#320619 Maytag refrigerator/freezer MFD2561HES 115 degrees

Brian,  That is genius!  My wife just took the picture when she called me.  I wasn't at home.  When I got home, it was back down to 41.  There is a door alarm, but I bet you are correct.  Either one door was left open or somehow the switch didn't turn off the light.  I've been racking my brain as to how it could get that hot??  The light bulb is the only answer!  Thanks for the insight.

#318911 GE Washer gtwn4950l0ws not enough water

Thanks Eric.  Good explanation.  I agree with your hate for these water saving washers.  Many times, after the wash cycle is complete, the clothes on the top 1/3 are completely dry...  Olyteddy's answer helps in understanding you should not interrupt the fill cycle to add extra clothes, or for any reason.  Maybe it rocks back and forth during the fill to allow for better adsorption of the water by the clothes to try and get the loading more accurate?  The old way of choosing your load is far superior.  

#253888 GE GTWN4950L0WS washer - chattering noise under tub

Posted by miamihoosier on 06 May 2013 - 07:36 AM

Just chalked up another lesson...  Finally got it apart.  Transmission fine.  Ok, I'm an idiot.  It was such an odd noise, like metal grating on plastic. I couldn't pin it down earlier.  Re-assembled.  Thought it was somehow a bad plastic coupler, even though it looked fine.  Tried it again re-assembled.  Same noise.  Looked much harder to pin it down.  So simple.  Something in the drain hose against the pump slightly.  Bra wire!!!  Attached File  Wire.jpg   24.12KB   1 downloads How could it get there???  Who knows.  Removed.  Works great.
