Re: Maytag Washer model# mah3000aww
Out of curiosity why did you replace the wax motor?? did you also replace the machine control board behind the console??? usually thats the issue with this machine is one or the other goes bad and recommend fix is to replace both.A quick visiuall check will determine if htis needs replacing as well, theres athermisotr the blows out). you say you get power to the wax motor, so it should then energize pushing forward into the next to switches, firs one locks door and put on indicator light, the second is actually the spin switch that needs to be activated for the machine to enter a high speed spin

If your evaporator motor is not working, you are so correct. The air circulated in the refrigerator is due to the evaporator motor fan. If left to operate without a fan to provide a heat load for your compressor, it could cause your compressor to fail. Your problem is most likely the defrost sensor inside the cover of your evaporator. It is probably stuck open and will not put power to your evaporator fan. Take you model number to Searspartsdirect.com and find the defrost sensor for your refrigerator and replace it.
Hope this helps
I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer not spinning and making a grinding sound as if something were stripped. I also see that changing out the door lock and switch assembly, did not help the issue.
I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose what is causing the grinding sound and better assist in resolving the grinding sound. Hope this helps.
You have a bad bi-metal switch. Turn off the refrigerator unscrew the back panel of the freezer use a hair dryer to melt the ice on the evaporator coils there should be something that looks like a coin clipped to one of the coils. There is wax holding the wires into that switch if the wax has popped up or open that switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
Unplug the machine for 30 minutes and try again. If the error code returns you will need to replace the door lock assembly. Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.
Replace the door lock assembly on the washer. Refer to your washer manual for the correct part numbers.
Check to see if your Bosch washer is still covered under warranty. If so, you could receive free replacement parts and service for the faulty door locks.

Small fan in freezer, it should start working after opening the freezer door for a couple of minutes. If it does not start, use a pen or pencil to turn the blades, if it kick in, replace motor.
Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure the air duct going to the fridge is clear. Once this is done, restart unit
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.
A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.
It spins only with the lid closed
For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.
