Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

F&P dishwaher 601 ver2 wont drain -

Thanks for the troubleshooting re the above post. Have finally got round to swapping controllers and still have the same problem.
1.How do you check motor to see if its working properly?
2.How do you take motor assembley/heat unit etc apart? The area where the rotor fits into is worn. Would this possibly cause the problem?

Appreciate your help.

    Thanks Neil V. This was the problem. Followed the instructions and is now running fine. Think the stator was partially buggered as well as it was not tight in its housing - plastic clips were worn!

    Anyway thanks again for the help. I always try to fix my own probs and usually succeed eventually with a little help!

    One question. What does the flap washer on the drain hose actually do? As the end where it fits is broken and its $50 for a new drain hose so i left it out and it still sems to run great. Will it do any damage. i will replace the drain hose if need be!

Sorry for the delay!! If the area where the rotor fits is worn then this will definatley stop the water draining out. You will need to replace the stator assy and the rotor (if the faces are damaged).
HIS IS NOT AN EASY OPERATION..... The stator comes complete with the 2 o'rings. You will need to removed the wiring cover under the drawer, then remove the drain hose & fill hose from the dispenser, disconnect the wiring to the lower part of the controller. Squeeze the retaining clips at the rear of the drawer (underneath) you will then be able to remove the drawer completely from the cabinet. Flip the drawer over and carefully remove the wiring to the motor.lift up the retaining clip formthe locking ring, and turn the ring anti clockwise.The motor and heater plate will now be free to come away from the tub. I always lubricate the o'ring with washng up liquid which will allow the locking ring to slide easier. Good luck thisis not for the faint hearted!! Good Luck and let me know how you get on

    the flapper valve stops water re entering the drawer. You will probably get away with it so long as the drain hose exits the machine and is as high as possible, this will stop water flowing back into the machine. If you find this drawer always has water in the base you will need to change the drain hose. Cheers

I Have A Neptune Washer Model FAV6800AWW Have error code of LR Lock rotor? what is bad? control board ot motor or both?

Motor for the most part is bullet proof has a 10 yr warranty

I would start with front panel removal and see if you can rotate the Clutch Pulley CW the Wash/agitate direction and CCW the Spin direction. Make sure nothing is seized.

It could be an issue with the Control Board or the Motor Controller. I have working spares for all and that makes troubleshooting easier.

If you decide to troubleshoot further and try a Control Board swap (in the console) or a Motor Controller swap I would buy parts from a supplier that will allow you to return the part for refund with no questions asked.
Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.

This is a sticky on a DIY forum at the 5th post down you can link to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual. You can post in that forum in the Maytag washer forum for additional help. You will find a link to parts supplier.
I link you to a post on this forum where I was working with an owner who was troubleshooting issues and started throwing a LR error code. He ended up replacing both the Motor Control Board, my 1st suggestion and that did not resolve the issue. A Control Board swap in the Console resolved the issue. Maytag Neptune Top Load FAV6800AWW -- tub/motor will not spin ... I won't troubleshoot any further on this forum it's just difficult for me. Can't edit, search post and sometimes pics don't attach. There are better DIY forums out there for working on the FAV6800A/FAV9800A......just mu opinion.

Your machine more than likely is ready for an Tub Seal replacement.....Google this FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement Another forum I help owners with FAV6800A/FAV9800A machine issues........good luck.

Hi, on boot up from cold, computer hangs before post, only a long time of restarts finally kick it into action. please help!! alll volts are ok, have swapped mem around, checked bios.

Hi , Your bootup Relies alot on your RAM , swapping it around wont make a difference , Try running Memtest .
see if your Ram is ok , and take it from there , if it shows your RAM is faulty you might need to Replace it , and if it isnt Faulty , Try Taking 1 Part out at a Time and try booting For example , only boot with 1 Ram Card , Boot with MB GFX , and so on.
I Hope This helped

Bios Beep code

Beep Code Manual, Better Than Gold Techies, American Megatrends Int. & Phoenix
(I'm IT, I use these codes to trouble shoot hardware issues at my job. Enjoy) cold.gif
BIOS Beep Codes
When a computer is first turned on, or rebooted, its BIOS performs a power-on self test (POST) to test the system's hardware, checking to make sure that all of the system's hardware components are working properly. Under normal circumstances, the POST will display an error message; however, if the BIOS detects an error before it can access the video card, or if there is a problem with the video card, it will produce a series of beeps, and the pattern of the beeps indicates what kind of problem the BIOS has detected. Because there are many brands of BIOS, there are no standard beep codes for every BIOS.
The two most-used brands are AMI (American Megatrends International) and Phoenix.
Below are listed the beep codes for AMI systems, and here are the beep codes for Phoenix systems.

AMI Beep Codes
Beep Code Meaning 1 beep DRAM refresh failure. There is a problem in the system memory or the motherboard. 2 beeps Memory parity error. The parity circuit is not working properly. 3 beeps Base 64K RAM failure. There is a problem with the first 64K of system memory. 4 beeps System timer not operational. There is problem with the timer(s) that control functions on the motherboard. 5 beeps Processor failure. The system CPU has failed. 6 beeps Gate A20/keyboard controller failure. The keyboard IC controller has failed, preventing gate A20 from switching the processor to protect mode. 7 beeps Virtual mode exception error. 8 beeps Video memory error. The BIOS cannot write to the frame buffer memory on the video card. 9 beeps ROM checksum error. The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is likely faulty. 10 beeps CMOS checksum error. Something on the motherboard is causing an error when trying to interact with the CMOS. 11 beeps Bad cache memory. An error in the level 2 cache memory. 1 long beep, 2 short Failure in the video system. 1 long beep, 3 short A failure has been detected in memory above 64K. 1 long beep, 8 short Display test failure. Continuous beeping A problem with the memory or video. BIOS Beep Codes

Phoenix Beep Codes
Phoenix uses sequences of beeps to indicate problems. The "-" between each number below indicates a pause between each beep sequence. For example, 1-2-3 indicates one beep, followed by a pause and two beeps, followed by a pause and three beeps. Phoenix version before 4.x use 3-beep codes, while Phoenix versions starting with 4.x use 4-beep codes. Click here for AMI BIOS beep codes. 4-Beep Codes Beep Code Meaning 1-1-1-3 Faulty CPU/motherboard. Verify real mode. 1-1-2-1 Faulty CPU/motherboard. 1-1-2-3 Faulty motherboard or one of its components. 1-1-3-1 Faulty motherboard or one of its components.

Just bought a new 2GB memory card for my Fuji A340. Keep getting message 'Card Not Initialized'. Tried to format card to no avail. Gone through all troubleshooting solutions, tried to call Fuji support...

Sounds a bit like my problem with my Olympus 2gb XD card. Finally finished up half way round the world for an answear;I suggest you see if there are worldwide options for info. Post your problem and see what happens, I finally got my solution from Europe within 24hrs. Sorry I can`t help more just thought it might be worth a try.

Monitor works with one workstation but not another

OK; more basic troubleshooting is needed.

1] monitor doesn't work a] try on different cpu - check b] return with monitor from other cpu - ?

From the above I will try to spell out my steps.

1] notice monitor stops working
2] since I have another cpu close by - swap [it is important to also back swap {working monitor from other cpu]
analyze result.

I suspect that the video output somehow changed and the current display can't 'catch' what the video card is throwing.

does the display show the POST? is so, then you can start in safe mode and then set it to a low resolution.
