Q:

Kenmore Mod 110.27062600 ser CT0670781 Type 560 Controller is messed up. Flashes random times on timer display, Did reset after being unplugged for some

A:

Your details indicate that the control reset and stopped flashing random numbers after you unplugged it for some time. The details seem to be cut off. If unplugging the washer completely reset the control then it should be okay. Power surges or glitches through the electrical lines can scramble or damage the electronic control board or user interface control board in this washer. If the boards reset and continue to work properly then you should not need to replace either of them at this time. If the condition returns, then you may need to replace one or both of the control boards. If you are getting frequent, random changes in the user interface display, then the user interface control board may need to be replaced. The part number for the user interface control board is 8564393. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a link for a previous answer that provides more advanced troubleshooting and access information for this type of problem: Why won't my Kenmore Elite washer model 110.27082601 work?

If you are certain that the user interface control board is bad, you can use the information in the above link to replace that component. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

The part number for the machine control board is W10189966. There are instances where this control board will need to be replaced along with the user interface control board to correct the type of problem that you are describing. The above link also shows how to replace this control board.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why won't the gas valve open, the ignitor will glow and fade back off?

A:

Based on your details both solenoid coils need to replaced. Whenever you find the glow bar ignitor glowing red and then fading back off without any burner ignition would indicate a weak solenoid. When cold they will normally open the gas valve but once energized they become warm with current and will no longer have enough magnetism to open the valve. See images below.

I recommend replacing both coils at the same time. Order the coil kit part # 279834.

I added a link to Sears Parts Direct with the coil kit looked up for you.

Q:

Maytag Neptune Not Spinning Clothes Dry

A:

You don't say if the washer had clothes in it when you checked it in the service mode. If it was empty, put clothes in the washer and get them wet and then put it into spin in the service mode. Spinning at the speeds you listed would give you damp clothes.

I suspect the suspension shocks might be weak or the motor control board might have failed.

If you notice a slower average speed with clothes pay particular attention to the shocks and their connections.

The motor control board monitors the amp draw of the motor and furnishes more power for a faster spin if the amp load is low.
