If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.

LG WM2016CW When I hit on button it chimes but control panel doesn't light and washer won't start


To determine if the user control and display board is defective, try pressing the buttons on the control panel. If some of the buttons work, but others do not work, the control and display board might need to be replaced. Additionally, if the display is not working, check the power to the user control and display board. If the user control and display board has power, but it isn't working, replace it.
The main control board may also be faulty.

LG frontline washer. WM 2655 hva. Got a PF code which turned into a 3 dash code. Will not reset, powers off within seconds of turning it on. Is it the control board, or control panel?


The fact that the machine powers down leads me to assume that the main control PC board (PWB) is faulty, cannot see the display board being able to shut down the power.

Washer doesn't start / lights up. Breaker is OK, electrical outlet too... What could be the problem ?? Control Board.. Fuse


More than likely it is the computer board. However it can be also caused by the main power switch or the door interlock switch. There is no fuse, the main power supply is part of the computer board. The switches are very easy to check but the front display panel of the dish washer needs to be disassembled as access to the main computer board is required. A multimeter it is also required for the switch verification. Make sure the main power cord of the dishwasher has been unpluged. Removing the front display panel it is not difficult. Once the front display panel is removed you have access to the main power switch and the door interlock switch. Unplug the power cord from the dishwasher and remove the connectors from both switches. Verify continuity on both switches using the multimeter. If you have electronics back ground skills you can also verify if the main computer board has power; for this you need to have both switches connected and the door interlock switch latched. You should be able to measure 110 volts AC on the two wires comming out of the main power switch connecting to the comptuter board.

Good luck!

What part provides power to the conrol panel?


You need to remove top and check for 12v and 5v,( put multimeter leads on wires one at a time) going into display panel from main board. If you see 12v and 5v than display board is very bad.If no voltage at all then main b. is bad or the noise filter fuse is bad.

My maytag Neptune washer mah7500 panel doesn't light up, but still works


Thought it was the door switch/grounding issues/loose wire, etc. Finally found that there was a bad capacitor on the circuit board. It was a 15 cent part that, when replaced, caused all the non-start/power failure indication issues to go away. I've included a picture of the bad part - you can see the slight bulge on the top of the capacitor and a little leakage. Hope this helps. 650c7b72-0a6b-4fe3-b776-b4d9dc5589c2.jpg

No display and no power at all


Possible that the main panel has failed. Remove the panel and check the fuse within, if the fuse blows out again it can be due to faulty or shorted board or drive.

Nstar shut off my power to fix something my washer was on. Now it is not working


Hello iamtubin2 - Try resetting the unit at the household circuit breaker and confirm that there is power to the unit. If there is power and unit will not start you could possibly have a defective control board, cord or wiring. Do you notice any error codes displayed on the control panel or lights blinking? If so, if panel displays "DR", either the door is not closing properly or it may have a defective door lock switch. However, if panel displays "DDO" the drawer is not closing, magnet may be missing or have a defective reed switch. Typically this is not a do it yourself job and it is something that you want a certified professional to install/repair for you due to safety and liability reasons.

My kenmore elite washer has a F 70 displayed? Wha...


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

LG Washer wont start, no power


Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
