  34. I have a Samsung Model WF457ARGSWR/A2 washer. I had just started a load of laundry when I heard a loud bang and the washer went dead. I unplugged the washer from the outlet for a length of time, plugged it back and and it still will not power up. I am unable to remove my laundry as the door will not unlock. I have followed the directions on your site to drain the water. Is there a way for me to unlock the door manually? Thanks so much!

  35. Hi… I have a Jenn-Air Electric Wall Oven Model #WW27430B. The ‘bake’ heating element will not turn off. I replaced the oven control board – which wasn’t working, and now works – but the heating element still does not turn off – unless i cut the power. Any advise would be helpful! Thanks, Jay

  36. I have a LG LFX33975ST/03 refrigerator. The fridge stopped working overnight and when I looked at it we found the fuse blown on the PCB assembly main board (we did not see any code before this happened although it was during the night) Easy enough I ordered a new board and installed it. After it was installed the fridge powered back up but when the temp reached 20 deg in the freezer it threw a F DS code. After researching that found out it was the controller assembly with the defrost sensor. Ordered a new one and installed it and powered back on. Same result after it got down to 20 deg it threw the same code. Now I unplugged it for 20 min and plugged it back in to reset the code and it happened again. The freezer is getting to temp though it got down as low as -2 even with the code still showing. where do I go from here?

  37. My Maytag bravos x isn’t agitating for full wash cycle. It will for a few seconds, then does nothing…doesn’t turn or make a sound. It spins fine. It agitates fine without clothes, but doesn’t work with clothes, even very small loads.

  38. I have an Amana NED4600YQ1. On any heated setting, it runs for about 5min then stops. This is while unhooked from the exhaust, so no blockage. It won’t start again for a while (cooling?). The heating system has continuity, with 10ohms across the element. 250V at the wall, with 120V everywhere it needs to be. I’ve replaced the motor, rollers, idler pulley and belt. Now what???

  39. Samsung front loader washer model # WF42H5600AW won’t finish spin cycle we have cleaned filter on front bottom, it is level, we unplugged it, recalibrated it… during rinse and spin it will go down to 5 minutes then back up to 9 minutes… it will start to go into a heavy spin then just slows down

  40. I have a Kenmore elite oasis washer model #110.27032603 that has an error oL before it goes through the whole cycle. The machine is balanced the machine and I checked the electric source for problems that is all ok. All of the cycles just fill the machine and from the fill mode drop down to approx 5 mins remaining in the cyle and then just drain leaving the clothes soaking wet with the oL error code displaying. The drain and spin cycle is the only cycle that will actually spin out the clothes

  41. Bosch avantixx7 WAE42367gb/28 W/Machine.
    Had a F:16 code on screen so replaced interlock but now all it does it so each individual wash times but when you press start it just beeps twice….?
    Any ideas

  42. Frigidaire refrigerator model FGHB2844LF4. When plugged in only OF OF are shown on front panel. Nothing operates- fan, compressor and no lights. Any thoughts?

  43. My Amana washer (model NTW4501XQO)…ugh. when I load and click start, the fill light and lid lock light come on…then the lid lock light goes off (fill light stays lit)…then the lid lock light comes back on and then blinks…after a short time, the washer fills (lid lock light off)…at this time, if I click start again, lid lock light comes on and stays on til end of cycle. Problem next is that although the washer will drain, I do not believe that it is spinning because although the tub is “empty”, the clothes are soaked…this just started and the machine is only 6 years old. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  44. I have a frigidaire freezer. The control panel has been blinking the error code CE, and I have been unable to resolve the issue by replacing the controller or the control panel, as the troubleshooting portion of the manual instructs.

  45. I have a Kenmore HE2 dryer that will not produce heat have tested the thermal fuse thermistor high temperature thermostat and the element and all have continuity. also tested and I’m getting 240 volts to the element kind of stuck on what I should do. Model no is 110.87561602

  46. Hi,
    I have a 3 year old LRG3085ST gas range/oven with a heating problem. I set the oven to bake at 350° and it shows preheating on the display with the temp progressing upwards. The display stalls at 345° but the burner continues and the actual oven temp gets to over 450°. Then the ready chime sounds, the display says 350° but the oven is now over 450° and the display still says 350°. If I let the oven cool to 350° actual oven temp, the oven now will maintain 350°.

    If I try to preheat from cold to any temp below 300° it functions normally. Also, I can preheat to 275° and after the chime sounds hit Bake 350° or anything higher and the oven temp levels off and functions properly but no chime. VERY STRANGE. I have replaced the main oven PCB, relay board and the thermistor probe. I can make the oven serviceable by doing my two step preheat but shouldn’t have to. Also, there is no power to the convection motor at any temp. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Denis

  47. Installed a brand new Whirlpool WED4950HW0 yesterday. The drum turns but there is no heat. Checked all the thermostats, fuses and element for continuity. Checked the outlet for 220 volts. All OK. The kicker is this is the same problem I had with the old unit (also a Whirlpool) and the reason I replaced it. The other commonality is the 4 wire electric cord I reused and it looks fine. I am mystified. Any ideas?

  48. I have a Kenmore HE2 dryer 110 . 87561601. I have done a continuity test on the thermal fuse the thermistor and all the components on the heater assembly and I’m getting good readings. The dryer still keeps overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Also when I turn the dryer on just air the heating element still glows red hot. Is there something I’m not checking?

    1. DIY Help & Repair Tips

      Jeri Anderson,
      The most common reason the thermal fuse on a dryer keeps blowing is the venting system is blocked with lint.
      Check all areas of the vents!

  49. I am replacing a GE timer knob but the tab doesn’t want to press back down. My timer moves back and forth a little. I can not get timer knob close enough to timer to snap on do I need a new timer. Part number is wh11x10049. Timer switch wont line up.or snap on.

  50. I just purchased a new Whirlpool Electric Range WFE505WOHW.
    The new range control panel does not come on as you would expect.
    If I turn one of the burner knobs on it comes on.
    When I turn the burner knob off the control panel goes off (clock).
    Also when I do turn a knob on, the element does not heat.
    I have replaced the breaker and have checked to be sure the plug was wired correctly.
    I’m at a loss. Please help. Skf.

    1. DIY Help & Repair Tips

      Skiff,
      It sounds like a wiring issue if the control panel goes off when turning the burner knob.
      Possibly the wiring is crossed with the burner knob assembly and the control panel.
      Can you do some troubleshooting within the range and get back to us?
      Please let us know what you find.

  51. l have LG fridge model no. GR-S362QC.

  52. Jean Gilliland

    Portable air conditioner, Haier HPR10XC6, Serial# 016010465. When the compressor turns on, it starts rattling and spitting plastic parts out the exhaust hole, lower back. Think a fan blade has come apart, but don’t know the name or number of the part. Any help will be appreciated.

  53. My whirlpool gold refrigerator is not cooling, not making ice, not making water and display I’d flashing/beeping on “cooling off”

  54. GE model pfe28rshdss that’s 3 years old. Had an occasional issue with the fridge not cooling and what would alert us to the problem is that the interior lights would not operate and the water would not dispense. When this would happen, I would always find the compressor not running and the condenser coils very dirty and after cleaning the coils and resetting the breaker everything would be back to normal. This time however, after cleaning the coils and resetting the breaker, the compressor runs for a short period of time and then stops — along with the lights and water going out as before. Tried resetting the breaker several times, but same result. Not sure what this means, but I also notice that the cooling line coming out of the compressor get very cold at the initial startup, but then gradually get warm and wondering if that’s related to the compressor shutting down.

  55. I have a whirlpool side by side serial number HRW0449269 that’s running but not cooling and I already replace capacitor relay and starter with a 3 in 1 relay capicator and starter RCO 410 and compressor is running but still not cooling

  56. Washing machine agitates well, drains then starts to spin then stops can still hear Motor running but no spinning, when it does spin it spins well and fast . If I blow air into the water drain hose it bubbles like water is still trapped. It’s a ge WCXR1070TWW too load heavy duty 7 cycle clothes are left dripping wet

  57. We’ve had the washing machine (logik L94WM16) and it keeps getting error 21 we’ve had a plumber to look at it but it’s still getting the error

  58. Whirlpool washer wtw5000dw1 3 years old. It gets stuck on spin during a normal, heavy, or delicate cycle. I then put it on drain and spin and it works. I recalibrated it, unplugged it over night and still not working. I think it started after an unbalanced load.

  59. I have a Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator Model # G16FARXXBO3, SN: K13416352. The freezer at the bottom has been leaking water and has iced up. I’m not sure where the water is coming from. It is triggering my alarm now because the door doesn’t shut completely. I can’t figure out how to shut the freezer off to defrost it. We didn’t receive a manual when we purchased it. I tried finding one on line but it wouldn’t bring one up with this model#. Any suggestions. My frig is not that old. Thanks

  60. I have a maytag legacy series washer, mod mtw5870tw0. it is leaking somewhere and I cannot figure out how to get to the guts of the washer

  61. Fridge will not cool in either freezer or refrigerator…tried turning it off for a few days, it still did the same thing. Turned it off for a few months…same thing. I do not think the coils in the freezer are freezing up because the air that comes out of the vent in the freezer is very strong and not very cold.

    Could I have a freon leak, or could it be something else.

    My temps in my freezer are 54 degrees and the temps in the refrigerator are around 64…it stays this way, even though the compressor and fan cut off at times..it does seem to run forever, then both the fan and compressor shut off

  64. Hello Have a side by side Sears refrig. During the winter we can get all the ice it can make infact there are times we have to turn it off due to overflowing of ice. When the weather gets hot…barely makes enuf ice for one glass. I know this sounds stupid..but the refrig senses weather…..any suggestions? thank you for your assistance

  65. My Bosch dishwasher does not fill. When I take the filter out of the I can press the on button and it attempts to fill but I think the drain is stuck open and it does not fill. Then I realized how weird it is that I could turn it on with the door open. I tried to reset but that didn’t work either.
    To reset press the “power scrub” and “regular wash” buttons at the same time and “Auto wash” stays Illuminated. sometimes the regular wash blinks. The dishwasher is 7 or 8 years old and probably need to replace it but thought I’d give this a try first.

    Whirlpool dishwasher WDF730PAYM4.
    I have replaced heating element and thermostat but still won’t heat water or dry. Unit is approx 5 years old. What else could it be?

