Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

No power I know about the error issues and they seem to be intermittent. I have found that if you just unplug for a time, it seems to "reboot" or something and it will work after that. The problem I am having now is that after using it all day, it just stopped. I mean no power or anything. I am wondering if there is a reset switch or maybe a fuse. I unfortunately cannot find my manual but I will tear the house apart if I have to or look online. Please advise.

No fuse or reset but there is a power filter at rear, main input goes there first then to board. make sure if you are checking cables at main control board they are only in marked ports, some ports are unused but match a keyed connector.
control boards are common problems in whirlpool built machines

How do I solve error 42?


Precor Error Code 42 Error Code: 42 Manufacturer: Precor
Model: All Models
Error Description: Error 42, Lift Position Value Out of Range. Error 42 is displayed when the lift position reported by the lift position potentiometer is found to be outside its set limits.
If an Error 42 has occurred, it is important to know the physical position of the lift when the error occurred. It is possible the lift is physically out of range or jammed. In this case, the Error 42 is a secondary symptom and the issue should be approached as an Error 40. Possible Reason:
  1. Bad or intermittent connection in the lift motor controller.
  2. The lift motor requires calibration.
  3. The lift motor potentiometer is bad.
  4. The lower PCA to upper PCA cable is bad.
  5. The lower PCA is bad.
  6. The upper PCA is bad.
Recommended Action:
  1. Intermittent connections can be difficult to locate. If the Error 42 condition is intermittent, a connection issue is probably the cause. This is definitely true if the Error 42 occurred while the lift was within its normal physical range. Inspect the lift potentiometer connector and repair connection if necessary. If the intermittent connection cannot be found or corrected, replace the lift motor. A lift calibration number of 0 or 255 indicates an open or shorted potentiometer connection. This means the problem could be anywhere between the lift motor and the upper PCA. Typically it can be identified and tracked using an ohmmeter.
  2. Using the appropriate service manual for the unit being tested, refer to the lift calibration procedure. If the information in the service manual doesn't match the lift position/physical lift position of the unit, recalibrate the lift motor. [Something caused the lift motor to be out of calibration. Investigate for cause and correct. Simply recalibrating the lift motor will not solve the problem.]
  3. If the lift calibration number is not 0 or 255 and does not change when the lift motor turns, replace the lift motor.
  4. Check continuity of the interconnect cable or swap with a known good interconnect cable to verify if cable is bad.
  5. Swap the lower PCA with a known good lower PCA to verify if the lower PCA is bad.
  6. Swap the upper PCA with a know good upper PCA to verify if the upper PCA is bad.

Acer AL2216W DVI not working after connecting to a laptop


I have had an issue on 3 separate occasions where 3 separate Acer monitors would give me a no signal error after being plugged into a laptop. I have found that taking them apart, and then unplugging the main power line from the power supply to the mainboard seems to correct this issue. It may be some kind of power spike that causes this. I am not really sure though. just thought I would post something about it since I couldn't find any posts about the same issue but it has happened to me 3 times. Figured someone out there might find this helpful.

Electrolux dishwasher not completing wash cycle and all lights flashing on door control panel and the 'wash pump' error light behind the lower kick space panel was flashing.


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

After researching the issue you are having with your Electrolux dishwasher it is possible that resetting your appliance may help. I would disconnect power from your dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. -T

Zalman RSSC driver problem


you may have to use the "safely remove hardware" icon in the system tray to turn off the USB module before unplugging it as it could be causing a power spike, also this could result in more permernant damage.

I have an intermittent disappearing Pioneer DVR-K17B drive


I took my laptop to a friend who pointed out that Microsoft's online FixIt feature only has "single fix" capability. The error is most likely caused by conflicts in the registry between different applications which use the optical drive, like HP QuickPlay, Nero, iTunes etc. He said what I needed was an "Expert" FixIt tool which would be able to fix multiple conflicts at the same time (only available offline to Microsoft Certified "Expert" Tech people) - hope that helps point you in the right direction, SMK.

Computer Does not Boot correctly, Monitor is Black.


Very interesting...Might try the following...
- Video. Yes, almost garuntee that it is either the video card/onboard or the cable. Look at the cable and cable connectors and see if one of the pins has been shoved in. This is common. Often, one will replace the cable and still have the problem because a pin has been shoved in on the mother board.
- Power. Remove everything from your computer except the keyboard and the monitor (yes, even the mouse) to eliminate any power drain issues. If you can, remove the DVD drive (unplug power and data bus cable).
- BIOS. One beep is good. You should be able to get into the BIOS setup no mater what other problems you are having. The BIOS uses a generic text, video and keyboard driver. If you aren't able to see ANYTHING after the beep then it is definately the route from the motherboard through the video card or onboard video, through the cable to the screen. You seem to be going through the right steps to debug but just haven't found it yet because it is something that you have dismissed as working...like the pins on the video connector. Go through your path again, this time look at anything that you have assumed that was working and suspect it as the issue.
