Washer Repair / Re: Maytag top-load washer with LF error code
« Last post by tagarman on May 30, 2020, 02:49:55 PM »
UPDATE:  My customer just informed me that they have a extended warranty on the washer.  So they had the warranty service company come out and the service tech told her he could not find anything wrong with the washer.  He said she was using too much detergent!  After that she washed 3 loads OK and the LF error code came back again.  Her husband thinks it's a faulty main control board.  Her extended warranty states that if the washer cannot be repaired they will replace it with a new unit so I guess I'm out of the loop and most likely will never hear back from her to find out what was wrong or it the washer was replaced. What will be - will be!!!

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: WR30X30972 Icemaker

It could be something as simple as cleaning the condenser coil.

Nearly same issue as diagnosed in this thread:

https://www.appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=18624.0

If I plugin drain pump and ice maker separately, they both work, but if I plug ice maker into drain pump (to facilitate shutoff if water backs up), then no power to ice maker. So, 2 possibilities:

1) Drain pump switched off power to save my floors, and needs to be reset
2) Drain pump transform is dead, so doesn't pass power even though it still drains water fine

To rule out #1, is there a way to reset or clear the drain pump's power down status, so it resumes passing power to the ice maker?

If not, and this proves the drain pump's transform is dead, can I just replace the transformer part, since the drain pump still drains, and replacing the whole device is about $500?

Dryer Repair / Re: Older Maytag gas dryer model LDG 410 with s/n 381891 JC

In order to make this unit work I did some additional rework. I took the flame sensor off and took it apart from the clamp and removed the glass. BTW if a person is working on a gas dryer it is a good idea to take this off and clean the clean the glass. I also moved the burner/ignitor assembly as close to the edge facing the flame sensor. Rework of the mount is necessary for the attachment screws. With these changes the unit works . Obviously some refinement is going to be necessary but I feel confident that I have succeeded. What a job !

So it turned out the compressor was seized up, the heavy current draw blew the trace on the relay board, that trace is for the lites, the fans and the compressor. So now the customer has to buy another fridge.

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: Samsung RF4287HARS can only cool a little bit

Just want to give an update.  I have vacuum tested and it held the vacuum over night.  Charged to the factory spec of 160g R134a, and the suction size pressure is at around 5 psi when running the compressor at high speed.  So far it seems working well.  Thanks everyone for sharing the knowledge.

Dishwasher Repair / Danby ddw1899wp dish washer not working
« Last post by Nick2020 on May 30, 2020, 12:01:50 AM »
I have a Danby ddw1899wp portable dishwasher, when I push the power button the power light comes on but there is no beep and no other lights. What's strange is I poured water in the tub and it pumped it out but would not do anything else. What could it be?