  67. Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator with bottom drawer freezer Model #GB2FHDXWQ01. The unit was unplugged for three months while we had issues with a repairman over the control board. We replaced the control board and have the refrigerator running but the bottom freezer drawer will not open.

    i have a Whirlpool washer model WTW5000DW1.. it drains the water out and when it kicks into high spin it makes a loud whirring noise when done the clothes are still WET…. i had a repaiman look at it and he replaced a capiciter and actuator…clothes are still WET..$350..and the same

  69. A month ago my freezer froze up. After having it fixed I have had several issues with both freezer and fridge. the fridge wont keep my food cold enough and the freezer will defrost and get hot enough for the back wall to be so hot I can not touch it. It melts and thaws what ever is in there then refreezes it. I have tried to tell maintenance what is going on only to not be listened to. I am at my wits end, I have had to replace food twice and I am going to have to do so again. The make is Hotpoint and the Model Number is HTR16BBRFRCC.

  70. Whirlpool Washer WTW5540SQ0 -(Washer is 12 years old.) For several years now, the “Water Level Knob” has been difficult to turn (if I am trying to increase the water level. If I am adjusting for smaller water level, the knob moves better.) Today I finally struggled and broke the knob which I swapped with the “Extra Rinse Knob” for now. Someone told me the “Water Level Switch Kit” (with hose) might need to be replaced and may make knob easier to turn right or left. This advice seems odd since my various levels of water appear to be working the same as when it was new. Does the dial get harder to turn with age? Could it be I need to replace both? Am I supposed to be pressing down hard as I turn the knob?

  71. WHIRLPOOL ED5LTAXVL00 REFRIGERATOR

    The other morning I noticed the compressor or fan on my refrigerator (side by side) wasn’t running. I opened it up and it was slightly warm inside the freezer and fridge, the light was still on. I unplugged it and opened the control board to find, what I assume is a ground wire, didn’t have good contact. I secured it and plugged the refrigerator back in and viola, compressor and fan start running. I’ve had to do this process roughly 5 times in 2 days. The last time that same wire actually seemed in contact pretty good as I’ve clamped it down tighter each time with pliers. What’s the issue here? Does my wiring harness have a short? Is there some other underlying issue? I’m fairly knowledgeable about tools and finding information, but not so keen on using a multimeter or repairing refrigerators. Can you explain it to me like I’m 5 years old? Thanks.

  72. I have a get profile refrigerator model #PFE29PSDASS it is staying at 59 degrees. We opened the back the fan was turning. We blew out dust. It still is not cold.

  73. Hi,

    I need help with my friends Brada washing machine. 1st the only issue is the drain pump but then I adjust the motor to tighten the belt but when my friend started to wash their clothes they hear load squecking noise.

    Washer Model. BRW200 BW. 5 year old washer.

  74. I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine. it’s been working fine, but when i tried to start a load this morning, it doesn’t fill at all with any water. if I close the lid, it sounds like it’s agitating but the knob clearly is at the very beginning. Any advice on what might be going wrong would be appreciated. Medical bills are adding up so i would like to make the repair myself if i can. thank you!

    I have a 2015 5 door whirlpool fridge model # WRV986FDEM00.
    When I wake up in the morning it is making a constant clicking noise.
    The front control panel functions are working except it won’t dispense water or ice.
    The fridge is not cooling.
    And when the door is open the lights do not come on.

    If I unplug the fridge and then plug it back in it resets everything and is back to normal operation.
    Then it will repeat the same thing about within a a week or a few days. It has happened 3 times already.

  77. Hi, I have a Kenmore oven 665.78003802 after surface cleaning today the electronic display stopped working. The time still displays but other buttons do not work. The oven stop buttons beep but, of course, the oven isn’t on. I did not allow liquid to drip into the control panel. I have already replaced the control board once so I am careful with it. I think I locked it somehow but it won’t unlock following the manual instructions. I have cut power. No help. Clock isn’t even flashing when I return power. Any suggestions?

  78. Hello, Model # not registed “#WTW8000BW0”.
    It’s a Whirlpool cabrio Platinum. Stopped in the middle of either a quick wash or normal cycle wash. I first unplugged and replugged to reset the board. Then went thru both auto and manual (dia test sequences) Attempting to check diagnostic codes, I had powered it up to try. My immediate question is that if standby mode is were I input the code. No flashing lights to indicate that the combination has been successful. Hence is that stand by mode?

  79. GE top load washer, 2013, electro mechanical controls, can’t find model number. water spills over the top of the drum during the high speed spin cycle, (wash or rinse, small or large load). Watching the washer go thru the cycle it looks like it has too much water in the drum when it starts its high speed spin. Pressure switch and drain both check out. I am at a loss as to what is causing this. We have used this washer for the last five years the same way so I do not buy we have suddenly started using too much detergent.

  80. I have a top loading Frigidaire washer model FWS446GHS1 that does not spin. The motor runs and the belt remains still and slips on the wheel. The motor is trying to turn the drum ant clockwise. With the machine off I can turn the drum by hand clockwise but not anticlockwise.
    The agitator cycle and drain cycles work OK its just on the spin cycle the drum is locked. Can you give me any ideas as to why this is happening. Much appreciated.
    Thanks Tony

  81. I have Kenmore 500 washing machine..I have no light that will come on…I have unplugged it when I plug it back in it sounds like it is draining then just makes a noise .it doesn’t even make the noise of it locking .how can I fix it what could it be

  82. Steve Jackson

    I have a kenmore oven (79096414408) that gets the f10 error code. The funny thing is that when we turn on baking the broiler heating element goes on. I tested both elements and they have the same resistance. I am thinking it could be the control board since the wrong element is being used. It worked fine up until today. The one thing we did was clean it a few days ago.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  84. I have an Xbox one that I use for YouTube and it works fine for that but when I try to play a game I can usually play it for a bit before my Xbox shuts off randomly with a clicking sound I’ve tried everything but nothing seems to help so if I can get some advice that would be apreciated

  85. I have a LG wt5101hv washer that is leaking water from the bottom. Whenever water is filling
    in the machine or just adding water manually, the water leaks from the bottom, I’m wonder if
    it could be the tub seals, the machine can’t hold any water inside. What would be the best way
    to troubleshoot this problem. Thanks!

  86. I have a White Westinghouse Refrigerator and with a model HRM1708DA-PH and serial #71201545. My question is that 3 weeks ago I went for a vacation and unfortunately I
    haven’t realize because of rushing that I accidentally unplugged it and when I’ve returned all the foods are in a disgusting state and so because of that I started cleaning but before cleaning I plug it again and it is working but when I’ve cleaned it and after removing several compartments and plugging it again there is no cooling. I even wait 6 hrs leaving the refrigerator on a max cooling state but still there is no cooling or whatsoever. I also notice that there is no sound. Lights are working, haven’t touch anything on the lower back where the compressor etc. is installed. Last question is that I still have not returned the compartments inside leaving only the casing hanging. Hope you can help me with my problem.

  87. 12 year old Whirlpool refrigerator GS5SHAXNQ00
    unit started making a intermittent “knocking” sound WHILE RUNNING. read on internet could be compressor going bad, also clean coils to insure unit is not overheating.

    Cleaned coils and checked both fans for operation, unit starts and runs quiet, shuts off quiet, cools fine during cycle, tested by letting unit turn on while running opened door and turn unit off, no noise, sounds and running fine.
    While unit is running at different times it makes a “knocking” noise, sound is coming from bottom of the unit. Knocking sound last for 10-30 seconds, did it 5 times prior to cleaning coils, made no noise for over 24 hours, noise started again 3 times the following day.
    Compressor runs quiet with no humming noise.

    please advise what you think is my problem
    Thanks!

  88. We have a Maytag dishwasher, model MDV8959SBW0, that will not fill with water. The machine sounds as if it is cycling normally, but does not turn on the water fill valve.

    The float and float switch (tested with a meter) appear to be working normally. Using a volt meter, we can see that there is no voltage getting to the fill valve solenoid at any point in the machine cycle. The electrical schematics appear to indicate that the solenoid should be getting 125VAC to open the fill valve, but this never happens.

    A replacement control board will cost $100 to $150 or more, so I would prefer to explore any other possible remedies before trying that.

  89. I have a Whirlpool Gold Series refrigerator. It recently has begun to play a short little tune. I know it is an alarm of some sort but not sure what it means. I have also noticed the ice maker isn’t working and the freezer is slowly started to thaw. It is model number WRF990SLAM00

  92. I have a Inglis whirlpool dryer IES5000RQ0.
    The dryer will only run for about a minute or two, then cut off.
    If i push the start button again it will cut on for another minute if I hold in the button.
    But will eventually cut off again.
    I have tested all the thermastat fuses in the back for continuity and they all check out fine, another reason I think they are fine is because it does the same thing when I use the “Air flow” cycle without the heating element kicking on.
    The timer makes noise sometimes, and then others times it’s quiet, then makes the normal timer sound other times…

  93. I have an Amana Refrigerator model AFD2535FES11 with bottom freezer. My ice maker quit making ice. I replaced the ice maker but still no ice. I took a hair dryer to the fill tube and made sure there wasn’t a frozen line. I also replaced the inlet water valve. Still no ice. There is water in the tube up to the ice maker on the back of the refrigerator. I am also getting water to the water dispenser in the refrigerator. What else could be the issue.

  94. I have a Kenmore Washing Machine series 200 Model 110.22332510.
    Only a few years old.
    The lid lock was acting up, then finally would not open to allow the lid to close.
    I replaced the lid lock mechanism.
    Now, when I turn it on, the only thing that happens is the Sensing Light flashes, that’s it.
    I have tried the diagnostic codes, troubleshooting, etc.
    Most things lead me to replacing the lid lock mechanism-but I did, it’s brand new.
    There are a few other things I can replace, but no exact way to know for sure what to replace before purchasing.
    Please help. I have never wanted to do laundry so badly in my life!

  100. I have an intermittent issue with my Hotpoint washer/dryer.
    Just before the machine changes from a wash cycle to a dry cycle the fault light indicating an output issues flashes.
    The wash cycle finishes normally and instead of switching to drying the machine makes a click when the wash cycle is finished (instead of the usual beep to indicate that it has finished the cycle) and does not switch to the dry cycle.
    I turn the machine on and off to clear the fault and change it to a dry only cycle and the dry cycle runs with no fault lights (however it has been taking longer for the clothes to dry).

    The issue started as intermittent but now happens during most of the loads.
    When I run the wash cycle only there is no error, and no error on dry cycles only therefore I believe this is an issue when switching from washing to drying only at the moment.
    I have unscrewed the thing at the bottom of the machine and had a feel around but I cannot find anything that could be causing a blockage.

