If the compressor doesn't run , but the fan next to it does , then the board is the problem . If you can remove the board , and turn it over , look under the small black boxes , but on the soldered side , and you should see a spot where the solder has heated and moved away from the small terminal . "Resolder" this spot , and reinstall the board and the compressor should come on .

    If you saw a black spot on one of the resistors (one right above another ) then one of the fan motors probably isn't working , therefore , replacing the board , is the only "fix" .

Hotpoint WMA64 Won't heat up


Thermistor is resistance which changes in value when it is hot. So this acts as a thermocouple.
In this case it is possible that the power control has failed from the board, it can be due to damaged connectors or links. Use a meter to test the continuity.

I have a Bosch SHU9955US/14 (Integra) dishwasher. There is currently a 0 with and asterisk showing on the display and the unit will not run.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

This is the 3rd time I have had this problem, my Neptune sensor touch pad dryer will not start, it reads 8.8 on the display. If I unplug the unit so that only one side has power (110), when you open the...


We have the same Maytag Dryer MDE5500AYW and after reading a few posts of possible fixes--Turn Power Off them back On to reset---Replace Control Board-- Then I saw APPLY HEAT to the panel control area AND IT WORKS. I put a small heater on the dryer top in front of the Control Board Panel Readout and after it warmed up the 88 went out and when I pushed Start It Works.

I think that cold weather has something to do with the problem. In Dallas it is 42 degrees outside and 70 degrees inside But the dryer vent is connected through the outside insulated brick wall and the cold air coming forom the outside vent makes the inside of the dryer COLD until the dryer is in operation.

Long story short--I will keep the heater handy in case It is needed until the weather warms up.

GSSs5JEMC won't get cold


Cool, Sounds like a loose connection or a weak solder point on the board. Did you wiggle that heat sink or a connector. Just make sure all the connectors are firmly in place and not loose, especially the ones that provide power to the compressor. Board may have to be replace if a component is loose...or you can try to resolder if your comfortable doing that kind of stuff.

F11 flashing kenmore he washer


The F11 error code indicates a serial communication failure. This happens when the 2 main control boards are unable to communicate with each other. This is either caused by a loose wiring harness connection or one of the control boards is defective. Good luck and please rate FixYa!

Remote issue


Loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of your remote to malfunction.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. Try to resolder the solder joint so it works normal again..

Freezer works, fan works, fridge side not getting cold


Whip, make sure the condensor fan is running in back. It should be running anytime the compressor is running. Check to see if you have a buildup of frost on the back of the freezer panel, this could indicate a defrost issue. This refer is controlled by one main mother board in back. Check these things first and post back. You may have to do some tests on the board...Catriver..post back.
