Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

No Power Repairman is preparing to change control board and if that does not work, he will replace interface. Why should this problem be occuring in a 4 year old Duet machine that is only used for two people? What is the answer to this problem short of buying extended warranty?

One can cause the other to fail but that is rare
If the control board is not the problem then why would he change both?? sounds like a parts changer

    Same problem as above, Whirlpool Duet Dryer, family of two. Purchased on 12/26/2006. We purchased the extended "4 year" warranty and of course, since the warranty is up - the dryer is giving us trouble. The technician I had come out and look at the dryer; pressed on the "CONTROL ON" button and decided that the board was the issue. I could have done this, as I have, and saved myself $75 for the service call. At the cost of a replacement board, probably not worth the money. The front loading machines may look great, but they are definitely not economical to repair. I am going back to the old fashiond machines when the dryer finally just quits working! Very disappointed in the quality of the Whirlpool!

Shortly after end of 1 year warranty, KEMS378SSS04 began displaying F6E0 Lost Communication on lower over UI (not on the microwave). Turning power off/on (multiple times required sometimes) fixes the...


Hi,

Below is the complete instruction sheet.

You are having a communication error between the appliance. Here is the actual tech manual instructions for that code:

PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter Diagnostic

mode and verify the error codes. Ensure AM software, UI software and EEPROM

CHECKSUM versions appear on the lower text line. If AM software and EEPROM

versions do not appear, UI and AM may not be communicating. Verify this for the

lower oven UI and for the microwave (upper oven) UI. The lower oven UI will show

the AM software version for the lower oven appliance manager, and the microwave

UI will show the AM software and EEPROM versions for the microwave appliance

manager.

If the lower oven UI is not displaying the AM software version, go to UI IS NOT

DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION.

If the upper oven UI is not displaying the AM software and EEPROM versions,

go to UPPER OVEN UI IS NOT DISPLAYING THE AM SOFTWARE AND

EEPROM VERSIONS.

If lower oven UI and microwave UI are both displaying an error, go to LOWER

OVEN UI AND MICROWAVE UI ARE BOTH DISPLAYING AN ERROR.

UI IS NOT DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION:

A. Unplug oven or disconnect power.

B. Open the back panels and make sure the P6 and P2 connectors are fully

inserted on the appliance manager and on the lower oven user interface board.

- If they are not plugged in, plug in connectors and go to step F.

- If they are plugged in, go to step C.

C. Visually inspect all wires between P6 on the appliance manager and P2 on the

lower user interface.

- Make sure wires are not cut or pinched.

- If the wires appear to be intact, perform a continuity check between

P6-1 of the appliance manager and P2-1 of the user interface board.

Complete for P6-2(AM) to P2-2(UI), P6-4(AM) to P2-4(UI) and P6-5(AM) to

P2-5(UI). All the measurements made should be less than 5 ?. If any of

these measurements exceeds 5 ?, go to step E.

D. Replace the appliance manager. Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.

E. Replace the wiring harness (signal). Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.

F. Replace all parts and panels before operating.

G. Plug in oven or reconnect power.

H. Observe for longer than 1 minute to determine if error has been repaired.

I. If error does not appear, initiate a bake cycle. Let the cycle run for at least

1 minute.

- If no error occurs, cancel the cycle, the problem has been repaired.

- If error occurs again, restart the troubleshooting procedure at step A.

At step D, replace the lower oven user interface board if appliance

manager has already been replaced.
- If both are replaced the problem has been repaired.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The only button on the panel that will light up is the 4 hr delay nothing else happens


This type of diagnosis will require taking voltage readings at the control board with a meter to find the root cause of the failure. Please see the rest of the information provided & the images below for the accessing, testing & replacement instructions.