    Is it safe to continue using it or am I potentially causing massive damage when running the machine even on wash/dry only cycles?
    Is there anything else I can try myself before calling someone out?
    (my landlord is very slow so if it can be done myself it would be much quicker and easier).

  101. 2012 Whirlpool fridge (bottom freezer). Not cooling (slightly cool). Fan sounds like its running. Freezer is fine. Temp set at 5. Repair came out and defrosted a fan (?) in the freezer and then it started cooling again (back in August). Worked fine until now.

  102. Refrigerator leaking hot water from top freezer section to lower refrigerator section even when ice maker water supply shut off.

  103. ET22DMW00 Whirlpool refrigerator with freezer on top, refrigerator on bottom. Has working ice maker. Makes ice & both refrigerator & freezer are able to keep cold temp. Problem is that (apparently) randomly the back of the freezer section (where the cooling coil is housed) will get a boiling hot spot in the lower center. If touched at this time it’s so hot, you are unable to continue to hold your hand against the back wall. You are able to hear the hissing sound of water hitting a hot service. This will last for about 5 minutes at which time there is hot water that drains from behind the back wall of the freezer and into the refrigerator section below through the drain hole. About half a cup of hot water is discharged. Then everything goes back to normal and the heat disappears and the water stops. Then anywhere from 12 hours to 24 hours later it happens again. And this happens even after the ice maker water supply is shut off. So it must be gathering the water out of the surrounding air.

  104. My dryer will not dry clothes there is no heat. I have thoroughly checked the heater element it is fine. It has continuity. I have checked all 4 fuses and the continuity is good with them. The dryer motor will run and turn the drum. The dryer will run 3 minutes and then turn onto cool down mode for 2 minutes and the cycle is complete. The dryer is whirlpool cabrio ywed5800bc0

  105. Hotpoint lb2006trf, bearing replacement is it possible. The drum case is sealed with sealant and the rear wheel is attached with a torx screw rather than a bolt

  106. I have a six year old Kenmore Elite top loader. I started to wash a load of clothes and after it filled up with water, it would not continue with the wash cycle. I tried turning it off and then selecting other cycles or functions and it would not even drain the water.

    I have noticed that since the problem occucred, the start chimes will still ring when I turn on the power, but no start or function lights come on the electronic dashboard when selected.

    Please help me diagnose if I need a new control panel, and if so, is it worth fixing? It a kinda iffy call by its age.

    Thanks so much for your input.

  107. The LED light by my water dispenser either needs to be replaced and/or have the wire connection tightened. It turns on/off on occasion like when I use the ice dispenser it blinks as the ice comes out. In short, I think it is just a loose wire, the bulb does work – I just don’t want to spend a fortune to have someone tighten a connection. I am just not sure the easiest way to pop the front panel open to tighten it myself. Thank you for your help!

  116. I have a Samsung wf80f5e0w4w. It will not fill with water. No error code comes up and I have cleaned the inlet water filter, had the top off and checked the pipes from the 2 solenoids to the soap tray are clear. With an electrical screwdriver I can see power is getting to the 2 solenoids but they do not spear to be opening. Purchased & fitted a new part as I was sure this was the problem but just the same so it is not the inlet solenoids. Any other easy bits to check? Must be something to do with the power feed to the soldenoids

  126. I have GE Gas Dryer Model DPSB620GC3WW which does not start. I have made several diagnostic checks with the digital control panel in service mode. There are no error codes, but somehow the panel indicates that the dryer door is open. I have replaced the door switch even though the original showed no electrical problem, but the problem is the same, it will not start. So I hot wired the motor relay and then the gas valve relay with on/off switches and found the dryer works and dries clothes. But of course there is no temperature control. Is this (dryer not starting) an eeprom problem (no eeprom error code)? Do I need to reset it? The digital control panel is no longer available.

  129. I have a Kenmore 90 Series Washer (110-C28922790). Washing , rinsing and draining no problem. But when it came to the spinning cycle doesn’t spin. I need to start spinning manually until it start spinning and depress the timer off and turn it to spin cycle to turn it on at same time (doing this step few time) manually spin it. Eventually it will start spinning to its full speed. I checked the coupling had no problem and the agitator little worn but will replace it. Can you tell me wants the problem. Thank you

  130. My GE profile PSC23MSTCSS makes ice but the auger doesn’t turn to eject ice. When I push a glass against the dispenser lever, nothing comes out in either crushed or cubed mode. All other indicator lights on the freezer door control panel momentarily dim when I dpress the lever for ice and if there is a normal hum occurring it goes quiet while the lever is depressed, only in the ice modes. The auger and auger motor turn freely by hand but make no noise or a move when the lever calls for ice. All other panel functions work fine. Also, randomly/occasionally the water will not dispense temporarily but continues to work for long periods. Could this be the motherboard or more likely something to do with the auger motor? Nothing is jammed with ice etc.
    The only other occasional issue is the temperature rises in both the freezer and refrigerator and rearranging the food in the freezer shelves seems to help that because it always comes back to the recommended temperatures eventually. Any advice on the order in which I should replace parts would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

  138. Hi,

    I have a smeg sr640xa side by side fridge freezer (frost free) about 10 years old.
    Freezer bottom was leaking water (drain hole frozen) but working however fridge is warm.
    Defrost heater and fans are working and I suspect it is either the defrost thermostat or timer that may be faulty.
    Are you able to tell me where they are located ( I have opened up both inside back panels of the freezer and fridge and cannot find anything that resemble either part. Could they be located at back bottom where condenser is or back top where fridge temp control panel is?

    Thanks in advance for your time and help.

  139. I have a 10 y/o whirlpool ref/fzr. the lights on both sides turn brown (sometimes). I listened to the frig running, with the doors closed and I herd the freezer fan slowing down. I replaced it but the lights still turn brown. the lights are clean of ANY dirt. then other times i go into the frig/fzr and the lights are bright white. what is causing the lights to brown out? Is it just a door switch going bad on both sides? the mod#ED5VHEXVB01, 25CF ref/fzr.

  140. My toilet has been draining slower than normal for a while but would still flush although you had to hold the handle Down the whole time until it flushed completely. I rarely ever put toilet paper in the toilet but recently i put it in there a few times and it wont flush. At first, it would fill up but would go down slowly if you just let it sit. Now it won’t go down hardly at all and plunger doesn’t help at all. I used a snake and an auger and still nothing. So i bought a Septic system cleaner that is non-corrosive so it IS safe to use on toilets however it says to flush twice after pouring the liquid into the toilet but since my toilet won’t flush what do I do. It says If thats the case then to pour it into septic tank but I run off of the city’s water. The water valve is turned off so should I just pour it in toilet and flush anyway and hope it doesnt flood?

  144. Sub Zero Refrigerator/Freezer, Model #BI-42S
    The control panel has been displaying 38 degrees for the frig side as set by the factory.
    However, recently we noticed food in the bottom drawers would freeze, and the wrench sign showed up in the control panel.
    We cleaned the condenser and powered off and on yesterday around 02:30 (Jul 3rd).
    Checked around 21:30 the same day, no change – the wrench sign remained and food in the bottom drawers still frozen.
    Also, the inside wall behind the drawers is coated with frost.
    What might be causing the problem?

  147. My Samsung TV was shutting down and kept clicking. I just had all the capacitors replaced yesterday and it’s still doing the same thing. WHY?

  148. I ordered a new water filter for a Kitchen Aid KSCS25FTMS02 from website. Removed the old filter and replaced it wth the new one. It didn’t install correctly and started leaking water right afterwards. Removed it and made sure the cap was on correctly and re-installed it. Still leaking, bad enough to go through to my basement and ruin a ceiling tile. We removed the backing from the fridge and my husband says that the valves inside are broken. Is that possible or do I just need to try to reinstall again? They sent me a new one or are there valves inside that can break?

    1. We bought a Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refrigerator.
      In june of 2015 after returning a refrigerator we bought at Sears that froze everything in the refrigerator.
      We turned it back in and bought the model 795-74022-411 and just had a repairman out for it was making loud noises.
      He said we would have to pay $500.00 plus time to take the frig apart and fees for whoever works on it.
      I paid him $99.oo to tell me we are not covered and they will not fix the Main Motherboard.
      Is there any way we can find out if this board is still on warranty?
      Another thing, are all refrigerators made with this board in them?

      1. DIY Project Help Tips

        Dorothy,
        Is this your Kenmore refrigerator here on SearsPartsDirect?
        If so you can order the main board there if you need to.
        Or simply call Kenmore and ask if the unit is under warranty and also the board.

  149. I replaced the thermal fuse on my Kenmore electric dryer. Now it seems like it’s not drying as efficiently as before the fuse blew. It takes several extra cycles to get a load of clothes dried. Any suggestions on what I can do/check? I cleaned out all the build up lint as well when replacing the fuse.

  150. my Beko 6kg AAA+ lets in some water then stops i have cleaned the filters and outlet pipes and it is still not doing a full cycle please advise

  151. A GE fridge – gts18ibmbrcc – The evaporator is clear of ice after a defrost cycle but the drain pan and the two vents in the drain pan below the evaporator are solidly clogged with ice. I see an aluminum drain strap wire is inserted into the drain hole, but the Shepard’s hook at the top of the drain strap wire isn’t hanging on anything in order to conduct some defrost heat into the drain. This is a used refrigerator my friend bought, so I’m not sure what the Shepherd’s hook is supposed to hang from. This model has a glass radiant defrost heater.
    Do I hang this heat-conducting wire on the glass radiant heater, or hang it on the bottom tube of the evaporator?

  155. We have a 48 inch built Kitchen-aid refrigerator, model is KSSO48QMB01, About 6 weeks ago the over temp alarm came on, hit the reset all was fine. Couple of weeks later it went off again and when we reset it but it kept going off again. We noticed ice cream was starting to melt but meat stayed frozen and ice was still being made. Fridge stayed cold but freezer was between 15 and 20. Had a repair guy come out, he said we probably had a leak and that it would be 500-600 for freon and then if that wasn’t the problem, another 300 for an evaporator but no actual problem was diagnosed. Nothing was tested. We decided were going to just replace the fridge with a standard refrigerator. Shopped for a week, found one we were going to get and suddenly the fridge was working correctly again. Freezer temperature was between 0 and -5. All appeared well, called original repair man and he had no idea what could have caused the problem but agreed it wasn’t a lack of freon. Hoped it was a one time thing but after a week of working correctly, it is now warming up again!

