Washer Repair / Re: Whirlpool Cabrio Mod wtww5640xw0 Motor won't start
« Last post by rockinrobin on September 19, 2014, 08:30:57 PM »
No joy, new capacitor didn't fix it. Tub rotates freely. It acts as if the motor is trying to start, but just sits there and hums. I did notice that the LED on the back of the controller board goes out when it tries to start. Front panel stays illuminated and displays work, but hitting the power button does not stop power from flowing to the motor and it will continue to hum until I unplug it.

Motor looks OK, windings are not discolored, turns freely.

Error code still reads F1 E2.

So bad motor controller??
I assume the Basket rotated freely both direction's with the Drive Belt installed.
Be sure the White Plastic Lever on the Mode Shift Actuator is inserted into the center of the Splutch Cam Ring (white round plastic piece).
Run the Calibration Mode (see Tech Sheet under Diagnostic Test Modes), afterwards run the Drain/Spin Cycle to see if it will work properly.
If it doesn't resolve your issue then go through all tests on #3b: Drive System - Motor.
Problem could be the Wire Harness, Drive Motor (has a Start & Run switch built in) or Main Control Board or possibly the Mode Shifter Actuator (check for Continuity/Ohm's)

Not at all.

Consider it useful/relevant information

For example...

After each Training Seminar (regardless of manufacturer)---I always make a point to thank the Training Instructor for educating us techs on the latest/greatest technology---and solutions to problems.

Ask me technical questions---on brands that I do *not* have formal training or experience with---brick wall:)

So did a little more testing of the compressor. I got 11.7, 6.9, and 4.7 on the windings. It's only drawing 0.2 amps.
Anything else I should check before concluding bad compressor?

I'm not getting a new refrigerator. My unemployment and wife's disability doesn't leave room in the budget for that. Besides this one has new main board and thermistors. If I have the compressor changed out, I'd change out the relay and capacitor at the same time. Heck, I might even change out the evaporator fan, thermistor, and defrost thermostat. At that point, I would have changed out most of what seems to go bad in these units and I should get several more years out of it at less than the cost of a new unit. Besides, I've got all matching appliances, and I couldn't afford a new/used matching fridge now, and wouldn't want them mix matched. If this is what needs to be done, I'd probably score the replacement compressor for as cheap as possible and then have someone local come out and just do the service and provide the freon.

I first want to make sure this is whats going on. Is there anything else that should be checked? Is there a way to definitely confirm that the compressor is bad?

Dryer Repair / Re: Amana ngd7200TW poor heat, constant burner cycling

Rockinrobin,

Got it working - at least for now.

I pulled the gas valve off.  There were no obvious obstructions, but pulled orifice and blew it out as well as the old TV fix - a few raps with a small hammer.  Put the valve back in and everything works fine.  I now have a good consistent large blue flame.  The flame stays lit until the dryer heats up thoroughly.

I now know the problem is related to the gas valve.  If it acts up again, I will replace it.

At least I now have a thorough understanding of how another appliance works.

Thanks for all the help - I appreciate it!

Yeah those louvered vents are something to kept a eye on, that could be your problem.

Thanks for the links. Based on the video, I took off the back, top and front panels, as well as the lint filter housing, and gave everything a good clean. It really didn't look too bad -- maybe 1/8" to 1/4" lint on some surfaces. However, the louvered heat exhaust port on the house's exterior wall wasn't as clean as I thought it was, and the corrugated gas supply hose looked pretty kinked. Anyway, got it back together, so we'll see how it does on the next load. Appreciate the help.

These bearings are solid, and had grease on them from the factory. I thought all solid bearings used grease? Are you familiar with this model?
I'm familiar with this model but I never replaced the bearings on this particular model (if bearings need grease then I would use High Temperature Grease).

Are you getting an Error Code on the Display?
View the Service/Repair Manual (link below) to assist with troubleshooting and disassembly instruction's (see page 28 for spin problem)
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzIiBNwRIV4NcHBMTzB1V1ptN0U/edit

NOTE: If the issue is the Stator or Rotor (look for cracks on both) then contact LG since they offer a 10-Year Warranty on those parts (including the Basket or Tub).
