Fixing a Frigidaire Front-Load Washer that Won't Spin

Frigidaire, washer, pump and 2 more...
This client contacted me via email at 9pm using the Service Call Request form at my website, http://applianceguru.com and I was there the next day to repair the no-spin problem with her washer. In this video, I explain a couple of short cut techniques for diagnosing a bad door latch assembly in this washer. I had a replacement door latch assembly on my service vehicle and got her fixed up in one trip. That's SOP for The Appliance Guru!



Here's the part link to the replacement door latch assembly, comes with a 365-day return policy: http://www.repaircli...974?RCAID=24038


Fixing a Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer that Won't Drain

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Repair Videos, Washing Machine Repair 20 June 2012 · 934 views
Whirlpool, Duet Sport, Washer and 1 more...
This client called in with a complaint that his Whirlpool Duet Sport washer, WFW9150, was full of water and would not pump out. He was also getting the F9 E1 error code which corresponds to this problem. About 72.4% of problems are caused by something stuck in the pump, jamming the impeller. About 27.3% of these problems are caused a bad pump. The remaining 0.3% of these problems are caused by the pump not getting voltage which could be a bad wire connection or bad controller.

Watch with befuddled amazement as The Appliance Guru expertly disassembles the pump, plucks out a broken piece of hair clip that was jamming the pump and restores this machine to its design function.



If the pump turns out to be bad in your washer, you can buy the replacement pump here with a 365-day return policy: http://www.repaircli...0130913/1373005

Troubleshooting a Whirlpool Refrigerator Motorized Damper Assembly

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Repair Videos, Refrigerator Repair 20 June 2012 · 1,244 views
whirlpool, refrigerator, damper
The complaint on this refrigerator was that it's freezing food in the Fresh Food compartment (aka., Beer Compartment). On this particular design, the motorized damper has a been a problem point. One common problem is that the vanes get frozen in place by frost and then break when the damper motor tries to move them. That wasn't the case here. This one took sublime troubleshooting skills to identify the source of the freezing problem. It did involve the damper assembly but only as a secondary effect to the primary failure. Watch with wonder as The Appliance Guru uses ancient and mystical appliantological troubleshooting techniques to divine the real problem sequence here.



Here are the part links to the damper and control board:
