Dishwasher Repair / Re: LG dishwasher burning smell when in use.
« Last post by robertomartins on August 13, 2022, 07:54:17 AM »
Hello all,
I know this thread is not new - hope you still read it and try to help me out here.

Same thing, burning smell, lasted a week and then the unit stopped working (for obvious reasons). Corner of the control panel got hot, yadda yadda yadda.
See attached pics. The component that burned is another one, and the wires show signs of corrosion which is what probably caused the melting.

Model number in this one: DF7551ST (probably manufactured in 2014 or so).

My questions: is this fixable? do I need a whole new control board or just the damaged component(s) and the wiring harness?

Any pointers would be appreciated!!
Thanks

The folks at Speed Queen said it is too old and the 4 button  heat indicator control panel is no longer available  .Since it still works to heat and turns the drum properly I will not  mess with it. According to the factory this machine is about 40 plus years old. Works pretty good and is clean inside and out.

The above dryer was given to me for use as it is but the control panel is slightly unusual. It has a rotary dial for time and cycle selection. It also has a panel  next to the rotary dial with 4 lights in a vertical row that are presumably activated by pushing a button/light for a heat selection. The top button/light is the hottest and the bottom of the 4 is the lowest heat. The buttons do not light up but the heat function works for each one. When I push the top button/light heat is activated. When I push the next lower button There is a slight flash of light and heat is activated . The same for the next lower button/light.. I am looking for an explanation for the operation of this control panel . If anyone has info on it I would appreciate it. As this is a quite old dryer I dont wish to spend much money on it since it does work to dry clothes and runs smooth and quiet. All dirt and lint was cleaned out and the belt replaced.  Help .

My local dealer was able to find a usable piece that fits and works OK. Slight alteration to the length of the mounting screws was the only change I had to make.

FE means the washer is overfilling. First culprit: inlet valve(s). The harder your water is, the more likely that the valve will either clog or leak, or sometimes both.  Second culprit: pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch. Make sure the hose is plugged in at both ends and check for holes. If it's OK, then switch isn't that expensive. Maybe check it before doing the valves.

Replace the pump. Sounds odd, but a worn pump will sometimes let water slide back past the impeller. Then do a couple of tub clean cycles. Any time there's leftover water that you can see in the tub, the filter should be cleaned first, then change the pump if that doesn't do it.

I've worked on a LOT of LG frontloaders, but not toploaders. Do they even have a filter? The pump info is good, however.

Have a good'un

Hello all.

I have a GE Profile, model PYE22KSKOSS. After coming back from vacation, it suddenly stopped dispensing water.

I have traced the issue down to the hose in the door. I have water all the way up to the quick disconnect just before the hose goes down through the door.  After disconnecting  the hose I can dispense water from this hose by pressing the dispense switch on the door. I am assuming the water in the door hose is frozen, however I can not figure out how to disassemble the door to verify.

I have removed the dispensing panel on the front, and the inside bottom of the door which allows me to see the bottom of the hose I believe to have frozen water.

Any thoughts or manuals on how I can access this hose?

We just went grocery shopping and fridge is full so unplugging and letting the hose unfreeze is not an option currently.

Thanks for any help.

Update...... had repair man come out  replace breaker still didn't work. The outlet on my wall is 3 prug the dryer is 4 prug I bought a adapter from amazon it has the same rating as cord and when texting voltage at dryer it's good. The only thing is the adapter has a green ground wire that you plug into a regular wall outlet. I tested the outlet and it passed as well. The Repair man said it could be the motor or the heating element is shorting the ground. I'm checking that now and this is the only place I found that's having Same issue.
