Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
thx for the link. However, I have been there. They no longer recognize the part number. I have been told by my local technician that they stopped making that part some time ago - although he was also pointing me to the wrong part number, so perhaps he was mistaken as to what part I needed. Steve
So these guys are sure that they can get the part(s) I need, but they cannot help me unless I give them the part number. So if I pull the part, will the number be printed on it somewhere, and how likely is the unit to work if that part is replaced?
The symptoms are that the unit has been occasionally stopping early (first 20 sec.) in the wash cycle. In the past, I have used the lock lever to disengage the cycle, then reset to start again. This time, moving the lock lever would not allow the Reset signal to be received. I powered down and the lock lever still would not reset the PF until I got inside and manually engaged the switch the lock lever is attached to. Put all back together, power back on, and the unit let me make my settings for a new wash, but when started, it sounded good for 3 seconds, then stopped. At this point the lock lever again was ignored. Opened it all back up, and even manual jiggling would not trigger the switch. So, I suspect the switch even though it makes a click when engaged manually, but that whole washer stopping a few seconds into the cycle (as if the door had been opened) still makes me nervous. Thoughts? BTW, this should be a great year offensively. Can the Pats D hold up?
