there could be several problems. It could be impacted with dried residue, the solenoid could be jammed or burnt out or the contacts in the timer could be burnt.

Good luck

Whirlpool French door not making ice, but can get water. I had the water valve replaced and it still does not make ice help


Okay, here's a bunch of info in the order I would troubleshoot since the one year warranty expired.

1) The water filter might be clogged. Try just removing it to see if it makes ice. If it does change the water filter.

2) The water inlet valve might (still) be defective. The water inlet valve is an electro-mechanical valve. The coil can show good for continuity and still not let the water thru although you didn't say if it worked when he left. if recently replaced it should be under his warranty.

3) The water pressure in the house might be too low. The water inlet valve which supplies water to the ice maker is designed to work with a minimum of 20 psi of water pressure.

4) The door switch might be defective. When the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice maker and dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.
5) It could be that the ice maker assembly itself is defective. The freezer temp should be between 0-5 degrees for the ice maker to cycle properly. There are several components in the control module of the ice maker that can fail and most are not sold separately. Also, ice makers have a relatively short lifespan and so it might not be worth fixing. If other, simpler parts like the water inlet valve or shut off arm have been ruled out, and the only thing left is the ice maker itself, replace it as a unit. Not as expensive as you may think...Under $100

6) The icemaker module at the front might also be defective. The module has a motor that cycles the ice ejector arms around to push the ice cubes out when the ice maker thermostat closes. It also has contacts in it for the mold heater and water inlet valve. The motor or contacts of the module can fail. Usually there are test points in the module that a service person can use to determine if there is a problem with it or one of the related ice maker components.

7) The icemaker mold thermostat might be defective. Inside the control module of the ice maker is a thermostat which monitors the temperature of the ice mold (ice tray). Once the mold reaches the proper temperature the ice maker starts a harvest cycle by ejecting the ice cubes and refilling with water. If the mold thermostat is defective the ice maker doesn't advance. The thermostat can be checked for continuity. Replace it as needed.The freezer temp should be between 0-5 degrees for optimum performance.

What cause the main ccu to go bad


Not sure, but usually soap residue build up on the sensors are a big problem, make sure your using HD soap in it. You can run a cycle with white vinegar thru it, that will clean the soap residue off the sensors sometimes.

Yes, it is a dispenser system error. The technician manual says to check the mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to top of dispenser.

However, in my case this page from whirlpool was helpful:
https://www.whirlpool.com/product-he...r-code/PH5260/

It says a common solution for this error (f8 e2) is:
The detergent drawer or detergent cartridge might be clogged with detergent. Clean out the detergent cartridge per Use and Care Instructions.
If cleaning the detergent cartridge did not correct the problem, please contact us.
For any additional questions, please call our Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-698-2538, Monday through Friday 8AM-8PM Eastern Standard Time.
You will be asked to provide the model and serial number which is found on the front door rim after opening the door.



So I washed out my dispenser and now it's working again.

Sunbeam hot/cold water dispenser is leaking from looks like copper tubing that goes to tank. Model # ylr-5-87h3 what could my problem be


Broken solder connection.
Continual expansion and contraction of metal due to hot and cold extremes will cause metal fatigue. The most vulnerable place is at the join. Other places can fail, but usually the solder join will fail first.
Buy another one and support economy.
Make sure next unit is connected to cold water line, and not hot water line. If hot water dispenser is connected to Hot line, then it will cause water heater to run each time water is drawn through dispenser because cold water immediately enters tank.

You might also consider installing small tank under counter. Tanks are less glamorous than hot water dispensers but tanks are more reliable long term than instantaneous water heaters.

Eternal GU-195S Hybrid water heater


Is this new installation? Or old installation that stopped working?
Here's the 100% solution. And it applies to all brands, models, types, of tankless water heater, no matter which error code:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html
People should avoid complicated water heaters that claim 'energy star' and '98% efficiency' while proclaiming 'endless hot water' as if the laws of physics, economics and common sense can suddenly be suspended if only the customer would buy expensive, complicated water heater that cannot be maintained or repaired by customer, and there are no qualified technicians who live in your area.
Otherwise you need a service manual, or contact eternal manufacturer. 1-866-946-1096
http://eternalwaterheater.com/pdf/downloads/GU100.pdf
Error E02 does not show in manual.
E2 is ignition failure, which on other brands can be failed PC board... and inadequate incoming air supply, or venting, or failed sensor, dirty combustion parts, air or water in gas line, low gas pressure, wrong gas, etc, or multiples from list above.
