Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a barely-used Whirlpool dryer (wed9050xw1) bought and shipped to a house in Costa Rica last year. If there are too many (which means even a small load) or too few clothes in it, it won't run -- the Wet sensor light just blinks. Any ideas?

SOURCE: lg wd-3243rhd front load washer and dryer combo "le" error message

LE error code means the motor sensor has failed.  The motor sensor is located in the back of unit inside the motor.  You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG.  You will need a 17 mm and 10 mm socket tools to do this job.

SOURCE: Blinking light cycle won't start

sounds as if you have a bad door latch assy, the unit is not recognizing the door closed, so when the button depressed probly only beeps 3 times at you. check the lock/latch for an obvious broken part

Is this a TOP LOADER? Or is this a FRONT LOADER?

If this is a TOP LOADER you may have something as simple as a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms may include, no spinning, no agitation, stopping at the rinse cycle and no draining. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. You should hear the switch "clicking" as you open and close the lid. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between these sites, so shop and compare. Verify if these sites offer international shipping.

If this is a FRONT LOADER, your problem may be attributed to a defective drive motor, or motor control unit (MCU). If the problem were attributed to a clogged drain pump filter, the washer usually does not perform the initial fill. The cycle usually stops before the washer can fill and an error code will be displayed. Depending on the model number, you will receive an error code of "F02", "F21" and/or "SUD". Please post back and let me know if you have a FRONT LOADER, and if you are getting any error codes.

If the suggestions I have listed do not match your washer symptoms, please post back and elaborate more on what the washer is/is not doing so I can provide you with better assistance. Please include your model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) if its different than the one you listed the question under so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: You do not have to drain the wash tub to perform this repair. However, if you wish to drain it due to stagnant water, you can use simple gravity by placing the drain hose in a bucket (messy). Or, you can use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain line.

I downloaded a Costa Rica map but I can't pull it


The only workaround for this "problem" is to connect the garmin to the PC, go to the GARMIN folder and rename the file gmapprom.img (this is the main map file) to 1gmapprom.img
reset the device and it will load the costa rica map.
when you need to use the base map again, undo the renaming.

This unit only contains the maps for the United States and Canada, and it doesn't appear to have any more maps available for it. You could call the manufacturer, but it looks like there aren`t any maps for Costa Rica for this device.
