Friggidaire FRS26F5AW5 - Water Line Discoloured?

05 July 2015 - 01:26 PM

Greetings All! I don't come by here much these days, being too busy with the day job, but was asked to check out this workhorse which has been in storage for 3 1/2 years! Appears to work OK, but I noticed the colour of the line from the valve to the filter seemed odd. Am I getting unduly worried? It's not as bad as the picture makes it appear.

Not mine, I hasten to add. It's my personal trainer's Mother's. Oh, the dear soul.....


Here's what she tells me:


There were no codes displayed.
It remained in the soak cycle for a long time.
Appeared not to spin.
Initially rearranged the load before restarting and it continued as before. It was making a whirring notice like it was going to spin. I tried other cycles same thing.
 I let the machine sit for about 10 or 15 minutes. put it on the rinse & spin cycle;  it started to fill; sounded fine for about several minutes then did the same as with the other cycles.
It's been a long time since I saw one of these, although a read of the "Job Aid" book has refreshed the memory somewhat as to just what junk they were. Any thoughts from those more up to date than myself?

Long time no see!


My Friggidaire dishwasher isn't cleaning intermittently - coincidental to this, I'm getting "water hammer" when it's filling. Dishwashers aren't my subject, but I'm thinking water valve. I'm sure some of my long-lost friends here will put me right.....

Bit of a "physician, heal thyself" moment here.

Couple of nights ago, some vegetable samosas went on fire in this unit. After some investigation, I noticed what appears to be some chips out of the interior. Any way to fix this, or is it off to the landfill? I throw myself at the mercy of my peers, as microwaves aren't my topic.
