Dryer Repair / Re: Whirlpool Gas Dryer motor overheating - shuts-off
« Last post by Mayolito on September 27, 2020, 01:41:35 AM »
Hi Animateme , I am from MX located in USA. I have a GE Dryer (electronic MCU) and I have have the same problem that you described with your Dryer. Just wondering if you find out what was causing the problem of motor stopping around the first 20 minutes. I have made and change most parts and the problem is still there. I have taken all the action that you made (including that is a challenge for me)
even more I installed a different electronic board. (same problem) I replace the motor and initially was working fine but 2 months later the problem came back again. before install another motor I decide see if somebody have experienced the same problem and I am here. Please reply Thanks in advance.   
Thanks Dash,  I'll go out next week to check it out.  Do you have any idea on what the fresh food & freezer thermistors should read with the temperatures at 0 & 37?.  Thanks again for the info!

take a test cord (extension cord) with the (receptacle end) cut off and splice or crimp two spade connectors on each end. Remove the back of console - unplug washer and remove each end of the wire on each of the solenoid valves (I think there is 3 solenoids sets on this washer) and one by one set jump each solenoid set out - connect spade connector on each set individually then plug the test cord into the wall you should have water running into the machine if NOT you have a bad inlet valve. Let us know what you find - I replaced one of these for my neighbor about a 3 weeks ago. The Cold Valve had 3 mixing valves!

When I was recently faced with another agitator removal in a Speed Queen washer  I went to Menards and bought a set of the small air bag s that they sell for lifting furniture or doors. These fit in under the agitator very well and with 2 of them on opposite sides of the agitator i was able to pop it off easily. They sell for about $18 each and are well worth the money.
Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: Need help with a LG LinearCompressor

More follow up.  I made up a jig to safely connect the FC75LANE compressor to 120v RMS line power.  It hums quietly; however I note the following.
     1. The high pressure output does not get warm and the low pressure input does not get cold
     2. The compressor draws a whopping 0.5A when connected this way.

With the low amp reading I believe there are two possibilities.
     A. There is a seal inside the FC75LANE compressor that has failed and it is not able to achieve any kind of compression. or
     B. It is low on freon.

I would expect it to make more noise, perhaps metallic noises if it a seal had failed so next up I'll test the freon level.

Thanks again for the hint to connect it directly to line power, that was a very useful diagnostic.

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / GSE25HMHEHES Freezer Thermistor
« Last post by loksterebkdeak on September 25, 2020, 06:53:30 PM »
Hello all!

My fridge started frosting up so I replaced a broken heating element, the defrost thermometer, freezer thermistor and circuit board (after replacing the heating element alone didn't solve the issue. When I run the diagnostics on the fridge (0 7) it comes back as the freezer thermistor failing. ( 0 5 ) I have three different freezer thermistors all of which fail the diagnostics test, any clues to why this might be happening?

Freezer thermistor WR55X10025
Defrost Thermometer WR55X10025
Control Board WR55X31697

Does the freezer thermistor have to be at proper temp before the test will pass? 
Is the fridge diagnostics referring to the defrost thermometer not the freezer thermistor?

Thanks a bunch!

I finally got my new fresh food section evaporator fan + thermistor + defrost sensor assembly and replaced it last night.  After letting it fully defrost, and turning it back on this morning, it appears to be working better.  At least everything shuts off occasionally, which it didn't do with the faulty defrost sensor.
Lights run through the main computer and are supposed to start dim and gradually become brighter.  Marketing department thought it was sexy.

You might check the temp sensor thermistors -- they're inexpensive.  I have changed a few of the thermostatic dampers over the years but that's not common.

In further work on this dryer I found the centrifigal switch had a problem in that two contacts inside had been arcing and occasionally sticking together. This switch was taken off the motor and the cover taken off it. The contacts in question were cleaned up using a nail file and reassembled on to the motor. This fixed the problem although I would like to get a new switch assembly it does not appear to be available to buy . If anyone can tell me where to buy this switch I would appreciate it.
