Thermador DW won't drain DWHD630GCM/60

17 January 2015 - 02:10 PM

this dishwasher will not drain at end of cycles. Customer had thermador repair out but all he did was push buttons and verify drain hose was clear and unobstructed. I see another post requesting a tech sheet or manual but I couldn't find it in the downloads section. any help?

KitchenAid D/W 2-Drawer KUDD01DPPA-1 won't drain, won't test either

18 December 2014 - 02:08 PM

I downloaded all the tech sheets and manuals and read through them for an hour last night. I also checked all previous posts related to drain problems.


The top drawer does not drain properly. I checked the rubber outlet at the air gap and it was clean. When turning the unit on it goes to pump out, and I can hear the water in the sink coming out, which happens twice, and then nothing. The drawer remains full of water (a few inches).


I compared the operation of the top drawer to the bottom and there is a noticeable difference in sound when the pump/wash motor is energized. The bottom drawer sounds stronger and more forceful. My guess is the top drawer is used more often and the drive motor may be worn out, or there is a problem with the control board.


I've not worked on more than five of these in the past 10 years and am not familiar with them in detail. I tried to get the top drawer to go into diagnostic mode several times but it just sits there and does nothing. I tried it all three ways according to the manual and nothing. 


What is the hall effect part for? I checked its position and the all the connections and everything seems to be in the correct place. 


 Can  someone out there offer me some direction on this? Thanks!



KAWS850LQ1 KitcheAid (whirlpool direct drive) washer with bleach and detergent dispense...

29 August 2014 - 03:15 PM

Replaced the inlet valve with customer supplied part, about two months ago. Customer states washer occasionally overflows. I tested it yesterday and found the water inlet valve does not always shut off, even when power is removed from the water level control. Tapping on the inlet valve for a stuck valve did not work. Only pushing in on the timer knob stopped it, and when pulling the timer knob back out to start the machine, the water valve stayed in off position. 


Question: is the timer bad? Can I get a tech sheet with a schematic diagram? I could not locate one on the machine the last time and I'm sure it's gone. Anyone experience this with the direct drive type platform and the massive multi-port inlet valve?


thanks, domo, artegato!

Fridgidaire, Refer, FGHC2331PF0, Ice Dispenser not working, beeping on start-up

27 August 2014 - 07:14 PM

I took the door off this refer some days back and upon start up was getting a beeping and a code. The code disappeared, but the dispenser does not work. Does anyone have a tech sheet or code sheet for this unit, and has anyone had experience working on the dispenser for this model? I have the parts list, but really need something more substantial, if available. Thanks!!!

Whirlpool washer WTW6800WL1, shaking

14 August 2014 - 01:47 PM

I'm going on this call tomorrow and am asking if anyone out there has encountered one of these machines having a problem with shaking or being out of balance. I'll be checking the feet of course and making sure the machine is level, but I've almost no experience with type of top loader. Any help, much domos, gracias, dänka, mercí.
