Faulty main pcb board , test cycle showing

This machine has all of a sudden gone into test mode, i have been told this is a faulty main pcb board, i have the skill to actually mend the board itself, if i was given a clue as to which part on the board had gone down,I have other good pbc boards from other machine so have more or less all the parts i need, does someone have what it takes to identify where on the board i look, ie? a faulty resistor or faulty capacitor etc many thanks in advance

If you do decide to remove the board and fix it, you sometimes can see what goes bad by a small burn or tarnish mark around a resistor or capacitor. Other times you wont be able to see a thing. It would all depend on what system or part caused the first problem. Good Luck!!! Jim

My board looked fine. I ignored hamstel, removed it and found a burn on the back. Repaired the tracks and good as new. All works fine. Removing the board was the only way I could see the burn marks.

Electrolux washing machine wh1092 when turn on lights 1,4 and 8 flashes. Nothing happens

If I understand correctly there is blinking LED-s from "Prewash","Rinse Hold" and "End of cycle". In binary code it is fault E91 what means communications error between main PCB and display board.
So, could be: main electronic PCB, display board or wiring.

I have a cyclex 2.5v2 treadmill, and I think a component has gone on the motor control board/pcb, this is because when the treadmill counts down to start and gets to 0 it trips the socket circuit breaker...

1) Unpluggd the machine, and see if the c. breaker from your home tripped, if this happen the problem will be in your home, NOT in your machine. call to some electrician.

2) Plug the machine, and see if the c. breaker is tripped? if this happen the main motor board is faulty, replace, or the motor need repair.
3) Test the motor input voltage, if there are the motor is faulty.
4) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty. See the block diagram +diagram attached.
God bless you

My top leading washing machine is nt working. service guy says ic chip and sensor is gone. plz tell me wht will b the cost.

This means that the main program controller board is faulty as the main IC is faulty and in most cases this is not replaceable as the PCB is coated with epoxy.
The cost of the board may vary with places and it will be available with only the service dealer. It is up to you to decide the work if the cost works to about only less the 25% of the machine cost. If not think of going for a new machine. Take opinions before the decision is made, might be lucky to get a board from a scrapped set.

Spin cycle will not spin

it is possibly the pcb control board that has gone, the motor spin relay should be incorporated in it which sounds to have gone faulty.

Sounds like the PCB is Freaking out. All you can do is Check all the connections between the Main board and Display board and if you still have the problem - then i'm afraid it is probably the Main Board gone Faulty.

Wf860p computer control automatic

I have had this problem it is caused by accidentally pressing both the on and start button together. It puts the machine into demo mode. You need to press both the buttons together again for about 30 seconds. If it doesn't work first time switch the machine off and do it again. Sometimes you have to do this many times before it works but eventually it does work.
Very frustrating.
I found the cause was either leaning on the front of the machine or resting a broom which when you pick it up accidentally presses the two buttons.
