F28 error code on Maytag front loading washer

The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) has failed.

Possible Causes

- Reversed polarity or mis-wire along with open ground switch(es).

- Communication cable from CCU (MI3) to MCU is damaged.

Procedure for reversed polarity or mis-wire

1. Clear error code.

2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

3. Check the white wire on the RFI filter to ensure correct polarity.White wire needs to be toward front of washer.

4. Check outlet for correct polarity. To check within washer for polarity at the RFI, white to cabinet ground must be 0 volts.

5. Check that the ground switches of the toe panel and rear panel are correctly closed.

If switches are good ,replace the CCU.

Hobart three phase mixer is spinning the wrong way

Sounds like the polarity. Easily corrected by swapping the red and black position of the wires inside the plug. Make sure there are no other power sources feeding the unit before removing the plug.(the white and green wires should not be moved. Easy way to remember wiring a three phase plug. Most are labeled on the inside of the plug with GXYZ. G is always the green ground wire. X-red (Indians were here first), Y- white ( then came the white man) Z- black ( then the black man)

Coleman evcon wrong polarity or twinning error what does this code mean

It will probably means you have your hot and neutral wires crossed. The furnace has 120 volts coming in to it from your house. If the hot and neutral wire are wired to the furnace wrong, it will show this error. Take the electrical box loose where you can see the power cord coming in to the furnace. (turn off the circuit breaker to the furnace) Take the white and black wire loose , connect the black where the white wire was and the white where the black was. All you are doing is reversing polarity. I hope this works for you.

Whirlpool 665-13442K901 dishwasher electrical plug in shorts out

You reversed the black and white wires on what? Don't ever do that. One is the line and one is common. They are polarized for a reason.
Immediately stop using that outlet before you burn your house down. Switch the breaker off to that power circuit, then have a qualified electrician check it out.

How to install a 208v outlet for a stove

if its a single phase panel you will only have 120/240 v.a.c. you can wire it for 240 volts and it will heat faster anyway the only way you could have 208 volts would be if you had 3 phase delta or open delta 3 phase or buy a special "dry-type" transformer for 240 volt to 208 volt step-down,otherwise it will be red-& black will be your 2 hot phases of 120 volts each/white-neutral/and green or green-yellow will be the case safety ground

3 wire cook top to a 4 wire outlet

Older 3 wire connectors where Wht=Neutral Ground Return, Red=One Phase Hot, Blk=Second Phase Hot, of 220VAC stove connections.

Newer Electrical code standard has a forth wire that is bare copper for a separate safety ground return.
I suggest you but a 4 wire pig tail cable for your stove top, available at Depot or Lowes, and connect 3 wires of this 4 wire cable just like the 3 wires are now connected. The 4th bare copper safety is attached to any metal part of the stove. Find a screw you can loosen to wrap it around and tighten.
