I would like to know how to check the ptc. switch and where I can down load a service manual?
Answer Hello Dale. The PTC. switch on the dispenser should read closed when the drawer is closed and read open when the drawer is open. Hope this helps.
I have done all the check as per the wiring diagram every thing checks ok. I have replaced the door switch, the timer, the speed control board and the motor. I have not been able to get this washer to spin in any cycle. It fills and tumble in only one direction during wash, It pumps out, I have check the psi switch it says it good when tested manually. can the ptc. switch at the soap dish cause this problem. What voltage should I have at the switch, can I check this switch with a volt meter. It also tumble 2 time just before it pump out in the last of the spin cycle. Is there a service manual on line Thank you Dale
Answer Hello Dale. Here are some test to perform. Hope this helps. Set timer to spin. Disconnect the 6 and 10 pin plugs from the speed control board. Measure voltage drop between pin 5 of the 6 pin plug and pins 1, 2, 6, 9, & 10 of the 10 pin plug. If any voltage readings beside 120 VAC between pin 5 to 6 and 9, and less than 50 between pin 5 to pins 1,2 & 10. You will have a defective timer. If between pin 5 to pins 6 &9 reads 120 VAC and between pin 5 to pins 1, 2, & 10 read less than 50 VAC you have a bad speed control board. Since both of these are new, you will need to run these test and see if there is a wiring harness issue with the machine. Also, look for loose connections, or bad connectors inside the plugs. Hope this helps.
