    Same Problem! Worked fine, then when I opened door to put my last load in, there was a flash - thought it was the light, which actually was burned out too, but it won't start and when I run the diagnostics, I get the "3E" error message. Help!

I did get this fixed. In the end it was simply a clogged vent port which blew the thermal fuse.

thanks

Whirlpool dryer model #gew9200lw0 has a " control locked " indicator light on and it won't start


To toggle the Control Lock on and Off on the GEW9200LW0, press and hold the End of Cycle signal button for 3+ seconds. You should see the indicator light go off and hear a single beep. The Control Lock is useful when you clean the control panel or to stop small children from accidentally starting the dryer with a sibling or pet in the unit.

The Control Lock function is described on page 19 of the user manual. You can find the manual here at the Whirlpool manuals site, https://www.whirlpool.com/services/manuals.html , or the product site at Sears Parts Direct, https://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/gew9200lw0-whirlpool-parts-manual . The direct link to the manual is currently: https://www.whirlpool.com/content/dam/global/documents/200209/owners-manual-3979274-RevB.pdf or https://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0409510.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Sears kenmore elite has a message display to enter tcp code. kenmore microwave oven


TCP is "True Cook Plus" in Kenmore speak.
Here is a cut/paste of a section of the manual.

*CUSTOMIZING TrueCookPlus' You may find that you prefer TrueCookPlus® to cook your food more or less. TrueCookPlus " can adjust to your tastes - to cook your food hotter or cooler - automatically: Example Clear 1. Press the Clear button. (§H§ 1 2. Press the TrueCookPlus® button twice. 3. If you want less cooking time when you enter a TrueCookPlus code, press 1. This will decrease the time by 6%. 345 4. If you want more cooking time when you enter a TrueCookPlus® code: Press 3 for 3% more cooking time. Press 4 for 6% more cooking time. Press 5 for 9% more cooking time. 2 5. Press 2 to reset TrueCookPlus* to factory setting default time. 6. Press the Start button.
I didn't try to clean up the copy
Hope this makes sense and helps.

How do I reset my washing machine?


Sounds like a control problem. Try googling your make and model of appliance followed by "service manual". Most newer, digital controlled appliances have a "secret" service menu where you can check for error codes, stuck buttons, bad sensors and such. Download the tech manual and start troubleshooting. Or you can call an appliance repair tech to come out and do the same thing for a fee.

Code in digital display does not have a E in front of it


Please let me know if you can get a number after this - if so what number shows up?


Model differences:
• Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
In the Better Models line, the failure codes will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter
or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control indicator lights will flash.
Example: E14. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause Cancel button. The error code remains
stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer. If the failure is something
that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate normally the next time it is
started.
In the Good Models line, the control signals the failure code by flashing the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse,
Final Spin and Control for the first number or letter after the E and the Start indicator light for the second number or letter
after the E. When a failure occurs, the washer stops or pauses and the control beeps and flashes the five indicator lights to tell
the customer that a failure has occurred. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause Cancel button.
The error code remains stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer.
If the failure is something that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate
normally the next time it is started.
To recall an error code,
• Wake the machine by pressing any button
• Wait 5 seconds
• Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously
• All LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking
LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.
Please Note the following...... on a small number of washers with serial number prefix XC4,
if the previous procedure does not perform as specified, follow the option below:
• Follow all previous steps but instead of pressing Start and Pause Cancel buttons,
press and hold Options and Pause Cancel buttons.
If the washer is a Better Model, the error code will appear in the display. Troubleshoot problem by using charts on the
following pages.
If the washer is a Good Model, the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control will flash the
number of times for the first digit of the code and the Start indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
Take
separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice
indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START
indicator light start flashing at the same time.
The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code as long as the two buttons are pressed and held.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine:
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code F1: the first digit would be 15 and the second digit would be 1. If this code would appear on a washer in the
Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink fifteen times and the START indicator light would blink once.

I have a whirlpool electric dryer Model No. GEW9200 and lights come on, it appears to be sensing moisture content, but the drum won't turn


The cause of the problem is either a blown thermal fuse, a faulty belt switch (loose or worn out belt), a faulty door switch, or a faulty machine control board. Activate the "Diagnostic Test Mode" to determine which you should check first to avoid unnecessary disassembly of the machine.

Diagnostic Test Mode Activation Procedure
  1. Unplug the machine for fifteen minutes.
  2. Make sure the machine stays in standby mode when it is plugged back. That is, no indicator light is on.
  3. Press the following button sequence within five seconds: More time>Less time>More time>Less time
  4. All of the indicators on the console should light on and "88" is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display panel. It means no fault is detected and the belt switch is faulty or the belt is worn. Replace whichever is necessary to be replaced.
  • If E1 or E2 flashes on the display, the thermistor has failed and the thermal fuse is open. Replace both.
  • If E3 flashes on the display, there is a fault in the machine control board. Check the board for loose connections or replace it.
  • Open and close the door. There should be a "beep" everytime the door is closed and opened and "OE" is displayed whenever the door is opened. The door switch is faulty if no "beep" is heard or if "OE" is displayed even when the door is closed. Check the wiring harness connection or replace the door switch assembly.
Please inform me about the result of the test to give you the exact repair/replacement procedure.

New Motor Control Board


You say nothing happens when you press srart but then you say about reading the fault codes. So if there is beeping and fault codes then it must be doing something. Describe exactly what happens, step by step. What do you mean by the new board is same number but not the same? What is different? Recheck the wiring, especially the hot & cold inlet valves.
