Washer Repair / Re: Kenmore 796.40272900 "de" door Error
« Last post by Appliance Savers on August 29, 2015, 10:57:55 AM »
I've seen this once before on an LG frontloader with the same doorswitch. I determined that the door was not aligned properly because it would not shut all the way if you just let it go. It would stop about 2 inches away from closing, then you would have to push it closed. I had to make an adjustment to the door latch because my client didn't want to buy the whole the door. I'll tell you what I did. So, on the door itself, you see the door hook. It is springloaded. When you close the door, that hook pushes against a slider/actuator on the door latch which tells the control board the door is locked. Over time the door alignment loses integrity. It may catch onto the latch just fine and appear to be closed and ready to wash, but the actuator never slides over all the way. The actuator has a tab that is pushed against when the door closes and the doorhook springs forward to slide it all the way over. I just bent that tab out so that the springloaded doorhook can push against it and slide it all the way over.
They pay you $85 per service call. No pay for return trips. And they pay wholesale for parts. And you can be as shady as you want. They will always call on you. It's a total joke. The companies out here that do it are the same ones that do all of the home warranty work. They walk in, look at the product for two seconds, say they can't fix it, send in an invoice for $85 and move on to the next one. If you don't care about your reputation and want to change your company name every year, go for it.

When I worked for the blue nightmare, I would have to go on recalls for these guys. I spent more time calming the customer down than working on the product...

Washer Repair / Kenmore 796.40272900 "de" door Error
« Last post by enewton77 on August 29, 2015, 09:31:04 AM »
I have a Kenmore 796.40272900 front loader and I am getting a "de" door error.  The machine has power, but every time I try to start a cycle, I get 2 clicks and the de door error will pop up in the display.  At this point, I have purchased and replaced the door switch and it has not solved the problem. I still get the same error code. :tickedoff:   I have also purchased and replace the main board and it has not solved the problem. :tickedoff:  So I am just wondering what my next steps should be....wire harness perhaps?...I also read at one Sears forums that a part on the door is causing the door not to sit right.  This is what it read....

"the door is out of position when the door is closed preventing the latch from opening properly resulting in the de error code. you will need to replace the inner door frame over the hinge. this piece has been modified to make sure the door is in the proper position for the latch to operate correctly.. the part number is mdq61882301"

For some reason, the above comment relating to the door part isn't making any sense because there is no warping of this particular door part...and, it has worked for years.  Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone out there in repair land can offer some suggestions.  I am frustrated, spending a lot of money trying to figure this out, and the laundry is piling up...LOL.

Which model is your double oven? There are a few potential causes for the F1 code, depending on which boards and touchpads are used.
is there a reason why you brought back a thread from 2008? lol  :rofl:

I go way back like scrapiron.    Learned on an old time share unit,   we used to wheel it into calculus class.    We would call in to a local college with a big mainframe.      We would save our work on a roll almost like a calculator roll.     When we logged in,   you would feed the roll in and you could work on your program.    No graphics,  just text.    I had a Radioshack Z-80 with a dot matrix printer.    No lasers or ink jets back then.    Paid over 3000 for that back then.   Also had a Texas instruments computer and Atari computer that you plugged into TV.     Then,   started building my own computers.   Went through all versions of DOS,   and then Windows 3.1,   95,  etc.    Big thing back then ,   no plug and play.   Had to find drivers for everything and go through hoops to set up a computer.    Sometimes took days to find the proper driver that would work with everything.     Anyone remember PC tools (became Norton)     That was when you had very low power modems to download with.    Took forever to download files.       Big Breakthrough was when the intel came out with the 286 main chip.   Had one of those with a 20 meg (not gig) hard drive.   That was state of the art then.    Aaaaaah,   memories.
