kenmore Elite HE 3t washing machine error code fdlWhen you press start it just makes a clicking sound like the switch going on and off
Type of Appliance: Washer
Hello, my name is XXXXXX XXXX is not good news. Does your model number begin with 110? If so this is a whirlpool duet. That code means either a bad CCU, MCU, door switch, or the harness that connects the CCU and MCU is bad. I have ran into this problem multiple, multiple times and there is no sure way to know exactly what is wrong. We can look at the MCU and CCU and the harness and see if there are any burn marks. Burn marks indicate bad parts.
it is a model 110.45962400
any way to check the door switch first
Yeah, I am going to opt out because honestly its a crap shoot on this unit when that code appears. I have done over 50 of these repairs and I always tell the customers the same thing.
Does the door lock after you hit start ?
door does not lock
the loud clicking noise is most likely the door lock trying to activate, this part is common to fail.
link above is for the part.
as far as instructions for replacement of part
1. remove the three screws from the top backside of the top panel 2. push the top panel to the rear 1/8 to 1/4 inch3. lift/rotate top panel from rear to front, set aside.4. remove the three wire connectors from latch.5. use #15 Torx to remove the three screws from the latch.6. remove and replace part using top opening.7. reverse order to finish
if you have any other questions, let me know.
is there any way to test the switch before buying a new one
RIGHT AFTER YOU HIT START, PUT YOUR EAR UP TO WHERE DOOR CLOSES, SEE IF SOUND IS COMING FROM THERE ALMOST ALWAYS THE CASE.ALSO FOUND THE PART MUCH CHEAPER, PASTE BELOW INTO BROWSERhttp://www.appliancezone.com/ShowProduct.aspx?ID=19720&gclid=CJiX7Iv34q8CFRQEnAodPTOFiwOR IF YOU ARE OK WITH A USED ONE LINK BELOWhttp://compare.ebay.com/like/320876756037?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar
