LG Washer WM1815 shuts off during wash cycle

19 September 2014 - 12:14 PM

This LG washer has been intermittently shutting off during the wash cycle over the last 2 weeks.  I checked the filter, ran the diagnostics and everything looks OK.  It will start the wash cycle, then in the middle of the cycle it just powers off completely.  The circuit is not tripped and it Powers back on without any errors.  I can sometimes just get it to start the cycle again, but sometimes when I try to do that the drum will start to rotate, and after about 3 inches of rotating it just Powers off again.  The spin only option seems to always work when it gets stuck like this.  The loads are small, its not overloaded.  I just bought a new LG WM3050 that is going to get delviered tomorrow, but debating whether I want to trya nd fix this one now.  Any ideas?  Is this something easy to fix?

Water dispense hose on GE regrigerator loose

06 November 2010 - 09:34 AM

I have a GE profile arctica side by side refriegerator model # PSH23SGNAFBS that has a disconnected hose near the water valve.   There are 2 white/clear hoses that come down from inside the fridge from a hole above and directly behind the water valve.  One hose loops under the valve and connects to the bottom part of the blue part of the valve.  The other hose is disconnected.  When I use the water dispenser water flows out of this hose.  I have the service manual but I cannot see where this hose connects to .  Where does it go?  See attached for a picture of the hose.

Oven not working on DCS Range

28 September 2010 - 11:25 AM

I have a 6 year old DCS range and the oven bake is not working correctly.  When I turn it on I get a faint gas smell and eventually after 15 minutes I usually start getting some heat.  It will reach the desired temperature but then starts to lose temperature and wil not re-ignite.  It used to sometimes work OK.  Most recently it does not work at all, or always heats up but does not re-ignite not at all.  the broiler seems OK.

The problem seemed to start happening after I remodeled our kitchen and had to lift the range a little to get the floor under the front legs.  I did not move the range too much, just had to relevel.  It is almost perfectly level (maybe off a few millimiters).  I am going to try and re-level, could this be my problem?  Or is it more likely a different problem?

Kenmoer Elite steam dryer

04 February 2010 - 02:38 PM

I found a Kenmore Elite Steam Dryer model 68062 on Sale at Sears Outlet for $450.  50% off.  Is this a reliable model?  Anyone have any feedback feedback on the "Steam" setting, does it really help with wrinkles (I hate ironing)?

 Anyone aware of any issues with this model?  I tried to look for any forum posts and did not see much. 

They want $150 for an extended 3 year warrantly.  I know these are typically not worth it, but any advice on that?
