Flash stuck on LG VX6100

My LG VX6100 accidentally went through the washing machine! After drying out a few days, everything started working normally except the LED flash stays on full time and therefore runs down the battery very quickly. Help!

If it survived one dunking it will most liklet survive a second SOOOOO. I am into R/C stuff and when our gear gets dunked we rinse it out with ultra pure water, Deionised/distilled water if you can get it. I think that the detergent in the washing machine may have left a residue and be affecting your electronics so if you wash it carefully in distilled water (yep dunk it again, crack it open and wash it all inside)to get rid of the detergent residue on the board (note REMOVE BATTERY). Afterwards dunk it in methylated spirits (test to make sure it wont affect any plastic parts first)to remove the water and leave to dry in a warm spot for a day at least. 2 years ago I dropped a $500 transmitter in a dirty dam (Acid /fuel/road runoff)and did exactly this and its been fine ever since. Worked the next day in fact. Its not a mobile phone but its always worth a chance. Once you've finished you may want to take it apart after you've tested it if its going and spray the board with CRC 226 circuit cleaner and water repeller. I've got it on all of my R/C gear and it gets regularly soaked for up to 1hr at a time in muddy water and is all fine.

I have a kitchaid dishwasher model KUDP02FR. When I press normal wash and heated dry, then start, the green light keeps flashing and will not start. Any suggestions? I had a repair man here in August for...


There are a couple of possible ways to reset the board. Pressing the keys HEATED DRY - NORMAL - HEATED DRY - NORMAL. I forget how many times, but all the lights should come on and it will do a diagnostic cycle.
It may work with the HI TEMP SCRUB, ENERGY SAVER DRY, HI TEMP SCRUB, ENERGY SAVER DRY keys depending on the machine.
I don't remember if the door is closed or open when entering the sequence. Try both.

AS PER DIRECTIONS FROM TECH, I PURCHASED AND INSTALLED A NEW CONTROL UNIT. THIS WAS BECAUSE MY WHIRLPOOL DISHWASHER GOLD GU2300XTLB3 QUIT WORKING IN ALL CYCLES EXCEPT SHORT CYCLE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK...


Hi,

This is a common problem with Whirlpool washers.If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.

Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has until all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.
Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.
If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their diagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.

HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
or
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec



Let me know, if you need further assistance.


Hope i helped you.

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start


restart curcuit board sequence

push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal

most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck

Jasjar-no sound-after spilled water on it.


I think you still have a good (not 100%) chance of saving it. It usually takes much longer than 1 day to dry out electronics that are still intact. I would open it up and let it dry. Otherwise, see if have a nerdy friend who has access to a non-humidified incubator and leave it in there for a few days. (that's how I salvaged a phone that went through the wash!)

Camera flash stays on...


You probably have a short somewhere in the phone. Open any access points, take out battery, mop up any visible liquid with a q-tip. Keep it in warm very dry area for 3-4 days (lots of air movement will help) and it will probably dry out inside. Connect battery again briefly, if flash still burns, leave for another few days. Fan heater on very low may help here, put the phone about where you would put a baby. Still not right, you probably have a fused contact point and need a repair.
