SOURCE: Maytag Nepture MAH5500BWW burned control board

ummmm, honestly ive never replaced just the board(im an authorized maytag servicer) so our replacements have always been new, and in this case the repair kit containing both board and motor. that being said, i cant see a reason as to why you couldnt relace just the board itself, ,Ireally never found the reason why the board would burn out, but, as far as repair kit im certain that they were trying to get all circuit boards and motors back to only one model, instead of having 5 or six different boards andmotors, this will bring them all to the most recent board and motor, never was an issue with themotor, jusat that you couldnt wire in the new board without the neew wiring. As long as its the same board i cant see why that wont work. as far as the "wax motor" that was a seperate issue burning out the Top control board, total seperate then your problem,., dont really see an issue with installing your "used board"

I called sears recall dept 1 888-548- 1509 told to make a service call about F problem and if that is the cause your charge for service call will be refunded and a new control board installed at known charge.The 27082 is not on the recall list yet but sears is aware of this condition.Don't give up just keep calling and ask that a copy of your call and complaint be forward to your address ,sears receives numerous call's each day about F1 control boards.

Cal them your self now and see if they will do this repair 1 888-548- 1509

i would go for the repair as you still have 6000 hours left on it that you can use up plus if he repairs it the life expectancy could be extended another 2000 hours..i would consider that before buying another machine and let him repair this one

Today (4/3/09) I got a letter from Sears. They will replace the electronic control board (you know, the F-51 business) for FREE, in warranty or not. Serial #s for the Bad Board begin: CS48 - CS52 or CT01-CT49. Call Sears at 800-847-9083. The voices of all of us have finally been heard! There is a class action attorney firm in San Francisco looking into a legal remedy.

Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

This is a very simple and inexpensive repair that you can do without the assistance of a repairman. The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. The part number for a replacement for your washer is 3949238.

NOTE: You DO NOT need to drain the washer to replace the lid switch. Once a defective switch is replaced, the washer will drain.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

I have a Miele W1215 washer that died during mid cycle with no power and it looks like it is getting power to the machine, but control board doesn't lite up and will not open door.


YouFixit in Europe does a complete overhaul on this board for less than 100 Euros. See Miele Repair ELP150 / ELP152 / ELP153 / EL154. This also prevents some other issues with this board from happening in the future.

We have a maytag refrigerator model msf21d4mde01. We started losing power to the controls on the door, but it would restart after an hour or so. Note that the fridge was working properly during the outage,...


Hello;

My mane is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

In your owners manual it is recommended that you have a surge protector. You can purchase individual wall socket surge protectors for about $22.00.

Any appliance in your home that has a control board should have a surge protector. A power surge can knock out your control boards.

You should have a 12 month warrantee. Get the surge protector before the service technician comes.

The control board on the door P/N W10606407 Cost $115.00 - $150.00.
You also have a power board in the lower back that communicates with the front control board. Since you have power this board is probably good. Cost: $120.00.

If you do not have coverage at this time and also even if you do, contact Sears Home Services and buy a, "Protection Agreement". As for the, "SMART" agreement. It covers you for $500.00 per service call. If you have 3 service calls in one year you are covered for $500.00 on each call. If they can not fixit after 3 calls then they give you $500.00 towards the purchase of a new unit. Do not let them talk you into the more expensive, "Master Protection Agreement". You do not need that.

If you do not have coverage now, then buy the , "SMART Agreement" wait 3 weeks and then call for service. The service technician does not care how new the coverage is. The technician just wants to do the repair and move on to his next 10-13 service calls scheduled for that day.

I have a SMART agreement on my clothes washer, which I can repair, but the service agreement cost less that the control board parts.

You would be better off to buy locally. Try to find a local astronomy club and attend their meetings and star parties. Sometimes the members sell their older equipment at greatly reduced prices.

Temperature set to 33 but only gets to 40


You have a Sears ref. You didn't state that the service you used was Sears. Why I ask is because if you have a problem with the electronics -- the cost of guessing with these parts is expensive and there is generally no return on those parts. My suggestion is to call Sears and ask for the "Service smart agreemment" it is a pre-pay costing in the in the 200+ dollar area but will give you a repair value of 500 per call for a year. Plus you know it will be fixed and working. startingwith the second trip, if needed, there is a food loss payment with the policy.
