First no ice, now no water - Frigidaire FRS26ZSGB4

04 January 2012 - 06:53 PM

Have a Frigidaire FRS26ZSGB4 that has been in loyal service for about 12 years with very few issues.

Recently, the ice maker started to make less ice and eventually stopped altogether.

Around a month later, I started noting a loud buzzing while trying to dispense water and now that function no longer works either.

After poking around the forum for a while, I found that the likely culprit is the water inlet valve, but my luck it appears there are two of them on this unit and they are around $50 apiece.

Water Inlet Valve

Item #452316

So, based on the description above, whioch one should I replace first? Or is there a good way to isolate the faulty one?

The second one seems the be the primary valve, witht the first is the secondary, so I'm thinking #452316 is my best bet, but I hate just swapping parts and praying...

Thanks! -Phil

WhirlPool GSQ9364HQ0 - only agitates in one direction?

18 June 2007 - 08:06 AM

I've got a WhirlPool Gold Ultimate Care II Heavy Duty Super Capacity Plus QuietWash Top-loading washing machine, model #GSQ9364HQ0.  Bought around 5-7 years ago...

My wife tells me that the agitator no longer turns in both directions and that it winds up all the clothes and then starts bouncing around when it hits the spin cycle.  I am proud to say that I don't think I have ever used it and therefore cannot recall if it ever turned in both directions, so I'll have to assume she knows what she's talking about.  Now if you want to know about the snowblower, hedge cutters, lawnmower, weed-wacker, or edger I can give you an earful from lots of 1st hand experience...  :-)

I yanked the water feeds, the drain, and the power and turned the machine in it's side to visually inspect the coupler it it is entact and appears to be functional, although I did not disasseble it further - I did grab it and the little white tabs seem to be attached on both sides and the unit itself seems in good condition.

Assuming that it is good, why ELSE would the machine stop turning both ways (now only one way).  Perhaps the tranmission?  If so, is this worth servicing the tranny or should I just get a whole new one?

The tranny is about $125 and a new washer is at least $400 for something comparable, but before I start ripping it apart (or pay someone to do so) I wanted to get opinions on whether or not it is worth it, etc.

Thanks for any/all advice!