    The above freezer keeps tripping the main power, it has only recently started doing it.
    I have no idea why it does it.

  160. When I open the Samsung DV5H7000E(G) dryer door to pull out clothes while they are drying, the dryer time stays lighted and it will not restart. It has not done this before, and just started it recently.

  161. My Frigidaire Washing Machine model LTF2140ES3 won’t turn off or go into any wash mode. As soon as power is supplied to the unit, the leds light up and stay lit. And you can not turn off by pushing “Pause Cancel” button. When I push the “Pause Cancel” button, the machine beeps and leds flash three times. This problem happened after I had pushed several different buttons and cycle selections in an attempt to get washer to go into its spin cycle. Before this ‘leds staying lit and not turning off/going into any wash cycle’ problem, the washer would not go into spin to complete a wash cycle. I’ve tried to do a factory/master reset, and check for the stored error code and/or run diagnostics, all to no avail. But I’m not at all sure I’m doing it correctly, though following online instructions as best I can. We’re in desperate straits to wash our family’s clothes. Can someone please advise what I should do?

  164. Pulled my Samsung dryer to clean and look behind it after it quit running.
    Plugged it back in and pushed the dryer back in place.
    Now when she pushes the start button on the dryer the HALL LIGHT comes on even though the switch is off.
    The dryer still will not run.
    I had a friend that is an electrician look at it and he said he thought it was the dryer.
    I just wanted a second opinion before we purchased another dryer.

  165. I mistakingly supplied my new vizio D32H-CO LCD TV with a 240V instead of 110V.

    Kindly help me fix this whether by selling a new power board to me or any option u may deem fit.

  166. I have a AEG dishwasher with a i30 error.
    Model number is FAVORIT40860.
    Whenever I select a program the drain pump stays on.
    The error stops after switching the washer on and off for about 4 times and then fills with water.
    However 2 minutes in the wash cycle, the error appears again and the drain pump starts.
    I checked the bottom pan under the washer for any water that can trigger the anti-flood switch but found none.
    I also removed the foam float just to make sure it does not interfere with the micro switch but the error stays.

  167. GE Dishwasher – GLD5660V00SS – My dishwasher buttons are not responding. A couple weeks ago the the “hi temp wash” light started blinking and beeping on/off in a random order. This has happened a couple times with no noticeable pattern. I took a video of it too. When this happened there was nothing going on to any other appliances and no storms in the area. The “normal wash” cycle button was also lit but didnt flash. I have tried resetting the washer and tried removing it from power by turning off the breaker for different periods of time. The “normal wash” light comes on and beeps when i close the door – so I would assume that the latch switch is fine. But none of the buttons respond anymore.

  168. GE dishwasher – GD5660v00ss – Problem started with dishwasher randomly beeping and the “hi-temp wash” light flashing – no obvious patter to beeping and lights. Tried all the suggested resets I could find, turning power off at fuse panel for different periods of time, holding the reset button, etc. Luckily I was able to get it to run a wash cycle twice in the past week. I think it was just luck. Now I cannot get it to run a cycle. The normal/wash light will come on as well as the heat/dry light after a hard reboot but it goes off after a short time. The odd beeping cycle patter cannot be duplicated anymore. The switch seems to be working fine because I can depress it and the washer makes a beep like the door has closed.

  169. I have a KitchenAid refrigerator, Model KSRS25FTSS01 and the front panel display quit working, could you give me some tips, please?

  170. I have a Maytag Washer performa PAV3200AWW.
    A necklace was left in pocket, got caught in drain pump, twice!!
    (Same necklace, two separate pieces)
    So, I broke it down a third time, but no necklace in pump.
    I’m getting ready to reassemble the washer (removed inner tub as well, just to be sure)
    However, sum of the teeth on the pump are missing.
    Would this cause loud rattling sounds or can I still run the machine without problems?

  171. carol manning

    I have a front loader samsung washer it has a code DE.
    It’s not draining out water.
    I put a new pump in it 2 weeks ago.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      carol manning,
      Why is the DE Error displaying on the panel of the Samsung Washing Machine?
      This error appears when the door is not properly locked.
      If the Machine is displaying “dE” error…
      Check for the following:
      -The door must be properly closed.
      -Check the end of the drain hose is too low and be sure the drain hose holder in the back is not detached.
      -You can check the end of the drain hose to see if it is submerged in water.

      For Samsung Washer Model numbers: WA90VPBEH/XTL, WA95BWBEH/XTL, WA95BWPEH/XTL, WA88TPBEH/XTL, WA90VNKEH/XTL, and others.

  173. I am using an LG top loader turbodrum DD 8.0kgs washing machine.

    The water is still in the bowl.
    It also had a burning smell.

  174. I have a Whirlpool gas dryer (Mod# WGD5530SQ0) that won’t start. The inside light illuminates and it doesn’t make any noises when the start is pushed other than the timer ticking. I’ve checked the easy stuff (thermal fuse, door switch, timer, and start button all have continuity). The timer ticks and I can hear the relay switch click when it should start and stop. I’ve checked the thermostat and drum belt. I took the drum off and reassembled it. The motor turns easily. If I bypass the door switch and spin the drum by hand I can get the end of cycle buzzer to buzz, but it stops as soon as I stop turning the drum. Any ideas?

  175. David Fletcher

    I have a Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator and the ice maker stopped making ice and will now just leak water out if the switch is on and I’ve noticed the water has started to dispense slower.
    I’ve been doing research and it seems like it could be the solenoid valve on the back or I was thinking the filter needed to be replaced or both.
    I checked the drain in the freezer and it’s not clogged at all.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  176. I’m troubleshooting a Frigidaire front load washer FTR630AS0 that will not agitate or spin. At around 16 years old, it’s all original with no replacement parts… until now. The door lock light illuminates and the door lock engages. The water pump still functions and the timer dial turns with audible clicking to engage cycle sequences.

    I’ve done some testing with a multi-meter and I’m getting 120V on pin 3 at the pressure switch but 0V between pins 5/6 at motor control board. I tested the windings of the motor and they’re good at 2.8 ohms so the motor is sound.

    This issue immediately followed a mechanical repair that I had to undertake. One of the stabilizing shocks had failed and caused a suspension spring to snap, allowing the drum to fall into the chassis. I replaced the spring and both shocks but now the motor fails to engage. It’s likely that the impact of the drum dropping into the chassis caused some secondary problem but don’t know what to suspect first.

    Rather than throw money at random parts (door latch assembly, motor control board, etc) I’d like to know the usual suspects and the most likely source of the problem. Can anyone please help me narrow this down?

  178. Richard Vargo

    I have a GE washer model #WPSE4200AOWW making a loud scraping noise. I determined that the sound is coming from the washer gear case and brake assembly which appears to be sitting lower than it should and the round portion at the bottom at the bottom of the gear case is scraping the washer leg and platform assembly. Can you tell me what I need to do or replace to repair this washer? Also if you can recommend a website that has step by step instructions on repairing this washer, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

    I need to replace the control knob but the entire panel on the front appears that it must come off to do that. Does anyone know for sure if the entire panel needs to come off and, if so, do I need to remove the entire top of the machine to do that? I have looked for the obvious screws, etc. to release it, but no luck. Do you think it would just “pop” off if I tried it at the edges? I have a photo but am unable to include it here for anyone to see………..

    There was a ice buildup behind the refrigerator evaporator cover so i defrosted the fridge by unplugging it for 48 hours.
    I plugged it back in today and the code 40 E came up immediately.
    On the back it shows ice room fan error.
    I unplugged it for 5 min and plugged it back in and after 1 min the same code came back.
    Is this error code happening because its too warm in the ice room?
    Will the code go away once the fridge and freezer cool down again?

  197. I have a Whirlpool fridge model # AFI2538AEB and i need to know if the 16 pin wire harness in the ice maker housing inside the fridge and the 16 pin wire harness on the ice maker itself are suppose to have the same wire colors on each harness the 1 in fridge is the male and the one on ice maker is female all the colors on both of mine are almost the same except where there is a gray/black wire and a orange/white wire on the fridge harnesses first two wires on 1 side of the harness.

    The ice maker has 2 white wires for the first 2 wires on the same side of the harness that the fridge has the gray/black and orange/white and those 2 wires actually go into this little metal eye looking thing that snaps onto the plastic piece that the ice maker assembly screw down onto it looks like maybe some type of ground because the metal ice mold sits on top of it so that it touches it.

  198. I have a Whirlpool french door refrigerator model number WRF736SDAM14
    In the manual it says the panel lights after 2 minutes will go into sleep mode.

    Circular element failed.
    Sparks and flame in oven whilst cooking.
    Element suspected chaffed at ring contact point.
    Remaining 3 elements and thermostat still worked, evidenced by oven light dimmed with thermostat heat demand.
    After a break with power isolated, tried again but thermostat light came on even with temp selector at zero for each element selected and confirmed heating.
    I don’t know what has changed since the first test.
    Could it suggest a stuck relay??
    What is likely to have failed other than the circular element? Is there an element fuse?

    The breaker has never tripped at any time.
    What would cause the dryer to cut off and act as though there is no power for 30 min mid cycle yet the interior light comes on when you open the door?
    A bad motor, thermostat or possibly the control panel?

    Burnt plastic smell.
    Opened door panel and found part of wiring harness literally melted into the heavy plastic backing panel.

    Any suggestions on what the problem is and how to fix it?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      David,
      There is a timer mechanism or sensor that is part of the ice maker that may be faulty or not connected electrically.
      The timer or “ice level sensor” may be the issue.
      Did you replace with an OEM Whirlpool ice maker?
      Check it out and let us know what you find.

  215. I have a Samsung dishwasher. Model # DMT300RFB. There was a small spoon that fell into the bottom of the unit, so I had to disassemble it to remove. When I disassembled, 2 gaskets fell out. When reassembling, the gaskets were too long to fit back into the grooves. Could they have stretched out? Wanted to make sure that I’m not doing something wrong before I order new gaskets.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Joel,
      If the gaskets are not usable because they are stretched out, replace them with original OEM Samsung Dishwasher gaskets.

