Power Switch - Washer

The electronic power switch has stopped working - well it works intermittently and my kids just keep jabbing until they get it to turn on. Can I replace the switch? How much is that part? My warranty expired and I didn't get an extended one...mistake.

I just want to say the this set of laundry appliances is the worst I have ever purchased. If I could afford another set, I would throw them away. Wrinkled clothes, not really clean, constant load balance problems, had the lid lock problem, the error codes, constant AF problem on the dryer....just **** - I wish I had saved $1000 and bought a basic set.

Thanks,

I feel your pain, Amy. I've worked on this appliance and have experienced all the error codes and load balance problems, you've explained. There are many of you that wish they had not spent the extra money on this set.

Your problem is more than likely the User Interface Control board located under the console. Unfortunately, the power switch is not a separate part of the board. The board is sold as one assembly and what typically happens is one or more of the small buttons wear out (usually the ones used more frequently). Replacing the board is simple if you wish to pursue a repair on your own and avoid unnecessary labor charges.

You can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your COMPLETE model number. There are several variations of your washer listed, so make sure you type in the model number correctly. The part you need can be found under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 7 (part #8564290). The card is not cheap. It runs around $113.

To replace the board follow these simple steps:

1. UNPLUG washer.
2. Loosen the three screws in the back of the control panel.
3. The control panel will lift from the back first, then off. Be careful not to damage the small interface cable that connects the control panel to the main control board.
4. Disconnect the interface connector and remove the control knob on the front of the panel by pulling straight out.
5. Place the control panel face down on a padded surface (like a stack of towels) and remove the series of screws that hold the Interface Control Board in place.
6. Carefully remove the plastic cover from the circuit board. It is held in place by a series of tabs.
7. Install new circuit board, using care NOT to handle the surface of the board with your hands. Handle the sides of the circuit to minimize the possibily of damage caused by static.
8. Install rear cover and reconnect the interface cable.
9. Re-install control panel by inserting the front section in the grooves on top of the washer first, then lower towards the back.
10. Tighten all screws and re-install control knob.

It's not a difficult repair at all. If you do not wish to order parts on line, you can use the part number provided and go to your nearest applaince parts retailer to see if it may be available. I hope this helps. Please post back if you have any questions, or require further assistance.

2005 ford escape wiper and washer has no power. cant hear it engage when on but was working a week ago. how can i troubleshoot it and find the fuse


Hi Justin , Do you know what a SJB - smart junction box is and where it is located on you escape ?
Windshield Wiper Operation
The smart junction box (SJB) supplies power to the multifunction switch from the SJB fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position. The multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor for the HIGH or LOW/INTERMITTENT input, depending on the multifunction switch position selected. The SJB also supplies power directly to the windshield wiper motor from fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position for RUN/PARK operation. When the multifunction switch is in the LOW, HIGH, or INTERMITTENT position, power is supplied to the windshield wiper motor, which moves the wipers off the park position. Once the wipers are off the park position, an internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches to the run/park position which directs power to the wiper switch then back to the wiper motor. This maintains power to the windshield wiper motor to complete the wipe cycle. When the cycle is complete, the internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches back to the park position. If the multifunction switch is in the LOW or HIGH position, power is supplied from the multifunction switch and another wipe cycle starts. If the multifunction switch is in the INTERMITTENT position, the windshield wipers remain parked until the internal relay in the multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor. The internal relay supplies power after a time delay that is determined by the 1 of 9 intermittent switch settings.

I replaced a lid switch on a whirlpool washer wtw4815ew1 & accidently slid the part to the locked position. Now flashes the lock button intermittently. I've tried to reset it 5 x's. What can I do?


What often works on a computer might work on your washer. Disconnect the machine from the power and leave it for a while, disconnect the new switch and then power up the machine. Disconnect from the power again and reset and reconnect the switch and then power up the machine again.

Hope it works for you, very sorry if it doesn't...

Winshield wiper delay intermitent module making noises


The wiper delay is in the steering column. It's a small box about 2 x 2 inches with a wiring harness attached. With the testing procedures I found below, you should be able to figure it out. I found wiper delays on eBay for around $10 to $20. Good luck.

