110.20022011 VMR washer
« on: January 11, 2013, 07:43:08 AM »
The board had a green light, but would not enter diagnostics, door light flashing.  I replaced the board and the door lock, and the new board immediately burned on power up.  Board was wired right, impossible to miss wire this board.  Upon removal of the board, the big resistor d040 was burned on both boards.  Since its a Kenmore, I cannot call Whirlpool technical support.  Any suggestions?  I have ohmed the lid switch, motor and shifter, and all seem to be OK.

The only other things the control does is the pump and the water valve. Did you check to see if anything was jamming the pump?

Check the restraint down by the drive motor. Had one burn up and caused a short which blew the board. Sorry don't remember what area was bad on the board but same  problem with no diagnostics on control as well.

I found a shorted pump and shifter.  The pump has some melting on it, and shifter has no continuity and smells burned up. I have a new pump and shifter, and  I am still waiting for a new board to put it back together and see if it burns the new board too.  I will let you know,  I was going to post with the final outcome.  Boy these washers suck. Going to cost the customer $350.00 for a 2 year old washer.  I don't know why the shifter, and pump shorted, burning the board.  I will now always check for shorted parts at the board when I work on these in the future.  Bring back the direct drive!!

I've replaced four lid switches in the last week. All misdiagnosed as a control board failure by W/P...

What's funny is all of the latches had the same problem. A small piece of plastic inside cracked. W/P really needs to get their act together on these parts.

About a month ago I ran into a VMW series washer with a wash cloth jammed in the pump.  It caused the board to blow as well.  big burn mark between the 2 boards.  You couldnt see the burn mark from the back of the board though where the wire terminals are at.  You had to pry the boards apart to see it.

I had one of these that shorted the board several months ago.   Same symptom - Green light,  wouldn't do anything or go into diagnostic.     I installed new board,  and it immediatly shorted out.   Got another board,   but this time I checked everything out.   In my case,   I replaced the shifter before replacing control.     Ohmed out shifter,  and was not the same as the new one.      Put in control,  and BAM   worked like new.   I Agree PK,  these washers suck if your the owner of them.    It was the only board that I have had shorted so far.     Morale of story - I'm checking out other components for short before replacing board the next time.