  216. I have a GE top loading washer model number GTWN4250DOWS purchased it in 2011 and have had to replace the drum valves water valves for hot water dispenser inside the machine cuz it leaked even after the washer had stopped running.
    It has needed new wheels I guess cuz it has been off balance and the pieces broke 2 different times.
    Now today I washed a load of laundry and it stopped after it half drained out but would not spin out.
    We checked the lid switch and then bypassed it so I could finish laundry until the piece I ordered can be delivered.
    After the 2nd load it did the same thing but this time my clothes had been soaking wet.
    I checked the hose that goes into the white box on left bottom side and took it off and then placed it back on as it was not clogged or dirty.
    When I tried again, the drain and spin was making a noise like it was trying to drain but the agitator was not moving.
    Could it be the timer switch or control panel?
    Or could it be that my washer has a fail safe lock and cuz the lid switch is broke it senses it and will not work to drain and rinse?
    I did buy the extended warranty on this so I had 5 years of warranty but it expired 11/2016 and in September 2016 I had them come out and check it for more issues.
    That’s when they decided to replace the drum and all the pieces that go with it and they replaced the 2nd set of wheels to rebalance it.
    I honestly think I got a lemon when I bought this washer cuz from the 2nd day I had problems and it just has not stopped.

  217. ET22DMW00 Whirlpool refrigerator with freezer on top, refrigerator on bottom. Has working ice maker. Makes ice & both refrigerator & freezer are able to keep cold temp. Problem is that (apparently) randomly the back of the freezer (where the coil is housed) will get a hot spot.in the lower center. If touched at this time it’s so hot, you are unable to continue to hold your hand against the back wall. This will last for no more than 5 minutes at which time there is hot water that drains from behind the back wall of the freezer and into the refrigerator section below through the drain hole. About half a cup of hot water is discharged. Then everything goes back to normal and the heat disappears and the water stops. Then anywhere from 12 hours to 24 hours later it happens again.

  218. I have a GE GSS25LGMB refrigerator with a leaking water tank. Is it possible to bypass the tank? I don’t need cold water, just water to ice maker.

  219. Hi, I own a Whirlpool Cabrio H20 low wash system. Model # is WTW5600 XWO. The washer is 7 years. It has worked perfectly up until a month ago. So my problem is this, using the Normal cycle wash, warm water, high spin speed, He detergent and fabric softner. When washer is on spin cycle then finishes , all green LED are off indicating wash is finish. I open the lid and find my small to medium load still wet.To wet to put in the dryer, so I end up selecting the Drain / Spin cycle and spins out excess water on the clothes.There is no standing water in tub, just excess wet colored clothes.i have replace the drain pump with no change.Other cycle selections Whites , Heavy Duty also doesn’t spin out water leaving clothes wet enough to select Drain / Spin cycle to finish draining. Any helps or suggestions would be greatly appreciated . Thanks Barry

  221. My washer MTW6600TQ0 will not clear the SD error. I have removed tub and cleaned under. I removed the drain cover and cleaned. I checked the discharge hose and it\’s fine. I unplugged machine for 8 hours. I ran a load with no clothes and no soap and still get the SD error. The biggest question is where is the suds sensor?

    I have a Frigidaire freezer model FFU14F5HWG the high temp light is on the compressor won’t kick in I replaced the run capacitor and relay compressor still won’t run do you know what it could be?

  223. I have a Samsung dryer model no. DV409AEW/XAA. I moved to Europe and it is giving me a PF message. Do I need a special 50 hz board? All I can find is part number #DC92-00257A, but no special marking for 50 hz. Is there another part number I can use? Can you point me in the right direction to solve this? Thank you

  224. I’ve got a problem with a Kenmore washing machine model no. 110.26012010. It no longer works in 1/2 of the cycles. For example: select ‘Bulky’ cycle. Press Start. The cycle starts by testing the lid lock, then moves on to ‘sense’ the load to see how much water to use (all normal so far). But when it’s time to start adding water, the machine ‘freezes’ and will overload the breaker unless the power is interrupted. The Power Off button won’t work, it must be unplugged from the wall. This scenario only happens on 1/2 of the cycles – the other cycles work just fine from beginning to end (so far, at least!).

  225. I have a Samsung rsg257aars/xaa fridge. The ice maker dispenser and water dispenser stopped working (but is still being made). Checked codes and got a r-1c code – defrost sensor error. Appliance repair came and replace front panel board, and tried the ice dispenser. A few came out, but when he dumped the ice in the sink and turned around, he started getting a f 1-d code – fan motor part error. So he took that board out and put the old one back in, and got the original r-1-c code again.

      Adam,
      Even though you replaced all the obvious parts to fix the overflowing issue on your Whirlpool washer, you may have a control board issue or an issue with the timer assembly.
      Check all wires and test the wiring with a meter to be sure all parts receive power.

    Does the main power wires connect the overload relay?
    If so which wire to which spade connector… if so does the capacitor connect to the start relay?
    Which wires go on which of the four on the start relay?

  228. I have a GE GDF520PGJ0WW dishwasher that is just over a year old and it quit drying. Of course the settings are good. I’m no expert, but I checked continuity of the heating element, thermostat, and all wiring up to the control board. Not finding any faults, I just replaced the control board, ran a cycle and it is still not heating. What else can I check? Is it possible the heating element is bad even though it has continuity? Help!

  229. I have a Frigidaire Gallery FG102474QF38 dishwasher, the display shows i30 and the drain motor runs continuosly. I tried shutting it off with the breaker to reset it but when i turn it back on the motor continues to run. and am unable to reset with any control panel buttons. Any ideas?

  230. My Whirlpool dishwasher, model GU2300XTVB will not respond to any control functions.
    This model is about 9 yrs old and has a push button electronic touch panel.
    The last cycle was a rinse.
    I believe it worked but now the light is on for washing and there is no response to any buttons.
    There are no flashing lights and I have turned the power off/on with no results.
    The lights are not as bright as they were so the pots/pans might be light?

  231. What kind of screw heads are in a Panasonic microwave oven? Model # NN-SN797S? They look like Trox screw heads but they aren’t. Phillips nor square drives fit either.

  232. I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer Model WRF40 IX and WRF36XR9WG.
    It has an electronic temperature control that displays 1 to 5 as soon as the temp is adjusted higher than three, it clicks on and off.
    It sounds as if it is trying to switch on the compressor.
    If the temp is adjusted to three it works fine.
    I have replaced the control board previously, which solved the problem, previously it worked on level 4, but now it only works on 3.
    It is very costly to replace this board every two years.

  233. I have a Samsung dishwasher Model # DMT400RHS. About a year ago the drain hose had to be replaced. Now a year later, a light was blinking on the HEAVY cycle button which meant a “Leakage error”. I checked the drain hose and it was fine with no leaks but there were some drops of water where the Leak Sensor is located. I took that apart and dried it off, put it back together and the blinking light stopped. I ran a DELICATE cycle and at the end of that cycle the HEAVY light was blinking again. I again took everything apart and there was a little bit of water by the Leak Sensor but this time there was some water on the left side of the tub up under the insulation. I don’t know what else to check without completely disassembling the whole darn thing. All of the hoses appear to be dry and not wet to the touch.

  234. My Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDK01ILBS3 stopped responding to the Start button. I could get it to reset by powering it off and on and pressing Cancel, but that was all. So I replaced the control board. The machine ran one wash to the rinse cycle and stopped, with the Normal cycle light blinking. There’s water in the machine. Pressing Cancel makes both Normal and Cancel lights blink together. Reset by power off has no effect — it runs the motor briefly and goes back to described state. Do I need to replace anything else?

  235. I have a GE dryer all switches check for continuity.
    Limits, thermostat, high temp, centrifugal, idler arm, heating elements, selector switch, timer a to b, and cords good.
    Dryer tumbles but no heat.
    Has anyone seen this before?

  236. I have a Whirlpool duet wed8300sw0 model front load dryer, it stopped heating so I tested every sensor, heating element, thermostat for continuity.
    All have continuity minus the smaller thermostat of the 2 on the side of the heat element.
    I looked on YouTube and a guy said to tap it on the ground to fix it so I did that and now the dryer heats.
    But, the problem is I ran the dryer for 5 min and turned it off and you can open the door and smell the heat and the back of it is really hot.
    Not hot enough to burn you but enough to think something is wrong.
    After I turned power off, I think it is still getting hot even when dryer is powered off, so I got worried an unplugged it.

  237. We have a Frigidaire model FFHB2740PS. First, the water dispenser began shooting out water without having the water dispenser pressed in, the display gave the error SY CS. The compressor was running, the freezer cooling, but no refrigerator or lights in the refrigerator. I pulled the control panel and it had water in it, we learned that the refrigerator had been in a flood. I dried out all of the control panel, after plugging back in the refrigerator display blinks and the refrigerator does not turn back on.

  239. I have an LG TROMM front load washer. I left a small metal tool in my jeans pocket, and it ended up jamming the drum from spinning. By the time I realized what happened, the breaker tripped in my breaker box. I reset the breaker. Now I get no display, no nothing on the washer. I tested the receptacle, and it’s hot. I pulled the top off the washer and tested a few things with my meter. It is getting power to at least the first few “little boxes”. I’m thinking that there must be a way to reset the machine, but see no button or fuse.

  242. I have a Stainless Steel Frigidaire Gallery. The model number is LGUB2642LF . On the display it reads SY CE. I have found that it SY CE means Communications Error at Power up and to check the wiring between the control board and user interface. Unfortunately, I am lost! I am not sure what that means or where those are. If I were to unplug the fridge and plug it back in after a few seconds, would that do the trick? Please, please help!!

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Stephanie Rife,
      Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator with SY CE does mean a Communications Error at Power up.

      You need to check where the wiring harnesses hook into the display board and to the main control board…. The main board is located either in the back of the fridge under a small panel or under the fridge. (main control board location will depend on your exact refrigerator)
      Simply check that the wires are secure and not damaged.
      Check some YouTube videos to be sure exactly where to check if you are still uncertain.

  243. We have a brand new Whirlpool WRS325FDAM refrigerator. It makes a high pitched whine that only my daughter can hear, and it’s driving her nuts. Once when we unplugged it and plugged it back in, I was able to hear it for a moment. Repair came out, couldn’t hear it, couldn’t find anything in the manual about it…and that was that.

  244. I’ve just gained possession of an ADMIRAL (Side by Side (GC2007)) fridge / freezer, not sure about its age , guessing about 12-15 years . Looks great after a good deep clean, the only trouble being it stopped working after 3 hours ! About that time the fuse tripped, I re-set the fuse and the same thing happened again, instantaneously. I left it overnight to ponder. The next morning I plugged it into another (ring-main, not covered by trip devices) socket. So, this is where we are now.. The RHS fridge light comes on, and nothing else ! No freezer, no freezer light, no start up noises.. dead as a dodo. I have no manual and cannot find any information on the web. Could it be ( from your pages) the Compressor Start Relay or start capacitor ( or both !). If they were faulty would they stop the freezer light from coming on.?!

