Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Will not start cycle, it only lights up to tease you

One day it worked fine the next week nothing. All lights come on after touching power, NO error message, door latches, able to change settings.
Found the front panel screw on left (after removing detergent draw) but right side doesn't seem to want to release (I am not going to force it).

I am wondering if it is a circuit board issue, but only guessing.

Can not start a wash cycle


Hello. From the symptoms you describe, the problem might be a defective control panel. First, make sure the control lock is not enabled!! Look for a button that has a "key" symbol or the word "lock" underneath it. Touch and hold for 5 seconds until the lock is disabled. The part numbers for the different styles of the dishwasher for the control panel are:
BLACK--W10329522
WHITE--W10329521
BISQUE--W10329523
STAINLESS--W10329524
The touch control panels can become damaged from a variety of causes. Power surges(Have you had an outage in the last 3-4 weeks!?), defective components, moisture invasion, etc. are the most common culprits. If a button is "electrically stuck"(i.e. the computer thinks you're still pressing it), nothing else will work until the button is released. It is just like any other appliance with physical buttons(soft touch for example on a microwave or range). Now, if the dishwasher actually starts when you press the start button, then the problem lies with the main control board(part# W10352588)--remember--a stuck button will prevent any other action until it's released. The troubleshooting on this unit is relatively complicated--when diagnostic mode is entered, the clean light will flash a certain number of times for the first part of an error code(function code, then it will flash again a certain number for the second part, problem code,(ex. blink 6 times, wait, blink 1 time). There is an error code chart that has the meanings to the different sequences--(ex. a 6-1 is inlet water valve(function), and then "no water"(problem). You press the start button to advance to the next stored error code. Power off the unit to go back to normal mode. If you are hesitant about performing any of the troubleshooting, call for service! I hope this helps you!

Burners shut down at set temp but fan continues lowering temp


the reason he told you not to cycle the power is because some where there is a flashing light that he can decode and tell him where to start looking for the problem. Call him next it happens and don't touch the power or the stat until he gets to see the unit.

Controll pannes has dim lights and wont respond to touch


It sounds like a bad timer board . If you unplug overnight you allow discharging the capacitor on control board, that is the reason why it works next day. Check if the power outlet is grounded properly, and test a different outlet. If that does not fix the problem, then test and eventually replace timer board, motor control unit or any other control board present (dryness control if present).

Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot


Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!
