I have a Whirlpool solid-state Mark2 top loading washer powers on but just clicks when I push the run button

Pull the unit away from the wall where you can get behind it. Take the access panel off . From the back the control panel. If you have a good multi-meter. Set it on 200 volt AC. Check power at a easily accessible power out let. If you get between 110 and 120 volt reading .your meter is good. Check voltage at starter button with the unit plugged in have someone try the button while you checking for power. If you're not familiar with electrical wiring might have to call someone who is. Chances are your on off switch is bad or the timer is .

Good morning, problem began when timer stopped working at the pin "off" point. Figured a new timer was in order so replaced with a WG1573-5 (same as previous) Timer is T104. Now the problem, when the timer...

Did you buy new timer or new clock motor?
WG1573 is replacement 240v clock motor for T100 series timer.
T100 series is fully repairable and can be maintained to last decades. I've seen operable timer from 1950s.

You can convert T104 240Volt timer into 120V timer by changing clock motor to WG1570 to replace WG1573.

In any case, timer is wired wrong somehow since it seems to cut off one leg of the 240V circuit.
Copy following links for illustrations and troubleshoot and more information than you can use in decades:

Don't grind up your motor.
Connect direct to hot wires and run 240V.

If you only have a Black wire, White wire and a ground wire, you are only wired for 120 volts. For 240 volts you have to have two Black wires or a Black and a Red as well as a White (neutral) and a ground.

That is a Whirlpool module type ice maker that seems to have has been so strict with their information I will need to give the manual's another way about a 5 year life span. I have some manuals but because Whirlpool stopped letting people post what they believe is their property. I guess I need to only understand but if I place them here I will lose my subscription.

Wiring. # 2 is neutral # 3 is hot in. # 1 will be hot out when 6&7close

You are correct.
#3 is Neutral from breaker
#2 is 120Volt Hot from breaker
#1 is Black wire to load
#6 and #7 are activated with a push button

When activation takes place, the timer turns on power to the load
The timer begins a countdown
The load cannot exceed 1 amp
Power to the load remains ON until the timer countdown is finished

If you have ordinary switch instead of a push button, then you turn on the switch, and timer countdown begins after you turn the switch off.

Re-check your wiring. The 2 incoming 240 volt wires from the circuit breaker connect to terminals 1 and 3. The 2 outgoing 240 volt wires going to the load connect to terminals 2 and 4. If it is connected any other way you will get symptoms such as you describe.

The 240 volt timer clock motor is connected internally to terminals 1 and 3, so if you connected the incoming 240 volt wires to say, terminals 1 and 2, then the clock motor is only getting 120 volts. If you inadvertently connected the incoming 240 volt wires to terminals 2 and 4, then the timer clock motor is getting no voltage.

In both cases of mis-wiring stated above, the timer clock motor will start running when the manual lever is in the ON position, and of course, the load will then turn ON.