  251. I have a work around to starting my samsung electric dryer. I open door, then press door sensor. Once door sensor is pushed in, I hit the start button and then manually turn the drum inside. The dryer starts and I quickly close door. The dryer completes drying cycle. This is only way for me to start the dryer. If I try starting traditional way, the drum does not turn and dry just makes noise. I have changed most of all thermostats/fuses/drum sensor but it still acts up and only way to start the dryer is by the work around. Dry is less then three years old.

  252. My 2 yr old Frigidaire gallery dishwasher fgid2466qf2a is making a loud clunking or grinding noise but only sometimes during the wash cycle.
    It sounds like something is banging around the inside of the washer but it happens even if I run it on empty.
    I took off the filter, etc inside and did not find any debris.
    I called Frigidaire corp, they seem to think it is the motor.
    Based on the sound, I cannot believe that is the case.

  253. I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator that I just had a freon leak repaired and they charged it up with freon. It ran for 30 hours (making a little more noise then I remember – but no clicking or anything) but both the refrigerator and freezer sections will only cool to about 45 degrees each. I noticed that the sides of the refrigerator are not warm, but cool to the touch – much more than room temperature. Is it possible they didn’t put enough freon in it?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Lou Guerette,
      Most likely, your Maytag Quiet Series 100 Dishwasher is running fine.
      You probably do not have the dishwasher drain hose positioned properly.
      Check under your sink and be sure the Dishwasher water drain hose is secured in an upward position.
      This is so the dishwasher drain water does not backflow or siphon into the dishwasher and leave an inch or so of water.

Managed to get that going again, but the freezer has a wide variation in temp, anywhere from +7F to -10F and is running a long time. The other night it would not shut off on its own, so I wound up shutting it off overnight and it started up and ran good but still with a wide variance of temp.

    Or does pump signal it to drain?
    Would it be my pump or something on control board not triggering draining?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Roger,
      The washer drain line should go from the washer’s tub to the drain pump with nothing in between, however, there MAY be a one way safety valve in between the tub and the drain pump that is stuck closed.
      Check to be sure that the drain line from the tub to the drain pump is free of clogs and water can flow with no issues.
      Check that the drain pump itself is not clogged or blocked.
      If the drain pump is working, the drain line from the tub to the drain pump is CLEAR, then you may have an electrical connection issue or possibly the control board is faulty.

      You may have a loose wire harness which is causing the lights in your LG refrigerator to work intermittently. Check all wiring harnesses that run from the lighting to the rear of the fridge. You will likely find a loose connection or a possible damaged wire harness.

  276. LG Refrigerator LFX25960SB when replugging in our French-door, bottom freezer – the ice dispenser “flap” started opening and closing on it’s own about every 4 seconds. It’s an annoying “bang”. Additionally, the lights on the front face of the the ice maker are blinking. Both the refrigerator and the freezer are not staying cold. Have had to remove all food.

  280. I have a problem with my GE washing machine. When I start it the washing cycle works fine and all but when it gets to the Rinse and Spin cycle it only fills up and drains but it doesn’t spin/agitate. The timer keeps going and at the end the clothes are left drenched. What could be wrong with my washer? I appreciate any knowledge on this. Thank you!

      Dulce,
      Depending on the model number of your GE washer, you could have a faulty lid switch, bad belt, faulty washer clutch, worn motor coupler, or transmission issue.
      You will have to take the GE washer apart and see for yourself what is causing the problem.
      Can you give us the model number so we can give you a more precise solution?

  281. Started dryer, it ran for a minute while I started a load in the washer. Then the dryer turned off and wouldnt start again. I checked the house circuit breaker and it was fine, so I fiddled with the knob then we left it alone. Then awhile later it started on its own but it won’t count down on the dial so it won’t turn itself off. After reading different posts I’m not sure what it could be, maybe the thermal fuse or the thermistor, or maybe the timer? I don’t think it is the heating element because it happened when the dryer started not mid cycle, and it does heat when it runs.

  282. My Frigidaire model FFHB2740ps1 stopped making ice and dispensing water. Then 3 weeks later the refrigerator and freezer stopped cooling. Error code SY EF was displayed. The repairman said I needed a new motherboard and door computer because the old computer would not interface with the new motherboard. After paying for it. He said he now needed to order an Evaporation Fan. Needless to say I didn’t let him return. Called another repair guy who changed the fan. The refrig was back working (except for the ice maker due to additional cost). Now 2 weeks later my refrigerator is not working again! I was trying to push the ice drawer back in when the frig light went off and stopped working. The frigidaire is only 2 years old. The new error code is SY CF. Do you know what may be going on.

  283. Recently my GE side by side Refrigerator stopped working. Model #GSH25JFXB CC. The freezer and the refrigerator are not cooling and ice not dispensing. The fan in the inside of the freezer and the fan on the back of the refrigerator are running continuously. The compressor is not running, neither is it cold or hot. I have pulled off both panels off the back one for the mother board and nothing out of the ordinary but removed the bottom board and cleaned out all the dust from over the year and nothing has changed.

    1. I had a appliance repair person come out to the house and he didn’t do much of a test but he explained to me that it actually can be a Freon leak or a defroster issue. The fans were still running and the compressor was on and running. He said that if it is Freon leak it would be best to purchase a new refrigerator and if it was a defroster issue it might be worth fixing. I have read a lot of issues but not one like this. He recommended me to unplug for 24 hours and then plug back in for 8-10 hours and if it gets cold then it would be a defroster issue. Any ideas of this being true. Please let me know. Thank you

  293. I’m a repair technician working on an AMANA Washer Model #NFW5700BW0. There are no lights on the console (outer touch panel). I can trace 120V to the control board. The single, 3-wire connector from the control board to the touch panel console shows only 1V DC at each of the 3 testing combinations. I believe that there should be at least 12V DC being delivered and suspect that it is a control board failure to send power to the console rather than a console failure.

  299. My LG LFC25770TT is making a constant beeping noise and now it has stopped cooling. I had a repair man out today who said the fan needed repaired and charged me $350. He said the fridge should start cooling. It didn’t, no change. What should I do (besides demanding my money back)?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Lori,
      The Door Alarm is a “feature” of the fridge that detects when the door is left open for a long period of time. After one minute with the door open, the alarm will beep. Every 30 seconds thereafter, it will continue to beep until the door is closed.

      If your LG fridge constantly beeps, here is a way to stop it…
      -Locate the “Alarm/Lock” button on the right side of the control panel.
      -Press the “Alarm/Lock” button on the control panel one time to turn off the door alarm beep.

      Try this and your fridge may start cooling again…. Let us know what you find.

If this is a pcb issue can I diagnose and fix without replacing? The fan runs for 10 seconds then off for 10, on again then off for quite a while. The fridge is well below temp at this point so I don’t see why it would shut off.

  303. Frigidare refrigerator freezer combo unit model # FRT15G4B

    My Frigidare freezer temperature control knob is broken and just spins completely around without stopping. The freezer is on a very cold setting, maybe even on the coldest setting, and frost forms in the freezer compartment to the extent the fan stops working to cool the refrigerator. In the past I was able to unplug the unit and let it “defrost” then plug it back in and it ran fine. But, now that the freezer temperature can’t be set, as previously described, the refrigerator is too warm and food cannot remain cold.

    Is there a way a lay person like me can address a problem like this? I have zero skill at repair and I do not want to pay a repair person more than what a new refrigerator would cost to fix this one.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Henry,
      You may just need a new knob as the one you have may be cracked and not TURNING the temp control.
      Can you freely remove the knob?
      If so order a new one.
      If not the temp control assy may be bad and needs to be fully replaced or checked for wiring issues.

  304. I have a whirlpool top load washing machine that has recently been moved and plugged in at our new place that we moved to and the POWER button will not push in to start the machine. Everything else works fine, the other buttons push and click the way they always have. The button went from being soft and working to feeling hard behind it and not turning on the machine.

  305. Kenmore coldspot side-by-side refrigerator m#106.56982601.a few months ago the freezer started to frost over inside& the refrigerator wouldnt cool properly. several times now we’ve had to unplug it,thaw it,plus use a hair dryer on the inside refrigerator exhaust vent to melt ice buildup(always there whenever the problem starts)also occasionally having to hit the bottom part of the freezer with it at the water drain. it will end up with a large chunk of ice that extends into the bottom of the freezer itself. Since the first time this happened aside from the ice buildup in the freezer it mainly seems to be a problem with the refrigerator and it only seems to adequately cool for a couple of days after at best then slowly starts warming up again. After the thaw and restart process it’ll be 38- 40°F at best then after a few days/week its 45-50°F then onto about 55-60°F by the time the process needs to be redone. Also since this 1st happened we HAVE to keep the refrigerator temp switch on the coldest position of 4 just to get it to the temps described when in the past it never had to be past 2 or 3. Also Now regardless of the temp setting, the airflow coming into the refrigerator is so weak. THEN today we woke up to the freezer not being cold enough & things were starting to thaw.

  307. We have a Bravos X washer about 3 years old that intermittently started not to spin dry the washed clothes near the end of the cycle about ten days ago…then it quit spin drying the clothes altogether a few days later. It still agitates, but gets stuck working at about the 12 number on the machine display. I went through the diagnostic codes and got the following four sequences: F7-E5, F7-E6, F-0, F-0. Looking at the Service Tech handbook that came with the washer, the F7-E5 says “shift actuator fault”. The F7-E6 says “motor fault”. Talking with the local appliance store tech where we bought it, he felt it’s likely the actuator, so I put the new one in yesterday, but no change. After the 12 appears on the display, it will eventually cycle off. Do notice it spinning one revolution or so around 11, then it try’s to spin again around the 8, 6, and 4 (assume this is the minutes remaining) but all you hear is the humming sound of the motor but no spinning. The whole cycle of the machine seems slower from the time it starts to the time it would normally finish. Will try the “master reset” suggested on your site in case the washer was overloaded or we had a power surge, etc. Will let you know what that does later today. Our washer is model # MVWX700X62, Ser # C31130400. If the reset doesn’t work, I may look at the continuity of the washer lid switch to see what that shows.

  308. My Whirlpool cabrio h/e low h2o top loader washer model no. Wtw5600xw3 was diagnosed with a bad / faulty electronic board by a Sears repair tech. Last Wednesday 6/29/16.

I have more than 3 screws to get the back panel off!

