#303404 GE dishwasher gsd5560g00ss repair help WD26X10013

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 16 September 2014 - 06:33 AM

Ignore the drain solenoid, doesn't need any electrical connections.  Yours doesn't use the main wash pump/motor to drain, it has a separate pump just for drain.




#302892 Maytag dryer mde2400ayw warm air but not hot

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 09 September 2014 - 06:33 AM

You will have to check the heater at the molex connector that connects the heater to the heater wiring harnes that goes to the control board.

 

Testing from the control board, the way it is set up, there is no way to tell if one element is burned out or not.  Both coils in the element are 1000 watts each and are always on at the same time so checking from just the two heater wires at the control board will show the same ohm reading if both heating coils are good or either one is burned out, both conditions will give same ohm reading.  Only condition that would show up is both coils burnt out.

 

If you check from 5 to 6 on the heater connector and get an open reading then one of the coils are bad.  Checking from 1 to 5 and 1 to 6 on the heater molex plug will check each coil seperately, they should both be the same ohm reading.

#302784 Kenmore C970-615022 Smooth top range F-R Dual Burner Issue

Swap the RED and BLACK wires and you will be back in business.

 

The diagram in the upper left corner is the one for your cooktop.

Check the heating element, it has two seperate coils in it, one could be broken so only heating at half the normal output.




#302778 Frigidaire Washer GLTF2940FS2- randomly lights up

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 08 September 2014 - 06:27 AM

To change the control panel you will have to remove the dryer.  The main user interface/control board shouldn't be a problem for you to replace once the dryer is removed.

 

Check all the push buttons and make sure none are slightly jammed down which whould possibly be slightly pushing on the button inside the user interface/control board making the button have a hair trigger and activating the console.   One of the actually micro buttons on the printed circuit board could have also collapsed causing the same type problem.




#302728 Maytag MGR5765QDW power boost burner

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 07 September 2014 - 07:33 AM

As with all brands of gas ranges with this burner sytle, the orifices start getting plugged over time from the impurities/oils in the gas sticking to the orifice opening causing the opening to get smaller over time - thus a smaller flame.

 

If this is on natural gas the easy way to clean the orifices without damaging/enlarging them is to unbend a small size paper clip and on one end make a loop in in so that you can't drop it down the oriface.  Remove all the burner caps and heads, run the straightened paper clip in and out of the center of each oriface hole and reassemble.   The burner flames will all be like new again.

 

If you range is on LP gas the right/rear burner is sometimes a small 5,000 BTU burner and the small size paper clip won't fit down the oriface.




#302723 LG WM2101HW Wash Thermistor Part #

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 07 September 2014 - 07:03 AM

And, as far as location, on yours the thermistor is included as part of the heater.  To replace it you would have to replace the complete heater assembly Part ref# K320 in the 'Drum And Tub Parts' section.

Part number: AEG33121501

Part number: AEG33121501

 

The parts breakdown for you model shows the thermistor next to the heater but with a note for only a specific model number, (not yours), and the ref# K310 not circled which is also not listed in the parts list.

 

I don't do much LG work but from what I've seen with this problem in these forums I would be looking more towards the two solutions above my post not the actual thermistor but connections between the control and the thermistor connection.




#302671 KitchenAid direct-drive washer: can't remove inner tub KAWS750GT1

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 06 September 2014 - 06:54 AM

Put the spanner nut back on but but only level with the top of the drive block, not tight.

 

Take your spanner wrench and place the end of one handle on the top of the drive block and spanner nut and smack it really good with a 2 lb. sledge hammer on the other end of the handle, go all the way around, then try the standard push down really hard and then jerk upwards on front edge of spin basket.  

 

Usually just the strong push down at the front edge of spin basket and jerk back up will remove them but if that doesn't work I've never had the above method fail - I've had one or two that I was never able to get loose before I heard of the above method.




#302447 Roper Washer RAS7233JQO agitates, spins, won't drain

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 03 September 2014 - 07:06 AM

You might need to remove all the hoses in the drain system and check them all for any kind of obstruction.

 

I had a Kitchen-aid built by Whirlpool that would drain fine everytime I tried it but after I was gone and a load or two done it would fail to drain again.

 

I found the 1 1/2" round cap insert from a detergent bottle floating in the drain hose, it would move around and act like a stop gate valve opening and closing at random.




#302298 Kenmore Cooktop Model#32432 burner with heavy flame

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 01 September 2014 - 07:25 AM

Also, make sure you haven't mistakenly swaped the L/F and R/F burner caps.  If you have, the big R/F burner cap may sit and seal on the smaller L/F but the L/F cap if put on the R/F burner would be too small and not sit down correctly sealing the burner head to the cap and would let flame come out all the way around the burner instead of just out the correct burner slots in the burner head.

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 01 September 2014 - 07:13 AM

From what you have described I can tell you it's going to be the touchpad/console that you need to replace.

 

The keypad matrixes never go 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 or anything like that for each specific key, one group of keys will all be like, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, then another group will be 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, 5-4.  There's really know way to know what two traces go to any specific key without a techsheet that spells it out.

 

There are small diodes in the console keypad traces that keep the same keys that are all on one trace from feeding back to each other and one line trace can be bad which would cause multiple keys to be bad.

 

The test Chat_in_FL described above is sometimes the only way to know for sure if you want to prove it to yourself before purchasing a new control console.  Your Kenmore is built by Whirlpool and most of the Whirlpool built dishwashers of your vintage and sytle the above test will work on.  They don't always have a keypad matrix layout on the techsheets to even try to test with a meter for each individual key function.




#302255 Subzero 650 freezer fan making rattling sound

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 31 August 2014 - 08:49 AM

Refrig and freezer sections are completely independent of each other.  If the noise was still there when you had the refrig door open, (refrig fan would be off with door open), but stopped when you opened the freezer then the problem is with the freezer fan not the refrig fan.

Had to do a double take on that one, "Refrigerator with Hot water"?  Never heard of that one before, checked out the service manual - quite interesting!




#302183 Kenmore washer 796.4044# is dropping dust on floor.

Posted by Budget Appliance Repair on 30 August 2014 - 07:27 AM

About the only thing that could be dropping gray dust is one of the counter weights has broken and is crumbling apart.  The wobble and noise would be expected if one of the counter weights has broken and is flopping loose on the tub.
