#224286 Kenmore dryer model 110.96283110 stopped heating

This video shows most of the tear down you're gonna be doing to get to those parts mentioned by Brother jumtrout:




#224260 Bosch WTMC6500UC/01 dryer door catch broke off

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 17 February 2012 - 04:55 PM

That's a molded piece, the little plastic tit is part of the mold. You'll need to either replace the entire plastic panel or perhaps you can rig something with a shaped piece of plastic, gorilla glue, and some imaaaaaagination. :blinky:

#224259 GSS23WSTASS GE SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR freezer keeps icing up

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 17 February 2012 - 04:37 PM

The defrost terminator, the button attached to the evaporator coil, is famous for failing open and breaking the defrost heater circuit. Sometimes it's visible if it's puffed up and distorted. Most of the time, you have to check for continuity with it at freezer temperature.


#224247 GE Profile Washer WPRB9220DWW has E43 trouble code.

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 17 February 2012 - 12:23 PM

The speed sensor is detecting spin stop times in excess of 25 seconds and the algorithm has decided that a brake failure has occurred. The washer will remain disabled until the code is reset in service mode. Service mode entry procedure is on the mini-manual inside the control panel.


#224243 Used Appliances

Topic moved to the Used Appliance Emporium. :)

Howdy neighbor, I live in New Hampster. Not sure how many you're looking for but I've gotten some cherry appliances that just needed a simple repair from the town stump dump. I'm pretty sure Vermont towns have stump dumps, too. This method works well if you're just looking for a used appliance here and there. If you're looking to buy in quantity, this probably would not be a good option because most of them are pretty badly damaged from being thrown on the white goods pile at the dump.

Good video! Can you tell if the noise seems louder at the front of the drum or in back. If front, it could just be a loos counterweight-- seen this on the Bosch's before but all FLers are susceptible to this. If the rear, then that is most likely a broken drum support spider. Go around back, remove the rear panel, remove the belt from the drum pulley, grab hold of it and try to move it. If it's moves, tighten it up and see if the noise goes away.

#224108 kenmore 110.29822800 washer adds more water at the end of the cycle

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 15 February 2012 - 09:31 PM

Maybe I was not clear. I am only using the cold water setting. Water is added after the spin cycle completes. Maybe a couple of inches but the casual setting does not add water.


Ahh, Grasshoppah, you are being misled by the choice of title applied to the switch. Do not confuse this switch with the one that Grand Master kdog posted.

For some reason, there is a problem with the communication between my camera and computer.


You could make the video with your smart phone and upload it directly from there to Youtube.

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 15 February 2012 - 07:46 PM

I'm looking at the tech sheet for a nearby model but it may not be accurate. It shows no turbidity sensor and no thermistor in this one. The tech sheet with your dishwasher has the final word. It's behind the toe panel.

If this is the case-- no turbidity sensor or thermistor-- then the only thing is can be is the main control board ==> Main Control Board


#224075 kitchen aid kbfa25erbl01 refrigerator, ice maker leaked then quit

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 15 February 2012 - 07:25 PM

Freezer needs to be 17F or less before the icemaker will kick into gear.