  309. My Kenmore upright freezer is on the fritz. (Model # 253.9287413) It runs constantly. I found out that the temp control unit (Part #216521200) was discontinued and you cannot get it anywhere. Also, there isn’t a replacement part for it. So, I ordered a different part that I thought may work. It did not. The freezer keeps running. My next move may be an external universal temp control unit. A Supco SC1002.

    My real problem is this: The freezer has three (3) wires going to the temp control unit. A black, red and blue. All new temp control units have two wires, including the Supco part I may use. Which wires do I splice together???? The black wire is power from the plug. The red wire runs to the control box and the blue wire goes to the defrost timer. Currently, I have the black and blue wire connected and it runs, but doesn’t shut off. A black and red combo doesn’t run. Again, what wires would I put together to make this work?

  310. Bosch Vision 300/500 DLX. The drum doesn’t want to turn anymore. When we start a normal cycle, the water gets in, the pumps is working fine but nothing is turning in there. The door isn’t leaking. I took off the motor in order to have a look to the carbon brushes… but apparently, there is any on that type of motor since it is a brushless technology? So what do I do, should I order à new motor at this point? Is that problem common for that model of washing machine? Could it be the little plastic sensor attached to the rotor who could be at fault?

      Make sure the lid switch is positioned correctly.
      Many times on a Kenmore washer, if the lid switch is working but out of position, the lid lock light will flash or blink.
      Be sure the lid switch and the plunger are making perfect contact.
      If so, recheck the wires going to and from the lid switch.

      Erin,
      There is no error code showing or is the display completely dead?
      If your Bosch refrigerator is working and cooling/freezing, but the display and the ice water dispenser do not work, then there is either a wiring issue, a bad dispenser board, or a relay may be faulty.
      You will need to do some troubleshooting.

      Hopefully it is a simple loose or disconnected wire harness that you can just plug back in.
      Remember to unplug the fridge when working with the electrical systems on your fridge – Work safe.

  313. Hi, I am trying to replace the Start Relay & Overload Protector on my Brada Freezer (Model HS-189C), and cannot find my picture of the original wiring. I have searched & searched, but cannot find any diagrams for it at all. The replacement Start Relay is actually a Danby part (DUFM320 PTC – Part # 501499900239), as is the Overload Protector (DUFM320 O/L PROTECTOR – Part # 501499900271) .

      Finding the manual online for your Brada Freezer is difficult as the Brada website has no tech manuals.
      We do not have an electrical schematic for the Brada or Danby Freezers.

      You have the overload protector and the start relay but you do not know which wires go where… correct?
      You have a capacitor with a brown and blue wire coming out…. and a blue and white wire for the overload protector…
      How many electrical connection terminals are on the 2 parts?
      One terminal for each wire but you just do not know which wire goes where?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Quaneitha,
      Most likely your Kenmore washer has a CLOGGED WATER PRESSURE SWITCH.
      Remove power from the washer and check to be sure it is not clogged and causing your NO FILL issue.

      The water pressure switch should be located behind the main panel and to the right.

      With power unplugged, remove a few screws from the panel…
      When you remove the panel, the pressure switch will have a small plastic tube attached to it and this will usually get clogged and cause your washer to not fill.
      Clean out the tube and the switch itself and you should be good to go.

      An appliance solenoid should show SOME resistance and continuity should be good.

The water accumulates overtime and drips down to the floor. I also noted that the compressor runs for 2 hours and stops.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Win Naing,
      If water drips at back, your Beko refrigerator may have ice build up on the coils and at times water is dripping off of them.
      Or the water line to the fridge or on the fridge is leaking, or you may have a clogged drain hole (if applicable), etc…
      Unplug fridge and slide out to check where the leak is coming from.

  319. I have a Samsung dishwasher, model DW80F600UTS/AA-0001. I replaced the motor recently which was running loud for a while before it finally quit. Took the old motor out and saw that it was rusty and wet from the seal leaking, so I replaced both the motor and seal.

    But then a new problem became apparent, the motor won’t run for more than 30 minutes before stopping and needing to cool down. I tested the resistance when the motor stops of the wire harness that plugs into the main control board which leads to the motor, and it is infinite resistance until about 10 minutes later when it’s cool enough to run again. I got a second motor and it does exactly the same thing. I replaced the control board and it still does the same thing. The capacitor for the motor was also replaced but no luck. So I’m thinking something shorted in the old motor and took some other part out but I can’t find which part to try and replace next.

    To clarify the problem, the motor just stops, and I can cancel the cycle, power off and on, flip circuit breaker, and then restart a new cycle and the motor will still not run until it’s cool after about 10 minutes. The clicking relay switches are heard when the motor is supposed to start but the motor makes no noise, no hum or anything. And the drain still works fine. And when the motor stops, and if I i just leave it, the timer continues to go and if it was within 10 minutes of the end of that cycle, it will just drain like normal, start the next cycle, the motor will click but not start, and after 10 minutes total have passed the motor suddenly revs up again with no clicks to start it.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Rachel,
      It sounds like the motor you installed on your Samsung Dishwasher may not be the EXACT OEM motor.
      If you happened to install a dishwasher motor that is for a different dishwasher model, it may fit, but may not be able to run as designed.
      It has a thermal cutoff that when it gets too hot, it will shut down to protect itself.

      Most likely your Whirlpool dishwasher rinse aid dispenser is clogged. You can take it apart with the dishwasher removed from power to unclog it.
      If the dispenser is not clogged, you can check it with your meter to be sure it is working.

  321. I removed the spray arm at the bottom of my KitchenAid dishwasher, Model number KUDN(M?)230. It is very old, circa 1996, and I can’t find info on it anywhere, so I hope you can help, as this thing is starting to smell with the stagnant water sitting at the bottom. – When I removed the spray arm there was nothing to screw off, so naturally, I tugged it off. It really wasn’t that hard to lift up. On inspection, there are no threads anywhere on the underside of it, so I think this was actually okay. But now I cannot get this thing to “snap” back on.

  323. I have a problem with a GE Washing machine (clothes). I do not know the model number. It is a newer washer that says “Smart Clean.” It is a top loader and I don’t believe it is high efficiency. Recently, it stopped draining. It can fill properly, wash properly, but during the drain cycle it does nothing but hum. Unfortunately, this model does not have a removable front panel to service it. However, I was able to access the pump motor by lifting up one side and tilting it. So, I have removed the motor and cleaned it. There was a tiny bit of dirt, but nothing major. It looked fine. I wanted to have it tested, so I brought it to a local repair shop (I live in Nicaragua). He took what looked like a lamp cord with spliced wires on the end of it. He touched the wires to the two wires connect and it did spin, though it almost looked like it went back and forth. This could have been due to the high speed. Anyways, it did turn, so I assume it either works fine or possibly is running at a lower power. So, I discovered the most interesting thing today. When the washer is trying to drain, there is some vibration and sound from the pump. Nothing that sounds bad, but there is no water being drained. If I blow through the drain hose, I hear some bubbles, and there is a change in the pump and it begins shooting water out everywhere… just like it should. But if I pause it and unpause it, it goes back to doing nothing. If I blow it it, it runs correctly again. It seems that the pump works fine then. Do you know what could be causing this problem? I feel like if I can understand exactly what happens when I blow in the hose and it starts working, then I will understand precisely what the problem is. Is there any chance that there is some sort of “door” that is supposed to open and let the water out during the drain cycle? Or is it possible that the pump does not work well enough to start the process, but can continue it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Jeremy,
      If you have a GE washer but do not know the model number, we would have to guess….
      Check the water pressure switch for a clogged tube. also check the drain pump as if something is clogged in it or in a drain hose the washer will not drain.
      Try and find the model number so we can help you further.

  324. Have a Maytag Maxima MED6000XW2, Cleaned duct work and replace thermal fuse 3 times before i noticed that the thermistor (thermostat) had also gone bad. The dryer would get really hot that is why we replaced the thermistor. Replaced both thermal fuse and thermistor and worked for about a month. Now i am back where i started, why does the thermal fuse keep going out? Everything is clean good air flow, even had pro clean duct and said it was super clean and had great air flow.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Pedro,
      When the thermal fuse on your dryer keeps blowing, you have heat buildup somewhere and that usually means the air vent hose, in wall vent, outside vent is clogged.
      Some models of dryers have a fan built in. If you have one, be sure it works. Also, you could have wires shorting out somewhere and causing your issues.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Randall Griswold,
      When you removed power from your LG refrigerator to replace the evap fan, you most likely reset the display panel back to default. You are referring to POWER SAVING MODE.

      Display Power Saving Mode
      This function places the display into power saving mode until the next time the door is opened.
      Press the FREEZER and ICE PLUS buttons simultaneously and hold them for 5 seconds until the Ding sounds.
      All LEDs will then turn ON, then OFF.
      When the power saving mode is activated, the display will remain off until the next time the door is opened.

A new motor was purchased and fitted however now the machine runs through its program but the motor dose not run. Could it be the main board was damaged by the burnt connection?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      John Gibb,
      It may be that the new Beko washer motor is wired incorrectly or the wiring is bad possibly from when the motor get hot enough to melt the plastic shield. Recheck the wiring and wire harnesses to be sure all is secure and no other damage is present. We do not think the motor burning up could have an affect on the main control board. It may be some of the wiring to and from the motor to the main control board that is burnt or loose.

      ERROR = High current on motor phase

      ACTION = Unplug the washer and remove the drive belt.
      Spin the motor pulley.
      If it doesn’t spin freely, replace the drive motor.
      If the motor spins freely, rotate the large drive pulley on the back of the washer tub to check the spin bearing.
      If the pulley doesn’t spin freely, the outer tub and spin basket usually need to be replaced because a spin bearing failed.
      If the spin bearing is sound, check the resistance of the motor windings for a reading between 4 and 6 ohms.
      If the motor has failed, replace it. If the motor is sound, the speed control board usually needs to be replaced.

  344. Samsung Smart TV
    Model code UN32F5500AFXZA

    TV has sound but no picture. A very dimly lit picture blinks in and out every 7 seconds, then blinks back to black. Before it went out completely, it would occasionally blink off completely, and then come back on.

    When viewing the tv from the back, there’s a faint light that blinks on when the picture blinks on showing through the vents. The light appears at the upper left and the right corners of the back of the tv vents. But back lights in general are not working.

    There’s blue light activity at the bottom, showing through the vents.

    Everything else works – sound, able to change channels, just no picture or rather no picture that stays on the screen.

    Approximately how much would it cost to repair this tv by a professional? Or is it possible to find a replacement part for the defective part and install myself? Thank you!