What is code 42 for a pontiac 6000 and what do i do to fix it

. This is a common code that is often difficult to diagnose and scan tools can't help. The following understanding of how the electronic spark timing (EST) system works - what is taking place and why - is a big step toward a quicker and easier diagnosis of this circuit. When the engine is turning over, but below the run threshold of 400 RPM, the ECM holds the module's bypass voltage too low (0 volts) to energize its solid-state switch (ignition module). Another way of looking at the solid-state switch is to think of it as a relay. When voltage is applied, the relay is energized. With no voltage applied, the relay is de-energized. The pick-up coil/crank sensor pulses are amplified and shaped by the ignition module. These pulses are used to complete the circuit creating a magnetic field in the ignition coils primary winding that, when collapsing, will induce a high voltage in the secondary winding. Therefore, for every crank sensor/pick-up pulse, the coil is triggered. This is known as the bypass mode or module mode of operation. In this mode, the engine is running on the timing advance that is built into the ignition module. With the voltage low on the bypass wire, the EST is pulled to ground through a resistor in the ignition module. This keeps the voltage on the EST wire at around 300 mV. When the ECM sees the RPM over the run threshold, it will then apply 5 volts to the bypass wire that will activate the solid-state switch (relay). This in turn will switch the EST from ground to the base of the transistor that controls the primary coil. In this mode, the primary coil winding is being triggered by the altered signal sent out from the ECM. The ECM will alter the signal to the ignition module and control the timing based on the inputs from various sensors. This is referred to as the EST mode. This is how the system is designed to work! Now let's look at some of the things that can cause problems and set a Code 42. Under 400 RPM, no voltage on the bypass wire, the ECM expects to see low voltage (300 mV) on the EST line during this condition. If it sees 0 volts, indicating an open in the EST circuit - or higher than 500 mV - it sets a Code 42 and stays in the bypass mode. If the bypass line is open, or grounded, the ignition module will not switch to the EST mode. The ignition module needs the bypass voltage to activate the solid-state switch so the EST voltage will be low over 400 RPM and a Code 42 will set. If the EST line is grounded, the ignition module will switch to the EST - but because the line is grounded, there will be no EST signal. A Code 42 will set. To check the ignition module to see if the solid-state switch is capable of switching when the 5 volts are applied, the engine should not be running and the ECM connectors should be disconnected. An ohm meter and test light can be used. With the ohm meter on the EST circuit, it should read less that 500 ohms (in some cases, a lot less). Using a test light to battery voltage, probe the bypass wire. With this voltage applied to the bypass wire, the solid-state switch inside the ignition module should switch and the ohm meter on the EST circuit should go over 5,000 ohms. There is also another way to check this with the engine running: by removing the bypass and the EST wire from the module or ECM, run a jumper from the reference wire to the EST circuit. The reference signal is the signal that is used in the bypass mode to trigger the primary coil voltage. Apply 5 volts from one of the 5-volt reference circuits or a test light to battery voltage. This voltage on the bypass wire will activate the solid-state switch, in turn switching the module. On some models, the 5 volts or test light will have to be applied before starting or the motor will stall when the voltage is applied to the bypass. If the module is switching OK, the car will continue to run on the reference signal. If it stalls, the ignition module is not switching properly. There are some other checks that can be made when working with an intermittent Code 42. When using a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM), there should be 5 volts on the bypass wire. On the EST wire, with the engine running, there will be close to 2.3 volts. The EST is a 5 volt on/off digital signal, so with a volt meter you will see the average of the high and the low. With the EST signal being a digital on/off signal, if you have a meter that will read in Hz, you can also pick up a Hz reading on the EST wire. Normally, you will see about 28 Hz with the engine idling and will increase with RPM. If the EST circuit would become momentarily grounded, or open, the engine will cut out. The voltage reading will jump down to as low as 1.3 volts and the Hz reading will jump from as low as 17 to 128 Hz. If there is a problem in the EST circuit, the voltage on the bypass wire will not change. If the bypass wire is momentarily grounded or open, the reading on the EST wire will be the same as if it was grounding or going open, but unlike a problem on the EST circuit, the bypass voltage will be pulled low if it becomes grounded or goes open. If this happens fast enough, the engine will cut out. The voltages will vary, but the SES light will not come on and no codes will be set. With the EST circuit open, engine running, the voltage will stay low on the bypass wire and the ECM will not put out the 5 volts. With the EST shorted to ground, the voltage on the bypass wire will be high (5 volts) for a very short time (three seconds or less) then the ECM will remove the 5 volts. Using a min/max on the DVOM is the best way to see this voltage. With the bypass open, the EST circuit OK, the ECM will put out the 5 volts. By using a DVOM on both the EST and bypass wire, you can tap on the ECM, wiggle and tug on the wiring to see if the voltage or Hz reading will change. If it does, this is an indication that you have located the problem area.

Freezer stops working as if its stuck in a defrost mode. Stays in this cycle too long and everything in the freezer thaws out. Service people came out and when they removed the inside cover over the coils,...

There is a eight hout defrost timer, bimetal thermostat, and defrost heating element in the defrost circuit. Three parts and the wiring harness.(four)A solid block of ice would be caused by some failure in the defrost system of the unit over a period of 30 days. It is a normal buildup of ice from the humidity in the air when you open and close the doors.... Normally it defrost the evaporator coils for about 20 minutes three times a day(every eight hours)

Newer styles use a defrost control curcuit board instead of a timer, and also use the defrost bimetal thermotat to control the fan in the freezer from not running until bimetal closes arould 30 degrees F

My guess is the water dispenser stops working because when the air flow gets changed by the ice build up of the coils it is causing a freeze in the refrigerator section of the coil loop of water tubing behind the lower fresh food drawers. This may go away with fixing the defrost problem

If the unit has a timer most can be manually turned to defrost (hear a click) to test defrost system. This shuts offf cooling(compressor and condensor fan) I can not tell you without testing which part has failed.Just trying to offer some help, good luck

Dryer just stopped running

2 quick ones come to mind. 1)Check the door limit switch. If it goes open circuit, there will be no operation. 2) Surprisingly, on some driers, there is a hidden fuse in the wiring loom.(referring to the larger driers). If not the problem, does it hum as you press the start?If not, switch off, open panel and trace wiring back and observe for any burned or broken areas.
