You need to ask for the manual in the right forum "Service Manual Requests", not here. Just for the record, how long have you been an appliance technician? It seems like you don't like to follow directions.
Yup, had the same problem with a Whirlpool built Kenmore dishwasher recently. The problem is the customer's kids think the dishwasher will dispose of the large pieces of food. The P-Trap in the sink drain is full of junk. This dishwasher does not have the drain hose routed to the garbage disposer. I told the customer that I am not a plumber and due to the fact that her sink plumbing will fall apart if I touch it she needs to get a plumber to replace the sink drain pipes and have the plumber attach the dishwasher drain hose to the garbage disposer where it belongs.
Amana pretty much wrote the book on the bottom freezer and French door refrigerators.
Amana got bought out by Maytag in the early 2000's. Maytag then got bought out by Whirlpool.
Your best bet on a bottom freezer or French door refrigerator would be any of the following brands listed below, Whirlpool manufactures them all now.
You would also be wise to take out the extended warranty from the manufacturer, NOT the store from where you bought it after your register the unit by sending in the warranty registration card that you get with the use and care guide that nobody reads anymore. The reason I suggest taking out the extended warranty is because all you get is 1 year on the whole unit, no more extended part warranties on the sealed system or electronics. The electronic control boards for these units cost almost $175 and replacing a compressor or an evaporator could cost as much as $700.
I would definitely stay away from Frigidaire, GE, LG and Samsung. Frigidaire seems to have really bad luck with their electronic control boards, Ge has bad luck with their electronic control boards, LG is hard to get parts for and alot of servicers won't touch LG, Samsung is just a really poorly engineered unit and parts are hard to get, alot of servicers won't touch Samsung, either.
Okay, Frigidaire won the poorest design on the door boots of any front load washer. I have a customer who had their door boot come completely off because they managed to get an article of clothing stuck in between the door and the boot.
Anyhow, for the life of me I cannot get the old door boot back on, the stupid garter spring they use on the part of the boot that attaches to the outer tub is a joke, You basically need 2 people to stretch it enough to get it on without it coming back off.
Why does Frigidaire have to be so damn cheap? Why can't they have a normal door boot like the LG or Whirlpools?
Another thing is that the replacement door boot is so outrageously priced. To get an instruction sheet and the stupid plastic spacers to help you install the new door boot, customer has to pay $165.00 retail. Add labor cost to that and the customer just decided to buy a new top load washer instead of sinking almost $400 into this POS.
btw, drying clothes in a dryer then leaving, isn't such a good idea. Remember, you have an open heat source and highly flammable lint inside the dryer. It's always a good idea to keep an eye it.
Right. I tell all my customers that the only appliance they should leave running when they aren't home is the refrigerator, and even that's iffy these days. You do not want to come home to a flood or a fire!
All the newer refrigerators make the popping noises, it is the refrigerant popping as it changes state. Nothing you can do about it. My 2 year old Whirlpool top mount refrigerator does it, My old Frigidaire top mount made that noise too