1). Put the washer into the Diagnostic Test Mode per the Tech Sheet. 2). Did the Right Hand Interface light up? 3). IF the Right Hand Interface did not light up in Step 2 check for 5 VDC on the UIP3 wire connector coming off of the control board to the Right Hand Interface from (Pin 1 to Pin 2) and from (Pin 1 to Pin 3). 4). IF you do not have the 5 VDC then remove the MI3 connector from the Machine Control board. IF the display lights; replace the Motor Control board. IF the display does not light; replace the Machine Control Board. 5). IF you do have the 5 VDC then replace the Right Hand User Interface. 6). IF the Right Hand Interface does light up. Lock the controls by pressing the control lock button for 3 seconds. 7). Once the control has been locked press the power pad. IF the control lock light blinks when the power button is pressed it tells us the power button is sending the output from being pressed to the right hand interface but the right hand interface is not responding and will need to be replaced. 8). IF the control lock light does not blink when the power button is pressed replace the center user interface.

Got a static clicking noise in the back ground is there anything i can do ?


the clicking could relate to either the power supply or the interface board, sometimes this occurs when the light goes white, from your descriptio, I can't be 100%, but if it is the original non upgraded power supply, they should replace it first. if it is a first generation unit, the interface board would also need changing, go via the point of sale or the b and w service, this should be resolved.

My Kenmore Elite front load washer is Flashing a code F 70 and will not start.


The F70 error is a control failure that occurs when a signal from the main control to the interface (touch pad) is not detected.

This can be caused by a loose harness connection at the interface or main control. The image below will show how to remove the top so you can check for lose connections. Be sure to unplug the washer first.

The F70 is an internal control problem. It can be caused by a failed central control board or an interface problem. The way to determine which part is bad when the error occurs is as follows:

  • If the error occurs when the machine is running then the problem is the interface.
  • If the error occurs when the washer is not running the problem is the central control unit.

Shows f70 and the door won't open


First there is a way to open the locked door and get your clothes out. On this model of Kenmore front load washer you can manually release the door lock.Unplug the washer from power. Remove the front lower inspection panel (see the first image), and reach up to the bottom of the door lock and pull down on the small teardrop tab. This will unlock the door lock and allow you to get the clothes out.

I have a front loader whirlpool washer model # WFW9200SQ00, my problem is the washer starts and runs through cycle start process and then flashes F71, I unplug and plug up and same thing happens. I have...


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

Power will not come on to control panel. Door light comes on and the locked light comes on


Check and make sure you have proper voltage at the plug, reset yoru breaker.
Also are the led indicators dim (lights) on the interface board. Watch your terminology as there is a control board but it has no lights on it. Id hate to see you order a control board when you need an interface board. Well if the leds are dim then remove top and reseat all ribbon cables 4 each on the interface board and the control board. then turn it back on and see if it works. If not replace interface board then the control board in that order.

The tv won't turn on. The romote doesn't work and


Could be the powersupply unit has gone out or the control interface logic board I would hire a repairman and have him do some logistics on this TV to find out the issue as it could be 1 of 2 things. 1. no power to the rest of unit due to fuse or bad capcitor 2. controller board not working out of logistics. Ether way here its worth the fix and you should look into it you be glad you did because of todays economy it would cost you Hundreds to replace this GEM!!

Kenmore oasis washer


This is a common problem with the Oasis. The problem is the User Interface Control board behind the control panel. There's a relay on the board that shorts out and causes the washer to randomly (and constantly) beep. This can also occur with the washer turned off. Since the circuit board is not serviceable it is recommended that you replace the control board. Searspartsdirect.com carries replacement parts for your washer. Just type in the model number and search under the console heading for the user interface board. If you are usure which part, I'm talking about, please post back with your model number and I can assist you. I hope this helps.

Kenmore Oasis Beeping


That annoying beep you are talking about is the Cycle On/Off alarm, right? If so...this is a common problem with the Oasis. The only cure I know of is the replace the Interface Control Board behind the console. Now, you mentioned that the machine started up AFTER you removed the console (?), top (?). That sounds like you have a loose or dirty connection between the Interface Control Board and the Main Control Board. There should be a single plug in harness going to the console to the Main Control Board. With the machine unplugged, try disconnecting the harness at both ends and cleaning the contacts. This may resolve what I believe to be a connectivity issue, and may even cure the annoying "beep". However, I personally have yet to find an easy fix for the alarm problem. It is caused by a defective relay on the Interface Control Board, and the board is not serviceable. That is why is has to be replaced. I wish I had better advice for you than that. Sorry...I hope this helps some.
