If you haven't tried to connect the controllers with a usb try that 1st then do a

HARD RESET
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch. (60GB if no sitch unplug it then plug it back in after a few sec.)
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

We have a whirlpool duet front load dryer, why does it beep during a cycle?? when clothes are still wet?


You can perform some Whirlpool electric dryer timer troubleshooting to determine if the timer is faulty or if the cause is somewhere else within the dryer.
  1. Access the Timer
    • Unplug the Whirlpool dryer power cord from the dryer electrical outlet. The timer is inside the control panel on the top of the dryer. Pull the dryer away from the back wall so that the control console can be raised without hitting the wall.
      Remove the single screw on each end of the control console that secures the control console housing to the top of the dryer. Grab the sides of the control console and raise the front of the console up and toward the rear of the dryer. With the control console in the service position you will now be able to test the timer.
    Test the Timer
    • Locate the dryer timer inside the control console. It will be directly behind the dryer timer control knob. There are two wires that connect from the dryer to the dryer timer. Place a piece of masking tape on each wire and write on the tape what terminal each wire attaches. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the wires from the terminal ends on the timer.
      Set the scale on a volt-ohm meter to the RX1 setting to measure the ohms of the timer. Place one probe to one terminal and the other probe to the remaining terminal. You should get a reading between 2,000 ohms and 3,000 ohms. If you do not get this reading, replace the timer.
    Replacing the Timer
    • Pull the control knob off of the timer shaft on the face of the control console. Remove the two screws that secure the timer to the inside of the control console. Pull the timer out and take the timer with you to an appliance repair facility. Compare the new timer to the old timer to make sure that the mounting screws match.
      Place the new timer inside the console and secure the timer with the two retaining screws. Attach the wires to the timer and remove the masking tape from the wires. Lower the control console and reattach the console to the top of the dryer with the retaining screws. Push the control knob back over the timer shaft. Push the dryer back against the wall and plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

Control pad


Control pad's are generally all or nothing devices, they either work or they're dead. However with a console of this vintage there are a few things that can cause this kind of issue and therefor a couple things you can do to try and resolve it. 1: Clean the serial ports and plugs (the ports and plugs that connect the pads to the console) with an air duster. Air dusters are cans of compressed air with a long nozzle and are available from most computer, electronics and hardware stores. Clean both serial ports even if you're only using one. 2: if cleaning doesn't work try unplugging the power cable, removing the console's casing and touching a hot soldering iron to the base of each of the pins that connect the serial ports to the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) in tern to re-solder them without using any extra solder, if you find that you do need more solder be sparing. You can see a pictorial guide to disassembling a Sega Genesis here www.takeitapart.net/archives/sega-genesis/ click the pictures to see a larger image. Lastly if you know anyone else who's in to retro-gaming swap a control pad with them to see if your pad works on there Sega Genesis and there pad works on yours. If you find the pad actually is dead it's not the end of the world, there are a few around on popular auction sites, retro gaming sites and specialist game stores pretty cheaply.

To Access/replace the CCU:

#1

Unplug the Whirlpool Cabrio power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine. Pull the washer away from the wall so that you can access the screws behind the control console. Remove the hex head screws securing the control console to the washer with a nut driver. The screws are on the lower rear edge of the control console.
#2

Lift the control console up, and rotate the console forward so that the face of the console is resting on the top of the washer. Locate the interface board cable connector to the right of the plastic tube on the back of the console. Pull the end of the connector straight out of the control console. The primary machine control is the box that the plastic tube connects.
#3

Place small pieces of masking tape around the nine wires connecting to the primary machine console. Label the wire locations onto the masking tape with a pencil. Grasp each wire at the connector with your fingers, and pull the wires away from the primary control. Pull the plastic tube out of the primary control.
#4

Locate the nut toward the bottom of the primary control. Remove the nut with a nut driver. Lift the front of the primary control slightly, and slide it down to disengage the retaining clips. Pull the primary control out of the control console. Insert the new primary control into the control console. Slide the primary control up to engage the lower clips. Secure the primary control to the console with the single hex head screw.
#5

Push each of the wire connectors into their respective positions on the primary control until they lock into place. Push the plastic tube hose over the port on the right side of the primary control. Remove the small pieces of masking tape from the wires.
#6

Position the control console back upright on the top of the washer. Secure the control console to the washer with the three hex head retaining screws. Slide the washer back against the wall. Turn on the water supply and plug the washer into the wall outlet.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.23034101

Look at the section for the Machine Base.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load washers use a set of springs between the top and base of the tub, along with a set of vibration pads to control vibration and walking of the machines.

It's possible that one or more of the springs has come off or the pads have worn enough that the top frame is rubbing against the lower frame.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual to better see how these springs / pads are used.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

You will have to remove the cabinet to get to the springs / pads. Here is a description of how to do it.

It appears that your washer may not have end caps on the console that remove. If so, slip a thin putty knife under the ends of the console to release the clips that hold it to the cabinet.

Want to connect non wireless remote controls to console


No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped
