Bryan, MDE5500AYW Ser 72799378ja One other piece of info, tho i don't think its relevent to the immediate problem. The felt gasket, which was replaced a few years ago, is sticking out in several places. one piece, about 5 inches long, is actually hanging into the tub. I know this needs to be replaced, but trying to see what the immediate problem is to decide to junk this whole thing.
Sorry, no. The start pause is blinking. pressing it has no effect. the cycles are stuck where they were last set (sensor dry). Lights are steady, but pressing has no effect. The door switch works
i can get one at the autozone quickly––– 30 mins. Just about everything in the house is broken. This is DC; huge bucks rehabbing an old house. my wife put in so called top of the line appliances everywhere. everywhere they break. I've fixed all three motors in LG fridge. Dunno how exactly to use voltmeter on this–– but built Navy Aircraft Carriers for 30 years. Reckon i can read.
Quick check with autozone-- no voltmeters. 837 pm local, so Home Depot tomorrow. that's ok with me if you. Many types and some steep prices. Here's a link from Amazon of low end. two leads and a meter, correct?
one quick question: this is a tennis show bonking cause-- u thinking the drop across a switch can be an effect? The thing seems to be just sitting there stupifyed after the door was knocked open.
hi-- yes we need help. i had a bit of trouble returning to the site. I have the voltmeter. its 1:27 am local so we'll do this tomorrow, but of ud like to tell us what to do, we can begin asap and report back to you
regarding the door switch, if door is shut or pin held in; we get lights (though stuck); vive versa, we get nothing at all.
Bryan, I apologize for the delay. I am sure in your business many people try for free advice; this is not so here. My health is a bit precarious just now; i thought i could do this, but seeing the scope-- essentially taking the dryer apart–– i just can't do it. My son is coming this weekend. I'm going to release the funds to you now, however, as a matter of good faith and appreciation. We can manage walking through the switches from the various videos, but it looks to me like taking the drum out to replace this felt gasket is a really big job. If i were to buy a new washer and give all this up, what are your recommendations? Thank you.
