The control board is on the front panel and you will need to remove the front panel to get access.

Lid closes to push down lever to let machine spin how do i fix that mechanisum ?


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

What does F70 mean on a front load dryer?


Hello Carol;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

F70:

No communication between the electronic control board and the user interface control board assemblies.

Unplug the dryer. Check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the user interface control board assemblies. If the connections are sound, have a technician diagnose the cause of the communication failure. The main electronic control board and/or the user interface control assemblies might need to be replaced.

What does F11 error message stand for on my Whirlpool awo 9565 washing machine?


The F11 fault code indicates a serial communication error between the Machine Control board and the Motor Control board. This can be caused by several different problems.

A failed Machine Control board could be failing to provide the Motor Control board with proper voltage. If this is causing the F11 code, then the Machine Control board would need to be replaced.

The Machine Control board could also be failing to supply proper voltage to the door lock assembly. The Machine Control board would need to be replaced for this failure as well.

Voltage flows from the Machine Control board to the Door Lock Assembly. The Door Lock then energizes and closes the Door Lock MAIN Switch. Voltage flows out of the Door Lock Main Switch to the Motor Control board. So if you have power into the Door Lock Assembly but not out of the Main Door Lock Switch, it will give you an F11. If so, you will need to replace the Door Lock Assembly.

You could have a bad Motor Control board that is causing this failure. A bad wiring connection between the Motor Control board and the Machine Control board could also cause this fault code. A bad wiring connection between the Motor Control board and the drive motor is also a possible failure. A failed drive motor could also cause the F11.

With so many possible causes for this failure, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the problem in your washer. If you are able to unplug the washer and check the wiring connections, you may be able to find a loose wire harness connection that is causing the problem. Much of the diagnosis for the potential problems noted above requires live voltage checks. I do not recommend conducting these types of checks yourself. Unless you want to take a chance and replace the Machine Control board and the Door Lock Assembly,

Frigidaire dish washer FDB4315LFo Error code uo


You are experiencing a vent issue - While in wash cycle, Main Control Board does not receive signal from vent assembly that vent plunger is closed. Plunger status is sensed with optical sensor in vent assembly. Check wiring between vent assembly and Main Control Board. If wiring correct, replace vent assembly. If error still exist, replace Main Control Board.

PAU error code comes on when iI test it it shows e41 door lock


Hello, welcome to FixYa

Based on the info you provided, specifically the E41 error, It sounds like the unit is detecting an unlocked door, loose wire, or the control itself is bad. (E41= Shorted or open. Defective door lock assembly.Around 1500Ohms. Defective control board.)

The PAU simply indicates the control thinks it has been paused...that may be just a side affect of the door lock assembly.

Here's how to check...

**Unplug the unit from the wall first...safety first**

Remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. Should get a reading of around 1500ohms.


Attached here is a great tutorial for accessing the assembly for testing and replacing.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if anything is not clear.

Thank's again for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My machine wach but do not spin a the end.


Note: This solution is intended only for asker qualityisc as per Live Chat session discussion. Error code reads E47 which means the Control board thinks the PTC circuit (wax motor) is open.

Unplug the machine then remove the spring-loaded wire loop that holds in place the front of the bellows over the lip of the door opening in the front panel.

Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected at the bottom of the bellows and pull the wire out of the groove of the bellows then pull the bellows off of the lip of the front panel.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine and disconnect the electrical connections.

Measure the resistance of the wax motor. The normal resistance is around 1500 ohms. Shorted or open circuit wax motor means the door lock and switch assembly needs to be replaced.

Simply
replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) if the wax motor reads shorted or open to address the issue. But if the wax motor resistance is normal, check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness, particularly the wax motor wire harness. Start with the continuity of the red/black wire of the wax motor harness to each of the red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness. They should all have continuity; otherwise, replace the harness.

Remove the top panel to access the control board if further continuity test is necessary or if the red/black wire of the wax motor harness has continuity with the all other red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness.

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the cabinet then lift the panel off. The console can be removed from the cabinet to completely access the control board connections, particularly the door lock and switch assembly harness connections. Check the continuity of the red/black wires at the door lock and switch assembly to the red/black wire of the harness connected to connector J2 on the control board.

The problem is in the control board if the wax motor is good and the door lock and switch assembly wire harness has all the necessary continuity. The only viable solution, should that be the case, is the replacement of the control board.

What is e47 code mean


The problem is with th door lock assembly or the control board. You can meter the PTC on the door lock assembly to determine if the problem is in the lock or control board. If PTC meters open or closed = bad door lock assembly. 1200 to1500 ohms = bad control board.
