Topics I've Started

Whirlpool E1F30LD035V water heater no hot water generated

26 January 2012 - 12:35 PM

It went out at the beginning of the week. Thought a thermostat had died, so replaced the upper and lower because they're not expensive. No go. Same with both elements. Still nothing.

We've replaced damn near everything: both thermostats and elements. My dad (retired electrician/ mechanic) came over with his fluke meter and we tested every danged circuit and wire just to find out it IS getting power to everything. For all intents this thing should be pushing out hot water but it isn't. Anyone have any ideas what's wrong?

Frig. FWT645RHS0 timer question

14 January 2011 - 02:37 PM

Had this front loader for quite a few years now and it's run great. The timer decided to act up on me (jiggling the knob to get through a cycle is annoying) roughly a year n a half ago so I replaced it. It quit outright again earlier this month (after the warranty expires, natch.) It's darned easy to replace a timer but this newest one is doing the blinky, knob-jiggle-to-run crap almost like the first one did. Now, I intend to send this one back under warranty but I was wondering: is it possible to repair a timer for cheap? I mean, are they repairable or is this just one of those things that has to be replaced whole? I've pretty much decided that I'm not gonna hang onto this washer when timers are a Benjy a pop, no matter how well it's run over the years.

TL:DR - Is the expensive timer in my washer a repairable item or should I consider shopping for new if it keeps going batty?
