#302876 Electrolux ew23bc71is0 nightmare ice maker

Posted by Scottthewolf on 08 September 2014 - 09:53 PM

Sounds like a sealed system leak in the evaporator, I would call the Electrolux tech line, give him your symptoms and hopefully you can get the whole refrigerator exchanged for the customer, it's not repairable.

#302869 Frigidaire Top Mount FRT18IL6JW3 Not Cooling

Posted by Scottthewolf on 08 September 2014 - 09:38 PM

I have been getting complaints of ice on the freezer door and the freezer door liner on these, and the typical noise complaints. Frigidaire is so cheap I think they bought Samsung's overstock on compressors. I am so sick of customers complaining about the small issues on such cheap refrigerators when they are under the first year or extended warranties.

Posted by Scottthewolf on 23 August 2014 - 02:09 PM

Sounds like a transmission issue.

#301665 Kitchenaid refrigerator kssc48qms01 refrigerator door gasket

Posted by Scottthewolf on 22 August 2014 - 07:29 PM

This is a foamed in place door gasket. Since it is not cost effective to replace the door, you have to break the foam from in between the plastic door liner and the outer door with a putty knife and then pull out the door gasket and replace it with a new one. It's alot harder than it looks and takes alot of patience.

#301663 SHY56A05UC/14 water pressure and heatrer problem

Posted by Scottthewolf on 22 August 2014 - 07:25 PM

Did you try running it without the filter in  the sump to see if maybe your sump filter is clogged?

Did somebody recently install a new garbage disposer?

#301660 Amana Washer ALW480DAW

Part number: 27001007

Part number: 27001007

Also, make sure you only use the OEM belt, if the belt doesn't slip when it goes into spin with a full tub of water it will cause the splashing out the sides of the tub and may even cause the motor to trip out on overload.

#301592 Maytag Bravos Washer MVWX500XW2 bearing issue

Posted by Scottthewolf on 21 August 2014 - 06:40 PM

I'd rather just replace the gearcase, not worth the trouble of taking the gearcase apart. 

#301588 Maytag stacked dryer LSG7806AAE: the Rumble in the Condo

Posted by Scottthewolf on 21 August 2014 - 06:31 PM

Right part number, wrong video. You need to remove the slanted access panel between the washer and the dryer, then remove the front of the dryer, then the front bulkhead and the front of the blower housing. Everything is front serviceable, no need to pull the dryer away from the wall.

#301584 Built in Kitchenaid ridiculousness

Posted by Scottthewolf on 21 August 2014 - 06:22 PM

Why not just add a griddle as a bonus accessory to the refrigerator?  Just take your frozen foods out of the freezer and cook them  without taking them to the microwave or the range. Maybe that was where Whirlpool got the idea for the Polara range.

#301336 Whirlpool Duet Sport Error Code F33 (WFW8300SW00)

Posted by Scottthewolf on 19 August 2014 - 12:34 AM

That is not an electrical wire. That's a half broken outer tub counterweight, That would NOT cause a no drain condition.

#301331 KFIS29BBMS02 Ice Build Up Right Inside The Freezer Door

Posted by Scottthewolf on 18 August 2014 - 11:36 PM

There is a "frost reduction kit" available for these bottom mount refrigerators that comes with a different evaporator motor fan blade, some felt seals for the evaporator panel,  a new electronic control and a evaporator fan motor delay bimetal to aid in reducing the frost in these units.  I will have to get back to you later with the part number because I don't remember it off the top of my head.

Was the part number of the new door latch you installed #154758101 ?Part number: 154758101

Part number: 154758101


There is a service bulletin to replace the door latch with this part number for the issues you noted above.

#301307 Bosch SilencePlus 9000359119 DW unused soap at end of cycle

Posted by Scottthewolf on 18 August 2014 - 05:50 PM

I would start by replacing the water valve. Part number: 00622058

Posted by Scottthewolf on 18 August 2014 - 05:07 PM

I would strongly advise against trying to adjust the thermostat.
