#325206 Frigidaire Front Load Washer - ATF7000EE0 - Not Spinning

Posted by SANTA on 23 July 2015 - 10:39 PM

The service mode on this washer bypasses the door lock.

#312967 repairing oven door latch in kitchenaid oven

Posted by SANTA on 08 February 2015 - 02:55 PM

It's a very lengthy detailed procedure to get to the bottom latch. It involves taking the oven out. Separating the top from the bottom and cutting the sheet metal to reveal the latch. It's like the engineers thought the latch would never fail. You will need the service manual.

I would like to give a great big shout out to Whirlpool for putting me in a higher tax bracket.shout_out.jpg

#298728 GE gas range JGSP28SEK4SS bake ignitor screws hard to remove

Posted by SANTA on 15 July 2014 - 08:32 PM

I've found that a couple drops of zoom oil or similar lubricant on the back of the screw before you try to loosen it works well. Someone else mentioned that a long time ago in another post and I tried it and it has worked every time. I've used the mini hack saw method before. Not fun. 

#292998 Kenmore model #110.67751600 - high-pitched squealing

Posted by SANTA on 07 May 2014 - 07:42 PM

  It's best to buy the whole kit and replace all the moving parts. You don't know for sure the idler pulley is the problem until you take the dryer apart. There are 4 drum rollers inside also. Any one of those could be worn out.Part number: 4392067

Part number: 4392067

 Preventative maintenance is cheaper than a new dryer.

#291265 Door latch on Frigidaire dryer fell into unit - FAQE7077KW0. How to repair?

Part number: AP2107362



Is this the part you are describing? If so there is a demo video to watch. No need to take the dryer apart. Don't worry about the piece that fell into the dryer. It won't hurt anything.

#290320 How to test ERC on Kenmore 790.9611 oven

Posted by SANTA on 08 April 2014 - 09:24 PM

One thing to note. The new ERC doesn't come with the overlay. You can carefully peel the old one off with a putty knife and restick it to the new control or buy the new overlay.

#287789 GE Hydrowave WWSE240G2WW washer motor mount scrapes in operation

Posted by SANTA on 14 March 2014 - 10:39 AM

I believe the model # is WWSE5240G2WW. You can replace just the front frame piece. I don't think the suspension rods are the problem. #366 in diagram. Part #WH16X10117



#285973 GE Dryer DDE4000MALWH

Posted by SANTA on 24 February 2014 - 10:20 PM

Notice the relocated control panel on the side wall. One of the luckiest days I've ever had. The complaint was the dryer would not start. The door switch was bad. The only component I could get to and test without doing carpentry work.
