1995 dodge Dakota code 55? Code 12?

Code 12 means that the battery input to the PCM was disconnected within the last 50 key cycles (this is a normal condition).
Code 55 means that you have reached the end of the codes. This is also normal

So if you have a 12, 55 code readout, you basically have no error codes stored.

Here is a link that lists the code sand what they mean.

Refrigeration ynit not going into defrost, I need a electrical wiring diagram to help me troubleshoot this one. Where can I get that?

See defrost timers and wiring diagrams and manuals

You posted under 8145-20

8145-20 is time initiated, temperature or pressure terminated.
Defrost timer training pdf

The 8145-20 timer:
Power leads connect to terminals 1 and N.
For 120Volt circuit: L is black hot wire to terminal 1, N is white neutral wire to terminal N
For 240Volt circuit: L1 and L2 are the hot leads from 240V breaker

'NO' means normally open, so terminal 3 turns ON only when timer turns on (that is 'time initiated')
So the hot gas valve for defrosting is connected to terminal 3 and turns ON when timer turns ON.
The other wire from hot gas valve connects to terminal N where it completes the circuit

'NC' means normally closed, so terminal 4 is ON at all times EXCEPT when timer turns ON.
That means fan is ON all the time, except when time initiated sequence begins, and then fan turns OFF while hot gas valve is defrosting unit.
The other wire from fan connects to terminal N where it completes the circuit

The cycle limit switch is connected to terminal X.
This is the switch that terminates the defrost sequence and turns timer OFF
Other wire from cycle limit switch connects to terminal N where it completes the circuit

I also suggest you ask a paid fixya experts who can provide additional information by phone.
Paid experts will not answer your question unless they know the answer, and if their answer is not complete, then fixya offers money back guarantee.

I have od on my control panel what does it mean


The OD "fault" code on the display means "OPENED DOOR". This does not mean the machine thinks the door is open, but it has not recognised that the door was opened prior to starting a wash cycle. This could be because you filled it, then turned it off before turning it back on to run the cycle. Often you can clear this "code" by simply opening and closing the door again and starting the wash cycle as normal. If this doesn't work then there may be a fault in the door lock switch or the control board.

Hope this helps.

Front loading washer stops after the wash cycle and won't rinse...blinks "F-20" on digital screen and I have to restart. It won't proceed to the rinse cycle. Once I restart it, I think it works fine.

I don't know what kind of washer you have and what the code means, but I can say that if it is running normally, but just doesn't want to rinse, I would look at a cold water supply problem. That's because cold water is what is used in the rinse cycle. I would check to see if there is a faulty solenoid on the water inlet valve. It can be checked with an ohm meter or multimeter for continuity to see if it is faulty. Also check the small screens in the inlet valve and make sure they are not clogged up. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Display error code of Lr on control panel

L means "Lid or Door Lock" problem
r probably means 'release' I couldn't find it anywhere... so I'd guess that Lr means the machine did not detect that the Lid Lock released and cycle end (which means either the sensor is bad or the Lid Lock dosen't lock the Lid).

Either way, something with the Lid Lock system ais not right. Be glad it releases ;-)
