Is there any way of checking the MCU with a ohm meter to determine if it is good or not for Kenmore 11045872400? I've read other posts that reply to check for motor function? Could you be more specific, like if the motor is turning or not?
Answer Hello Brian777,
You cannot check the MCU with an ohm meter. You can ohm out the wiring harness and run the diagnostic check, which is what we recommend to do. The tech sheet should be located in the base of the unit. This will walk you through the procedure. If the unit gives a fault code for a communications error, unplug and tighten up the connections to the boards one at a time.
Washer will start washing and beep and the f 06 will come up and washer not working.
Answer Hello Michael. The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine
will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will
be unlocked after three minutes. 1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers
and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and
the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
Washer doesnt spin at all checked motorW/meter and reads ok. Is it the mcu?
Answer Hello Craig. No power to the motor, and there is power to the MCU, replace the MCU in the unit.
