Question about Washing Machines
I am a service tech in grants pass oregon and i am working on a kenmore front load washer mod # 417.44152400. I have done the diagnostic cycle and says that it has a bad control board. I just replaced it and now it still says i need to replace it. Code 43. Already replaced the door switch. Yes it does agitate and in the diagnostic cycle it does the final spin. Just wondering if anyone else has ran into it. (probably cause this washer is a piece of junk!!!!!!!!!) I think it may a speed controler but dont want to just replace it. A sears tech looked at before i got the washer and said it was a bad control board too. Just wondering if someone else has ran into this too. If so let me know what you did. I would like a quick fix. I dont want to spen hours to find the problem.
It's a bad wax motor inside the door latch. The diagnostics are buggy and do not test it properly. It should measure about 1.5K ohms, and when 120 VAC is applied to it, it should extend in about a minute. Part number 12002535 is $10 to $15.
To the tech that replaced the the main control board AND the latch: If the wax motor is short-circuited, maybe it blew the main control board, and then the replacement main control board.
