Washer Repair / Re: DANBY mod# dwm5500w-1

I know this is an old topic but has anyone ever found a service manual for this washer. The first one I've seen. No power to the hot water valve. Is it right that the cold water valve would be getting 260 volts?

That was just a joke.  They are very good customers that I have serviced over the years and this call was for his mothers refrigerator.  I am sure that they will send me a check very soon.

My old employer from 15 years ago would say they were moving towards planned obsolescence.

Usually tell most folks 12 yrs on most appliances, sometimes your on the high side, sometimes your on the low side of the average. I do agree that  washers are under 10 years now, seems more like 6 years on newer design washers before tub seal, bearings, trans, or clutch are blown.

I'm so tired of having to do this every 4 months on my 2 year old dishwasher. I spent 1.5 hours on the phone arguing with Samsung about this issue and my equally crappy Samsung french door fridge. They finally agreed to send someone out for no charge.  I'll post what the tech decides to do. They have already replaced this sensor once so I'm not settling for that this time!

Washer Repair / Re: Speed Queen coin operated washer
« Last post by Thorning on May 03, 2016, 01:08:34 PM »
For the benefit of others working on this type of machine I was able to add a momentary on type switch in the wiring and it does work to start the cycle. The switch was added to the circuit between the pink/blue  wire at connector plug number 2  and the white/blue wire at plug number 1. This works to connect the timer motor (TM)and LS wires. Clamp type splice devices were used so the wires did not need to be cut. The wiring diagram found in the back of the panel is listed as p/n 37566. I would still like to get a key for the coin box to operate it that way and if anyone has a key that is compatible with this type of coin operated I would like to discuss it with you.

I don't know about anyone else, but seems like I see a lot of washers not making it to ten years.
