Washer Repair / Re: Neptune MAH4000AYW
« Last post by Stang5Liter on April 16, 2014, 04:23:00 PM »
Ok when you say soldering island to soldering island, you mean point A on one end of that trace to point B? That's easy to understand but one of the lines has point A and then splits off 6 times to create point B and there is no direct island that it goes to. It only tees off to those 6 points.

Dryer Repair / Samsung dryer stops before clothes are dry
« Last post by Jwm1973 on April 16, 2014, 02:52:28 PM »
I have a Samsung DV438AER dryer that is about 4 years old. Recently it stopped heating and I replaced the heating element, problem solved. Immediately afterwards it would start and heat normally, but on sensor dry it would turn off a few minutes into the cycle leaving clothes wet. I replaced the sensor but I still have the same problem with the dryer turning off a few minutes into its cycle. I have cleaned the ducts and ensured unrestricted air flow, but the problem remains.  I've read online that the circuit board or even the drive motor may be the culprit. Everything works fine when using the manual timed dry setting. I have no idea what to check next, any ideas?

Got the lid lock in and installed it.After clearing the fault code I started the washer in the Cottons heavy cycle,and when it started it went to rinse from the start after the rinse it pumped out and went into spin and stopped.The lid lock light was on, but the lid didnot lock.I tried this several times and it did the same thing.Then I put it in permant press cycle and it drained and went into spin,the lid did lock this time and it went thru the spin cycle.Now it just flashes on - wash - lid lock,but the lid is not locl.What gives with this thing?Please help.

Hi, just 1 suggestion. After cleaning off the corroded traces, ignore them and run new wires, soldering island to soldering island for a cleaner and safer repair.
Good luck

I have repaired my board as well. Those traces are sub standard (very thin conducting layer) and are prone to failure as you have witnessed. Clean the burned traces and use point-to-point wiring as the repair.

I really like my Neptune 4000 and will repair it until I no longer do laundry.  8)

Just a follow-up here...

I replaced the spider and put it all back together. It's on it's 4th load now and all seems fine. Not bad considering I thought about trashing the whole thing. I spent less than a C-note and learned quite a bit.

Thanks for all of your help!

Half a year? Does it have a warranty? Send it in.

THANK YOU!!!! Just the words that it can be fixed will have my wife jumping for joy!  :D
Now...any advice on how to actually fix the board? I'm very handy with different tools but may have to leave this one up to a friend of mine who has a soldering station. I didn't even think to contact him because everyone I have talked to says the board is trash and to get a brand new one and go from there. You made my day...I just walked in the door from working a 21 hour shift and to see this on my way to bed is fantastic! Again  :thanks:  so much!!!!
