SOURCE: Lr code

sometime resistor are a bit under valued and can burn up. Dont worry about your door lock. remember Lr stands for locked rotor.????? check the winding on your motor and never over look the pump. Have a visual inside the pump for blockage look for any shorts on your washing machine. I was told they have a ten year warranty on the motor. I always test all the conponents on a w/machine before I test it. lookup this site to see if your maytag is still under warranty????

SOURCE: MAH5500BWW model fuse blown

You probably need the motor conversion kit 12002039. This Neptune motor / motor control board has a high failure rate. To determine this you need to remove the front cover and inspect the motor control board near the floor on right side for burnt components or a blown 10 amp fuse. If you have burnt components or a blown fuse then your motor control board has failed and needs to be replaced. See for Neptune disassembly pictures and other neptune information.

SOURCE: Blows 6 amp fuse in top panel. On spin cycle runs the pump but motor wont rotate for spin. If left blows fuse again.

Remove the hoses and check the impeller of the pump for an obstruction.

SOURCE: I just purchased a kenmore

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

The error is an indication a motor speed problem. You will need to check the following:

- Check the wiring harness. Verify all connections between the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU).

NOTE: The MCU is a circuit board located in the vicinity of the Drive Motor on the bottom rear of the washer. To access the MCU, you will need to remove the back panel of the washer.

NOTE: The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located behind the wash tub. You will need to remove the top panel to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will slide back, then lift off.

- Check the Drive Motor. Perform a continuity check of the Drive Motor windings. Remove the connector plug and check across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 3. All readings should be approximately 6 ohms. HINT: You can also take this reading by removing connector 2 from the MCU and measuring across pins 1, 2 and 3. If the readings are good, this will also prove the wiring and connector good.

- Check the MCU. The connectors are numbered 1 to 3 (L to R). That is, with the MCU installed, connector 1 is on the bottom, followed by 2 in the middle, and 3 on top.

Connector 1 - is the serial communications link between the MCU and CCU and has three wires. At the opposite end, this will be the 2nd connector from the rear on the left-hand side of the CCU.
Connector 2 - is the link between the MCU and the Drive Motor. Pins 1, 2, and 3 on this connector are the Drive Motor windings. Pins 4 and 5 are for the tachometer.
Connector 3 - is the primary power connector. Pins 1 to 2 should read 120VAC with the door in the locked position. Pin 3 is ground. At the opposite end, this is the 4th connector from the right on the front of the CCU.

NOTE: All the connector pins are numbered R to L.

If your continuity readings are normal for the Drive Motor and you have verified all connectors, replace the MCU.

If any of the Drive Motor windings indicate readings higher that 6 ohms, replace the Drive Motor.

Why would the fuse to fuel pump burn when i try to start my 98 ford ranger

Short to ground, or short to the positive side of the starter solenoid between solenoid and Starter positive lead. "electricity follows the path of least resistance". See if you an run a tempory positive from battery to the fuel pump (after disconecting fuel pump and it will run. Or if you have an ohm meter check the resistance between ground and it's positive terminal disconnected from it's power lead. If it shows no resistance there is an internal short to grown and thus blowing fuse. If shows some resistance, it should be good. Measure resistance of the positive lead to the fuel pump still disconnected and ground. If zero, that lead is pinched and grounded to the frame thus blowing fuse. This lead connects to what is known as fuel pump relay. That may be the problem too. Good luck.

Why does my solenoid fuse keeps blowing. We have changed starters, but fuse still blows after 12 or so crankings. What to try next?

If the solenoid is separate from the starter, the coil may have a few shorted turns which could cause that kind of problem.
It shouldn't need or draw more than a few amperes.
If you have a multimeter, the coil resistance should measure 2.5-4 Ohms after subtracting meter lead resistance of ~ 0.3-0.6 Ohms .

My 2003 suburban rear blower not working replaced blow it works jumped out check resister I have 12 v going to the resister but ony 1.7 volts to blower replaced resister worked for a week then stoped...

If your original blower burned up, or if the original resistor failed, it is likely that some of the wires leading to the resistor and blower BURNED slightly in the process, and will need to be replaced all the way back to where they connect to the fuse block. (The wires may have been pinched or otherwise damaged somewhere, so they no longer carry the amount of current required, causing the resistor to fail due to a low-voltage over-current condition.) Sadly a failed resistor can also burn the motor out. Check the windings of the motor (via the connector) using an ohmmeter to see if it is still good.

You need to check each component that is on that fuse for a short. You can disconnect them all and put a fresh fuse in. If it doesn't blow immediately, plug the components back in one at a time (with the key on) and check the fuse each time. When it blows, you will know which component is faulty.

Heater and defroster blower not working. There is no sound and no air blowing out of vents at any mode of operation.

Check the fuses first and make sure you have power to that fuse. Also check to see that you have power to the control switch if you have power there then it may be the fan motor.

No fuse. Newer vehicles have BCM Body Control Modules. Everything is computer controlled. Take it to a shop.

Dryer will run for a couple of minutes and will stop/ Pops the fuse. We are getting the Power failure code. Kenmore Elite Smartheat quiet pack 9

It sound's like the motor might be going bad, the dryer motor may be drawing to much current during operation causing the fuse to blow, check the motor to see if it spin's with little or no resistance, also turn the drum by hand to make sure it spin's freely, or it could be a short in the wiring that's causing the fuse to blow, check the wiring for a frayed or damaged wire, or for a wire that may be making contact with the shell of the dryer.
