Yes, that is what happens.


 

Okay this mean you have a bad main control interface. Main Control Board(NNN) NNN-NNNNMain Product View this is a common failure on these. you need to order and replace the control. I have included a link to order that part below.

This problem is similar to one i had a few years ago. We replaced the main control 3 times, it turned out to be a loose wire on the heat sensor,is this a possibility?

well that usually doesn't cause the whole control to shut off. are there any fault codes that come up at all ? you can try a diagnostic test if you wish.

Does it unlock when you press off ? or is it stuck locked. ?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

THe door only shows lock when i press start fo the test. It does not show lock any other time

alright , lets try this. along the back there are screws holding the top on, remove them and lift the top up at the back and slide it out from under the front control. set it aside, now turn machine on. wiggle the wiring harnesses and see if the control goes off. I have seen a lot of the control interfaces with bad solder joints that come loose. can you do that ?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago


I moved, wiggled, shook & touched every wire & connector i could find. The power stayed on.

okay lets try this, close the door. Select any one key (except PAUSE/
CANCEL) and follow the steps below,
using the same key (remember the key):
press/hold
4 seconds
Release for
4 seconds
Press/hold
4 seconds
Release for
4 seconds
Press/hold
4 seconds
Upon release, all console LED lights will turn on for 5 seconds.
If there are any failure codes, all cycle LED lights will flash and the appropriate Status LED's will turn on.
The Estimated Time Display will display failure code (if
available).
Note any codes that appear
Press the same key to advance to the
next failure code. (If the console doesn't
change then the same failure code was
stored multiple times.)
If there aren't any more failure codes all
the lights on the console will turn on for
5 seconds.
Next the washer begins the Diagnostic
Test.
To cancel out of service mode press
PAUSE/CANCEL. (This exits you out of
the program.)
Lets see if the machine will run thru the quick test cycle

Bryan, I took off the back cover of the washer & found a broken wire going to the sensor. I put on a new connecter & problem solved. I am glad that I did not replace the Main Control Interface. I am glad we researched the problem deeper. Thank you, Tim

thats fantastic Tim ! I'm glad also. it took a bit to find the correct test procedure but I'm glad we did ! thanks and great job ! have a great day. Bryan
