Remove the rear cover at the compressor and check for loose mounting bolts on the compressor and fan motor.

Will not stop running


Are you referring to the compressor not shutting off down below or the evaporator fan inside the cooling area not shutting off? Evaporator fan always runs the compressor is controlled by the thermostat you could have a bad thermostat if the compressor never shuts off.

The dryer ran for two complete cycles. the third cycle the dryer would not start. When the timer was switched it made a humming noise.


Hello,

That sounds pretty typical of a motor that has tight bearing and shutting off due to excessive heat being created at the motor because of the tight bearings on the motor. What will usually happen whena motor is very tight is that it will run a few minutes (or cycles) and get too hot and shutoff until it cools down and will start then shutoff agian once too hot.Along with it not starting because of the friction of the tight bearing the motor will make a humming noise and may or may not start.

Had the timer replaced today in the refridgerator because it wasn't cooling properly and time was sticking in defrost mode. Now the fridge is cooling fine but it doesnt seem to shut off. we havent put...


Good day,
24 to 48 hours would be a normal time to wait for proper cycling.
Important thru this time period to avoid haunting the machine by opening the doors a lot. That will just drag out the time.

Tub filled with water, Lr code


To pump out the excess tub water while failing to complete spin cycle;

Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.


This process is documented in the Service Manual. I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.



If I could ask you to do a little troubleshooting;

It sounds like the wash/agitate cycle completes and you enter into the spin cycle of the selected wash cycle is that correct. When the wash cycle fails does the Cycle Status LED indicate that the washer is in the Spin cycle?

With a empty wash basket no wash load in the basket and you start a Spin Only cycle will the Spin Only cycle complete?

If the washer will start the cycle do you hear and loud Spin Only cycle noise such as metal against metal grinding noise?

With the washer off and no clothes in the wash basket can you open the lid then Spin the wash basket as fast as you can in the CCW direction the only direction. The wash basket should spin CCW several rotations and coast down to a smooth stop dose it?

I’m checking for Outer Tub increased bearing resistance…..Rich

Clunking noises when cycling off


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.

Excessive wobble


If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
