#324669 Maytag Centennial MVWC360AW0 WILL NOT FINISH CYCLE

Posted by Scottthewolf on 16 July 2015 - 11:22 PM

Also make sure it has good water pressure for the final rinse. They all use cold rinses, if it doesn't fill with water fast enough the electronic control will give up and shut the machine down.

I am not a fan of these so called "energy saving" machines.


I have had a lot of these machines with the F7 E1 error codes. The majority of them have been the shift actuator, but not always.

Yes, check the heater for the element touching bare metal.

#322861 Bosch dishwasher Model SHU4022UC/U06 STUMPER

Posted by Scottthewolf on 21 June 2015 - 11:40 PM

These dishwashers have a float switch in the base ,if the base is still full of water, no water will enter the machine.

#322858 The lady of the house asks" Do you have protection?"

Posted by Scottthewolf on 21 June 2015 - 11:17 PM

Most of the time, I have the opposite problem. Some of my customer's houses are so filthy dirty, I am the one that needs protection. The kind of house where you get full of dog fur, cat fur, smell like a cat litter box and on top of it you feel like you took a bath in melted popsicle juice.

#317452 SHE45M02UC/48 Bosch dishwasher drain problems

Posted by Scottthewolf on 09 April 2015 - 08:15 PM

It's very common for the impeller of these pumps to come loose off of the motor shaft. It looks like it works when the unit is run dry, but if it has water to pump out, the motor may run, but the impeller won't move.

#315096 Frigidaire Model 417.39012890, door lock assembly

Posted by Scottthewolf on 09 March 2015 - 04:24 PM

Wiring harness is only needed if the wire connectors don't fit the new door lock assembly.

You forgot the rest of the machines that killed the company, the Searcy top load washers that began with the model numbers SAV, the Drying Cabinet, the Accelis  range, the Skybox, the Performa and Atlantis washers, and the numerous recalls on the dishwashers.

#313621 stackable in tiny closet

I also raise my rates when I think the repair will be a bad idea, like an ancient Caloric ME range, an older Frigidaire gas range where you have to drill out all the burner head screws because they are rusted to the burner.

#313583 stackable in tiny closet

Posted by Scottthewolf on 17 February 2015 - 01:14 PM

I once charged more  to replace a lid switch on a Maytag washer  because the whole basement reeked  of  dirty cat litter boxes. 

#313561 Maytag Dryer DE412 Heats for only a short time

Posted by Scottthewolf on 17 February 2015 - 12:12 AM

While you are at it, it would be wise to replace the blower wheel if you are going to replace the motor. The blower wheels on these dryers are famous for the "D" flat rounding out and just free wheeling on the motor shaft.

#313558 Kenmore 796.29272001 Top load washer Leaking (Same as Whilrlpool Calypso)

Posted by Scottthewolf on 17 February 2015 - 12:03 AM

NO, this is an LG built washer, Nothing is as bad as a Calypso.

#313339 Whirlpool dryer roller question W10314173 vs. 349241

Posted by Scottthewolf on 13 February 2015 - 05:23 PM

I think they changed the rollers on the DOTT dryers to these with the red hubs because they had the thumping problem  with the 349241 rollers. If the dryer sat unused long enough, the rubber on the lighter duty rollers would flatten  against the drum and the thumping noise would occur until the dryer warmed up.

#313281 GE Dryer DBLR333GTOWW getting old

Sorry, check the vent hood going to the outside of the house as well as the vent hose.
