HI, Just read your posting and my manual tells me that fault code 49 is a cold water valve fault.Now that means your cold water valve is open circuit or a wire to it is broken or the last thing it could be is your computer board is faulty.Try hot water fill only and see if it fills.Then try you have an electrical test meter ?if you do, i can guide you throe step by step to find the exact cause.hope this helps please reply for further help.

Why is Cabrio dryer still overheating, clothes scorched, thermal fuse blown & replaced, vent line clean, getting AF code thermostats have continuity and heating element new

Hello Wendi & Mike;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If these guys in the parts store should not tell you what the problem is, otherwise they would be in the field repairing the appliances and making good money.

I am sorry you have gone through so much unnecessary expense.

You have not provided a model number which would help me solve the problem.

Anyway, The "AF" code either means Air Flow or Air Fan.

1.) Air fan:
a.) Open the dryer door. Try to rotate the dryer drum by hand. Does it move freely?
b.) With the door open. Hold the door switch in, turn on the dryer, does the drum turn? If so then your motor and fan wheel are good. Your fan wheel may be stuck with lint.

2.) Plugged up with lint:
You have a hot air distribution manifold. This often becomes plugged up especially if you have children or pets. In this case you may smell a burning odor.

3.) High temperature thermal switch and operating switch. These components are on your electric heater housing. Disconnect the wire contacts on these components. Note the color of the wires and where they go. If the two wire are the same color then it makes no difference when you reconnect them. Set your meter on Ohms for tone ring. Check these components.

Go into the following website. Put in your model number. You will get diagrams and part numbers for your dryer components. Purchase them over the internet for about 40-50%

If after checking all of the above, then you have a control board problem. Don't panic! Take the control board part number on the website and search the internet. Sears wanted $265.00 for a control board. I purchase a used/remanufactured board over the internet for $40.00.

I have a Amana tandem dryer Model# NED7300WW1 that is stuck on delicate cycle. Dryer is heating and works but can't change setting. Any idea what it could be be?

Hello. From what you're describing, it sounds like the user interface board(fancy name for control panel) is defective. The part number for it is W10215814 and is #9 on the Pic 1 exploded parts diagram. The sequential pics show the procedure for entering diagnostic mode, interpreting error codes, clearing codes, and testing different parts of the dryer. I hope I helped you!

Why has our washer stopped working through a cycle and why wont it turn on again

The most common problem with AquaSmart is the pump.
The pump has gone bad and blown the motor controller board.
Some AquaSmart machines display the wrong Error code (49)
witch is not the correct code for this problem.
Pump and motor controller board need replacing.
Maybe cheaper to buy a good secondhand machine.

Indesit iwde7168 fault code f01 on drying

Indesit F01 is a board/motor fault, as it is happening on dry I would suggest looking at the board again ensuring there are no other blown solders or indeed the repaired solder connecting to another

Fisher paykel aquasmart fault 49

Fault code 49 is water valves, But the Aqua-Smart board is outputting the wrong code here, The Smart pump has blown the water valves fuse, A common thing in Aqua-Smart Machines.
The Smart pump has jammed with lint and caused over current to the board and taken out parts on the board that drive the pump.
Best to get a new/recondition board for your machine.

Musty/Mildew smelling clothes...

lg has a known problem with smelly mildew cloths. If you call LG they will tell you its not there problem. Cheapest solution is to wash door gasket with some clorox and then betwen washes leave door open. On the washing supply shelves there is a product you put in the washing machine run a wash without cloths and it does the same thing except it costs $7.If you bought it a t Lowes go back and ***** to store manager my friend did exactly that and got the machinje replaced

Maytag Bravos Steam dryer that reads service error code F1

F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...,wkwdftgtbkdgfrwxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ksrttqdqrxkssrqtgsd/1/1303472/5961857/image12917img-or.jpg

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.,wkwdffkrdwtbgwsxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ksskgsfwrxksrttqdqr/1/1303472/5961857/image12923img-or.gif