From the water dispenser end, the wire only goes about 1” or so and stops. I know there is a solenoid that operates the ice dispenser flap. Does this also control the water dispenser in anyway?

      If ice was jammed in the ice maker and you cleaned it out, give it some time to make the ice. Be sure the temp is cold enough to make ice in the freezer.

Fingers are still in the 10:00 or so position if looking straight on the freezer compartment.

  356. Hi again,
    I wanted to follow up regarding my top loader GE GTWN4250M1WS. I have not bought the ohm meter yet but did check for loose/burnt wires (none).
    Last night even the rinse and spin cycle which was working fine is now very difficult to activate, requiring me to play with the exact placement of the dial to get it to go on.
    I also realized that it will only do the wash cycle (on wash settings) but not even rinse much less spin. It will rinse if I can get the dial just right on the rinse/spin only setting – so I do get cold water in for rinsing and a very strong spin on that select setting with difficulty.
    Does this still sound like the timer control panel to you? I have one on order now and will pick up ohm meter to test today. Could it be the lid switch? I’m thinking not because it does spin sometimes.
    Thank you again for your much needed help!

      If your GE washer is working properly on certain wash cycles but not others, usually that is the indication you have a bad timer control assembly. You should first remove power and open up the panel to check and see if you have a loose wire, burnt wire, or damaged timer assembly. You can also test the timer with a meter to be sure that is the bad part before ordering a new one.

      Fred Jean,
      First, make sure you have the correct part. If you do and the prongs are difficult to get into the door to secure it, use a hair dryer and heat up the plastic prongs. Then with gloves on (without burning yourself) push the prongs so they fit into the fridge door. This method will work if the prongs are a little off. Sometimes parts are made tight so they fit in snug and will not loosen and fall out. Let us know if you get it to fit into the door correctly. Is this the part LG Refrigerator Door Shelf you are installing?

We drained it then unplugged it then open the door 6 times and that did not reset it. What can it be? Will it be expansive to fix? Thank you for your time.

      Mari Hewitt,
      If your Kenmore washer front load fills with water but does not spin, it may be a control board issue, a loose wire harness issue, a blocked drain issue, or other. Does your washer have the drain filter in front? If so clean it out and restart a load to see if that was the issue. Can you supply us with the model number so we can further assist?

      John,
      Replace the t-con board and that should MOST LIKELY be your issue. What is the model number of your Sharp TV?

  368. My washer runs through all the cycles but will final spin until you go in and shut it off. I put a load in last night before I went to bed and when I got up this morning it was still spinning. Clothes were almost dry. I have a Whirlpool top loader model GSQ9633LL0. I just don’t want to pay for a timer switch if there is any other possible culprit.

      David Welch,
      If the washer does not shut off… it is most likely an electrical part that is faulty by being always “closed” and constantly supplying power to the motor. Most likely you do have something wrong with the timer assembly. If you have a multi-meter you can test it to be sure.

  369. Own a 3 year old Frigidaire Professional dishwasher. Not a problem yet, but trying to figure out the closing mechanism on the door. It appears to be magnets on each side of the door, because I can’t find any other way. At any rate, the 2 sides do not close with equal holding power. One side is significantly better. First, is it magnets? Even though it’s not a problem yet, I’d like to know if I can fix it. Thanks.

      Can you give us the exact model number of your Frigidaire Professional dishwasher, and we can let you know exactly.

          1. I don’t think so. When I pull the handle from the left side with “medium force” (not enough to open the door) it doesn’t move, but when I apply an equal pull from the right side of the handle, I can get separation between the dishwasher and the door (I’m talking only like 1/4 inch). There is definitely some kind of “catch” mechanism that’s not as strong. It’s definitely at the top of the machine. I’m 99% sure it’s not a spring problem.

            1. Thanks for your help, but I figured it out. The top of the door on the left side rubs against the underside of the counter top, making it appear to close tighter. If I lowered the left side of the dishwasher a fraction of an inch, both sides would be the same.

  370. I have tested everything on a Kenmore 110-74l 812200 Gas dryer all continuity checks out. We cleaned out all the exhaust vents and removed dirt debris near the blower. All other exhaust is fine.

    Tested continuity on all parts and they check out” cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat, low limit thermostat, thermal fuse, solenoid/coils, igniter and the radiant flame sensor.

    It seems to ignite gas once then not a second time. Sometimes it is cycling 2-3 times. With the drum and front panel off we seem to get about 3-4 flame cycles then it stops.

    What is the best bet on what is wrong. all items seem to working.

      Thomas,
      You could try and replace the gas coils. Possibly one of them is heating up and then wires open = no constant flame

      Charles Land,
      Samsung dishwasher “lights for Smart Auto and Heavy are flashing” means error code “over fill”. The wash cycle doesn’t start in time and water reaches the over fill sensor. Replace the ECS sensor.

  373. I have replaced the fan motor on my Daewoo freezer (Model No FRSU20DCB). The reason for this was that the ice-maker stopped producing ice, I noticed that the fan wasn’t working. The ice-maker is now producing ice, but it will not dispense from the front, all I get is a noise, which sounds like it’s trying to dispense the ice.

  374. Hi! I have a Samsung Top Load washing machine, model WA5471ABW/XAA. I recently got an error code tE1 at the end of washing a load. I shut the machine off and went to start another load and the error code still exists. I did some research and replaced the thermistor. We turned the machine back on, and the tE1 error code is still there. I read to run the “board input test.” I did this, but I’m unsure of what the numbers mean that I see. I understand that it says the door is unlocked and closed, which is correct. But then it shows the numbers 2617, d115, and 523 as I turn the dial. I’m at a loss of what I should do next? Should I replace the PCB? I don’t see any frayed wires and the washer is 4 years old. Thanks for any help!

      If you have already replaced the thermistor or temp sensor… That sounds more like a wiring issue. Check all the wire connections. Let us know what you find.

  375. My Cabrio washer won’t run. I tried to reset it like in the video but it doesn’t work. While the machine is off I turn it one click to the right. This lights up the panel for that cycle (quick wash) . When I hit start the motor sounds like it wants to start then it just makes a humming noise. When I shut machine off it still hums. Only stops when it’s unplugged. Model number wtw5600xw0

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Jack Delisle,
      If the washer is constantly humming, there may be a STUCK CLOSED electrical part that is supplying constant power to the motor or other component. Is the humming coming from the control panel or in the washer like the motor or similar? Does the hum sound like an electrical buzz or like the motor is trying to turn? Any strange smells like electrical smell or rubber burning? Here is the PARTS MANUAL FOR THE WHIRLPOOL WTW5600XW0. Check the parts diagram and this may assist you with locating the problem. Let us know what you find.

      1. Thanks, the humming is coming from the motor area. It first sounds like it’s trying to start,and then the humming.. I will check the parts manual

      The controls are in a lock mode. When the controls are in the lock mode any button pushed will cause the 3 beeps.
      To unlock the controls. Push and hold the Options and Select buttons at the same time and hold them down until the lock led light above the Pause/Cancel button goes off. Push pause cancel twice to clear previous options.

  377. I have a GE Refrigerator Model GSS25JFMBWW. The Fridge and Freezer are both warm. Neither the condenser fan nor the evaporator fan are working. The lights are on so I know it has power. Would a bad capacitor or ptcr cause the fans to stop working? Or is this most likely a board issue?

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Scott Cody,
      If both fans are not working, does the compressor kick on? A bad board or wire harness to the board could be the cause. You will need to troubleshoot further. Let us know what you find.

      Ayra,
      Many faults are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water. If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower kick panel and held in by a round cover. REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A BUCKET AND RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH WILL POUR OUT!

  382. Maytag Bravos Washer, model MVWB300WQ2.
    The washing machine initially dampens the load but then when it calls for water to fill the tub to do the washing, it makes the sound like it is calling for water, but nothing comes. I first noticed the problem when I paused the cycle after about 15 minutes to check for load balance. The towels were mostly dry. At that point we checked the water intake filters and cleaned them but it didn’t make any difference. We also tried using different temperatures, but that didn’t do anything either. After checking the intake screens, we let the cycle continue and it finally wet the clothes about 2/3 of the way through but not to correctly wash and rinse. I was doing an average load of bath, hand, and kitchen towels.

      L Mortimer,
      If the water line hoses are not kinked, the water valves are fully open, the water inlet valve on the washer itself is in working order and not clogged, then it may be the control board that is faulty and not “telling” the water inlet valve to open and dispense water. Have you tried resetting the washer? Unplugging and replugging into power to see if it may reset the issue? If not check the wire harnesses in the washer to be sure they are not loose. If everything is okay, you may have a control board issue.

      Samsung 3E error code is a drive motor tach fault. To remedy this error code, check all connections on the motor, check all wire harnesses to be sure they are secrue. Lastly, check the hall sensor as this is what monitors the tub. Let us know what you find.

  384. My question is about a Kenmore 70 series clothing dryer.

    We recently discovered that our clothes dryer outlet/plug were corroding (visibly and had an odd odor). We replaced, and at the same time we cleaned out the back of the dryer and the large lint drum (not sure the correct name). After putting back together and running the dryer was working just fine (although making an occasional squeaking noise, which it did before the repairs).

    Well just a day later, after trying to dry two loads of laundry, the dryer stopped on the second load. It seems to have overheated. Hours later, I was able to get the dryer going again, until about 20 minutes later it stopped again (again, seems overheated).

    Any ideas on the issue? Did we break or hurt something in the cleaning process that would have caused this?

    Thanks for any help!

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Melissa,
      You most likely have a lint build up in an area you did not check. Possibly inside the dryer itself. If the dryer needs time to cool down before it runs again, you either have a large lint blockage somewhere or possibly a bad thermal fuse or other component. Check inside the dryer and the vent hose and wall to be sure there is no lint blockage. When the dryer is running, does it take forever to dry your clothes?

  385. My top freezer in my refrigerator is not freezing like it should. Some of the items in the freezer are frozen, but others are not. The refrigerator on the bottom is working fine. It’s a GE from 1991 and I don’t see any leaks anywhere. We put a thermometer in there and it says it’s about 30 degrees inside the freezer.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Amy,
      Can you give us the model number of your GE fridge?
      If the freezer is not cooling very well, you may have too many items in the freezer therefore the cold air cannot circulate properly.
      You could have a bad fan, compressor issue, or a thermostat issue.
      It is possible the compressor is bad as a compressor running since 1991 may be on the fritz or have low r-134 refrigerant. It could be a number of things since the fridge is very old.
