Cabrio WTW7340XW0 makes noise when agitating

04 May 2013 - 03:08 PM

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio, WTW7340XW0, that is about 2 1/2 years old.  It started making a clunking noise today when it is in the agitation mode.   If you put your hand on the side panel, about 3/4 the way up, sort of in line with the top of the tub, you can feel it the most there when it makes the noise.   Any ideas?  Thanks..

Whirlpool WTW7340 - HC code

04 June 2012 - 07:46 PM

I have had this washer for about a year and a half. All of the sudden it is giving me a "HC" code after each wash. I know it means the cold and hot water lines are reversed. But I haven't switched anything and the lines are hooked up correct. I assume there is a sensor somewhere? Any ideas or suggestions?


Water Heater Drain Valve Question - GE SE50T12TAH

06 January 2012 - 11:58 AM

I have an electric GE water heater, only about 4 years old, and I was testing an washing machine in my garage. So I hooked up a hose to my water heater drain valve to run hot water through the washer. But it didn't drain hot water, it might of gotten a little warm but not much. I thought it would of been close to as hot as what comes out in the house. I did check both elements and they checked out ok. And the bottom element comes on. So just curious if I was incorrect assuming the water should be pretty hot coming out of the drain valve?


GE SidebySide Ice Disperser loud and not crushing ice

02 March 2011 - 06:26 PM

I have a GE side by side, model GSS25QSTA, that is very loud when it drops ice out of the dispenser. And when you put it on crushed mode, about 95 percent of the ice coming out is cubed, very little gets so called crushed. It is more like some what broken cubes. Is there any way to adjust how much it is crushing? On how loud it is when it dispenses the ice, it is pretty much only when in the Cube mode...it drops a cube or two, clunk, another cube or two, clunk. It is like it has to start again...not very continuous.... Any ideas?

Maytag LAT9416AAE leaking - have questions

24 October 2010 - 08:36 AM

I was given a washer and dryer from a friend that had bought a new FL set.  The washer, Maytab LAT9416AAE, had a very small, water leak.  It looked like the tub seal.  So I ordered a new seal and tub bearing kit.   The old seal was coming apart when I took it off the tub.  The tub bearing slipped right off the shaft. 

I turned over the bottom of the basket and it looks like it has a lot of built up gunk.  I took a picture of the bottom of the basket.  Is it suppose to be clean, down to the metal tub?

Second question, when I pushed the old rubber bushing part of the tub bearing kit out of the tub, I didn't notice which way it was installed, the grooved part of the rubber bushing up or down? 

I put the grooves up, see picture below.

I then put the tub in, bolted it to the three support arms, hooked up the drain hose to the tub.   Slipped the seal on the tub, all the way down and the lip.  Then hand tightened the top piece, then tighted it with the spanner wrench about an 1/8 of a turn.  Then I put the allen head bolt in the top piece.  I then put water in the tub to check for leaks.  As the water got to the top in side piece, just below the top rubber seal on the transmission shaft water started coming out of the grooves and also out of the brass piece area. 

Any ideas?
