#241629 Whirlpool Refrigerator Broken Tab Ice Dispenser Door Kit

Posted by Scottthewolf on 30 October 2012 - 01:33 PM

Went back today and got it sealing tight. I had to break more of the broken tabs off to let it close properly.

As Larry the Cable Guy says, I got 'er done!

#241618 DCLR333ET1WW GE DRYER

Posted by Scottthewolf on 30 October 2012 - 06:51 AM

Had this same experience, multiple call backs (I guarantee the repair for a year). After getting burned like that, I don't screw around with the re-string kits anymore, I just replace the whole heating dish. More expensive but it's a lot faster and more reliable repair, too.


I also just replace the whole assembly, since we charge flat rate labor.

#241597 whirlpool cap2762ewo won't drain or high speed spin

Posted by Scottthewolf on 29 October 2012 - 01:45 PM

It could be a bad electronic control, possibly the relay that runs the motor in the opposite direction of agitate to let the machine drain and spin could be bad.

#241519 Frigidaire stack washer FEX831CS0

Posted by Scottthewolf on 27 October 2012 - 02:26 PM

Thanks Samurai, you just answered one of my questions as to why so many of the bearings and seals fail. MADE IN CHINA.


#241475 Frigidaire Gallery DW relay issue

Posted by Scottthewolf on 26 October 2012 - 11:47 PM

OR you can do what professional appliance technicians do and replace the whole control board.


#241452 Maytag FAV6800AWW stopping at 31 min

Posted by Scottthewolf on 26 October 2012 - 02:00 PM

Sounds like the cold water fill is not working or the drain pump isn't working to drain the water out of the machine. You need to find out if there is a fault code.


#241385 KUIS155HBS1 Ice Machine -- Not Cool

Posted by Scottthewolf on 25 October 2012 - 05:20 PM

I disagree vehemently about the scottsman...very well made, reliable machine.
especially if you get the dce33 model...ALL analog...no control boards, as it has been for over 50 years...unline does suck.


My bad, I meant to say Marvel and Uline suck, not Scottsman.

Older Sub Zero icemakers were also made by Whirlpool. I think now Sub Zero is making their own icemakers, but they are way overpriced.


#241343 Need Tip for Installing Washing Machine Belt 417.39022890

Posted by Scottthewolf on 24 October 2012 - 11:19 PM

Place the belt around the motor pulley first, then roll it on the large wash basket pulley while turning the wash basket pulley. If it doesn't roll on, you've got issues.


#241251 GE Profile PSS25MGNA refer - freezer not freezing

Posted by Scottthewolf on 23 October 2012 - 09:36 PM

Oh, another thing, Consumer Reports is only a marginally reliable source on reliability. Consumer Reports tests all the appliances when they are brand new, They base the reliabilty of the appliances by asking their readers in an annual questionairre what problems they have had with their appliances in the past 10 years. Since not everybody reads or subscribes to Consumer Reports, it is not a "real world" report on the reliability of appliances.


#241250 GE Profile PSS25MGNA refer - freezer not freezing

Posted by Scottthewolf on 23 October 2012 - 09:24 PM

Ok - the info about LG being 'troublesome' is helpful. I did check Consumer Reports and it is the highest rated.

As for LG being a Korean company and the impact on the economy - well - at the risk of pissing you off - I'm a true capitalist at heart. I want the best for my money. If that means buying from a manufacturer not in the good ole USA - so be it.

:whistling:


Maybe performance wise it is highest rated, Not so for reliability and the track record in repairs.


#241241 HTS17GBSERWW GE Moisture in Freezer Icicle’s form on the shelves no defrost...

Posted by Scottthewolf on 23 October 2012 - 07:55 PM

Remove the evaporator cover in the freezer compartment and take a picture of the evaporator coil. You might have a sealed system issue. Check that the evaporator fan and the condenser fans are working ok and that the compressor is running ok.


#241240 CS980SN1SS GE Cafe Range Burner Switch Replacement

Posted by Scottthewolf on 23 October 2012 - 07:52 PM

You might have to remove the main cooktop if you can't see any visible screws under or around the control panel.


#241200 Whirlpool Duet Washer WFW9500TW03

Posted by Scottthewolf on 22 October 2012 - 10:33 PM

I would have just replaced the whole rear half of the outer tub and been done with it without having any callbacks.


#241199 GE Profile PSS25MGNA refer - freezer not freezing

Posted by Scottthewolf on 22 October 2012 - 10:24 PM

I second the Kitchen Aid, if I wasn't single I would have bought it. Instead I own a Whirlpool top freezer refigerator.
