Check the check valve (where the drain hose connects to the pump). You may find some debris in there...

#301423 Bosch Dishwasher Model #SHU43C06UC/17

There are ample signs of mice. 

Those critters LOVE to eat the styrofoam disc on the bottom left front just below the " pressure chamber".Part number: 165301

Part number: 165301


And, BTW, BSH has identified a potential problem associated with the dishwasher control module. In rare instances the control can fail in such a way that could cause a potential fire hazard to consumers.

#301421 whirlpool wdt910ssym3 dishwasher

Posted by Chat_in_FL on Today, 06:27 AM

The dishwasher running 1 hour is normal. This is a set time and there is no way to change it

The one hour wash in the minimal setting for this model, bypassing wait times for sensing water temp, etc.

Selecting other cycles and options can increase the wash time upto 3 hours to obtain desired temperatures and to satisfy optic sensors.

Agreed, repair cost approaching replacement cost...

Closest thing I found, no idea if it will work for your application.

Yes, this board has been modified (beefier relays), but also know that LG is infamous for sending the wrong board as repair parts.

#299725 DCS DD224C Dishwasher Top Drawer Not working

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 28 July 2014 - 04:23 AM

Sounds like a stuck/seized rotor from lack of use. You may be able to free it up by hand, but more likely it has corroded and the rotor and/or motor may need to be replaced.

#299662 Kitchenaid gas range KGST307HBS4 How do you remove oven door?

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 27 July 2014 - 07:50 AM

Did not see the holes in the hinge in the  pictures.....


Me either:


1. To remove the oven door, open the door to its first stop.
2. Grasp the sides of the door, lift it slightly, and pull the door forward until the hinge hangers are partially out of the slots in the chassis. Do not completely remove the hinge hangers from the slots, since there will be spring tension on them.

3. Reposition the angle of the door to its vertical position to remove the spring tension on the hinge hangers, then pull the hangers the rest of the way out of the chassis slots.

I think you are on the right track, sounds like a stuck high voltage relay...

#299528 GE Household Microwave Convection Oven Model # JVM1490WD 003

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 25 July 2014 - 06:03 AM

I own a GE microwave that is mounted over my range and below cabinetry.

Recently the fan has begun going off at random times: when we go up or down the stairs,

moving about the kitchen, and consistently when we pull on the handle to open the door.

The number of times the fan goes off per day has gone from funny to annoying, so there's 

got to be a fix!


I suspect a monitor switch or a microswitch, as the keypad works when I push "off" for the

fan. But, I would appreciate any insights that can be offered so that I can repair my microwave.

Has anyone else had their GE Microwave Model #JVM1490WD 003, Serial #MA902325K 

have a fan that acts possessed?


Thanks--in advance--for your help!


"as the keypad works when I push "off" for the fan." I would suspect the keypad, since "off" turns it off, there may be an intermittent short in the keypad cirucit that turns it on. I assume you are referring to the vent fan?

#299527 Whirpool Oven Door can't get it back on right - Model WFG361LVS

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 25 July 2014 - 05:58 AM

To reinstall the oven door:
1. Grasp the sides of the door and tilt it back at a slight angle, then insert the hinge hangers into the hinge slots as far as they will go.
2. Rotate the top of the door towards the oven so the hinge hangers fit onto the support pins.
3. Close the oven door as far as the pins will allow, and make sure that the hinge hangers are fully seated on the support pins. If they are not seated properly, the door will not close tightly and may be off-center. To seat the hinge hangers, open the door slightly, and push in on the bottom until the hangers are fully seated.
4. Open the oven door to its fully open position and remove the two hinge hanger pins.
5. Close the oven door completely and check

#299524 Bosch Dishwasher SHE43F15UC/64 trips main fuse

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 25 July 2014 - 05:18 AM

When you say "fuse" I'm assuming you mean circuit breaker? If so, then I would start by replacing the circuit breaker for the dishwasher circuit. It may also be original from the 70s. They do need to be replaced periodically. One sign is if they start failing under load, which sounds like it may be the case with yours.

I prove this to customers using a clamp-on ampmeter. When the current draw is (much) less than the circuit breaker rating, and the circuit breaker continues to trip, replace the breaker.

#299383 Voicemail messages

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 23 July 2014 - 05:32 AM

I hate it when they say call ahead to meet them  and I get their voicemail or the voicemail is full.  I have been burned so many times by that, I go and do another call. If they don't call back, it's their problem, not mine.


or the person was too lazy to even set up their mailbox, or they gave you a wrong number, or someone picks up and has no idea what is supposed to be repaired or why...
