Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. When you say you replaced the motor control unit are you referring to the control board? If the lock keeps locking up on you it could be that the lock mechanism is the problem. Does this happen every time? Lets try putting your unit into diagnostics mode and see if any codes come up.
Ok I have the service manual for your unit I just sent over an offer for it if you do not mind to accept that and i can send the full manual to you.
That way we can get a better picture of what we are looking at.
the service manual with the diagnostics information in it?
That is because you have the user manual not the service manual.
That is perfectly fine. I will be here when you need me.
Hello again :)
So obviously as you already knew your door lock is failing you and will more than likely need replaced but it also seems your inlet valve is giving you trouble as well.
Well with the other things I worry that its just giving an off reading to the control board so I wanted to have the other two checked out first.
I mean it could make sense as to why the door never wants to unlock and the water reading off would be if the board is bad so it could be the root to everything. I would like you to make sure that the lock has nothing in there obstructing it from locking or unlocking. Then we need to make sure the water inlet valve is functioning correctly. It can actually be checked with a multimeter if you have one. If both of those are ok then the problem is with the control board itself and it will need to be replaced.
When did you replace it?
The f29 unit is the door lock error now you said you replaced the door unit what exactly do you mean by that?
This is making no sense you are getting the error for the door lock being the issue and replacing the door lock did not help. That typically means that your control board is the problem but you said you replaced that as well correct? I am running out of ideas. Have you had a chance to test your water inlet valve yet?
You did say you replaced the door lock mechanism though correct?
If you have replaced that what about the door strike?
it can if you have replaced the door mechanism and that did not work and neither did the MCU its all that is left. I am happy that they are so close to you that is awesome. Let me know what happens please.
I am completely out of ideas because the code you are getting is for the door lock mechanism and you have replaced everything to do with this code.
