    Default Cabrio no reset

    Cabrio top load washer
    Model: wtw5640xw2
    Try to reset/recalibrate and cannot get the Wash, Rinse, and Done lights to light.
    I have put in actuator and lid switch/lock that wirk on another machine. Still get no water or anything.
    I suspect a bad board even though the green led light is on.
    Besides a bad connection, anything else I should check?
    Can the thermister at the water valves be unplugged or bypassed on this model?

    I have never tried....what would you be trying to gain by doing that?

    Try to reset/recalibrate and cannot get the Wash, Rinse, and Done lights to light.
    So it will not enter a test/recalibrate mode?

    Is it this tech sheet here?

    I saw a video that a guy was talking about some lady complained her cold water was noy cold enough. On this particular machine, he unplugged the thermistor. He did say this machine was not completely electronic though. On completely electronic models, the board will look for the thermistor. If it does not find it, there is no signal sent to the water valve. You get no water.
    Saw this on some appliance training videos I found. I think he was saying the thermistor was not allowing cold water in at its natural temperature in order to work the detergent better. This was in South Florida.
    Anyway, what sort of resistance should I get at the thermistor?
    120 ac power?

    I will check that tech sheet out. It does not have one in it, and the book from inside is gone, but I have another book from another mtw... machine I was going by.
    Accidently came across a guy resetting a Maytag. I think he did it the same way the book I have shows to do it.
    When I out the good actuator and kid switch on it, I was hoping that was the problem. Figure it has to be the board or a bad connection.
    May need to out those pieces back on it and check for error codes. I thought they were all cleared. It had several. One was Stuck Key. I don't think it showed back up. Will double check tomorrow.

    That does look like the same I have from another I was telling you about. I will take a closer look to make sure there are not a few differences that might be throwing me off.
    Thanks

    If that is the right tech sheet for this machine, I was looking for the wrong set if lights for calibration. I only need to turn the diak until Rinse lights up.
    My scatter brain may have git cinfused between videos and what I thought the tech sheet had in it.

    That gets worse with age!
    Page 17 has the thermistor resistance chart.

    I don't blame you with this newer crap....just won't last, costs a fortune to repair and is not worth the time to rebuild.
