Dishwasher Repair / Re: Samsung DW80F600 delicate light blinking - drain error
« Last post by Snave on May 03, 2016, 02:48:52 PM »

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

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.

Washer Repair / Speed Queen coin operated washer
« Last post by Thorning on May 03, 2016, 08:19:52 AM »
I just came into possession of a very good condition Speed Queen coin operated washer under model number EA2221WA with s/n 9508051531. This unit had no keys for the access cover on the top of the control and coin box area. I had a leftover key from another unit from several years back for the top access cover . I am trying to get this unit up and running w/o coins or to open the coin box. So far the Speed Queen folks told me that keys for the coin box are very restricted and I will need to supply the code for the coin box which is usually inside the box itself. As an alternative I looked on a web site which describes drilling out the key arrangement which looks to be very destructive and I don't like this approach. The other alternative that I found was to use a momentary switch in the wiring which would start the timer to cycle. Does anyone have some suggestions or opinions on either of these approaches ? This unit appear to be a very good washer and although I paid only a few dollars for it I don't want to scrap it. Need help in sourcing parts info also . 
you don't need to wait. You could have jumped it out to cycle and fill it.
What do you mean you hope you get paid. You did the work and didn't collect payment?

Thanks for all your help with this icemaker.  I installed a new icemaker but could not tell if it was working since it had to get cold before it would run a cycle.  I have not heard back from the customer yet so I can assume it is working ok.  I took the old icemaker with me and took it apart later at home and found the connections on the front module were burned up.  I think we are good to go, now if I only get paid for the job!!!  Thanks again everyone!

I believe that models console is covered on a special warranty .Authorised whirlpool tech needs to come out phone the tech line and he will be given an "S" # .Covers parts only . The issue is degradation of the ribbon connector going from the console to the control board .I,ve changed at least 20 of these , some twice .
Washer Repair / Re: Whirlpool CAE2743BQ No Functions No Lights (coin-op)

I think i see why you can't see that link it might of been posted in link that can be only seen by tech.But basically says do this
Per Whirlpool Tech Line A call i had months ago.Voltage to
the washer was lost for whatever reason.when power is re-applied
the Drain pump will run for 6-9 minutes. If washer is unplugged and plugged
back in again the Pump will start over again and run for 6-9 minutes again.
Solution is to let the Pump run until it shuts off on its own.        I could not see it either until i log on.  and this is information from another Tech.
