The drain pumps are famous for making weird noises ==> http://www.repaircli...mber=MAV7700AWW

Can you make a video of the machine running with the front panel removed? Then post that video to youtube and post the link here so we can see it.

#225664 Whirlpool microwave - no heat. GMH6185XVS1

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 29 February 2012 - 07:29 PM

When you tested the magnetron, did you apply the Willie Method™ ==> The Willie Method™ for testing a microwave oven magnetron tube


#225653 GE Profile (PDW7300G00BB) dishwasher - no water pumping

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 29 February 2012 - 05:19 PM

Are you saying water is not flowing into the basin when you start a cycle? If so, then yes, begin your investigation at the water inlet valve ==> http://www.repaircli...er=PDW7300G00BB

It's located behind the kickplate.

You can check the valve coil for continuity. A better check would be to see if it's getting 120vac when the dishwasher should be filling.

#225516 Frigidaire, FGUS263LP2, Refrigerator, removing cracked condesate pan

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 28 February 2012 - 01:50 PM

...why would they put that there where it is a pain to get to.


Well, it's a long story but legend has it that many moons ago, a service tech was fooling around with a Frigidaire engineer's wife and the engineer found out about it. He was later promoted to VP of Engineering for Frigidaire and made it his personal mission in life to make every appliance service technician's job a living Hell. He did this by ordering all his engineers to specifically design Frigidaire products so they were a PITA to work on.

Your drain pan is another example of this. You might try repairing it with some epoxy first. Failing that, you can remove the condensate drain pan by tilting the refrigerator forward and removing the two screws underneath.
