Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: Whirlpool WRX986SIHX00 No ice low KED
« Last post by Awalker on July 25, 2022, 11:23:43 AM »
I thought I had updated this. After having unplugged the unit, removing the back panel,  leaning the coils, testing, cycling the ice maker, it started making ice again without any further trouble.
 I still need to fix the LED lights. Also, apparently I turned off tThe dinger somehow. It no longer dings when you change from ice to water, leave the door open, etc.

Should have a Tech sheet somewhere there possibly underneath the upper hinge cover are possibly up underneath behind the toekick .put unit in diagnostic mode. I would suspect a faulty thermistor.

From what I can see your model number is incorrect 3rd digit from the end is Incorrect. My recommendation would be to go to diagnostics test number 56 and see what your ice maker code indicates. Of course a temperature test is a 1st priority . If you have the correct temperature and test 56 is good, While you're in diagnostics you can test all thermistors as per your Tech sheet. Try unplugging unit for a couple minutes; could have a glitch in board thats causing both issues.

Washer Repair / Re: LG washer WM2701HV Bleach not dispensing during tub clean cycle

UPDATE: Bright Whites cycle dispenses bleach as appropriate. Issue is only present on tub clean cycle.

Ok, low side pressure dropped to about 15 psi.   Freezer got down to 39 but fridge went to 55 degrees.  This thing sounds about right for 2022.

Washer Repair / LG washer WM2701HV Bleach not dispensing during tub clean cycle
« Last post by Reidm on July 23, 2022, 10:58:41 PM »
LG Washer Model WM2701HV

When running the tub clean cycle, I fill the liquid bleach dispenser to the max fill line with liquid chlorine bleach as indicated in the user manual. At the end of the cycle the dispenser is still full and appears to not have been dispensed. Washer is level and inlet hoses and dispenser are all clean. Siphon towers are all clean and clear. When running test mode, the dispenser inlet for the bleach works (water comes out). But when I run tub clean with the dispenser drawer out, only main wash and softener inlets (not prewash or bleach) activate.

Any ideas what could be the cause?

Haven't tried running the bright whites cycle yet. Will try that next and update.

This is my sister's fridge. I told her I would look at it and see if I could fix it for her.  I had a spare fridge/freezer in my shop that only held beer so I've let her borrow that while I tinkered with this.  All 3 fans are working, compressor is working, no codes but the freezer will not get cold or below 72 degrees.  The top half (fridge) gets down to 34 degrees though.  I'm obviously not a refrigerator repair man but I was an auto mechanic for about 10 years so I understand the basics.  The low side of the compressor is 30 psi which for a car that would be pretty close but I'm not sure on the fridge/freezer. Any help, tips or pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.  I'm tired of walking back up to the house for a cold beer.

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Re: Need help with a LG LinearCompressor

Thanks for your reply.  Unfortunately I jumped the gun and purchased the new LANA with the upgrade module thinking I could do this but realized I couldn't when reading this thread.  Luckily I have NOT installed the new compressor so I should be able to return these items.  I'm thinking the best option is to buy a new fridge.

Well, since you've ordered them, you still may want to proceed. Check this thread:

https://www.appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=29715.0

Although one anon there says that one LG technician said they aren't upgradeable, there's another anon who says that most are upgradeable and he rarely runs into ones that refuse. So since 1) the jig isn't too expensive if you break/unpack it and you don't have to unpack the compressor before you update it 2) you've already ordered it I suggest you unpack the jig and try to upgrade. If it's successful you may end up keeping your fridge. Changing the compressor isn't super hard, there are videos on youtube on how to do it. I haven't done it myself, but I've welded the AC unit which isn't much different, the tools and stuff costs peanuts and you definitely are saving hundreds hard earned dollars by doing it yourself. Or you may find a technician who can do it for you.

It's just I've been having the new fridge for > 1/2 year now and it's no better in any way or maybe even worse than the old one from 10 years ago which I had to junk. I still have payments on that and it hurts each month to make that payment for something that isn't any better than what I had before.

I was seeing the exact same issue with my dryer, and my problem ended up being electrical, but was due to the wall receptacle. It had been installed upside down, and I think over time, the heavy cord caused stress and the plug was somewhat lose in it, i.e., the plug was not making good contact in the receptacle. After replacing the receptacle, the issues went away. 

I thought the issue was the control board, but the information in this thread lead me to look at the power delivery instead of the dryer, saving me a lot of time and money.

I know this thread is really old, but it pops up in a google search and I thought it best to update this one to add another possible source of this issue.

Was there ever an answer here on this one?  I have the exact same boards and issue.

No. From the best of my understanding collected both here and other forums, these 2 PCBs aren't upgradeable. Your choice is to replace the compressor with a stockpiled one of the same model (bc 10 years life isn't too bad TBH) or junk the whole fridge (which I did).

On the other hand, if you are into experimenting, you can replace it with LANA and see what happens. What if LG lie? I wouldn't be surprised TBH, because telling truth in this case may not be deemed in their best financial interest.

Thanks for your reply.  Unfortunately I jumped the gun and purchased the new LANA with the upgrade module thinking I could do this but realized I couldn't when reading this thread.  Luckily I have NOT installed the new compressor so I should be able to return these items.  I'm thinking the best option is to buy a new fridge.
