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.

Kenmore error codes


Unfortunately this is a bad error code. Most times it is either the control panel or the main control unit. Both are expensive and there is no way to determine which has failed with out replacing them.
Sorry for the bad news.
Here is what the tech sheet has to say about the error code;
SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR
Possible Causes/Procedure
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Check that the power cord terminals are connected at the right position to the RFI filter
(white-Neutral/ black-Line).
- Check the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe and rear panels.
- Check that ground switches are fitted correctly, and are not broken and the green
ground wires are connected correctly.
- Check both ground switches are not broken or have not scratch on them.
- Check that all the ground harnesses (green wires) are connected correctly and are not
broken or wires became detached.
- Check all wire harness connections from the CCU (MI3 cavity), main Motor and MCU are
not broken or wires detached and connector internal pins are visible.
- Check for continuity from the MCU connector wires to CCU (MI3 cavity) connector.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed the Main Harness must be replaced.
- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.
- Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the unit operation by running a test cycle.

2004 pontiac grand prix installed new key switch pass key 3 error theft system not programmed


If you have the 'chip' key it HAS to have the correct resistance or it will not work. This is programmed into the ECM and will shut the car down if the resistance does not match. If you have an OHM meter, check across your old key at the chip and write down the ohms of resistance. Then do the same with the new key. If they are not the same OHMs the new key won't work unless you have the computer re-learned at a dealer. Most locksmith's and garages can install a temporary fix by installing a resistor of the correct ohms between the wires of the theft system under the dash (two small white wires coming from switch)

Brother mfc 420cn will not turn off


It sounds like you have a defective power switch. Switches will break at time. I found that the plastic support that the metal switch toggles over can break preventing the switch from operating properly either staying in the continuous on or off position. Try contacting Brother International Support at 877-436-2665 for assistance. They can probably give you the correct part number for the switch and send you one for a reasonable price. I found them to be quite price competitive with what one might find online at eBay or other third-party vendor.

When you receive the switch, you will need to disassemble the machine to get to the switch to remove it. This switch will either have screw on terminals or the wires will be soldered onto the terminals. If it is the first, it's easy to remove the wires and move them onto the new switch. If it is the second thing you'll likely need to desolder the wires from the switch and then resolder the wires on to the new switch.

To prevent inadvertent error, remove one wire at a time and move it to same terminal on the new switch.

HI, I HAVE A SYLVANIA MODEL SA 170 , I CAN´T SEE THE NUMBERS WHEN I´M IN FROM THE SCREEN, IT´S APPEARS VERY DARKS


If I understand correctly, you have Sylvania 170 timer and the display doesn't light up.
If you have different problem, add a comment.

A) If this is existing installation and timer display worked correctly before, then it sounds like timer malfunctioned or power to timer is interrupted. Check breaker, and then pull out timer and test for power.

B) If this is new installation, then 2 possible things:
1) Timer defective: exchange for new one.
2) Timer not wired correctly.

Review wiring:
Timer replaces single pole switch.
Single pole switch has two wires
Timer has 3 wires: Blue Black White
Timer has additional wire to run internal clock and to light up display.
If timer not wired correctly, then display will not light up.

Here is correct wiring:
a) Two wires from switch.
b) Connect timer-blue wire to one of the switch wires. Choose either one for now. You will have to choose other wire if display doesn't light up.
c) Connect timer-black wire to other switch wire.
d) Timer-white wire does NOT connect to either switch wire. Look in back of electric box. There are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. These are neutral wires. Connect timer-white wire to neutral wires. This will power the clock and display.
e) If your box does not have the white wires described in d), then connect timer-white wire to bare ground wire.
f) Turn power ON. Does display light up?
g) If display lights up, switch is wired correctly.
h) If display does not light up, then reverse timer-blue wire and timer-black wire shown in step b) and c).

F9 error code while cleaning. What is broken?


HI, this is a lock switch mechanism failure.


Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong). Check for stuck lock switch.

If the wiring is connected properly, simply replace the door lock switch.

***(It is possible that is is stuck. trying correcting this before purchasing a new switch)---(Highly uncommon)
