SOURCE: Electronic controls don't count down properly

Your problem is the electronic control board and unfortant that you cant repair or even get parts for it . Only if you get the whole control board will you fix your problem assy unless you find a good appliance man that repairs electronic control boards

Thinking of 2 things either the transmission is out or the clutch is burnt out and the drum basket and possibly the drive shaft broken as well. Prices vary greatly by how many of these things are broken but should run between 100-200 including labor.

SOURCE: my lg intellowave microwave will not work

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

You can download many LG service manuals here, but strangely, they do not have part numbers in them.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

If you don't find your model's service manual or need more help, feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: whirlpool commercial washer stopped running mid

If the timer and lid switches are funtional and the machine is filling and shutting off correctly that only leaves the motor. Have the motor tested or replace it. Even though the timer is running it is possible that it is still at fault. If you have access to another timer try switching them to make sure it isn't the timer. This does sound like a faulty motor and I would start with that assumption.

Electrolux washer playing up!

Remove the top panel, there should only be 2 or 3 screws on the back of the panel, then slide the top panel back about 1/4 inch and it should lift off. Look to see if the belt has come off. Post your results back.

WE have a Maytag Neptune TL and it is stuck in the wash mode... as though the timer does not register to move on to rinse.


I'm and owner that knows the machine very well. If you are someone has some basic skills you can repair the machine.

It will come down to how much down time you can tolerate.

What I think is the issue is that the Upper One-Way bearing is seized and when the machine enters into spin cycle of the selected wash cycle the washer can't spin the wash basket. The Control Board tries to enter the spin cycle over and over again. There is no software routine in the Control Board to sense this and the machine keeps trying execute the spin cycle of that wash cycle......Timer never counts down.....

Place that wash load in a Spin Only cycle. If my diagnosis is correct then the machine will do the same thing never count down on the LED display in the Spin Only cycle.

All these machine are ready for a Tub Seal replacement and I can direct most owners thru the process. The cost is in the area of $60 for Tub Seal, ****** O-Ring and Outer Tub bearings. If you need to replace the Clutch Pulley around $80 additional. If you are the original owner I'm sure you have been thru that.

Here is a link to replacing the Tub Seal and Outer Tub bearings. See if this is a direction you want to go. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement

Here is a link to what I believe is your just took me a long time to extract info from the owner on the failure. [FIXED] Maytag Neptune, Timer Problem

Maybe a FIXYA tech can jump in and add what they think might be the issue and a troubleshooting/repair path to follow.

You can make the machine last for a long time............way beyond the 3.5 yr. to 6 yr. point of most failures.........but each owner has to decide their course of action.

I go by dh1200s on most washer DIY forums including this forum.

AEG Favorit 65050VI fills with water but fails to heat or wash (spray). Detergent is released and time counts down. No fault code indicated. Can you please advise?

Have you tried in one of the short cycles which does not heat the water. If the heater is faulty the dishwasher is waiting for the thermostat to click in and start the washer and keeps counting down.

You will have to replace the heater if short cycles are working ok.

Also try to follow the reset sequence shown on page 30 of the manual.

My dish washer dose not start, it keeps yieling "

Hi enasammar, First thing to do is to reset. Merely unplugging the power cord from the wall socket for 4 hours, then power up again.The purposed of unplugging is to dissipitate the stored current in the memory IC thats control the unit to hang up, so it will gone. Take out all inside the unit and clean,then turn on . If still not working give me the model number so i can find the schematic diagram for that unit. Hope it may helps.

Your timer has gone bad and you need to replace the time. Best bet is to get a Technician out there but you can do it yoursel. It is behind the face plate where it counts down the time
