Question and Answers

Q:

I have a kenmore elite h3washer 5yrsold and had 2 power outages, it goes to rinse cycle then blinks faults or F and H. which boards got fried? thanks stephen j

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the washer. The FH error code will come up if the washer does not detect water entering the washer. I recommend checking the cold-water valve before replacing the machine control board. It is only failing just on the rinse cycle. The rinse cycle usually only uses cold water. First, unplug the washer and turn the water off. Then remove the cold-water hose from the back of the washer. You should see a screen that sits inside of the inlet of the valve. Make sure that screen is clean. You can flush the screen with a bowl of water and a turkey baster. Once the screen is clean, reconnect the hose and test the washer by running a rinse and spin.

If the water is coming in and the washer still fails I would suspect the washer is siphoning, a plugged air trap, or defective pressure switch. To check the air trap unplug the washer and remove the top. Then locate the pressure switch on the right side in the back. Remove the hose from the switch and blow into the end. You should be able to clear. If the hose is clear, I recommend replacing the switch.

If the washer does not attempt to fill on the rinse cycle, the problem could be a failed water valve, main control, or the wiring to the valve. Unplug the washer and remove the top. Then carefully check the connections on the main control and the water valve. If you have a meter, you can ohm the valve and the wire harness. If you get an open reading that component is defective. After making all of the above checks then I suspect a failed main control.

Q:

Weedeater PE 550 gear/clutch problem?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the edger. I have looked up the model number you have submitted. If you are not sure the cause of the problem I recommend taking the gearbox apart first. If the gears are broken, you can replace just the gears instead of the complete assembly. If the gears look ok, I recommend replacing the clutch. If you take your time and lay everything out as you disassemble it, you should be ok doing the repair yourself. I recommend taking pictures as you take it apart. These will help later when you put it together.

Q:

Gas Edger does not start - Weed Eater PE 550 type 3

A:

I am sorry you are having a problem with the edger. You indicated that you replaced the fuel lines. I assume that you replaced the fuel pick-up/filter inside the tank. Make sure that you have the proper mix of fresh fuel/oil in the tank. Make sure that you have enough fuel/oil mix in the tank and that the pick-up/filter is submerged in the fuel.

 

The engine needs three things to run. They are fuel, compression and spark. Let’s check for those first. Try to start the engine as you normally do. After you pull the rope, a few times remove the spark plug. The end of it should be wet if it is getting fuel. If not, then you probably have a fuel line problem since you just replaced the carburetor.

 

If the spark plug is wet after try to start the engine, I recommend checking for spark. Allow the spark plug to dry before testing the spark. Conduct that test away from the cylinder. I found a video that will aid in checking for spark. Here  is the video. That video shows a chain saw but the process will be the same for your edger. If you are not getting spark then you may have a bad spark plug or a failed ignition module.

 

If you have spark I recommend checking for compression. To do this you need a compression gauge. You should be able to loan one from Auto zone. They have a loan a tool program. Once you have the gauge installed pull the rope a few times fast. You should have a reading of at least 90 psi. If you do not have this reading there is a problem in the cylinder. This type of repair usually exceeds the valve of the unit.

If you are missing a screw on that carburetor, that could be causing your problem.

Your details indicate that you are not getting fuel to the cylinder. The problem with the loose fastener on the carburetor and the cylinder assembly. The system is probably not able to pull a vacuum and suck gas into the cylinder due to those leaks. I recommend that you resolve those issues and then see if you are getting gas into the cylinder.
