I asked you last week about a Kenmore upright freezer that I determined to have a bad compressor. I got there and the temp in the freezer was 68*. I was told that it stopped freezing a few days ago, ( probably more than that ) and so I checked the evap/fan and it was working fine. So, I pulled it out and checked the compressor and it was so hot, I could barely touch it. I unplugged it for about 15 minutes and put a hard start on it, because the relay was bad. Let it run for about 20 minutes. Both the compressor and hard start were hot.
I was schooled to think that if the compressor is that HOT, and has been running like that for a while; that it’s NO GOOD. The reason is, as I was told, that the high temp breaks down the oils, etc in the compressor.
My customer had another freezer ( chest type ) and it was also NOT freezing. I opened the compressor panel and checked the temperature of the compressor and it was HOTTER than her upright. ( sho has a coffee plus shop ). I told her that both freezers were no good.
Anyways she called her refrigeration service people out. He told her, that the only thing wrong with the chest freezer is that it needs to be defrosted.
QUESTION: was I schooled correctly to think that if the compressor runs that hot for an ” unknown ” period of time that it is NO GOOD?

I went trough the diagnostic mode and ran a few tests. In the diagnostic mode it starts up normally, fills with water, empties water and spins normally at a slow/medium speed. The error codes that show are F1 E2 which from what I have read is a problem with the Drive motor or Main electronic control board. When I go to calibrate it starts to spin for a split second then it comes to sudden stop as if it gets stuck and the lid lock light starts to blink. This all started because when we try to run the washing machine and it would stay in sensing mode with the lid lock flashing while making a loud humming noise. I eventually smelled an electrical burning smell after leaving it in sensing for several minutes. After attempting this again I am noticing that after it goes through the sensing mode a couple of times and it wants to start up but it looks like it gets stuck because it comes to a sudden stop just like it does when its trying to calibrate.

Could this be the drive motor or main electronic control board?

Samsung dw 1E error code, model DW80F800UWS/AA, serial B009g9md604628d
This is supposed to be a high temp heating error. Had schematic for DMT800 series dishwasher with me. This wire diagram did not match the wire diagram on the main pcb cover on dw. Did not see thermistor listed on dw wire diagram on unit.
Heating element had 12 ohms, but no power going to it in quick wash cycle. Could not get it into diagnostic mode.
What should I be checking? I am guessing you need to pull the unit to get to components like LG brands?

How can I winterize my dishwasher for my summer cottage. I drain all the water from the system and use the air compressor to finalize so no water is in the lines. RV antifreeze to the traps.
Can you assist? I saw many of your you tube videos for how tos but not on the dishwasher winterization
Thanks

how to test the shift actuator from the control board

I have been wrestling with this for the past two days – ever since my wife noticed that everything in the fridge was frozen. This is a Samsung unit with the fridge on top and the freezer on the bottom. The freezer is working just fine and the freezer display agrees with a separate freezer thermometer I put inside the freezer. The fridge side, however, is set at 38*, but the internal thermometer says it’s about 12* in there!

I downloaded the service manual for this model fridge, but it is rather poorly written. I checked for trouble codes, but I didn’t have anything that matched what was in the service manual. On start up my display will completely light up for a second or two, then go dark and then a number “3” will pop up of the refrigerator side of the display. Then the display will show the actual temperatures of the freezer and fridge before going back to displaying the selected temperature settings.

A quick online search indicates a bad thermistor in the refrigerator section. I am a little wary because on start up, the fridge displays actual temperature quite accurately. Some thermometer inside the fridge is working. I get that a thermistor is not a thermometer and that if the thermistor is responsible for making the fridge self-defrost, then I guess it would make sense.

I suspect that the fridge evaporator is completely iced over. In an effort to remedy this, I went into the “forced operation” mode and selected fridge defrost. I’m currently listening to my bridge beep constantly as I wait to see if this does anything.

Food safety is something that I really obsess about and getting this fridge back to normal as quickly as possible is a huge priority for me.

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!

I own an appliance repair company in Texas. I have found the upper rack may disengage from the rails when the
customer pulls the upper rack out to load or unload the dishes
Wheel axle breaks and causes upper rack to fall when pulled out on many of the dishwashers.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance James.

Hi –

My kitchenaid dishwasher (3 years old) is leaking water under the right bottom side of the door. It is not a lot of water, and my first attempt to fix it was cleaning the seal, which had some small amount of scum on it. This fixed it temporarily, but a few days later the water leak was back. It is not a lot of water, and doesn’t happen during the rinse only cycle, apparently. Any ideas/thoughts on this would be very useful. It is a stainless steel kitchenaid dishwasher, similar to model KDTE104DSS.

Thanks!

I’ve watched your videos on how ice build up behind the back panel will prevent a frig from getting cold. I’ve also had to remove this build up of ice myself a total of 3 times. I noticed after the last time I removed the ice and plugged it back in my frig temp gauge would show 34 degrees but the compartment was not close to being that cold. Why would my frig not get as cold as the temp gauge even after I cleared all the ice out? Now I’m in the process of removing ice again and my question is what part do you think, based on your experience as a repair technician, I need to replace so I don’t have to do this every 2 months? I can verify that the fan is still operating properly. Would you suggest I replace the heater? Or the sensor? If I purchased the heater would the sensor also come with it? The frig is only 2 yrs 4 months old. Thanks for your help.

Both the fridge and the freezer are not operating at their proper temperature. They are both cool, but the fridge is not cold, and the freezer is not freezing.

I have a Samsung refrigerator. This is a French door unit.
The back panel in the fresh food compartment was solid ice the evaporator fan blade was frozen half way up.
I pulled the plug defrosted the back took it out. Replaced the evaporator fan. Plugged it back in the display, located inside at top showed 88 on the freezer side of control and the fresh food side of control. The evaporator fan was not running. I did have both doors open about 3 hours and ran a steamer inside to defrost the back panel.
The settings will not respond at all and the fan is not running. Is there something I need to reset? Thanks In advance

During self test mode I got these three error codes relating to fill and drain cycles. E22, E23, E31
I replaced the water valve and flushed out all hoses and filter from drain section. Still had same problem.
Wash cycle starts with no issues. Water enters and fills tub, soap enters and wash cycle progresses.
The whole wash is supposed to last 59 minutes. The customer stated that his cycle stopped twice. once at 44 minutes and a 2nd time at 17 minutes during spin cycle. When I tested it, it stopped with me once only at 21 minutes going into spin cycle.
I was listening to all sounds from the washer during the entire 59 minutes. At 21 minute mark, the tub stopped turning, the drain pump sounded as if it was working but the start button on top panel was lit up like a xmas tree. I guess it was waiting for me to press the start button in order to advance the cycle. When I pressed the start button a second time, the tub continued to spin and the cycle advanced. Does this sound like a control board issue, a timer issue or drain pump or other ?
For this model, I think the timer is part of the control board.

Whirlpool Cabrio Customer complaint it doesn’t complete spin cycle, water is pumped out but clothes are still wet. They start spin cycle to finish load.
Error codes:
F7E7 – Motor unable to reach target rpm
F0E2 – Over suds
F7E1 – Basket speed sensor fault
Unit agitates and spins in diagnostics. There is no clothes caught between tubs. There were no flashing lights when performing the tachometer verification mode. Wires and connections were good.
Not sure if this is a shifter problem or main pcb problem?
