Sure if one of the windings in the motor is bad or on the board.  There should be a tech sheet behind the washers bottom access panel that tells you how to test the motor and board.

The answer to your question is maybe. Get a couple of switches from a junkyard (my guy gets $5.00 each) and try them. Here's why: I have no less than five different wiring diagrams, and none of them make any sense at all (been doing this stuff a really long time) I keep a good switch handy to check my jeeps when one gets wierd on me...even so, my 93 passenger window works with the key off, none of the others do. Stopped trying to figure it out a long time ago, but would really like to meet the guy who designed this stuff!

If you want you can jump the switch out by taking the wires off the switch and put electrical tape around them together really tight and see if that works if so its your switch thats bad

Hi, if your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

Hello Marcus, since you have already reset the dishwasher, confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power did not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the appliance. I hope this information proves to be helpful in some way.

Frigidair LTF2140ES3 has no power to start switch, (good power at wall connection)


Hello Frank Webb - Does the cord or plug look damaged? If it does not, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. If it proves to be ineffective, I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the control board, faulty door lock assembly, faulty pump, or the timer itself is not operating correctly.

Hello cbrhonda125 - Try resetting the unit dryer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and if it proves to be ineffective, there are multiple possible causes; faulty power cord, house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch. This is something that a professional would need to properly diagnose.

Make sure the latch is not broken on the door. Retry. If this continues contact a professional so the latch and door assembly can be diagnosed. Also check to see if the door is sagging down at all.

We have a digital display on our Frigidaire stove it is not working and nor is the oven. The elements are fine. Any suggestions please?


Hi.

A technician should read voltage to the electronic oven control board, to test the EOC in full. For safety reasons testing hot wires is an operation that must be done by a repairman.

If there is no power to electronic control, then the wiring harness must be replaced.

If the oven control display is blank I would exclude that the problem is being caused by faulty element, faulty temperature probe, or defective door latch, all this faults do not cause the display and controls being non-responsive.

Most ovens have display, control board and pads as separate parts, in that case the connectors between parts in the control assembly must be tested.

Parts and diagrams for most models are available here.

Regards.

Ginko.
