Amana Washer model LW8363L2 Serial R9508048606 leaking

24 April 2013 - 06:08 PM

This old gal dumped a bunch of water in my laundry room this morning while washing a mattress pad. I pulled the cover off this afternoon and there's water standing in the top of the pump but everything else was just about dried up. Ran a quick cycle to make sure the hoses weren't split, found that when the tub is spinning with a considerable amount of water in it, it leaks below the tub where it is slung against the sides, so I think what has happened was the tub seal has gone bad and the heavy water-logged mattress pad exacerbated the situation and it leaks worse when loaded.


2 questions:

1. Does this sound right or am I way off base, and

2. How big a job is this to replace? I posted for a service manual in the appropriate forum and not sure how long it may take, if anyone even has one.


This unit is about 16 years old....

Kenmore refrigerator problem with ice dispenser model 106.58962702

15 December 2012 - 12:23 PM

Hi gang, long time since I've been here but in need of professional advice. Have a friend that has the aforementioned Kenmore fridge and the ice dispenser won't hold ice as the flapper door isn't doing the right thing.  I pulled it apart and it appears one of the formed jaws on the ice dispenser housing is broken and the flapper is just sitting there with no support. Tried servall city and the parts place this site supports and servall said to call Sears. Called them, they're telling me the 'housing' is part of the door, not sold separately, and is nearly $600 delivered. That's a lot of dough to repair a 4 year old fridge, thought I'd float it by the pros here to see if anyone has any suggestions. 


In this drawing, it's item number 1:  http://c.searspartsd...02004-00008.png


Any helpful hints or suggestions? Thanks in advance... 

GE Model GSD2230Z02WW Dishwasher S/N LT781036B

28 March 2010 - 04:06 PM

All of a sudden dishwasher wouldn't fill, just sounded as if pump was running. I started looking a bit closer and at first thought it may have been a bad fill valve or stuck float. Checked float and it wasn't stuck, so I went ahead and put some water in the dishwasher manually and my first instinct was right, it is running. Sounds like it's stuck on the run cycle. Can't get it to fill, drain, nothing. Just run. Since it won't drain or fill, I suspect bad timer but am looking for confirmation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Amana Washer model LW8363L2 Serial R9508048606 agitation problem

15 September 2009 - 12:32 PM

Problem with aforementioned unit. It spins and the motor works in both ways. It doesn't agitate correctly nor does it stop spinning quickly, so I suspect this has something to do with the brakes. Video posted that shows the underside.


Thinking (hoping is a better word...) that this is brakes and not transmission. Any ideas? It seems like when it was working correctly, the drum would advance slightly and then lock, sequentially.

Thanks in advance,

Natural gas -> LP conversion of Whirlpool range model SF387PEYW

01 August 2008 - 03:19 AM

Greetings all,

The aforementioned range was donated to my hunting camp and I need to convert it for use with propane. However, it appears to be old enough that the model number doesn't show up on a google search. It is a four burner range with pilotless ignition, so I assume there are probably five orifices to be be replaced.

The paperwork indicates it takes a conversion kit, part number 4319116, which is also looking for a needle in a haystack.

What do I need to convert this besides orifices? I haven't looked over the unit just yet to see if the regulator has a nat/lp switch on it.

Thanks in advance,
