Hi, all! I bought a used LSE7806ACE that fairly quickly started giving us problems. The first issues were that the dryer apparently overheats or similar; it will run for a couple of loads but then be unresponsive for many hours.

Then, though, the washer suddenly died; it stopped when full and won't respond at any time in any setting.  I siphoned out the water and gave it a day but it still doesn't work.

I've read that we might check the main fuse, replace the lid switch assembly, and perhaps replace the dryer door switch (although the intermittent nature of that failure seems to point more toward something thermal), but I haven't yet managed to dig in after a couple of cursory looks.  I'd really like to get my hands on the service manual so that I can walk through the steps before attacking the machine, but I haven't found a source for one yet.

Does anyone have a pointer to a downloadable manual or any tips in general?


TIA & Happy New Year

:-D

Thanks so much!  That's awesome.

I'm still looking for guidance to get in, but I'll start by reviewing the parts diagrams to see where the screws go :-)

Hi again, all!  I'm back, finally...


I'm still looking for guidance to get in, but I'll start by reviewing the parts diagrams to see where the screws go :-)



Yeah, once I got down level with it I saw the two screws right in the front panel *duh* :-) I got the panel off and confirmed that I have connectivity through the fuse, so it won't be that.

Next to figure out how to test the water level switch (a round unit above the fuse), the lid switch (I have no idea where it is!), and maybe the timer (is it all self-contained in the control panel?) or even a control board (no ideas). What do you think?


Thanks again!

:-D

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-i5KqMA2RZwWGZIRU5SbElXSlk.   I think your problem will be with the lid switch Part #  12001514   You have to pull washer out from the stand to get to that part.Manual is old put is as close as i can find. Two 3/8 screws under lid to get the whole lid up.

I guess the washer will still fill with water but will not agitate or spin if thats the case as i guess it doing than look at the lid switch assembly that i gave you in my last post.This part #  WP207166   is one of the parts that make up that assembly and usually makes for no spin or agitate which can be check with a meter or by pushing in on the switch to hear if it makes a clicking sound.

The two hex-head screws or bolts in the front corners? OK; I'll take a socket to 'em.

So just where is the lid switch?  Mounted on the back side of the washer top, maybe?


Thanks again

It did fill one last time, but after that it has done nothing.  It wouldn't agitate, drain, or spin.  Once I siphoned the water out, I [am almost certain I] tried it again and got no response at any point on the dial :-(

Worked on many of these typically with the same issue - I would focus on the lid switches (there's a switch open somewhere) If my memory serves me correctly I believe there are (2) one attached to the lid Dead Center and another on left side upright pillar on the inside pillar. Let us know what you find.