WINDSHIELD WIPERS CHEROKEE, COMANCHE & WAGONEER 1. POWER INPUT Remove circuit breaker. Test battery side of circuit breaker. If battery voltage is not present, repair open to splice. Test across circuit breaker terminals. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, replace circuit breaker. 2. GROUND Connector A unplugged. Test terminal G. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, repair open to ground. 3. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Ignition switch in ACCY. Remove delay module and plug connectors together from the module. If wiper operate in LO and HI speed modes and mist (washer) is working, if wipers and mist operate, replace intermittent module. If not go to step 4. 4. WIPER/WASHER SWITCH Ignition in RUN, wiper switch position as indicated, back probe switch side of connector A for standard, connector B for intermittent: Test connector terminal E-wiper switch in LO and mist/intermittent. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. test connector terminal C-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. Test connector terminal F-wiper switch to OFF. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero (0), system is working fine. If this does not occur, replace switch. 5. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Connector B unplug. Test across terminal A and D while rotating switch from minimum to maximum delay. If tester reading is not between 0-500 ohms, replace switch. Test across terminal A and G while rotating switch from minimum delay to maximum delay. If tester reading is between 0 and 500 ohms, replace wiper module. If not replace switch. 6. WIPER MOTOR Ignition in ACCY, wiper switch position as indicated, probe connector D. Test connector terminal 1. If resistance is no zero (0) ohms,repair open to ground. Test connector terminal 4-wiper switch in any position. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. if is not repair open from fuse panel. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in LO. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 5-wiper switch OFF with voltmeter connected. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero, system is OK, replace motor. If not, repair open from wiper switch.

How do you test the lid switch on this model?


Turn machine on. Let it fill and run. open lid and it should stop agitating switch is working. All that switch does is directs power to the motor. I bypassed my switch by connecting the wires together with a connector. It's a safety thing so little kids will not get hurt when lid is open.

It doesn't work at all If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: No power Lid switch No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer 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 washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

My windshield wipers wont turn on


This information is out of my manual, I hope it helps you, Ian
WIPERS/WASHERS
DESCRIPTION
FRONT WIPER/WASHER SYSTEM
The windshield wipers can be operated with the
windshield wiper switch when the ignition switch is
in the RUN or ACCESSORY positions. The windshield
wiper system is protected by a 30 amp fuse (9)
located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) part
of the Integrated Power Module (IPM) in the engine
compartment. The wiper/washer switch is integral to
the multi-function switch. It is a resistive MUX
switch that sends inputs to the BCM to operate the
wiper/washer system.
REAR WIPER/WASHER SYSTEM
The rear windshield wiper and washers can be
operated when the ignition switch is in the RUN or
ACCESSORY positions.
OPERATION
FRONT WIPER/WASHER SYSTEM
The windshield washer circuit is protected by a 9
amp PTC located in the Junction Block. The wiper
motor has permanent magnetic fields. The speeds are
determined by current flow to the appropriate set of
brushes inside the motor. The current flow is controlled
by the multi-function switch stalk mounted
wiper switch, high speed/low speed relays located in
the Power Distribution Center (PDC) part of the
Integrated Power Module (IPM) in the engine compartment.
The speed sensitive intermittent wiper is
controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). The
intermittent mode, with the vehicle traveling greater
than 10.4 mph, has a range of 0.5 to 18 seconds.
With the vehicle traveling less than 10.4 mph, and
the time delay is not adjusted, time delay doubles to
a range of 1 to 36 seconds. The wiper arms will park
at the base of the windshield just above the cowl
cover after the wiper switch is turned OFF.
WIPERS/WASHERS (Continued)
The windshield wiper motor and linkage is located
in an integral wiper unit at the rear of the engine
compartment. The wiper unit must be removed to
gain access to the wiper motor.
REAR WIPER/WASHER SYSTEM
When continuous rear wiper operation is required,
the Body Control Module (BCM) will provide ignition
ON voltage to the rear wiper motor. When the wiper
switch is turned OFF, the BCM provides circuit
ground to operate the motor until the wipe cycle is
complete and the wiper arm returns to the base of
the rear window.
When intermittent rear wiper mode is selected, the
wiper motor will cycle every 7 seconds. The intermittent
delay time is also adjusted based upon vehicle
speed. With the vehicle traveling greater at 50 mph,
the cycle changes to every 5 seconds. DIAGNOSIS
AND TESTING
DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - FRONT WIPER
SYSTEM
The windshield wiper system operates in several
modes:
† Low and high speed normal wipe
† Speed sensitive intermittent wipe
† Wipe after wash
† Pulse wipe
† Park (switch OFF)
The windshield wiper circuits are continuously
monitored and controlled by the Body Control Module
(BCM). If a problem occurs in the electronic components,
wiring, switch (except integral motor park
switch) and wiper motor a Diagnostic Trouble Code
(DTC) will be stored in the BCM memory. DTC’s can
be retrieved using a DRB IIIt scan tool. Refer to the
proper Body Diagnostic Procedures manual for DTC
descriptions and retrieval information.
The windshield wiper park switch and circuit is
monitored by the BCM. The park switch and circuit
can be tested using the Wiper System Diagnosis
table.
DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - REAR WIPER
SYSTEM
The rear window wiper system operates in several
modes:
† Continuous wipe
† Intermittent wipe
† Wash
† Wipe after wash
The windshield wiper circuits are continuously
monitored and controlled by the Body Control Module
(BCM). If a problem occurs in the electronic components,
wiring, switch (except integral motor park
switch) and wiper motor a Diagnostic Trouble Code
(DTC) will be stored in the BCM memory. The
DTC(s) can be retrieved using a DRB IIIt scan tool.
